New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Grace Burrowes writes The Lonely Lords with passion and heart
"Grace Burrowes, with her exquisite style of writing, has given the reader another superb love story set in one of the most interesting times in English history. Captivating!" --Long and Short Reviews for Douglas
Douglas Allen needs a home for his aching heart
Douglas Allen, Viscount Amery, hates having arrived to his title without knowing how to manage his properties. Guinevere Hollister is a distant family connection raising her daughter in rural obscurity while stewarding the estate. Douglas reluctantly puts himself in Gwen's hands for lessons in land husbandry and discovers beneath her prickly exterior a woman of passion and honor. Yet despite the closeness they find, she will not marry him.
Guinevere Hollister needs a champion
When the powerful Duke of Moreland arranges an engagement between Gwen and his heir, Douglas knows the marriage is not what Gwen wants. In Douglas's eyes, Gwen deserves to make her own choices, and he will take on family, the meddling duke, and Gwen's own lonely, stubborn heart to ensure his lady's happiness.
" I was certain by the end of "Douglas"'s book, Grace Burrowes would have me melting and falling in love! YUP she not only succeeded in that, but made it happen in the first chapter when we experience our socially and a little emotionally inept yet handsome viscount fetch a young girl out of a tree." - The Reading Cafe"Her style is distinctive and the wit and humor she writes with has definitely seated her on my must-read list." - Bitten By Love Reviews" If you are a fan of the Windham series by Grace Burrowes this is a must read. "This is the "missing" prequel to the Windham series."" - Mixed Book Bag"This is a truly romantic tale, beautifully told and refreshingly honest."Douglas" makes a true and unsuspecting knight, who thankfully dons his shining armour without hesitation. Guinevere is a very hurting Lady in Distress, never expecting a knight, and I cheered when that worthy captured her heart." - Eyes.2C Reviews" I enjoyed seeing what Ms. Burrowes does when she has children in a book. Gwen loves her daughter so much, and because of what happened around the conception of said daughter, has locked herself away from any hope of marrying, feeling herself unworthy and a disgrace to family/high society." - The Official Tory Michaels"Ms. Burrowes is a constant storyteller and one of my favorite. She shows her skill at bringing characters to life through the pages of her stories. " - My Book Addiction"One thing I love most about Grace Burrowes is how she manages to connect her many historical series. "Douglas" contains one of those links you'll be surprised to see who shows up! The Lonely Lords series links to the Windham/Duke's Daughters/Duke's Obsession series. Such a magnificent, tangled web she weaves!" - 3 Chicks After Dark""A very heartwarming and sincere love story about two people finding healing in one another." - Romancing the Book"DOUGLAS: Lord of Loneliness stands alone beautifully with a memorable love story that is laced with lots of family love and meddling along with humor, and mores of their time in history. Best of all the reader gets the satisfaction of seeing emotionally wounded characters heal and flourish when true love moves in to stay. Grace Burrowes, with her exquisite style of writing, has given the reader another superb love story set in one of the most interesting times in English history. Captivating!" - Long and Short Reviews" I'm reminded of the theme of Ms. Burrowes books, at least in my opinion, is that FAMILY IS FIRST AND FOREMOST. I do love how the characters hold family dear and they are THERE for them. No matter what. It's a joy to read. Once again, a lovely way to spend a snowy afternoon! Or even a lovely spring day...depending upon when you are reading my review.
