About Forget Me Not

forget me not

Nottinghamshire, 1785

Julia Cummings has long been acquainted with loss-her mother, her brother, her sister, her friend, all gone too soon.  But the loss that pushed her grief to the limit as a young girl was that of her best friend, Lucas Jonquil, who abandoned her without looking back.  Now, eight years later, Lucas has returned to Lampton Park, and Julia has steeled herself-she will never forgive the man who broke her heart.

After losing too many of his friends and family to early deaths, Lucas vowed to live life to the fullest.  And after traversing the world, he has returned from his adventures to find his family and home as he left them-except for Julia.  The little girl he left behind has blossomed into a captivating lady, a lady who makes it clear she despises him.  With little hope of reconciliation, the former friends are blindsided when their parents make a shocking announcement.  Lucas and Julia have been betrothed without their knowledge and are to marry immediately.  Now Lucas must rely on the help of his closest friends to win the heart of a lady who loathes him-a lady he’s coming to love more deeply every day.

My review

This book by Sarah M Eden is everything I wanted it to be. And more! I loved everything about it. And, even better, it’s the start to a brand new series.

This one features Julia and Lucas. They are the parents mentioned in many, many of this author’s books. It’s so much fun to see their love story. And how they came to be the people they were. I loved seeing the beginnings of so many stories.

Julia is a spitfire. Her personality matches her beautiful red hair. But everyone Julia has ever known has left her in one way or another. She had a couple of siblings die, as well as her mom. And now her dad is forcing her to marry, right away. And to a man that she knows will leave her again.

Lucas….I liked him. But like his friends say in this book, he’s a dunderhead. Lucas lives so much for adventure that he forgets to look around him and be happy with his life as it is. I liked the way he learned a little about himself that way. And learned to make sacrifices for Julia when he needed to. These two work so well together. I loved that!

I have to mention The Gents. That’s the name of the group of friends that Lucas belongs to. I LOVE these guys! They come along just when Julia and Lucas need them the most. And they make things better. I can’t wait to read each of their stories.

This is a great book. A must read for all Sarah Eden fans.

I was sent a copy of Forget Me Not as a gift from the publisher. All opinions are my own.
