The Gallant Guardian Free read ✓ 6 Å A beautiful orphan girl resents the intrusion of a wealthy lord sent to protect her and her younger brother After all they could certainly look after themselves much better than any bachelor nobleman Her fiercely independent nature is soon tamed by his charm and dashing good looks wearing her defenses downVes much better than any bachelor nobleman Her fiercely independent nature is soon tamed by his charm and dashing good looks wearing her defenses down until. Maximillian Stanforth Maruess of Lydon is shocked to receive an imperious summons by his new ward Lady Charlotte Winterbourne for he did not know he had a ward let alone two wards as Charlotte's letter suggests Not wanting to be bothered with children Max allows his solicitor to deal with the situation until Charlotte shows up on his doorstep and Max discovers she's not a child but an intrepid young woman who is determined to keep her slimy relatives from locking away her simple brother and taking over the estate Max decides to visit Harcourt and his wards and takes a liking to young William and bonds with the boy over their shared love of horses Charlotte too intrigues Max and he is awed by how she has been able to care for her brother and look after the estate for her long absent father Max unused to any any sort of family feeling is touched by the devotion the siblings have for one another and finds himself captivated by Charlotte and anxious to protect her body and soul However Charlotte is not used to help and has a hard time accepting Max's loving attention While the story's ending is predictable the plot reveals depth than most Regency Romances At first it seemed like the story was going to be cliched because of the wording and plot situations but once I got into it I found myself feeling for the characters The backstory in this novel is rather sad and I found myself nearly in tears by the end Max's way of showing Charlotte that they are meant to be together would have won me over This is an unusual story and I recommend it to those who like substance in their Regencies

The only feeling that remains is her desire for him both in her body and soulbut can their love survive the possible scandal their passion will surely ignite. I was hoping that I would find a really charming classic regency here something like Joan Wolf or something but instead I was just bored bored bored Nothing offensive or problematic really but it just kept going in a vague Austen ish pastiche without the wit or charm

An uber sweet chaste Regency romance that I appreciated all the having recently finished the horror that was Karen Robards' Forbidden Love The Gallant Guardian by Evelyn Richardson is a similar guardian ward story that the Regency romance genre is saturated with but it is really one of the better ones that I have read Fans of traditional HR with low angst and a real sense of the historical setting will enjoy this The emotional build up between the protagonists was slowly and realistically stoked giving us a conclusion that while it lacked the fireworks and swashbuckling that some HRs thrive on was nevertheless deeply satisfying
