Scoundrels, thieves and rebels inhabit the rookeries–where the women are fierce and the men are dangerous. Are you willing to take the risk?
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, gritty, and sexy 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.
Christy Carlyle, USA Today Bestselling Author wrote:
"The loyalties are fierce, the violence is not sugar-coated and Ms. Monroe's descriptive prose really puts the reader slap-bang in the middle of the muddy streets and dank alleyways of the East End of London or sits them at the bar in the crowded, smoke-filled, gin-scented pub...the perfect introduction to the seamier, darker side of pre-Victorian London and this author's world of ordinary men and women doing what they must to keep body and soul together." -B Review

"Erica Monroe has a way of cutting straight to the emotional heart of a story and Stealing the Rogue's Heart is no exception. Her characters, full of fire and grit, and evocative rookeries setting grabbed me from the first page and wouldn't let go."
"The connection between Mina and Charlie was gentle and tender in a merciless environment displayed in a setting not typical of romance novels yet this was an epic love story. This action driven work moved at a quick clip accompanied by memorable exchanges. Ms. Monroe may not only have stolen a rogue's heart but her audience's with Stealing the Rogue's Heart."
