My Thoughts On The Romance Novel, One True Love

Source:  Goodreads

From Goodreads...

Lord William Prescott is in want of a wife.  Unfortunately, the lady he wants is betrothed.

Miss Cassandra Chambers simply cannot understand her attraction to Lord William.  After all, she is supposed to be in love with Mr. Miles Parker.  In a scandalous twist of fate, Cassie's future changes when Lord William rides to her rescue, saves her from ruin, and makes her his wife.

When William comes to believe that Cassie's heart may always belong to another, he is determined to lock away his own.  If only he could lock away his desire for his One True Love.


I have to admit that I don't usually read these types of romance novels.  You know the one with the woman in the throes of passion and the bare chested man on the cover ripping her clothes off.  These covers normally turn me off from a book, but for February I wanted to read at least one of "these types" of romances.  And I have to say it was what I expected.

I did like the story and I liked the characters.  It was a bit slow in the beginning (and a bit repetitive), but by the middle it picked up nicely.  A few things happened that I didn't see coming, and in that I was pleasantly surprised.  Now I have read a few romance novels in my day, and I knew there would be some sexual content.  But I have to say that this book has some VERY graphic scenes, so be prepared for that if you choose to read this book. Also,  there are several typing errors through out.

Even though this type of book is not one that I typically read, it was ok.  Will I rush out to get another one like it?  No, but that's just me.  If you love romance and are not put off by graphic content then give One True Love a try.


  1. Yes, there are fewer and fewer good romance novels out there. I love reading romance, but some of what is published A little too much!

    1. I know! I love romance novels too, but this one was just a bit much for me.

  2. I don't read any "bodice ripper" books. If I want a good romance, I usually turn to Christian Fiction books.

    1. You are absolutely right, and that's what I'll be doing in the future. I won't be reading another one of these. It's just not for me. Thanks for commenting!
