The Dunsfield Family are struggling to survive. They are in dire financial straits. Society is shunning them because Andrew, their son, died a traitor. Things are so bad that Lindsay is being sacrificed. She has to marry a man old enough to be her grandfather. Things become more complicated when her first love, Jonathan Rycroft, returns. These two are soul mates, but honor and duty keep them apart. He's working as a spy for the War Office and is trying to bring a traitor to justice. His target is Lord Harold Grimsby, the man Lindsay is to marry. Can Lindsay and Jonathan find happiness together? Melissa Blue has written a passionate and suspenseful story. It is filled with so many unexpected twists. I never suspected the ending. It took me completely by surprise. I love Lindsay. She is no simpering, fragile miss. She is a strong, independent woman who will not be stopped from doing her duty to family and country. Jonathan has been wounded by life and doesn't feel worthy of her, but he won't give her up. These two struggle to overcome the past and to deal with a deadly present. This is the first book that I've read by this author, but it won't be the last. If you want passion and excitement you should read Confessions of Love.

I really enjoyed reading this book. It has both romance and intrigue, which I think is a great mix. Lindsay transforms through the story into a strong, courageous woman. That is unheard of in her era. Women were supposed to be meek and subservient. Men were supposed to be the strong, heroic types. I love that you find women are just as devious, intelligent, and daring as men in this book.
The romance is a story we've heard before, kind of. Boy and girl love each other, boy goes off to make his fortune and seemingly forgets about girl, then suddenly reappears in her life expecting her to fall back into his arms. Except that this story has a few twists and turns that you're not going to expect. Or, even if you do expect them, they are a treat to read. The characters practically sizzle each time they are near each other, no matter how they are feeling about each other or themselves at the time. Their chemistry just can't be denied.
I won't even get into the intrigue! Lets just say that people aren't always who or what they seem in this book. There are murderers, spies, liars, and thieves at every turn. It's a delight!
I highly recommend this book to any readers of adult romances and thrillers. The story is terrific, the characters are believable, and the writing is effortless to read. You'll find yourself at the end before you realize you've been sitting, enthralled, for hours.

Thrilling mystery, sweet romance, and a plot to catch a traitor. Confessions of Love was a fantastic historical romance. I loved this book!
Lindsay was a great heroine. She is incredibly loyal to her loved ones and, if saving them involves marrying a nasty old man, then that's what she's going to do. She was determined to clear her brother's name and to hell with the danger. She was very much a character defined by her love for other. That is what guides every one of her actions. But, that also made her susceptible to being manipulated by others. For example, why would her family feel like it was totally okay to sacrifice her for their own good? My only complaint about her was that she didn't trust Jonathon to take care of everything that he promised to take care of. He never gave any indication that he would break his word. Otherwise, I thought she was a lovely character.
Jonathan was also wonderful. He was so sweet. He a very determined character. He was dead set on proving the innocence of Lindsay's brother and freeing Lindsay from her engagement to a traitorous old man. Nothing was going to stop him, not even a risk to his own life. He was a strong, clever, and very sweet hero. I really liked him.
The romance was lovely. Lindsay and Jonathon were very sweet together. They might have been separate for 2 years, but they still loved each other. And, there were certainly sparks between them, made even greater by years of unfulfilled longing. I thought they were a wonderful couple.
The plot was fast paced and I was hooked the entire way though. The thrills were nonstop as the mystery of who the real traitor went on. I was on the edge of my seat with all the secrets and surprises and betrayals. The truth of who was behind the plot was a huge surprise that I only began to suspect a few pages before the reveal. I really enjoyed the story and the ending was lovely.
Confessions of Love was a fantastic historical romance. I loved this book! It was thrilling, romantic, and kept me completely hooked. Lovers of historical romance, this is a book you don't want to miss.

This was an intricate mystery novel that centers on Lindsey Dunfield and Johnathan Rycroft. It was well paced and had many
twists and turns in the plot line that surrounds the murder do her brother. The story is enjoyable, but a little too complicated for my personal taste. I would recommend this book for people who are looking for a mystery with a good dash of romance.
