The eleventh book I finished in 2014 was A Gentleman Says “I Do” by Amelia Grey. I finished this book on 3/2/14. I rated this book 3.25 stars out of a scale of 5. This was the first book I had read by Amelia Grey.
This story is about a man (Iverson) who is trying to find the author of some poetry that has landed his family in the “scandal sheets.” When he arrives at the author’s house to try and scare some sense into him however, he finds not the author but the man’s daughter (Catalina). Her quick wit and seemingly unending strength draw Iverson to her and make it impossible for him to stop thinking about her. As Catalina searches for her father, she finds herself falling in love with Iverson. As the two become closer, they try to overcome their differences and the secrets Catalina is keeping in order to see what could become of their future.
One of my favorite aspects of this story was the way that the hero cherished the heroine so devoutly and protected her from harm. The heroine has been going through life always taking care of her family, and the book ends with the hero taking care of her and making it so that she would not have any serious worries in her future. While unrealistic, this is one of the things that I find I like most about romance novels. Men protecting women and cherishing them as if they were precious, priceless items.
While this wasn’t one of my all time favorites, it was a sweet and interesting love story and I would recommend it. I will read more by this author as well.
