One Truth Revealed
By Robena Grant
GENRE: Contemporary Romance
At thirty-five-years of age, and with pressure from her adoptive mother, Lina Bright is ten days away from undergoing Artificial Insemination in London. She doesn’t need a husband. She travels to Oldcastle to meet her biological mother, a spinster who runs a village teashop. To keep her mother’s secret, but determine her father’s identity, she creates the cover of scouting for property to start a new school.
A bachelor at forty, Drew Compton is an English Professor in Oxford. Diagnosed with “poor swimmers” his fiancée left him. He plans to live out his life alone, with his books. Disliking his mother’s secrets and controlling ways, he seldom returns to Oldcastle. But a chance meeting has him intrigued. Who is this chic Londoner?
As Lina’s plans for a school become a reality, romance blossoms, but roadblocks ensue.
Will Lina and Drew trust in each other to overcome the difficulties and create a future together?
Heat. She craved his heat. Her arms encircled the back of his neck, pulled his face tighter, closer, her lips tingled and begged to be crushed harder.
“Lina,” he whispered, his breath fanning her cheek. Then he took her mouth possessively.
She almost couldn’t remain standing. “Again,” she murmured. The headiness of his kisses, the heat swirling in her belly, the weakness in her knees, had her pressing even closer. Their tongues met, tangled in a mating dance she’d rarely experienced. Everything about this man spelled permanence. The girls below shouted, “Keep him, we want him.” Dazed, she pulled away, took in a deep breath, and refocused.
If she didn’t keep her wits about her she’d be dragging Drew into the shelter of the ruins and having her way with him. Could this castle be a magic place? Did it encourage romance, and illicit rendezvous? Rendezvous? Oh, blast it; she couldn’t get involved. There were nine days left until her expected ovulation. She’d chosen her sperm donor. She’d committed to doing this, and had an appointment scheduled with a London clinic. That’s why she had to go back.
Drew rested his forehead against hers. “Everything okay?”

Review for ‘One Truth Revealed’:
Robena Grant is an amazing story teller and author. It was refreshing to read such original characters like Lina and Drew. In the world of romance, it’s difficult to discuss such matters as infertility and problems such as, but Grant delivers a solid punch to her book which gives the readers more depth and layers to her characters than you could ever ask for.
‘One Truth Revealed’ is filled with family secrets, and new beginnings. I appreciated the courage Lina had to seek out her mother, and to develop a relationship with the woman who was forced to give her up for adoption. The characters she meets along the way in town are memorable and each page I turned I would dive further into their charms and wit. ‘One Truth Revealed’ is a sure hit on your summer reading list, and I was grateful that it found its place on mine!
