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.)

This is the first novel I have read by Grace Burrows. I was impressed with her writing and descriptive scenes but the story faltered a bit in the second half. This Christmas themed story is original and the leads are especially unique.

Lady Sophie comes from a large rambunctious family. She has a heart of gold and when her servant abandons her baby, Sophie finds herself a reluctant guardian of a squalling infant in a coaching inn near the Christmas Holidays. To her great relief, Vim Charpentier is there to lend a helping hand.

They mange to get to her London home and Vim is under the impression that Sophie is the housekeeper or cook of the great town house, certainly not the daughter of a very noble family. Vim knows his way around babies, as he is an older brother. He assists Sophie as much as possible. Vim is a handsome thoughtful man, who is a world traveler but not a jaded rake. He is on his way to his uncle's house when he finds Sophie. At first, he does not let on he has a title, liking the atmosphere he has created with Sophie the servant. He likes her too much and worries if she should discover he is more than a commoner the magic would disappear.

Sophie truly falls fast for Vim. Why wouldn't she? He is so kind and he truly cares for their young charge. Sophie almost feels lost thinking of his departure. Sophie also keeps her identity a secret and she does this for the very same reasons as Vim, she enjoys the anonymity of being a commoner.

Together these leads create an idyllic atmosphere in her home. Sophie cooks and performs other domestic chores and Vim diapers, burps and rocks the baby and helps Sophie out with shoveling snow and making fires for cheery rooms.

Format: Mass Market Paperback
A duke's daughter with a heart of gold, Sophie's grown up protected by privilege, wealth and her loving family. She's also a bit of soft touch. When their maid runs off leaving her baby with Lady Sophie at a stagecoach station, Sophie is at a loss. It's fortunate for her that the young Vim Charpentier knows quite a lot about babies and helps her. Sophie somehow invites him to her family London home and as he helps with the baby Kit, Sophie offers him shelter from the storm. Without having made arrangements for a place to stay in London, Vim agrees against his better judgment. He finds himself drawn to the mysterious Sophie who appears to be a trusted servant, possibly a housekeeper. As he teachers her how to care for the baby, they fall in love.

Add to the mix a mutual desire for anonymity, a case of mistaken identities, lack of caution and judgment. Things take a turn when Sophie's three brothers appear and Vim learns her true identity. Though Vim has a title of his own, he never expected to woo a duke's daughter.

Full of missed chances and misunderstandings, these star-crossed lovers make for a fun read.

*There will be unavoidable spoilers*
Has Christmas cheer vanished by April and you'd like a little of it back? That's what happened to me, so I read "Lady Sophie's Christmas Wish."

The book takes place in a London townhouse during a blizzard. That was a clever way to suspend, temporarily, the rules of society. The daughter of a duke can do as she likes: wear old dresses, cook for herself, putter around and be herself. Until she is left with a servant's cast-off infant and a mysterious gentleman who knows how to care for the baby--something the heroine finds baffling. He is a kind, caring, warm man--something that the baby makes more obvious.

The book made me long for old Georgette Heyer stories. She set up her premises so cleverly that the characters always act logically. Readers can try to poke holes in her tales, but every time they think "Wait! Why didn't the hero . . . ." They will remember that Heyer covered that contingency and the hero is following the only course open to him.

The lack of such credibility was my main difficulty with this book. The hero is an expert on babies--although he has spent much of the last decade traveling the globe--because he has younger sisters. The heroine is one of 10 children, but she knows nothing.

The hero has spent the last 10 years hiding from an embarrassing incident that could have been explained in 10 minutes by any of his family.

The hero and heroine do not recognize each other's names, although their country homes are next to each other.

The hero's uncle and aunt have difficulties of the kind that evaporate when examined. They are said to be alone and lacking care, yet they have three daughters and a flock of grandchildren who seem to love them.

There were just too many holes in the story, and I kept falling into them.

One of your employees abandons her infant with you and takes off for parts unknown in the middle of a blizzard. You know nothing about caring for a child and a nice looking man offers to help you with some childcare tips, drives you home, and comes into your empty house. The first night he "pleasures himself" in your brother's bed. The next night he winds up sleeping naked with you in your bed. And then, of course, you give your virginity to this stranger.

Even in the 21st century, this behavior seems reckless at best.

Of course, he's a very nice man, she is kind-hearted, they really like each other...all works out in the end...I know it is a romance, but jeez, Grace, how about grounding your work in just a *little bit* of reality?
