He was actually purchased candae take over the plantation and to wed Meredith. But this book sounded too interesting to turn down. 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.
There was a lot to like about Bitterleafbut view spoiler [ the stupidity of the heroine and the hero, caused me to lower my rating. Some of those were block paragraphs of soporific doom. It sucks all the air out of a book when so much of it is focused on a character’s plain looks candacr lack of social skills. Jeremy is a cad, plain and simple. This book really can never go out of bitterleat with its timeless take on a great love affair, it can stand the test of time and last throughout the ages.

However, they make the best of their situation. I wore it out.
Jul 03, sandy forguson rated it it was amazing. An author with a true penchant for believable, steamy love scenes.
Admittedly it was about the taboo subject of slavery and abuse, but Meredith step-dad had a ace up his sleeve with Jeremy and it wasn’t made clear what his true aim was with Jeremy until bittsrleaf the incident and then you just thought he was one smart man.
Meredith and Jeremy where characters I liked and admired, and wished well for. View all 19 comments. I found this to be an emotional story.
No believing each other even if they did talk. The landowner has a daughter whom is described as “plain, unattractive, and mousy”. Her stepfather has a plan and Jeremy is a part of it. I was pleasantly surprised at the passion in this book. From beginning to end. It was so contrived and idiotic. One afternoon she decides to go with her step-dad down to the sale of bond-slaves.
Fran Barnes rated it it was amazing Jun 16, I have to say some of their misunderstandings that persisted did bother me.
Isn’t beauty in the eye of the beholder. 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 block, all the candxce having ulterior motives no intention of leaving the man a servant Jeremy is the bastard son of an English nobleman and Irish prostitute. The second half after Jeremy cancace Meredith are married gets much better so hang in there!
Apr 27, Lauren rated it it was amazing Shelves: Refresh and try again. Meredith is a spinster and the mistress of Bitterleaf.
They never failed to see what wasn’t there, but were totally blind to what was in front of them. He was a nobleman’s son betrayed into bondage, unhumbled by the lash, who treated Meredith and every woman as his possession. He was educated and refined but wasted his time gambling and whoring and eventually his uncle father is deceased takes the easy route and ships him to the colonies when Jeremy “shames” him with his raunchy behavior in London.
But wait, stepfather saw something in servant’s hauty gaze on the block and he actually purchased Jeremy Devlin eeeee!
Lisa Gregory Candace Camp was writing some of the best emotional and touching romances of the time. But he has plans of revenge on his mind. It goes like this Nov 04, Kim rated it it was amazing. Other than that, it goes in a different direction than Dark Torment. Crystal Radefeld rated it it was amazing Jun 23, Way better than watching porn together which I always thought was super weird.
He is sold to a rich landowner to work and is quickly “moved up the ranks”.
