Description

Douglas Allen needs a home for his aching heart

Douglas Allen, Viscount Amery, hates having arrived to his title without knowing how to manage his properties. Guinevere Hollister is a distant family connection raising her daughter in rural obscurity while stewarding the estate. Douglas reluctantly puts himself in Gwen's hands for lessons in land husbandry and discovers beneath her prickly exterior a woman of passion and honor. Yet despite the closeness they find, she will not marry him.

Guinevere Hollister needs a champion

When the powerful Duke of Moreland arranges an engagement between Gwen and his heir, Douglas knows the marriage is not what Gwen wants. In Douglas's eyes, Gwen deserves to make her own choices, and he will take on family, the meddling duke, and Gwen's own lonely, stubborn heart to ensure his lady's happiness.

Another unforgettable Regency romance from award-winning, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Grace Burrowes.

      • content: "DOUGLAS: Lord of Loneliness stands alone beautifully with a memorable love story that is laced with lots of family love and meddling along with humor, and mores of their time in history. Best of all the reader gets the satisfaction of seeing emotionally wounded characters heal and flourish when true love moves in to stay.

        Grace Burrowes, with her exquisite style of writing, has given the reader another superb love story set in one of the most interesting times in English history. Captivating!"

      • source: Eyes.2C Reviews
      • content: "This is a truly romantic tale, beautifully told and refreshingly honest.
        Douglas makes a true and unsuspecting knight, who thankfully dons his shining armour without hesitation. Guinevere is a very hurting Lady in Distress, never expecting a knight, and I cheered when that worthy captured her heart."

      • content: " I enjoyed seeing what Ms. Burrowes does when she has children in a book. Gwen loves her daughter so much, and because of what happened around the conception of said daughter, has locked herself away from any hope of marrying, feeling herself unworthy and a disgrace to family/high society."
      • premium: False
      • source: 3 Chicks After Dark
      • content: "One thing I love most about Grace Burrowes is how she manages to connect her many historical series. Douglas contains one of those links ? you'll be surprised to see who shows up! The Lonely Lords series links to the Windham/Duke's Daughters/Duke's Obsession series. Such a magnificent, tangled web she weaves!"
      • premium: False
      • source: First Page to Last
      • content: " I'm reminded of the theme of Ms. Burrowes books, at least in my opinion, is that FAMILY IS FIRST AND FOREMOST. I do love how the characters hold family dear and they are THERE for them. No matter what. It's a joy to read.

        Once again, a lovely way to spend a snowy afternoon! Or even a lovely spring day...depending upon when you are reading my review.
