Publisher’s Description:

She spent her entire life in her clan’s castle being taught to be polite and civilized, being prepared for possible royalty, made to be the perfect lady of the castle. She was bred and raised for a single purpose—to be married off for her Laird father’s own political advantage.

When it is rumored that a neighboring clan is plotting to assassinate the Laird of Aldrich, Camy Crestwell’s family hires a bodyguard, Mathou Jameson, a rugged dirty highlander from the North with no manners and no filter, to hunt down the assassin.

Camy finds her prim and proper upbringing rudely disrupted by the rough highlander, but her heart is kindled with a surprising excitement when she is tasked with showing him around the castle. Perhaps having no filter and no discretion isn’t so bad after all—at least it’s a change from the mundane.

But when Mathou fails to make satisfactory progress finding the assassin, he finds the Laird turning the tables on him. If only Camy’s family knew what Mathou knows—the assassin’s target is not the Laird of Aldrich, but rather someone who has now become dear to Mathou….

Her Father’s Protector is a 30,000 word standalone novella with no cliffhangers.


My Thoughts:

This short novel/novella is not your usual romance read…

It has no Happily Ever After!

Camy, the laird’s daughter has thus far been allowed by her father to not marry. He had at one time chosen a man to betroth her to but suddenly he backed out of that arrangement. Now it appears that he needs someone to guard his back because there are rumors that someone wants him dead.

He hires a mercenary to guard him.

Mathou is the man who has been hired to guard Camy’s father. Much to her surprise, particularly after their first meeting, Camy finds herself attracted to him.
Will Mathou discover the truth about who the assassin intends to kill?

I gave this sad tale with a surprising turn of events 4.25 of 5.0 stars for storyline and characterization and a sensual rating of 3.25 of 5.0 flames.
Be forewarned, this book doesn’t lead to your usual happy ending.

I received a complimentary digital copy of this title from the author to read. This in no way affected my opinion of this novella which I read and reviewed voluntarily.
