Thank you for joining me today I would have loved to review Heart of Stone by John Jackson but at the moment I'm completely snowed under a huge TBR pile so instead I'm delighted to be sharing a promo post. Lets take a look at the description for the book...
Genre: Historic FictionRelease Date: 24th October 2017
Publisher: Crooked Cat Books
When young and beautiful Mary Molesworth is forced to marry Robert Rochford, widowed heir to the earldom of Belfield, she finds that her idea of love is not returned. Jealous, cruel and manipulative, Robert ignores her after she has provided him with a male heir, preferring to spend his nights with his mistress. Power-hungry, Robert builds up a reputation that sees him reach for the highest positions in Ireland.
Caught in an unhappy marriage, Mary begins to grow closer to Robert’s younger brother, Arthur. Acknowledging their love for each other, they will risk everything to be together. But Robert’s revenge threatens their lives and tears them apart.
Will Mary and Arthur find a way to escape Robert’s clutches?
