In Follow Her Heart you will find yourself touched by the extreme abuse young Jessie is subjected to at the hands of her brother, Martin. The author, M.L. Taylor, gives just enough detail to her condition which allows you to understand the measures she would take to rid herself of his cruelty. As her scheme to cheat rich noblemen begins to play out, an unexpected man threatens more than just her game. Lucian is a peril to her future and she finds herself at his mercy at every corner she turns until he is the only thing left for her survival. Yet, they each must deal with their own demons before peace can be found.
M.L. Taylor is exceptional in taking a topic, such as a nobleman falling for a poor girl, and twisting it to create a work all of its own. You will find Follow Her Heart is more than just a romance novel to enjoy as you become entwined in the lives of these two characters. The author's ability to weave suspense within the story line generates a web of possibilities as Jessie and Lucian's future unfolds. In my reading, if an author has the ability to make a reader want to cry, laugh, or get their heart racing, they are a good author; this book was more than good, it is outstanding. M.L. Taylor ends Follow Her Heart with the feeling there must be another book to tell the other half of Jessie's nightmares that haunted her.
