THE ANTIQUE LOVE by Helena Fairfax

One rainy day in London, Wyoming man Kurt Bold walks into an antique shop off the King’s Road and straight into the dreams of its owner, Penny Rosas. Lively, spirited and imaginative, Penny takes this handsome stranger for a romantic cowboy straight from the pages of a book. Kurt certainly looks every inch the hero…but he soon brings Penny’s dreams to earth with a thump. His job is in the City, in the logical world of finance—and as far as Kurt is concerned, romance is just for dreamers. Events in his childhood have shown him just how destructive love can be. Now he’s looking for a wife, right enough, but what he wants is a marriage based on logic and rational decisions. Kurt treats Penny like he would his kid sister, but when he hires her to help refurbish his beautiful Victorian house near Richmond Park, it’s not long before he starts to realise it’s not just his home she’s breathing life into. The logical heart he has guarded so carefully all these years is opening up to new emotions, in a most disturbing way.

First line:
"The tall man stood in the doorway for a second, his keen grey eyes sweeping the interior."

Good, clean romance that will make you wish for more such stories from Ms. Fairfax.
Penny is a romantic. She wants to find true love with a man who will be utterly in love with her. 
Kurt is a logical thinker and wants a wife who will not be romantic or passionate. 
The two meet at Penny's antique shop and Kurt is soon enthralled with the way Penny tells the stories and history of her antiques. He decides she's the perfect person to rennovate and furnish the house he just bought. 
But there isn't always a silver lining in England, even though it rains there often enough. Penny's business partner is mean and a thief. Thankfully, we don't have to deal with him too much. And thankfully, Kurt is there to protect Penny.
How will Penny be able to break through Kurt's protected heart and show him what love can be? Will Kurt be able to set aside the past to find romance and passion?
