Description

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.

Our customer reviews

Ms. Axtell is a new to me author and a talented one she is! I thoroughly enjoyed this book from start to finish. Ms. Axtell blends coming of age, romance, true love, rebellion and determination with faith, hope and God's never ending love. I was a little iffy on my feelings of Jessamine at first. I thought she would be a whiner through the whole story. But, pleasantly, she was not and I found myself pulling for her as she learned to rebel against her own past and grasp her future. She was a sweet character and I am glad I had the chance to get to know her! And Lancelot. Now that is a man worth swooning over! I loved him from the start and found him witty and charming and down right enjoyable throughout the story. He lent the perfect depth to Jessamine and her torn heart! I definitely recommend this story with 4.5 stars! Ms. Axtell will take you on a whirlwind adventure ride and toss you emotions from happiness to bitterness to love. Fabulously done, and I can't wait to go back and read book 1 in this series, as well as looking forward to the next release by this talented lady!show more
