A Cross-Country Trip through Regency England Brings Intrigue, Rogues, and High Adventure
The must-read conclusion to Michelle Griep’s Bow Street Runners Trilogy: Life couldn’t be better for Abigail Gilbert—but it’s been a long time coming. Having lived with a family who hated her, love is finally within reach. Abby sets off on a journey across England to marry one of the most prestigious gentleman bachelors in the land—until highwaymen upset her plans and threaten her life.
Horse patrol captain Samuel Thatcher arrives just in time to save Abby. But to him she’s simply another victim in a job he’s come to despise. Tired of the dark side of humanity, he intends to buy land and retire.
Abby pleads with him to escort her on the rest of her journey. He refuses until she offers him the thing he desperately needs to achieve his goal: money. Delivering her safely will earn him more than enough to settle into a quiet life.
So begins an impossible trek for the cynical lawman and the proper lady. Each will be indelibly changed by the time they reach her betrothed, if they don’t kill one another first—or fall in love.
With page-turning action and drama, you won’t want to put this story down! I fell in love with these characters. Even the secondary characters give so much to this story. There is plenty to love and enjoy within the pages of The Noble Guardian!
Abigail Gilbert has big plans for her future, she just didn’t plan on the unexpected adventure that awaits her along the way. Abigail may have been raised in a fine, fashionable home, but the lack of love she received left deep scars, not to mention that her planning for a love in her future may be more dream than reality. As her plans begin to unravel and her future becomes not at all what she expected will she stay the course or discover a new dream for her future?
Captain Samuel Thatcher is a man of few words. But if ever you needed someone in your corner to rescue you, this is the man for the job! He is observant and cunning, not much of anything slip past him. Behind his gruff exterior, Samuel has a tender heart, not that he’d admit that to anyone. Samuel is dependable, courageous, and quite the capable protector. You are sure to fall for this dashing hero!
I enjoyed every moment of this delightful story! It has something for everyone. Dynamic characters, engaging story-line, action, adventure, deep faith, and lots of heart. This is a story for the keeper shelf, a story that you’ll want to pull out and enjoy again!

About the Author:
I hear voices. Loud. Incessant. And very real. Which basically gives me two options: choke back massive amounts of Prozac or write fiction. I chose the latter. Way cheaper. I’ve been writing since I discovered blank wall space and Crayolas. I seek to glorify God in all that I write…except for that graffiti phase I went through as a teenager. Oops. Did I say that out loud?
