Review: Mini Reviews of Four Books by Grace Burrowes

Morgan and Archer: A Novella (Windham, #8.5)
Morgan and Archer, A Novella by Grace Burrowes
Publication date: November 2013
Series: Windham #8.5
Publisher: Sourcebooks Casablanca
 Amazon B&N | Goodreads
~~Reviewed by Sharon~~
It is a short but sweet story. We first met Morgan in The Heir, she being the younger sister of Anna, Duchess of Westhaven. Morgan lost her hearing in an accident, but has regained partial hearing and she also can read lips. Archer is the cousin of Benjamin Hazlit, Earl of Hazleton, and an investigator trying to solve a plot against the Crown. Loved the interaction between Morgan and Archer and also how Morgan assisted Archer with solving the mystery. This is a novella so it moves along quickly, but I would recommend this book as well as the others in the Windham series.

Andrew: Lord of Despair (Lonely Lords, #7)
Andrew: Lord of Dispair by Grace Burrowes
Publication date: December 3, 2013
Series: Lonely Lords #7
Publisher: Sourcebooks Casablanca
 Amazon B&N | Goodreads
~~Reviewed by Sharon~~
Andrew has lived with guilt for years after a boating accident that cost him the life of his father and his brother Gareth's fiancée and feels that he is unworthy of anybody's love, including Astrid, his brother's sister-in-law. This story picks up a few years after Gareth's book where we saw Andrew leave England for a tour of the continent, leaving Astrid behind. Astrid loves Andrew, but when he leaves her and England, she knows she needs to move on with her life so she marries Herbert, Lord Amery, who ups and dies, leaving her in the family way. Andrew returns shortly after Herbert's death and although he is very much in love with Astrid, tells her that he can never marry her. Watching these two very lonely people go through the trials and tribulations of their past had me sobbing like a baby at times, but there was also the joy of seeing them work through their past guilt to get to their HEA. If you enjoy historical romances, then I highly recommend you adding Grace Burrowes to your list of authors.

Douglas: Lord of Heartache (Lonely Lords, #8)
Douglas: Lord of Heartache by Grace Burrowes
Publication date: January 7, 2014
Series: Lonely Lords #8
Publisher: Sourcebooks Casablanca
 Amazon B&N | Goodreads
~~Reviewed by Sharon~~
Douglas, Viscount Amery, came into his title upon the death of his older brother and finds that the not only is his estate in financial difficulty, but he knew absolutely nothing about how to go about making them profitable. Guinevere Hollister, who oversees her cousin's estates in his absence has an illegitimate daughter, Rose, who is the granddaughter of the Duke of Moreland. She is happy, but lonely, with her life and just wants to be left alone. Douglas is thinking about purchasing a property of Gwen's cousin, so he persuades Gwen to travel with him to the property to see if she thinks it would be a profitable purchase and to teach him about land husbandry. Gwen is awkward and uncertain around Douglas, but he is so gentle with her that you just want to swoon. There are a few tense moments when the Duke of Moreland sets out to have Gwen marry his heir, but Douglas knows that he is the only man who could ever make Gwen happy and is just as determined to win her love for himself. Once again, Grace Burrowes has written a story that will stay with you long after the book has ended.

David: Lord of Honor (Lonely Lords, #9)
David: Lord of Honor by Grace Burrowes
Publication date: March 4, 2014
Series: Lonely Lords #9
Publisher: Sourcebooks Casablanca
 Amazon B&N | Goodreads
~~Reviewed by Sharon~~
Grace Burrowes has once again written another magnificent Lonely Lords book.  David, Viscount Fairly, has inherited a high-class brothel, which he wants to be free from.  Letticia (Letty) Banks was a former mistress to David's late brother-in-law.  When David offers Letty the position of Madam at the brothel, she knows that it is not the life she wants, but must accept or be forced to find another protector, which she has no interest in doing.  Loved the interaction between David and Letty and the way they overcame the hurdles set in front of them to get to their very own HEA.

  2. I've read a few of her books, just not these. I absolutely loved Darius! I will get to them all, eventually!
