  • a worthy and lovely addition to the True Gentlemen

    Oak Dorning, the aspiring artist of his large family, is commissioned by Verity Channing to review and restore a collection of artwork created by her late, and famous, husband. When many of the canvases prove to be hiding erotic, but beautiful, paintings, Verity must reevaluate her plan to sell the artwork. Along the way, Oak and Vera embark on a passionate, albeit temporary relationship. When Vera and Oak are unexpectedly threatened with social ruin, they coordinate their devastating attack on the unexpected villain. In the end they realize they are each others perfect soulmates. Ms. Burrowes has a special talent in that, not only are her characters beautifully created and fully fleshed out, but she creates “complications” which (we are certain), render an HEA virtually impossible. And yet, all her books end with a satisfying and memorable conclusion (which kept me reading until 2:00 am!). Ms. Burrowes writes beautiful descriptive prose, witty and realistic dialog, along with memorable and sympathetic characters. I highly recommend A Lady’s Dream Come True, as it is a worthy and lovely addition to the True Gentlemen series. I received an Advanced Reader Copy of this book from the publisher and am voluntarily reviewing it.

  • A delightful book that will leave you smiling

    This is Oak's book, and a wonderful read. Oak pays an artist's attention to the people around him and his surroundings. Descriptions of light - shining on jet beads, silk shimmering in the early evening light, sunlight turning the side of a blade of glass white, are sprinkled liberally throughout the book. I could 'see' the characters through Oak's eyes - the confused six year old boy, the girl on the cusp of womanhood, and the widow finding her own way - and herself. Oak is one of the younger siblings of the Dorning family of eight children. The family is not wealthy although their financial situations are improving, but in what matters - family, love, loyalty - they are rich beyond measure. Oak has put off his dream of becoming a portraitist (and eventually a member of the Royal Academy in London) in order to help his family. Now that his family's financial situation has improved, he is finally free to leave Dorset to follow his own dream. He was hired to restore paintings at the home of the widowed Vera Channing, whose husband, Dirk Channing, was himself a very famous portraitist. Oak wants to earn a little money before he strikes off for London and his dreams. Vera needs to sell some of Dirk's collected paintings to fund a generous dowry for his daughter, who is illegitimate. Two of my favorite characters in the book are the children, 14 year old Charlotte and 6 year old Alexander. However, in London there is an unknown, unsuspected villain whose 'help' is designed to lead to downfall. Without giving any more spoilers, I will say that the villain's comeuppance was a lot of fun to read. This is an excellent book with a complex plot and unforgettable characters old and new. I highly recommend it. I was delighted to receive an advance reading copy of this book from the author. These are my opinions of the book.
