In an effort to curry favor in as many directions as possible, the King has sent Ansel into England to protect an English nobleman’s bastard son, but when Ansel arrives, the boy has already been hidden away and he finds he must content himself with ensuring the protection of the boy’s mother, Isolda, who they find may be in just as much danger as the boy himself. Great story with an attraction that simmers from the very beginning. I wished at times that Isolda hadn’t been so reticent to trust Ansel, but I understand she was struggling with her past and the distrust it left in her. Ansel was a steady rock, that was impossible to keep from loving. Fast-paced read, and I look forward to reading about the next Highland Bodyguard in Heart’s Thief!
