HE CAN GUARD HERLady Phoebe Batten is pretty, vivacious, and yearning for a social life befitting the sister of a powerful duke. But because she is almost completely blind, her overprotective brother insists that she have an armed bodyguard by her side at all times-the very irritating Captain Trevillion.FROM EVERY DANGERCaptain James Trevillion is proud, brooding, and cursed with a leg injury from his service in the King's dragoons. Yet he can still shoot and ride like the devil, so watching over the distracting Lady Phoebe should be no problem at all-until she's targeted by kidnappers.BUT PASSION ITSELFCaught in a deadly web of deceit, James must risk life and limb to save his charge from the lowest of cads-one who would force Lady Phoebe into a loveless marriage. But while they're confined to close quarters for her safekeeping, Phoebe begins to see the tender man beneath the soldier's hard exterior . . . and the possibility of a life-and love-she never imagined possible.

My review contains spoilers and they're mostly my thoughts as I went with the book... Okay, is it only me? I’m increasingly having this feeling that the Maiden Lane books are becoming shorter by installment. Yes, I’m a little bit unhappy about it, only because I’m such a fan of the series that I end...
