  • With the Civil War in full swing in 1643 England, Kinton Lacey castle was under the control of Deliverance Felton and her sister Penitence. Their father, Sir John Felton had been called away to offer support in Gloucester so combating the siege was up to Deliverance and her men. The unexpected arrival of a garrison of soldiers led by Captain Luke Collyer and sent as back up by her father had Deliverance unsettled and angry. She was in charge and she was determined to remain that way. But Captain [...]


  • I think I have read nearly all the books this author has written now and probably liked this one best of all, although I thoroughly enjoyed every one of them! She writes with such a lovely balance between well researched historical fact and entertaining fictional romance that her books are a pleasure to read.Her Rebel Heart is set in England during the Civil War and the main characters meet while defending a castle against attack by the Royalists. I found all of the characters to be well written [...]


  • The year is 1643, and England is at the height of civil war. Families and towns have been torn apart by people taking different sides in the battle. Follow the King or the Parliament, your choice will dictate your path. Deliverance and Penitence Felton (yeah I really didn't like their names!)But soon enough I figured they were appropriate for the time period and let it go, especially when they started using shorter nicknames (Pen and Liv) at times. The story was a typical Alison Stuart historica [...]


  • Claiming The Rebel's Heart is a 22 January 2014 release. It's an exciting historical novel which whisked me away to England 1643 where English Civil War was raging and friends, families and neighbours were fighting each other all the while trying to save their own castles. Past friendships and loyalties have all been tossed out the window. It's a wonderful historical romance and differs from Alison's other books because there's no ghosts or time travel.I give this book a solid 5 stars because I [...]


  • Claiming the Rebel’s Heart is a fast paced, gripping romance set during the English Civil War. On the side of the Parliamentarians is the family of Sir John Felton, including his spirited daughter Deliverance. Having successfully defended Kinton Lacey from one raid made by the King’s forces, she is frustrated to discover her absent father has sent a man to take over the defence of her family’s castle.Captain Luke Collyer is a tried and tested soldier with little time to deal with a mere fe [...]


  • There were times when I was reading this book that I felt like I was watching a movie. The action packed start kept up its momentum all the way through to the end. With a well armed enemy at the castle gate firing giant cannon balls over the wall, a traitor within the castle walls itself and no sign of help in sight I found myself reading this book in one long afternoon. Captain Luke Collyer was a well written hero who I fell in love with by page 5. Deliverance Felton, the heroine was simply bri [...]


  • Originally posted on My Written Romance on February 28, 2014: When I finished reading Her Rebel Heart, I had to give myself a great big rap across the knuckles. Why have I not picked up a book by Alison Stuart before? I do own a few of them.Gosh, this was such a fantastic read. As much as I do love Regency and Victorian England, I also love being able to take a voyage to a time in British history that I don't often come across in historical romance. Her Rebel Heart is full to the brim with a per [...]


  • Powerful and Enchanting English Civil War RomanceClaiming the Rebel’s Heart is a MUST READ for fans of this genre! Alison Stuart’s beguiling tale transported me back to the time of the English Civil War, when Parliamentary forces were pitied against the supporters of the King, a conflict that tore families and communities apart. This book is one of my top picks of the year so far and its hero and heroine,Protestant Deliverance Felton and soldier of Fortune Luke Collyer, one of my favourite c [...]


  • Having read other works by Alison Stuart, I prepared to settle into a romantic story with a hefty dose of well-researched reality of the 17th Century, and this novel does not disappoint. The novel is set in the Hertfordshire countryside during the first year of the Civil War, when the Royalists were at their height and expected to crush the ‘Rebels’ with ease.Deliverance Felton is a worthy heroine, strong minded and feisty, she is determined to defend her home near Ludlow and wield a musket [...]


  • I don't normally read historical romances, so I was surprised at how I ended up with this book.It was lite read, not too bogged down with the historical details that still gave you a sense of place. The story of a self-taught sword fighting musket shooting Lady trying to save her family's castle during the English civil war. Romance delivered well.But the ending annoyed me, which is so typical of that era, and why I don't read historicals. it deserved 4 stars, but I took one star, because of the [...]


  • “ Kinton Lacey Castle needs to be defended at all costs. It is important to the balance of the war against the Royalists”. At least that was what her father told Deliverance when he left. Although he may not have considered her to be the prettiest and most proper daughter, when her father left her in charge of protecting the family home from the Royalists, she took her responsibility seriously. If she couldn't gain her father's respect through being a proper female like her sister, maybe it [...]

