review Î eBook or Kindle ePUB Ô Grace Burrowes
Been a long time since he let himself get close to anyoneAlice Portman has in common with Ethan than she can comfortably admit For now she's satisfied with helping him rebuild his life and family but the dangerous past is about to catch up with them. Disappointingly averageHaving read four of the books in this series the author's formula her 'go to' plot and descriptive elements are revealing themselves For example how each of the main character smells is described very early on The Hero wonders at his attraction to a woman who hides the depth of her beauty in some form of drab dress The heroine is dazzled by the Hero who is unutterably handsome and is to varying degrees charming but also with the exception of Nicholas book2 reserved and to some greater or lesser extent emotionally depressed With regard to the plot both the Hh have incredible sexual attraction to one another which usually begins to be satisfied about 25 30% of the way into the story Before that however there are allusions to BIG SECRETS in the past lives of both characters that stunts their happiness and maintains their resolve to NEVER MARRY How the BIG SECRETS are revealed and resolved while the Hh get to know each other biblically is the primary plot element that drives the story Of course the Hh overcome the obstacles and marry The author doesn't actually use the 'and they lived happily ever after' trope but it's there nonetheless To her credit Grace Burrowes' protagonists one or both of them usually have some element of their character that is distinctive Ethan is no different and this difference is unusual for male characters in romance novels Unfortunately it isn't different enough to raise the level of this book above the dozens of other period romances you've probably read It's just a typical romance novel that contains too many coincidences to be believable Bottom line both characters are likable but not terribly interesting The writing is okay but not moving or exciting and the action is slow even through the big kidnap scene My best advice Read Book 9 David That's where I started before I circled back to read the series in order Since 'David' it's been a long disappointing slide to 'just average'

Ethan Lord of ScandalsEthan Grey's life was shatteredEstranged from his family widowed and weary from fighting his troubled past Ethan Grey now has a chance to replace loneliness with love His sons' beautiful and stubborn governess might help him battle his ghosts but it's. reread 2201535 I'm not 'into' historical romances but I have to say that Grace Burrowes writes a pretty good one I have no idea if there's any historical accuracy in her books and I'm pretty sure that uite a bit of the 'sexualseduction' scenes would be considered atypical for the time period but that's okay I prefer a bit contemporary ness in books I read
