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!

    "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.

    "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.

    "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.

    "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!

    "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.

    Story
    "The Best of This Series"
    Would you listen to Guardian Angel again? Why?

    Yes. I liked the two main protagonists and their love story. Both have strong personalities and a sense of confidence that make them a good match and an entertaining couple. The romance was appealing along with the overall story that brings them together and then keeps them together.


    What did you like best about this story?

    It was entertaining. This is one of my favorites of Julie Garwood's historical romances because she stays consistent with her characterization of her main characters, the story isn't over or underdone, and she throws in humor that makes it all that much more engaging. I also like when the female protagonist isn't too reliant on her male counterpart despite the time period when this is often the expected thing.


    Have you listened to any of Susan Duerden’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes, and she continues to not disappoint.


    Any additional comments?

    This book is great on its own or in combination with some of the other books of the series if you're looking for something of this genre.

    Any additional comments?

    This is a fun book that is excellently performed by Susan Duerden. I loved the first meeting of Jade and Caine. I could not imagine what was going on! There are several great characters in the book. They are entertaining and add interest to the story. Jade is the dreaded pirate, Pagan. Everyone of course thinks Pagan is a man, but the intriguing Jade is the she devil that everyone fears. She has learned to be a pirate from her relatives and is a brave, smart and energetic woman. Listening to the well read story of Jade and Caine is a pleasure and I highly recommend this book. Julie Garwood is a great writer and storyteller. Almost all of her books are good - some are great.

    audiobook.
