A Reader's Opinion: THE LADY'S PROTECTOR by Emma Prince
Highland Bodyguards, Book One
A READER'S OPINION
Scottish Highlands 1314 One man's burning desire to protect and love a woman means he's willing to betray his honour to King and country! Ansel Sutherland is an elite warrior and one of Robert the Bruce's right hand men, having fought numerous battles by his side, and is a man of honor and integrity. When he's tasked with a mission of protecting the bastard son of the hated English Earl of Lancaster, Ansel takes his mission to heart. His devotion to King and country is legendary . . . after all he is the only one of the group of men who hasn't succumbed to love and married. He's not like them . . . or is he? Lady Isolda of Embleton has mystery written all over her with her stiff backbone and English manners, but all is not as it seems. Hiding behind the title of "Lady" has helped to keep her secrets hidden. Vulnerable and alone, she needs to keep the illusion of security and a strong front, but when her life and the life of the only person that means everything to her in the world, is threatened, she can not reveal the truth, even to the handsome barbarian sent to protect her.
If only the attraction she feels for the rugged Highlander wasn't so hard to resist, but her wanton desires are her downfall. Ansel is drawn to Isolda and can't keep his hands to himself, and the attraction is mutual. She's in his blood. His honour will be tested and making her his own is inevitable. But with love comes trust. Can Isolda trust Ansel with her secret or will it be their destruction? Can this honour-bound Highlander be the protector of her heart? One sensational roller coaster ride of emotions after another. Emma Prince is a phenomenal writer!
