Book: The Rarest Rose
Author: H.A. Robinson
Genre: Contemporary Romance
“Elijah is a self-confessed workaholic, taking a forced break from his non-stop obsession with righting an old wrong.
Sarah is a reclusive artist, holed up alone out of fear for far too long, hiding from a history she can never divulge.
When their paths cross on a misty day in Cornwall, two worlds are turned upside down, and neither will ever be the same again.
But when Sarah’s past comes back to haunt her, it threatens to destroy everything she’s built, and there’s no guarantee that either of them will make it out unscathed.”
This book left me speechless when I finished. H.A. Robinson is a masterful storyteller that pulls you in from the first page. This is one of those stories that will wring your heart out to dry. The characters are perfect. Elijah with his sweet, patient, gentle ways, and Sarah with her rare glimpses of wit and humor. She is such a mystery not only to Elijah, but to the reader as well. The feeling I had while reading her chapters was one of desperation, fear, and urgency. Elijah, on the other hand felt….safe. Warm, like home. The banter between him and his sister will have you laughing. She’s like that little devil perched on your shoulder daring you to take the leap.
Some of the plot was a bit transparent, but it was the way that the story was told that makes it stand out. It puts you right in the middle of what the characters are going through, every thought, every action, and especially every feeling.
It’s a sweet slow burn romance with dark undertones and a climax that will have you on the edge of your seat. I have been a fan of Ms Robinson’s since she gave us Max Colton, and this book shows that the only place she can go is up

H. A. Robinson is a jet-setting billionaire with a home on each continent, who spends her free time saving kittens from trees and babies from burning buildings. A graduate of Hogwarts and a frequent visitor to Narnia, she drinks coffee in Central Perk and tames dragons in Westeros.
In her dreams…
In reality, she’s a support worker living in a small town in Cheshire, who would almost always choose fantasy over reality. She’s been an obsessive reader from the moment she picked up her first Enid Blyton book, more years ago than she cares to admit, and enjoys nothing more than getting lost in new worlds and adventures from the minds of all the amazing authors out there.
She’s had the voices of characters in her head for as long as she can remember, and puts them down on paper in order to convince herself and the men in white coats that she isn’t crazy.
