Fans of Bridgerton and Outlander will love this richly textured and adventurous Historical Romance by International Bestselling Author Stacy Von Haegert.

 

Edward Kingston, Earl of Wellington, lives by a strict moral code: indulge in pleasure.

Edward lets his family represent the Kingston name with proper responsibility, while he secures the title of "Overall Cad". However, he makes an irreversible mistake by obliging one small favor, a dance lesson.

Morgan Sinclair needs a tolerable husband. Quickly! A season away with London's elite Bon Ton should help. Her aunt, the duchess, will make Morgan the perfect debutante. Many lessons are necessary first, but her future depends on it. Morgan and her charismatic dancing master, the Earl of Wellington, find themselves in a situation neither of them expected. Love.

The notorious Kingston's have a turbulent past of mystery and betrayal, but Morgan Sinclair has her own secrets looming. The couple must learn to navigate unprecedented obstacles...

...if their relationship is to survive.

Excerpt:

By the time the coach pulled up the drive at Governors square, Morgan just wanted to take a nap. It was tiresome work being a grateful pin-cushion. She climbed the stone steps behind the duchess and her mother, ready to take her leave when they got inside. But before her foot had time to land on the last step, a butler stepped forward and handed her a calling card.

Morgan read it, smiled, and went straight to the sitting room where she found Eloise. A slice of lemon cake in both hands.

“I am so jealous!” the small blonde exclaimed once they were alone. “Have you any idea how lucky you are?”

Morgan let out a long-overdue sigh as she plopped down next to her new friend. “Yes, I have been informed. Madam LeMore is the best, and I am akin to a toad in the color yellow.”

“A toad!” Eloise gasped. “Did she really compare you to that?”

“At least she was being honest. I will take her assessment, gladly.” Morgan grinned. “Especially if she can get me looking half as fashionable as you.”

“You think me fashionable?” Eloise asked, genuinely shocked.

“Oh, Eloise, surely you have been told that petite blondes are the fancy?” She smiled, seeing the blush wash over her friend’s cheeks.

“Well, I have heard, but compared to you, I look mousy and not nearly as…dramatic. Why, your dance card will stay full the entire season,” Eloise said affirmatively.

“Dramatic?” Morgan considered the descriptive. There were certainly less appealing words. She rather liked ‘dramatic’. It made her think of something exotic. Or dangerous.

Eloise nodded. “Yes, dramatic. You do not look like you will blend into the wallpaper. Instead, you look like you could compete with it.”

Morgan considered her new friend for a moment. “That is probably the nicest thing anyone has ever said to me.” She smiled, then tried to look serious. “Now, do not ever call yourself mousy. You are lovely, whereas…”

It just keeps getting better and better. After the first book I knew I was hooked, but now...omg I have to know what happens next.

Whether this is your first in the series or you're reading them in order you will not be disappointed with this one. Edward is the second loose canon of the Kingston family. A year or so prior to this story we met sister, Greyland in Under His Protection (The White Rose Trilogy Book 1) . Where she is rebellious and wild Edward is secretive and hot headed. There is a connection between all of the siblings but I really enjoyed the relationship between Edward and Greyland.

Sandy Spencer on Amazon wrote:

Under His Guidance is the second in the trilogy -- and does as the first delivering romance, passion (some very steamy!) and fast paced action. The reader is given a mere introduction to the characters in the first book, and it is here, in the second, where we are made to fall in love with them, for their spirit, beauty and devotion to each other. The villain is a true baddy -- and you can't help but love to hate him. Set in beautiful England in an exciting Victorian time often complicated by strict social boundaries - the reader will love the story of how a young woman tries to navigate her way out of an almost impossible situation.

Most debutantes meet their intendeds at polite societal gatherings, not over a duel in Hyde Park.

However, Greyland Kingston is not your typical young lady, and her family is far from conventional.

Alexander Hamilton, Duke of Ravenswood, is about to find out how unique the family is when he becomes unwittingly entangled with the newly arrived Kingston's from New Orleans—one family member in particular. With her spirited personality and innocent aversion to all things proper, Greyland Kingston completely throws him off his well-established game.

