Lady Evelyn Montgomery, only daughter of the Baron of Rayne, detests the thought of marriage. She will never allow a man to control her. Crushed by the constraints of propriety, she steals away from the safety of the keep and stumbles onto a plot designed to stir up trouble between England and Scotland. When a mysterious hooded man saves her, she fights her attraction to him as they join forces to hunt down a traitor and save her father. But can she save her heart?
Gabriel is a Shadow Guardian. Hiding beneath his black cowl and blending into the night, he is sworn to protect the Baron’s daughter. The spirited Lady Evelyn is far from the delicate flower he anticipated. She makes herself crystal clear, no man will possess her. Can he prove to her that love can be more than just possession? Or will the traitor they seek tear them apart forever?
Great story and characters. Love Lady Evelyn she's spirited and tough and doesn't want to be held back by a man, she wants to be treated like one not a wallflower. Sexy as hell Gabriel he's a guardian, a protector, he protects and loves Lady Evelyn first from afar then when they meet sparks fly, he wants her heart and soul but doesn't want her to change a thing, he loves her wild spirit she's his warrior princess. Love Alexander, he's also sexy and a protector and he's smitten but focused on the job at hand, I can't wait for his and Madeline's story. Thought the story was entertaining and sex scene was hot. It's a different take on a highlander type story, I liked it a lot. 4 stars
