- Booklist Reviews : Booklist Reviews 2011 April #2
Devlin St. Just, the first-born, illegitimate son of a very powerful duke, fought against Napoléon and received the title Earl of Rosecraft. He has now taken charge of the estate and a young ragamuffin named Winnie. As the illegitimate offspring of the former earl, Winnie has had free reign of the estate, with only her cousin, Emmie Farnum, to watch her. Devlin sees Winnie much as he would one of the young soldiers under his command. Emmie sees Devlin as an invader, come to upset her simple life. She is an outcast who bakes delicious treats to make a living. Through their connection with Winnie, Devlin and Emmie form a bond that allows them to see beyond social divisions as they face personal demons. As she helps him overcome wartime trauma, Devlin hopes to persuade her to become a permanent part of his life. In this follow-up to The Heir (2010), Burrowes continues her winning streak with a delicious, sensual historical romance capturing the spirit of the time. Copyright 2011 Booklist Reviews.
