A Heart’s Rebellion


Ruth Axtell


Thank you to the publisher for providing me a copy for my honest review





About the Book:


Dutiful Jessamine Barry is tired of waiting patiently for a man to decide her future. So even though Lancelot Marfleet, second son of an aristocrat, is taking an interest in her during the London season, she refuses to consider him as a suitor. Instead, she’s ready to take fashionable society by storm–and finds a rakish young man all too willing to help her do it. When things go too far, Jessamine will learn that the man who is faithful through thick and thin is more worthy than the one who speaks pretty words. But will her disgrace keep Lance from reconsidering her as a wife? And when tragedy strikes and Lance becomes his father’s heir and a titled gentleman, will he think she only wants him now because of his title?

Fans old and new will love this lush Regency London story of discovering one’s true self and finding one’s true love.

My Review:


A Heart’s Rebellion: A Regency Romance is the second book in the London Encounters series by Ruth Axtell. This is the first book by Ms. Axtell that I have read and I really enjoyed it. Set in 1815 London, England you have the story of Jessamine Barry who is longing to find love. Jessamine and her friend Megan go to London, Jessamine is heartbroken because the man she loved marries another. While in London, Jessamine encounters Lancelot Marfleet, the son of an aristocrat who takes interest in her but she refuses him.


A wonderful story set in the regency era and you will not be disappointed. Even though it is the second book in the series, it can be read as a stand-alone. I really enjoyed this book.
