Book Description

Greed, prejudice and a stolen identity.

In the four weeks since her guardians’ death, Eulogy Foster has lost everything.
Penniless and alone she seeks the help of her estranged brother, Lord Lucien Devlin. But Devlin throws Eulogy onto the streets and the mercy of a passing stranger, Jack Huntley, who becomes an unlikely ally. As Eulogy seeks the truth behind her birth, she is drawn into the world of art and artists, where her morals are challenged and nothing is as it seems.

Jack Huntley: bitter, cynical and betrayed in love. He believes women are devious, scheming, untrustworthy creatures - and when he rescues a naïve Miss from being raped, his life is about to change forever. There is something about Miss Foster that haunts him and challenges his emotions. But despite their growing attraction, Eulogy will not share her secret, which means he cannot trust her. Caught in a deadlock, both denying their true feelings, events take a sinister turn as someone seeks to silence Eulogy…forever.

4.0 out of 5 stars Sweet, sexy, fun! November 4, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
4.5/5.0

This is one of those times I curse Amazon for not having a 1/2 star option. "Eulogy's Secret" really is better than a 4 star but there were just a few glitches that kept it from 5 star perfection.

This book is an absolute delight to read. Wonderful, yummy, sweet, sexy... oh the list could go on and on. Eulogy's determination combined with her compassion make her a heroine everyone falls in love with. She doesn't always make wise decisions and her innocence gets her into trouble more than once but through everything, her sincere desire to do right and stand tall makes her one of the most sympathetic heroines I have read in a long time.

Jack's character is a little more complex and not quite as understandable. He is human. Haunted by a betrayal he cannot overcome, he still finds himself drawn to Eulogy. His actions and reactions are at times frustrating. While one grows to understand and love Jack, it is our heroine that cements the desire throughout the story.

In reading this book, two things really stood out for me:

1. The beautifully written characters, Elliot wrote them so well, the reader not only loves them but becomes invested in their happiness AND they stay consistent to their personalities throughout the story!

2. The sexual tension in this story was incredible!! Oh my, was it written well! I absolutely LOVED the fact that Eulogy's character was sweet yet strong, even though she was not seen as "upper-class". She stuck to her convictions even when faced with her desire and love for Jack. L.O.V.E.D. IT! It had my heart thumping and hands sweating SO much more than if the author would have had Eulogy just give in. It was such a refreshing and riveting change from other HRs.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Definite 4.5 Historical - Captivating Characters November 10, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I just finished Eulogy's Secret and loved it. I became invested early on in the characters -- our determined heroine, Eulogy, and our sweet rescuer Jack. They say opposites attract and I was reminded of this often while reading Eulogy's Secret. Eulogy was supposedly lower crust, Jack, upper in society. Jack was tortured by his past, yet so drawn to Eulogy he was always "there" when she needed him the most. That's one thing I found so endearing about him --his inability to stay away from her. I loved Eulogy's determination (even if at times she made bad decisions) and her kindness. Jack wasn't supposed to be kind but it didn't take the reader long to discover the gentle soul abiding in him. What I liked most was Jack's total infatuation with Eulogy (later love) and his disbelief in spite of it. What I loved most about Eulogy was her tendency to see the good in everyone -- even those who wished her harm.

I love British writers, and yes, you can almost always tell. I adore hearing them talk, and really enjoy the slang they gravitate toward in their novels. A little sprinkle here, there is most enjoyable. Elliot is a good writer and one of her strengths is her ability to develop diversities in her characters and yet make them believable.

I recommend Eulogy's Secret to all readers who love Regency (and the ton) of course!

I can't wait to read more by Grace Elliot.

4.0 out of 5 stars The essense of romance... January 13, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
This book is absolutely captivating and the essence of romance. I was hooked from the first page and unable to put it down until the very end. Grace Elliot's writing is filled with so much emotion, and her characters are complex but relatable. It's very easy to identify with the hero of the story, Jack Huntley. He guards his heart because he cannot stand the pain of being humiliated and betrayed by love again. The heroine, Eulogy, must juggle a family secret that could change her life and her true feelings for Huntley.

This story is full of passion and mystery, yet at its core, I think it's one of the sweetest love stories I've read in awhile. The roadblocks in the relationship do nothing but strengthen the love of the main characters as well as make for an engaging and intriguing read. My love for the historical romance genre is definitely growing thanks to amazing authors like Grace Elliot.

3.0 out of 5 stars How long can you drag it out?
Wanted to like Jack and Eulogy, but too much back and forth indecision. Haven't read a historical romance in a long time, so maybe that's the trend now.
