The Guardian: A Gay Romance Novel

Jude Shea's life is turned upside down when he rescues a dog he names Joe. Even though Jude has enough trouble taking care of himself—he doesn't even have a job—he can't resist the animal that needs him. Then one night, a man shows up on his doorstep looking to claim Jude's new companion. As they run from a surprise attack, Jude finds out that "Joe" is not what he seems.

Publisher's Summary

Jude Shea's life is turned upside down when he rescues a dog he names Joe. Even though Jude has enough trouble taking care of himself—he doesn't even have a job—he can't resist the animal that needs him. Then one night, a man shows up on his doorstep looking to claim Jude's new companion. As they run from a surprise attack, Jude finds out that "Joe" is not what he seems.

Eoin Thral is a guardian from an alternate dimension, and once he leads Jude through the veil that separates their worlds, he transforms into a handsome hulk of a man known for his fighting skills, not the capacity for love. Jude finds himself immersed in Eoin’s world, and he's faced with the fight of his life to secure a happy future for them both.

    "Enjoyed the story"
    What made the experience of listening to The Guardian the most enjoyable?

    The story line - like romance and fantsy - sex scenes not overdone


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Guardian?

    Enjoyed the whole story


    What about Sean Crisden’s performance did you like?

    Loved the way he presented Eoin Thral's - loved to him said JUDE SHEA


    Who was the most memorable character of The Guardian and why?

    Eoin Thral - he seemed to be content with being alone - but like most he wanted someone special - someone to care for him


    Any additional comments?

    This is mine first time purchasing books/audio in this genre and have truly enjoyed the stories. I have also purchased the following books by Mary Calmes: Timing and Change of Heart. I like romance stories when the story is more about the plot and not the sex scene. I have also purchased stories by the following authors: Jamie Craig, Christine Price and Josh Lanyon.

    "I understand the reviews now"

    I understand some of the reviews now. I actually like the story...but this was not Calmes best. After knowing that Calmes is the writer of Matter of Time... I just don't understand how she could write something like this... this had so much potential... And why does everyone keep talk about how handsome Jude is...Ok...we get it... 2 stars!
