Written in the days of bodice rippers. I hig Very well written story with good plot bityerleaf and very developed characters. Surely he could not love such an ungainly woman as she. Most of the story takes place at Bitterleaf and in Charleston.
It’s safe to say I don’t like this time period, and typically I try to avoid it. Pages contain marginal notes, underlining, and or highlighting. This was a book I read over and over and over. I highly recommend reading it out loud to friends when you’re all drunk. Even when Jeremy expresses his desire for her, she refuses to believe he has any other motive other than personal gain.

She has learned over the years to keep her feelings and passions locked in, so noone can hurt her or have the ability to make fun of her. I don’t think I will birterleaf, ever pick up another romance where the heroine is a spinster.
What a lovely, trope-filled read! It sucks all the air out of a book when so much of it grfgory focused on a character’s plain looks or lack of social skills. Way better than watching porn together which I always thought was super weird. I love a good marriage of convenience story, and this is one of my favorites.
This is a good read. I have to say some of their misunderstandings that persisted did bother me. Due to an unforeseen incident they are now thrown together to fight not only for their love, but the plantation that Meredith loves with an equal passion. Tall, sapphire-eyed Jeremy Devlin was no simple servant. This is the story of an illegitimate English lord who becomes an indentured servant in America.

They never failed to see what wasn’t there, but were totally blind to what was in front of them. Fran Barnes rated it it was amazing Jun 16, The angst took almost too long to resolve and the end grregory suitably melodramatic, but I guess the issue of slavery and indentured servitude was handled as well as it could be considering it’s a romance novel set in pre-independence America.
