Rated 5 out of 5 by from sweet, romantic, & heartfelt I am totally, utterly and completely in love with the Knightly brothers. Burrowes returns to their lives in this second instalment of her Sweetest Kisses series with a flair. She held me captive throughout with her approachable characters and heartfelt story. This novel was so much more than simply a romance. A variety of different aspects of life make their way into the story, making it all the more real and complete. The author`s intricate and picturesque descriptions complete the package, bringing everything to light in a big way. This sweetly romantic tale not only affected me while reading it, it`s still the first thing on my mind now. Burrowes is holding my heart captive. James may just be the most complex hero I’ve met in a long, long while. There are so many different facets to who he is. Burrowes develops each in such a way that readers get to know him in a very intimate manner. I found my heart going out to him, even when I was laughing at his latest antics. Paired with Vera, a caring yet confused heroine, I wanted to be part of this couple, even considering what they went through to get to where they were together. James’ conflicts within himself and Vera’s external ones really allow you to see the characters and their relationships in a new light. Surrounded by a loveable and well developed supporting cast readers become part of a loving family in the most inviting of ways. And one cannot discount the children in this novel. They are just as important to the tale as their grown up counterparts, and really allow this novel to stand out on it`s own. This novel was fantastic. I couldn`t put it down. Burrowes` mellow tone combined with her vibrant storytelling kept me riveted throughout. I would highly recommend it (and the rest of the series) to anyone who enjoys a good romance. Please note that I received a complimentary copy of this work in exchange for an honest review.
