Lady 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 danger
Captain 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 itself
Caught 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.

Inspiring Romance Perfectly Imperfect Characters
Any additional comments?
This book was so very good. It is not often you get a romance with handicapped characters playing the hero and not the victim. Ms Hoyt is a go to for me when selecting historical romance. This book was one of my favorites.....Loved both the characters and romance was believable.

This book is well written, and satisfying. I love how Elizabeth Hoyt writes characters that are so straight-laced, but are secretly passionate. Trevilian's integrity makes me love him even more.
Her approach to Phoebe's situation is also refreshing. Though you feel for her, you never pity her. She is as strong as every other heroine.
I'm so happy Ashford McNabb is back! Honestly, I had to grit my teeth through that first book without her. If it weren't for my love of Elizabeth Hoyt's writing, I would have had to miss Megs' story. Fortunately, the AudioGods heard my prayers!
