Ordered to guard, forbidden to love

When elite soldier Finn Huber was released from his duties to his king and crown prince to start a new life in Regency England, he never dreamed his first position would be bodyguard to a governess whose sweet nature calls to him. He fell for a lady he was guarding years ago, with devastating consequences. He learned the hard way that bodyguards must be vigilant, valiant, and in control, always. Loving who they guard is strictly forbidden.

Governess Abigail Winchester beguiles her charges with warm smiles and gentle words, but her composure is hard won. Someone knows about her connection to a family scandal and is bent on destroying her. How kind of her benefactress, Lady Belfort, to hire Finn to keep her safe as she hides at the lady’s country estate. He is everything a lady might admire, but she cannot give in to her growing feelings for him. Finn’s honor and her past can never be reconciled.

But Lady Belfort and her cat, Fortune, are renowned for making matches-in employment and in romance. With their help, Finn and Abigail must uncover who is threatening her and stop the villain before it’s too late. In the end, will honor or love prevail?

If you like warm, witty historical romances, with a touch of intrigue, then you’ll love this historical romance by an award-winning, bestselling author.:

Hott Review of Never Beguile a Bodyguard:

Never Beguile a Bodyguard is just the book I needed. Although we’d not gotten to know either Abigail or Finn well in the previous books it was wonderful to have them featured in Regina Scott’s latest novel. This sweet romance and Ms Scott’s enthralling but peaceful writing were exactly the calming optimistic focus I needed to get me through this season.

I absolutely adore these tales featuring Meredith and her cat, Fortune. They’re a dynamic duo that you won’t want to miss.

Abigail is a wonderful honest person with a secret. Following her through Never Beguile a Bodyguard was fun because she felt guilty about her secret and didn’t know who to trust… Or why she was being followed. I loved watching her learn to trust those who would become her friends and stand up to those who didn’t deserve her loveliness.

As with the others, Never Beguile a Bodyguard is a completely stand-alone story that you could grab in any order… But why would you want to? Trust me, start at the beginning and enjoy every moment of this series of series’

Author Bio:

Regina Scott

Regina Scott started writing novels in the third grade. Thankfully for literature as we know it, she didn’t actually sell her first novel until she had learned a bit more about writing. Since her first Regency romance was published in 1998, her stories have traveled the globe, with translations in many languages including Dutch, German, Italian, and Portuguese. She is now the author of more than 50 works of warm, witty historical romance.

She and her husband of 30 years reside in Washington State on the way to Mt. Rainier. Regina Scott has driven four in hand, learned to fence, sailed on a tall ship, and dressed as a Regency dandy, all in the name of research, of course.
