Where Hearts Meet by Maureen Driscoll

From the author of the Kellington and Emerson sagas of Regency Romance novels, comes the first book in a new series set in the early Victorian era.

Arabella Warren has been trying to find employment as a governess for several months. But after having to leave numerous households for unsavory reasons, she has found it next to impossible to attain a position in a decent home. Then she sees an advertisement in the newspaper for a widower seeking a wife to help care for his two children. She sets out to convince the man that he needs a governess, not a wife, and that she would be the perfect lady for the job.

Jonathan Graves still grieves the loss of his wife, even as he tries to create a happy home for his five-year-old twins. Knowing he will never love again, he believes the best solution is to enter into a marriage of convenience. His children will have a stepmother and he can go on loving the woman who passed away. But he is not prepared to meet the lady who will change all their lives forever.

WHERE HEARTS MEET is a love story about loss, love and starting over. It contains explicit language and graphic sex scenes. It also gives hope to anyone who wonders if it’s possible to love again.

In true Maureen Driscoll style, this story absolutely captured me from the very first page. This new group of girls at Jasmine cottage have me absolutely hooked. I just love every one of them for their own reason. This story is sweet, exciting, heart wrenching, and exhilarating, all in just over 200 pages.

Maureen is a master of intertwining stories. I love the cameos by beloved characters from the Emmerson family. It was so great to have a peak into Anna’s life! She was one of my favorite characters.

My favorite thing about Maureen Driscoll’s writing, is that she writes such wonderful children. This is nearly completely unique to her. Maureen’s children always behave appropriately for their ages, and get into scrapes accordingly. The mischievous twins featured in “Where Hearts Meet”  are no exception. I fell instantly in love with the rascals. They reminded me a bit of my own “Twinado”.

This book was wonderful. I do hope you’ll pick it up when you get a chance.
