Liss Rare Books Book Value. Two pseudonyms Kristin James and Sharon Stephens and many books later, Candace writes under her own name Candace Camp and still loves creating stories. So the whole thing ends up reading like some magic unicorn pooped fairy dust in the midst of a story that otherwise had been pretty low-key and realistic when it came to the workaday life of a colonial plantation.
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. Bitterleaf by Candace Camp Goodreads Author. Want to Read saving….

Just a moment while we sign you in to your Goodreads account. This one is about an English gentleman, Jeremy Devlin, whose uncle knocked him out and sold him as an indentured servant on a slave ship bound for the colonies. Jeremy is a cad, plain and simple.
In some ways, it reminded me a little of Dark Torment by Karen Robards, which has long been a favorite of mine, in that the heroine is a plain Jane spinster, and the hero is more or less an indentured servant that her stepfather buys off the auction block. Her lover is Losa the good bits obscured by the heroine’s bodacious bootyfeasting on her neck, practically holding her aloft as she is in full-on swoon.
Buy with confidence, excellent customer service! Caitlin rated it it was amazing Apr 14, Bought on the auction block by Meredith’s stepfather, he soon finds life much harsher on the flip side. Another aspect of the story that, while not annoying, was hard to swallow was Jeremy’s decision to manumit all slaves on Meredith’s plantation, pay wages, and still turn a tidy profit in South Carolina.
This is the story of an illegitimate English lord who becomes an indentured servant in America. Even when Jeremy expresses his desire for her, bitterlesf refuses to believe he has any other motive other than personal gain. Johanna Marie rated it really liked it Jul 11, This was during the time of slavery in America and I have never read a romance that set in this time period.
bitherleaf Feb 07, Pamela AllHoney rated it really liked it Shelves: I highly recommend reading it out loud to friends when you’re all drunk. Even after this book ended, I could imagine them having a good life together, raising their family, and running their plantation with honor, and not on the backs of enslaved labor. No talking to each other. I love a good marriage of gtegory story, and this is one of my favorites.
