Andrew Alexander will do anything to protect those he loves…


After a tragic yachting accident leaves him wracked with guilt and despair, Andrew Alexander becomes certain he doesn’t deserve to be around his own family, let alone the beautiful, forthright Astrid Worthington. He wanders for years, only allowing himself respite from his self-imposed exile when he thinks Astrid safely married. He returns home to find instead that the only woman he’s ever loved has been recently—and mysteriously—widowed.


ANDREW: LORD OF DESPAIR by Grace Burrowes is another exciting  Regency Historical Romance. #7 in the “Lonely Lords” series, but can be read as a stand alone. Although, Andrew’s brother, Gareth was in an earlier story,Andrew is guilt ridden with not only grief but with regrets from a tragic yachting accident that took five of his family members along with his brother Gareth’s fiancee. He is filled with guilt and despair. Than along comes…..Astrid, who is pregnant,widowed,and just may be in trouble.

Andrew, has sworn off marrying, he believes he would be a terrible husband and father. But Astrid has loved him from afar for years. Together, they just may heal each other. Astrid is in danger of losing her life as well as the life of her unborn child, someone is trying to eliminate her. While, Andrew can not stand by and watch her or her unborn child hurt, he will do what he has to to save her.

Fast paced and filled with intrigue, suspense, mystery, passion and finally Andrew learns the truth of the yachting accident that cost him and his family so much grief and gains forgiveness and healing. I thoroughly enjoy Ms.  Burrowes’ stories.  This is an intriguing series of Lonely Lords and their true loves. Each story is well written, with engaging,charming,flawed characters as well as suspenseful and intriguing storylines. Another hit by this author.
