Book Description

Praise for RITA-nominated Lady Sophie's Christmas Wish:

"An extraordinary, precious, unforgettable holiday story."—RT Book Reviews, 4½ stars, Top Pick of the Month, Best Historical Romance, RT Book Reviews 2011 Reviewers' Choice Awards


'Tis the Season for Scandal...


Years ago Lady Louisa Windham acted rashly on a dare from her brother, and that indiscretion is about to come to light. She knows her reputation will never survive exposure. Just as she's nearly overwhelmed by her dilemma, Sir Joseph Carrington offers himself to her as a solution...


But Sir Joseph has secrets as well, and as he and Louisa become entangled with each other, their deceptions begin to close in on them both...


More praise for Lady Sophie's Christmas Wish:

"My Christmas wish for you is that Santa brings you this book...a joyful sensual read."—USA Today Happy Ever After

"Supremely sexy, emotionally involving, and graced with well-written dialogue...a fascinating, enjoyable read."—Library Journal


"Burrowes continues to write outside the usual Regency box with strong characters and humor similar to Amanda Quick's."—Booklist



Editorial Reviews

From Booklist

Lady Louisa Windham is tired of society’s demanding seasons, and she knows that because of a secret youthful indiscretion, she will not marry. Rather than dance with likely fortune hunters, she enjoys talking with her brothers’ military friend Sir Joseph Carrington. Sir Joseph is embarrassed by his knighthood and wants only to find a wife who will be a mother to his two daughters and secret children. Her brothers ask Sir Joseph to keep an eye on Lady Louisa, then realize that they belong together, despite threatening notes and looming scandals. As Louisa and Joseph try to avoid gossip, love, and their inevitable marriage, Burrowes concocts a fun Regency Christmas romance to add to her sparkling Windham series (The Virtuoso, 2011). Humor, strong female characters, and fresh situations are hallmarks of this award-winning author, and readers will regret that there are only a few remaining Windham siblings. Fans of Amanda Quick and Loretta Chase will enjoy Burrowes. --Amy Alessio

3.0 out of 5 stars Lovely book, but not favorite of the series October 5, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I have come to love Grace Burrowes' Windham family series. The series centers around the Windham children, sons and daughters of the Duke and Duchess of Moreland. With 3 brothers and 5 sisters, the family is always involved in each other's business and personal lives. In Lady Louisa's Christmas Knight, it is Louisa's turn to find herself a husband.

While I enjoyed Lady Louisa's Christmas Knight, it is not my favorite book of the series. From the beginning, I was a bit confused. Sir Joseph is the love interest to this story, he is a former soldier and pig farmer. He is not titled and has no desire to be, which was perfectly fine by me and Lady Louisa did not seem to mind either. However, Joseph constantly considered himself beneath Louisa while doing all he could to avoid a title. He was attracted to Louisa but did not want to work to really win her over. I felt like there were contradictions throughout the book, leaving me puzzled at times.

Joseph and Louisa are a wonderful match for each other. They are both socially awkward, but they understand each other. The couple work together and fall into a relationship out of practicality and mutual attraction. There is not much wooing on either side, but it works for this couple, and sparks ignite for them. Joseph understands Louisa whereas Louisa's family does not understand her most of the time. Louisa is brilliant, but she was used by her brothers when they were younger for her intelligence and then ignored once they were older. While there is a lot of love in the Windham family, there are also mistakes and misunderstandings. In the end, the family is always there for each other, which is part of why I love reading this series.

The flow of the story in Lady Louisa's Christmas Knight felt a bit disjointed to me.

5.0 out of 5 stars lovely, intense, and well constructed October 2, 2012
By Jeanne
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Grace Burrowes has another hit in her Windham family series! Once again she draws the reader into the lives of the characters with such skill that we find ourselves almost there with Louisa and Sir Joseph, as well as with the rest of the family. Having read all the preceding books in the series certainly help with understanding the secondary characters, but even a reader new to Burrowes will appreciate the complexity of the story and the depth of characterization. In this novel, one is reminded of Christmases where someone opens a package a tiny peek at a time. We know that both Louisa and Joseph have secrets, but they are revealed in tiny bits. Also, reminiscent of O'Henry's short story "The Gift of the Magi," each knows the others secret long before they are truly revealed, making the forgiveness each thinks impossible a "done deal," as it were. Burrowes has successfully taken a fresh approach to one of the standard romance plot elements. Grace Burrowes has fast become one of my top three or four favorite romance novelists. I can't wait for the next one.

Lady Louisa's Christmas Knight by Grace Burrowes
Historical Romance -Oct. 2nd, 2012
4 stars

Sweet, poignant, and perfect for the holidays. Grace Burrowes has written yet another hit!

Lady Louisa is the daughter of a Duke and knows her mind. She is very intelligent, practical, and most importantly tired of the Season! She has given up on marriage and love. She decides to ask her parents let her sit out the next Season so her younger sisters can find husbands. But her devious and mischievous father has other plans. He has composed a list of prospective husbands. Unfortunately, Louisa finds them all boring as ditch water. All of them except a retired soldier and farmer named Sir Joseph Carrington. Sir Joseph really likes Louisa but her title makes her too far above him. Yet when her brothers ask him to keep and eye on her, he happily agrees. But when scandal erupts due a lecherous suitor Sir Joseph offers to marry her for her protection and is stunned when she agrees! Soon both find a quiet and enduring love. But all this is threatened by a blackmailer.

Perfectly wonderful describes this tender Christmas romance. I enjoyed that both characters are mature and know their own minds. Their `courtship' was realistically slow and sweet as each grows to admire and care for the other person upon more acquaintance. I liked that each are very honorable people with warm, caring hearts. And I felt that both had found an unexpected haven in each others arms. I also enjoyed the addition of Sir Joseph's little girls. The other secondary characters like the so-called fluffy dandy and Louisa's sister made the book more intriguing. I hope to read more about them, too.

Slow, thoughtful, and romantic...this is a holiday treat!

3.0 out of 5 stars Not Burrowes' Best December 21, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I love Grace Burrowes. Her first book, Heir (The Duke's Obsession), was the first romance novel I ever read. And had I read a lesser romance novel, I might not have decided to read more. Plus, her Virtuoso (The Duke's Obsession) is one of my most favorite romance novels to date.

But there are times when I find her writing style, which can be wordy, and the character development to be difficult to work through as a reader. I struggled at the beginning of Lady Louisa's Christmas Knight to even figure out what was going on. I felt that perhaps I was supposed to already know something about Sir Joseph from Burrowes' earlier books in the series. I was re-reading sentences or passages to see if I could make better sense of their interactions or even the physical scene itself.

This struggle through the beginning stayed with me throughout. Joseph doesn't think Louisa would stoop so low as to marry him even as she shows interest. Both protagonists have a secret and hide it from the other but, as is true in many romance novels, the secret doesn't seem so salacious that it must be kept. And yet it is and that creates manufactured drama and stress and anti-climatic moments of revelation.

I have high expectations for Burrowes and I expect to be swept away in her stories. When I'm not, that disappointment feels more acute than with some other authors. Perhaps that is not fair to Burrowes but it is only because when she is great, she is truly great.

2.5 out of 5 stars.

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.)
