Lady Allyson Crossleigh is in danger and her father responds to this threat by hiring Captain Lord Nathan Christopher Thornton to keep her safe. Although this post is less glamorous than his last assignment serving in His Majesty's Service, Allyson is the daughter of his commanding officer. In The Lady and the Footman (4.5), by Wilma Counts, kindhearted Allyson is surprised by her intense connection with Nathan, although she does sense that some things about her new protector are not as they appear. An engaging read, the romance is enhanced by the ghostly presence of a young girl, which only adds to the mystery, danger and intrigue threaded throughout this exciting and tender love story.
