Author Spotlight: L.H. Cosway

Book+Main wouldn’t be what it is without our content creators—the authors who share their words in the form of Bites—which is why we want to take the time to spotlight these talented women and men. We’ll be spotlighting authors writing across a range of romance subgenres, introducing you to their books and their Bites, and giving you the chance to fall in love with their stories. This time around, we’re turning our spotlight in the direction of L.H. Cosway, author of the Hearts series and the modern Gothic romance, Beyond the Sea.

About L.H.

L.H. Cosway has a BA in English Literature and Greek and Roman Civilisation, and an MA in Postcolonial Literature. She lives in Dublin city. Her inspiration to write comes from music. Her favorite things in life include writing stories, vintage clothing, dark cabaret music, food, musical comedy, and of course, books.

She thinks that imperfect people are the most interesting kind. They tell the best stories.

Latest Release

L.H.’s latest release, Beyond the Sea, came out in early June. A modern Gothic romance, if you can tear your eyes away from that beautiful cover, you’ll find within a striking, haunting story. Already, L.H. has two Bites available for you to devour and of course we’re linking to them below because they are MUST READ Bites. #ShoutyCapsNecessary


On a lonely cliff beside the vast blue sea there is a house.

In the house there lives a girl, and in the girl there lives a dream.

Soon she’ll be as free as the fishes that swim beneath the water. But until then she bides her time and lives quietly, her every move ruled over by an uncaring, heartless stepmother.

The hope for freedom is all she has to hold onto. So close she can almost taste it. But when her stepmother’s estranged younger brother comes to stay, he presents a mystery that lures her in.

The girl doesn’t understand that beneath the allure of the unknown sometimes all we find are horrors. And in searching for the truth, her heart is in danger of falling like a rock to the bottom of the deep dark sea.

Beyond the Sea is a Gothic Romance set in modern times.


“A striking romance that had me gripped from start to finish with its suspenseful mystery and emotional intensity with a dark haunted backdrop.”

Debut Book

L.H.’s debut book, Painted Faces, was released in 2012. Which not only means you can go back to the start to fall in love with her words, but you can also experience eight years of quirky characters, gorgeous covers, five-star romances. There aren’t any Bites for Painted Faces (yet), but if you can’t wait to read it, we don’t blame you . . . especially when you factor in these amazing reviews:
