Book Description:

Ethan Grey's life was shattered...

Estranged from his family, widowed after an unhappy marriage, and weary from fighting his troubled past, Ethan Grey now has a chance for redemption. His son's beautiful and remarkable governess might help him battle his ghosts, but it's been a long time since he let himself get close to anyone.

Alice Portman has more in common with Ethan than she can comfortably admit. For now, she's satisfied with helping him rebuild his life and family. But the dangerous past is about to catch up with them both.


Ethan by Grace Burrowes is a all encompassing story, that take you through every emotion with excruciating delightful detail until you feel as if you know the characters as well as they know themselves, if not better.

Ms. Burrowes’s beautiful writing draws you into the story by painting every scene in a way you cannot help but envision and enjoy.

These two broken people find in each other a soul partner who understands them at a level that they require. Through each conversation and turn of events, they come to trust each other in the only way that they’d ever allow someone so close, with time. With such deep hurts from the past they can relate to one another until falling so deeply in love that they see only magnificence in each other.

Ethan is a very different hero; he is vulnerable and has experienced some extraordinary sufferings in his past that you normally do not see in heroes. What would make most men seem weakened makes this hero even more remarkable. I fell in love the quiet and reserved strength of this man.

Alice is a governess that comes from money but goes away from that life after a life altering experience. Everything that would make Alice see herself as a sensual attractive woman is gone, until meeting Ethan.  With him she discovers herself as she is meant to be. I loved how she did not shy away from her attraction to him and a sensual relationship.

Ethan will make you desire what this couple has, the knack for communication and such a powerful attraction. I loved how Ethan gives Alice time to become accustomed to him and never pushed always ensuring for her to be aware that he cherished her.

Ethan is a wonderful romantic getaway.

If I were to suggest a drink while reading this novel, I would suggest a traditional Merlot while listening to Mozart’s Moonlight Sonata.  (Reviewed by Chanel of Chanel Chancey Reviews) – I Read, I Review, That’s It!
