This book can be downloaded and read in iBooks on your Mac or iOS device.
Scoundrels, thieves and rebels inhabit the rookeries--where the women are fierce and the men are dangerous.
WHEN AN UNDERWORLD PRINCESS...
Beautiful, innocent Mina Mason has led a sheltered life as the sister to the most notorious crime lord in England. Her family's wealth and expectations keep her in a gilded cage, never able to act on her true desires. Like kissing -- and engaging in far more scandalous behavior with--Charlie Thatcher, her childhood best friend. As a member of a rival gang, Charlie is distinctly off-limits.
FALLS FOR THE WRONG MAN...
Charlie Thatcher has known since he was a boy where his loyalties should lie: with the Chapman Street Thieves, who saved him from a brutal death in the dark alleys of the Ratcliffe rookery. As a bartender for the Three Boars public house, he protects his fellow brothers with his mind and his fists. But when one of those members threatens Mina's safety, Charlie's primal, protective instincts are triggered--and his defense of her puts them both in danger.
PASSION MAY BE THEIR DOWNFALL.
Stealing the Rogue's Heart is a dark and gritty romantic suspense set in pre-Victorian working class London. While it is book four in the Rookery Rogues series, it can be read as a stand-alone historical romance novella.
One of the best romance books out
Mina and Charlie are like Romeo & Juliet (but they don't die) with some twists. I loved every minute of this book that I had a hard time putting it down. This is a great stand alone story but with the rest of the Rookery Rogues it all comes together perfectly.
Mina has lived a sheltered life under the watchful eye of her brothers. So needless to say she doesn't understand what is going on outside of the Kings.But she will always remember her first love...
Charlie is working for the Chapman gang as a bartender in the seedy part of London. He will always have a spot for Mina in his heart even though he thinks he isn't good enough for her.
One night has put these two in each others paths once again; and that one night will change everything forever.
