~ Under the Covers
When I read the first book in this series, I fell in love with the lively Lady Gwyn. She’s been getting ready for her London season and she’s getting up there in age so she has to land a proposal. But before heading off, an old suitor comes back to threaten and blackmail her. So her brother decides to send their estate’s game keeper and ex-soldier with her as her bodyguard. But things are not as simple as they all suspect and she’s got plans and secrets of her own.
I’m always a sucker for a historical romance with a class disparity. Due to the hero also having an injury from his time at war, he walks with a cane and has plenty of scars. That doesn’t detract him from wanting to fulfill some mission in his life. That might’ve been my favorite part about this story. Joshua isn’t a flashy alpha hero, but he’s got a lot of heart and determination. He doesn’t let his shortcomings stop him from wanting and achieving more in his life. That goes for both getting the girl and also with his career.
This was a fun read, even if maybe a little less memorable than the first book in the series. However, I’m still looking forward to reading more from this series and author.
