"A Heart's Rebellion" by Ruth Axtell

About this book:

“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. When things go too far, Jessamine will learn that the man who is faithful through thick and thin is more worthy than the one who speaks pretty words. But will her disgrace keep Lance from reconsidering her as a wife? And when tragedy strikes and Lance becomes his father's heir and a titled gentleman, will he think she only wants him now because of his title?

 Series: “London Encounters” book #2 (I have not read book #1 in this series) {Actually, I didn’t know it was a series, I probably should have gotten & read the first book first as it looks like that would have help a bit}

Spiritual Content- Romans 8:1 in the beginning; Scriptures, Prayers & Blessing over food are said; Jessamine is a vicar’s daughter & Lancelot is a vicar.

Negative Content- Jessamine drinks champagne at parties & doesn’t feel well later.

Sexual Content- Please, please only read this spoiler if you’re 17 and up. *Spoiler* Jessamine gets drugged by a man and he takes her to a bedroom and kisses her & tries to lower her dress’s neckline. She, thankfully, gets saved by Lancelot before anything else happens. *End of Spoiler*; A very detailed kiss.

My personal Rating- 
If started off as a good book, but then….well….it changed. :( I’m sad that it had so much sexual content, I really thought I would enjoy this book.
