From realistic characters to a plot full of mystery and intrigue, this book is full of surprises. Susanne Dietze is a skilled storyteller. Her settings come to life through rich description, complementing the storyline perfectly. I was engaged from page one. Id give it a definite "two thumbs up". Looking forward to reading her other books soon!
ReginaF5 Stars Out Of 5Full of action and sweet romance!February 16, 2017ReginaFQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Reluctant Guardian really kept my attention from the first page to the very last. It was full of action and just the right romance. This was my first book I have read from Susie Dietze and I have to say she's a first-rate writer! I love her writing style. She kept this reader satisfied, happy, and engaged!
Gemma Lyfeld is as stubborn as the day is long. Gemmas nephews added humor to the story. I had to chuckle a few times at their antics. Boys will be boys! I can just imagine how my grandson will be when he is their age! And Tavin, ever the protector and guardian. So much like my loving husband. Tavin makes a great undercover agent even when he is distracted by Gemma!

KavRCanadaGender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Amazing!February 8, 2017KavRCanadaGender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Squuueaaallll!!! Regency, romance and intrigue all wrapped up together in one splendiferous story! I'm swoony and giddy and heart-palpitating over it all. Handsome, brooding hero who adopts his Scottish brogue when his emotions are deeply stirred. Be still my heart and scrape me off the floor! Phew! And his lady love also known as the irksome woman he has been charged with protecting. An independent heroine with a compassionate heart. Banter galore (and we all know how much I love witty dialogue -- especially in a Regency!) Intrigue and danger and a sweet faith thread about the true meaning of grace. It just doesn't get any better. Really.
MaryAnnORAge: 55-65Gender: Female5 Stars Out Of 5Regency drama and intrigueFebruary 7, 2017MaryAnnORAge: 55-65Gender: FemaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Set in England in 1817, Gemma Lyfeld has long dreamed of marriage to her childhood friend Hugh Beauchamp, but now these plans may be dashed. Will her fate be to remain with her brother and help care for her precious young nephews? When she encounters Tavin Knox, a friend of her brother-in-law, she is not impressed and resists his interference in her life. Gemma becomes a pawn in a dangerous game of intrigue, which includes smugglers and deceit. Considered past her prime, she longs for one pleasurable season in London. Her adventures there take her far beyond parties and tourist sites. Both Gemma and Tavin must also heal from trauma in their pasts. The skillful author weaves a fine story that sustains attention and heightens emotion as the reader keeps pace with these realistic characters. I thoroughly enjoyed this dramatic regency and look forward to more from her. I wish this story could continue. I received a copy from the author. All opinions are my own.
