About the Book
Hiding in the shadows just got harder.
When tragedy strikes, Juliana and her family must flee their home. Can they persuade a virtual stranger to help them? Juliana isn’t so sure, especially after their chaperone threatens to cane him. Even as Juliana struggles to trust him, she finds herself drawn to this mysterious man. Surely all she wants from him is refuge…
Rupert is a man whose life depends on his ability to remain unnoticed. What, then, is he supposed to do with this family he’s inherited? His life is overrun with an ancient chaperone who would terrify a lesser man, two spirited girls, and the secretive Juliana – someone he comes to think of as his own precious jewel.
With this new responsibility thrust upon him, Rupert will have to make sacrifices – but will God ask him to sacrifice everything?
Mystery, suspense, intrigue, murder and mayhem! This story keeps you turning the pages wanting to know more about who The Hunter really is, and why he is so determined to kill The Jackal. Until it is revealed in the story, I still was uncertain who The Hunter would be.
I love the characters in this story, Rupert and his morals, his faithful service to the Crown, and faith in God, no matter what it has cost him in his life. His friendship with the Duke and Duchess and his service to them. Then enters unannounced into his life, not one but four feisty women, Juliana, self sacrificing for the two half-sisters she loves, Eleanor and Eudora, and their chaperone, Mrs. Burnham and her wicked cane! This story takes us on a journey of pain due to untimely deaths of family members, to redemption for the wrongs in life and love found between two special people. This is a beautifully written tale that covers so many emotions and is clean story that shows a man whose faith in God, no matter what life has thrown at him, does not waiver and God’s grace and goodness. Love can be found in two unlikely people, when circumstances bring them together.
