Starving Hearts is about a young woman, Annette Chetwynd. At a wedding party she is assaulted, but is rescued be an unknown man who disappears after. Annette loves to draw and after the event draws the stranger who rescues her. However, Annette continues to have nightmares about that dreadful night. Due to health issues, Annette’s father has always pampered her, allowing her the education and thoughts of a son while her mother has kept her close to home and out of society in order to hide her ailment. One day, Annette’s path crosses again with the young man who previously rescued her, Peter Adsley, and an attachment forms. But all is not as it seems. Annette’s mother has secretly arranged a marriage for her to the man who assaulted her, even when she would rather be with a man she loves. Peter is sent off unexpectedly on a ship with his father only to learn where the family fortune comes from. He is bitterly disappointed in his father. They both deal with situations that are not of their making. Can they pull through and end up together or will doubts and people get in the way?

Janine Mendenhall’s debut novel, Starving Hearts, is full of adventure, suspense, and of course, romance. A new historical novel, Janine’s story of pain, heartache, loss, and love will speak to its readers. It is interesting to see the different events that cause the paths of Annette Chetwynd and Peter Adsley to cross and to see their relationship develop throughout the novel. This story is told from the view point of both Annette and Peter bringing to light different events. I enjoyed both the exciting story and the delightful characters that Janine developed. I would recommend this story to readers that enjoy historical-romance.

Rated PG: For some suspenseful and intense situations.
