He even goes so far as to scheme to marry Meredith and then sell off her plantation and move back to London, leaving her penniless and on the mercy of relatives.
No believing each other even if they did talk. Surely he could not love such an ungainly woman as she. So it’s safe to say that I’ll be avoiding any spinster heroine novels longer than a Harlequin.
There was nothing in this story that didn’t count on a misunderstanding to make it blossom, from Jeremy’s lineage all the way to Meredith’s cousin’s aka Galen assumption about how she felt about Jeremy. Then she met the regal blue gaze of a golden-haired slave upon the auction bitterlesf, and with one burning look he branded her as the victim of his desire and revenge.
Heroine’s stepfather purchases indentured servant for his plantation. What I loved about this book gitterleaf the passion and the love between Meredith and Jeremy.
This was during the time of slavery in America and I bitterlefa never read a romance that set in this time period. Again and again, she would be shamed by her own secret desires. Candace lives in Austin, Texas, with her husband and is the mot Candace Camp is the New York Times bestselling author of over sixty books. An amazing ability to avoid the simmering topics even in the heat of anger, even though impulsive speech often was used to worsen the misunderstanding.
Meredith thinks herself unattractive, but it is clear that Jeremy feels a passion for her, although he doesn’t want to be married to her or love her. Meredith was one of the biggest, whiny self-deprecators this social hermit has ever had the displeasure to read.

This is my favorite antebellum-set historical romance hands down. I highly recommend reading it out loud to friends when you’re all drunk.
Meredith WhitneyJeremy Devlin. Oh, and while I love the cover, I should note that Jeremy has golden hair, not dark brown. But wait, stepfather saw something in servant’s hauty gaze on the block and he actually purchased Jeremy Devlin eeeee!
An author with a true penchant for believable, steamy love scenes. In some ways, it reminded me a little of Dark Torment by Karen Robards, which has long been a favorite of mine, in that the heroine is a plain Jane spinster, and the hero is more or less an indentured s This is my favorite antebellum-set historical romance hands down.
Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. The cover is a picture of a painting love it! Since GoodReads just happened to not have the cover “on hand” funnyI’ll describe it for you. Daniel has a step-daughter, Merideth, who is also present.
bittereaf The landowner has a daughter whom is described as “plain, unattractive, and mousy”. This is a good read. The setting of this story is during the colonial days on a plantation Bitterleaf in the south. I found this to be an emotional story. This is the story of an illegitimate English lord who becomes an indentured servant in America.
Even after this book ended, I could imagine them having a good life together, raising their family, and running their plantation with acmp, and not on the backs of enslaved labor. Glad the author moved on to write much better stories.
I have to say some of their misunderstandings that persisted did bother me. Other than that, it goes in a different direction than Dark Torment.
So the whole thing ends up reading like some magic unicorn pooped fairy dust in the midst of a story that otherwise had been pretty low-key and realistic when it came to the workaday life of a colonial plantation.
