Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from The Memoirs of the Conquistador I was introduced to this book by way of my reading on the Christero War. The short chapters and the immediacy of a first hand account makes this very readable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gayle and Anna had me swooning It has been a while since a historical romance has captured me as thoroughly as The Heir. Too many times authors rush to consummate the relationship thinking that will prove that the characters are destined to be happily ever after but with The Heir you can actually see it happening one small intimacy at a time. There is no rush to the finish line just a slow build, a culmination of touches and thoughtful gestures between Gayle and Anna that makes you remember some of the reasons you may have fallen in love yourself a time or two. It is not always the grand gestures that win the fair maiden and Burrowes clearly shows us that with a book that I know I will reread again and again.
