New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Grace Burrowes introduces a brand new gorgeous Regency Romance series featuring the Haddonfield ladies and their loves.

He’s had everything he could ever want…until now
Wealthy wool magnate Tremaine St. Michael is half French, half Scottish, and all business. He prowls the world in search of more profits, rarely settling in one place for long. When he meets practical, reserved Lady Nita Haddonfield, he sees an opportunity to mix business with pleasure by making the lady his own.

Nita Haddonfield has a meaningful life tending to others, though nobody is dedicated to caring for Nita. She insists the limitations of marriage aren’t for her, then Tremaine St. Michael arrives-protective, passionate, and very, very determined to win Nita’s heart.

Review:

Similar to the The Duke’s Disaster, the intro book to Grace Burrowes’ True Gentlemen series, Tremaine’s True Love is definitely more of realistic, slice-of-life kinda romance. It’s kind of a long read (sitting at almost 400 pages), but that’s probably because while our H/h is Tremaine and Nita, there’s a lot of other characters stories mixed in.

Tremaine and Nita are a really cute couple. There’s lots of simple yet adorable moments that just show us how awesome they are as a couple. I quite adore Tremaine. Burrowes describes a hero as “they have to be worthy of our loyalty for the duration of an entire book” and that perfectly describes Tremaine. He’s sweet and thoughtful, and non-judgmental and he actually tries to support Nita’s dream as much as  he can.  Nita is strong willed and independent . She’d rather try to provide medical care to the poor than care about her marriage status. Her family doesn’t really understand her desire to help others, so it’s pretty adorable when she meets Tremaine, and they just really click.

With you, I need not pretend to be someone I’m not.

Also, I never could resist a hilariously tipsy hero.

Tremaine’s heartache was already profuse. “You may remove my leg if you like,” he said as he was half carried into the kitchen. “You are already in possession of my heart.”

“A tipsy shepherd poet.” George murmered.

The main story really focuses on Tremaine and Nita, and their goals and dreams  – Tremaine and his sheep, Nita and caring for the poor-  and how it affects their relationship. The rest of the story we’re graced with the rest of the Haddonfield family. There’s a strong focus on Kirsten and Susannah (both whom will be featured as the heroine in later books) and also George (who got his own little story in the book).

Overall it was a sweet read. Grace Burrowes tend to have a lot of overlapping characters, so you may recognizes many of them from other books. You don’t need to have read the others to enjoy this, but it’s kind of nice to see previous characters get their HEAs.

  1. Ooh, this sounds fun! I’m also inclined to believe your recommendations. 🙂 And I love previous characters showing up in other books–might have to read allll of her books… 😀

    1. It’s a little different than typical romances, but they’re sweet (:
      She has so many books, I didn’t really know where to start! But I’m slowly figuring out the characters, haha.
