His Every Kiss by Laura Lee Guhrke

Everyone knows about Dylan Moore—his brilliant talent and his pleasure-seeking ways—but no one knows the torment that lies beneath his reckless veneer. Only one woman gets a glimpse of the forces that drive Dylan's soul, a woman who haunts his dreams and evokes his passions as no other woman ever has before.

Disgraced and destitute, Grace Cheval wants nothing to do with the seductive man who desires her. When Dylan offers her a position as governess to his newfound daughter, she knows his true intentions are dishonorable. Yet she finds this charismatic man hard to resist, and she returns his passionate kisses with a fire that matches his own. Can Dylan dare hope that this proud, spirited beauty will melt the ice around his heart?

Oh.My.Goodness! Loved loved loved this book! Such a great read, had me laughing and crying. I could not put it down, not even for a second. I loved all the characters it was so perfectly written. LLG didn't hold back on the flaws in any of the characters, and it added so much to the book. This will forever be one of my all time favorite historical books.

When we first see Dylan he is saddened and depressed wanting to just end it all. He has his pistol and is contemplating the merits of living anymore. When out of nowhere an angel appears playing a violin. She tells him not to do it, that he has a reason to keep living. Then she is gone...

Grace never forgot the day she saved Dylan from killing himself, and thinks she'll never see him agian. Untill she is playing at a ball he is in attendace at. As soon as she is done she slips away only Dylan has no intention of letting his angel slip away from him agian.

Dylan finding himself in a new situation with a daughter he has just met and a woman he needs to keep near to drive away the demons in his mind he hires Grace on as his daughters new governess.

As things heat up with Dylan and Grace differant aspects come to....Grace is falling for both a man and his daughter and fearing her past is doomed to repeat itself. Dylan is trying to change his ways of bachlorhood to become an ideal father and falling for his angel Grace too. And just when it seems they might all find their happily ever after something turns up that just might ruin it all.

You must read this book to find out all of Dylan and Graces trials and how they end up. It's a story you don't want to miss.