The gossip fans start to flutter when Greyland, her two older brothers and distinguished father, make their debut. Who is this family? How do they know The Queen? Why does the patriarch look like the ghost of the long-ago Plantagenet King, Edward the IV?

Trouble ensues in the form of jealous women, ambitious men, and a vengeful Irish clan. Alexander quickly finds that having Greyland for his own will come at a steep price…

And he must risk everything to keep her protected.

Excerpt:

The sound of thundering hooves trampling over the earth brought Alex’s mind right back to the present. All three men jerked their heads toward the intrusion. A bay steed burst through the bush carrying a wild-eyed girl. Her beautifully carved slender legs were exposed up to her knees and she was missing one of her slippers.

The horse immediately sensed the wolf and reared straight up. Surprisingly, the bareback rider managed to hug tight to the beast’s neck and stayed on. As the front hooves made contact with the ground—and before the horse could rise in protest again—the girl catapulted off the side and unsuccessfully grabbed for the reins. The mare bolted away.

“Damn!” she said, simply annoyed, as if she had lost a shilling rather than a thoroughbred.

“What on earth!” Perkin’s previous calm appearance all but shattered into a thousand pieces in front of them.

“Is that a wolf?” The girl’s sites fixated on Malikite, a glint in her bright eyes, her breathing coming hard, causing her small breasts to rise and fall, threatening to escape a much-too-slack bodice.

Alex stared. Who on earth had helped this poor woman dress? Clearly a dressing-maid with a vengeance. Unless the young lady before them was newly escaped from the asylum. Which might explain the entry.

The girl was completely disheveled. A twig dangled from her raven-black curls. Windblown pink cheeks decorated her milk-white skin and a bead of perspiration highlighted her cupid-bow lips. Her eyes were like the palest green of the sea, and they raged as wild as a developing storm. Never in his wildest dreams had he ever thought a woman could be this...inspiring. Captivating. Alive! She had to be from the asylum, Alex concluded. Someone’s daughter or young bride that had lost her wits and had to be committed.

I was impressed from the beginning! A question was posed- What really happened to the two young princes of York, who were held prisoner in the tower of London by their ambitious uncle following the death of their father, King Edward of York? And, of course, the book does answer that question, quite splendidly in my opinion, for a debut book!
Under His Protection has all the things I look for in a book. Swoon-worthy men, feisty females, descriptions that put you in the room, an exciting story and just enough romance to liven things up! The main characters are all written with great detail and a vast array of emotions are captured.
I must admit to falling a bit in love with most of the characters, and found myself utterly enchanted with this book.
There was no evidence of any grammatical errors, the time line flowed well and the book moved at a very fast clip. I look forward to reading more from this author!

Reviewer on Amazon wrote:

Wow!! What a great book, it was very fast-pace but well written. I love reading historian books like this, I haven’t read one in a while but I’m glad I got to read this book. The author does a fantastic job with the details of the storyline and the character development. Reading this book made me feel as if I was right alongside the characters. The book starts off intense with a brawl. It was very exciting and It had me gasping. But after that the story unfolds into a great romance. It has some twist and turns, which made the story even more exciting. I love Alex and Greyland, they have to be my new favorite book couple. I don’t want to give any of the storyline away but this book is a must read, and this author is fantastic at what she does. I will definitely be reading more of this author’s book she is very talented. Thank you for writing a wonderful book.

This is my first time reading a historical romance. Wow this book drew me in from the beginning. This a fast pace book. I had all kinds of emotions. Stacey Von Haegert wrote this book so that I felt like I was Greyland Kingston. When Greyland met Alexander Hamilton, Duke of Ravenswood, it was love at first sight. Alexander is handsome, strong and Nobel. Swoon. He's exactly what every woman wants. This book leaves you wanting more. Thank goodness this is the first of a trilogy. I recommend this book to every romance and historical reader.
