HE WOULD DO ANYTHING TO PROTECT HER.
Even MARRY her...
The son of a cold-hearted duke, Nicholas St. Mauer isn’t one to involve himself in society…or open his own heart to anyone. But driven by honor, the reclusive Earl of Somerton feels obliged to keep a watchful eye on Lady Emma Cavensham. She possesses a penchant for passions unbecoming a woman that finds Nick in constant peril of losing his well-structured solitude. She even dared kiss Nick once—an utterly unladylike, and delightful, lapse… Emma can’t deny the appeal of the earl’s attention, and occasional affection, but she has no need for a man. There are worse fates than spinsterhood, as Emma knows too well. She still mourns the loss of her dear friend Lena, and is determined to prove Lena’s husband responsible for her death before he lures another innocent woman into a brutal marriage. But as Emma pursues her prey, a compromising moment upends all her plans. Now, with gossip swirling and her reputation in tatters, Nick may be the only man brave enough to join in Emma’s cause. . .and fight for her heart. (from Night Owl Reviews)

Emma doesn't need a man in her life. But she can't get rid of the feeling she gets when the Earl is around, but Nicholas St. Mauer, the Earl is a loner. He doesn't socialize and he sure doesn't want anything to do with love. The Earl may soon find he's not a loner any more. He feels he is obligated to keep watch over Lady Emma Cavesham. She isn't your typical woman. She is different. She likes doing things that shock, very unladylike. Emma knows that staying unwed isn't anything compared to what could happen. She has some other things on her agenda at the moment. Her best friend is dead and she is bound and determined to prove that Lena's death was the cause of her brutal husband. She's not about to let another innocent woman end up the same way at the hands of this dangerous man. But while seeking the truth, something happens that causes Emma's reputation to be at stake. What will happen now? Will the Earl come to her rescue and not only help her bring justice but find himself not a loner any more?
The author gives you two characters who are very different. The Earl is reserved and Lady Emma is far from that. They both want to protect something. The Earl is protecting his heart and Emma is protecting innocent women. I liked that the author gave the reader a woman, who back in the day, was to be a lady above all else, and Emma was a lady, but an unconventional lady for the day. It was nice to see chivalry for a change. The Earl, would protect Emma no matter what, even if he had to marry her. But will that happen? The author builds suspense as the pages are turned. So many questions need answering. I found the characters to be interesting and very well described. You could picture the Earl, handsome and dashing keeping his distance and yet there to protect Emma. Emma, you could see her being dressed very lovely in her gowns and yet seeing the fierceness and her determination that most women didn't show.
I received a copy of this book from the author and Night Owl Reviews and voluntarily decided to review it.
I would give this book 4 STARS.
