Clare C's Review

Guardian of her Heart is a quick, easy read. The plot centers on Melissa, who runs a women’s shelter, and Mike, a werewolf hiding his heritage. A romance springs up between these lifelong friends just as a drug-dealing pack leader targets the shelter, repeatedly trying to kidnap Melissa or the bad guy’s wife. The danger element ramps up the tension because there really isn’t any between Mike and Melissa. The attraction is mutual, and there’s really nothing keeping them apart.

The love scenes serve to illustrate the sweetness of their love and really show the reader the depth of their love and innate goodness. Mike worries revealing his shape-shifting abilities will drive Melissa away, but to me, she really doesn’t seem like the kind of person to turn on someone she loves.

Guardian of her Heart lacks urgency, so it makes for a good relaxing read. The characters are likeable and the writing flows well.
