Lady Eve’s Indiscretion

Grace Burrowes. Sourcebooks Casablanca, $7.99 mass market (416p) ISBN 978-1-4022-6380-4

After losing her virtue to a cad and her nerve to a dreadful riding accident, Lady Eve Windham, the duke of Moreland’s youngest daughter, decided to avoid marriage and horses. Seven years later, Lucas Denning, the marquis of Deene, needs an heir and a titled wife with a large dowry to support the legal battle for custody of his niece. Lady Eve is the perfect candidate, but she refuses his proposal until their attraction leads to being caught in flagrante. When Deene makes one last desperate play for custody, Eve must literally get back up on the horse to help. While less overtly erotic than other series entries, Burrowes’s seventh Windham family Regency (following Lady Louisa’s Christmas Knight) is just as captivating when she masterfully turns a simple kiss into an exceptional moment ripe with anticipation. Friendship blossoming into love grounds a solid story about healing from trauma and reclaiming life and spirit. Agent: Steve Axelrod, Axelrod Literary Agency. (Feb.)
