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.
This is the third book in the Loneley Lords series by Grace Burrowes.
I am not sure what prompted me to buy this book. I am not really a Regency romance reader. But this story really stuck with me. Ethan is this aloof guy who had an awful wife and two great kids. Now that she’s dead, he has to take more of an interest in his children. But he isn’t really prompted to do anything until a lovely governess opens his eyes to what he was missing in his life.
I love how it all unfolded. This is the first book I have read in this series. It is easy to read as a standalone. This felt more like a normal romance but with some Regency flair. Their wording or meaning wasn’t hard to understand which is what I thought might trip me up in a book like this. It felt really natural.
It was a proper book and yes, there is sex in it but it isn’t overdone or too much. Just a taste and that taste is wonderful. I am sure I will try and read other books in this series too. Loved the setting.
If you are looking for a good Regency romance book, definitely check this one out.
I received this as an ARC (Advanced Reader Copy) in return for an honest review. I thank NetGalley, the publisher and the author for allowing me to read this title.
