Kurzbeschreibung

David, Viscount Fairly, has imperiled his honor...

Letty Banks is a reluctant courtesan, keeping a terrible secret that brought her, a vicar's daughter, to a life of vice. While becoming madam of Viscount Fairly's high-class brothel is an absolute financial necessity, Letty refuses to become David's mistress-though their attraction becomes harder to resist the more she learns about the man...

Perhaps a fallen woman can redeem it.

David is smitten not only with Letty's beauty, but also with her calm, her kindness, her quiet. David is determined to put respectability back in her grasp, even if that means uncovering the secrets Letty works so hard to keep hidden-secrets that could take her away from him forever...

Award-winning New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Grace Burrowes's extraordinary writing will immerse you in a Regency world unlike any you've experienced.

HASH(0x9d11bc24) von 5 Sternen An Honorable Lonely Lord to Love 4. März 2014
Von Kathie @First Page to the Last Book Reviews - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I have loved each and every Lonely Lord that Ms. Burrowes has written for us. Darius used to be my favorite. But now he's been taken down one little notch and David has stolen my heart.

David has a blue eye and a green one. He's a viscount and a physician by training. But he doesn't practice anymore after a very sad turn of events. He owns a brothel and he needs someone to run it, a madam, in fact. The women at the establishment are making him crazy.

His man of business, Jennings, asks him to look in on Letty Banks. She was the mistress of Douglas, Viscount Amery's brother. Things are not looking well for the courtesan and David's protective instincts rise to the occasion. It doesn't hurt that Ms. Banks is a tempting, shy young woman. Somehow the shyness and title "courtesan" intrigue him. He must get to know her better, and since she needs income, why not let her run the brothel?

Why not, indeed.

Once again, this lonely lord is damaged, just a bit. And Letty, too. This is a theme that is reoccurring in Ms. Burrowes books. But aren't we all just a tad bit damaged? What makes this work is seeing how they tend to each other. How they help each other heal. And there I go again, falling in love with this gorgeous, sensitive man with the beautiful eyes.

There is a scene so full of angst that I just had tears streaming down my face. Only way I can read that sort of thing is that I know that Ms. Burrowes is going to make things right with her characters. And she does. David put his analytical mind to work, with some pushing from Lord Valentine (I love him, too!) and he figured things out. Thank goodness!

Several of the Lords and their Ladies from the earlier books make their appearance here. It's always so nice to see them again.

I have a small heartache, the author's notes at the end state that this is the last Lonely Lords book! I did mention to her that it hurts to hear such a thing. But Ms. Burrowes assures me that there will be more of her tortured heroes to come. Maybe even Daniel and Mr. Jennings! Something to look forward to, for sure.

So, once again I've fallen in love with a Lonely Lord.
Maybe you will, too.

HASH(0x9d3de018) von 5 Sternen Fairly's Book Was Only Fair 2. April 2014
Von Judge Tabor - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I was disappointed in this book on so many levels. David Fairly's character has always been an intriguing character for me in the other Burrowes' books. Part of my interest had to do with the fact that he is a peer, physician, seemingly marvelous friend and all around nice guy and then those remarkable eyes - one blue and one green.

What I liked: I was pleased that this book didn't revolve around the activities of the brothel that he inherited even though the heroine, Letticia (Letty) Banks, is ultimately hired to be the madame at the brothel. Letty, whose past is revealed over the course of the book, was formerly mostly known as the mistress of David's deceased brother-in-law, Herbert. When David realizes that Letty is in dire straits, he tries to figure out a way that would assist Letty financially - thus, he offers her the job as madame of the brothel he inherited.

Letty is so desperate for money, she agrees to take the job even though she knows very little about the business. As we eventually learn about how and why she came to be in the position she found herself in, it is difficult to appreciate many of David's maneuvers as they relate to Letty. In point of fact, Lord Valentine Windham, Lord Douglas Amery and even Westhaven himself all caution David about his plans/treatment/maneuvering of Letty. David, however, wants her as his mistress and finds a way to make it happen even though technically, she isn't available to him except as a "lover" and only at the place and time of her choosing.

One common issue I have with many of Ms. Burrowes' books is that she gives us these intriguing Main Guys but their past is super sketchy. Why did David leave home and travel all those years at sea? Why did he not realize his two young stepsisters needed him to provide for them? How does he manage to have properties on three continents and when the book mentions the awful, terrible, things he has seen and done, what would these things be? I am left with way too many questions about the how and why of some of these characters in her books and especially in the case of David.

*Spoilers* Also, when David Fairly is mentioned in some of the previous books, one gets the opinion that he is a very sweet, kind fellow and yet his sensitivity when it came to Letty was just lacking. He kept her in the same house that she had mistressed in for "Herbert" and she couldn't bear to even be in the room where she and Herbert had been together. What??? Then, even after David was over the moon for her and asked her to marry him and she took a knife for him, that is the house he fixed up for her to live in??? Also, a couple of instances when she is asleep, he uses sexual accoutrements from the brothel on her even though she is somewhat "gun shy" due to her past experiences. And, in one of those occasions, she didn't appear to enjoy the experience. That just doesn't sound like the "fair" Fairly.

