Andrea Anderson has no clue of the thoughts churning around in the dark and dangerous ex-con’s head as he enters her classroom. In fact, she’s momentarily lost for words. Not in her entire teaching career has she had a student who looked quite like Stu Cross.
A widow at just twenty-eight, love is something Andie hasn’t considered a part of her life for a very long time. However, when lingering touches turn to whispered words and hot, searching stares, she begins to wonder if maybe she should take a leap of faith.
But Stu is in her class for a reason, and it has nothing to do with love. He’s there to burrow his way into her life and repay a debt, otherwise his family will suffer. Andie is the first person to show him true kindness since he left prison, and though he doesn’t want to mislead her, he doesn’t have another choice.
Before long, Stu can’t tell whether or not he’s acting anymore, and his feelings for Andie could throw all of his carefully crafted plans into complete and utter disarray.
**Can be read as a stand alone.

Heart series is one that I meant to get around reading never had a chance to . Until Thief of Hearts and discovered the  beautiful writing of Cosway. Whilst this is book five in the series, I soon found myself falling for the Cross Brothers especially Stu.

Stu is the lead in this novel and struggles with the choices that he has made. Two years in prison has changed him and now he wants to have a normal life.  So enrolling in adult education should be  the right first step. Instead he gets more then he ever bargains for when he meets his match in Andrea.

Andrea the teacher of the class who can’t wonder who is the fresh out of prison Stu is. She doesn’t miss his entrance or his boy for that matter. But she a teacher and he is a student.

Let me stop right here before I go any further and say that isn’t the cliché romance. They are both adults and whilst they grapple over that issue, their connection is telling them otherwise and they struggle to confine to the binds that they have.

Draw into their story , we watch Andrea and Stu grapple with this every day  .Stu wanting to make a difference in his life but hiding his difficulties from the world to see and Andrea who only wants the best for him , struggling to get through to him as Stu is quite a  presence and personality. Something unexpected

However there more to the picture for Stu,he may be there for an education but he got an ulterior motive…..

Cosway tale of a man seeking redemption who lost his way and try to do things the way he  knows how. Strucked a nerve, Stu has only known one life and now he is trying to start afresh at a normal life. A life we take for granted at times. He questioning things as  his past isn’t exactly gone and forget . The debt is hanging over his head and I loved how Cosway drove that into his heart , he was misguided but it takes one to know one.

As Andie may not appear misguided but she clueless what life can bring. She thought she had her happily ever after and  at the tender age of 28 she believes love isn’t on the cards for her. She wants to  do what she loves , teaching . Until Stu…

Stu and ANdie turn each others lives upside down, challenging  their conventions
