Summary

Fiercely loyal to his friends and comrades, Ewan Mostyn is the toughest in a group of younger sons of nobility who met as soldiers and are now trying desperately to settle back into peaceful society. Ewan trusts his brawn more than his brains, but when he's offered a job watching the Duke of Ridlington's stubbornly independent daughter, he finds both are challenged.

Lady Lorraine wants none of her father's high-handed ways, and she'll do everything in her power to avoid her distressingly attractive bodyguard - until she lands herself in real trouble. Lorraine begins to see Ewan's protectiveness in a new light, and she can only hope that her stoic guardian will do for her what he's always done - fight for what he wants.

Contains mature themes.

Very good book!

This was a very good book. I really enjoyed it. Especially loved Ewan's character. He was a man of very few words, but they always meant something. I liked Lorrie too. Sometimes I wanted her to chill out, but then I got used to her character. They did make a great match.

There was a couple of twists and surprises that made the book better than just the normal romance which I liked very much. Some great dialogue, even though Ewan had less words than most. LOL

As for the narration, this was my first Victoria Aston listen and she did a great job. The men sounded like men and she read with emotion. She has a very nice reading voice too.

I am looking forward the the next book in this series.

I love Shana Galen’s books

A great new series by a fabulous author. I love Shana Galen’s book and this beginning of a new series is very good. I love Ewen. A big guy with few words and what seems to be dyslexia. Lady Lorraine does some dumb things but this is a book and I enjoyed reading it without psychoanalyzing her.

The narrator did a fine job. What kept this from being 5 stars is that it was a bit too long. And I like be long books so that’s difficult for me to state.

Bring on the next Survivor.

Too long but still enjoyable

I yearned to put on my editor’s hat and edit about 20 minutes from this book. It felt as though scenes were repeating and making points that had already been established. I did not need to be told and shown multiple times that the h talked a lot and the H could not read. Just show it as a natural part of the story.

Very very good

This is a very good story, I like the heroine spunk and hero’s fortitude. I thought the parents side reconciliation is also sweet. The narrator was quite good too.

Third son

This is a great story. Just goes to show that everyone need love no matter what upbringing you have. What job you do.
