Review

“Parker’s third entertaining story is a joyous tale that will light up your day. The author uses humor to spice up a battle-of-wills plotline an dadds a cast of likable characters an dplenty of wild escapades and witty repartee. This is pure fun and pleasure.”

From the Back Cover

Exquisite trouble . . .

A woman of pristine breeding,Lady Rosalind Devine is also anunrepentant meddler and snoop—which is why her brother refuses toleave her to her own devices while onhis wedding trip. But Rosalind willnot make things easy for any unseen,unwanted “nursemaid”—and vowsto use her considerable wiles toexpose her mystery guardian.

Nicholas Kincaid, the Marquessof Winterbourne, agreed to secretlyguard his friend’s spoiled, stubbornsister, though her infuriating penchantfor mischief is causing him to questionhis decision. Though bound by therules of society—and friendship—Rosalind’s spirit and sensuality have sparked a fierce desire in Nicholas toplay a very different role in her life,one that entails passion, ecstasy . . .and unavoidable scandal.

this book started off with promise but had a comoletely anticlimactic and unbelievable ending. Rosalind has secreetly been in love with her neighbor and brother's best friend for years. however to hide hide his own attraction he pretty much treats her like dirt-ignoring her etc. After agreeing to keep an eye out for her on behalf of her brother passion flares but seemingly nothing else from his side. and then suddenly two pages from the end of the book he decides he's in love with her for no apparent reason. Quite antcliimactic and unconvncing even given the suspension of disbelief requred to enjoy a good romance.

Please indulge me as a take a moment to gush over how much I loved this book. Guarding a Notorious Lady gave me everything I want in a Historical Romance. It was sweet and sexy. It had great characters. And fantastic sexual tension.

Lady Rosalind is one of the most eligible women in society. The local men have even started taking bets as to who will win her hand. So when her brother decides to go out-of-town with his new wife, he asks his old friend Nicolas to be her guardian. Of course, her brother doesn't realize Rosalind has loved Nicolas from afar for years. And the feeling is mutual. But Nicolas takes his promise to protect Rosalind very seriously. He fights his feelings for her. His resolve is strengthened by the fact that he fears falling in love. But, of course, guarding Rosalind forces Nicolas to be with her all the time. And the more time they spend together, the more cracks form in his armor.

The book isn't perfect. I did get a bit frustrated with Nicolas in the second half as he continuously rebuffed Rosalind, sometimes intentionally hurting her feelings. But I couldn't hold it against him too long. Especially since he wanted her so much; he cared for her so much. And every time the two of them touched each other, it was electric. The love scenes weren't overly smutty, but they were still hot. Even long before they sealed the deal, just their stolen kisses and touches managed to be exciting.

This is book three in a series. But I never felt like I was missing anything, even though I haven't read the other two... a situation I plan to remedy in short order. Loved it. 5 stars.

I agree with tbe other 3 star reviewer I didn't find much depth to the characters . To me something was missing here. When it ended I thought " That's it? ". I think the ending was sort of rushed and not even an epilogue to compensate. The story is not bad is just missing a certain something IMO.

I really can't say enough about this book. I'd never read a novel by Olivia Parker prior to this one, but I can definitely tell you I'll be going back and finding her backlist now.

Rosalind has been in love with Nicholas since she met him. Nicholas has never seemed to care. Little does she know, he's felt the same way since they met, as well. The problem? They just don't know it yet.

This novel was wonderfully funny. It was outrageously charming. It was beautifully written. It was full of delightfully quirky characters. The hero and heroine were absolutely perfect for each other. The plot was well-devised. The scenarios Nicholas and Rosalind find themselves in are hilarious and just a little bit perfect.

This book solidly stuck Olivia Parker in my must-buy list. I look forward to the next novel by this delightful author.

i loved her previous books,so i was very excited when i knew that she was writing another one.this book is so-so.i didn't see much depth of charactor for rosalind,she was alittle blah.(no quirks or fire)and nicholas was also alittle"just there"versus my wanting those two people to be together.this book is not a bad book,just boring and uneventful.i would highly recommend her 2 earlier books,they were excellent.i am also hopeful that tristan will be getting his own love in her next book.

I really enjoyed At the Bride Hunt Ball, and to a lesser degree To Wed a Wicked Earl, so I'm very disappointed that this book left me so underwhelmed, especially since I really liked Rosalind in the other two books. However, in order to amp up the sexual tension between the hero (Nicholas) and the heroine in this one, Ms. Parker made Rosalind not only TSTL but also too clumsy to live. Every few minutes she was tripping and conveniently falling against the hero. Somehow neither of them are injured by this, just turned on. And really there is no tension because they essentially give into it pretty quickly. That part makes sense, actually, since it's clearly established they've secretly been in love with one another for years. That's really part of the greater problem here. There really was nothing keeping these two apart. And you really see that in the end when none of the hero's supposed inner turmoil is resolved before he proposes. It's all just glossed over. So why even tell the story? This could have been a novella, or even just a side story. As a full length novel, it falls completely flat.

This novel caught my attention from the first page. The first chapter automatically sets you up for the chase. The hero and heroine are so well written that you feel as if you have been dropped right into their lives as an innocent bystander. Rosalind is a young woman whom everyone in society thinks has it all and can do no wrong, but she doesn't have it all - there's just one more thing she wants.
Nicholas for all his good and honorable intentions seems to be doing an incredible job of protecting Rosalind from everyone - except himself. I think the reason for this might be that he's a little posessive.

What really set this book apart for me was the romance. The scenes were so well written that I could feel his hands on me. Not only did I wish I had read this in the freezer but I also read it six times in one week. I am currently wishing I could prevail on the author to write the rest of these two characters story. I know there's more to it. I think if you're a fan of historical romance that this book will be a very entertaining read for you.
