Description

Not for nothing is Gabriel Sinclair known as the King of Hearts. His wit beguiles, his charm seduces, and he's never met a woman he couldn't captivate. He's at home on the sea but nowhere else. As for family? He has seen enough madness in his own to last a lifetime. He shuns hopeless causes, deeper emotions, any whiff of permanence.

Widowed Louisa Peabody tolerates no man's touch. Her past has shown her men are seducers and abusers. She devotes herself to helping women in need, but her clumsy efforts often end in disaster. After she accidentally saves Gabriel's life, she persuades him to help her stage a daring rescue from a prison hulk in the Thames.

But it's a devil's bargain: Can she protect herself from that wild, reckless fire in his eyes? Can he care for anyone but himself?

The League of Rogues series features daring English lords who risk all for their country. Hardened and deadly, they have no use for love--until it ensnares them...

Review quote

"A truly lovely story of second chances and the healing power of love."

"Ms. Putman has something special going on within this series and I will definitely be back for any following books. Lovers of HR are sure to become engrossed in this book in no time. I found myself laughing out loud several times and then looking around to see if anyone was looking at me like I was crazy. ���� Anytime I do such a thing, I know I've found a gem that will always remain holding a coveted place on my shelf."

"This is a beautiful romance about love's transformative power with just the right amount of human quirkiness to make the characters more realistic and interesting and the story more lively and entertaining."

"A well-written romance novel that had my full attention the second I saw the beautiful cover. The story itself was just as enthralling."

"KING OF HEARTS takes Louisa and Gabriel on a journey from antagonism to partnership, to attraction, then to love. ...The path there is filled with obstacles and adventures, but the arrival is very satisfying. I particularly enjoyed Gabriel's peace in coming to terms with his family history. The secondary characters add some comic relief and some poignant stories of their own."

"Great read. One you have to read to get it all. He is really down on his luck and needs a second chance to straighten his life out. In comes a woman who is sassy with a mind of her own. This is exciting, fun, enjoyable, mysterious, emotional and so much more. I recommend it. It is one of those reads you can't put down."

"I so wish I could give you more than five stars. There is a lot going on in this story, intrigue, danger and laughing. It is a well rounded, even paced and very well written book. I laughed myself thru some of these chapters, so very good. The characters were believable, loyal and cared about one another. The descriptions were helpful especially when they almost drowned. I feel Ms. Putman wrote an exceptional tale that has all the elements to keep you interest and mesmerized to the very end."

"King of Hearts put me in that sweet spot that only a good romance can."
