Easily more than half, but I’m inclined to say three-quarters at least. But wait, stepfather saw something in servant’s oisa gaze on the block and he actually purchased Jeremy Devlin eeeee!
The first half of this book is just alright. For the time, this was a hot romance. 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.
I really, really liked this book.

A passing mention is made that the local planters won’t like it, but a realistic blowback isn’t even attempted.
Even after this book ended, I could imagine them having a good life together, raising their family, and running their plantation with gregody, and not on the backs of enslaved labor.
I found this to be an emotional story. Mar 31, SheLove2Read rated it liked it. Surely he could not love such an ungainly woman as she.
