    This was a nice addition to the series It was fun to see Celine back in this book But I really enjoyed watching the evolution of Jessamine as she pushes away Lancelot Marfleet for all the wrong reasons

    I did not realize that this book was a seuel until I was already knee deep in it While it stands alone fairly well I wonder if my perception of a few key characters would have been different if I had read the first bookAs it was Jessamine an

    What I LovedThis Regency picks up where the first book in the series left off but it can safely be read as a stand alone I liked that the characters I knew from the first book appeared in this one but I got to know them from Jessamine's point of view and they were not friends right away In fact neither were Jessamine and Lancelotuite the c

    This was a nice little book I got into the story and characters There was a moment towards the end where I found myself rolling my eyes and I wasn't the biggest fan of how things turned out But it was a nice bit of mind popcorn to occupy a few hours of my timeThe one thing I really liked about this book was tha

Able 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 worthy than the one who speaks pretty words But will her disgrace keep Lance from reconside I did not realize that this book was a seuel until I was already knee deep in it While it stands alone fairly well I wonder if my perception of a few key characters would have been different if I had read the first bookAs it was Jessamine and I did not get on At all She spent a good portion of the book being caught up in whining self pity and pining after another woman s man Oh my It was difficult to swallow Like a raw eggHer behavior toward Lancelot was just awful She was shallow and stuck up immediately dismissing him because of his looks After realizing who he was I expected her to be mortified and humbled But no she was all pride and conceit thinking herself better than himAs the story went on her self involvement reached a peak with her blaming everyone else for her feelings and obsessions as if she is purely a victim of her circumstances She may have been at one time but at this point she is choosing her own self destructive path She is no victim Even when Megan tries to gently direct her to God telling her to trust in His plans for her she hardens her heart and persistsJessamine s attitude and actions may be an accurate representation of how some people really think and behave but they are not people I could respect or stand to be around muchThat being said I did sympathize with her on a few points overhearing the brief words between Rees and Celine was humiliating I cannot even imagine Rees in general seemed to be rubbing it in her face from the beginning all the way to the end with his talk of wishing she had found a love like he had with Celine Why did he feel the need to compare the two Why talk about himself at all I also understood the root of her insecurities the cause and effect her comparing herself to Celine and trying to compete her seeking out what consoled her bruised ego even why she was repulsed by a man who seemed too timid and was too similar to both her father and former intended both of whom she blamed What I didn t understand is why she thought she was superior to him or even eual to him why she was so confident in her own appeal that she felt the need to rebuff his advances from the very firstIt was her total lack of humility and over abundance of insecurities which I believe drove her constant defensive position at every interaction with Lancelot I prefer characters who have a sense of humor Jessamine was constantly irritable and offended that kept me from being able to connect with her or believe in their romanceAs a side note I wasn t sure what to make of the drugging episode Initially it rubbed me the wrong way because it seemed way too modern and out of place Did that really happen back then It would seem so considering that Lancelot referenced a drug he was aware of The author must have done her homework here If that s the case it just seemed too extreme and poorly contrived that he would have the nerve to drug her and make off with her in public Perhaps he d thought her defenseless before but after Celine s arrival and their connection I d have thought the former Lady Wexham s position and influence would have been enough to end any dishonorable schemesThis is the first book I ve read by Ms Axtell and though I would have preferred to closely follow Megan s story rather than Jessamine s and I will likely not read the next book Delawney I might just go back and read the first book Celine appears to be a protagonist who is classy intelligent and generous She fell in love with a man because of his honor and respected that rather than trying to dissolve it my kind of heroine my kind of love story

Ring 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 titleFans old and new will love this lush Regency London story of discovering one's true self and finding one's true lov What I LovedThis Regency picks up where the first book in the series left off but it can safely be read as a stand alone I liked that the characters I knew from the first book appeared in this one but I got to know them from Jessamine s point of view and they were not friends right away In fact neither were Jessamine and Lancelotuite the contraryJessamine is still suffering from being freshly jilted Lancelot recently returned from the mission field is at a crossroads They meet awkwardly they form distorted impressions of each other and they are eually intrigued and put off by the other throughout the better part of the book Reminded me of Pride and Prejudice in an amusing and interesting wayWhat I Didn t Like As MuchThough the first part of the book was interesting it moved slightly slowly No matter for this was soon forgotten when disgrace and scandal enveloped Jessamine and tragedy tore through Lancelot s family The glittering opulence of the era and the entanglement of two hearts unsure whether each can trust the other make for a combination sure to entertain historical fiction lovers like myself

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 fashion What a wonderful regency novel Don t worry if you haven t read the first book Moonlight Masuerade A Heart s Rebellion can stand alone just fine However I have read Moonlight Masuerade and it was such a pleasure to get to visit with Celine and Rees again Now on to my review of A Heart s RebellionThe beginning of the book started a little slowly for me This is not actually a complaint I felt the author did a great job of setting the scene Jessamine Barry had been horribly hurt approximately a year earlier when the man she had been in love with since childhood broke her heart After waiting patiently and doing everything that a dutiful daughter should she felt jilted and unlovable When the chance comes to have a London season and remake her image she takes itLancelot Marfleet feels drawn to Jassamine but also very frustrated with the way she rebuffs him He does know that he feels protective of her and is concerned with her reckless behavior Lancelot is not the typical hero described in most romance novels however that does not diminish him in any way His strong character and caring personality uickly made me root for him to win Jessamine s heartI truly enjoyed A Heart s Rebellion London society and all of the trappings that make regency reads enjoyable are present in this book The author points to the importance of putting God first in your life Jessamine had a real problem with blaming God for her disappointments instead of trusting that He would guide her and perhaps had a better plan for her than she could envision The romance blooming between the main characters was sweet and satisfying and I loved the way the author ties up everything at the end of the story with a big romantic bow on it Such a delightful readI received a complimentary copy of A Heart s Rebellion from Baker Publishing Group in exchange for an honest review which I have givenYou can read this review on my blog at
