He'll do anything to protect the woman he loves . . . but first, he must make amends for taking advantage of her innocence. 

In the much awaited conclusion to Innocence, A Forbidden Love – Book One, Nathaniel, the Marquis of Marsden, is left reeling at the revelation of Lisa's royal heritage. Keeping her safe has always been his priority, and he is determined to protect her . . . from the King's machinations, their enemies, and her own overly generous nature if necessary.

Although overjoyed to be reunited with Nathaniel, Lisa fears she made a better mistress than she will a marchioness. Longing for a return to the freedom they shared when he thought her a commoner, she does her best to live up to his—and society's—expectations, but she's only willing to compromise so far. Being kept in the dark is no longer an option. Despite the unexpected pleasure she discovered in Nathaniel's arms, if there is one thing Lisa has learned . . .  ignorance is far from bliss.

The essentials of a well-written, regency romance are abundant in the second installment of the Forbidden Love duology, Protection. The romance, intrigue, scoundrels, and miscommunications kept me inthralled from the first page to the last.

Protection begins right where Innocence left off, with Anneliese "Lisa" Barlow and Marquis of Marsden, Nathaniel, vying for the king's blessing of their engagement. While the king eventually agrees, it doesn't come without a price. After being introduced to society as a heroine, a royal one at that, she is the toast of the ton. With a very public engagement and the vigilant eye of family and friends, Nathaniel and Lisa's relationship has been forced in a different direction. They are unable to express their affections as freely as they had before, a cause of great distress for both parties.

Lisa strives to keep her promise to help women who had suffered cruelty at the hands of others. This leads her to dip a toe into a political arena women of her station are often discouraged from even thinking about. The plight of these women gives another meaningful layer to Protection's engrossing plot.

The brilliance of Protection lies in the expertly developed layers of the storyline. Lisa and Nathaniel's road to wedded bliss, the crusade to help the women who've been abused, and the dispatching of the vile men who knew the truth of Lisa's time as a mistress to Nathaniel are all weaved into a scintillating narrative. I applaud Elise de Sallier for once again giving us a novel to fall in love with.

Thank you to Elise de Sallier and The Writer's Coffee Shop Publishing House for providing me with an Advanced Reader's Copy of Protection in exchange for an honest review. I can't wait to read more fascinating storylines from this author.

Author Bio

A great believer in living happily ever after, Elise began her lifelong obsession with the romance and paranormal genres when she was far too young to be reading either. After more than thirty years of marriage to her very own romantic hero, she now knows great relationships don't just happen, they take work . . . which doesn't mean writing about them can't be a whole lot of fun!

While raising a family, Elise established a career as a counsellor and family therapist. Seeking an escape from the stresses of her work, she discovered the world of fan fiction, and her timid writer's muse made its voice heard. Two point three million hits, twenty thousand reviews, and an e-mail from an acquisitions editor at The Writer's Coffee Shop later, and her life found a new and fascinating direction.

Elise likes to see her characters grow, experience passion and adventure, tackle some difficult issues, and find lasting love . . . eventually.
