Heart of Stone




I'm delighted to announce publication on 1st November of my latest historical romance, Heart of Stone. This is my 26th novel, a powerful passionate story, and one I loved writing.

In 1840’s Cornwall 25-year-old Sarah Govier supports herself and her illegitimate son, Jory, on the income from Talvan, the granite quarry she inherited from her father. But businessman Kinser Landry has good reason for wanting Talvan and will stop at nothing to get it. With her problems mounting, Sarah turns in desperation to James Crago, a gunpowder manufacturer who owns land adjoining hers.
After twenty years as soldier and diplomat in India, Crago, 37, returned home, his face horrifically scarred, a wound sustained during his attempt to help the girl he loved escape a despotic raja. Local reaction to his appearance has turned him into a recluse.
Rejected by society, emotionally bruised and deeply wary, neither Sarah nor James is prepared for the powerful attraction that erupts between them. Will they survive the plots against them? Can they overcome the past? Find the courage to love again?


Heart of Stone by Jane Jackson is published by Severn House, price £18.99. Available direct from Severn House or Amazon.co.uk
