I highly recommend reading this book in a seat that you can buckle yourself into while having an entire day on your hands. Once you pick up Her Guardian Angel you can’t put it down. The anticipation of what will happen next will keep the pages turning as fast as you can read them. Heaton does an amazing job of telling a story that is filled with interwoven destinies, curses, deception and a history that some will fight all to see that it is never repeated again. This book is packed with awesomeness. Readers are giving an incredible love story, heaps of action and fighting and a suspenseful story that you are crazy if you don’t run out buy it and read it.
Marcus is a guardian. His current assignment is to keep an eye out on the girl next door. His superiors are very elusive in the details of his actual assignment. Marcus does not question this too much in the beginning. He is extremely loyal to his master. He is however ready for the assignment to be complete. In fact he is looking forward to being able to ask for a new role all together. One of the things that make Marcus so interestingly different is that he has been cursed. He was confined to Heaven for five hundred years due to the fact that he could not release his wings. During this time he became content to watch from afar. Heaven is his happy place. He is quite happy to no have to mingle among the humans.
Amelia is thankful when her neighbor comes to the rescue one night to remove one of her violent ex-lovers. She has a whole sting of crappy ex-lovers. Amelia has always had bad luck with men. The new neighbor is very handsome, kind and definitely chivalrous. She can’t help but wonder if perhaps Mr. Right moved in next door. I enjoyed Amelia’s pursuit of the reluctant Marcus. Marcus is not used to being around humans and he comes off as very distant with Amelia in the beginning. Marcus’s lack of human interaction and his development of feelings for Amelia make for one sweet romance. His character really had to come to terms with what exactly was going on with his feelings, feeling that are caused by Amelia.
Marcus is Amelia’s guardian angel. He is supposed to protect Amelia. Due to the non-answers his superiors continually give him he has no clue what he is protecting her from. After Amelia is attacked by a Hell’s Angel and his cursed wings fail to get them to safety he decides to go see another angel for some assistance in obtaining knowledge about these demons. Little does Marcus know but this is all some elaborate game where higher officials are moving their pawns to where they see it being most beneficial to them and damn whoever gets in the way. Nothing is as it seems with this book. The suspense of how can Marcus and Amelia possibly have a happy ever after with the odds they face is heartbreaking. Keep the tissues handy. This is one touching emotional roller coaster.
Her Guardian Angel can be read as a stand-alone. I don’t recommend it though. The couples from the first three books in the series have LARGE roles in this one. Events that occurred in the first three books are omitted and not relevant. The first three books in the series are very good and the stories as to how the couples got to where there are in Guardian make them worth the read. But, if you are just dying to read this book and not the others it is completely possible and you won’t be confused at all.
I’m hoping that Heaton continues this series. I’m not going to give any spoilers, but the ending was huge. The potential for major changes in this world are evident. I am very eager to see where these changes could go. This is certainly a series that I will continue reading. I love where it started. I love the characters that I have been introduced to. I love the HEA that Amelia and Marcus got. I can’t wait to get my hands on another one of these sexy angels books.
