Emily's father hires a Bow Street officer to protect his daughter while he is away.
Nicholas Brentwod takes the job because he needs the money to care for his dying sister. But his new responsibility is no easy task. As Emily wishes to use this opportunity to assert her independence, while Brentwood wants to keep her safe.
For the first half of the book Emily was very self absorbed, she spends her days shopping and scheming about how to catch a rich husband, but underneath it all she does care for those nearest her.
I really liked Nicholas from the start, he is observant, decisive, and confident. He is good at what he does and searches for clues as to what is going on, trying to be one step ahead of the people threatening Emily's life.
Action packed, and fast moving, with an intricate plot, and dashing hero, there is little to dislike in this regency debut that keeps one guessing until the very end.
Overall, an enjoyable read. With great characters, and while I didn't especially care for Emily at first, I liked her journey and came to like her by the end. A great book for regency fans!
