" who him he's Nathan Satyr he is a son of Athena. He makes most of the strategies on the team most of them work to if people listen." " he is also a really good fighter with two swords that turn into a staff, you do not want to be on his bad side." I know this is alot to ask for but i believe you can make it happen THANK YOU. By far i love your stories they are well written.

    5 out of 5 for this reader folks!

    WOW ... just WOW!  Does Grace Burrowes know how to write a beautiful story with intriguing characters and story lines. Right from the get go I am completely captivated and drawn in. This review consists of the first three books of her new Historical Romance Lonely Lords Series, Darius, Nicholas and Ethan.  Our setting is early 1800's, England (be it city or country) and our story revolves around a gentleman who is lost is many ways and finds his lady (through the usual angst, drama, seduction and action).  Each book is interconnected and you should to read them in order.  As a matter of fact the first and second book run parallel to each other.

    Okay on with the reviews! :)

    REVIEW

    MY FAVE so far!  Ethan is so complex and multi layered, somewhat of a stick in the mud and his transformation throughout this story was so much fun to read!  

    Ethan (as revealed in book 2) is the bastard son of  the recently deceased Earl and half brother to Nicholas.  As young boys. these two were attached to hips.  The old earl had far fetched reasons, but he sent Ethan away and this of course strained all relationships.  Nicolas is desperate to be in his brother's life.  Ethan is a widower of a ill matched marriage, has two sons who have been raised by the estate staff and takes his pleasure in his ledgers and structured life.

    Alice Portman is a governess is disguise.  She is running from a past that is so horrid and scandalous she has even changed her name.  She agrees to take on the governess position for Ethans two sons.  She has terms however, and they  include Ethan being more of a father to his children.

    Bit by bit, these two develop the most honest friendship which turns to attraction.  They steal kisses, but both of their scandalous pasts seem to hold them back from true love.  Ethan transforms from a cold man to a loving father, wonderful friend, friendly neighbour.  Man I rooted for him though this entire book.  

    As with all books of this genre, pasts never remain in the past and the scandals and secrets come to surface.  The obstacles that need to avoided are great ... but these two make it look effortless.  


    OVERALL .. WONDERFUL SERIES so far!  I am looking forward to jumping into the next few!  Is you love this genre, a beautiful love story you need to check this series out!  Grace Burrowes delivers!

    HAPPY READING!

    ETHAN: LORD OF SCANDALS by Grace Burrowes is another exciting
    Regency Historical Romance set in England. Book #3 of the "Lonely Lords",but can be read as a stand alone. See,"Darius",and "Nicholas". Can a two wounded souls finally find peace and happiness? Follow Ethan Grey,estranged from his beloved siblings for years and Alice Portman,a governess and so much more, on a journey of healing,forgiveness,secrets,and love. While, Ethan has been widowed for a few years,with two adorable sons to raise,he is lonely,secluded,wounded deep in his soul,until,he meets the straight laced, no nonsense governess,Alice,who has deep wounds herself and a secret. An epic tale of two wounded souls finding love,peace,and happiness after so many years of solitary. Danger lurks in the shadows for both Ethan,Alice and Ethan's young sons.Ethan and Alice both find healing and forgiveness in each others arms. Passion sparks off the page as well as the struggles of two adults, whose lives where changed forever in their youth by the same careless,reckless,evil teenager who grew into an even worst adult. A must read for historical romance readers,who enjoy a plot with a few twist and turns as you cheer Ethan and Alice toward their HEA. Love this author,her stories are not only intriguing,fast paced,filled with passion but also have the human side that only a talented author could provide. Well Done! Received for an honest review from the publisher.

    Consistently Good Regency Romances (LVR)

    I've read every book released so far by this author. She does a great job with each book she produces. If you enjoy Jane Austen and Georgette Heyer, you will appreciate her work. I am not a fan of serial books, but reading this author has been worthwhile.

    I love Grace Burrowes┬┐ books and her latest book, Ethan, is no e

    I love Grace Burrowes’ books and her latest book, Ethan, is no exception. This is a story of two people carrying heavy burdens of guilt and who find in each other the key to their happiness. Ethan Grey is the illegitimate oldest son of the late Earl of Bellefonte. Due to a misunderstanding, his father sent him away to school when he was in his early teens. Ethan’s experience there was what nightmares are made from and he has kept himself from his family until recently out of shame and humiliation.
    Alice Portman is a gentleman’s daughter working as a governess. She too has had a traumatic experience in her early teens that has marked her emotionally and physically. She meets Ethan while caring for his two sons at a large house party. Seeing her connection with his sons, Ethan offers her a position when her present charge moves on due to her age. There is an attraction between the two even if she is not a fan of his parenting techniques. As time goes by they recognize that they share the belief that they are both damaged goods and a burden to their loved ones. This just strengthens the bonds growing between them.
    I liked the way that the history of the two protagonists is slowly played out through the book and how each character reacts to the others story. The absolute truth is revealed in a very emotional setting and leads to a short period of misunderstanding but they are able to work it out by communicating after prodding by their family members. Ethan is a flawed hero who assumes the worst and doesn’t always recognize the hurt his family feels when he closes himself off from them. Alice has a better relationship with her family but believes she can never go back because of the guilt she feels. Interestingly, the villain of the piece is known to both of them but they don’t find out until it is almost too late.
    This book is the third book in The Lonely Lords Series after Darius and Nicholas. There are at least six more books planned in this series and several of the characters make an appearance in this book. I am glad that I have these books to look forward to reading over the next several months.

