A Love That Never Tires by Allyson Jeleyne #Review
Posted by brriske
Linley Talbot-Martin is a girl who likes to get her hands dirty. As the daughter of a famous archaeologist, she’s been everywhere and seen everything—except London. When the Talbot-Martin team travels there for her father’s investiture, Linley finally gets her wish. But when the time comes to trade her jodhpurs and work boots for silk gowns and kid gloves, she may be in over her head.
Even though she can out-ride, out-shoot, and outsmart any girl in London society, Linley is destined to be the failure of the season. No one she meets cares about ancient pottery or lost Buddhist texts, and fundraising efforts for future expeditions keep coming up short. If the Talbot-Martin team doesn’t find money soon, they will be out of a job, and Linley will lose everything she holds dear.
Patrick Wolford, Marquess of Kyre (pronounced ‘Keer’), is a man who knows his place. Well-connected and respected, he is everything everyone expects him to be, but beneath his façade, he is as neglected and crumbling as the family estate. Now the strain of keeping up appearances is taking its toll. The smart thing would be to marry the heiress nipping at his heels and be done with it, but when he meets Linley Talbot-Martin, who dares to shake up his seemingly proper world, he must choose between the life he’s always known and one he never dared to dream of.
A Love that Never Tires is the first book in the Linley and Patrick Edwardian Adventure series. Linley Talbot-Martin is a girl who has traveled the world abut not spent time with society. She wants to learn about archeology expeditions and ancient artifacts not what makes the prettiest dress. Patrick Wolford Marquess of Kyre is a man with connections and power but is keeping up appearances to cover his money issues and dwindling finances. He should find him a rich heiress to marry but then he meets Linley. The book starts out in Morocco in 1913. Linley is 20 and considered an equal member of her father’s team, not just the boss’ daughter, despite her lack of formal education in archeology. Linley traveled with her father since her mother died before she could remember her mother. But Linley’s team needs more money for the current expedition so she goes to London. While Linley is drawn to Patrick, this is not going to solve her problems, and the same goes to Patrick but can they be together and solve their problems together? I will leave it to you to read from here.
This book is really good. The characters are developed very fast, with the personalities coming through very fast. The book moves at a nice and keeps the reader interested. I would recommend this to anyone who loves historically placed romances. Warning, this is the first in a series and you must continue the series to find out what happens next.
I’m giving this book 4 hearts
