Description

A USA Today Bestseller!

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Grace Burrowes continues her True Gentlemen Regency series in this enchanting "accidentally in love" romance

It's a dog's life... 

Will Dorning, as an earl's spare, has accepted the thankless duty of managing his rambunctious younger siblings, though Will's only true companions are the dogs he's treasured since boyhood. When aristocratic London is plagued with a series of dognappings, Will's brothers are convinced that he's the only person who can save the stolen canines from an awful fate.

But the lady's choice... 

Shy, bookish Lady Susannah Haddonfield has no patience with loud, smelly beasts of any species, but must appear to like dogs so as not to offend her sister's only marital prospect. Susannah turns to Will, an acquaintance from her most awkward adolescent years, to teach her how to impersonate a dog fancier. Will has long admired Susannah, though he lacks the means to offer for her, and yet as they work together to rescue the purloined pets, it's loyal, dashing Will who steals Susannah's heart.

        Lady Susannah Haddonfield is determined that her younger sister Della has a successful Season and makes an acceptable match. All Will Dorning wants to do is raise dogs and keep his younger brothers in line. It should be simple. Yet when malicious rumors begin to circulate about Della, and dogs start disappearing from some of society's most exclusive homes, Susannah and Will need to take action, although getting to the bottom of these seemingly disparate problems is more dangerous than anyone imagined. VERDICT A brainy bluestocking with an aversion to dogs and an earl's second son who is passionate about them are thrown together in this intelligent, insightful, deliciously sensual escapade that is marked by an abundance of delightful canines, a villain most vile, and a memorable purple parasol. A refreshingly enjoyable read with the serious topic of bullying at its core. Burrowes (Daniel's True Love) lives in rural Maryland.

        Readers of Burrowes' True Gentlemen series (Daniel's True Desire, 2015) will be gratified to see Susannah Haddonfield, who once tried to convince herself to marry the wrong man, in her own story. Will Dorning is the second of many brothers in a financially struggling family. He makes money training dogs and has a gift for working with animals. Susannah is trying to help her sister, Della, land her own dog-owning beau. Will has liked Susannah for years, ever since they were new to society and he helped her deal with bullies. They begin a heady courtship that seems futile given his lack of prospects. As they are drawn into trying to solve the mysteries of dognappings from wealthy families, they begin to hope that the case will solidify their future. Burrowes manages to address such issues as pet abuse and bullying while spinning a delightful romance. Her theme of second chances is very appealing, and she continues to be a true standout among historical romance authors.(Reprinted with permission of Booklist, copyright 2016, American Library Association.)
