card

Here is my best explanation:

'heart perhaps' is the definition.
(heart is a kind of card)

'rogue broken by lover finally' is the wordplay.
'rogue' becomes 'cad' (I've seen this before**).
'broken by' is an insertion indicator.
'finally' says to take the final letters.
The last letter of 'lover' is 'r'.
'cad' going around 'r' is 'CARD'.

'in' is the link.
