Multi-volume author Rosie Chapel introduces us to A Love Unquenchable:
Jessica Drummond, a bright and cheerful young woman, rarely gives romance, let alone love, a thought. Long hours working in her brother’s shipping office affords little chance of her ever meeting an eligible bachelor.
Duncan Barrington, veteran of the Napoleonic Wars, believes himself wounded in both body and soul. He has no intention of inflicting his demons on anyone, certainly not a beautiful and, in his opinion, irresponsible city lady.
One cold & snowy morning, the plight of a bedraggled puppy throws Jessica and Duncan together and, as a spark of something indefinable yet wholly unquenchable begins to burn, it is unclear who rescued whom.
This is the third book I have had the pleasure to read written by Rosie Chapel. I have found her writing to have a wonderful mix of action, dialogue, and scene-setting. She provides hours of wonderful reading pleasure. She is so adept at bringing her characters to life, I experience many of the emotions her characters display. This book is no exception as it brought laughter to me and some tears also, as all her books do.
This particular volume has something extra going for it. While the story is pretty typical of the genre, seemingly mismatched but chosen by Fate to be lovers; Rosie tackles a very contemporary issue of PTSD, and expertly weaves this new thread throughout the story. Bravo Rosie for a job superbly done!
This story is also connected to a previously written story, “Once Upon an Earl”, which I had the pleasure of reviewing at an earlier time.
This magnificent story gets 4.9 stars of 5. The score would have been higher except for a handful of spelling errors.
