Guardian Angel: Crown's Spies, Book 2 | [Julie Garwood]

Guardian Angel: Crown's Spies, Book 2

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.

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.

    "Great love story with unexpected plot"

    The descriptions of the plot can't begin to tell the real story without spoiling the story, so disregard most everything you read in the publisher's data. This is a delightful story with a fabulous pair of lovers, where the woman is delightful. There's humor and danger and plenty of loving and exciting action. It's the 2nd in the series, and though it can stand alone, I'd definitely start right at the beginning.

    "Very Entertaining!"

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book when I read it years ago and now after listening to it I came to appreciate it in a whole new way. This book really grabbed my attention from the beginning and kept my interest throughout. Its romantic, funny and so delightful. This is one to keep on the revisit list.

    The narrator was wonderful. She does a great job fluctuating her voice with the written word (i.e. whispering). It really makes the book come alive.

    "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!

    "Another great book by Julie Garwood"
    Any additional comments?

    I purchased this book based on reader’s reviews and am so glad I did. This book actually has a couple of nice twists to it that I did not expect. Certainly made the story more interesting. Again here we have a strong female character and a kind but strong male character as well. Here we have again a woman who is raised by “savages” and turns out to be a great human being just as the last book in the series “The Lion’s Lady”. Wonderful passionate scenes and good storyline make it a nice read. Do women like this really exist back then? I ‘d love to think so. I highly recommend this book.

    Story
    "A FUNNY, PASSIONATE & ENTERTAINING REGENCY ROMP"

    For any historical/romance lover who has read, or listened to, any of Julie Garwood's books in this genre then you pretty much know what you're going to get - a listen that will whisk you back in time to give you a glimpse of a story that you just won't want to leave.

    This was exciting right from chapter one and continued to entertain me with humour, passion, plot twists, mysteries, not too explicit sex scenes, some really amusing characters that get themselves tied up in a funny, yet tender, romance about revenge, treachery, deceit and desire. The chemistry between Jade and Caine was the real focus of the story and, once again, JG's delivers a hero and heroine that are likeable and with whom you can sympathise with.

    This was originally written in 1990 so I hope Audible will catch up with the rest of the series and add The Gift (1991) and Castles (1993) to it's library soon. It does have characters from book 1 The Lion's Lady but this could easily be a stand alone listen.

    Worth a credit? It would have been, but at $7.34 for over 12 hours of listening pleasure, I just bought it and saved my credit for a pricier book - that may not be as enjoyable as this was but is double or treble the price.

    "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.

    I love Epic Fantasy....have become a Historical Romance fan because I am a sucker for a good Happily Ever After. Good characters are a must

    "Captivating from beginning to end....10 STARS!"

    I was captivated from beginning to end!

    I was immediately in love with the characters. Even the secondary characters were very well written and I enjoyed every single character in this book! The story is riveting and interesting and kept me on the edge of my seat. Garwood weaves an interesting tapestry of mystery.
    Caine and Jade's relationship is fiery and delightful from the moment they meet. Definitely a delicious romance.

    I was glad that the previous book's characters (Lyon & Christina) were included in this book. They weren't just thrown in randomly.....there was good reason for them to be part of this book.

    The narration is again wonderful .... Susan Duerden is a real talent. While sometimes it might take some getting used to some of her whispers....she brings the story to life and let's each scene become a vivid movie in my mind.

    I didn't want to pause this book and I didn't want it to end. I LOVED LOVED LOVED this book! I would give this book 10 stars if I could. Every character, every sentence, and every moment of this book was exciting and well-developed. This may very well be one of my favorite books of all time.

    While it is a romance, Garwood has written a great story that makes you constantly wonder what's going to happen next. I laughed...I cried.....I shouted.....I cringed.....I smiled.....I got goose bumps! SO VERY CREDIT WORTHY......LISTEN TO THIS BOOK!

    "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.
