Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

After a detour to launch a new Scottish Victorian romance series with The Bridegroom Wore Plaid (2012), dazzling romance writer Burrowes returns to the Windham sisters series (Lady Louisa’s Christmas Knight, 2012). Fans and even newcomers alike will be happy to find Burrowes focusing on the recurring rogue Deene, or Lucas Denning, as he finally falls in love. Lady Evie Windham does not see marriage in her future because of a mistake she made with another man when she was 16. While fleeing from that incident, she had a bad fall from a horse. It took her years to recover, and she has not since ridden a horse. Because Deene intends to fight for custody of his niece, he reluctantly gets serious about finding a wife. Both are letting the past blind them to future possibilities, but, even so, they can’t deny their mutual attraction. The machinations of Evie’s family and the fun chemistry between the pair will have romance readers smiling. With each volume in this popular series, Burrowes creates another strong and unique story with memorable characters. --Amy Alessio

More About the Author

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.)

In thinking about how to review this book, it occurred to me that many of my observations about it were similar to those I've had regarding other books by this author. This is not to say that her books are all the same--I have read most of them, and I feel that Grace Burrowes is a very fine writer--but they do seem to evoke a similar set of responses in me. So this is a review of the book, but also a review of the writer.

Here are some reasons why I enjoy reading Grace Burrowes:

I like the way she uses language. Her writing style is clean and elegant, and her dialogue is generally sharp, unpredictable, and true to the time period. She writes family wonderfully. The relationships among the Windham family are as interesting and well developed as the relationships between her heroes and heroines--often more so. I also think she does a great job writing men, and the relationships between them. Her heroes are complex and sexy, without falling into the stereotypes typical of the genre.

Here is the reason I sometimes put Grace Burrowes' novels down without finishing them (as I nearly did with "Lady Eve's Indiscretion"):

I don't enjoy the way Grace Burrowes writes women. I generally start out liking her heroines, but by the last third of the novel I feel completely exasperated with them. I used to think this was because they generally end up weeping a great deal, no matter how stoic and fierce she portrays them at the onset. But after reading "Lady Eve," I can see that it's more than that. Grace Burrowes' men are so kind, strong, noble, and reasonable, that the burden of creating conflict in the novel usually falls on the heroine. Somewhere mid-book, as with Lady Eve, Grace Burrowes' heroines start to behave in ways that are inexplicably contrary and stubborn.

I'm actually giving this book 3.5 stars. As this was my first Grace Burrowes book I wasn't sure what to expect. I felt a little lost and not because I picked up a book that is in not one but two series, but because half the time I didn't know some of the places that I was obviously suppose to know or some of the people, who I would've known had I read the previous books. I couldn't keep the names and couples straight, again if I had read the series I would've known them, so that was my own fault. As to the plot of this book I enjoyed it , but found some parts kinda dragged on. Yes, we know Eve had a terrible fall from a horse while running from her ruin...it was explained quite a few times. I also didn't understand why he was trying so hard to get his niece away from her father. I understand it was a death bed promise, but it wasn't like the father was beating or starving the girl. She was well taken care of and loved. So what was the problem? And for someone who was ashamed and scared for anyone to find out she wasn't pure, Eve sure threw herself at Deene an awful lot. The book wasn't to bad, but I won't be rereading it.

Lady Eve, pretty, petite, with phenomenal inner strength and awareness of who she is as an individual, is the youngest of the Duke and Duchess of Moreland's children.

The marvelous Morelands with all their scandals, familial loyalty, and love rally around their little Evie as she begins to live again after seven years of struggling back from a horrible accident and an even more horrible experience with a crude, deceiving cad. She worked long and hard to regain her physical good health and has tried to do the same with her heart but it still has deep wounds that refuse to heal. The family's humor, honesty, and protectiveness is amazing to see as they set in to see that she has a chance to become sparkling, mischievous, happy person she had once been.

Lucas Dennning, the new Marquis of Deene is a longtime friend and neighbor of the Morelands and served on the peninsula with two of Eve's brothers. He and Eve shy away from each other because of a kiss under the mistletoe in an uninhibited moment when Eve was quite young. He has always been like another brother, but little by little, even though both of them vow they are just protecting each other from the social "hunters", they find a unique connection that begins to smolder, sizzle then flame into a breathtaking love.

As Marquis of Deene, Lucas has a load of responsibility to deal with, something quite new to him. Also, he is determined to gain custody of his dead sister's child to honor his sister's wish and to give the darling little Georgina a home and place in society that befits her heritage on her mother's side. Lucas also has Anthony, his cousin, to deal with. Anthony has supervised the stewards over the Deene lands for years. He will inherit the title should Lucas die before producing an heir.

Awkward plot development and the assumption that you'll catch on to what has happened in the past...First I thought maybe the heroine's tragic Fall had been covered in another book. Other scene shifts are equally confusing. After much hinting we finally learn what happened to Eve. I found the emotionally fragile heroine tiresome, even though her circumstances could have been very moving. Personally, I'd rather see a spunky character with a sense of humor than a trembling flower.... Found this book lacking in heart, though it oozes emotion.
