Don't deny your heart's desire

I have read this story twice and I must say, it's still a good story. We learn the barriers one must go through for love. Often our insecurities and fears hold us back. It was good for Rachel to be able to let her guard down and follow her heart. The passion shared was undeniable. You come to recognize the turning point from sex to love. Ethan is a true Alpha man and it was just the strength Rachel needed to understand the importance of not allowing fear to govern o
Brenda Jackson captures the true essence of romance in every one of her books. Star of His Heart is the first book in the Love in the Limelight series and will leave readers satisfy and happy.

Rachel Wellesley is the make-up artist and wardrobe designer on the set of Paging the Doctor, a new hip television show that features doctors. Growing up in a famous family full of entertainment moguls, Rachel has had her share of the spotlight and she wants no part of it. She’s determined to stay out of th

I’m gonna do this one in a way that I haven’t before... I’m posting my notes that I took down as I was reading the book.

3 chapters in and it’s still almost nothing but backstory. And far too much telling, rather than showing. *yawn*

Very slow start. If it doesn’t pick up soon, I’ll have to DNF it, and I really don’t want to do that.

Chapter 4 – I know Paige is supposed to be the thorn in Rachel & Ethan’s sides, but I just can’t be bothered to care. She doesn’t seem manipulative or mean or any

Star of His Heart

Even though this story lacked the intrigue we are accustomed to from Ms Jackson the secrecy of their love made the story and having a powerful sister in Sofia helped, for she had Paige fired for blackmailing Ethan and giving their story to the tabloids. Good Read I'm looking forward to reading the other books in the series.
First installment in the "Love in the Limelight Series". Not one of my favorite Jackson novels, but entertaining nonetheless. I guess I missed the adventure/action side story that she is known to weave into her novels. This was a straight boy meets girl and falls in love --- which is not bad, but just not her usual style. Ethan Chambers, actor, (although the blasted cover calls him Logan!) meets Rachel Wellesley, make up artist, on the set of a TV show. Immediately attacted to her and she to him ...more
Rachel Wellesley tries to stay out of the limelight due to what happened to her as a child. What is she going to do when she develops feelings for Ethan Chambers who is alway in the limelight. Hopefully she follows her heart and overcomes her fears.
Connie Whitfield
Loved it! This story had it all:a protective, sexy and handsome leading man; a beautiful, caring and publicity-shy makeup artist; a greedy, insensitive agent and various, treacherous co-workers. Ethan and Rachel are perfect together but her fear of the paparazzi threatens to tear their relationship apart, not to mention the back-stabbing "hoochie-mamas"!
Once again Ms. Jackson has written a wonderful story that will fill your heart with joy. This is a well-paced story which follows Rachel Wellesley and Ethan Chambers as they fall in love with each other. The dialogue and actions are so realistic, that you do not doubt that this is for real.
Kyra Gates
Absolutely wonderful. I've read these out of order but they are still easy to follow. I loved the story and how it tied into the others. This is my first book by this author and I look forward to reading another one.
This book was good and it kinda ended like i expected it to. I'm glad Rachel came around and finally agreed to marry Ethan. That is the type of love that I want to find. But you only find in the pages of a book. :) ...more
This series is off to a good start. I look forward to reading the rest of the books in this series.

Forgiveness and getting past her fear is the key to Rachel's happiness.
You can't go wrong with Brenda Jackson. Such good love stories to get lost in.
