In a world governed by unspoken rules, one young woman is about to break them all . . .
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.
Can Jessamine trust her heart to lead her to a love that proves true through thick and thin? Or will her rash actions close the door on the life she really desires?
Lose yourself in Ruth Axtell's sumptuous story of discovering one's true self and finding true love.

This is just the kind of historical romance that I love. There are beautiful clothes, and beautiful settings. One of the biggest problem in the regency age was the fact that women could not do what they wanted to, only men could decide their future.
The main character in a Heart's Rebellion is Jessamine, who is one woman who is done with all that nonsense. She will be the one to do what she wants to do and she will hopefully find her true love while being so rash that she is afraid that she may have ruined everything. I really liked the way that the characters were developed by the author. Ruth Axtell writes wonderful novels and this is one of her best. I give this book a 5/5. I was given this book by Revell Publishing and all opinions are my own.
