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.)

I'd been searching for holiday romances for Christmas when I came across Lady Sophie's Christmas Wish. Lady Sophie is the sensible daughter of a Duke, and is left the reluctant guardian of a baby when the mother (a household servant) flees and abandons her baby. Enter our hero, Vim Chapentier- he steps in and helps Sophie with baby Kit and when there's a snowstorm, he stays at the house and helps her to look after Kit. Vim assumes Sophie is a member of the household staff and he doesn't tell her that he is titled, and heir to a viscountcy.

The first half of this book was brilliantly written. I enjoyed the scenes with Sophie and Vim with Kit. Their fall into love is very believable and sweet. Vim is kind, handsome and thoughtful who truly cares for Kit. Sophie is sweet and caring with a habit of taking in strays. They both enjoy the anonymity of being 'commoners' and the cosy domestic atmosphere they create definitely helps them fall more in love with each other.

Then Sophie's brothers (finally) arrive at the house and aren't impressed when they realise Vima and Sophie have been alone together for several days. They then go to Vim's Uncle's estate in Kent (where Vim was headed originally) and then on to their own familial estate. This is pretty much where I started to enjoy the book less. Sophie was inexplicably stubborn about not marrying Vim, she wasn't forthright and honest with Vim about her feelings, and Vim struggles to understand her actions- as did I, most of the time I just wanted to shake the girl. Sophie often seemed very different, and I was frustrated that Vim wasn't more insistent when he'd compromised Sophie and loved her! Although, I was of course still rooting for them :)
All in all, I found the second half rather frustrating.

A well-written and extremely enjoyable story with two likeable and rounded lead characters. The interplay between Sophie's brothers adds an excellent exta-dimension. But when, oh when, will American writers learn that - if they must set their novels in England and particularly in an historical period - there are things we don't say now, let alone two hundred years ago.
For example, walking 'a few blocks'; having 'a passel of children'; a servant, or indeed anyone, called Joleen ... and so on. Please Ms Burrowes, if you don't know what's right and what isn't, employ someone who does.

Interesting and unusual story - Sindal is definitely a charmer! Reservations? Well, the references to muffins and cookies etc. are irritating. The American cookie is, and always has been, called a biscuit in UK and muffins are not cakes - more like crumpets really. I can't imagine Regency gentlemen or ladies being excited by them!! Still, if you can ignore those historical and linguistic faux pas, it's a great tale.

this is the most delightful of all her books l think, the rather retiring daughter of a duke is left literally holding the baby when the mother, one of household staff, runs off at the carriage station. The hero comes to her aid and he is the most delightful man one could ever meet, there is a terrible snow storm at the time so he insists that he helps her home and gradually they first fall in love with the baby and then with each other, but of course the path to true love is never smooth, not too much angst to be upsetting just enough to make a good story. all the minor characters are wonderfully rounded too. great read anytime of the year

I have read all the books in this series and they are well worth a read if you like historical romances and the stories of a family. Grace Burrowes is a marvellous author bringing the books to life.
