Not My Favorite Hero
on 8 October 2014
I don't know why I continue to be drawn to Grace Burrowes' books unless it is that all the Lonely Lords books and the Windham books seem to be somewhat related and there is that part of me that is determined to understand all the connections. In truth, I have really enjoyed some of these books. However, what I am finding more and more as I read through the Lonely Lords' series is that these lords "think" and "analyze" way too much. No wonder they are so lonely and lost. Even after they become "found," they still seem to be way more expressive in their ability to emote and often are touchy-feely toward other men which I don't have a problem with, except when it is overdone as I think it is in several of her books.
In Trenton's story, I found him to be really too weak, there for awhile. Yes, he had suffered terribly in his first marriage and he was all that was/is honorable, but his wimpiness in not going forward with a permanent solution in his relationship with Ellen left me frustrated. Instead, he played the old game of - "I want her" but "I can't have her" so "I'll stay away from her" but no "I can't stay away from her" - enough already! Also, obviously, there is so much more to the story than was written in this book, I will now have to go buy more books in this series to get the background of his mean old father and learn what happened to his sister "Leah" and so on. This is always the case. I should have just begun from the first book and read my way forward. It seems to me these individual books could be standalone stories, but I have found that there are always so many things referred to but not answered, one must go back and figure out which book(s) to read in order to get the facts.
