 THE ROMANCE READER reviews: My Lord Protector by Deborah Hale
My Lord Protector is Deborah Hale's debut novel, and while I liked the book, I get the feeling that this author is not going to be everyone's cup of tea.
I've read lots of novels where the author cuts to the chase, so to speak, by telling the reader that the hero and heroine in question "talked through the night, sharing their deepest feelings," or something similar.
In My Lord Protector, the reader is actually in on those conversations, and the reward is an intimate knowledge of two people who, the reader believes without doubt, belong together.
