Now a USA Today bestseller 

He’ll never be free… 

Captured and tortured by the French, Christian Severn, Duke of Mercia, survives by vowing to take revenge on his tormentors. Before the duke can pursue his version of justice, Gillian, Countess of Greendale, reminds him that his small daughter has suffered much in his absence, and needs her papa desperately. 

Until he surrenders his heart…

Gilly endured her difficult marriage by avoiding confrontation and keeping peace at any cost. Christian’s devotion to his daughter and his kindness toward Gilly give her hope that she could enjoy a future with him, for surely he of all men shares her loathing for violence in any form. Little does Gilly know, the battle for Christian’s heart is only beginning.

From Publishers Weekly

May 19, 2014 – Prolific favorite Burrowes (The MacGregor’s Lady) launches a Regency trilogy that explores the wounds left behind at the end of a war. Christian Severn, Duke of Mercia, was captured and tortured by the French. After gaining his freedom, his drive for revenge is interrupted by Gillian, the recently widowed Countess of Greendale, who reminds him of his duty to his young daughter. Gillian joins the ducal household for various believable reasons, and Burrowes deftly builds the romantic tension amid lovely layers of domestic tranquility and honest conversations. Gillian has war wounds of her own, and the thoughtful exploration of her own captivity adds to the engrossing story. The unusual twists and turns along the way to the satisfying conclusion—and some insight into the earlier life of a favorite character from the Duke’s Obsession series—will leave readers eager to grab the sequels.

Customer Reviews

The Captive

What a wonderful way to spend a lazy afternoon that is filled with suspense and romance. A delightful time to put your imagination on cruse control, relax and enjoy. Am looking foreword to the next story.

Classic Grace

Refreshing and fast-paced. Like most of Grace's books this too is a fantastic read. This book reminded me very much of the story of Beauty and the Beast. If you're looking for a quick read with a few twists and turns thrown in, this is definitely the book for you. This is a historical romance done right.
