The Reluctant Guardian

GIVEAWAY

DIETZE, SUSANNE
THE RELUCTANT GUARDIAN

Under the spy's protection...

When Gemma Lyfeld inadvertently interrupts a dangerous smuggling operation in her English village, she's rescued by a mysterious Scottish spy. Now with criminals after her and her hopes for an expected marriage proposal recently dashed, she will make her society debut in London. But not without the man tasked with protecting her...

Covert government agent Tavin Knox must keep Gemma safe from the criminals who think she can identify them -- a mission he never wanted. But as he escorts her and her rascally nephews around London, the lovely English lass proves braver than he ever imagined. Suddenly, the spy who works alone has one Season to become the family man he never dreamed he'd be.

My Review:

Squuueaaallll!!! Regency, romance and intrigue all wrapped up together in one splendiferous story! I'm swoony and giddy and heart-palpitating over it all. Handsome, brooding hero who adopts his Scottish brogue when his emotions are deeply stirred. Be still my heart and scrape me off the floor! Phew! And his lady love also known as the irksome woman he has been charged with protecting. An independent heroine with a compassionate heart. Banter galore (and we all know how much I love witty dialogue -- especially in a Regency!) Intrigue and danger and a sweet faith thread about the true meaning of grace. It just doesn't get any better. Really.
