Book Description

Andrew Alexander will do anything to protect those he loves...

After a tragic yachting accident leaves him wracked with guilt and despair, Andrew Alexander becomes certain he doesn't deserve to be around his own family, let alone the beautiful, forthright Astrid Worthington. He wanders for years, only allowing himself respite from his self-imposed exile when he thinks Astrid safely married. He returns home to find instead that the only woman he's ever loved has been recently—and mysteriously—widowed.

...especially from himself

When Andrew leaves, Astrid refuses to pine. She finds an amiable husband and contents herself with a cordial if unexciting marriage. But her husband's sudden death and Andrew's reappearance threaten to break her heart all over again. When Astrid's life is threatened, she finds Andrew will do anything to protect her not only from her enemies, but also from the truth of his dark past.

Award-winning New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Grace Burrowes's gorgeous writing and lush Regency world will stay with you long after you turn the final page.

More About the Author

I started writing as an antidote to empty nest and soon found it an antidote to life in general. I am the sixth out of seven children, and was raised in the rural surrounds of central Pennsylvania. Early in life I spent a lot of time reading romance novels and practicing the piano. My first career was as a technical writer and editor in the Washington, DC, area, a busy profession that nonetheless left enough time to read a lot of romance novels.

It also left enough time to grab a law degree through an evening program, produce Beloved Offspring (only one, but she is a lion), and eventually move to the lovely Maryland countryside.

While reading yet still more romance novels (there is a trend here) I opened a law practice, acquired a master's degree in Conflict Transformation (I had a teenage daughter by then) and started thinking about writing.... romance novels. This aim was realized when Beloved Offspring struck out into the Big World. ("Mom, why doesn't anybody tell you being a grown-up is hard?")

I eventually got up the courage to start pitching manuscripts to agents and editors. The query letter that resulted in "the call" started out: "I am the buffoon in the bar at the writer's retreat who could not keep her heroines straight, could not look you in the eye, and could not stop blushing--and if that doesn't narrow down the possibilities, your job is even harder than I thought." (The dear lady bought the book anyway.)

5.0 out of 5 stars Superb Read 5 Dec. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have been waiting for this book since ouur Hero Andrew first popped up in Grace's first book "The Heir" and I was not disappointed . As in all her books Grace makes us fall in love with her hero and heroine and I did this with Andrew and Astrid.
Astrid had fallen in love with Andrew at the age of seventeen but he had gone abroad and she had married someone else who had died leaving her pregrant . Andrew returns to this situation, carrying secrets with him which make him unhappy to marry or have children . The book is about their developing relationship and is wonderfully written. I also loved the relationship between Andrew's brother Gareth and Andrew and how they were there for each other when needed.

This has to be my favourite book so far

5.0 out of 5 stars REVIEW - Andrew 16 Jan. 2014
By Rachel
Format:Kindle Edition
5 out of 5 for this reader folks!

WOW .. the Lord of Despair! NO KIDDING! We met Andrew in Gareth's book as he is Gareth's younger brother. Andrew was in one heck of a traumatic accident (that Gareth feels responsible for) when he was younger and he never has quite learned to deal and get over it. He closes himself off and goes inside his internal protective bubble all the while hiding the pain from those he loves. Andrew met Astrid (who just so happens to be Felicity's sister) in Gareth's book, and feels a personal protective instinct towards her. She seems to bring out his kind and caring side.

Four years have passed from Gareth's to Andrew's books and we learn that Astrid is now widowed only after two years of marriage. Andrew has been travelling for the past four years and decides it is time to come home. When he sees Astrid again, not only do all his feelings surface, but he is blown away by the distinguished lady before him, whom was always just a immature, silly outspoken young girl in his eyes. Marriage was boring to Astrid and consisted of no passion at all and has also left her with child.

The strong friendship that had formed between Andrew and Astrid in the past not only comes forth, but a bond like no other is created. They revel in each other's company, give in to their passion, fall completely in love and ultimately deny each other the long term commitment they both deserve. When danger promises to bring peril, Andrew must fave his demons and decide whether protecting Astrid is worth throwing away all his rules and beliefs.

I tell you, Grace Burrowes can write a mean romance (the fact that she writes my fave genre doesn't hurt either .. WINK). I do not reread books all that often but this series is on my "to read again" pile.

2.0 out of 5 stars Just not good enough. 6 July 2015
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I saw that Grace Burrowes was a recognised author and thought her books would be better than they are. She admits to research, but what does she research. Certainly not language or food or behaviour of the times. We have the usual over 6' hero with an eyebrow or stare with dual personalities. One persona treats women in general as whores, mistresses, or objects of no value and the other persona decides that there is one woman who will be his project for the rest of his life to adore, protect, please and satisfy and breed with. She, who has a rather poor opinion of herself will submit initially to the pleasing and over a period of time also to the protection and breeding and they will live happily ever after. They will all scoot and slather and throw logs on the fire, carry tea trays, inhabit the kitchen (I never quite understood why the kitchens were so devoid of staff), eat American muffins (apple and cinamon in one book), and none of them, not one of them in all the books will behave as the aristocracy of the 18th and 19th Century. As a wee aside what's with the 'will he, nil he', could it possibly be willy nilly? What a disappointment. I must go and read some Georgette Heyer to remind me of the joy there is in good, accurate historical romance. Can I recommend that Grace reads some Georgette as research.

5.0 out of 5 stars Amazing Grace! 22 Dec. 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
This is the 5th in the Lonely Lords series and as such it follows the path to love and redemption as with the previous Lonely Lords and the ladies who redeem them. Grace Burrows has a truly magical talent. Notwithstanding blistered fingers, if you like your novels hot and spicy then the Lonely Lords series will be for you, the story draws you into the lives of the characters and as they are linked in some way, usually by family, you don't entirely lose touch with the previous characters. Patience is a virtue it is said, unfortunately not one of mine where my reading is concerned and am looking forward to meeting more Lonely Lords,
