The Antique Love


Helena Fairfax
Contemporary Romance

"And I don't think daydreaming is going to rustle us up a hero."





Penny Rosas loves all things antique and romantic.  Though running her grandfather's antique shop has gotten increasingly complicated since her old partner stormed out, leaving the books a mess.  To add to it all, in walk a handsome cowboy to her London shop, messing with her heart and her head.  Especially when he asks her to design and furnish his new home.  Can Penny keep things professional with this handsome man?  Because of all the things she may not know about Kurt Bold, the one thing he's made quite clear is he is looking for a suitable wife and to be as far away from romance as possible.  Can Penny show him the folly of his way of thinking, or will he teach her a lesson in falling in love with someone she can't have?

My Opinion: This was a delightful contemporary romance.  The sweetness of the story and the fun story that tripped lightly through it's arc was a satisfying read I would recommend.  The main characters had a sweet and clever connection and a handful of side characters nicely filled in the story without making it either crowded or bare of the real world.  Penny was realistic and not overly dramatic while Kurt was a natural hero.  It had good pacing and naturally brought in new events and pulled you along.  The romance was sweet and left me smiling like an idiot in the most delightful way.

I received a free copy of this book to review.  No other compensation was given.  The summary and review are 100% my own.

  1. I love this genre, I have been reading Roberta Grimes' series Letters From Love, and it's contemporary in my opinion and I try to read mostly that. Her books are fantastic, robertagrimes.com is her site I recommend them. This book looks great as the characters seem to be good ones. I think I will give this one a look!
