The Duke of Jervaulx was brilliant and dangerous. Considered dissolute, reckless, and extravagant, he was transparently referred to as the ′D of J′ in scandal. It’s Laura Kinsale at the top of her game – or anybody else’s, for that matter. I read Flowers From the Storm 4 times and each time was as heart wrenching as. flowers from the storm Oh yeah, and I read Laura Kinsale’s Flowers from the Storm and never looked at linguistics, illness, communication.

I would imagine women whose fhe are away at sea are more likely to be stressed out. This Earl is on Fire. She’s used to being told what to do, to obeying the precepts of her religious elders, to sitting in silence and allowing God to speak to her during the Meetings. I felt some identification with her as a person of faith, but at the same time, I felt that she gives people of faith a bad name because of her legalistic and judgmental way of life.
Women, he thought sardonically, sinking in the bedclothes, with sleep revolving and closing in his head. She become a romance writer after six years as a geologist–a career which consisted of getting out of bed in the middle of the night and driving hundreds of miles alone across west Texas to sit drilling rigs, wear a hard hat, and at Laura Kinsale is a New York Times bestselling author and both winner and multiple nominee for the Best Book of the Year award given by the Romance Laurz of America.
What you told me, in fact, already gave me something to think about. These two characters are like no one and nothing else in this genre, and I love them so much. Then I gave it away. Love love love this book!
The Book I’ll Never Reread: Laura Kinsale’s FLOWERS FROM THE STORM
I so enjoyed this novel! Want to Read Currently Reading Read. I have not read romantic fiction for many years and now realize you need very good author to give you an outstanding story. Laura Kinsale has been added to this list. But she’s also a part of a religious community. I have a book ths that I used all the time until I realized that people probably think Im still reading the same book everytime they see me and maybe I cant read that well!
There were so many amazing quotes and tender moments, I wanted to highlight the entire book. I could not resist to show it to all my friends.
But one of my favorite scenes is with his dragon relative who tells Maddy that if she goes back to her Quaker lifestyle she will continue to do hte tiny little good things when as a Duchess she could really accomplish good for many. I love this book so much. Maria, so glad to hear from you!
I just finished Flowers from the Storm and was blown away. Remember that… Maddy… It was wrong. It is because of the compassion scene. This made rading the book difficult because it was emotionally exhausting. The paperback has been lying there on my bedtable for months nearly a year but then I bought the audiobook a week ago after some indications that this male narrator is amazing.

Georgette Heyer and Victoria Holt soon became idols to me. He sent Archimidea Timms aka Maddygirlthe Quaker.
Laura, that makes me very happy to hear! He’s totally not crazy!
I always love a guy who likes dogs. It has the love story between two imperfect people; the long, amazing, full of ups and downs journey of theirs to finally arrive at happiness; and what I love most, is the sacred meaning of love and marriage, told in the most beautiful way through the struggling words of Christian.
I’ve read it numerous times. Countess by Coincidence House of Haverstock, Book 3. Who else is a geometrical genius? No, quiero ser justa conmigo misma. I was never very happy with that title, and wish I were better at thinking up good titles! A person of the mind, an intellectual can have an experience almost like dying when that part of their persona fails. I did read Midnt Moon, a more light-hearted read, very cute, made me want to go buy a hedgehog!

Erin, thanks so much. I had always been an avid romance reader in my early teens, twenties and thirties but for one reason or the other which escapes me at this pointI went on a 10 year hiatus of not reading these kind of books.
