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 pre-ordered this book as it was part of The Captive Hearts series but I really do wish I hadn't bothered - unfortunately I found the book totally boring, repetitive and distasteful.. From the beginning it was clear that the heroine had suffered from child abuse and it was clear who was the villain, the only person who didn't or wouldn't see what had happened to her was the hero! The authors note says the characters must "wade through issues from Brenna's childhood", wade is the correct word for me, 19 chapters of wading is too much though. I shall think very carefully before ordering any more of this authors books.

This one is grim in parts because of the subject matter but once again the characterisation and the progress of the central relationship make it gripping. Some aspects of the plot are more unbelievable than is usual for Grace Burrowes but one is so caught up in the entirely believable characters that it hardly matters. A happy ending for the main characters but with undertones of continuing grief.

The three books in this trilogy are some of the best I have read. I took them on holiday and could not put them down. A must read.

Well this is the last book in this trilogy, and what's the saying "saving the best till last", and I LOVED IT. That is why I give it 5 stars.

This book is about Michael Brodie, Sebastian St Clair's 'bodyguard'. It continues the story from The Captive and The Traitor and explains all about Michael Brodie. Michael's father had made an arrangement with one of his friends that his son, should marry his daughter Brenna and this arrangement was made when Michael was young but Brenna was only 8 years old at the time so Michael used to watch and protect her as best he could because he knew one day she would be his wife. They married when Brenna was 16 and never consummated the marriage as Michael went off to war the morning after their wedding. He returned 2 years after the war had ended so Brenna was cross that it had taken him so long to come home. The story then tells the tale of what happened to Brenna before and while Michael was away and how they find the love that they have always shared.

This story contains a very sensitive sub plot which Grace Burrowes has dealt with in a very sensitive manner. I wanted to get into the story in some parts and shake (for a nice word!) one of the character as you felt you were there, and the twist in the story kept me entertained till the end. Congratulations on a Fabulous book. I rate this as one of my definite 'MUST READS', but read the trilogy from start to finish as this adds to the story.

As with "The Captive" and "The Traitor", The Laird does not disappoint. The Laird on its own is a lovely story beautifully written with the light touch, compassion and deep understanding of her characters; with all their uncertainty of the future, that Ms Burrowes brings to all her novels, she is a supremely gifted author and as with all her novels they grab you from the very first page and continue to hold the attention to the very last page and nowhere is this more evident than in this trilogy of novels, I was completely immersed in the story and characters until I felt I knew them and left them with deep reluctance. I would recommend The Laird and its companion novels, if there had been more stars I would have awarded them gladly.
