If you're a fan of sweeter, romantic Harlequin Historical reads, you owe it to yourself to pick up "Major Westhaven's Unwilling Ward" by Emily Bascom. This was my first read by this author, but I was caught up in the well-paced story of a man and a woman, both fighting their own demons, who discover that being loved for oneself is the greatest gift.

Lily must marry. There's really no other viable solution since her brother died in the war and she can no longer support herself and her loyal maid.

Really enjoyed this one.

Miss Lily is alone in the world since her brother death in the war. She has struggled not to let society know the dire straits she is in financially. She wants to marry for love but things are getting desperate so maybe she will have to settle for security. She has to do something since she will be losing her home soon as well.

Daniel made a promise to Lily's brother to become her gaurdian but he was grievously injured and wanted nothing more to do with anyone. He would ra
I'd say 3 1/2. I wish we could give 1/2 stars!

Overall not bad and an enjoyable way to spend a few hours. Light guardian-ward romance with a beauty and the beast vibe. Nothing taxing or off the beaten path and a HEA is never in doubt.

Probably the best part is having the Yankees referred to as rebels in the Revolutionary War scenes.
This was a fun Harlequin historical, and just what I needed after a couple of lackluster Viking romances that almost put me in a reading slump. Sometimes you need the tried and true, and these category romances often provide for me that warm, fuzzy feeling, like watching old reruns of Cheers....where everybody knows your name...

Emily Bascom started reading Mills & Boon novels at the age of fourteen—which gave her a somewhat unrealistic idea of what to expect from boys her age, but stood her in good stead in the long run. When she was a child she wanted to be Robin Hood or d'Artagnan. Now she wants to be Éowyn from Lord of the Rings.

Emily lives in London, but dreams of moving to Uganda and building herself a house by
