Publisher's Summary

Miss Violette is a damsel in distress.
 

The devil of it is, she just won't accept it.
 

Alone and far from home in the big city, Violette is on a mission to find a missing man - a war hero who never made it home - and she doesn't want a chaperone. Though she refuses to reveal who she is, or what the man means to her, the chivalrous Aubrey Russell doesn't care.
 

Accidentally thrust into the headstrong young lady's path, he decides she needs a protector.
 

Determined that the girl should not ruin herself in pursuit of the truth, Aubrey dogs her every step... and finds himself in a spot of bother.
 

Violette may be an innocent but she has an uncanny knack for finding trouble, and one way or another Aubrey is determined to save her from ruin.
 

The only question is, will he be able to save himself?
 

Note: This book and series contains mild swearing and mildly descriptive and graphic sex scenes - not erotica.

Books 1-10

**Review's for books 1-10**
Narrator did a very good job giving life to all character's and distinguishing them.

Book 1- Very good story kept me riveted and engaged from start to finish and looking forward to more.
Book 2- Same as the first.
Book 3- Really loved this tale over the 1st and 2nd.
Book 4- So far this one is my most favorite amongst the 10 I've read. I absolutely adored Beau and Millie.
Book 5- This is where thing's start going south for me. I just loved Aubrey in the previous books but he was too young and submissive for my taste in this one. The whole story lacked EVERYTHING it's previous stories did. I also didn't like Violette.
Book 6- Was a chore and found Edward and Belle a bit boring and more wanting to know more about Clercy instead.
Book 7- Here's where I really get upset! Half or more of this book I had already read in book 6!! This is a huge pet peeve of mine when author's do this because we're not getting a FULL fresh book at all but still paying for something we've already bought!! UGH!! This story was beyond ridiculous also and I truly hated it. It left me mad and upset.  Gabriel was such a weak "hero" that I laugh at even thinking him to be considered one. He's actually the opposite of a hero. Clercy was portrayed too perfect and accepting, which I was expecting to see more, even a damn ghost or two but NADA!! Although I appreciated her blunt approach, she's just far too young and inexperienced to be so "perfect " which made this entire story just too far fetched and unbelievable.
Book 8- Again, another submissive Male which is a turn off and a female that's unremarkable. Predictable tale with nothing new.
Book 9- I enjoyed this one and hoped that the author found her lost mojo of bringing back the joy I found in the first few of the series.
Book 10- I was wrong because this was yet again a huge disappointment. I will stop here and save my money and time on finding another author.

Finding fate

Loved Violets and Aubreys story!! Violet comes to London to look for her brother who was believed to have been killed over 2 yrs ago in the war!! When Aubrey saves her and offers to assist her. The next morning Violet is gone and Aubrey knows exactly where she has gone to Seven Dials. Because of what he’s doing for Violet people think his a rake and sired a bastard child. He heads there finds her and brings her back to his cousin Alex’s house.
Alex agrees to help Violet. When she disappears again they all head to Seven Dials and not only find her but her brother Edward!!! Aubrey knows he’s not good enough for Violet but he loves her and she him.
An intriguing story with a beautiful ending.

OKAY.

IT'S A GOOD STORY. Just not my favorite in the series. I think it is a good set up for Winterborne.

A delight to listen to.

I cannot sing the praises of Emma V Leech and Philip Battley too high, the story and narration keep me spellbound for hours.
Thank you Emma for the beautifully crafted story and Philip for the life you give the players with your voice.
i say this every time I listen to any of this series but that is because it is in my opinion.
