Having suffered the tragic death of his fiancée, Nathan struggles to open his wounded heart to love again...with a freshly broken heart and a child on the way, Vanessa strives to put the pieces of her fractured life back together...when fate finds a way to unite the two of them, will they be able to love again – or will the specter of heartache rear its gloomy head once more...?
In No Turning Back, author Deanna Jewel takes the reader through the familiar story of love lost, mourned, and regained – only with a considerably unique twist. Set against the backdrop of 1770’s London, Jewel’s engaging tale of budding romance is rife with the usual sentimental trappings, sure to gauge the interest of die hard romance fans. As an added bonus, though, Jewel provides the reader with lush descriptions of the distinctly aristocratic lifestyles of members of 18th Century London’s High Society, with a sharp eye toward historical detail. In so doing, Jewel ensures that her readers are caught up in a fantastical journey through the combined worlds of life, love, and history.
A rich, compelling narrative with a strong central storyline, No Turning Back is a welcome addition to the world of historical romance. A satisfying read.
