Jonathan Loring has no one else to turn to when his son's illness doesn't get any better. Having scorned the resident midwife and herbalist since he has known her, he must humble himself to ask for her help. He doesn't expect to find himself attracted to the healer.
Grace Daniels has been rejected by society since her father passed away. Her illegitimacy and her career keep society from accepting her in their ranks. All except Viscount and Viscountess Blackthorn whom she saved from certain death. They have even helped her set up her practice in their little town.
When Jonathan goes to Grace for help with his son, she does it for the sake of the boy. She would never let a child suffer because of the choices that adults make. But as the two foes spend more time with each other, they realize they have more in common than they could ever imagine and their attraction for each other soon becomes too hard to deny.
I enjoyed meeting Jonathan and Grace in Passion and Propriety. I had a feeling that de Sallier would match them together. I could see the chemistry between the two of them even then.
Loved this story. I like a man that will do anything for his child and admit when he is wrong! I loved watching Grace and Jonathan go from foes to lovers. To see the attraction blossom and watch them fall in love.
I hope that de Sallier continues with this series as there are several characters that I would like to see get their HEA!
