Gayle Windham is heir to the Duke of Moreland, who is obsessed with seeing his son married off. To escape the pressure, Windham decides to spend the summer in London, where his new housekeeper immediately draws his interest.
Anna Seaton is a gently bred lady with a secret past and the two are soon drawn to each. The result is a lovely romance, which is both tender and starkly sensual. The backdrop is sultry London but that doesn't compare to the heat between this couple.
Burrowes' characters are unique and fully realized - especially Windham. Her descriptive writing engulfs you in London's overwhelming heat and I could almost taste the cold, sweet lemonade our hero is so fond of.
This read is well worth the time and Burrowes has just jumped to my must-read list.
I'll be marching right out to pick it up...or to download it onto my Kindle.
However, Burrowes' covers are SO gorgeous I might just want to buy the tree-book simply for the pleasure of gazing at it.
By the way...
