The quick of it is that Jane's childhood was scary and unstable and now she's determined to make a wedding match that'll leave her life safe and secure. And everything is right on schedule except for one very persistent gypsy who is full of trouble and determined to get to know her better. All while he's secretly battling being accused of murder and having a relative try to steal his inheritance. To say life is busy would be an understatement. lol
I absolutely adored Jane. She's incredibly caring and loves animals. Is always bringing home strays and protecting those weaker than her. She was just a beautiful person and one so determined to have safety and security she was willing to give up love. I really felt for her and her struggles with overcoming her past and the insecurities it caused.
And Zack. He's just charming and such a good man even if his life is in a bit of chaos. He's pretty easy going, kind and isn't one to be denied. I'd totally have a crush on him.
I loved watching the two get to know each other. It's a slow burn romance that so worked for them. While there's very little on the intimate side of things it was completely satisfying and I really didn't realize there'd been no sex scenes until nearly the end. I was just too caught up in their relationship and everything they were going through figuring out life and his innocence to even notice.
It's so easy to slip into one of Gracie's stories. They're full of cheeky lovable characters, fun storylines, love and family--no matter how they come about. Heartwarming and endearing and the perfect way to spend an evening.
Have you read Gracie? What did you think?
Any good slow burn romances you'd rec?
Who was the last heroine that you were totally smitten with?
On the eve of the London Season, Jane Chance is about to make her entrance into high society. And after a childhood riddled with poverty and hardship, Jane intends to make a good, safe, sensible marriage. All goes according to plan until a dark, dangerous vagabond helps her rescue a dog.
Zachary Black is all kinds of unsuitable—a former spy, now in disguise, he’s wanted for murder. His instructions: to lie low until his name is cleared. But Zach has never followed the rules, and he wants Jane Chance for his own.
If that means blazing his way into London society, in whatever guise suits him, that’s what he’ll do. Jane knows she shouldn’t fall in love with this unreliable, if devastatingly attractive, rogue. But Zach is determined—and he‘s a man accustomed to getting what he wants.
