REVIEW: A Heart's Rebellion by Ruth Axtell

A Heart's Rebellion

{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?

{My Review}

I give A Heart's Rebellion by Ruth Axtell a solid 3.5 stars. I always enjoy a good regency romance, but their are a few things that factored into this lower rating than most.

1. The character Jessamine kind of rubbed me the wrong way. She comes off as a spoiled brat.

2. It was pretty slow pace, at least for me. I much prefer a faster paced novel.

3. This novel definitely needed a bit more developing. More developing in the plot, the characters, etc. If there had been more development I would probably liked this story more.

So, this is your normal, run of the mill regency romance, but with some development issues. At least in my opinion. If ou enjoy a nice regency romance this book is for you.
