HE CAN GUARD HER
Lady Phoebe Batten is pretty, vivacious, and yearning for a social life befitting the sister of a powerful duke. But because she is almost completely blind, her overprotective brother insists that she have an armed bodyguard by her side at all times-the very irritating Captain Trevillion.
FROM EVERY DANGER
Captain James Trevillion is proud, brooding, and cursed with a leg injury from his service in the King's dragoons. Yet he can still shoot and ride like the devil, so watching over the distracting Lady Phoebe should be no problem at all-until she's targeted by kidnappers.
BUT PASSION ITSELF
Caught in a deadly web of deceit, James must risk life and limb to save his charge from the lowest of cads-one who would force Lady Phoebe into a loveless marriage. But while they're confined to close quarters for her safekeeping, Phoebe begins to see the tender man beneath the soldier's hard exterior...and the possibility of a life-and love-she never imagined possible.
This one was different in many ways. First, 1740s. Second, the heroine was blind. Third, she will marry a commoner.
Phoebe is blind and needs a guard. In comes James. A soldier now in service of her brother, the Duke. Phoebe was, ok so I got that she wanted more freedom. But you are blind. And people want to kidnap you, for money or to forcefully marry you. So I would be more careful.
James is one of those chip on this shoulder kind of guys. But we learn more about that later on, quite later on. Then I really understood him.
Ok so we know she blind. We know it was an earlier setting (though did not see much of that :(
The marrying thing then. Duh. This is a HR. That is not a spoiler. Of course they will get each other in the end. The road there is long as she is a duke's sister, he is nothing.
Nr 8 in a series, I have read none of the others, worked perfectly still
Since people want to kidnap here there is a bit of suspense. Who is after her? And to not forget the forbidden passion. Good.
Both heads please