Last - I hate these books when the H/h, though both professing to be head over heels in love, just give up on one another without any explanation of "why" or demanding the reasons "why" from the one who won't say "why" and this garbage typically goes on until the very end of the book. Ugh!!

Last Comment: The unexpected bright spot in this book was Daniel, Letty's brother. I agree with another reviewer that it would be great if Daniel could have his own book.

HASH(0x9d58f4f8) von 5 Sternen David...a masterful Lonely Lords addition! 4. März 2014
Von eyes.2c - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
The opening has us sympathizing with David over his having inherited an elegant, expensive brothel. As we are told this should be every young gentleman's unbridled fantasy. David Worthington, fourth Viscount Fairly, bemoans the fact. Owning a brothel brings a myriad of problems.
David's interest in Mrs Letticia Banks is due to her having been the mistress of his deceased brother-in-law, Lord Amery.
David needs a Madame, Letticia needs employment. Certainly this looks like a way forward for both of them.
Of course, nothing is that simple. As David and Letty are thrown together the attraction between them surfaces. And of course Letty's road to her current state has a sympathetic back story.
Oh and yes, 'feet' feature once more in this masterful Lonely Lords addition. As David and Letty embark on a fuller relationship David reflects, 'he'd touched her feet before, and it seemed a safe--and biblically humble--place to start.' I love the imagery of this line.
Douglas Allen, the Viscount of Amery becomes one of my hero's in his discussion about women with David. No wonder he and David are friends. Two compassionate men, yet both so very different. I have enjoyed them both right from the first moment of meeting them.
His confidences to David about Letty reveal the thoughtful depths of the man. Douglas, adorable man, shocks David by suggesting that rather than bed Letty, he David, should marry her. Well that rather takes David aback!
I loved it when Douglas describes David as 'an odd duck...a saint by some standards, a lunatic by others.' This is such an apt comment about David.
Once more David's medical know come to the fore in relation to Douglas's wife Rose, her pregnancy and the impending birth. We learn more about David's previous life and marriage.
What a wonderful person he is and Letty matches him.
The emotions, the sensitivity of David, the sympatico of Letty make for some singularly sweet love scenes, that hum with the very essence of tender love, desire, understanding and appreciation.
So why does Letticia want to leave him? Therein is the mystery! A mystery right to the end.
I do so love this family, all are as mismatched and charismatic as David's eyes, and I love that they rally in support of each other and stand shoulder to shoulder!

HASH(0x9d58f1ec) von 5 Sternen Grace, please. Can't you find some more Windhams out there? 16. Februar 2015
Von MHTex - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verifizierter Kauf
I want to add my review only to say I'd rate this entire series a '10' if I could. What I have always loved about a well-done series is that various characters that show up in some capacity and importance in multiple books. I've read the series in order and come to love all of the heroes and heroines before their own book is read, and then loved them more when they show up again in each other's lives as they come to each other's aid. Ahhhh, Douglas. I haven't rated each book as I read them, because I'd be repeating my silly, gushing self. I love Grace's writing, the small details of dialog, unspoken thoughts just hovering at the surface after the actual dialog. The clever things you have to read slowly to appreciate. I'm not going to go into the plot which others have done better than I could. I think if you are on the fence about reading her, start with The Heir. I think this lonely lord has too much back story to be a starting off point. Her sensual rating should be noted as 'quite warm.' If that puts you off, keep moving.

I don't understand why others who, after clearly having read nearly the entire series, put in their reviews such unhappy complaints about things that show up in all of her books. Like the frequency of serving tea or food, or kitchen scenes. After reading two books you would know this is one of her devices (charming in my opinion) at setting a scene for all kinds of dialog. What can be more intimate besides sex in a bed, than a midnight raid on the deserted kitchen in a large normally heavily staffed house...or a small cottage. That's not the extent of scenes of intimacy. Carriages, stables, gardens, rides in the park come to mind. This is one continuous thread throughout her books, intimacy, not just sex. Honor, rescue, redemption, and restitution too. And love in every important way, of course. I myself, tend to eat several times a day. But even if I don't, I know my big and tall hubby (it seems quite a few of Burrowes's heroes are described as being quite large) will. And reading about the hero eating in most of her books charms and amuses me frequently.

Now that I have finished this grouping; Gareth, Andrew, Douglas and David, I am feeling a bit LOST myself. Like I felt when I finished the Windham books and novellas. Like sitting down and having a bloody perishing good cry. I'm a devoted fan, and cannot get enough.

HASH(0x9d58f54c) von 5 Sternen Disappointing Series of Books 21. April 2014
Von cardinalzz - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
I was looking for a new regency author and came across Grace Burrowes. I have attempted to read all of the books in the series but can't get through most of them - they are all the same. The characters language and actions just don't wash with the Regency Era. Their conversations are not realistic for that era - some are not realistic for modern times. And the love scenes go on for pages and pages - sometimes chapters. I wish she could spend that time developing the characters more fully and come up with a believable storyline. I thought maybe I wasn't reading them in the proper order and that was what had me so bored. I went back and tried to reread them in order of publication, but I am still at a loss as to why so many people like these novels. Her Windham trilogy was better - not great, but better. There are so many better authors out there. Don't waste your time on these books. It seems she is publishing all her books within the last couple of years and maybe rushed them for publication. Take your time and your writing will improve.
