Masquerading as an American, Eallair, a Guardian Steward from another world, is searching Victorian England for the kidnapped mate of a fellow Guardian. When he meets Miss Harriet Cartwright, he knows her for the spirited, intelligent mate he has longed to find.

Since the death of their parents, Harriet has used her intelligence and sharp tongue to guard her sister from fortune hunters, but now that Prudence is close to choosing a husband, Harriet can consider her own future–one hopefully filled with adventure. When she meets Eallair, an American rancher who likes to travel and isn’t put off by her outspokenness, she is intrigued.

But before Harriet and Eallair can explore their attraction, she and her sister are kidnapped. While Eallair scours the countryside for them, Harriet discovers Eallair’s off-world origins. Now she must decide: just how much adventure does she want in her future?

 

Review:  Eallair is sent on assignment to find a guradians mate. What he didn’t know was he would find his mate in the process. How was he going to do his job plus try to get his mate to love him? That was something he needs to decide on. Harriet just wants to get her sister married so she can go off and travel. She doesn’t talk and act like all young ladies should so imagine her surprise when she finally meets Eallair and he isn’t after her sister but her. She doesn’t know what to think about having a man like her because she is smart and doesn’t take anything from anyone.

Guess what I did again? I started reading this book before I realized that it was the third book in the series. To say that I was a little lost is down playing it. I wish I had read the first book so that I knew what I was reading about. I don’t know what theses people are. That isn’t the authors fault just mine. It was a great short story and I liked what I read. It was something a little different. Just having people feel a connection and also getting kidnapped in the process. I really don’t know what is going to happen next. I hope that there is more stories coming out for this series. The ending had a cliff hanger and I really want to find out more.

So if you want to read this series please make sure that you read them in order and don’t start with book three like I did. You will be lost and feeling like you are really feel that you are missing something. It was well written and the author has a great imagination. I would just like to know how she came up with the name of the planet they are from and some of the names. I couldn’t even imagine how to say Eallair. It was a sweet story that all ages could read. It was also an adventure of having to escape. So I will be having to find the first two books of this series to read. That way I will know what I am missing out on and hopefully figure out more about the people I am reading about.

So I will leave you with the warning to read the series in order and you will love the series and know what is going on.
