Defending the Duchess by Rachelle McCalla

Book Description:
Defending the DuchessHe'll keep her safe—at any costProtecting the royal family is Linus Murati's job. So when the queen's younger sister is attacked, the devoted Lydian royal guardsman goes into action and saves her life. But this was no random occurrence. Danger has followed Julia Miller across the Atlantic from Seattle. Now Linus has two missions: to keep the maddeningly independent future duchess in his sights at all times, and to catch the culprit who threatens the woman whose trust—and love—he desires above all others.

Protecting the Crown: The royal guardsmen serve their country with honor and integrity

My Thoughts:
I loved this one.    Linus is a member of the Royal Guard.  His job is to protect the new queen's sister, the Duchess.  Julia is a lawyer and has traveled to support her sister in her new role as Queen.  It seems she has brought trouble with her and it is Linus job to keep her safe.  When she is attacked, neither understand the reasons or how deep the danger is.
I liked both of the leading characters.  Juila's thoughts for her family and especially her sister's well being and safety were just great.  Linus has a past that he isn't proud of but is an exceptionally good Guard.  He is caring, attentive and strong...all things women want!  I loved that he was memorizing Psalms and how the author worked that flawlessly into the story.  
I rate this a 5/5.  I'm ready to read more about the royal family.
Thank you to the publisher for the review copy of this book (via netgalley).  I received this book in exchange for an honest review and the opinions stated above are 100% mine.
