Happy Friday, reader friends! Today’s featured title is my first blind tour (like a blind date with a book) from JustRead Publicity Tours! Check out the first line and my review of The Reluctant Guardian by Susanne Dietze below, then open the book nearest you and share the first line!
The Reluctant Guardian by Susanne Dietze
“With a furtive pat, Gemma Lyfeld blotted her nerve-damp palms on her white muslin gown.”
This Regency romance has just the right balance of suspense and banter to keep readers on the edge of their seats. The weight of society and family expectations has exceedingly complicated Gemma and Tavin’s lives individually creating a delightful tangle at the intersection of their paths.
Gemma’s compassionate nature and tender mother’s heart for her nephews make her an easy-to-love heroine. The romance thread evolves beautifully from brother(in-law)’s friend with a healthy dose of antagonism to a determined protector. Once Tavin finally began slipping into his Scottish brogue I was a complete goner in the best readerly way!
The characters are well developed and authentic individuals learn to trust one another and lean on their faith as they make peace with their past and discern God’s will for their future. I’d be delighted to follow these characters in future stories.
I received a complimentary copy of this book from the publisher and was under no obligation to post a review. The opinions expressed are my own.
