Editorial Reviews


"With her signature spice, Michelle Griep takes us on a rollicking ride across Regency England in
The Noble Guardian. But beware! Just when you think you've met her most dashing hero yet, Captain Thatcher steals your heart. Add an endearing heroine who is equally adventurous and the wee gem that's been entrusted to their care, and you have all the makings of a fabulous finale to
The
Bow Street Runners series."


-Laura Frantz, author of
A Bound Heart



"
The Noble Guardian is full to the brim with rich details, delightful romance, and page-turning intrigue. Readers who enjoy Regency novels will fall in love with the strong but wounded hero, Samuel Thatcher, and the charming and spirited heroine, Abby Gilbert. The extra touch of suspense will keep readers up late turning pages until the satisfying ending."


-Carrie Turansky, award-winning author of
Across the Blue and
No Ocean Too Wide

"Griep puts a surprisingly fresh twist on the third installment of her Dickens-esque stories. Don't miss this charming tale of lost-and-found love!"
-Shannon McNear, RITA(R) nominee and author of The Cumberland Bride


"Packed with heart and hope, The Noble Guardian is sure to take historical romance fans on a journey they won't want to end. Endearing characters, a page-turning plot, vivid prose, and timeless truths make this novel a true pleasure to read.
-Jocelyn Green, award-winning author of Between Two Shores
