Blog Tour~ Six of Hearts by L.H. Cosway

“Come on upstairs, and I’ll get you some antiseptic for that,” I whisper, touching his hand for a second. I slip off my heels and leave them at the bottom of the stairs.
He follows silently behind me, and I wonder if he’s checking out my arse again like last time. I don’t have the courage to turn around and investigate, though.
When we reach the bathroom, I pull a bottle of antiseptic from the shelf and some cotton wool from the cupboard. Jay sits down on the edge of the bathtub, watching me.
“You really shouldn’t have attacked that man,” I say. “I’ve had worse things said to me over the years.”
His eyes darken. “Who’s said worse to you, Matilda?”
I shrug it off. “Almost every time my friend Michelle and I go out, we get crude stuff shouted at us. I think it’s all part and parcel of being around drunk men with no filters.” I pause and amend, “The women can be fairly nasty at times, too.”
“Well, that’s probably because they’re jealous. And the men do it because they misguidedly think it’ll get them laid.”
I laugh softly and pour some antiseptic onto the cotton wool before sitting down beside him and bringing it to his hand. “‘Misguided’ is definitely the right word.”
When the cotton wool meets his knuckles, he hisses and curses, “Motherfucker.”
“You know what? You Boston-Irish swear even more than us Irish-Irish,” I joke.
“Yeah,” says Jay. “I’ve got a dirty mouth, but it’s mostly used for good.”
I glance at him. The way he’s looking at me makes me feel all funny and hot, so I hand him the cotton wool.
“There. You can finish yourself off,” I say, standing up.
I have to resist the urge to face palm when I see the size of his smile. Sometimes I think my brain might just be a gaping hole containing nothing but unconscious innuendo.
“You know what I mean,” I mutter as I open the door to leave.
“Oh, I know exactly what you mean,” Jay calls after me.
“I’m going to bed.”
“Sleep tight.”
I can still hear him chuckling as I close my bedroom door.

L.H. Cosway is the master when it comes to creative stories. MASTER! Every time I hear she is working on something new I get REALLY REALLY EXCITED. She never disappoints and she always surprises me with a story. She gets me excited about reading. She does more than just weave a perfect story full of unique and interesting characters and plots, she makes it an art form. Her brain is so imaginative and fantastic I want to spend a day lost in its mazes. No one can craft a story like her. Not only does she come up with the lovely and strange and mysterious and romantic she does it repeatedly. Book after book after book.  Six of Hearts is a spectacular story full of mysterious twists and turns and romantic moments. I read it in one sitting. Because L.H. Cosway books demand to be read in one sitting.   Our story is told by shy, sweet, innocent Matilda  who works for her attorney father by day and is a seamstress by night. Her life changes the minute Jay, a sexy as hell illusionist walks into the office looking for legal representation. Did you just swoon when you read illusionist? You should. Jay is as swoony as they come. You are in for a real treat. A friendship forms between the two but it is obvious that they both have feelings for each other. However, Jay has secrets, lots of secrets that he can't share...at least not yet.


As the secrets begin to unfold you fall more in love with the story and with Matilda and Jay. However, in true L.H. Cosway fashion she keeps us guessing how things are going to end. Which leads me to another thing I love about L.H. Cosway's writing. The fact that she finishes things, she WILL show you all her cards, you just have to wait for the big reveal. And let's face it, it's always worth the wait.

Another great read by Cosway! I know you all will enjoy this one too.
