New York Times best-selling author Julie Garwood takes breathless sensuality to thrilling heights in this unforgettable adventure of passion and intrigue.
The Emerald flew across the seas, carrying the pirate Pagan - despised by the ton, whose riches he plundered, and beloved by the poor, whose plight was eased by his gifts.
The Marquess of Cainewood vows to hunt down the pirate wretch in revenge for his brother's death. But when Jade, an enchanting vision of rippling red hair and eyes of jewel-green, appears at his door to beg desperately for his protection, the Marquess agrees to keep her safe from the villains who want her dead. Jade is infuriating, exasperating, and gorgeous; Caine is noble, strong-willed, and powerful. No woman has ever befuddled him so, nor so deeply aroused his desire. But as Jade answers his knowing caresses with an innocent, wild abandon, they are drawn into a web of treachery that will test the very heart of their love!

Guardian Angel was the first Julie Garwood book I read. When listening to the audio, it makes it just more sweeter
Mrs Garwood is a excellent story teller, she does not leave you on cliffhanger very long.
My favorite scene was when Cain found out Jade was the pirate he has sworn to hunt down and kill.
When Jade had risked her life to save Cain and her brother, where the water was infected
Another good read by Garwood. I especially like this one because the heroine is not a simpering miss. She also has problems of her own and the hero has to do some sweet talking to win her over. Character development is also continuing to develop as we meet more people whose lives are intermingled.
The story is interesting if not typical but the narrator drove me insane with her constant whispering. I literally found myself groaning every time she did it which was quite often. Will never listen to another book narrated by this women!
Julie garwood hits another one out of the park. I love the way the heroines are capable as well as the hero's and the love scenes are tastefully done. the narrator was great. best books, especially for the money.
I just Love the Allure of a Great Romance...a Pair of Rose Colored Glasses...some Fine Wine, and a Subscription to Audible...
Guardian Angel: Crown's Spies Book 2, by Julie Garwood, is another amazing story narrated by Susan Duerden! Ms. Garwood's talent consistently maintains the highest level of skill and integrity as she weaves her adventure with just the right amount of comedy, and breathless sensuality. You will love this!
Definitely Credit Worthy!
Very good series. Julie Garwood is by far one of my favorite author's. The story had a little adventure, mystery and of course romance. It kept me interested to the end.
The story was so-so at best - I have certainly read many better, even by this same author. The female lead was naive and timid one minute, and a regular shrew the next. She was also illogical beyond belief, even when she wasn't "pretending". The male lead suffered from frustration throughout, trying to figure her out. I just couldn't see what they saw in each other. The romance was never convincing to me.
The "mystery" part of this story was only sketchily drawn out, and included very little detail or character development. That's another reason I think this would be better if read.....easier to turn back the pages to see who was who.
But I believe the biggest part of my disappointment was due to the narrator, who was just plain annoying. Nice voice, but no real distinction between the characters. And wherever the author wrote, "she whispered", or "he whispered", that is exactly what the narrator did. I can't fault her for trying to follow what the author wrote, but I think it would have been better if she just lowered her voice rather than actually whispering. Also, I couldn't tell if the book was intended to be as "tongue in cheek" as the narrator portrayed. She used the same tone for every situation, whether it was humor, panic, fear, anger, sadness or just plain serious conversation. All she did was change the volume. Very difficult to interpret what was going on.
Every sentence had the exact same intonation. I eventually was able to ignore it to get through the story. I have always loved Julie Garwood and this one didn't disappoint as far as writing went
Honestly I couldn't even make it thru the fist two chapters, I read others reviews but I had no idea how bad the whispering was. Just painful to listen to. I was really in the mood for an audiobook too but couldn't handle it.
Don't know couldn't even make it.
Voices, no mock fake whispering that reminds me of annoying coworkers!
Just don't do it. Buy the book
