Morgan Sinclair needs a tolerable husband. Quickly! A season away with London’s elite Bon Ton should help. Her aunt, the duchess, will make Morgan the perfect debutante. Many lessons are necessary first, but her future depends on it. Morgan and her charismatic dancing master, the Earl of Wellington, find themselves in a situation neither of them expected. Love.
The notorious Kingston’s have a turbulent past of mystery and betrayal, but Morgan Sinclair has her own secrets looming. The couple must learn to navigate unprecedented obstacles…
…if their relationship is to survive

Once again Stacy Von Haegert has written a historical romance that kept my attention. This follows the life of Edward and Morgan. I am seeing a preference in how Von Haegert writes her female characters, strong and independent. Just the way I like the women in a story. I love how (so far) none of her females feel as though they have to follow society norms in the time period of the stories. Morgan is a little bit more compliant, but I gather that it is more due to her circumstances than to her true nature. I enjoyed diving into Under His Guidance and getting to be among that world again. Edward is a oxymoron of a self proclaimed bachelor. Watching him unwittingly fall for Morgan, when he wants his freedoms is entertaining. The mysteries and conflicts from Under His Protection (book1) continues in book 2, which greatly pleased me. I was invested in book 1 and that held true in Under His Guidance. The ending of this book has me patiently awaiting the release of the next book. If you have ever held doubts abut historical romance, let me tell you this is the series to take a chance on. As I wrote in my review of the first book, Con Haegert has modernized the way the characters talk, to me this made it much easier to read and just enjoy. I hope you gamble on this series an author. You wont be disappointed.

Under His Protection by Stacy Von Haegert

I’m going to be very honest here. I do not usually read Historical Romance. It’s just not my cup of tea. So to say Under His Protection by Stacy Von Haegert caught me by surprise is an understatement. Von Haegert brought to life a beautifully written story. I loved her main characters and side characters. Greyland, the female main character, is unlike most historical females. She is free spirited, intelligent, outspoken, and quite the handful. I fell in love with […]

Review: The Marquess Who Adored Me by Rachelle Stevenson

The Marquess Who Adored Me is the second book in The Men Who Revere Us series. I stumbled on to this author. So when it was suggested that I read her book I agreed. I haven’t read historical romance since I was in my early teen years, but figured why not. Rachelle Stevensen is new to the indie scene, with this being only her second book. Stevensen’s cover reminded me of the “Fabio” days. The pirate ships, handsome swashbuckler, and […]
