A Rogue of Her Own was written by Grace Burrowes. It’s the fourth book in her Regency-era Windham Brides series. I was very excited about the opportunity to read this book; I haven’t had a chance to read the first book in the series, but I did enjoy books two and three, so I was looking forward to this next installment in the series.
There was a hint in No Other Duke Will Do that Charlotte and Sherbourne were going to be paired up, and I remember saying that Burrowes had her work cut out for her because Sherbourne was quite troublesome. Sherbourne’s redemption is certainly an interesting process, and he makes a rather unique romantic lead. He doesn’t have a title, nor does he want one. He has spent his life making money, and is motivated by any opportunity to spite the aristocrats who have shunned him since childhood. Read more
Marrying Winterborne is a historical romance novel by Lisa Kleypas. It’s the second book in her Ravenels series, and I recently listened to the audiobook via the Audible app. I had picked up the first two books in the series during a sale, and I started listening to this book almost immediately after finishing Cold-Hearted Rake.
Lady Helen has been sheltered for most of her life, rarely venturing away from the manor house in which she was raised. She has not encountered very many eligible young men, and finds Rhys Winterborne absolutely charming. Their courtship actually began in Cold-Hearted Rake, and I was very interested in seeing what was going to happen to Helen and Rhys.
As the owner of the largest department store in London, Rhys Winterborne might be one of the wealthiest men in England, but his working-class origins make him wholly unsuitable for the daughter of an earl. Rhys never imagined that he would ever fall in love, but he can’t stop thinking of Lady Helen. Read more
No Other Duke Will Do is the third book in Grace Burrowes’ Windham Brides series of historical romance novels. This is only the second book of hers that I have read, but she is quickly becoming one of my favorites.
Julian St. David is the Duke of Haverford. The family seat is in Wales, where he is quite content to remain. However, the estate has fallen into financial ruin, mostly because his predecessors cared more about spending money on rare books than maintaining the estate. Despite this- or perhaps because of this- Julian’s sister suggests throwing a lavish house party so that Julian can find a wife.
Elizabeth Windham is not an heiress, nor is she particularly looking for a husband, but she finds herself drawn to Julian. Likewise, Julian realizes that there is no one he would rather spend time with. But is attraction and infatuation enough to sustain them beyond the length of the house party? Read more
