I am thrilled to have discovered another author who tells a captivating story. Ruth Axtell has definitely won me over with this book. I am so excited to go back and read her other titles. If you enjoy Regency Romances, this book is for you!
In A Heart’s Rebellion, Jessamine and her childhood best friend Megan have arrived in London for their first season. Jessamine’s heart has been broken by Megan’s brother, Rees Phillips. Jessamine and Megan are the wallflowers of the season until they meet Lancelot Marfleet who is the second son of an aristocrat. Lancelot is a vicar and not exactly the suitor Jessamine had hoped to win. Instead, she begins a flirtation with a gentleman with a less than stellar reputation. As Jessamine comes to terms with her lingering feelings for Rees, she opens herself up to possible ruination.
I could so feel Jessamine’s heartache in this book! There are many times I wanted to strangle her for her stupidity! I found myself rooting for Lancelot and longing to see the hero rescue the lady! This wonderful book could totally be a BBC mini series. A Heart’s Rebellion is the second book in a series, but I did not feel like I was missing out by not having read the first book, Moonlight Masquerade. However, I will be reading Moonlight Masquerade because I so enjoyed this book!
I was given a complimentary copy of this book by the publisher and NetGalley in exchange for an honest review. All opinions are my own and I have not been compensated.
