Where the Stars Meet the Sea by Heidi Kimball, Blog Tour & Giveaway!!!

Book Summary:

A broken man. A fiery young woman. Neither one's heart will come away unscathed.

Juliet Graham fervently counts the days until her twenty-first birthday, when she can claim the inheritance that will grant her the freedom she has always craved and the guardianship of her younger brother. Until then, she is trapped under her aunt Agnes’s domineering will. When forced to accompany the family to a house party at Shaldorn Castle, Juliet’s only objective is to keep to herself. That is, until a chance encounter with a boorish stranger stirs up an unexpected whirlwind of emotions in her. Thrown off-balance, Juliet does the unthinkable: loses her temper and insults the man—who turns out to be her unwilling host, the Duke of Halstead. Fully expecting to be sent away, Juliet is surprised when the brusque and callous duke instead takes an interest in her. 

Drawn to the duke in unguarded moments, Juliet finds herself more and more intrigued by the man who shuns Society’s rules as completely as she does, and over the next few weeks, their unlikely friendship deepens into a connection neither expected. 

But even as Juliet comes to recognize her true feelings, her scheming aunt issues an ultimatum that threatens the future she was just beginning to hope for. Juliet must choose: either break the promise she made to herself years ago, or lose the man who has captured her heart and soul.

My Review:

Where the Stars Meet the Sea 

I was swept away by this beautiful and emotion-packed world that Kimball created. I could not put this book down, I just couldn’t. I was drawn in by Juliet’s station in life, not quite good enough to be considered for marriage to someone of the upper class, but not quite considered working class. She was beautiful, intelligent, and bold. She was refreshing 
and vibrant! And her aunt, man, she was so unkind and I have no idea how Juliet dealt with it with such grace. 

The duke was withdrawn, intimidating, yet thoughtful. The two together brought sparks you could feel flying off of the pages! I have highlighted quotes and I never do that with books. The emotional beauty of the story is something that has stayed with me long after I read the last page. I have already recommended this book to all of my book reading friends, this one will win awards. Hands down this is one of the best stories ever told.

Happy Reading!!!
