Wow! What a fabulous story! I have only read one other book by this author and I really enjoyed it, too. Now, after having read Forget Me Not, I plan to go back and read the other Regency novels she has written. Plus, I plan to purchase a print copy of this book for my bookshelf.
This story was a great introduction to a new series. The plight of Julia and Lucas, as they were thrown together in an arranged marriage, was a perfect set up for all manner of problems.
I felt so sorry for Julia. She had such trust issues and felt that she had been abandoned over and over again by her friend, Lucas, in the past. Now, to be his wife and feel unwanted was almost too much to bear.
As for Lucas…I really liked him, even though it took him a long time to understand what Julia struggled with and how his actions were causing so much angst for her.
I love that the author introduced all of “The Gents” to readers in this book. I can now look forward to each of these men getting their own happily-ever-after stories in this series. Forget Me Not was a wonderful novel, definitely a favorite read of mine this year. I wholeheartedly recommend it to fans of clean Regency romance.
I received a complimentary copy of this book. All opinions are my own.
ABOUT THE BOOK:
Julia Cummings has long been acquainted with loss-her mother, her brother, her sister, her friend, all gone too soon. But the loss that pushed her grief to the limit as a young girl was that of her best friend, Lucas Jonquil, who abandoned her without looking back. Now, eight years later, Lucas has returned to Lampton Park, and Julia has steeled herself-she will never forgive the man who broke her heart.
After losing too many of his friends and family to early deaths, Lucas vowed to live life to the fullest. And after traversing the world, he has returned from his adventures to find his family and home as he left them-except for Julia. The little girl he left behind has blossomed into a captivating lady, a lady who makes it clear she despises him. With little hope of reconciliation, the former friends are blindsided when their parents make a shocking announcement. Lucas and Julia have been betrothed without their knowledge and are to marry immediately. Now Lucas must rely on the help of his closest friends to win the heart of a lady who loathes him-a lady he’s coming to love more deeply every day.
