Where the Stars Meet the Sea
By Heidi Kimball
Adult Historical Romance
Paperback, Audiobook & ebook, 256 Pages
March 2nd 2020 by Covenant Communications


A broken man. A fiery young woman. Neither one's heart will come away unscathed.

Juliet Graham fervently counts the days until her twenty-first birthday, when she can claim the inheritance that will grant her the freedom she has always craved and the guardianship of her younger brother. Until then, she is trapped under her aunt Agnes’s domineering will. When forced to accompany the family to a house party at Shaldorn Castle, Juliet’s only objective is to keep to herself. That is, until a chance encounter with a boorish stranger stirs up an unexpected whirlwind of emotions in her. Thrown off-balance, Juliet does the unthinkable: loses her temper and insults the man—who turns out to be her unwilling host, the Duke of Halstead. Fully expecting to be sent away, Juliet is surprised when the brusque and callous duke instead takes an interest in her.

Drawn to the duke in unguarded moments, Juliet finds herself more and more intrigued by the man who shuns Society’s rules as completely as she does, and over the next few weeks, their unlikely friendship deepens into a connection neither expected.

But even as Juliet comes to recognize her true feelings, her scheming aunt issues an ultimatum that threatens the future she was just beginning to hope for. Juliet must choose: either break the promise she made to herself years ago, or lose the man who has captured her heart and soul.

My Review

WHERE THE STARS MEET THE SEA is a story of sacrifice, romance and hope. With endearing characters, fantastic romantic tension, complex family dynamics, and a story set mostly during a Regency house party, this is sure to delight Regency and historical romance fans!

I fell in love with these characters from the start. Juliet is a woman who has almost lost everything but somehow is surviving under her aunt's brittle thumb. The Duke of Halstead feels as if he has lost everything as well after an accident that has left him physically altered. The tension between them that just fuels their banter and attraction was fantastic! The story plays off the hate-ro-love trope a bit, which is one of my favorites. I loved seeing them circle each other and slowly open up to a friendship and then finding the possibility of more. It was easy to cheer them on. Of course, a happily-ever-after wasn't easy, but it definitely was worth the wait!

In the end, was it what I wished for? I'd definitely recommend this one to fans of Pride and Prejudice and Regency romance. It was delightful, heartfelt, and enjoyable from beginning to end!

About the Author

At a young age Heidi perfected the art of hiding out so she could read instead of doing chores. One husband and three daughters later, not much has changed. She has an abiding love for peanut butter M&Ms, all things fall, and any book that can make her forget she’s supposed to be keeping her children alive.

Heidi recently received an offer to publish her first book, “Mended Affections,” and is enjoying the thrill of the author roller coaster ride. She lives just outside of Dallas, Texas.
