I'm assuming you're referring to the Virtuous Guardian of Flame's ability to detect threats the sorcerer is unaware of. It'd still get to roll against the White Veil stylist's (Manipulation + Socialize), and if it beats it, would provide the normal benefits of a defend other even against an ambush (although the sorcerer would still suffer all the downsides of an ambush if the attacker overcomes the Guardian's Parry).
The same is true of ambushes and defend others generally.
