A Heart’s Rebellion

Axtell_finalMy latest regency romance, a sequel to A Moonlight Masquerade, will be available March 1. This regency follows the story of Jessamine Barry, who’d been in love with Rees Phillips, the hero of Moonlight, and had expected a proposal any day.

To her bitter disappointment, Rees met and fell in love with a Frenchwoman. The staid, self-controlled man she’d known most of her life had acted like a besotted fool, to the point of almost losing his reputation, career, and all that he held dear.

But he’d ended up happy, with a promotion, and a beautiful new wife.

Jessamine, who’s behaved like a proper vicar’s daughter all her life, never harming anyone or breaking any rules, is hurt, angry, and frustrated to say the least. When she has the opportunity to enjoy a season in London with her best friend, Rees’ younger sister, she goes with an attitude.

No more dutiful Christian woman who obeys all of society’s rules. She will be the one to break hearts this time around.

Playing by her own rules soon puts Jessamine in over her head. There to rescue her is Lancelot Marfleet, a younger son of an earl, one she has spurned up to now, because he is a vicar. She is determined not to marry a man like her father. But when he rescues her from a situation that could ruin her reputation, Jessamine is forced to reassess her values.

      Someday, hopefully! I’m not doing too much writing these days, but I did have an idea for her story, when I wrote A Heart’s Rebellion. Glad you keyed in on that!
