A HEART REVEALED
JOSI S. KILPACK
Amber Marie Sterlington, the Rage of the Season in Regency-era London, has her pick of men, and she knows what she wants most in a husband: a title and a fortune. Why would she ever marry for something as fickle as love? And why would she ever look twice at Thomas Richards, a third son of a country lord?
But when Amber’s social standing is threatened, the character of her future husband becomes far more important that his position. After a public humiliation, she finds herself exiled to Yorkshire. Alone except for her maid, Amber is faced with a future she never expected in a circumstance far below what she has known all her life. Humbled and lonely, Amber begins to wonder if isolation is for the best. Who could ever love her now?

Josi S. Kilpack hated to read until her mother handed her a copy of The Witch of Blackbird Pond when she was 13. From that day forward, she read everything she could get her hands on and accredits her writing “education” to the many novels she has “studied” since then. She began writing her first novel in 1998 and never stopped. Her novel, Sheep’s Clothing won the Whitney Award 2007 for Mystery/Suspense. Lemon Tart, the first book in the Sadie Hoffmiller Culinary Mystery series was a finalist in 2009. Josi currently lives in Willard Utah with her husband, children and super-cute cat.

A well crafted Regency England Romance. A compelling, entertaining and haunting tale. Simply mesmerizing to me. The characters were realistic, flawed with realistic struggles and challenges. A vivid account of the Regency-era- England. The heroine in this story is egoistic, not very nice, manipulative,vain, greedy, untruth worthy, and emotionless, but to understand her, you must understand her story. The hero is a nice guy, but again flawed. I felt deeply for the heroine, she has an inner beauty, but in order to find that, she must find herself. While, the storyline felt a bit rush at times, this is a satisfying read. It does has it slow moments as well, but not enough to stop a reader from continuing with the story. Not your run of the mill Historical Romance. If you are looking for a passion filled tale, is can’t it. But if you are looking for a story with flawed characters, struggles, challenges, faith, and an inner strength, than this is a story for your reading pleasure. A unique tale, with a satisfying ending. An enjoyable read!
