#My One and Only Duke by Grace Burrowes–Review-5 stars–#NetGalley

My one and only duke:.jpg 850.jpgDon’t Miss The Newest Historical Fiction Romance by Grace Burrowes—Coming 11/6/18!

 

 

My One and Only Duke is a compelling rags to riches historical fiction romance. I was captivated and invested in the characters, right from the start.  

Quinn Wentworth was a gruff, street-wise, rough-around-the-edges, intimidating man. He also had a kind heart. He loved his wacky family, and instead of endangering their lives, he was willing to die for a crime he didn’t commit, to keep them safe.

Jane Winston obediently followed her minister father into Newgate Prison. He preached to a group of prisoners, while she visited with inmates in their cells. Although Quinn Wentworth was less than pleased to have anyone bothering him, he was intrigued with the preacher’s daughter. When he discovered that Jane was a pregnant widow and impoverished, he offered to marry her. Quinn wanted to accomplish one last good deed before he was hanged. His only wish was for Jane and her baby to be financially cared for.  

When Quinn escaped death, no one was more surprised than him to discover that he was the new Duke of Waldon. Instead of enjoying his new title, properties, and bride, Quinn was busy unearthing the conniving scoundrel, who framed him for murder. 

Although Jane had never expected to live as husband and wife, she was determined to make her marriage work. Jane wasn’t about to tolerate deceit; however, she had too much of that with her first husband. So when Jane caught Quinn fabricating stories and trying to placate her, Jane decided that she’d be better off alone. The trouble was, though, Quinn had already stolen her heart. For all of Quinn’s faults, the duke was kind, loving and very thoughtful. How was Jane ever going to live without the big-hearted brute?

My One and Only Duke is an enjoyable, entertaining and well-written novel. The characters are quirky and intriguing.  I’m looking forward to Duncan’s story in book two of the series.

Thank you, Forever-Grand Central Publishing and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy. I loved it.

Bio (from author’s page on Amazon)

Grace Burrowes started writing as an antidote to empty nest and soon found it an antidote to life in general. She is the sixth out of seven children, raised in the rural surrounds of central Pennsylvania. Early in life she spent a lot of time reading romance novels and practicing the piano. Her first career was as a technical writer and editor in the Washington, DC, area, a busy job that nonetheless left enough time to read a lot of romance novels.

It also left enough time to grab a law degree through an evening program, produce Beloved Offspring (only one, but she is a lion), and eventually move to the lovely Maryland countryside. 

While reading yet still more romance novels, Grace opened her own law practice, acquired a master’s degree in Conflict Transformation (she had a teenage daughter by then) and started thinking about writing…. romance novels. This aim was realized when Beloved Offspring struck out into the Big World a few years ago. (“Mom, why doesn’t anybody tell you being a grown-up is hard?”)

Grace eventually got up the courage to start pitching her manuscripts to agents and editors. The query letter that resulted in “the call” started out: “I am the buffoon in the bar at the RWA retreat who could not keep her heroines straight, could not look you in the eye, and could not stop blushing–and if that doesn’t narrow down the possibilities, your job is even harder than I thought.” (The dear lady bought the book anyway.)

No Other Duke Will Do by Grace Burrowes–5 Stars–Book Review

no other duke::.jpg 850.jpg

New 5-Star Historical Fiction Release by Grace Burrowes! Coming 11/7/17

 

No Other Duke Will Do is a delightful historical fiction novel, written with elegance and sharp wit. Grace Burrowes has the talent of transporting the reader with ease, into the world of aristocrats. She crafts her characters, dialogue, and scenes, with authentic details and flair. No Other Duke Will Do, takes place at the Haverford Castle in Wales.

Julian St. David, the Duke of Haverford, was on the verge of ruin. His father and grandfather had made poor business choices, and their loans weighed heavily on the Duke’s shoulders. Julian’s sister, Lady Glenys, insisted that her idea of hosting a three-week house party was a brilliant one. She needed to find and marry a wealthy titled man. And it was about time for Julian to snag a well-connected Lady, and be about the business of creating an heir. Glenys planned on inviting only the richest and most esteemed titled guests. Although the party would add to Julian’s money worries, Glenys was hoping that the end result would be worth it. Despite the expense of his sister’s scheme, Julian had no intention of seeking a woman to be the next Duchess of Haverford. Besides, who would want a man drowning in debt, titled or not?

Lady Elizabeth Windham and her sister Charlotte were quite content with the prospect of becoming spinsters. The two sisters enjoyed their singleness and were in no hurry to shackle themselves to men. Attending, the Haverford Castle’s party was their parent’s idea, not theirs. However, love and romance was in the air, and one of the Windham sisters just might find herself caught in its embrace. And, as with any aristocrat three-week house party, there would be heartbreak, complications, scandalous activities, and, of course, new found love.

This is a multilayered novel that has several love stories woven into its tapestry. One of my favorite characters is Griffin, the Duke’s intellectually challenged brother. Griffin is a love. He is innocent, kind, honest, and funny, and he captured my heart. His unique personality is so superbly crafted in this book, that it jumps off the page.

I thoroughly enjoyed; No Other Duke Will Do. It’s captivating, heartwarming, and utterly engrossing.

Thank you, Grand Central Publishing-Forever and NetGalley, for my advanced review copy.

Too Scot To Handle by Grace Burrowes

Too scot to handle:800.jpg

Don’t Miss the Newest Fabulous Romantic Historical Fiction Novel, written by Grace Burrows!

Release Date– 7/25/17

 

I thoroughly enjoyed this second novel in the Windham Bride Series. Grace Burrowes has an amazing talent for describing London’s Aristocrat Lifestyle with razor sharp detail, and wit.

Military life was what Captain Colin MacHugh, was accustomed to, not his new life as a titled gentleman. As far as Lord Colin MacHugh was concerned, living as a respected gentleman in polite society should come with a rule book. At first, Colin was grateful for Winthrop Montague’s friendship, influence, and guidance, regarding the proper behavior befitting a titled gentleman. But that was before Colin was the target of a very expensive, mean-spirited escapade. But, when this prank didn’t yield the desired humiliation that Winthrop Montague had counted on, things got ugly.

Anwen Windham loved spending her days at the orphanage. Twelve rascal orphan boys had stolen her heart, especially the four older ones; and they looked up to Miss Anwen as if she were their angel. Lord Colin took a position on the orphanage’s board of directors, partly because he was interested in helping the boys, but mostly because the orphanage was one of Anwen Windham’s passions. Everyone considered Anwen quiet and unassuming; Colin knew better. Anwen Windham was a fireball, and he very much wanted to know all about her.

Ordinarily, it wouldn’t take much of a push to send Colin back to Scotland. He missed his homeland something fierce. But, Colin had ties to London, which he needed to see through first. He also wanted to teach his English gentlemen friends a lesson or two before he left. They didn’t know, that he too, could be, cunning, cold, and calculating. Colin would take his revenge, though, only in a proper titled gentleman way, of course.

If you love Regency Romance, you’ll enjoy Too Scot to Handle.
