Some Reviews of The Guardian ...

Publisher’s Weekly. Starred review
Gripping, suspenseful first-person narrative from top-ranked Regency historical author Joan Wolf will remind readers why they love the genre.. Cool, self-possessed beauty Annabelle Grandville’s privileged world is shaken when her first love, Stephen Grandville, returns to Weston, the family estate on the Sussex Downs, as guardian to new earl Giles, his nephew …and her young son. Stephen’s five-year Jamaica exile had sent Annabelle into his now-deceased brother’s arms. Can their once-passionate love affair be rekindled? Annabelle barely has time to ponder the possibilities before murder attempts are mind on Stephen’s and Giles’s lives. Suddenly, every Grandville family member stands suspect, and Annabelle’s no longer sure whom she can trust. Smartly plotted, with funny, believable dialogue and a large, consistently well-drawn cast of characters, this is romance writing at its best.


Romantic Times
Ms. Wolf writes a spellbinding tale of a couple thrown together and protective of one another since childhood as their love grows to an all-encompassing passion, a love that overcomes all adversity….a luscious treat.
4 stars

The Belles and Beaux of Romance
“Joan Wolf always delivers a stellar reading experience. … The latest treasure by Joan Wolf is The Guardian. Set in Regency England it is a tale about an extraordinary woman and how she deals with family secrets, deceit, and the great love of her life.

The Arrangement ,,,
Another winner…wonderfully written….Whether your favorite Joan Wolf story features Regency heroes, strong heroines, or marvelous Regency era settings, you'll find it all here in The Arrangement.
Sherry Crane – Compu-Serve Romance Reviews

The Deception …
What with the resurgence of interest in Jane Austen, Regency romances are enjoying a renewed popularity. Veteran novelist Wolf (best known for her prehistoric The Reindeer Hunters), turns in her own delightful addition, one that combines sensuality and passion with a spirited first-person narrative. When Kate Fitzgerald's horse-trader father is killed, she's placed with her malicious uncle, who spitefully maneuvers her into marriage with Adrian, Earl of Greystone. Waterloo hero Greystone accepts the unfortunate situation, but Kate falls deeply in love. Against the colorful racetrack background of the running of the Guineas at Newmarket, she schemes to entrap the aristocrat who murdered her father.

    A Quick Read!

    I like Joan Wolf's stories because she always writes in interesting hobbies or behavior that I don't usually read about. In this one, the heroine trains dogs and horses for the fox hunt.

    Good read, though not my favorite Joan Wolf

    The story is engaging and the characters sympathetic, though I don't see myself going back to read it again and again as I've done with some other Joan Wolf books (eg Fool's Masquerade, Lord Richard's Daughter). I do recommend it if you like books with beautiful heroines with expert horsemanship and multiple men who want her.
