"I'm not getting any sleep since I discovered this author... I find myself actually "being" in the room with her characters--not just a voyeur! In this book, her second in the series, the abduction scenes are thrilling one minute, hysterical the next--and sometimes so very endearing that they bring tears to my eyes. She is an amazing "Rake" writer. Philip Moray is my favorite rake of all time. Linore puts me in mind of Marion Chesney, and even sometimes of the Queen, Miss Heyer. What a find to discover this talented author. All I can say is "Bravo" please bring us more! Your wonderful scripture interludes give me my spiritual fix every time."

"From the cut of Ariana's wedding gown to the intricacies of the artwork in Number 25 Grosvenor Square, Burkard lays Regency London before the reader with skill. She has done an exceptional job with dialogue, and I appreciate the attention she gives to Ariana and Phillip's alone time. A superb job has also been done of introducing future story-lines and I am looking forward with anticipation to her next installment."

" This book was simply exquisite, from beginning to end. Full of charm and lush with period detail, the author really outdid herself. After reading this book and it's predecessor, Linore Rose Burkard definitely is at the top of my favorite authors list. I love how it feels like Jane Austen, but has more details and insight into the characters minds. A charming, entertaining, and encouraging read. Unlike a lot of sequels I've read, this one was just as good as the first!"
"Ms. Burkard provides an exciting follow-up to "Before the Season Ends" in this book. She keeps you hanging on every word til the end."

"Ms. Burkard has a knack of writing intriguing prose and outstanding historical details that draw you in completely. I enjoyed reading it and recommend this book and this author highly."
Cindy K. Green, Romance Author
"Linore Rose Burkard weaves wonderfully complex dramas that make you want to go and read all your Jane Austen books as soon as you close the cover of hers. Her books are filled with a myriad of intriguing characters... This was a really fun book to read. Highly recommended. "

"I lost sleep reading this book, I couldn't put it down. A great read that goes by all too fast. Not only do we experience the romance in a regency period, but Ms. Burkard does an excellent job bringing intrigue into the story. The same wonderful clothes, language, and characters--a book you'll talk about to all your friends! I know I did! "

"Much to my surprise, I plowed through both Burkard's books in two days! These books shocked me at how great they are, not because Burkard is a sub par writer (she isn't), but because I didn't think I would enjoy another Regency story. Burkard is a phenomenal writer. She has captured Austen's style enough to amaze me, but made it her own enough to keep me turning the pages.
The characters are well fleshed out and memorable. ..These books would make a great gift for all the Austen lovers in your life. Burkard lives up to her tag line a thousand times over! "

"If you like Austen, you should read this series. Some regency writers try to copy Austen to the extent that their own story is lost. That is not the case in this book, however. I loved it. Linore is historically accurate, without being stuffy, or too detailed. The mayhem that occurs in this book is astounding. I loved when they are all going to each others houses, and missing each other by seconds. It was truly comical. This whole series delighted me, and I am eagerly awaiting book three, "The Country House Courtship". "
"I supply good deals" Amazon Seller and Reviewer
"Once again Linore comes through with a delightful story, this time with more excitement and suspense. Again we are drawn in to the point that it's hard to put the book down. I was thoroughly intrigued and delighted. As a friend of mine said who also read it, I didn't want it to end. I can't wait for the sequel. READ THIS BOOK! You'll be a fan of Linore's from the very first chapter. "
A. Tjiong, Amazon Reviewer
"This book has everything that the first one had, and perhaps even more! Adventure, romance, spiritual depth and on top of them all, a wedding!! I loved, loved, loved it!"

" I love a book that I can get lost in, the kind that transports me to another place or another time... Ms. Burkard's vivid, detailed descriptions made the 19th century come alive. I felt like I was right there--sitting beside Ariana in a carriage or running through the streets with Phillip. Often found myself speaking more formally and even curtseying to my husband.
[A] beautifully written book [and] wonderful tale, proving Ms. Burkard is a master of this time period. I will definitely be on the lookout for more from her.
"Kept me up very late reading to find out how it all works out in the end. I totally enjoyed and loved every minute of this book. You can read this book without reading the first. It's that good"
Nora St.Laurent, TCBN Founder, GA
"Once again, Burkard has captured the rich dialogue of the Regency period in an inspirational tale where faith plays a vital role in the characters' lives. Her attention to detail and historical research enable her to do a wonderful job of depicting the period. THE HOUSE IN GROSVENOR SQUARE delivered all it promised. I had a good time visiting my old friends Ariana and Mornay and enjoyed this fast-paced tale of trials overcome and mysteries resolved."
