A luscious read perfect for Christmas or even memories of Christmas. Everywhere you turn, there are family members paired off into happy marriages who can’t keep their hands off each other. Introduce limping, injured war hero Sir Joseph Carrington, who has less experience with a doting full family, except for that bevy of secret children kept in Surrey. Lady Windham, aka Louisa, has a juicy secret of her own, and we’re kept guessing how things will sort themselves out. Happily, the couple find each other and Louisa discards less worthy suitors early enough in the novel that we can enjoy rollicking good times they have together. A family tree at the outset names other characters with their own novels, and I look forward to reading more from this author.

This is my favorite of the series (so far). I found Joseph and Louisa to be well-matched - too often the hero is so "perfect" and the heroine a bit of a twit in comparison, but in this book they are both intelligent, loving, affectionate, honest people. There's a conflict, of course, but it's ultimately a bit more "Gift of the Magi" than big, huge, dramatic gestures. I found their romance mature and refreshing.

9/4 - This was pretty good; not great, not worth returning to the library unread. Louisa and Joseph's affection for eachother wasn't very clear, possibly restricted by the fact that they called eachother Husband and Wife more often than they used eachother's names (how is that romantic?) or any other term of endearment. According to the series it's included in it's the 3rd in The Duke's Daughters series, but if you look at the family tree inside it shows that it's the 6th book to do with the Morelands, starting 30 years back with the original Duke and Duchess. Whether it's 3rd in an offshoot series or 6th overall, it's clear that it's best if you read the preceeding books first. There were a number of pieces of family history that weren't described very well, Burrowes obviously assuming all the readers would have read all the previous books first. To read books in series order is my usual choice, but my library website often doesn't give any details on whether a book is part of a series or not. I've got to start researching the books I intend to borrow, here, so this confusion doesn't keep happening.

“‘Has anybody figured out what we’re going to say to Louisa and Sir Joseph when this cavalcade shows up on their doorstep?’ / ‘We’ll start with Bloodshed Solves Nothing,’ Westhaven informed him, ‘and go on to Not In Front of the Children, and finish with an observation that A Cup of Tea Wouldn’t Go Amiss.’” (p. 337)

“Lousa Windham did not need any reminders about how to kiss a man. She gently took possession of Joseph’s mouth, plundered his wits, and stole off with his best intentions. His arms came around her, anchoring her tightly against his body. Following in the path of sincere gentlemanly attentions, lust galloped up on a big, fast horse flattening his restraint.” (p. 144; note: "any" and "flattening" italicized in original)

“Dancing with a woman who enjoyed the waltz this much gave a man some bodily confidence. He brought her closer, wonderfully closer, and realized what gave him such joy was not simply the physical pleasure of holding her but the warmth in his heart generated by her trust. / She was dancing with a lame soldier, with a pig farmer, and enjoying it.” (p. 95)
