Everyday he works to heal and get revenge on his tormentors. Meeting the beautiful Countess of Greendale throws him off a bit, but eventually Gillian is someone he doesn't and can't live without.
I was pleasantly surprised to find the story takes place in the same world as The Windham series. I loved Christian and Gilly. The growth of their relationship is so sweet & sexy. Ms. Burrowes has way of taking the heartbreaking and the heartwarming and weaving them together so beautifully. The Captive is a great start to this new series. I think historical lovers will eat this one up. ...more

Jenny has been on the market for a while and in all the time she hasn't really been interested in anyone. But in walks Elijah Harrison. He is a talented and popular artist. She finds herself very attracted to him. Said attraction and sharing their mutual love for art brightens both of their holiday cheer.
Excellent story! Being the only sibling in my family still unmarried, I felt a real connection to Jenny and how she felt. Lady Jenny's Christmas Portrait is sweet, heart warming and enchanting. Jenny and Elijah's stared talent as an interesting factor to the story. I think out of all the the Windham Christmas novels, this one is my favorites. Jenny marks the last of the Windham sibling books - I'm definitely gonna miss spending time with them....more

Friend of the family Lucas Denning is in need of a wife. While Eve and Lucas are good friends, she really isn't his type - but he is surprised and turned upside down by her passionate kisses.
Delightful read! With each book I know I'm in for a treat. The charming Windham Family never fails in pulling me in to their world. The secrets and their loves are intriguing. Lady Eve's Indiscretion is a great addition to the series. Lucas & Eve share a wonderful friendship and have kissed on several occasions, while eager for more they are for a time reluctant. I did find them both frustrating at times, but It will also make you love them all the same time. A stunning story filled with beautiful settings and a sweet romance. Fans of the series will love this one. ...more

He thinks Lady Louisa is the perfect Lady for him and his daughters - who are in desperate need of a mother. Sir Joseph has a secret of his own, he just hopes the reveal will not scare Louisa away.
Terrific Christmas read! I loved Louisa and Joseph's story. Each of Ms. Burrowes books hold secrets to be revealed. The suspense and anticipation always has me on the edge of my seat. Lady Louisa's Christmas Knight is romantic, fun and heartwarming. A great way to spend the holiday. While set in different times - Grace Burrowes novels are an excellent cure to my Downton Abbey withdrawals. The Windham daughter's are just a charming as their brothers, this book is a must read....more

It is known that Prudence will soon be Malcolm's bride, but Malcolm is much more interested in Amelia. To her absolute frustration Amelia likes him too. The situation causes all sorts of complications.
Amelia is a wonderfully strong character, the kind I like reading about in regency books. I love the fact that Ms. Ramsey made her a writer, something that is secret and a complication. But a brilliant part of the story. Compared to Prudence, Amelia is overflowing with passion and charm. Malcolm is almost instantly enthralled with her. I loved watching the relationship blossom.
Scotsmen Prefer Blondes is an excellent read. It really surprised me. I wasn't sure I was gonna like it, but I ended up love it. Amelia and Malcolm are great characters. Their story is sensuous and heartwarming. Historical fans will want to add this one to their list....more

With there being a lot at stake, she enlists the help of the very tempting Bejamin Hazlit to find her missing item.
I love Lady Maggie's story. Benjamin Hazlit and Maggie Windham make a surprising pair, but all together a wonderful couple. Their relationship has a rocky start, with a lot of snipping at each other, but their coming together was sensuous and lovely. Lady Maggie's Secret Scandal is a delightful read. Full of mystery and romance. Ms. Burrowes spins enchanting stories, that get better with each book. I love the suspense that spans the story just as much as I do the love story. The Windham's series is both intriguing and easily addicting. ...more

But she keeps finding herself in that exact situation - the temptation is just too much to resist. One burning kiss and they are lost for each other, although it takes them a while to admit it. A yummy and all around fun read! Cara Elliott is a new author to me - but I was pleasantly surprise with this story. Too Wicked To Wed is a page turner. Delicious and sexy. Connor Linsley is a bad boy - a saucy lead, that I loved. He was one of the reasons I was eager to read this title. I wasn't disappointed and would recommend this one to historical fans. ...more
Ever since finishing up Julia Quinn's Bridgertons and Lisa Kleypas' Wallflower series I have been looking for something to fill the void, The WindhamEver since finishing up Julia Quinn's Bridgertons and Lisa Kleypas' Wallflower series I have been looking for something to fill the void, The Windham siblings definitely fit the bill. If you enjoy Quinn or Kleypas you should definitely give Grace Burrowes a try.
Valentine Windham's love, muse and passion is playing the piano. But tragedy strikes in the form of a hand injury. Making it devastating and painful to play. A friend and doctor suggests taking a break. With his grief he heads to the country - with hope of mending. He runs into Ellen FitzEngle, a widow he once shared a passionate kiss with.
A charming read. The Virtuoso is elegant, witty and deliciously sexy. When first introduced to Val in The Heir, I thought for sure he was destined to be with Anna's sister. But Ellen was a surprise and turned out to be the better match for him. I love the Regency era and Grace Burrowes brings it to life so beautifully. ...more

A delightful holiday story! I don't read many holiday themed books but I loved this one. It was sweet, but ever so tantalizing. Lady Sophie's Christmas Wish is a story of longing, hope and love. Ms. Burrowes does an excellent job pulling at your heartstrings. If you are looking for a cozy seasonal read this is definitely one to check out. ...more

Jamie is knocked off his feet in more ways that one by Eva who just so happens to get to the priest first.
The middle ages isn't my favorite setting to read, but I thought I'd give this one a try. In Defiant, Kris Kennedy takes you on a an exciting adventure. Sexy, charming and lets face it the cover is some yummy eye candy. Jamie and Eva's journey makes for a fun read. It could be just be me but this book has a great opening line - that I think will shock readers and in the next second make them giggle. Historical fans will enjoy this one. ...more

But when he kidnaps Brina Chattan -- she isn't exactly what he was expecting. A wild side that refuses to obey or be tamed.
Highland Hellcat is entertaining. A fascinating read. You can really tell how much research was put into this book. Full of romance and intrigue. Exactly what I hoped for when I seen the title and cover. This was my first time reading anything by Mary Wine, and for me this was an enjoyable read. I really liked Brina. She was such a free spirit and she was exactly what Connor need it. If you love Highlander's... you'll love this one. ...more

ThenNice is a word that is used to describe Gwen Maudsley, while lucky isn't a word associated with her at all. First her brother comes to bad ends. Then she is left by not just one, but two fiances. There is only so much a girl can take and frankly Gwen has had enough of "nice". Being wicked sounds good right about now and so she sets her sights on and the most wicked of them all, the rake Alex Ramsey.
This book was my first venture into Duran's historical world, it doesn't take long to realize this author has a talent for drawing the reader in and writing the most interesting characters. I found both Gwen and Alex engaging and definitely delicious when they are brought together. I did feel bad for Gwen, being jilted is never fun and if anyone deserved a bit of wildness it's definitely her. Within the pages of Wicked Becomes You, you will find adventure and hot tingling romance that will keep you turning the page....more
