    Great ending to the Bow Runner series! Anyone who has read the first two books should definitely read this last one. It is full of adventure, action, some mystery and sweet romance. The characters were well developed and I enjoyed their back stories. I did feel however that one back st...

    3.5 stars This was an interesting and edge-of-your seat story in many parts, as a legendary robber tries to hunt down the prey his brother was hunting when the hero killed the brother in order to protect the lady. Whew...dark bad guy here. Very Dickensian sort of character, the type...

    Though I consider myself a reader of inspirational romance, I do find it cloying at times. My rule is to keep my inspie romance reads on spare occasions ? until I read Michelle Griep?s The Noble Guardian. What a refreshing voice and ethos! I want to read ALL the Grieps. (She is to ...

    Right from the first page this novel hooked me. Abigail (Abby) came from a family that hated her and didn?t care whether she had escorts to make her journey to her groom. All kinds of mishaps and dangerous situations she needed to get out of. Samuel?s sweet and caring side of his p...

    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 ...

    Samuel Thatcher would make any woman's heart thunder and her pulse race! Not only for his dark good looks, but for the heart of a hero that beats beneath a brooding facade. Too many years of being a Bow Street runner has jaded his opinion of people and convention be hanged, he won't al...

    At first it took me a while to get into this story, but the Cinderella story with a twist quickly grabbed my attention. On top of the historical rich story, filled with interesting characters and a Noble hero, and a bit naive still feisty young lady, I was taken on an adventurous ri...

    ?Even half-dead, Samuel could tell a lot about a man by the way he handled three things: old age, trousers that wouldn?t stay up, and strangers.? Ah, Michelle Griep. Such captivating Regency novels does she write. I have high expectations whenever I pick up this author?s boo...

    This is an American Western disguised as a Regency. And it's not a very good disguise at that. What do we have here? IMO, we have a mail-order bride romance, never mind the book description. A taciturn, troubled, still-waters lawman, out hunting a bad-hombre outlaw, is hired by an inno...
