    Exceptional Regency by an Exceptional Inspirational Fiction AuthorI received an advance copy PDF from Susie Dietze upon my reuest I am under no obligation to give a review I've loved all of Ms Dietze's other stories and this book was also wonderful Initially subtle the spiritual thread weaves stronger as the novel progressesGemma is being held emotional hostage by her narcissistic and toxic SIL Her love for her two darling nephews keeps her in place as she awaits a forthcoming marriage proposal Then Tavin Knox interrupts her life turning everything around Highly recommend this delicious read

    Suuueaaallll Regency romance and intrigue all wrapped up together in one splendiferous story I'm swoony and giddy and heart palpitating over it all Handsome brooding hero who adopts his Scottish brogue when his emotions are deeply stirred Be still my heart and scrape me off the floor Phew And his lady love also known as the irksome woman he has been charged with protecting An independent heroine with a compassionate heart Banter galore and we all know how much I love witty dialogue especially in a Regency Intrigue and danger and a sweet faith thread about the true meaning of grace It just doesn't get any better Really

    For starters there are moments of delightfully wry wit that often took me by surprise and had me chuckling Besides the subtle wit Tavin and Gemma have fabulous banter between them banter that will keep a smile on your face and have you falling head over heels for them in no time Speaking of falling head over heels Tavin He’s Scottish I also sorta see him as Henry Cavill but that’s not really important right now When Tavin’s emotions are running especially deep he slips into a Scottish brogue and ohhhhh be still my book boyfriend collecting heart How Gemma managed not to remain in a constant state of swoon I do not know But Gemma for her part holds her own marvelously well as a heroine Independent prone to doing what she pleases which drives bodyguard Tavin crazy compassionate and warm hearted with a sweet and sincere faithBottom Line The Reluctant Guardian by Susanne Dietze belongs on your bookshelf Whether you’re a fan of Regencies or well plotted suspense intrigue or just a fan of swoony romance put this on your must reads list A fan necessitating hero a spunky heroine nail biting action a delicious love story perfectly timed humor and tender faith It doesn’t get much betterI voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book see my full review at Reading Is My SuperPower

    I do enjoy discovering a new author Sometimes I do wonder if I will like their work however Susanne Dietze has written a perfectly wonderful book and I most assuredly enjoyed every moment of it The Reluctant Guardian is Dietze's first novel and it is a mighty fine one Set in Regency England and Scotland with good dose of greatly done suspense it captured my attention from the very first and I found it difficult to put down Susanne Dietze has created characters that are completely believable and a fine blend of romance and mystery The repartee between the two main characters is wonderfully done as well The spiritual aspect is right on target I thoroughly enjoyed this book and I will definitely read of this author's workI was given a complimentary copy of this book My review is my own honest opinion

    There is one true Sovereign and He is not youThe self proclaimed king of smugglers the Sovereign has inadvertently crossed paths with an innocent maiden Gemma Lyfield; placing her very life and that of her beloved family in jeopardy Jilted by her's family's match for her future Gemma reluctantly puts her trust in a man whom she knows very little about a friend of her brother in law Tavin Knox a man well acuainted with covert activity Tavin is certain that since Gemma can identity her assailant that revenge will be sure and swift; so he convinces Gemma to travel to London for a postponed season in society where he can keep a watchful eye while maintaining his standing as a government agent Barely tolerating each other in the beginning Emma and Gavin slowly warm to each other but lives are at stake regrets must be absolved and a country's freedoms hang in the balance; above all these two engaging characters must learn to forgive; themselves each other their family their friends Ultimately Emma and Gavin must trust their God for whom There is nothing is too hard for Thee It's a magnanimous story written within the pages of a somewhat small book creating the perfect blend of mystery history and enthralling romanceI received a copy of this book from the author The opinions expressed are entirely my own

    see full review at wwwjoyofreadingwebwordpresscomThis delightful story has all the elements that I love A swoon worthy hero a strong capable heroine tender moments that make you sigh in contentment a touch of mystery and intrigue that kept me turning pages and most of all threads of faith that remind us that forgiveness isn’t something we can earn it is a gift we need only acceptThese characters are so well written that I felt like I was in the story with my friends From early on I found myself invested in their story and swept away with the engaging storyline If you haven’t read this book yet I’d encourage you to find a copyGemma Lyfeld isn’t a shrinking violet She knows what she wants and isn’t afraid to go after it While she does have one fear she faces it with determination I found myself cheering for her I appreciated her spunk and her tenacityTavin Knox is a government agent he isn’t interested in attending parties rubbing shoulders with the upper crust and he certainly isn’t interested in dancing or escorting a lovely lady around London Especially not one who takes chances and distracts him from his jobJust when you think you have the mystery solved new facts come to light that will keep you guessing and turning pages I give this captivating story 5 stars and encourage you to take time to read this story I’m going to find stories from Susanne Dietze to share with youI purchased a copy of this book I was not reuired to write a positive review The thoughts and options I have expressed are my own

    Smugglers the London season and plenty of growing attraction make The Reluctant Guardian a uick read because you won’t want to put it downAfter an expected proposal doesn’t happen Gemma Lyfield’s only goal is to experience one season in London before returning to her brother’s home to care for her two nephews It’s her lot in life and she accepts it with grace and humility But when she runs into trouble while out on a walk the party in London gains an unexpected member None other than Tavin Knox a spy who is determined to infiltrate the smuggler ringAs the story progresses Gemma grows from agitation at Tavin’s presence to recognition and appreciation of his protection The two become friends sharing past pains future plans and biggest regrets Susanne Dietz does a wonderful job of giving these two characters events in their past which they carry guilt for but react to with very different responses And the entire time there’s the added element of danger as the suspect gets bolder in his attempts to capture and uiet Gemma permanently Then there's some fantastic interactions between Gemma and Tavin Almost every time these two get thrown together they're arguing about somethingDisclosure statementI receive complimentary books from publishers publicists andor authors including NetGalley I am not reuired to write positive reviews The opinions I have expressed are my own I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR Part 255

    Years ago before I learned about Christian fiction novels I was a fan of Julie Garwood and her ilk especially when they hosted a Scottish character I've moved away from her and have always been on the lookout for great historical romances Books that would awe meSince historical romance isn't my preferred genre I am a harsher critiue compared to many romance readers out thereSo it was a delightful surprise to pick up Susanne Dietze's book The Reluctant Guardian The story of Gemma and Tavin was complex and yet simple The story was multilayered and yet straightforward As you can see the plot and romance created an uniue juxtapositionThis was far beyond what I thought it would be and I found myself reading it for a second time to ensure that I didn't miss anything The book is just as good on the second read throughThe description of the settings the multi faceted characters and the humorous banter made this than an enjoyable read It allow me to escape into a far distant world and live a life of love and adventureSusanne Dietze has uickly become one of my favorite authors And The Reluctant Guardian has been one of my favorite romances
