A Heart’s Rebellion is one of the books written by Ruth Axtell in the Regency Romance Series. Jessamine is a vicar’s daughter who is supposed to find a husband in London. Jessamine isn’t really interested in finding a husband because she is just getting over the fact that her friend’s brother decided to marry someone other than her. Lancelot Marfleet is a young Vicar who just returned from a mission trip, and he quickly begins to have feelings for Jessamine, who is not interested in him because of her past heartbreak.
While Jessamine wasn’t the easiest person to like at the beginning of the book, her character did grow on me. I think one of the biggest lessons she taught was that you don’t have to change yourself to be someone you’re not, like when she initially tried to change her looks to get the attention of men. Lancelot was a really great character because of his strong faith and his likeability.
Although this book is a part of a series, you can read it as a stand alone while still understanding what is going on during this Regency novel.
