Beckman, has spent years trying to recover from past griefs, and with his father practically on his deathbed, he agrees to restore a family estate, that needs work and a helping hand. So despite his reluctance, he knows that he needs to do this. So when he heads down, he doesn't expect to be attracted to the housekeeper, but she holds secrets of her own. Sara Hunt, has had her own past and sorrows of her own. She was married young, and used for her talents by her greedy husband, now widowed, with a daughter and a sister to care for, she is determined to secure their future. When Beckman arrives to help with the estate, Sara just wants to pretend that everything is alright, when the estate is practically tumbling down on them, with little funds to support them all. Soon she can't resist Beckman, his sincere interest in her, or the desire she feels for him. But when her past comes to haunt her again, she might have to trust everything she is to Beckman, and trust in his devotion to her...

Beckman is the fourth book in the Lonely Lords and I have really been enjoying this series. After reading the first two books, I have been looking forward to reading Beckman's story. Grace Burrowes is a author that I am glad to have discovered. Her stories are witty, charming, and pure delightful fun, and Beckman was no different. I did have a difficult time at first getting into the story, but I think the problem was myself and current stresses in life, and not the actual wrting or even the story. Beckman is a story that shows a journey of two people that have both struggled, and have dark pasts, but still need to heal and focus on the future.

Beckman, has had quite a struggle in his life, but I loved him even more for it. He has such tremendous strength and compassion for others, and I found myself falling in love with him with every page. At first he seems like the usual regency rake, but as the story progresses further, you start to see that he carries so much depth with him, and suffers just as much as the other members in his family have. Sara is very stubborn and prideful, and refuses to ask for help, especially when she desperatley needs it. Sara has had to make decisions ever since she was married at a young age, and most of her freedoms taken away from her at a young age. You see how she is struggling to protect herself and her emotions from Beckman, but Beckman is just as stubborn as Sara, and won't let her go without a fight.

A uniquely written romance that is bound to create laughter and your immediate attention. Characters to steal your heart, a love story that is beyond riveting and will tie your heart up in knots. A WINNER OF A ROMANCE! ( )

We are now well vested in these lonely men and here comes Beckman who’s a fourth hero of Grace Burrowes’ Lonely Lords series.

Beckman is another widower with personal issues and secrets. As in previous books from this series, both characters are plenty flawed and are dealing with a lot of emotional baggage that needs to be resolved before they can let go and love each other fully.

I should mention another thing I appreciate from this author and that’s her writing of family relationships, be it brothers and sisters, Aunts, cousins, fathers and sons, or even children in her books. She literally breathes life into them all that ‘feel’s real and potent. It’s like they’re right there in my room. When I read Grace Burrowes books, I ‘hear’ a totally different ‘voice’ in my head than any other voice before.

Please pay close attention to two secondary characters in this book, Gabriel and Polly, who are a sister and a steward of the heroine, Sara and will have a book of their own.

Again, highly recommending it, but if you’re new to her, here are some books you may want to start off before you read the Lonely Lords.

BECKMAN: LORD OF SINS by Grace Burrowes is a delightful Regency Historical Romance . Book 3 in the "Lonely Lords" series, but can be read as a stand alone. See, "Darius", and "Nicholas". A riveting love story from beginning to end. Fast paced with passion, secets, and love. I love this author's stories and the "Lonely Lords" series shows her talent as a storyteller. "Beckman: Lord of Sins" is story of grief,pass affairs,guilt and the power of love. Well written with intriguing and engaging characters. I can hardly wait to learn of Gabriel's secrets,as a secondary character in this story, he is bound to have his own story soon. Historical romance readers are sure to enjoy "Beckman", with his past sins and his future coming together,you do not want to miss this story. A must read! Received for an honest review the publisher and Net Galley.

RATING: 4.5

another Burrowes winner!

Beckman Haddonfield, Earl of Bellefonte, is to put an estate of his grandmother's to rights. His farewell to his dying father is a poignant moment that brought forth if not a tear, a deep heartfelt sigh.
He is a man with a past, and a future to be determined.
A curious menagerie of persons inhabit his grandmother's property, Three Springs. There's Sara, Polly and Allie. All artistic, with Allie seemingly a child prodigy. (Burrowes makes some interesting comments on child prodigies in these times in her notes.)
Then there's the mysterious Gabriel North who reads French and dresses in the best labels, even if they are all well worn.
As Beck labours alongside this complex group of people he's found, all with dark secrets, but somehow becoming almost a family, he reflects on his companions, 'Here...he was not amongst strangers. He was with the same people day and night, he was becoming familiar with them...He was, in short, growing attached.'
Beck's soliloquies are rather wonderful, thoughtful, and show a character of depth and feeling. I am falling in love with his gentleness of spirit. He wanted what tormented North solved 'because it plagued North's soul.' Just a wonderful reading moment that stopped me in my tracks as I contemplated this increasingly sensitive character that Burrowes has created.
It does seem to me that as Burrowes writes this series, each story is amplified by and draws strength from the previous book. Her main characters portray more fully developed personas, from Darius whom I didn't much like, to now Beckman, who is far more thoughtfully rounded. Scarred from his past he is a quietly compelling character. He is very much a considerate listening soul. He is the Prodigal returned, and renewed.
Ah Yes! the story is at once complicated, simple and I loved it!
