An heiress in distress and an earl in disgrace…
When heiress Violet Dunston escapes from an abduction, she finds an unlikely protector in Jack Warriner — a member of one of England’s most infamous families. Ensconced with mysterious Jack behind his manor’s walls, soon escape is the last thing on Letty’s mind!
Jack may be an earl, but his father’s exploits have left him with nothing to offer except a tarnished name. He’s turned his back on the ton, but with Letty tempting him day and night, he finds himself contemplating the unthinkable–a society marriage!
A Warriner to Protect Her is the first book in a new series by Virginia Heath. The series is called The Wild Warriners and is set around four brothers Jack, Jamie, Joe and Jacob. The Warriner boys live on a remote farm in Nottinghamshire and life on a farm was tough in 1813. They are trying to rebuild the reputation of the family that has been sullied with gambling, drinking, cheating and tragedy.
The story begins with a terrifying ordeal for young heiress Violet Dunston. She finds herself drugged and bound in a carriage heading for Gretna Green and her fate from thereon is fraught with danger. Violet sadly lost her parents a few years ago, she has been left a huge inheritance which is due to be released on her 21st birthday, just over a month away. She has become quite the catch in society with this inheritance looming. Violet manages to escape from the carriage and runs scared for her life. She stumbles across a lone horseman, Jack Warriner. Jack can see the fear in Violet’s eyes and can also see that she is badly hurt. Without any further hesitation he picks her up and caries her back to his farmhouse.
Jack’s brothers are shocked by this unexpected visitor but soon rally round caring for the forlorn young woman. Jack can sense fear still in the young woman and realises whoever she is afraid of could be closeby searching for her. He vows to protect her. Can Jack protect Violet from her kidnappers and keep her safe till she can collect her rightful inheritance?
I loved this story. It was deliciously moreish! The Warriner brothers had grown up under a cloud and were doing all they could to break free from this tarnish in their family history. The boys had grown up into strong handsome men and reminded me a little of The Musketeers, the bond they shared was unbreakable. A young beautiful woman suddenly in their household brought new challenges to Jack. He was struggling with his desire but his responsibility for the young woman was at the forefront of his mind.
A gorgeous Regency romance with swoon worthy male characters, all four brother would set your heart a flutter. A daring, dramatic historical romance that is deliciously moreish 5/5*
