Grace Burrowes gives us the second book in her series about the Windham cousins and, as I always expect from one of her books, it was a delightful historical romance.
Colin is trying to manage being newly titled while trying desperately to steer clear of marriage. He's out of place and missing his home, but he is not one to turn his back on family responsibilities. Despite the difficulties he is facing in London, he finds himself intrigued by Anwen, the young sister of his brother's wife. When she asks him help her at the orphanage she volunteers at, he immediately rises to the occasion and takes several of the boys under his wing. As they begin to spend more time together, their blossoming romance is threatened by people not wanting Colin to remain in London or keep his title.
I enjoyed this tremendously, both characters are so loyal, intelligent and creative in the way they handle problems. Their relationship was charming and sweet and I enjoyed spending time with both of them. There were just enough issues thrown in to keep things interesting. Another highly enjoyable read by Burrowes.

A MAN WITH MANY TALENTS
As a captain in the army, Colin MacHugh led men, fixed what was broken, and fought hard. Now that he's a titled gentleman, he's still fighting-this time to keep his bachelorhood safe from all the marriage-minded debutantes. Then he meets the intriguing Miss Anwen Windham, whose demure nature masks a bonfire waiting to roar to life. When she asks for his help to raise money for the local orphanage, he's happy to oblige.
Anwen is amazed at how quickly Lord Colin takes in hand a pack of rambunctious orphan boys. Amazed at how he actually listens to her ideas. Amazed at the thrill she gets from the rumble of his Scottish burr and the heat of his touch. But not everyone enjoys the success of an upstart. And Colin has enemies who will stop at nothing to ruin him and anybody he holds dear.
