About the Book
The Circus Spektakulär is proud to present Jack McCabe: Fire-breather, knife-thrower, risk-taker.
My uncle lied. I never died.
I breathe fire, eat the poison that almost killed me.
Crowds come to see me night after night. Men for the spectacle, women for the thrill. I’m an oddity to be stared at and desired. With each flame I spit, I risk my life.
I wear scars on my body that will never go away, but the scars inside my head are far more difficult to overlook.
My brother doesn’t know the truth, and if I have it my way, he never will.
Life was going exactly the way I’d planned until Lille came along. She wanted to run away with the circus, have an adventure, but this world was never meant for her.
I try to keep her safe, because she doesn’t know the dangers that are out here on the road. She doesn’t know the monsters that lurk behind the bright lights of the ring. In truth, I could be considered one of them.
We were fashioned from different cloths, never intended to mix. So I watch her. I try not to touch, even when her eyes invite me.
Join us in the Spiegeltent and let us give you a show. Allow my Lille to draw a picture for you in paint and sweat and skin.
The truest love is always the hardest to let in.
*This is a standalone romance that tells the story of Jack McCabe, Jay Fields’ long lost, presumed dead brother. It is not necessary to have read Six of Hearts in order to enjoy Hearts of Fire.*
Six of Hearts
Hearts of Fire
Some marks last forever. You have to decide if they’re worth it.
For the last half an hour I’ve been trying to find the one word which would describe the best this novel and how much it made me feel. And I failed it easily.
Hearts of Fire can’t be described in only one word. It’s impossible.
Jack and Lille’s story is a phenomenal addiction I never want to stop. They are one of my favorite leads of all time.
I didn’t see him as a damaged little boy, I saw him as a unique, wonderful, yet very breakable grown man.
They both grew on me, fast. L.H. crafted them so brilliantly flawed and I simply lost myself completely in this story, flipping page after page, waiting to see what will happen next, especially waiting for unexpected that I knew will happen.
Jack is mysterious, intriguing, intense, complex character that I couldn’t wait to find more about. I wanted to know so desperately what happened in his life to shape him the way he is.
Lille is such an amazing character. I instantly adored her. Compassionate and inspiring, she is a character who goes for what she wants.
”I’m good scary, Lille. The kind that frightens bad scary.”
L.H. Cosway’s unique writing style is once again in the league of its own. It’s simply something I can’t get enough of. She always leaves me desperate for more because with each story she writes she shows an amazing range to her stories and details and how big her talent is. And with each story she writes she shows her magic again and again and that’s something that blows me away.
Experiment with your colours, but don’t experiment too much, or you’ll destroy the natural beauty.
Unquestionably, a must read for every book junkie.
