A lady who can't be protected...
Anna Seaton is a beautiful, talented, educated woman, which is why it is so puzzling to Gayle Windham that she works as his housekeeper.

I really enjoyed reading this book. I have been in the Historical mood lately, so this book filled my appitite. The characters were well written, even the more minor characters were pleasing to read about. The plot was there and it was also pretty good. Anna has some secrets she hides from everyone but her sister, but the earl wants to hear those secrets. The Heir is pretty steamy with the sex scenes.
If you like Historical Romances this is a book you will want to read. It was good all around (characters, plot, scenes, writing style..). Also, keep your eyes open for more to come from Burrowes because THE HEIR is the first book in the series.
