Review for With This Kiss : Part One by Eloisa James

Title: With This Kiss : Part One
Author : Eloisa James

Description: Lady Grace Ryburn, the daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Ashbrook, has fallen wildly in love with Colin Barry, a dashing young lieutenant serving his country in the Royal Navy. When he returns home to exuberant celebrations, will he even notice the quiet wallflower he grew up with … or will he fall for Grace's sparkling, gorgeous sister?

Author's Note: Lady Grace is the eldest daughter of the Duke and Duchess of Ashbrook, from The Ugly Duchess, and Colin is the eldest adopted son of Sir Griffin Barry, from Seduced by a Pirate.

My Thoughts: In part one of this three part series, you meet Lady Grace as a young girl of 10 who develops feelings for Colin, the oldest adopted son of Sir Barry Griffin. After coming to his rescue, and being mistaken for her younger sister, she lets her love grow stronger through the years for a young man who grows into an admirable, navy officer.

James weaves of tale of unrequited love, on Lady Grace’s part, as we wait for Colin to realize love is blind and right under his nose in the sister he hadn't thought that way about.

I enjoyed Part One greatly. Seeing how the characters and relationships developed. My heart went out to Grace and I loved Colin for the tortured hero that he is, but I sure did want to yell at him once or twice. I also deeply enjoyed the bond between the families as well as parent to children. James has hooked me with Part One. For those who have to wait for the next parts, it will be torture and all part of a devious plan to build up anticipation, I am in no doubt.
