Early Book Review: Tremaines True Love by Grace Burrowes

Tremaines True Love is the first book in the True Gentlemen series by Grace Burrowes. This historical romance is currently scheduled for release on August 4th 2015. 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.

Tremaines True Love is another winner from Burrowes. Nita is a smart, strong woman that still has a vulnerable heart. She has been healing the people in her village for years, at great risk to herself, because of the incompetence of the actual doctor. She has also been dealing with the scorn of that doctor, the village vicar, and society as well as her families worry and disapproval. Tremaine is a strong and thoughtful man with no plans to marry and some childhood issues to deal with. He sees a kindred soul in Nita, but is reluctant to pursue it, but love in these cases often has a mind of its own, particularly when other people and their problems are close at hand. I really loved that all of the secondary characters had stories of their own, rather than just being lost in the background or stereotypes. It left me satisfied on several levels and looking forward to see the larger story continue and other characters find their own happy endings.

Tremaines True Love is exactly what I expect from Burrowes, and is a must read for her many fans. Her characters, dialogue, and grander story arch capture the imagination and captivate. I am still thinking about the characters, even though i finished it and have read other books since reading the final pages.
