Review of Douglas



DOUGLAS may be purchased here.

DOUGLAS
Grace Burrowes

Douglas Allen, Viscount Amery, has unexpectedly inherited his family's title and lands, but he is ill-prepared to run his estates.  Gwinevere Hollister is recommended as someone to teach Douglas about land management, because she has been managing her cousin's estate for several years.  Douglas and Guinevere are attracted to each other, but Gwinevere has been hurt by love before and is hesitant to allow a man into her life.

DOUGLAS is an entertaining historical romance with a wonderful hero and an independent, but traumatized, heroine.  Douglas is a great hero, who has an emotionless facade, which hides a truly good, loving man.  This can be seen in the way he treats his family, Gwinevere's daughter, Gwinevere, and even his horse.  While I can understand Gwinevere's reticence  in allowing a man into her life, she carries it a bit far in not trusting Douglas with the truth of her situation, even after proving himself trustworthy.

All in all, DOUGLAS is a great read with one of my favorite heroes, but I wish the heroine had been upfront about her situation a little sooner.

Review of Andrew



ANDREW may be purchased here.

ANDREW
Grace Burrowes

Andrew Alexander has, finally, returned home after wandering around Europe for several years.  Andrew's brother, the Marquess of Heathgate, and the rest of his family are thrilled.  Unfortunately, Astrid Worthington, the Viscountess of Amery,and the reason why Andrew fled to Europe, is widowed and pregnant with the possible next Viscount.  When it becomes evident that someone is trying to murder Astrid and her unborn child, Andrew feels he must try to save them.

ANDREW is an enjoyable historical romance with likable characters and some danger and intrigue.  Andrew is a likable, protective hero, who makes it his mission to help Astrid.  Unfortunately, his reasons for not being together with Astrid seem a little lame.  Fortunately, Astrid overcomes his reticence, and they make a great couple.
