    One word: supercalifragilisticexpialidocious!

    A month short of her majority, 4 January 1814, Letty is given to the Earl of Bainsbridge by her greedy uncle. Letty is bound and gagged, and the carriage is bound for Gretna Green. Letty had been drugged, but wakes up and tries to find a way to escape, and finds it. The Earl is asleep and Letty throws herself outside in the rain and mud and runs for her life. The awful men will not get her inheritance if she can help it. Jack Warriner has drunk too much in an attempt to drown in woes. The family estate is in debt, Markham Manor is decrepit; it’s been seven years since the Warriner patriarch died, and nothing seems to be improving. Riding back home on horseback, Jack sees Letty, who is terrified and so exhausted that she faints. Jack takes her home, she needs immediate care; she is bruised, chilled to the bone to a point that he fears for her life. It’s a good thing that one of Jack’s younger brothers is proficient in medicine, even though Joe cannot attend university that year, money being too scarce. Letty, Violet Dunston the Tea Heiress as she is commonly known, feels that she can trust the brothers to a point, but does not say everything, and Jack understands even if she senses her slight deception. They must find out what is really going on, and brother Jamie – who was a soldier in the war – is the man to do that. I was immersed in the story from the very first pages, as Ms. Heath creates a climate of tension, and I immediately felt for Letty. The descriptions are crystal clear, and so splendid that I saw everything as if I were on the premises. PROTECT is one of the smoothest introductions to a series I have ever read: it felt so organic, given the context that the brothers should work together, which gave the author the opportunity to tell us about them without burdening the narrative. Jack is the head of the household, has been for years, he finds it hard to delegate, while Letty is spoiled and unknowingly selfish, and it is a thing of beauty to watch Virginia Heath navigate those waters, while maintaining a delicate balance and creating such splendid interactions between the Letty and Jack, and the other brothers as well. I laughed myself silly at reading Jack’s internal conflict; Letty drives him crazy with her demands and with lust, all the while needing to protect her. Letty tries so hard to please Jack, thinking he doesn’t like her; she nearly works as hard as he does. And I thought it was wonderful that Jack is a working man, as are his brothers; he’s a farmer and he is exhausted. And has those stupid sheep, which are truly wonderful in every sort of way. The writing is spectacular, so gorgeous, so in tune with the era, I was nearly swooning! The story is fast-paced, there is not one single superfluous sentence; it’s dynamic, witty, intelligent, and so very romantic in a real way. I adored Letty and Jack, and Joe and Jamie, and Jacob. There is action that will take your breath away, and Letty’s plight is superbly resolved. A WARRINER TO PROTECT HER has to be the most dazzling, brilliant, extraordinary debut to a series ever. I thought it was a perfect book, absolutely flawless,I loved it, and I will love it forever. Absolutely magnificent! I voluntarily reviewed an advanced reader copy of this book.
