NEVER ADMIRE AN ADVENTURER by Regina Scott, Reviewed by Paula Shreckhise #ReleaseDay


Another charming story about romance for a Batavarian guard or two. Lady Belfort, is finding positions for the guards who opted to remain in England rather than return to their homeland. Tanner is hired as a bodyguard for Mr. Hewitt, a rich businessman, who has been receiving threats. His daughter Julia is of marriageable age, so the ruse is that Tanner pose as her fiancé.

With highwaymen thrown into the mix, along with busybody neighbors, a matchmaking cat, and a balloon demonstration, this is a delightful tale of Regency England re-invented. I especially liked Mrs. Daring, companion to Julia, who quietly gives her two cents worth with pithy remarks. And of course Fortune, the cat, who reads the motives of all she meets.

I am looking forward to book three in this series.

BackCover Blurb:
A pretend engagement puts her life and his heart on the line

Kristof Tanner grew up dreaming of glorious adventures far beyond the little kingdom of Batavaria. He’s followed his king and crown prince across Europe to England, but he never expected his first position there to be guarding the daughter of a wealthy businessman, who doesn’t seem to have a care in the world. Still, it’s hard not to see adventure calling in Julia Hewett’s warm brown eyes.

Julia has been fretting under her father’s demands for years. She won’t allow him to dictate a husband, especially when he insists no less than a duke will do. So, when her father refuses to listen to her pleas, she concocts the most unsuitable engagement she can imagine—to her bodyguard. If the charming Tanner plays along, they might both get what they want.

But it soon becomes apparent that someone is stalking Julia, intent on her downfall. Tanner and Julia must work together to uncover the culprit and save her reputation and his. In doing so, they may discover that the greatest adventure of all is falling in love.

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