This is a good book. It has depth and is very real. Dorcas is independent and self-assured (outside of society) and wants more than anything to develop a yellow rose. She hadn't realized that she loved Grant until the letter came breaking the betrothal and then she cried herself to sleep every night. She is not quite able to break out of her gloom but arriving in the country has helped. There is an orangery at the estate and she has turned it into a glasshouse (greenhouse) in order to continue experimenting with her plants. She will heal. Grant is a taciturn man, content to spend time with himself. He sometimes communicates in grunts, which Dorcas finds endearing. He doesn't plan to love a woman, but he does find Dorcas interesting, and he certainly desires her, more than any woman he had ever known. This is an endearing match, one that the reader roots for as their situation takes twists and turns. I loved reading it. I recommend it.
I received a free ARC of A Trace of Roses from Dragonblade in exchange for a fair and honest review. All opinions and interpretations contained herein are solely my own.
Grant McLellon, the Duke of Blackridge, has spent a few year sand much effort to rebvuild the estate his father had let run down over the years. He cringed whenever he had to spend time around his imperious mother and coddled younger brother, and was very resistant to marrying her choice - a family friend who'd become a grasping social climber. When Dorcas entered his life and he saw a chance for a better relationship, and not merely a society marriage, he turned his attention to winning her hand.
But dangerous things began to happen to him that seem to be connected to Dorcas and her plants. To protect her, he marries her more quickly than he'd originally planned and that's when thing really heat up.
The story gives hints and twists - who could they really trust? The author keeps a careful balance between mystery and passion. If you liked Victoria Holt, you'll enjoy this book in the series.
Lady Dorcas is very intelligent and very much an independent young lady. Like her sisters she was raised in a different atmosphere than most young women around her and her interests are in Horticulture.
His Grace, the Duke of Blackridge is rather handsome and well built. He is different than most nobility because he does not depend on someone else to see after his businesses and properties, he does that himself.
These two stubborn and independent people, who care nothing about what people think, embark on a path that leads them into mystery and sweet romance.
This is a lovely book , one that was a pleasure to read.
I thoroughly enjoyed the story and the characters.
Dorcas is a triplet who suffers migraines and adores working with flowers and plant life.
Grant is a wonderful Duke with a heart of gold, who has the most annoying and troublesome mother.
Their problems soon become more dangerous, but why and who’s behind it all.
The two seem made for each other , but can they overcome their challenges and stay alive long enough to become a family.
Great tension and emotional scenes, especially between the two main characters.
