Book review: Thief of Hearts by Teresa Medeiros

Thief of HeartsThief of Hearts by Teresa Medeiros
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I don’t typically review the romances I read (although I read a lot of them!), but this one is an exception. The author is a recent discovery for me, and I’ve enjoyed reading all of her books so far, but this one was a cut above the rest. It’s difficult to say why, although I think it’s because the hero and heroine are both so well fleshed out in this book. The hero is handsome (of course!) but with a conflicted past, a thirst for (justifiable) revenge, and dark corners in his soul. The heroine is beautiful (naturally!) but has a distant parent, a repressed upbringing, and a spirit that has somehow flourished nonetheless. They make for a lovely couple. Add into that the choices each makes at different points in the book (revenge over compassion? principle over love? loyalty over truth?), and this book consists of a multi-layered, complex plot and characters. It is a book to soothe and nourish the romance in your soul (assuming you have some). 🙂
If historical romances are your thing, this is a must-read!
