The Noble Guardian Reviews

  • Dana Michael

    The Noble Guardian is one of the best books I have read by this author. I have enjoyed all of her books but this one just stood out to me. I loved this romantic story. It had lots of action, and awesome characters. Especially little Emma. The hero is a bow street runner and is a brooding captain who has lived a hard life. The heroine is a lovely, naive, yet spunky young woman looking for an ever lasting love. The chemistry between them is evident from the first time they meet. I loved it!!

    At last! Michelle Griep gives us Samuel Thatcher's story in her Bow Street Runners trilogy. When I first met this man in previous books, I knew he had a story to tell and knew it would be a good one. I was wrong. It was a great one. When I saw the cover some time back, that feeling was simply reinforced.

    Abigail Gilbert has been betrothed to a baronet, but must travel a long journey to his ancestral home to marry him. She is more than ready to leave a family who has no use for her. A family that can't even be bothered to give her a manservant to travel with her on a dangerous journey. And danger does indeed come, in the form of highwaymen.

    Captain Samuel Thatcher arrives just in time to save Abby from said highwaymen. He despises his job and is hoping to retire and buy land and become a farmer, far away from crime and death. Abby asks him to escort her on her journey and he agrees only when she offers him a great deal of money. He can buy his property and retire from pursuing criminals. However, one of those criminals, the most vicious sort, is after him and nothing will stop this man from seeing Thatcher die. But Samuel has promised to keep Abby safe and he intends to keep that promise. He will be tested down to his last nerve in doing so, though.

    Michelle Griep is a huge favorite of mine. Her books just get devoured here. When I open one and begin to read, I lose track of time and everything around me until I finish it. But … I want to race toward the end and I also want to slow down and savor every moment. So....I end up rereading many passages again and again, highlighting and writing in the margins. Griep manages somehow to capture each character in so much detail that they feel as if you're riding along in the coach with them in the storms, battling the highwaymen and feeling every emotion in their hearts. And her spiritual themes are what some might call simple and direct, but they are very, very profound. I loved every moment of it and now I wish I could read it all over again. Samuel Thatcher is the epitome of a noble guardian and a mighty fine hero! Highly recommended.

    My thanks to Barbour Publishing for a copy of this book via Net Galley. All opinions expressed here are entirely my own. No positive review was expected and no compensation received.

    This BOOK!

    This AUTHOR!

    Can I possibly give this book 100 stars? No, only 5? Well it deserves 100+ stars.

    The last book in the Bow Street Runners series, I am sorry to see it end.

    I have read the other books in the series but this does work well as a stand alone as some back story is shared in books 2 and 3.

    I could not turn the pages fast enough in this book, it was love at first sentence for me.

    I was thoroughly engrossed in the story!

    I was thoroughly engrossed in the story!

    Southampton, England 1815 is the setting we find ourselves in at the start of the book.

    I knew Samuel Thatcher had a story to be told when I encountered him in previous books and oh what a story it is. We meet cutthroats,scumbags,thieves,liars and the likes of those you'd never want to encounter in a dark alley if you had the misfortune to wander there.

    This is by far Michelle Greip's best book to date. She is a bold writer not afraid to show a little dirt in her books to make it realistic, very realistic. We encounter mud, blood,stinking clouts and spilled stew, can't forget that spilled stew in the coaching inn. The majority of the book takes place with "Captain" escorting Abigail Gilbert to her Sir Johnathon Aberley baronet. An arranged marriage is to take place. Oh my what a wild and at times dangerous adventure is to be had along the way.

    A baby who stole my heart figures into this book as well. Feeling he owes his friend to deliver the baby to her Aunt, this little mischief maker is quite the charmer as she babbles away and takes her first steps. The romance is there but it's subtle, we are not overwhelmed with it as the book concentrates on the adventure but you can feel the sizzle burning in the background.

    Will that be all for the handsome and courageous noble guardian when he arrives at the mansion of her intended badly wounded as he delivers her there?

    I so loved this book and didn't want it to end.

    Expected publication: June 1st 2019 by Shiloh Run Press.

    I received a complimentary copy of this book. Thank you.

    To my surprise, it was better than I thought it would be. This is a christian regency romance.

    Miss Abigail Gilbert is anxious to leave a miserable home to marry a baronet who asked for her hand. Captain Samuel Thatcher is an ex-war veteran who patrolled the roads for highwaymen. Circumstances force them to face the road and dangers to take the girl to her fiancé, while the captain has his hands full with a promise to a friend.

    Adventures and slow romance follow.

    The end was a bit dragged. The thing with the 'voices'

    I like that Abigail is not a delicate flower kind of heroine. She is able to take action despite her fears.

    And Samuel is a believable tormented hero.

    In the other hand, I am a bit cynical about historical romances believing in real love. Until very recently, and with that I mean early 20th century, people were more practical. And in that time, as we can see in the Austen romance , the heroine ended married with the house and the title, and don't forget the connections. Well, some can say decency required but it was more public image. But for this literature be a more gullible is a must , I'd think :sigh and not-gasp: ;P

    *Though is indicated as the third book of a serie, it can be read as stand-alone without problem.

    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.
