The second half after Jeremy and Meredith are married gets much better so hang in there! An author with a true penchant for believable, steamy love scenes.
Meredith spends much of the book self loathing her height and plain appearance. Apr 27, Lauren rated it it was gergory Shelves: Jan Blooth rated it really liked it Apr 15, But wait, stepfather saw something in servant’s hauty gaze on the block and he actually purchased Jeremy Devlin eeeee!
Meredith WhitneyJeremy Devlin. However, they make the best of their situation. I love a good marriage of convenience story, and this is one of my favorites. Easily more than half, but I’m inclined to say three-quarters at least.
Far, far too much of the story was the Big Mis and filler. Jun 10, Karla rated it it was ok Recommends it for: Two pseudonyms Kristin James and Sharon Stephens and many books later, Candace writes under her own bitterlefa Candace Camp and still loves creating stories.
Bitterleaf by Candace Camp Goodreads Author. Candace Camp is the New York Times bestselling author of over sixty books. But this book sounded too interesting to turn down.
I liked Jeremy and there are some awesome scenes in this book. Meredith family owned slaves, and she wasn’t particularly happy about it.
Another of my favorite writers. Tall, sapphire-e This was a book I read over and over and over.
He is sold to a rich landowner to work and is quickly “moved up the ranks”. Bitherleaf this detailed story, she brings to life the world of the Southern plantation in 18th century America, before the Revolutionary War. Her lover is STARKERS the good bits obscured by the heroine’s bodacious bootyfeasting on her neck, practically holding her aloft as she is in full-on swoon.
No believing each other even if they did talk. Shows some signs of wear, and may have some markings on the inside. Caitlin rated it it was amazing Apr 14, It sucks all the air out of a book vitterleaf so much of it is focused on a character’s plain looks or lack of social skills. Call me a bigoted tropist, but dayum I’ve never encountered a device that is so unfailingly obnoxious. I still gave this 2 stars because I liked some of the historical details about the plantation daily life.

May 20, Crista rated it really liked it Shelves: But he has plans of revenge on his mind. I don’t think I will ever, ever pick up another romance where the heroine is a spinster. A good bit of time actually, although the storyline never really gives you an exact date Her stepfather “buys” an indentured servant on the auction bl semi spoiler alert This is a very old school, bodice ripper from the early 80’s.
Jeremy, betrayed into indentured servitude in the colonies, was a man admired by the women o A Sultry Tale from the Old South Set in Charleston, in the Carolina colony inthis is the story of Jeremy Devlin, the bastard son of an Irish mother and an English nobleman, and Meredith Whitney, the too tall plain daughter of a plantation owner. That is, until I read a couple romances where it didn’t annoy me at all. 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 servant that stepfather buys off the auction block.
So it’s safe to say that I’ll be avoiding any spinster heroine novels longer than a Harlequin. May 27, Keri rated it it was amazing Shelves: 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.
Otherwise I’d skip it. I was pleasantly surprised at the passion in this book.
