Publisher's Summary

In the third installment of USA Today bestselling author Christi Caldwell's Sinful Brides series, a kingpin of London's underbelly risks his heart on the woman he's hired to protect.

London, 1822

At the notorious Hell and Sin Club nestled in London's dark streets, Niall Marksman relishes taking the fortunes of the very same society that once disregarded his existence. Oh yes, Niall has sold his soul to the devil and paid dearly. It's only when Lady Diana Verney appears at the gaming club looking for help that Niall knows that the devil has finally come to collect...by forcing him to protect the duke's pampered daughter.

Disdained by the peerage and ignored by her father, Diana knows that someone wants to harm her. Her only protection is Niall, a scarred, intense man who lives and dies by the knife. Now her life and safety are in the hands of the most dangerous man in London. But a man raised on the city's mercenary streets is adept at stealing anything he wishes - including a lady's reputation and her heart.

skimming in boredom

No clever dialogue, nothing quite believable or intriguing. Falling in love with a man from St Giles, that still spoke without pronouncing his H's and used "oi" instead of an I, was such a stretch. He switched to cockney often especially when upset or angered which was often and then a cultured voice the rest of the time and yet he hated members of the Ton. Copying their speech was not normal for someone who hated the upper crust. Much made no sense. All in all I was ready to quit after 3 hours went by and not much happened. An unrealistic storyline which did not draw me in at all.

TWO TORTURED LONELY SOULS

This is the first time I have given a book in Sinful Bride series 5 stars. The Lady's Guard was excellent. It picks up a year after bk.2 The Scoundrel's Honor. This is the story of Lady Dianna Verney the Legitimate Daughter of the Duke of Wilkinson.

Niall Marksman is co owner of the Hell and Sin Club a notorious gaming hell in St. Giles. Niall is head of the Security for the club. All of the owners of the club grew up together in the rookeries of St. Giles, stealing, killing and all sort of crimes to keep alive. They were also, badly abused by the older men who hired made them commit these crimes. But Niall's and his street brother got out and build a successful and very profitable Gaming Club.

I loved Lady Diana she is just a hurt and very lonely soul but she is rich, beautiful, very young and the daughter of a rich Duke. Diana's mother the Duchess of Wilkinson had tried to kill her husband The Dukes Illegitimate children Ryker Black primary owner of the Hell and Sin club and his sister Helena. Diana had no idea they existed. Once the Ton found out about it Diana and her father were of course ostracized from polite society. Diana's father has gone into a state of mourning, he loved his mistress and never knew what had happen to her and his children by her. He had never shown Diana that love and she felt it was because he never loved her mother. You can really feel Diana's pain she is just unwanted and this is a fact. She is so kind, intelligent and beautiful but terribly lonely and neglected. Some one is trying to kill her. Her father doesn't believe her but after the 3rd attempt she decides to seek the help of her Half Brother Ryker Black. Who she believes doesn't want to have anything to do with her. He has not contacted her or invited her to his wedding, so she is not sure if he will help. Especially after what her mother did to his mother and him and his sister.

Ryker helps her by sending Niall to guard her. Niall hates the peerage. He hates this job of guarding the Princess. But brave Diana breaks down his defenses with her kindness and bravery. Niall comes to see she is not a high minded lady of the Ton but is very much a mistreated soul like himself.

The build up to Naill and Diana falling in love is just beautifully done. There dialog is believable. They are two tortured lonely souls that find each other and a everlasting love. The ending was so perfect!! This is a Must Read but read the other two books first because they connect.

Great her

Without a doubt one of my all time favorite heroes ever. Haven't geared up over a romance in a long time. Two people who shouldn't be together but are perfect for each other! The voice performance is flawless as usual.

not a bad conclusion I guess.

gets there, just takes a long time doing so.

could have cut out a whole heap of the story and gotten to the same point.

the shy virgin dukes daughter and rough son of a whore who cannot speak their love to each other.

I spent a lot of the book wondering why the hero of the story niall falls for Diana. he seems to be incredibly tough on everyone else and Diana too initially (holding her to the same standards as everyone else) but then suddenly everything she does is magic and brave and tough.
