Most Helpful Customer Reviews
This is a book you can read fairly quickly. I found it a little slow at first, but it got really interesting and I read it without stopping. No plot spoilers follow. Lady Regan is still mourning her father's death and is determined to continue his work helping the poor, against the wishes of her family. Her main project is building a hospital for the people who live in Whitechapel. Someone does not want her to do this and is threatening her. She goes to Hazard's Outriders, a bodyguard service, for help. When her first guard is hurt, Jack Hazard, owner and former soldier, decides to guard her himself. Jack has his own reasons to guard her. It involves her grandfather, the powerful Duke of Chiles. He also works for the Duke and is not the only one looking into the Duke's dealings. I can't write any more because you'll really like this complex story as it evolves. I do hope Jack's friend, Lord Ashecroft gets his own story and HEA. There is more to him than meets the eye.
