Meet the Author

Aside from her long-standing love affair with coffee, Heather's greatest joys in life are her relationship with her Savior, her family, and writing. Years ago, she decided it would be better to laugh than yell. Heather carries that theme over into her writing where she strives to create characters that experience both the highs and lows of life and, through it all, find a way to love God, embrace each day, and laugh out loud right along with her.

    Regency isn't a type of book I go in search to read. I went in s

    Regency isn't a type of book I go in search to read. I went in search of another Heather Gray novel and was so happy to find one that I didn't care what time period it was. It wasn't til after I read it that I realized what a truly gifted author she was to have three books in three different time periods. I don't have another author I read that steps out of her/his comfort zone. I'm so impressed!! 

    As far as His Saving Grace, this was a charming book, a novella maybe rather than a novel. I can't remember how many pages, but it wasn't super long. The characters were very well developed. And even for a non-regency reader, she made it quite readable. It was very fluid and the conflict between Thomas and Grace became clear and understandable as the book moved forward. The same holds true for Grace and her father.

    Grace is a strong female lead (something that isn't always present in the books on the market today) and she pulls it off by being true to her character all the way through the book. But Thomas has been deeply hurt by the woman he's been in contact with and has now ascribed those those characteristics to Grace as well. They are both wounded by the others perceived slights, can they make a marriage out of this when he forces Grace to the outer reaches of the country, away from everything she knows, even her family? And all the while Thomas is out fighting for his country. Now what will Grace do?

    Nice story line but too preachy....

    I would have given this book four stars but the author made this book too preachy. I really liked the heroine but the hero was a bit of an ass at the beginning of the book. Storyline unfolded smoothly and I enjoyed the HEA. There's nothing wrong for characters to have faith but no one likes to be hit over the head with it and this happened quite often.

    Grace and Thomas had been best friends since they were young. He

    Grace and Thomas had been best friends since they were young. He was someone she could always turn to. So when she asked her father if she could have a Season and he said some very hurtful things, it was Thomas who gave her comfort. But when Lady Appleton found them in an embrace there was nothing to do but get married of ruin her reputation. But could she make him understand that it was a complete accident and she hadn't contrived to trap him into marriage or would he forever believe her capable of such an act?

    Thomas had always loved Grace's spirit and outspokenness. Ever since childhood he had enjoyed spending time with her. Having inherited his father's estate and title as duke at a young age, women were constantly trying to trap him into marriage. When he was discovered comforting Grace and forced into marriage he assumed she had tricked him like so many others had tried and he was furious with her. But on their way to his castle in Northumberland, Thomas' conscience began plaguing him and he knew he had been treating Grace unfairly. Was his conscience also trying to tell him he loved her? Could they have a marriage in more than name only?

    This was a short novella at only 113 pages but a very delightful story. I loved Grace's sharp wit and unconventional ways but I truly wanted to shake Thomas in the beginning. I warmed up to him quickly, though. Thomas' valet and friend, Rupert, was a delight especially once he loosened up. The story was believable and the characters were endearing. The attention to detail was was great also. Bottom line, I thoroughly enjoyed this book and if you love novellas set in England you will love it. Definitely recommended.
