Third Son's a Charm by Shana Galen
Date Read: November 7th 2017
Genre: Historical, Romance
Ewan Mostyn thinks a job as a duke's daughter's bodyguard will be easy―but Lady Lorraine has a few tricks up her sleeve that spark an undeniable passion...
Fiercely loyal to his friends and comrades, Ewan Mostyn is the toughest in a group of younger sons of nobility who met as soldiers and are now trying desperately to settle back into peaceful Society. Ewan trusts his brawn more than his brains, but when he's offered a job watching the Duke of Ridlington's stubbornly independent daughter, he finds both are challenged.
Lady Lorraine wants none of her father's high-handed ways, and she'll do everything in her power to avoid her distressingly attractive bodyguard―until she lands herself in real trouble. Lorraine begins to see Ewan's protectiveness in a new light, and she can only hope that her stoic guardian will do for her what he's always done―fight for what he wants.

Read for Review (From Author)
What a great series this will be! During the war with France, a group of 3rd sons were recruited for what we would call a special ops unit. Some of them survived and created the Survivors’ Club. Most of them still have nightmares.
Ewan Mostyn thinks himself a lackwit because he can’t read. His nickname during the war was the Protector. He currently works as a bouncer at the Draven Club, a gaming hell. On his way to work he saves a woman, Lady Lorraine, who ran out in the street to save her dog.
Lorraine’s father, the Duke of Ridlington, knows nothing about the dog incident but wants to hire Ewan to protect his daughter from a gentleman she thinks she loves. Ridlington knows the man does not love her but is after her fortune. Ewan tries to refuse, but when he learns the man is his hated cousin, Francis Mostyn, he agrees.
Lorraine is very attracted to Ewan and it is a fun, great read to their HEA. Along the way, there is another couple rekindling their love. Thanks to Shana Galen for the ARC. I won’t write spoilers, but I can highly recommend this. It’s a wonderful book and am looking forward to the next one in this series. No one influenced this review.
