Originally reviewed for Buried Under Romance www.buriedunderromance.com

A Single Kiss is the first novel in the contemporary Sweetest Kisses series by Grace Burrowes, an author who made her name writing historical romances. Even though this is a new genre for her, Burrowes delivers a well written, intelligent story of lawyers working in the difficult field of family law. A family law lawyer herself, she is very comfortable with lawyer-speak and the courtroom scenes, and like the relationships in her historical novels, the romance between the two main characters is believeable and sweet.

The very likeable main character is lawyer Hannah Stark, who is living with her second grade daughter Grace. Hannah was bounced between foster homes throughout her childhood, and because she is afraid that some elements of her past may put her and Grace in danger, they are living under aliases. Hoping to get a position in coorporate law, she applies at a law firm run by the three Knightley brothers. Due to her background, she is reluctant to practice family law, but that is the only position the Knightleys have to offer at the moment. Given the promise of a coorporate position as soon as one opens up, she reluctantly joins the firm.

Trent Knightley is immediately attracted to Hannah, but is confused by her solely business like demeanor and her secretiveness about her private life. This does not stop him from trying to get closer to her as he helps her through some difficult situations, including a co-worker who tries to sabotage her, but can Hannah put her past behind her, truly move on with her life, and learn to trust Trent? And, with his help, can she survive the biggest fight of her life?

Staggeringly hard hitting on the emotions! This impressive first attempt at Contemporary Romance and at casting a story in the author's own every day world went well beyond expectation. The heroine- oh this sad woman,who got none of the breaks in life many of us take for granted- yes, the author nailed it with her. All alone, her story would be dreary to read, but surround her with a precocious seven year old daughter with an imaginary unicorn friend, a beautiful man who sees through those high, cold stone walls she puts up and loves what he sees, and a few other loveable characters and it becomes heartwarming and poignant.

This is the first book in a new series and I love what I see here. There are three brothers who own a law firm as equal partners. They are loving family, but very different both in personality and their focus of law. This is Trent's story. I look forward to seeing each brother find the special woman for them.

The story opens with Hannah Stark getting hired by the Knightley brothers to fill a temporary position in Trent Knightley's family law division and then slated to move over to James Knightley's corporate law. The brothers were all suitably impressed with her interview seeing her as coolly competent and a bit of an enigma since she gave very little away about herself or her private life. Trent is overwhelmed so he happily takes her and in so doing finds that the heart he thought was permanently crushed by his ex-wife still has some life in it yet. He is bewildered by this first attempt back into relationships and thinks he's doing it all wrong because of Hannah's responses to his gentle overtures. She hates his area of law and she has rather strong 'keep away' vibes.

Well, I have been reading and loving Grace Burrowes historical romances so I thought I'd try her new contemporary romance series, even though I usually don't read contemporary. Glad I did. This was a very good read with Trent, Hannah and her daughter Grace having distinctive personalities and weaknesses. There was a lot of information about fostering children and a scary look at child services that reveals the flaws and loopholes in the system. Of course with 3 lawyer brothers named Knightley, only a white horse is missing. Wait, wasn't the older horse turning white with age? Well, Grace Burrowes has again thought of everything to make this and the rest of the series a complete success. Ultimately a very loving couple, character growth, the taking of chances and a bit of scary disturbing action. Great!

Excellent story, with characters that seem worth knowing, involved in life. I like that Burrowes' characters do have a "life" beyond the immediate romance, and are deeply committed to their work. Lawyers are not always the most sympathetic characters, so it is nice to see some who seem to care about their clients and their work. Insights into the workings of the Dept. of Social Services really added interest to the story, and the frustration of dealing with bureaucrats was all too realistic. And it is always a pleasure to see the good guys win.

The Sweetest Kisses books are a wonderful series, and I have added Grace Burrowes to my "authors to follow" list.

This is a departure for the author, who normally writes historical romance, but it had the same lyrical feel, the same attention to detail as her other stories. As a practicing lawyer, she also nails the legal details and courtroom issues. My only (tiny) objection to the plot is the fact that it is an office romance between a boss and subordinate; in the "real world" of employment law that I practice, no lawyer in his or her right mind would ever have an office rule condoning relationships between a partner and associate that reported directly to him or her, but prohibiting married people from working together. If you can suspend belief on that point it is a lovely read cover to cover
