The Heir (Windham, #1) (Duke's Obsession,#1)

The Heir (Windham, #1) (Duke's Obsession,#1) - Grace Burrowes Very enjoyable historical read with a wonderful cast of characters, drawn in great detail. is a less stuffy regency read where the general domesticity of life is emphasized over the glittery sphere of the Ton. The only criticism I would levy against the story is the rather repulsively evil villains which in comparison to the richness of the other characters is slightly disappointing. Still they suited the story perfectly. At one point, I wanted to smack the two protags upside the back of the head, as did other characters in the book, but nonetheless found the resolution satisfyingly sweet. BTW, this book could leave you with a craving for lemonade and marzipan.
