I received this book by Rachel s Random Resources blog tour in exchange for an honest review thank you so much to Rachel and Virginia for giving me the The Hug opportunity to read and review The Disgraceful Lord Gray Oh my my my what an amazing and fun book was The Disgraceful Lord Gray I absolutely and thoroughly loved everything about it I am so glad and happy that I decided to join the blog tour for this book because I really been wanted to get back into reading historical romance books especially if it is set in the Regency era And The Disgraceful Lord Gray did not disappoint me at all I had so much fun reading this book from the very beginning to the very end Now I don t want to go into any details about this book without being to spoiler but I will say the beginningf the book was a great start to begin the story and it had me absolutely swoony for Lord Gray from the very start Especially when Miss Theodora Cranford aka Thea first meet Lord Grey at the Brooke with his adorable dog and she was really blushing as red as an apple to head to toe I really don t blame Thea for making a complete fool The Resurrection Tree and Other Stories of herself I wouldf made a complete fool Autostop con Buddha: Viaggio attraverso il Giappone outta myself as well if I ever meet a man like Lord Gray by the Brooke And that s why I love Thea so much I connected to her uickly I loved her personality so much she reminds me so much about myself she is also very stubborn hardhead woman that has an impetuous nature that she locked away but she is also a very beautiful loyal bluntly honest woman she loves her family to death and she will do anything to helpr save them She has and wants to find an honorable sensible suitor and to marry for love and not a suitor who is after her fortune especially not a suitor who is not a self assured scoundrel Speak the Ocean or a disgraceful lord like Lord Gray Ahh Lord Gray is a wild child at heart and he does not go by the rulesf society at all he likes to broke them and be free spirited as well That what I love about Lord Gray he is a wild and very free spirited man but he is also a really loyal kind hearted man with a big heart made Newark's Little Italy: The Vanished First Ward of gold even though that he guarded his heart for the past ten years after he was completely backstabbed and hurt from a past love That is until Lord Gray first meets Thea by the Brooke he felt an instant connection to her and he wanted to know about her But Lord Gray has to keep a secret from Thea and it close to her family especially her uncle Edward now I won t say why Gray wants to get close to Thea and her uncle because that it spoiler you just have to read this book and findut what I am talking about Now Gray and Thea banter and flirt left and right and have fun with each ther even though Thea tries to distance herself from Gray But both Thea and Gray can t help their deep attraction and connection they have with each ther the they both spend time together I absolutely love the slow burn love that both Gray and Thea had in this amazing book it just made them both complete each Tolstoy Lied: A Love Story other in every way to learn and know about each in The Disgraceful Lord Gray Now at the endf this book Thea does find Second Sight (Circle of Three, out what secret Gray was hiding from her and whatne family member was also hiding from her but will Gray s and Thea s love be saved at the end You just have to read The Disgraceful Lord Gray to find Strife out what happens next All and all I absolutely love
