BOOK REVIEW- TREMAINE'S TRUE LOVE by Grace Burrowes
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. AMAZON 3.5 STARS
The main characters were good and so were the secondary ones too. Some of those other ones would be the brothers and sisters of Nita. Her real first name was Bernita but I have to say I liked her nickname better. She understands that she has a gift of healing that she learned much of at her mother's knee. She's sacrificed a lot to practice it. Her family worries about her and she's wearing herself to the bone. She had given us the hope of marriage, thinking her life would all be about healing other people and their babies instead of having her own. After meeting Tremaine, things began to be more challenging to that thought. She finds she likes him, and sees many good qualities about him. As he begins to really see her and admire her qualities as well. Then of course the physical attraction begins to build between them too. But that by no means is a guarantee that Nita will marry him.
This is the main story but there is also a couple of layers of a few other stories going on too. They don't dominate the book but they do add to it.
I did like that we got to read from both of the main characters P.O.V.
As much as I liked Tremain and Nita both separately and as a couple; I only gave it a 3.5 Stars rating on Amazon. It was a charming story, with a few gritty things that had to be addressed , but even with that, there really wasn't quite the depth that I had hoped for.