    EATHAN is a week earl........EATHAN ?????

    This book is the third in the series 280 pages. With six more....the book was very slow and booring. Was scary to turn pages never nowing who was who. Way to many intro'd to quickly and not really give much info when intro-duced. Since I HAVE PURCHASED the whole series to date sure hope thing get better. At this time with only three books read no sure I can not recommed this book. D

    Review originally posted at Romancing the Book

    After reading the first few books in this series, I had really high hopes for this one. After all, Ethan was an important character in the last book. As a reader you discover that he’s a bastard and that his father sent him away when he was a little boy because he thought he had an inappropriate relationship with his best friend and brother Nick.

    The idea behind Ethan’s past kind of bothered me as a reader. We discover early on that something was done to him when he was away at school, something terrible. As a hero, he worked because he was tortured, I just felt kind of let down. I can’t really explain why?

    Alice was a great heroine, she was fiercely protective of Ethan’s boys and very sarcastic. I loved that about her. What I didn’t love? The fact that she agrees to have a sexual relationship with a guy who’s kids she’s teaching.  I know it’s historically accurate and I’ve read other historicals that use this same type of formula–I’ve never been a huge fan of it.

    The story felt very disjointed to me. I’m probably being more harsh than if I would have just read it as a stand alone, but because I fell in love with the other books in this series, it is having to meet those high standards Ms. Burrowes has already set, and unfortunately this book falls very short.

    The plot is a little patchy. I mean I get the main idea but nothing really shocked me. There was no “WOW” moment for me while reading. I wasn’t caught up in their love story and all in all it just fell flat.

    I would recommend it as a good read. Again, I feel like I’m being unfair, but I KNOW Ms. Burrowes is insanely talented as she’s proved with this series, I just expect more from her now.

    The scars are all inside

    Ethan is emotionally wounded by parental misconceptions; still this man achieves an honorable maturity. The scars are deep and it takes strong bonds of an intelligent loving woman, Alice, to bring about healing. Good story!

    DOS to Ethan

    Heeeeeey Ethan! I like your story so far! And I feel fr you, when you're in the middle of tuping and hit the back button Dx anyways, I have a character for you: Name: Penelope Gemmond, goes by Pip. (Have the bullies call her Pipsqueak)••• Gender: female•••Age:12•••Godly parent: Artemis(my story, the daughter of silver, explaims the whole artemis-as-a-mom thing if you want to read it part one's at the lost hero)•••Appearance: she has eyes that are blue, but look almost purple- or shall I say one eye, as the left one was taken out in a fight with a drakon. A long scar runs across the eye. She wears her 'naturally' purple hair in a bun, with some silver streaks in it as well. Normally, some of her bangs fall down to cover her damaged eye. She always keeps a few black hair ties on her wrists. She wears a navy tank top, and shorts that sag a small bit. She never lets go of her grey army combat boots, as they're a gift from her dad, who died when the same drakon attacked her while she was with him. Her skin isn't pale, but she doesn't have much of a tan.••• Personality: Pip is a rather complicated person, having many different feelings cooped up inside of her. She often acts without thinking, and she can be very rude when she gets angry. She tries to make friends, but often fails. But the trait that stands out most is that she is a total tomboy at heart. She hates dresses, she absolutely despises makeup, and wishes she could assasinate all aphrodite kids.(well, most of them) Pip loves archery, however, she stinks wih a blade of any kind, unless they're throwing daggers, which she can do.•••Weapon of choice: A bow and arrows, made of silver and Olympian azure(Olympian azure is like celestial bronze, it squishes monsters, and it's blue). Please add Pip into your story!

    Ethan is definitely not for the faint of heart – I cried as Ethan learned to relate to his sons and move beyond his past.  It’s definitely a tear-jerker but one that is worth it.  Burrowes keeps giving readers heroes and heroines that tug at the heart and make you smile when they get their happy ending.  Full review available on BookTrib or RomanticReadsandSuch on Wordpress.

    I loved this book! It is a must read for fans of historical romances. My heart was breaking when I read about the past of the main characters. It pulls you in right from the start and keeps you hooked as the main characters try to pick up the pieces of their shattered lives.


    Ethan who is a father to two little boys, had a horrible experience when he was a teenager. His father sent him to a school and separated him from the only family he knew. As an adult he is trying to put his life back together and put his past behind him. He hires Alice as a governess for his young boys. She upsets his life, she basically forces him to take notice of his sons and to be a father to them. They both realize that they have been broken but are stronger for it.


    They come together and realize that their past demons is the same person. It is only by working together that they can over come their past and make a life with each other and make a home and a future with the boys and each other.
