Darius: Lord of Pleasures - Grace Burrowes Published on drey's library: http://www.dreyslibrary.com/2013/04/26/review-darius-by-grace-burrowes/Darius Lindsey is an honorable man, though you wouldn’t have guessed it by his late-night activities. However, when handed lemons, one should try to make lemonade… Especially when a sister’s future is in peril. But even this jaded man can hardly believe it when approached by Lord Longstreet with a proposition.William Longstreet is a complicated man – and at his age, one is allowed his indulgences, especially when one is this wise and forward-looking. Even so, his wife – the lovely Lady Vivian – doesn’t easily come to terms with what he’s asking. But in the end both Darius and Vivian acquiesce, because neither has many options otherwise.And so begins a beautiful friendship. Not right away, of course, because these two have to get to know each other first. But they get there eventually, and find out there’s a lot more they could have – if only they’re brave enough to reach out and grab it.If you’ve read Grace Burrowes, I don’t have to tell you about the sizzling chemistry between our hero and heroine – that’s a Burrowes hallmark. I also don’t have to tell you about the sweet romance that balances out that chemistry, the wonderfully well-drawn characters, and the plot and story that ties all the elements together with a nice, shiny, pretty bow.If you love regency romance, you must read Burrowes. Her stories are a fabulous escape, with lovely heroines and awesome heroes. And lucky you, there’s a whole collection of them to pick up. drey’s rating: Excellent!
