Review: David- Lord of Honor (The Lonely Lords) by Grace Burrowes

David, Viscount Fairly, has imperiled his honor...
Letty Banks is a reluctant courtesan, keeping a terrible secret that brought her, a vicar's daughter, to a life of vice. While becoming madam of Viscount Fairly's high-class brothel is an absolute financial necessity, Letty refuses to become David's mistress-though their attraction becomes harder to resist the more she learns about the man...
Perhaps a fallen woman can redeem it.
David is smitten not only with Letty's beauty, but also with her calm, her kindness, her quiet. David is determined to put respectability back in her grasp, even if that means uncovering the secrets Letty works so hard to keep hidden-secrets that could take her away from him forever...
Award-winning New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Grace Burrowes's extraordinary writing will immerse you in a Regency world unlike any you've experienced.

Really, a brothel owner as a dashing leading man? I simply had to read it to see how this could possibly work out. I believe David Worthington is the most admirable hero I have ever come across. He is an enigma yet I loved discovering each new facet of his personality and no simple woman would be a suitable match for this steadfast gentleman. Letty Banks is as complex as she is beautiful and she was just as fascinating to read about as the title character. These two are perfectly suited for one another and it was wonderful to see them dealing with their attraction. Grace Burrowes is one of my must-read authors and I will say she never disappoints. I love her strong heroines and her exceptional plots. Her stories whisk me away to a place long ago and far away and let me believe in fairytales. The descriptions are detailed and delightful and the people personable and entertaining.
