“She could still feel the warm skin of Lucien Grey’s neck, the tickle of his hair, the hard bones of his chest as he lifted her. She was reliving the touch, the taste, of a sensuous lower lip indelibly imprinted on her memory.”
Get ready to fall in love with this captivating English romance.
A kiss to reawaken them both…
Honeysuckle Rose finds much-needed solace in her great aunt’s garden. But her peace is threatened by her distracting and brooding neighbor, Lucien Grey. Once a high-flying news reporter, Lucien returned from the front line a changed man. Honey can see that beneath his frosty exterior is a heart waiting to be thawed. Can their unexpected but impossible-to-ignore midsummer kiss be the beginning of a fresh start…together?
Redeemed by Her Midsummer Kiss is my first Liz Fielding book, and I can tell you it won’t be my last. This book was heartwarming and so beautifully written. It felt like a true modern-day romance, and I loved every moment of it.
Honey and Lucien are lovely characters and a fabulous couple. Their first few encounters are what I would like to call meet-ugly; let’s just say there is no love lost between these two. Honey blames Lucien for killing her wildflowers, and Lucien just wants Honey to leave him alone. Both characters want nothing to do with each other. However, fate has other plans in store for them, and after an unexpected incident, they find themselves spending more and more time with each other. Their relationship really focuses on healing and learning to open one’s heart to the possibility of new love. I love that there wasn’t this insta love feeling to their relationship, the chemistry between them grows as the story progresses. It gives their relationship a sense of realism.
I fell in love with Liz’s lush descriptions of Honey’s garden. She did such a fabulous job bringing Honey’s garden to life; I could feel the warm breeze on my face, smell the gorgeous wildflowers, and hear the bees buzzing. All that garden talk had me wishing it was spring and I could go outside and work in my gardens.
I promise you will love this book from beginning to end.
Thank you, Harlequin and Mills and Boon for the advanced reading copy in exchange for an honest review.
