A nasty fall and an antebellum dress changes Holly Marcum’s life forever. Once she is revived, nothing is familiar…. The dress shop, her meddling aunt, and life as she knows it have all vanished. Instead a handsome stranger confronts her and accuses her of theft. One moment Jeremiah Devereaux was in his store room alone, and the next a strange woman appeared wearing a gown specially ordered for one of his wealthiest clients. Is she a vagrant or a thief, and how on earth did she get there? When Holly suddenly falls ill, Jeremiah’s sister insists on taking her in and caring for her. Can he risk the beautiful stranger staying under his roof–or will he lose more than his merchandise?
Review: I LOVE time travel romance novels. Ever since I read one of Jude Deveraux’s books I’ve sunk my teeth into every time travel romance novel I can get my hands on. And when I saw that the male protagonist in this book’s last name was Devereaux, well, it was fate!
I loved the plot twists in Season of Love. In fact, it was unique to me as I’ve never read a book that has a plot like this one. But I can’t say much more or I’ll give away the whole book!
Holly is a great protagonist. She’s independent, fierce, loyal, and intelligent. Jeremiah is a bit stuffy, but he grew on me throughout the book. I have to say that Tabatha and Aunt Cora were my favorite characters.
If I had one complaint, it’s that you never learn exactly what happens to everyone in the end. I want to know who Gerald was courting!
I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves time travel romance or just romance in general…this is definitely a book that I will be reading over and over again!
