ARC Provided by Booksprout 🌱 This ebook was $3.99 on Amazon at the time of this review. Opinions expressed here are entirely my own. This book is written in first person with dual points of view, a format I am not especially fond of. There are many instances of modern phrases, idioms, and words used that are not at all true to the period. The story is likeable, but not true to The period in that Edison🐺 was introduced to Violet's suitor, Edward👹, an heir to an Earl. This would never have happened because Edison🐺 was a servant, not an equal. Violet is also not chaperoned when she is with Edward. The book is a fast read, but needs editing for misspellings.

    Poor Violet. She has been sent from America by her prestige-hungry parents to marry a titled gentleman. After three seasons, she still has no offers even though she has a substantial dowery. Out of sheer desperation, she is matched with a gentleman who needs her dowery to save his estate. However, her instincts tell her that all is not as it seems with him.

She has been sent from America by her prestige-hungry parents to marry a titled gentleman. After three seasons, she still has no offers even though she has a substantial dowery. Out of sheer desperation, she is matched with a gentleman who needs her dowery to save his estate. However, her instincts tell her that all is not as it seems with him. Edison, left home at sixteen to escape an abusive father. Now that his father is dead, and after he has made a life for himself as a gardener, he is called home to take care of his mother and siblings. He meets Violet when she interviews him for the position of gardener at her aunt’s estate. Sparks fly....things get complicated. The characters are wonderful. Violet is unassuming, kind and trapped by her parents’ dictates. Edison, too is trapped by what is required of him, yet he remains compassionate, trustworthy and courageous...a real stand-up guy. Edward, Violet’s intended, is an entitled, arrogant heir to an impoverish earldom who will say and do whatever is needed to save his family’s estate. Aunt Charlotte is the voice of reason and a stalwart ally. I like that this book is written in the first person, told from Violet’s and Edison’s point of view. It makes the story feel and gives the reader the experience of actually being emotionally involved. Well done! I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.

    This is a sweet and emotional love story. I liked the characters a lot. There's not much sexual tension here—in fact, for most of the story, Violet is being courted by a another man. She and Edison are friends, though they realize such a relationship is inappropriate due to the differences in their station. But they're also aware of the attraction between them and wish things could be different. If you like sweet Regency romance that centers on class difference, this book might be for you.

    Sometimes you do what the heart wants. It appears that even being an American Violet must live by her parents’ wishes and marry a title Englishman. Things are heading that way that is until she meets Edison. He is not who Violet expected to fall for but the attraction is there. I liked the story and the characters they know their relationship is inappropriate due to society rules but deal with it in a splendid way. The ending was good very realistic and the title was so fitting. I hope you check Sometimes you do what the heart wants.
