A Love That Never Tires - Allyson Jeleyne (FREE!)


Book blurb: Linley Talbot-Martin is a girl who likes to get her hands dirty. As the daughter of a famous archaeologist, she’s been everywhere and seen everything—except London. When the Talbot-Martin team travels to Morocco for her father’s investiture, Linley finally gets her wish. But when the time comes to trade her jodhpurs and work boots for silk gowns and kid gloves, she may be in over her head.

Review: The descriptions are magnificent, the characters are likeable (mostly), and the story itself is wonderfully written. I absolutely loved how the scenes and settings are so well integrated between dialogue--a miraculous feat for a debut indie novel--instead of lumped into long winded narratives. You get behind the eyes of the characters and see what they see, as they see it. Just wonderful.

I agree with another reviewer that in the follow up (which I hope comes fast!) that we see less of Linley's father and his friends. There is also some pretty graphic love scenes about 2/3 of the way through (Heat rating of 4 out of 5).

I wholeheartedly recommend this book to all lovers of historical fiction, romance, and Edwardian love stories.

I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
