Tremaine St. Michael is firmly in trade and seeks only to negotiate the sale of some fancy sheep with the Earl of Haddonfield. The earl’s sister, Lady Nita, is pragmatic, hard-working, and selfless, though Tremaine senses she’s also tired of her charitable obligations and envious of her siblings’ marital bliss. Tremaine, having been raised among shepherds, can spot another lonely soul, no matter how easily she fools her own family. Neither Tremaine nor Nita is looking for love, but love comes looking for them.
Tremaine's True Love by Grace Burrowes (True Gentlemen, #1)
They weren’t looking for love, but Cupid has other ideas in Grace Burrowes latest historical romance, Tremaine’s True Love. Gather around the sitting room, bring your lacey fans, because Ms. Burrowes has a steamy story of romance, love and the meeting of two lonely souls.
Everyone is learning the joys of marital bliss, except Nita, but she works hard with her charitable causes, her doctoring of the sick and needy and knows quite well that no man could tolerate her less than demure ways. Tremaine St. Michael is a businessman on a mission to buy prized sheep for the money they can bring in. When these two single-minded people meet, the connection is not exactly hearts and flowers at first glance, or even second, for that matter. But compromise, and being open to seeing things in a new light may be the push these two need to finally say what is in their hearts. They have no problem between the sheets, but actually committing to another, without it being a business arrangement as cover? So. Not. Romantic. Not a great cover either, as Tremaine and the hard-headed Nita play at a game that could cost them more than they will ever know.
Grace Burrowes deals in romance between two strong people, and this time out is no exception, but there is a bit of a twist, compromise. Both main characters are completely enjoyable, but Tremaine seemed almost more in touch with his feelings than Nita, who has learned the hard way, the value of women in her world. Another wonderful escape back in time where leather, lace and propriety are no match for love.
I received an ARC edition from Sourcebooks Casablanca in exchange for my honest review.
