    Loved this book.

    I've read all the Lords of series so far, and this is by far the best. Heath is a hero I can take to my heart, while I identified with Nora, a young lady put in an impossible situation, torn between the man she loves and what she knows is right, and duty and loyalty to her family. I didn't want the book to end. It does lose a star because of historical inaccuracies, but then, I am a stickler for that kind of thing. If you can overcome those niggles, this is a five star book.

    Delightful! Great historical romance!

    Delightfully entertaining read! Another wonderful spin on the Cinderella trope, with a kind and entreprising heroine (after a little nudge from her brother) and a rather Darcyesque hero, with the little blemishes that go with that: "As a child...I was given good principles, but left to follow them in pride and conceit." Unlike Mr. Darcy, Heath Grenville, is quite immediately struck by Nora's handsome face and fun personality, and he has an open & friendly manner. However, like Mr. Darcy he is a bit too certain about what is right and wrong, leaving him somewhat too proud and with too good an opinion of the importance of the haut ton and his role in it. Nora is a great character, coming accross as a little meek sometimes because of her humble nature & generous heart, but brave as well in her choice to continue with her caricatures, knowing full well what's at stake. I thought it was a nice change of pace to have a heroine with insecurities, both with regards to her rank and her learning disability (dyslexia). To stay in Austen-terminology, she is far more of a Jane than an Elizabeth, and it's nice to see a more atypical heroine secure her HEA. I like the Grenville siblings immensely, and I would have liked to have gotten more insight into their elusive father. Why is he so absent? What kind of relationship does he (still) have with his wife? How does he feel about his children? On to the next one!

    I absolutely devoured this book

    I absolutely devoured this book. Nora and Heath’s tale pulled me in and held me captive through the telling. This is one of those stories where everything seems to have several layers of meaning, or at least be hidden by a mask or two. Heath remains a bit of a cypher for the whole book. It’s easy to see the love and care he lavishes on his family, but he’s very fastidious about who he appears to be in public. And he holds fast to that dignity until the very end. In true Cinderella fashion, or perhaps it’s closer to country mouse and city mouse, Nora is pulled from rural obscurity to be companion to a wealthy cousin who’s recovering from a broken leg. A giggle-inducing encounter involving lemonade and an elbow brings Heath and Nora to one another’s attention and start us down a path filled with secrets and silliness. The angst and anguish of Nora’s predicament as she attempts to protect her secrets while becoming more and more enamoured with Heath was almost a physical pain to me – it hurt my heart. My one concern is that the ending wraps up very quickly. I’m in awe of how mature and enlightened both characters are when we get to THE moment, but it felt just a little bit too easy to me. I can’t wait to get my hands on Gideon’s book. I received a complimentary advanced copy of this book.

    Fascinating love story!

    A man who's known for keeping secrets falls for the woman who has the biggest secret of all! Heath is known for keeping society's secrets, so he has been hired to discover the identity of the political satirist who is mocking London's elite. Meanwhile, he's attracted to a beautiful companion, despite the class differences that make them wholly unsuitable for each other. Nora will do anything to keep food on the table for her impoverished family, including working as a paid companion for a distant relative. And including selling her clever drawings, anonymously of course, drawings that force the lords and ladies of London to look at themselves from a completely different perspective. What follows is a delightful romance as both Heath and Nora have several obstacles to overcome on their way to a satisfying HEA. I enjoyed the developing relationship between Nora and Lady Roundtree, especially the subtle ways that the baroness found to bring Heath and Nora together. I especially enjoyed the way the final resolution scene was written with honesty and openness, acknowledging all the truths while determined to find a way to move past it all. It was brilliantly and beautifully written. I voluntarily reviewed an ARC of this book.

    Historical Romance

    Heath Grenville will one day be a Baron so his image and honor are highly prized and ingrained into him. With such personally held high standards he has equally high expectations for the woman he will marry – a woman unmet but expected to be proposed to within the year. When he meets Miss Eleanor Winfield he is immediately intrigued but…there are reasons that keep him from becoming engaged in pursuit…at least for a while. This is a love story that deals with the wealth vs poverty, what one is willing to do for family, perceptions and misperceptions and ultimately one of love and the fact that it is not always easy but definitely worth working for. I love this author and enjoyed this book immensely. I am eager to read the next book in the series and wonder, as it will be the last in the series, if there will be more books to deal with Eleanor’s younger brother and Heath’s unwed sister…the one that is not assigned a book yet. At times I found Heath to be a bit unbending and unwilling to see both sides of a situation. I admired Eleanor’s strength and willingness to care for her family even when it might impinge on her own wellbeing. AND I liked the way the two managed to work through their issues to find a HEA together. Thank you to the author for the ARC – This is my honest review. 4 Stars
