Young love is all too fleeting, as Harold Jonquil painfully discovered years ago when Sarah Sarvol, the niece of a neighboring landowner, captured his heart. After an idyllic few weeks in the throes of blossoming love, reality intervened. They could have no future. Following their disastrous parting, Harold attempted to push aside thoughts of love and regret, but Sarah has never left his heart. Now, years later, he has achieved his lifelong aspiration of becoming the local vicar. However, the role proves more difficult than he imagined. He feels hollow and uninspired—until the most important person in his past returns, challenging him as no one ever has.
When Sarah's ailing uncle summons her back to the family estate in England, there is only one person from her past she is reluctant to see again: Harold Jonquil, the only man who has ever claimed her heart. But when she comes face-to-face with her former beau, she hardly recognizes the aloof and dull man before her. She is determined to help Harold rediscover the passion he once felt toward his chosen profession. Soon, despite their exasperation with each other, they cannot deny the stirring of feelings long buried—but is it too late for second chances?
It’s been a long time since I’ve sat down and read a book start to finish. Sarah Eden got me out of my reading slump with Heart of a Vicar. Her Jonquil Brothers series is one of my favorites. A lively group of young men, their mater and wives. The pacing was a bit slow at first, but as soon as the vicar began to open up, so did the storyline. I love that he was a climber, and the little unorthodox bits of his personality which started to show up as soon as childhood friend, Sarah came into town. I admit, I even shed a few tears at the miracle near the end. Clean, witty Regency Romance. Start at book one and make your way through the entire series this summer!a Rafflecopter giveaway
