Overview

Love Only Once by Brenda Jernigan

BITTER BETRAYAL
Elizabeth Trent knew she was meant to marry Jonathan Hird, the dashing soldier who had miraculously returned from war, wounded but alive. And though his kisses thrilled her and his tender touch made her feel completely loved, she was leaving him at the altar. A terrible secret kept her from going through with her vows. All she could do was pray that he'd forgive her... that fate would one day bring him back to her.

SWEET REVENGE
Jilted and humiliated, Jonathan went to sea where a pirate's life made him bitter and cruel. Now he is back in England, where his best friend has begged him to help marry off his headstrong sister--Elizabeth Trent. At first, Jonathan refuses, but then, from the anger in his soul, he devises plan: to find Elizabeth the worst husband in Britain ... if only he can keep himself from wanting her all over again.

About the Author

CHRISTMAS IN CAMELOT has been on the Amazon Bestsellers list -

She grew up living the life of a tomboy – climbing trees, playing ball, and excluding starry-eyed romance from her daily repertoire. Brenda discovered the love of books while taking her son to Story Hour at the local library -- she was hooked. She set an ambitious goal and began work on her first novel. She continued to write six more novels in rapid succession. She figured having the same birthday as Ernest Hemingway couldn’t hurt.

Her books have been printed in several languages and her last book “Southern Seduction” written under the name of Alexandria Scott was printed in Russian.

Enjoyed this book very much L.d

I did appreciate the length and scope of this story. Apparently this is the second novel in a series, but it stands alone quite well. I just don't like using historical characters as part of a storyline, unless it's a non-fiction historical novel. And that's the main reason I give this book only 3 stars.

Ms. Jernigan has once again written a well researched, captivating, exciting story. She has brought Elizabeth and Jonathan to life in a story that will warm your heart and soul, as well as other parts of your body. One minute you'll be reaching for your winter coat, the next wishing you were wearing a bikini. Jonathan can warm up my chilblains any day. Once you read it you'll know what I mean. I highly recommend this book. What a great way to start the new year. I can't wait for Ms. Jernigan's next book Dance On The Wind.

THE ROMANCE READER - 'Ms. Jernigan sets the story very nicely, creating a steady pace with a few surprises thrown in to shake things up a bit! Now all I need to do is find a copy of THE DUKE'S LADY, and I'll be able to see how the story began with Adam and Jewel.'

Jonathan Hird returned from war wounded, but alive. He was to marry the woman he loved, Elizabeth Trent. But Elizabeth left him at the alter with no explanation. Her brother, Adam, was Jonathan's best friend; however, he would not tell his sister's reason for disappearing. She had made Adam promise.

Jonathan took to the sea with Jean and Pierre Lafitte for two years, returning only when word of his father's illness reached him. He meant for his visit to Adam to be brief and uneventful. Adam's wife was nearing her time for birthing their child. Therefore, Adam talked Jonathan into, not only caring for his father, but to find Elizabeth a husband since she was in that same area.

At the same time, Captain Lee (a dangerous enemy of Adam, Jonathan, and Elizabeth's - to name only a few), was back from the dead for revenge on them all!

***** An awesome tale! Fast paced and so full suspense I could not put it down! Don't begin reading this one until you have plenty of time or you may find yourself forgetting all your plans so you can see what happens on the next page. Highly recommended reading from an outstanding author! *****
