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!

Great book

Although this is classified as a romance it has a great mystery written in the story. So because the sex is pretty detailed my rating is 4 not 5 stars. I prefer more mystery then romance and sex to be left to more imagination.

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.

Buy the book instead...don't waste a credit.

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.

Not recommended.
