A Guarded Heart by Heidi Kimball, Blog Tour & Giveaway!!!
Three years after a shocking scandal destroyed her family and forced her into isolation, Eleanor Hayward finally has an opportunity to put her painful history and dashed hopes behind her. But reentering society is no simple task. In her cousin's glittering ballroom, Eleanor is stunned when she comes face-to-face with the man who broke her heart those years before.
Edmund Fletcher thought he had laid the past to rest until he unexpectedly encounters the woman who so nearly became his wife. Soon to be engaged to another, Edmund knows he must let go of the complicated feelings he harbors for Eleanor. However, when the Hayward scandal resurfaces and the truth behind their parting is revealed, Eleanor and Edmund are left reeling. Tormented by thoughts of what could have been, they realize it is impossible to rewrite history. But is there a future in which they might both find happiness—and true love?
I loved this book so much. It just welcomed me with open arms and kept me there until the very end. There are so many things I want to say about this book. It made me feel so many different emotions, it was not just a run-of-the-mill regency novel. There was depth to the characters and their relationships. I think one of the best parts of the novel is that you get both main characters' perspectives. You get to here from Eleanor and from Edmund. The entire time I kept thinking that there had to be a way that they could move beyond whatever happened in the past, surely they were still meant for each other. There are so many ups and downs; all of the emotions you can imagine are felt in this book. Anger, passion, love, hate, mistrust, understanding, hurt, pain, kindness....seriously this book made me feel. There is more than just romance to the story and every part of it kept me turning pages until the very last one.
