in book 2 of the highland hearts series, lady evelyn's highland protector, the aforementioned lady evelyn hunt has never purposely sought scandal. but after her betrothed left her at the altar and ruined her repuation with spurious lies it seems to have a way of finding her. when she takes a berak from a bridal party shopping spree and enters a local bookstore, the last thing she expects is to be the key witness to murder and the one person who can reveal the truth about where some ancient scottish heirlooms are hidden.

not that she realizes any of this. gerard mcmasters was chasing down a heartless murderer. he finally had her in his sights only to find himself momentarily distracted by lady evelyn. that slight delay is all it took for his quarry to slip by him. knowing that lady evelyn will be the infamous mrs. smythe's next target, gerard isn't surprised to learn that he is being cast as her bodyguard.

lady evelyn is wary of him but also intrigued. she tries her best to resist the highlander's charm but it proves difficult, especially when he wears a kilt. there's just something about a man in a kilt.

while gerard is sent to protect evie, the truth is she can fight her own battles, and she does. her past has taught her to trust her instincts and stand up for herself. she would do anything to protect those she loves and that loyalty is rewarded. because they would also do anything for her. even stay away if they believed that would keep her safe. gerard has loved and lost before, so keeping those he loves protected is important to him. to keep evie safe he'd do anything, even leave her behind.

what he needs to learn, as tennyson has, that it is better to have love and lost than to never have loved at all.

**lady evelyn's highland protector will publish on november 27, 2017. i received an advance reader copy courtesy of netgalley/entangled publishing (amara) in exchange for my honest review.
