William journeys back to 1558 where Isabel de Pinze sees him miraculously step out of the water. However, thugs immediately accost him. With Isabel's help he wins the battle, but is badly wounded. She manages to take him to her home where her guardian calls Dr. John Campbell to look at William. John is actually Bartholomew who recognizes the tattoo of a Protector who is most likely coming for him. As William and Isabel fall in love, he must stop Bartholomew from changing history by protecting his mother, a little girl living with Isabel's guardians.

MY SECRET PROTECTOR is a fine historical romantic fantasy that readers of the two sub-genres will enjoy. Though the audience will need to accept the Protectors and their species living among mortals, the author binds her audience through the plight of the hero willing to die to protect his loved ones. This solid tale will lead to the audience wanting to learn more about this nearly immortal race watching the time stream.
