Review: Hearth and Home by Rebel Carter

Heart and Home by Rebel Carter

Title:  Hearth and Home

Author: Rebel Carter

Series: Gold Sky #2

4 stars out of five
4 stars – It was really good

Julian Baptiste is determined to find a love that is as strong as his parents. What he doesn’t expect is to fall after just one glimpse of Violet Shield. When an advertisement is placed for Violet to find a husband, Julian steps up to save her from the unwanted advances and becomes a mail order groom. 

Julian is a sweet man with his family, but the majority of society only sees the shrewd businessman and investor. Being in Gold Sky is a breath of fresh air for Julian and he finally relaxes and shows his true self to people, especially Violet. I liked Julian. He is protective, smart, and very business savvy, but he also has a sweet and fun side that is only seen by his family. I loved watching him let his walls down with Violet and show his true self. 

“Home isn’t a place, it’s something you carry with you.

I really liked Violet. Violet is a beautiful woman, who works hard. She just wants the freedom to be herself and do what she wants. Julian gives her the space to be her own woman and have the family she wants. I loved that Julian actually nourishes her artistic side and asks her to be his cartographer. He was so supportive of her ideas and feelings that I just couldn’t help but love him. Together they learn how to be happy and still pursue their own career paths. 

Overall, I really enjoyed seeing another Baptiste fall in love. After the epilogue I wish we could get a prequel book to get the parents story because it sounds like it would be a good one. If you are looking for a sweet and light historical romance set in the West check out this series.
