historical romances I ve read recently It was surprising and refreshing to say the least I think what I loved most was that it didn t include any over the top soap opera drama like crazy ex mistresses, jealous admirers, controlling relatives, or shady blackmail and murder plots thrown in just to keep it interesting It started as romance and stayed focused on the romance which I loved It didn I didn t expect to love this as much as I did because I ve been disappointed with the last couple of historical romances I ve read recently It was surprising and refreshing to say the least I think what I loved most was that it didn t include any over the top soap opera drama like crazy ex mistresses, jealous admirers, controlling relatives, or shady blackmail and murder plots thrown in just to keep it interesting It started as romance and stayed focused on the romance which I loved It didn t throw anything in that it didn t need It centered on the attraction and growing feelings between Stephanie and Andre, the bond with his kids that changed from unwanted stranger to loving mother, the friendship with Ebbie who saw her as a sister and best friend, the turmoil with fighting feelings for someone who wasn t supposed to be yours and the agony of getting close to this family and hurting them with your abandonment should you be taken back to your own time against your will All of that was in this book and there was a lot of it, if you like seeing the feelings of characters, the change that different types of love can bring to a person This is the book Both Stephanie and Andre were two characters that I loved and respected highly They didn t play games with each other, not in the sense that you think They do try to manipulate the other in certain situations like Steph trying to get him to spend time with Ebbie and see her in a different light,or Andre negotiating Steph to spend time with him if he were to do the same with Ebbie, but they didn t mess with each other s feelings or set out to hurt them It was a game where they both got caught up if anything Steph was one of my favorite heroines reading because she didn t come across as a blushing and bumbling idiot every time he looked at her or addressed her She stood up to him and put him in his place when he overstepped or undermined her authority She held her own and wasn t afraid to walk even though she had no where to go which I high fived her for and though she had no clue how to survive in a different era She spoke her mind to Andre and let him know that she wasn t going to fall head over heels for him as he expected her to like any other woman She took charge of a household that desperately needed order and children who needed rules and discipline She was firm and assertive which they needed to see The other kids adapted right away to her but seeing the change in Gwen was beautiful to see her eventually accept Steph as a potential mother role when she was so determined to hate her at first Andre was someone I initially didn t think I was going to like because of his arrogance, overconfident ego, and how he allowed his children to do as they pleased and pretty much run the home Which is why I enjoyed the first days that Steph moved in because she knocked him down off his high horse and showed him that just because he was an attractive man with money that she wasn t going to bend to his will He eventually accepted she was different, she was her own person, and wasn t going to fall for just his looks and money like many others had He knew he had feelings for her and didn t hide them from her What I loved most was that in the beginning it really was just attraction at first As the book went on, it eventually grew from wanting her as a conquest that intrigued him, to an attractive, challenging, woman he wanted as a mistress, to the one he both loved and desired and loved his children as if they were her own When he realized he loved her, he accepted it and embraced it It didn t scare him and he tried to convince her that what they felt was right and good for both of them The one character I didn t like was Sam, her real sister She was whiney and blamed Steph for her problems She even asked her to not speak about certain things so as to keep the peace with her potential mother in law She took her sister s sincere inquires and twisted them into asking her if she s jealous I m assuming she was in her twenties but she actedlike a teenager with her behavior and words Ebbie was so muchlikable and muchcompatible as a sister figure Sam seemed like a modern day spoiled, bratty, teenager marrying up in the social ladder for money and stability I didn t like her and found that Steph overlooked her faults and didn t see her sister for who she really was deep down I m glad that she was only in the beginning because she was not someone I d enjoy reading about Her character was shady and off and if she has to blame her sister for her boyfriend breaking up with her because he s a mama s boy, she doesn t deserve to have Steph in her life This book took everything that I want in books and put it all in one No mind games between characters, no dramatic misunderstandings, no over the top drama, and the bonus, no jealous heroine who feeds the hero s ego when she denies wanting him, sees him with another girl, confronts him with snarky remarks about said girl, while completely embarrassing herself Stephanie was one classy, respectable woman and Andre was an enjoyable, humorous man I m glad I bought this book and will soon check outof this author s other works to see how the others compare Making happiness happenWhat a lovely story I love the rascal Andre and his bevy of children Talk about tugging at one s heartstrings Stephanie is amazing This is courtship book to end all courtship the perfect book to tread and dream.
