Abandoned & Protected: The Marquis' Tenacious Wife is a phenomenal historical romance by Bree Wolf. Ms. Wolf has once again impressed me with her story-telling abilities. Abandoned & Protected is a well-written book furnished with a stellar cast of characters. Five-year-old Henrietta is in the home when her abusive father murders her mother and then himself. Connor is the future Marquis of Rodridge and the new chief of clan Brunwood and meets Henrietta on his way to London to claim his father's titles. Connor and Henrietta's story is packed with everything a historical romance should have, drama, action, humor, steamy sex and suspense. I loved this book from cover to cover and look forward to my next book by Bree Wolf. Abandoned & Protected is book 4 of the Love's Second Chance Series but can be read as a standalone. This is a complete book, not a cliff-hanger.
