Bitterleaf by Candace Camp
Elaine rated it liked it Sep 10, Unfortunately I read it from the library. Luz Trevino rated it liked it Mar 19, He even goes so far as to scheme to marry Meredith and then sell off her plantation and move bitterldaf to London, leaving her penniless and on the mercy of relatives. Meredith spends much of the book self loathing her height and plain appearance.
Meredith is a plain, tall bookish young woman in sultry Charleston.

This is a book about strangers becoming spouses, lovers, and friends.
Very well written story with good plot detail and very developed characters. There are no discussion topics on this book yet.
But this book sounded too interesting to turn down. Way better than watching porn together which I always thought was super weird.
If you’re a fan of incredible circumstances, old school romance and purple prose, this is definitely the book for you. I highly recommend reading it out hitterleaf to friends when you’re all drunk. An author with a true penchant for believable, steamy love scenes.
I thought the last half of Whitney, My Love was intolerable since all the action rested on a Big Mis, but this was even worse. 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 after the incident and then you just thought he was one smart man.
A little worse for wear Some richly drawn characters add a wonderful depth to the story, though you may find the pace is a bit leisurely. Goodreads helps you keep track of books you want to read. I could probably leave it there, but a synopsis is too good to be true fore this one.
Then she met the regal blue gaze of a golden-haired slave upon the auction block, and with one burning look he branded her as the victim of his desire and revenge. I was pleasantly surprised.
This one is about an English gentleman, Jeremy Devlin, whose uncle knocked him bittetleaf and sold him as an indentured servant on a slave ship bound for the colonies.
I liked the way this book dealt with the slavery issue. So the whole thing ends up reading like some magic unicorn pooped fairy dust in the midst of a story that otherwise had been bitterlef low-key and realistic when it came to the workaday life of a colonial plantation. No believing each other even if they did talk. However, they make the best of their situation.
