By Grace Possessed is book two in The Three Graces series by Jennifer Blake.

Lady Catherine Milton is the middle sister of the famous cursed Three Graces of Graydon. Lady Catherine and her sisters Isabel and Marguerite are said to bear a curse in which any man who marries them without loving them will die soon after the betrothal victim of the curse.
Her older sister Isabel is now happily married with a man who adores her, but Lady Catherine knows that the possibility of a love match for her and her sister Marguerite is almost non existent because men are afraid of the curse and the ones willing to try their luck with the curse would do it just to get their hands in the Graydon’s fortune and not for love for the ladies.

Lady Catherine doesn’t like hunting and when she is invited to follow King Henry in one of his hunting excursions she starts to fall behind to avoid witnessing the gruesome killings. Without realizing Lady Catherine has lost her way and now she is lost in the middle of the forest and surrounded by a band of outlaws.
The Scotsman Ross Dumbar knows Lady Catherine always falls behind during the hunting parties, for that reason he likes to keep an eye on her and good that he did because now he needs to come to her rescue.
During the fight with the bandits Lady Catherine and Dumbar have lost their horses. Now they find themselves in the middle of a darkening and snowing forest with no mounts to return to palace, the only option is to stay put and wait for morning light and hopefully for a search and rescue party to find them.
Soon after the rescue party brings them back to palace they are call to the Kings chambers. Henry VII explain to them that after spending the night together and alone in the forest it is necessary for the to get married to maintain the appearances at court, so by King’s decreed they leave the rooms as a betrothed couple.
Lady Catherine appreciates Dumbar, for the same reason she doesn’t want to marry him, she worries he will die because of her curse. Dumbar likes Lady Catherine but as a Scotsman he doesn’t want to wed a British lady, he also knows his father will disown him and he would be cast out of his clan if his father finds out about his betrothal to a Sassenach.
But times of turmoil between the Yorks and the Lancasters will bring them together more than ever, leaving them not other option than to trusts their hearts.

I liked Lady Catherine, she knows want she wants and she goes for it. She may not believe in finding the love of her life but that doesn’t mean she won’t get her pleasure. I also like that she was a strong heroine not easily cowed.

Ross Dumbar is a sexy as hell Scotsman with a love for kilts. *swoon* He is smart, loyal, courteous and with a good sense of humor. What else could we ask for a perfect hero?

The attraction between Cate and Ross is off the charts making their journey to their relationship a believable one. They are a funny, lively and a well match couple.

From the secondary characters I liked King Henry; he is smart and a strategist at heart. He cares for his people and will do anything to protect them. Same with Lady Marguerite, she is the younger sister but sometimes she felt very wise for her years. I also loved that we see more of Lady Isabel and Rand’s life together (By His Majesty’s Grace) as well as one of my favorite character from book one, David.

Its complots, intrigues, romance and more make of By Grace Possessed a great addition to a great series. In this book Mrs. Blake continues to intermingle a very well written romance with historical accurate facts, making of By Grace Possessed and this series in general a great choice for all historical romance lovers.
The Next installment of this series Seduced by Grace bring us the story of two of my favorite characters, Lady Marguerite and David. Needless to say I’m looking forward to read it. ( )

This was an enjoyable read. I'll admit that I haven't read the first in the series yet (still on library's waiting list) and some things probably would have made a little more sense early on if I had, but it didn't really detract from my enjoyment of the story. This book does catch you up on the major things you need to know about the Three Graces and their "curse", though I'm hoping that book one does a better job of convincing readers that the curse is real (this one really just has the characters confirm it through their own beliefs; you don't really see any evidence yourself). I haven't read much set in this time period--I've read a bunch of later Tutor period works, and a few set earlier in the Middle Ages--so I wasn't terribly familiar with the politics of the times, but the author did a nice job of explaining what was going on throughout the novel. Her research of the period really shows--it gave a great flavor to the book. At times Cate and Ross did seem to be a tad bit obtuse, but this was only a minor distraction. Overall I am looking forward to reading book one and finishing up with Marguerite's story afterwards. ( )

NOTE: This is the 2nd book in the The Three Graces Trilogy and another great addition. I am enjoying this historical set in the time of Henry VII very much.

What I Loved: Ross and Catherine were a very well matched couple. They both had strengths and weaknesses that balanced them out. I almost swooned when Ross rescued Catherine from the bandits near the beginning of the book. My swooning did not end there either---he was always doing something very worthy of being her man! However, being Scottish he did not feel he was worthy of an English Lady. Lucky for him, Henry was a bit smarter and so was Catherine. The love story was just all around wonderful.

What I Liked: I have a feeling that Seduced by Grace is going to be my favorite book of the series. Lady Marguerite Milton is a spitfire, romantic, and really wants to be swept off her feet. I enjoyed getting to know more about her in this installment of the series.

Complaints: None

Why I gave it a 4: The was an enjoyable addition to the series. ( )
