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.
It’s quite amazing how Ms Burrowes made two ordinary characters (Douglas and Gwen) into such a wonderful moving story. My heart even ached for poor young Victor. Nicely done.
A great read!
I could barely put it down! What a wonderful tale, with fine characters playing various roles. It is easy to imagine it all might have happened in just that way....
What a wonderful book! Just the right amount of every facet of the "perfect" historical romance. But the absolute best part was the relationship that develops between Douglas & Rose - beautiful!
