From the Keeper Closet: Guardian Angel by Julie Garwood Back to Blog
Okay, let me just go ahead and say this–I’m a HUGE fan of Julie Garwood‘s historicals. Often funny, always emotional, I just love her tales!
So, when I went to the Keeper Closet today, I knew that I’d be pulling one of her books.
Here’s the blurb for Guardian Angel:
“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!”
Why I like Guardian Angel:
Cuz it’s an oldie but a goodie, of course! Okay, actually, I really like the heroine, Jade. A woman who is much more than meets the eye, I found her to be intelligent, resourceful, and adventurous.
Julie Garwood can craft an amazing story–whether she’s writing historicals or contemporaries, but I’ve always had a soft spot for her historicals. In Guardian Angel, she weaves a web of deception, deception based on good intentions, but deception nonetheless. The characters are strong, capable, and the chemistry between the Marquess and his lady is undeniable.
A fun, entertaining tale.
Oh, and did I mention that I just really love pirate stories, hmm?
Next time, I’ll profile one of my favorite paranormals. Stay tuned!
