I’ve become a Grace Burrowes fan girl after reading the entire Windham series although one of the annoying things in those books was the author’s habit of tossing in new characters with little or no introduction But as I pointed out in my review of the series What I did not realize originally was that Grace Burrowes had already written something like twenty four unpublished novels before this one was published as her debut She’s created a whole world out there people and you’ll never understand who all the players are unless you read all of her books And even then you won’t know because there are on the way Namely the Lonely Lords series each one featuring a secondary character from the Windham series Darius Lindsey second son of the Earl of Wilton is one of those secondary characters in The Virtuoso Duke's Obsession #3 as Lord Valentine Windham’s friend who helps him restore the run down estate that Val won in a card game And how odd it is that these sons of an earl and a duke are such competent carpenters Well we’ll let that slide Darius is broke because his evil father has cut his allowance Why does Wilton treat his children so cruelly No idea Why does Darius’s sister Leah need his protection No idea Why is Leah tainted by scandal No idea But fear not you’ll get answers if you read the next book NicholasTo keep the wolf at bay Darius is a sort of man ho for two ladies with bizarre sexual tastes He refuses to engage in actual intercourse with them but allows them to enjoy their peccadilloes He hates them and himself but he’s desperate to keep up his modest country estate protect his sister and support an adorable boy who may or may not be his son Enter Lord William Longstreet an elderly highly respected politician married to a much younger lady He and his late wife had two sons but one died at Waterloo and the other in a duel Thus Longstreet has no heir and upon his death his estate will revert to the Crown leaving his wife virtually penniless After discreet investigation he has picked Darius as the man he wants to hire to impregnate his wife and he offers Darius a fortune to take on the jobVivian Longstreet is as Darius later puts it a “married spinster” She had been the hired companion to the late Lady Longstreet and after that lady’s death William married her to save her from falling under the dubious protection of her greedy stepfather She has reluctantly agreed to her husband’s plan but has no real expectation that it will work When she and Darius meet for the first time though they awkwardly enjoy one another’s company and agree to go forward with the planYou know where this is going Darius and Vivian spend a month at his estate uneasily at first but then passionately and she returns to her husband They don’t admit the love between them; they both know that they can never even acknowledge one another in public and Darius can never be a true father to the child that she is going to have I love the way the author gradually built up the relationship between Darius and Vivian We get to see that he is a truly good man despite his flaws and deeply protective of those he loves With Darius’s encouragement Vivian comes out of her cocoon and enjoys herself In addition to the increasingly passionate sex he buys her a new wardrobe and gets her out of her drab gowns and severe hairdo It’s a little bit like spending a month with a cross between George Clooney and Tim Gunn I want to go thereOkay I jest but actually I found this story sweet and charming and deeply affecting Their parting was truly touching I didn’t cry but I wanted to And then when Vivian returns to her husband he actually comforts her “It’s all right to be infatuated with the man probably better in fact” adding “Lindsey is comely he has a certain dash and he no doubt charmed you Some feelings for him were inevitable” What a sweet old birdBack in London Darius uses some of William’s money to set up a trust for his unborn child He decides to drop his two “clients” but they are not inclined to just let him go so they cause trouble Vivian’s stepfather and step daughter in law also cause trouble There's some excitement but Darius knows how to play down and dirty and gladly does so to protect Vivian's good name In the meantime Vivian is finding ways to keep “accidentally” running into Darius at various venues around town In public he treats her with cold politeness to avoid raising suspicions but Vivian is hurt nonetheless As Vivian’s pregnancy progresses Lord Longstreet’s health is deteriorating I think Lord Longstreet is a sort of secondary hero in this story He married Vivian to give her protection at a time when he still had two living heirs Although he’s still in love with his dead wife and spends his time reading her old diaries he always shows Vivian tenderness and respect It gradually becomes apparent that Lord Longstreet hoped all along for a match between Vivian and Darius and he goes out of his way to befriend Darius even naming him godfather to Vivian’s child He treats Darius like a son and Darius finds in Lord Longstreet the paternalistic affection he had never known from his own father It’s all rather unexpectedly movingI have now read all of Grace Burrowes’ published novels although she’s turning them out so uickly that’s it’s hard to keep up As I’ve said in other reviews she has certain authorial habits that drive me to distraction and yet I keep reading because her characters are so compelling I found fewer distractions in this book perhaps because I was so smitten by Darius himself I suspect that most readers will be smitten as wellHighly recommended

Darius Lord of PleasuresBeloved sister tainted by scandal his widowed brother shattered by grief and his funds cut off Darius Lindsey sees no option but to sell himself body and soul Until the day he encounters lovely beguiling Lady Vivian Longstreet whose tenderness and understanding wrap. This review was originally posted on Addicted To RomanceGrace Burrowes is one of my favorite authors to read After reading some of the Wyndham series she was bumped up to the top of my list In the past her stories have been emotionally driven stories with powerful characters Darius is the first in this series and by reading the synopsis I was beyond intrigued Darius is definitely a bit different than Burrowes other stories As I first started reading Darius I wasn't sure how much I would end up liking it How Darius and Vivian meet and get together isn't the exact situation I am normally comfortable with However as I continued to read through it I found I was captivated by this sweet story that ended up putting my emotions through the ringerDarius finds himself being put in a bad situation Penniless and desperate to protect his sister decides to offer himself up in return for money Each and every time he gives his body he can barely live with himself but he does what is necessary in order to survive Then one day a titled lord approaches him with a offer with a huge amount of funds in exchange for get his wife pregnant to secure her future Vivian loves her husband but not in a way of passion or romantic love She was a friend of his first wife and agreed to marry him when she had no one to turn to Now he has persuaded her that since he is older and unable to give her a child that she will need one after he has died In the beginning Vivian refuses to do so but knows it is her only option When she goes to their country estate and meets Darius she finds herself captivated by his touch She has never felt passion until now and now that she has found a man that she could come to deeply care for she will have to let him go and act as if they are mere acuaintances When she does find that she is pregnant with Darius's child she doesn't know if she can let him go Will Darius and Vivian be able to find their happy endingOverall I found Darius to be a astounding read and a great beginning to the Lonely Lords series I found this story enriching and deeply provoking I loved seeing Darius and Vivian and seeing how their relationship turns out It definitely wasn't what I was expecting I loved Darius from the beginning despite his being a man ho of sorts But I loved how protective he was of Vivian There was such a tender connection between these two that I admired from the start The intimacy that grows between them was endearing and I couldn't help but fall in love with these two Even Vivian's husband I admired as well such a sweet caring that you are bound to love as much as I did A intoxicating read full of a complex plot lively characters and a story that will break your heart A KEEPER TO PUT ON THE SHELF
