ARC Review of Tremaine's True Love by Grace Burrowes

I have been reading Historical Romance for 30 years and believe it or not this is the first book I have read by Grace Burrowes.  Where have I been?  I absolutely adore her writing.  Her style is totally unique in that I felt like I knew the characters intimately, their emotions, their thoughts and even though there are challenges to them and others in the book there is no aggravating hemming and hawing, and only one misunderstanding of emotions and motive, which is the basis for the obstacle in their love story.  Nita and Tremaine are perfect together, they do have a fundamental difference of opinion to overcome in their story, but you know that they will work it out.  They are passionate, stubborn, and realistic.  I was never frustrated with the characters or the story while reading this book. There were great secondary characters that had stories that need to be told and cannot wait to read them.  If I had to compare Grace's writing to someone you might have read before it would be Mary Balogh.  I had the same satisfying feeling reading Grace's book as I have when reading Mary Balogh.

ARC Review of Lady Beresford's Lover by Ella Quinn

Vivian, Lady Beresford is newly widowed and is eager to leave the home that brought her only misery and go to London and start to enjoy her life again.  Her dead husband abused her mentally and physically, telling her that he could not stand the sight of her and was in love with his mistress and wanted nothing to do with her.  Vivian travels to London with her friend Silvia, who has her own love story in this book.  

Rupert, Earl of Stanstead is looking for love.  His cousin, his parents, his friends all have found happiness in their marriages.  He is young, only 22 years old, but inherited his title young and a responsible land owner, sits in the House of Lords and has the respect of his fellow peers.  He meets Vivian and knows almost instantly that she is the one for him.  Now he just has to convince her.  Vivian has no self confidence, she is afraid to make her self vulnerable to another man and her ex husband told her she was ugly and deformed.  She decides before she settles down in a home by herself in the country that she is going to have an affair with Rupert, thinking that is all she is entitled too.  Rupert has other plans.  

Ella Quinn knows how to write a story that will keep you reading long into the night.  Her characters are fascinating, funny, sweet and the love story is beautifully written with sensual scenes that are riveting.  I loved this book and enjoy Ella's writing very much.
