Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Sabrina Jeffries features an irresistible family in a series to savor, as the grown children of a thrice-married dowager duchess piece together the stories of their fathers - while pursuing passions of their own....

Lady Gwyn Drake has long protected her family's reputation by hiding an imprudent affair from her youth. But when her former suitor appears at Armitage Hall, manhandling the heiress and threatening to go public with her secrets, it's Gwyn who needs protecting. Her twin brother, Thorn, hires Joshua Wolfe, the estate's gamekeeper, to keep her safe in London during her debut. As a war hero, Joshua feels obligated to fulfill the assignment he has accepted. But as a man, it's torment to be so very close to the beauty he's fought to ignore....

With handsome Joshua monitoring her every move, Gwyn would prefer to forget both the past and the parade of money-seeking bachelors at her coming out. But Joshua is unmoved by her attempts at flirtation, and the threat of blackmail still hangs over her. With danger closing in, Gwyn must decide which is the greater risk: deflecting a scoundrel's attempts to sabotage her - or revealing her whole heart to the rugged bodyguard she can't resist....

Nice new Historical Fiction writer, but have read

It is nice to have a new Historical Fictional/ Romance writer with series of books. Although Ms. Jefferies story line is rather predictable. I did like that her main male character was not perfect, an had a disability, which would have been common at the time period that this story took place , and it made him a more believable character. The main female character was as usual of the upper class, with her brother being a Duke, but she to was not of the normal run of the meal upper class damsel. Her past was more realistic and her problems made the the story more interesting.
I did find it totally unbelievable that a 30 year old woman would be have her first formal debut, which at time period would not have been believable.
I did enjoy the story, although as I've stated there were some glaring situations that would not have occurred in the upper class of English Society.
The Audible recording was okay at best. The female audible recorder voice was not very good at doing the male characters, but overall she was okay.

Highly recommend!

These are really great characters! Sabrina Jeffries does just a wonderful job with the hero, the heroine and all the other characters. Great plot, great character depth. And as always, a great narration.
