Grace Burrowes: The soldier ym.

Grace Burrowes kirjoittaa historiallisia rakkausromaaneja, kokonaisia kirjasarjoja joissa lukuisa määrä (yläluokkaisia) henkilöitä etsii paikkaansa elämässä. Pahimmillaan romaanit ovat rutiininomaisia suorituksia, mutta parhaimmillaan Burrowes onnistuu luomaan uskottavia henkilöhahmoja, joiden keskinäisissä suhteissa on maanläheistä karheutta.

Until his beautiful neighbor ignites his imagination...

With her confident manner hiding a devastating secret, his lovely neighbor commands all of his attention, and protecting Emmaline becomes Devlin's most urgent mission.

Daniel's true desire (Sourcebooks Casablanca, 2015; ISBN 978-1-4926-2105-8)

Daniel Banks is a man of the cloth whose vocation is the last comfort he has left-and even his churchman's collar is beginning to feel like a noose.

Resigned to spinsterhood, Lady Kirsten Haddonfield welcomes the new vicar to stay at her family's home while his is under renovation.
