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.

From every danger

“Hoyt’s eighth Maiden Lane series installment imbues eighteenth-century England with vivid realism, as a protector falls in love with the woman he is guarding…Suspense ratchets up a notch when Phoebe and James must flee London…Hoyt has created an especially strong admirable character in Phoebe, a woman who is determined to experience life to the fullest. Her innocent sensuality is both captivating and enchanting, creating scintillating romance between her and the stoic captain.” Publishers Weekly
“Ashford McNab’s quiet, deliberate pacing and gifted facility with accents makes listening to book eight in the Maiden Lane series very enjoyable…McNab masterfully gives just the right voice and accent to each of the characters—whether aristocrat, servant, British, or other. She also changes the pacing of her narration when appropriate, adding to the excitement of the developing romance.” AudioFile
