I keep reading Grace Burrowes in an attempt to understand her modus operandi. Her characters internal life is well well written and enjoyable, although the reasons for their conflict are sometimes quite thin. Her settings are appalling, I don't know if it is Gone with the Wind or some imaginary land, certainly not England and very hard to imagine. Her aristocrats behave like servants, carting round innumerable tea trays, invading kitchens (we know that 19th century kitchens were dark, candlelit and cooking was by fire, either open or perhaps a stove and ovens were at the mercy of the size of the fire for their heat. Cooking was thus a strenuous difficult job, but Grace's aristos swan into empty kitchens and turn out marvellous batches of baked goods. Thank the Lord the Earl of Sandwich had invented sandwiches or Grace would have been snookered. Why her characters behave this way and why she feels the need to let her readers know that in her world people ate bread, American muffins (why they did not eat English muffins is another one of Grace's mysteries) scones (all slathered in butter and jam) and drank tea morning, midmorning, lunch, afternoon and night and at every available opportunity in between. Dinners strangely bear no resemblance to the era. One other nitpick, what are these iced teacakes so gluttinously devoured. A tea cake here is a currant bun with a shiny skin that you toast). Why does she go to such lengths to describe in detail settings and behaviours that are so wrong. How much better her books would be if they had even an element of accuracy. Names are another hardship what happened to Charlotte, Sophia, Jane, Elizabeth, Lettice etcetc. One particular dreadful effort at comedy had a child named Halifax Chesapeak All very British isn't it.Read more ›

Grace Burrowes never ceases to amaze me. How on earth she manages to be both prolific AND so damn good boggles the mind. I haven't yet read all of her books (I have to catch up with the earlier Windham stories) but everything else I've read of hers has been a 4 or 5 star read for me, and Ethan is no exception.

Ethan Grey is the illegitimate older brother of Nicholas Haddonfield, now Earl Bellefonte and hero of the previous book in the series. Inseparable as children, they were wrenched apart because of a misunderstanding by their father, and Ethan was packed away to school - a school at which Ethan was not well-treated.

Ethan is now a widower with two young sons, Jeremiah and Joshua. His marriage was not a happy one and although he loves his boys dearly, it's clear he has trouble connecting with them. Fortunately, help is not far away in the form of Miss Alice Portman, the governess he engages to teach the boys. She accepts the job on condition that the boys spend a certain amount of their time with their father, and the relationship that is built between them is a joy to read.

Another highlight is the way that Ethan and Nicholas build on the relationship they re-established in the previous book. Grace Burrowes has a knack for writing male friendships that are 'typically' male while they also have an undercurrent of affection. She is also incredibly skilled at writing children that are believable - I'm not a great fan of children in romance novels, but Ms Burrowes makes them seem like real people rather than one-dimensional cuties.

It took a while for me to work out why I didn't like this. I think it has to do with the author using quite serious subjects within the novel but giving the characters 21st attitudes to them so it jarred. The topics were then rushed in favour of the happily ever after expected in this genre which (to my mind) trivialises the subjects involved.
However, I didn't hate it and if the author is serious about writing about alternative lifestyles in the 18th century then I liked Hadrian's brother Harold, and I'd quite like to read his story

This is the third book in the "lonely lords"series of books by Grace Burrowes.I found it an exciting read and I cannot wait for "Beckmann" ,the next book in the series. I love the way all the characters in her books are linked together and you really want to know what happens to them. This includes the Heir, the Soldier, the Virtuosa, Darius,Nicholas etc

H and h are both damaged by incidents in their past. Their love gives each of them the chance to move on and build a new, happier life together. For me, one of this author's great strengths is her ability to develop believable family relationships. Ethan's relationship with Nicholas, first explored in Book 2, continues to unfold and we learn more about why the brothers' estrangement lasted so long and why it has been so hard for Ethan to rebuild the close relationship they had as boys. By the way, Ethan's sons are a delight!

I, too, have a problem with context. Ms Burrowes does not seem to have researched attitudes and mores in England during this era for the upper ten thousand. Also, the language -and menus(!) - can jar somewhat.

The constant state of unnecessary angst the Hero suffers in every book is unbelievable. I keep thinking, just get the characters to talk, for Heaven's sake!

However, I still want to read her books to get all the familial connections settled into happy endings.
