Bought on the auction block by Meredith’s stepfather, he soon finds life much harsher on the flip side. I was wiping the sweat from my brow several times during this one, of course the outside temp being 20 below did nothing to cool the singe off of this one. This was during the time of slavery in America and I have never read a romance that set in this time period.
It sucks all the air out of a book when so much of it is focused on a character’s plain looks or lack of social skills. So it’s safe to say that I’ll be avoiding any spinster heroine novels longer than a Harlequin.
No talking grfgory each other. Some richly drawn characters add a wonderful depth to the story, though you may find the pace is a bit leisurely.

Meredith family owned slaves, and she wasn’t particularly happy about it. Meredith and Jeremy were characters I liked and admired, and wished well for. However, that got to be way too infodumpy and I ended up skimming anything that looked like minutae of house husbandry and adjectives galore about clothing.
Buy with confidence, excellent customer service! The first half of this book is just alright. She hates that part of plantation life, but she hates sitting at her relatives and having to deal with their incessant ridicule more. Ships from Reno, NV. From beginning to end.

He was actually purchased to take over the plantation and to wed Meredith. Meredith was one of the biggest, whiny self-deprecators this social hermit has ever had the displeasure to read.
