Feeling a hand on her boot, she jerked back only to look down and find Gazi looking up at he. Her shiver had been unmistakable, as was her sudden jump at his touch. Not that skittishness in this war zone was abnormal.

Through many books on secret service published in England since the War a shadowy figure goes gliding. A man of power and mystery looms up, the guiding hand behind our Secret Service. His appearance is described, his remarks are quoted, but his name is mentioned never. Although Ian Fleming himself never served in SIS, he certainly drew on many authentic details for his books and was probably inspired to publish his first thriller, Casino Royale, by another novelist, Phyllis Bottome, who wrote about a dashing, womanising British Secret Service officer, Mark Chalmers, in 1946, six years before James Bond emerged.

This book "At Her Service", is an enjoyable light, little romance story with a few hot scenes but not much action going on until you get near the end of this tale. It was interesting and held my attention, but the story did not pack the punch I have enjoyed in so many other books I have read recently. For example..."The Bride Thief"---(5 stars), "Worth Any Price (Bow Street, Book 3)"---(5 stars), and "Thunder and Roses (Signet Historical Romance)"---(5 stars). This book can not compete.

Joanna is the Lady of Lynwood Manor and protector of her small village. The great plague of Europe has recently taken many souls, including her husband and two of her small children. Thieves have been raiding her village and she has no male protector to stop them. She sends her Captain of the guard to London to find and return with the legendary mercenary, Logan Grimm. Grimm is known as the most fearsome fighter in the kingdom and Joanna hopes he can put a stop to the unwanted thieves raiding her village. Relieved when Logan arrives, she offers Logan the job. He accepts the offer and sets out to find the pesky thieves. She had expected a huge beast of a man and happily discovers a very handsome man who has manners. Joanna finds herself very attracted to Logan. Of course he is very attracted to her. Will Logan find and stop the thieves? Can any relationship they have together work? Can a Lady truly love a mercenary? And, will the mercenary stay?

The romance is fairly good in "At Her Service", but the story is not quite what I was hoping for. Slightly recommended. Enjoy!

Setting - England, 1350 --- Seven months into widowhood, Lady Joanna Lynwood knew men could be cruel and now the beast she'd been married to was dead, she had no desire to ever have another one in her life. Yet, when outlaws began terrorizing her people and upsetting her plans for a peaceful life, she knew she had to do something. Having lost two children to the plague, and now seeing her lone daughter Ivy narrowly escape a more serious injury, she would take necessary steps to see those outlaws caught and punished. So be it, if it was a man she needed, she would hire the best and sent the captain of her guards for a mercenary whose name alone would strike terror in the hearts of those that would dare take away her peace.

Logan Grimm, was located recovering from a leg wound awaiting the next offer to hire out his sword. The job sounded too good to be true, a simple task, until he learned he would be working for another widow and he turned it down flat. Sweetening the pot, Joanna's agent offered a week's wages to at least travel and meet the widow first before his final decision.

Meeting Joanna, and her daughter Ivy, he was more than convinced in still planning to leave the following morning as Joanna was far too beautiful and he'd had his fill of conniving beautiful widows. But, after a quiet nighttime talk, Logan took her measure realizing deep down that he could trust her word and decided to stay and help.

Vowing to keep things strictly business, Joanna fought her attraction to the darkly handsome warrior but the attraction was mutual and she recognized that the ferocious and fearsome mercenary had gentleness in his heart and manner that was quickly melting hers. Terrified by her feelings, Joanna had to decide if she should take a chance to know love or would this be just another job and another conquest that he'd leave when the job was over.

*** Ms. Anton has spun another spell binding medieval tale that is sure to please her most ardent medieval loving fans. Without going into a tremendous amount of detail one can sense the dread Joanna had of ever allowing another man to rule over her. Having buried two children, and a beast of a husband, the terror of losing her one remaining daughter to marauding outlaws gave her the courage to send for a mercenary - the title alone envisioning the brutal men who would kill for hire. Yet, over the objections of her advisors, she stuck to her guns. Logan was beautifully created as the loner, a man who never expected much, never dreamed of a family or of belonging, yet Joanna and sweet Ivy both showed him a kindness and acceptance he'd never thought to have. The story and characters all blended together beautifully in a highly entertaining and memorable medieval tale that I can highly recommend. --- Marilyn, for [...] ---

Shari Anton writes in period I know well and enjoy. It's my favourite historical period so I tend to be picky. I don't bash for anachronisms or bad history, I am just disappointed, and often won't read the writer again. Anton never disappoints me. She has a feel for the period and is able to take the reader and help them into the world of knights and people. Makes the story real.

In the 1300s of England, Lady Joanna Lynwood was very aware of the limits and extremes in men, especially their cruelty. She had been married to one of the worst, but thankfully, he is now dead. This bad experience causes Joanna to hope never to marry again. Only, a lady alone in these perilous times is a target for more of the evils of men. When outlaws begin terrorizing her people, she knows she must face the situation. She needs a man. Knowing the depravity of men, she sends her Captain of the Guard to hire a mercenary who would make even hard-bitten men turn pale.

Logan Grimm - even his name sets the tone of this mercenary - is found, only he is recovering from a wound, while awaiting to be hired. To him, the task as outlined is rather simple, maybe too good to be true. When offered a week's pay to come to Lady Lynwood and assess the situation, he jumps at the chance.

Upon meeting Joanna and her daughter Ivy, he is leery of accepting the job. However, Joanna convinces him the job is just as she outlines it. Logan sees a woman of strength, honour and beauty - and she needs his help desperately.

Joanna is instantly attracted to the dark warrior, senses there is more to the man than the fierce warrior mean he projects. Only, Joanna was hurt so deeply by the beast of a husband, she is not sure she could ever take the chance again and open herself to loving another man. Worse, she fears once the job is finished, the knight will move on, leaving her daughter and her alone once more.

Shari Anton spins a strong tale of scarred people struggling to heal, fighting to find a better way. Joanna and Logan are "real" people that make you care. She is able to imbue the tell with rich medieval details that should please her fans and fans of the genre.

Very highly recommended.
