Review for Duchess Lover, The
Author: Julie Beard
Date of Review: 04/23/02
Reviewed by: Deb Moores

Reviewer Comments: The Duke of Brandhurst is dead. And, the newly widowed Duchess of Brandhurst is, for the first time in her life, left to her own devices.

Confused, frightened and intensely relieved to be freed from a life of cruelty at the hands of the late Duke, Olivia turns to a stranger in a moment of vulnerability. An intriguing, enigmatic and roughly handsome stranger at least 10 years her junior and scandalously below her station in life--and she couldn't care less.

A year later, having suffered a long illness following the death of her husband, Olivia is still haunted by extraordinary dreams that leave her restless, shaken...and shocked. With her memories of a passionate night spent in the gardener's cottage lost to her illness, the dreams are all that remain...until she is introduced to the young artist who has been hired to redesign the Duchess' Garden--Willoughby Barnes.

Set against a richly detailed backdrop of Victorian England, THE DUCHESS' LOVER delivers a poignant May-December romance between a lady of means and a man of no means. Each seeking their own destiny, together they must learn how to trust, how to love and how to rise above the personal and social challenges that threaten to tear them apart.

In THE DUCHESS' LOVER, Julie Beard has created a comfortable, sensual, human and belivable cast of characters. If you're looking for a nice easy romance just made to while away a few afternoon hours lost in the eclectic Victorian era, this is the book for you!
