language
English
series
3.92 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: Lucas Denning is another recurring character in some of the Windham novels, and his flirtation with Eve Windham an ongoing thing. I enjoy Lucas, but for some reason I could not warm up to Eve. I wept for her as a child recovering from devastating physical and emotional injury. Th...

review 1: This is Grace Burrowes at her best. What I love most about her writing is the detail she puts into her work. She paints a world with words that draws you into the time period and makes you for a moment believe you are actually there. Her characters are well developed and like a f...

review 1: I read this book and then literally forgot I'd read it, so I went back and lo, there it was, in my Kindle. I started reading it again and it slowly, slowly came back to me...... these characters aren't very interesting and I want to love it, because I love Grace Burrowes, but I d...
The Courtship (2012)
language
English
3.9 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: I am assuming that enough readers have asked Burrowes about the progenitors of her most read series, that she felt obligated to create this back story. Since I have enjoyed the Windhams, I figured this was worth picking up. It was, but only because I have read some of the serie...
The Heir (Duke's Obsession, #1) (2010)
language
English
series
3.77 of 5 Votes: 5
review 1: There are parts of this story which I truly enjoyed, it's wittiness being number one. But there were many things which I did not. While generally I liked the heroine, she was efficient (who wouldn't want a housekeeper like that), discreet and loyal. But when it comes to her perso...

English

review 1: I loved this book. I've been devouring her entire backlist. Somehow, despite the fact that her storylines remain so much the SAME, and the conflicts so predictable, the fairy tale ending always leave me a little teary eyed. The hero- Devlin St. Just- is part of a group of 5 broth...
Lady Maggie's Secret Scandal (2012)
language
English
series
3.94 of 5 Votes: 4
review 1: The three stars reflect story pacing issues rather than writing quality, story structure or characterizations. Because Maggie and Ben's relationship is initially adversarial, the deep emotional intimacy between them is delayed for nearly 100 pages. The other element that diluted ...

review 1: I am reading this all out of order, but I am reading them as I find them. I started with Douglas, which seems to be a different series but with all the same characters. The actual 1st book is "The Heir" and this is the 4th book in the Windham series. There are 10 children all tog...

review 1: I've read three of this author's books, and I have a bit of a bone to pick. I think she struggles with setting. I don't mean she can't describe a cottage or grove. I mean I flip a page and start reading a conversation, thinking everyone is still in the spring house or whatever, a...

review 1: This book is a MESS!!! It bounced all over the place and suffered from poor plot development as well as random, disconnected sub-plots and bits of info that never quite connected. First they were childhood sweethearts. Then they were going to use eachother as covers from the mama...
The Duke and His Duchess (2013)
language
English
3.94 of 5 Votes: 3
review 1: Read this right after The Courtship, and am happy to find it was on par with The Heir. I highly recommend reading both the prequels if you enjoyed the Heir as it fills in a lot of the back story about Westhaven's half siblings and full siblings. I think I will take a quick read t...

review 1: Not a favorite but still a good read. The story of Asher and Hannah is about two people meant for each other but each being needed in different places divided by an ocean. It takes a while for Hannah to fully disclose the breadth of her need to return to Boston and she is needed...

review 1: This was a difficult book to read at one sitting. Twice the emotions were so strong I had to put it down and come back to it after a "rest".Andrew and Astrid have a history (see Gareth's book). They have been friends for several years, but Andrew left England when their friends...

review 1: I love this book. I really liked the concept of the hero having to ruin the herion for her to receive her inheritance. I had a hard time liking Gareth at first, but as I got further into the book, I grew to love him. I loved Felicity from the very beginning to the end! I just lov...

review 1: This is Michael's tale and it was, admittedly, harder to read than the others in this series.From the beginning, there was this darkness that lingered over Brenna. The more I read, the more my heart wept for her. It wasn't over the way Michael abandoned her so soon after marrying...

review 1: Frustrating finale to the Windham series. Jenny is a painter, an incredible painter, who's lived unconventionally. She had a tryst with a man at 16, took art lessons, and even sketched a man nude. Elijah is a renowned painter who leaves his family after a fight with his father...

review 1: I noticed before I was about to start this book that the rating for it was a bit lower than most of the other books in this series and I thought I was about to pick up a bit of bummer of a book. Well, not at all, and I’m quite surprised by the lower score because I really loved ...

review 1: This was an irritating book to read solely because of the multiple characters. I didn't know there relations and their sporadic appearances seem random at best. I took it as a sign of poor writing. I was irritated at the random characters with no introductions or their significan...

review 1: Grace Burrowes' "Beckman, Lord of Sins" - #4 in the Lonely Lords series  (Reaction after first reading) Even though I'm giving this one 4 stars, it's not quite as enjoyable as the previous two stories about the Haddonfield brothers (Nicholas and Ethan) in this series.  I saw a pa...

review 1: I enjoyed this book as I've enjoyed all of the stories of the Windhams. You can read it first or the series in the order it was written. I was thankful that there was this novella and would love to see one for Bartholomew as well. I was a bit disappointed in the hastiness of the ...

review 1: OK I am completely confused. How can this be a first book, when I just read the previous book in which The Earl was a character, and it is even mentioned in this book? I presume we are going to go through the remaining Duke's sons in the next books. But in the previous book, Vic...

review 1: ***partial spoiler alert***Although it is not the order in which the author released/wrote these tales, I'm glad that I read Maggie's story before I read this one. I preferred reading about a catty b*tchy mother of a duke's bastard (Cecily) first (if at all) then getting some so...

review 1: The Virtuoso features the youngest Windham son, Valentine. As the third in the series, the applied formula always becomes incredibly obvious and unfortunately, every seam was in view and rather threadbare. In this series--and Burrowes isn't the only one to do this--each series ha...

review 1: I love Grace Burrowes, and even in the novella form, she doesn't disappoint.Morgan and Archer were barely secondary characters in other Burrowes stories...they're sort of third string. Which makes this short even more fun, and shows off Burrowes' skill at character development as...

review 1: It is so difficult to pick a favorite of Grace Burrowes books because they are all so good but this one is high on my list. By now her books should be repetitive as I'm been on a mission to read them all. But no, this one was special. Louisa and her hero, Sir Joseph, each have s...

review 1: I love reading about characters with a physical hindrance. Amy's ability to read lips due to her hearing impairment becomes an asset in this story. Could easily have become a full novel but these were secondary, non-alpha characters so I understand why it's a novella. There is go...
