Genre: Regency Romance
Source: Received to review

Book Description:  Young love is all too fleeting, as Harold Jonquil painfully discovered years ago when Sarah Sarvol, the niece of a neighboring landowner, captured his heart. After an idyllic few weeks in the throes of blossoming love, reality intervened. They could have no future. Following their disastrous parting, Harold attempted to push aside thoughts of love and regret, but Sarah has never left his heart. Now, years later, he has achieved his lifelong aspiration of becoming the local vicar. However, the role proves more difficult than he imagined. He feels hollow and uninspired -- until the most important person in his past returns, challenging him as no one ever has.

When Sarah's ailing uncle summons her back to the family estate in England, there iso only one person from her past she is reluctant to see again: Harold Jonquil, the only man who has ever claimed her heart. But when she comes face-to-face with her former beau, she hardly recognizes the aloof and dull man before her. She is determined to help Harold rediscover the passion he once felt toward his chosen profession. Soon, despite their exasperation with each other, they cannot deny the stirring of feelings long buried-- but is it too late for second chances?

My thoughts:  Whenever a new book written by Sarah Eden comes out it immediately goes on my list to read.  She writes a book that appeals to me and that I enjoy.

Harry Jonquil has always been teased about his desire to become a vicar.  His brothers refer to him as "Holy Harry".  He tries to live up to the role he has chosen, losing himself in the process.  Years ago the woman that he cared for walked out of his life, he helped the process by pushing her away.  She is back and causing him all kinds of turmoil.  She sees that Harry has lost himself in his calling and challenges him to become a better vicar.

This book is fun!  I love the Jonquil brothers and getting to know each of them.  Harry has been a bit of a mystery in the other books.  He stands apart and alone.  He's just as interesting as his brothers but has suppressed his personality.  Sarah brings out the best in him.  Like I said, this book was fun to read.

This book can be read as a stand-alone, but I don't know why you wouldn't want to read the series.  Another "well done" book by one of my favorite authors.
