Ewan Mostyn, a war hero of the Napoleonic Wars, accepts a job as bodyguard for the Duke of Ridlington's feisty daughter, Lady Lorraine. The Duke tasks Ewan with keeping his daughter from eloping with Francis Mostyn, Ewan's cousin. Ewan is determined to keep Lorraine from his hated cousin, but along the way, he must now fend off the charms of the lady herself.
Ms. Galen has written a wonderfully charming story with our hero, a man of few words, and Lady Lorraine, a self-confessed chatterbox who is relentless in getting what she wants. I loved the interactions between these two. The book also tackles a serious problem and doesn't revert to cliches in solving it. I was captivated throughout this book and was eagerly turning the pages to find out what happened next. Fans of Regency romances will definitely enjoy this book.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review.
