Publisher's Summary

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!

    "Love a Julie Garwood Book"
    Where does Guardian Angel rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Guardian Angel was the first Julie Garwood book I read. When listening to the audio, it makes it just more sweeter


    What did you like best about this story?

    Mrs Garwood is a excellent story teller, she does not leave you on cliffhanger very long.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    My favorite scene was when Cain found out Jade was the pirate he has sworn to hunt down and kill.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When Jade had risked her life to save Cain and her brother, where the water was infected
    with sharks.

    "The Series Keeps Getting Better"

    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.

    "narration is irritating"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    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!

    "Loved This Book!"

    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!

    "Good Listen"

    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.

    "Narration annoying"

    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

    "Horrendous narration"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    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.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Don't know couldn't even make it.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Voices, no mock fake whispering that reminds me of annoying coworkers!


    Any additional comments?

    Just don't do it. Buy the book

    "Another Historical Garwood Favorite in Audio!"

    This is one of my favorite Garwood titles and Duerden did an wonderful job of bringing the story to life. With the exception of Jade's character, everyone else was as I had imagined when reading the story. In Jade's case, I felt she sounded too young and inexperienced to be a pirate or a woman who had lived on an island surrounded by different cultures. I don't think it was a problem with the overall narration just the narrator's choice of voice.

    Story
    "Cute & Funny"

    This is a cute & endearing story that follows "The Lion's Lady." The relationship between Caine, the Marquess of Cainewood and Jade is similar to that of Lyon and Christina, the characters from "The Lion's Lady." Jade strings together an array of varied stories that keep Caine confused, piqued and very interested in keeping her safe. Although he does not believe each of her stories (reasonably so), he is aware that she is in real danger. He is hopelessly drawn to her, and she to him.....as Christina (Lyon's wife) put it, "it's destiny."

    Jade's stunning beauty and off-kilter antics allow her to hook Caine's attention and forge a burgeoning relationship. It starts off with, and centers on Jade's uncanny ability to present herself as a damsel in distress and in need of Caine's protection, when in fact, she is on a mission to keep him safe from a conspiracy that unknowingly threatens his life and the life of those he loves. Caine, blames the pirate Pagan for the death of his brother, Colin. However, there are so many twists and unexpected surprises throughout the book that Caine finds that who he once considered an enemy was truly his champion.

    I like Jade, the heroine of the story because of her creativity & imagination. She has a photographic memory and is an expert at manipulation. She's quite effective in her manipulation mainly because the men around her tend to underestimate women, in general. Although she manipulates, it's done with good intentions since she is trying to preserve many secrets from prematurely coming to light and her # 1 goal is to keep everyone safe. She is silly and can drive you nuts because she constantly goes off-topic, gives half-details that compel others to "fill in the blanks" with their own erroneous assumptions, and she LOVES TO PRESS CAIN'S BUTTONS!!! Jade drives Caine nuts!!! That part is cute & funny. Although Jade comes across as silly, it's a done purposely to keep Caine & his friends "in the dark" and unaware until the appropriate time to unveil the truth. She's pretty powerful....and it like it!

    I really liked Caine as well, bless his heart. He is high-strung, but also playful. He has a lot of patience when dealing with Jade. He is definitely attracted to her physically, but he is also intrigued by her character. He detects that there is more to her than the rambling, silly woman under his protection. He wants to know more about her and falls in love with her possessively and without restraints. Caine is a definite man's-man. He's a warrior, a protector and quite loyal when he falls in love. And, he definitely has fallen in love with Jade. He does not let her go, even when she insists on it. He can be a little heavy-handed, but overall I think Jade handles him well. They both suit each other well since they are both strong characters. The chemistry between the two is magnetic.

    This story unfolds like the peels of an onion; in layers. You will not be transported to any fanciful society setting such as balls, horse rides in the country, shopping experiences etc., but the focus is on character development and dialogue. This is the book of chatter! Most of the book takes place in sitting rooms and studies while a diverse group of people including crown spies, duke/duchess, pirates, and undercover agents come together to try and figure out an elaborate governmental conspiracy and mysterious villain.


    Annoying Aspects (but bearable):
    I'm not sure why exactly Julie Garwood wrote with a keen focus on the character's voice & volume. Jade is constantly whispering to emphasize her points. Most of the time, Caine is yelling over her...but most of it works because it's funny. Jade is an adorable little actress and keeps Caine in constant circles to keep him hooked and distracted from his pursuit of vengeance for his brother's death. If you can get over the "she whispered" and "he bellowed"...you'll be fine....lol
