Douglas Allen needs a home for his aching heart
Douglas Allen, Viscount Amery, hates having arrived to his title without knowing how to manage his properties. Guinevere Hollister is a distant family connection raising her daughter in rural obscurity while stewarding the estate. Douglas reluctantly puts himself in Gwen’s hands for lessons in land husbandry and discovers beneath her prickly exterior a woman of passion and honor. Yet despite the closeness they find, she will not marry him.

Guinevere Hollister needs a champion
When the powerful Duke of Moreland arranges an engagement between Gwen and his heir, Douglas knows the marriage is not what Gwen wants. In Douglas’s eyes, Gwen deserves to make her own choices, and he will take on family, the meddling duke, and Gwen’s own lonely, stubborn heart to ensure his lady’s happiness.

    What a wonderful book! Just the right amount of every facet of the "perfect" historical romance. But the absolute best part was the relationship that develops between Douglas & Rose - beautiful!

    I'm a huge fan of the Windhams and excited to see that this story tied back to the series I'd so enjoyed. I read everything Grace publishes and I have yet to be disappointed. I love the feel of this book and how real Douglas and Gwen feel. I was actually very surprised at the portrayal of the Duke. It, for me felt like a stark contrast to his lovable meddling in the Windham series. However, as with Grace's books there is a very strong sense of family and togetherness. No one is truly alone.
