I have enjoyed this book! Loved the details like his two colored eyes and the cats. And i was expecting a twist but was not expecting this one!

I've read ALL of this author's books. (I'm usually at my local B&N on the day they're released, purchasing my copy) I had a VERY difficult time getting a print copy of this book. (It took me 3 weeks, 2 states and 7 stores to get 1 copy!) It was, however, well worth the trouble. I love the lead character, David. He's had a secondary role in a few of the earlier books. I first remember meeting him when he gave Valentine Windham the bad news about his hands. David has a caring heart, and a deep love for friends and family. I like the interaction with Douglas (another of my favorite secondary characters from the original Windham trilogy who earned his own book). One of the greatest joys of Ms. Burrowes books is that you get to stay in touch with characters you've come to care about from previous writings. I look forward to finding out what will happen to Lettie's brother Daniel. (There's a hero in dire need of a HEA.)

This was a good read. The story held my attention and I was not disappointed by the ending. I found the writing style interesting, and the storyline captivating! The heroine was a beauty who had a warm heart, which is why she is where she is. When she loves there is nothing she will not do for their hsppiness, even if she sacrifices her own joy! I think you'll enjoy reading this story!

I have read all the books in Grace Burrowes series and thoroughly enjoyed all of them except this one. The first half of the book dragged and was very predictable. The characters became more interesting in the last half of the book.

David Worthington, Fourth Viscount Fairly has had a hard life. It is probably the main reason that he has so many talents including a wonderful bedside manor. He is a physician but doesn't really practice although those that know his skill bemoan the fact that he doesn't practice. He is also the owner of a brothel which he inherited. He would sell it but he worries about what will happen to the employees that work there. He was asked by one of his male employees to look in on Mrs. Letitia Banks. She doesn't look well and has been selling off her possessions. David had met Mrs. Letitia Banks a few years back, she was his brother-in-law's mistress. The man has since died leaving David's youngest sister a widow. And it would seem, Letitia short on funds. The characters are very likable and the story line keeps you reading well past bed time! Its a love story that keeps you rooting for the good guy! Another winner for Grace Burrowes. This is one of her best....so far!

DAVID: LORD OF HONOR by Grace Burrowes is wonderful Regency Historical Romance. # 9 in “The Lonely Lords” series, but can be read as a stand alone. DAVID: LORD OF HONOR is David, Viscount Fairly and a courtesan, Letty Banks’ story. Fast paced with Ms. Burrowes usual aplomb for Regency Romance. A fallen woman and a Bawdy House owner, both with secrets, and passion find love and acceptance. You will see several of the characters from previous Lonely Lords re-appear in DAVID. Ms. Burrowes writes with such passion and drama, you can not help but love her characters and storylines. Well done! Received for an honest review.

Very talented writer with a great turn of phrase. However, I couldn't seem to get past the heaviness that pervaded the entire book. The female lead was constantly described as too thin, circles under eyes, melancholy. I kept wondering what everyone saw in her. Think that her character could have been integrated into the brothel relationships to give her more depth. She never really fit in with what was going on there. Again, great writing style, just a plot that had too much sadness and not enough lighthearted love.

I truly love a Grace Burrowes historical romance. They are filled with passion, romance, intrigue, strong characters, great conflict and wonderful plot lines. This one didn't disappoint. David, who we met in Gareth, is the owner of a brothel and is tired of running it. He meets Letty, the ex-mistress of the deceased Amery (who we met, sort of, in Andrew. He offers her a job as Madame and their relationship is off and running. He is drawn to her mix of innocence, quiet strength, and courage. She is drawn to his calm and mannered way of dealing with her. He isn't rude or pushy or vulgar. They are attracted to each other, but he lets her make the first move after laying down his cards that he did desire her and did want to sleep with her. As their relationship progresses, he comes to realize that she has secrets and they both confess their love for each other, but she turns him down twice when he proposes to her. The inevitable happens and they emotionally part ways; she to protect him, he because he wants her to have her independence from the life of a mistress. The truth comes out and they come back together to solve the drama and have their happy ending. I loved it and I loved his character a lot.

David: Lord Of Honor by Grace Burrowes is my favorite book so far this month, and I read a lot of books. David: Lord Of Honor is well written, the characters are delightful and there is action, drama and sizzle to round out the book into a story I couldn't put down. David and Letty's story was a pleasure to read and I look forward to reading more from Grace Burrowes in the future. David: Lord Of Honor is book 9 in The Lonely Lords series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.

I have read all of Grace Burrowes books and novellas. She is so talented in her writing, drawing the reader into her compelling stories with her deft prose in such a way that you become invested in her characters, feeling the gamut of emotions they experience. I think she is so different from her contemporaries who seem to be churning out smut just to meet deadlines. Each of her works is well-crafted and historically acurate. I look forward to every new release, knowing I will spend my time being thoroughly entertained as well as gaining insight into love and relationships. Bravo!

This book dragged on and on and on. The first part of the book was pretty good i thought. But then the story started to drag. And i almost didnt finish it. But i made it through to the end. I didnt read any of the other books that came before this book and i wont be reading any that come after it.
