For Lady Primrose Wootten nothing has been ordinary since her father the Baron died and his wayward family filled the estate with greed and treachery. Primrose knows if she can just track down her brother, he can send the odious relations on their way. But instead she finds this enormous, powerful stranger, and forgets entirely what she was doing in the first place...
Sir Bened Vaughn isn't much afraid of a pistol. But he is a bit afraid of the woman holding it, who stirs up something so primal he's not sure he can shake it off. Vaughn is an honorable man, and he knows he has no right to desire Primrose. Yet he does have an obligation to help her, and as they learn more about her brother's disappearance, he realizes that means staying by her side...wanting her all the while... and wondering how much longer they can resist temptation...

Howell continues her venerable Wherlockes and Vaughns Regency series (If He’s Daring) with an installment that mostly serves to build the larger series arc. The Honorable Primrose Wootten and her brother, Lord Simeon Wootten, need help evading the deadly traps set by their Aunt Augusta, who wants control of Willow Hill and the barony. While Sir Bened Vaughn’s psychic gifts are helpful, Primrose and Simeon really need his battle skills to thwart the assassins lying in wait throughout the countryside. The bloodthirsty fights are a stark contrast to Bened and Primrose’s tender love affair, which is sweet but lacking Howell’s trademark passion. Bened may be a fighting man, but he wants Primrose to see him as a romantic lover with soft words and poetry. The plodding through the countryside to reach the final destination gets tedious despite the frequent ambushes; the brief scenes featuring the close-knit Wherlockes and their affectionate banter are the best part of this romance. Fans will wish the family played a bigger role in helping Primrose and Simeon, but Howell (If He’s Daring) does add to the family history a bit and sets the scene for future stories.
