    A heartwarming story

    This is a truly heartwarming and emotional story from beginning to end! It’s a unique story because they are already married and in love, but going through such a rough time that tests them. I loved that this is going on at the same time as the first book so you know what was going on with Poppy at the house party. It’s heartbreaking to see them both struggle in different ways and be torn apart. The scene where Gabriel remembered everything that happened with his mother and everything after was so raw with emotion. I absolutely loved the moment they made up because their love was so strong and it was such a powerful moment for many reasons. Poppy wants to be a mother so badly, but after three years she’s trying to come to terms with it won’t happen the way she dreamed. She so desperately wants a baby, but can’t help but try to help Dinah in any way possible. I loved her fire from the start and when she laid into her brother. Gabriel thought he found a way to give Poppy her dream and banish his fears, but it only brought them up in full force. He will break your heart as he talks about his fear. I loved how much he cared about helping others and when he realized he couldn’t let fear control him. The ending was absolutely perfect and I can’t wait to read her brother’s story and find out what happened to him. Copy provided for an honest and voluntary review

    Historical Holiday Romance

    The Gift of the Marquess by Darcy Burke Love is All Around #2 Three siblings will have their story told in this trilogy. First came Bianca and Ash and last will be Calder and Felicity but book two is the story of Poppy and Gabriel and what a story it is. This couple is already married, loves deeply and after three years of marriage is still childless. Poppy is grim and sad and devastated that she may never have children while her husband, who has lost more than one due to childbirth, is secretly happy his wife has not gotten pregnant because he fears he might lose her, too. The couple is interesting. They are both giving charitable people who do what they can for the village. They do go through a bit of a rough patch due to the baby situation but manage to work through their issues to end up very happy at the end. Both Bianca and Poppy are rather upset with their brother and how much he has changed in the past ten years and I do believe we will find why he changed in book three and perhaps he, too, will be able to return to the man he used to be and find his happily ever after, too. This is definitely a holiday trilogy as it takes place around Christmas and there will be a finale Christmas party in the final book. Did I enjoy this story? Yes Will I read more by this author? Without a doubt 4-5 Stars

    Wonderful

    "A dream rooted in his mind...A dream he dared not hope for, and yet couldn't keep from wanting." That was Gabriel's thought as he realized the fact that the woman did not want her baby.... Gabriel had been helping out at Hartwell House that took in woman and children when they had nowhere else to go. His wife Poppy came whenever she could but realized she had not been herself lately. A truly lovely story about a couple so in love everything seemed perfect except Poppy desperately wanted a child and after three years there had not been one. Gabriel was releaved because he was scared of losing her to childbirth. But a thought had come into his head when he saw the new girl who was pregnant and did not want her child. Strong emotions, fears, doubts and love all feel this wonderful story that Darcy Burke has written to perfection. Emotions that so many women have felt through time when faced with trying to conceive and it feeling hopeless. A true joy filled my heart toward the end and I cannot wait to read the next in this series...

    sweet and tender love

    Poppy always dreamed of someday being a mother but after her three years of marriage to Gabriel she still can't conceive and this makes her really sad and makes both of them hold back in their marriage because it also happens that Gabriel is afraid of something happening to her if she one day became pregnant, but the love they have for each other makes them work through their issues and start being honest with each other. You could see how much they loved each other and watching them realizing their dreams was joyful to watch!! Sweet story.
