An Honorable Life Daniel Banks is a man of the cloth whose vocation is the last comfort he has left-and even his churchman’s collar is beginning to feel like a noose. At the urging of family, Daniel attempts to start his life over as vicar in the sleepy Kentish town of Haddondale, family seat to the earls of Bellefonte.
Challenged by Passion Resigned to spinsterhood, Lady Kirsten Haddonfield welcomes the new vicar to stay at her family’s home while his is under renovation. Suddenly the handsome visitor has Kirsten rethinking her ideas about love and marriage, but a dreadful secret from Daniel’s past may cast a shadow too long for either of them to overcome.

Romance fans rejoice once again. Grace Burrowes is not only prolific but gives us THE BEST romances to fall in love with. I swooned over book #1 in this series, Tremaine’s True Love, and this one is scrumptious also. This is a standalone novel but I encourage you to read the Lonely Lords series also.
Daniel Banks is saddled with a marriage to a witch of a woman. They are estranged and she is behind the scenes plotting his destruction. Kirsten has reason to believe she is infertile and has broken off two engagements. Now she is resigned to spinsterhood, that is until she falls for Daniel. This seems to be a problem that cannot be solved, especially in the Regency Era when there was scandal surrounding divorce and annulment.
You will rapidly turn these pages to discover how a happily-ever-after can be accomplished. And there will be some surprises along the way. We have all of those delightful Haddonfields who add to the story. Nita is away on honeymoon but the other sisters are on hand. The Earl and brother George play important roles as well as Viscount Fairly, Daniel’s brother-in- law. There is the addition of a passel of “rotten boys” who are a delight. I think you will be surprised at Daniel’s true desire. No, no, that’s all the hints I will give you. Now go, buy, so you can start reading this delight as soon as it is available.