  • I highly recommend Allison Stuart’s book, Her Rebel Heart. It is a historical romance set during the English civil war in the 1640s. As with most civil wars, families are torn apart as relatives forge allegiances based on loyalties toward the two warring sides. In this case, you have a family siding with Parliament and against the King of England.The female protagonist is the daughter of a Sir John Fenton, Deliverance, has been left in charge of the upkeep and running of Kenton Lacey, the Fent [...]


  • I think what I liked best about this book were the two main characters and their relationship, a plus definitely in a romance novel. Deliverance is phenomenal. I loved how she was just as handy with a gun or sword as she was in organizing siege supplies. She was a courageous woman who wasn’t afraid to put her life on the line for her dependents. I also liked that she was practical enough to understand where Luke’s superior military skills and strategic points might be more called for than he [...]


  • HER REBEL HEART is the story of two sisters who must defend the fort, which is their home, while their father is away on parliamentary and county duties. Deliverance Felton is a young woman with gumption and she is a very determined lady. She and her sister, Penitence, do a great job protecting the castle and the people in it from their raiding enemies. Their father, however, doesn't think they're capable so he sends a rebel Round Head (supporters of the Parliament of England during the English [...]


  • Claiming the Rebel's Heart is just so much more than just a romance. It grabs you and thrusts you into the castle siege in war-torn England where Deliverance is actively defending her family's castle from the onslaught of the Royalist forces. Handling firearms and war strategy, Deliverance now has to deal with the man sent to defend her castle who has differing ideas about how to keep the castle walls from crumbling. Luke is irrepressible and a bit of a good natured rogue and Deliverance is not [...]


  • This is a very sensual story with a lot going on when Deliverence is left in charge of the castle while her father is away fighting, set during the civil war in England when parliment and Royalist are fighting. Luke is sent to hold the castle but Deliverence is a very stuborn woman and they clash but the sparks are there and things heat up between them as they are under siege from the royalist and stradegy comes into play with traitors in the castle. Deliverence has always come second to her bea [...]


  • One of the hallmarks of Alison Stuart's books is rigorous research and the English Civil War world she creates is so vivid I felt I was behind the walls of Kinton Lacey castle as spirited heroine Deliverance (great name!) Felton and soldier hero Luke Collyer defended the castle from Royalist forces. But this is no history lesson, rather a skilful blend of world building, expert story-telling and a terrific romance. Loads of action and danger, a slow burning romance with plenty of tension, a spir [...]


  • It's no secret that I've been a fan of Alison Stuart's English Revolution books and Claiming The Rebel's Heart is now another favourite.I won't go into the plot suffice to say that she brings the period to life, creating a taut drama where the hero and heroine's relationship develops authentically against the claustrophobic backdrop of a castle under siege.Another review has described reading the book as like seeing a movie and that is a very apt description. The sights, sounds and yes, even sme [...]


  • I was actually enjoying this book. It was well written and interesting. Set in the English Civil War (an era I've not read much about) it had characters that were true to life and enjoyable.As is usually the case, it contained a sex scene and that destroyed all the good feelings I had towards the book.


  • Not for the Clean ReaderI would love to be able to give this book four stars, the characters and the story, for the most part, were inviting and intriguing. However, I'm just not a fan of unnecessary explicit sex scenes. Furthermore, I just don't love the we-might-die-so-we-better-sleep-together storyline -- especially when the author takes the time to paint one of the characters as having a moral compass. Having the moral character throw her compass out the window isn't a triumph, it's an act t [...]


  • Romance and warThis story takes place during a civil war in England, where families are divided as to loyalties. A young soldier is sent to a castle where two young ladies reside. There is a siege without too much hope of holding out. Treason and dishonor and of course romance and daring all are part of this tale. This book is very well written and I thought it was very good.


  • Old Time RomanceI have been to England and it's so historically cool to see some of these castles still around. To think of what they have seen,how they were built, and the battles that were fought around them is amazing. The characters were well developed and interesting. I would read one of her books again.


  • WOW!!I won this novel in a contest! I entered because I love historical fiction / romance. I was not disappointed! The history is well -researched. The romance is clean and very humanly written. I will be reading this novel many more times during my lifetime!! I can't wait to read more of Alison's works!! Well done, Alison!Sandy McCarthyPhoenix, AZ USA


  • “Claiming the Rebel’s Heart” gives a unique perspective on a turbulent time in England’s history and it’s obvious Ms. Stuart has done her homework.Read full review in the 2014 April issue of InD’tale Magazine.


  • Engaging characters and an action-packed plot, grounded in thorough research about the daily realities of life during the English Civil War. Highly recommended.


  • Thoroughly enjoyed this book. Accurate history, engrossing story, well crafted and very believable characters. My idea of heaven.




  • This was my first book by this author and I loved every moment of it. The characters were great, the story line was smooth and we'll written.I highly recommend this book!
