SynopsisDavid, 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.

Review:  I truly love a Grace Burrowes historical romance. They are filled with passion, romance, intrigue, strong characters, great conflict and wonderful plot lines. This one didn’t disappoint. David, who we met in Gareth, is the owner of a brothel and is tired of running it. He meets Letty, the ex-mistress of the deceased Amery (who we met, sort of, in Andrew. He offers her a job as Madame and their relationship is off and running. He is drawn to her mix of innocence, quiet strength, and courage. She is drawn to his calm and mannered way of dealing with her. He isn’t rude or pushy or vulgar. They are attracted to each other, but he lets her make the first move after laying down his cards that he did desire her and did want to sleep with her. As their relationship progresses, he comes to realize that she has secrets and they both confess their love for each other, but she turns him down twice when he proposes to her. The inevitable happens and they emotionally part ways; she to protect him, he because he wants her to have her independence from the life of a mistress. The truth comes out and they come back together to solve the drama and have their happy ending. I loved it and I loved his character a lot.
