About the Author
Lorraine Britt is a fourth generation Native Texan who is also immensely proud of her Louisiana heritage and solid Southern roots. As an enthusiastic lover of the written word, inspiration struck Lorraine and she began to bubble over with her own ideas. Grasping hold of her lifelong dreams, it wasn’t long before she was putting pen to paper and letting her fingers fly over a keyboard to bring her own characters to life. When she isn’t busy scribbling notes for her next idea you might find her whipping up delicious creations in the kitchen or putting miles on her car on road trip adventures. Lorraine is equally passionate about music, movies and sports. You’ll no doubt find these familiar themes woven throughout her books. Lorraine and her family currently make their home in northeast Texas.

But let me focus on the pluses of this book :) I quite liked the characters. Wil and Elyze are quite an interesting couple. Both of them lived through a heartbreak in their recent past and that changed their their lives quite a lot. It also changed their way of thinking and in a way their dreams. Wil and Elyze are on the two opposite sides of the social specter. Where Wil is rich, successful and with a family money behind his back, Elyze barely manages to make both ends meet while studying, working and raising her young brother. The connection between them is undeniable from the first moment their eyes connected. After going through some though situations they finally manage to find their special place and HEA :)
As a whole this wasn't a bad read. It was not exactly my type of a book as it was a little bit too sweet from my tastes. The book was really well written with really interesting characters. It is a somewhat short story which makes it perfect for a relaxing summer night read. So if you are into sweet romance stories I will definitely recommend you check In Love's Defense, as this book is exactly up your alley :)
This review was originally posted at Living In Our Own Story Book Blog. I received an ARC of the book in exchange of an honest review.
This is my first time reading a story by Lorraine Britt, the story kept me involved, and interested throughout. I would have liked for it to have been longer, that is my only complaint, I wanted to know the rest of the story, Sequel maybe? As I said this story is a sweet romance and short, so it can be read waiting for and appointment etc... I hadn't read a sweet romance for a long time and it was a nice reintroduction to them. There is not much
sex in this book, but that is a plus if you do not enjoy all the erotic stuff out today.I believe this author has a lot more books to write, and I would like to see her write a good long book, please? I would be first in line to buy it, she tells a good story! I read the book for review as part of the MNP Review Team.
I was given this book to read in turn for an honest review!!!
Wil McLaglen was feeling the burden of a life without someone to share it with; until he meets Elyse Gibbs. Wil McLaglen knew she was the woman he was to share the rest of his life with; can he break the walls Elyse has built round her? Will Elyse let Wil in and give her the love she deserves?
This is the first of Lorraine Britt’s stories I have had the pleasure of reading and it won’t be my last. This story is a sweet, beautiful and heartfelt romance, one that will have you swooning; without all the drama that’s full of love, care, amending broken souls and giving hope. Wil and Elyse are both loveable characters, sweet, polite and deserving of happiness. Elyse’s brother is a wonderful little boy with a heart of gold considering all he has lost. I really loved Wil’s assistant Peggy; she is the adopted Mum/Grandma everyone needs. Lorraine Britt draws you into the story right from the beginning. Her characters are well developed and intriguing; you will want to know their story. I can’t wait to read more from Lorraine Britt.
If you love sweet romances without the drama, you will absolutely love In Love’s Defense by Lorraine Britt.
