About the Author

Laura Landon taught high school for ten years before leaving the classroom to open her own ice-cream shop. As much as she loved serving up sundaes and malts from behind the counter, she closed up shop after penning her first novel. Now she spends nearly every waking minute writing, guiding her heroes and heroines to happily ever after. She is the author of more than a dozen historical novels, and her books are enjoyed by readers around the world. She lives with her family in the rural Midwest, where she devotes what free time she has to volunteering in her community. --This text refers to an alternate Paperback edition.

The idiom "None so blind as those who will not see" fits both Margaret Bradford and Grayson Delaney. Both suffered traumas in their formative years that color all their actions and endangers the most precious thing of all--their true love for each other.

Grayson works at being a worthless wastrel for years until his father, the Earl of Camden, sends his guilt-ridden youngest son out on his own--no more allowance. With the title to a brewery and deed to Mayfair Manor, Grayson's inheritance from his dead mother, Grayson must decide to either sink or swim in the real world--he swims. His intelligence, determination, and willingness to work lands him at Bradford Brewery as a common laborer, where his life changes forever in so many ways, not the least of which is his deep need for the special Maggie Bradford.

Determined to never be used like her mother had been, Maggie does the job her mother did at the brewery and at home. She does it well. The workers in her home and at the brewery hold her in high regard. They realize they prosper because of her talents and work ethic. However, in the mid-nineteenth century, a woman in business walks a tightrope. Many men do not do business with a woman--thus desperate deceits and subtle shenanigans help Maggie keep her family safe and the brewery prosperous. She doesn't delude herself. She knows it is only a matter of time before some of her secrets will come to light, but she hopes and prays it is after her sisters are married and safe.

Maggie is terrified of emotions that plague her as she deals with her employee, Grayson Delaney. Her resolve to never yield to emotions that trapped her mother is sorely tested as Gray becomes a true asset to the brewery while keeping secrets of his own.

Oh my! From the get-go this is a great read. From the moment we meet Gray, we see his potential to rise above the destructive course he's set upon, and we're rooting for him. And then enters the heroine and we see in Maggie the intelligence and savvy that we wish for in our leading ladies -- shoot, we wish for that in our daughters! and bam! Just like that the bar is raised even higher for Gray. It's not every hero who can hold his own next to a gal like Maggie. But then, every hero isn't Grayson Delaney. I'm thinking you ought to read MORE THAN WILLING. This is a guy you'll be glad you got to know!

I loved these two characters, Maggie and Gray. The author brings them both to life with emotion and sharp dialog; plus the scenes in the brewery make you feel you are right there smelling the hops.
Their relationship develops at a believable pace, and their inner conflicts and outside obstacles will keep you turning the page.
This is no ordinary romance, but one to savor like a rich glass of brew.

In More Than Willing we see a guilt ridden younger son with a secret he hides from the rest of the world. As the incident which causes him to be guilt ridden happened in his teen years, he naturally see events more severe than an adult would do and it stays way longer with him than it would have with a normal adult. He feels that he has a black soul and believes his family believes so too, so with the logic of the young, he lives up to that reputation. His parent who had missed non-deliberately the opportunity to set him right, finally has enough of his son's behavior and gives him a sort of farewell gift with an ultimatum, a manor house as a home, he knows his son is avoiding like the plague and a brewery, he won in a card game to afford him a living. Essentially, he provides tough love with a cushion.

The heroine is the daughter of a viscount who had been a younger son and the daughter of a prosperous wine merchant. When the father becomes the heir and has to shoulder responsibility over his inheritance, a brewery and the estate which is entailed but dependant on the brewery, he is unable to live up to the responsibility and it is his wife who steps in. Their oldest daughter witnesses a marriage which was a love match but due to circumstances became a living hell for both parents, the father who no one treats with respect because he does nothing to earn it and the mother who works long days do keep the family going but knowing that with her work she diminishes her husband's standing in the eyes of those around them and who depend on the brewery for a living.

Laura Landon has done it again. She has created a world rich in history, intrigue and romance. What I love about her work is that from the moment you begin to read you become engrossed in both the storyline and the characters. Grayson Delaney goes from his pampered life, living off his allowance to having to earn his keep when his father cuts off his source of income. He leaves him his mothers estate and a brewery he won in a game of chance. If Grayson cannot manage the business he will be left penniless. Haunted by memories of a fire that killed his mother when he was a boy he has never returned to his mothers estate. Nor has he allowed a women to enter his heart. Maggie Bradford is strong willed and independent. Living in a world where women are expected to know their place and have no business using their brain she successfully runs the brewery in her fathers absence. Since her mothers death she has maintained the business while her father spends the money only to return from London to refill his pockets before he is off again. Maggie is unaware he lost the brewery in a card game and when she notices Grayson he is pretending to be just a common laborer. She has no idea he now owns the business and he intends to keep it that way. He needs her to show him how it runs and fears if his true identity leaks out the rest of the workers will walk. Maggie is determined to make enough profit to allow her sisters a season in London. She needs to find suitable husbands before her father leaves them in further debt. She is willing to sacrifice her happiness to ensure his sisters find husbands who will love them. From the moment Maggie confronts Grayson the sexual current is ignited. Both have secrets they hide yet both cannot deny the inevitable. This is a story of love, forgiveness and acceptance. The only fault in this book is that it came to an end.
