Two blue lines. That means not pregnant, right? Right? Oh, sh*t.

Five years ago, Colm Frost asked me to marry him and I ran. I ran from my painful past too raw and fresh to escape. He was the only one who looked at me like I wasn’t broken and made me believe it. He made me feel it.

Now, he’s the hot, angry, hockey player on the mend. 

I’m the physiotherapist who’s supposed to get him back on his feet. 

I don’t think our night together was what his doctor prescribed, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t dreamt of him every time I close my eyes. I woke up beside him with my body still singing from the way he fanned the flames of my desire, but I couldn’t stay.

His lips on my neck. His hands wrapped around my waist. His impressive...ahem, touch leaving me breathless.

One moment of wild inhibition and it’s come back to bite me in the butt. Kind of like he did that night.

But a baby? Our night was supposed to be a one time thing, closing a door on the future I couldn’t handle. 

Will this new bump in the road be everything we needed to find our forever?

Heartless King is a standalone friends to enemies to lovers, accidental pregnancy romance that brings all the laugh out loud, angsty feels!

Did it seem to you that Colm's story took years and years to be released - or is that just me? I feel like I have waited forever and a day for his book, and how very cliché of me to say it was definitely worth the wait indeed.
Colm quite literally stole my heart. He was so many times throughout the book a stubborn so and so, but how he came in to his own and redeemed himself was truly magnificent to read. That he found his perfect partner in Imogen was really the icing on the cake. I adored her. She was strong when she needed to be but also wasn't shy in showing her vulnerability. Out of both the main characters she was the most realistic of the two.
But with all the greatness of this book, there is also sorrow. The Kings of Rittenhouse series has come to an end and whereas I am beyond happy that I was able to read them all, I feel a little hollow knowing that there will be no more. But having said that I do look forward to reading whatever Maya releases next. I voluntarily reviewed an advanced readers copy of this book

What a conclusion to this amazing series! First let me say I don’t think I’ve ever wanted to throat punch a guy as much as Colm! And I may of cheered out loud when he finally got it together to get all upset with Imogen! This book had so many ups and down and I absolutely loved it.

Colm and Imogen don’t have it easy. Reading their relationship is one I’ll remember forever. The issues they dealt with is something that could definitely happen in real life and there were no short cuts to get to their happily ever after.

The question had been running through my head all night: how could I get her to leave? But I didn’t want her to go. And now the maple syrup and cinnamon taste of her sent me hurtling close to the edge of my control. Those reserves were running on fumes. 
Everyone else had been run off by my anger or blinded by my money, but not her. If anything, she battled me, pushing me like she knew I needed it. She wouldn’t let me hide the splintered and cracked pieces of myself that I was barely holding together. 
She didn’t push me to talk, just slid in past my defenses and got me to say more than I should. 
“Do you want me to stop?” I ran my fingers through her hair, tugging on the roots. 
Her lips parted in a gasp and I deepened the kiss, needing to taste even more of her. She’d teased me, eating that French toast that smelled like a vanilla and cinnamon factory had exploded when it arrived at our table.
She stared into my eyes, heavy breaths shuddering past her lips. “Hell no.”

Author Bio

Maya Hughes, that's me!, can often be found sneaking in another chapter while hiding in the bathroom from her kids! :-) I'm a romance writer who loves taking inspiration from everyday life, namely my husband and biggest fan. Inspiration also strikes when I hear a song, meet someone new or daydream while at soccer practice.

I love writing stories that capture the possibilities of the paths less travelled and enjoy experiencing life through my characters’ eyes.

I'm the mom of three little ones, the wife to an amazing husband and also work full time. Some of my favorite things are cupcakes, cinnamon rolls, white wine, laughing until I can't breathe, traveling with my family and Jeff Goldblum.
