Description from

Ethan Grey’s life was shattered…

Estranged from his family, widowed after an unhappy marriage, and weary from fighting his troubled past, Ethan Grey now has a chance for redemption. His son’s beautiful and remarkable governess might help him battle his ghosts, but it’s been a long time since he let himself get close to anyone.

Alice Portman has more in common with Ethan than she can comfortably admit. For now, she’s satisfied with helping him rebuild his life and family. But the dangerous past is about to catch up with them both.

An unforgettable Regency tale of two wounded people who get another chance at love.


Ethan is my favorite hero in this series…so far.  I do like him so much more than Nicholas but that said, Nick shows up in this book and he’s much more likeable. I like the story and how the characters appear in each book.  I like how Burrowes deals with the romance even though I think the prim governess falls a bit too quickly for the charm of our hero.  Alice is the perfect person for Ethan and even though they both have scandalous pasts they are meant to be together.

Since I am reading an Advance Reader Copy it is difficult to say if the few negatives I have will be sorted out in the release of the finished book. So I will not mention them in the hope that editing for continuity will solve all the issues.  Because other than minor but frustrating moments this is an enjoyable series that sets us down in the time period.

  1. I will definitely going to pre-order Ethan’s book!


  2. Looking forward to your review of Beckman. I will be watching your blog with interest next week because Tessa Dare is amongst my top favourite authors. I can’t wait for the release of ANY DUCHESS WILL DO on 28th. I have my copy pre-ordered.

    I admit that I have not read anything by Tessa Dare. I will have to see if I can expand my list of go-to authors. Looking forward to it.


    • Edyta, I’m giving you an advance disclaimer. She writes humorous not always reverently accurate to the regency era. I always think of her novels as modern day fairytales set in the regency era.
