Ethan (Lonely Lords #3) by Grace Burrowes
That Ethan Grey! A giant of a man with (I'm thinking) just a touch of The Nonesuch. A man of integrity and understanding, yet lost. A man of secrets and shame. A gentle gentleman, hurting yet kind, with his own particular brand of humour. And Alice is such a great foil for him with her own hurts and secrets and her own brand of courage. A woman of keen intelligence and great determination. A sweetly redemptive story of life and coming back from the dark past illuminated by acceptance and love. Made the more charming by the level of conversation and banter between the various parties. Well written and thoroughly enjoyable.
