    One thought on “Guardian Angel”

    1. HUGE 5 STARS!IF I COULD GIVE THIS BOOK 6 STARS I WOULD. THAT'S HOW MUCH I LOVED IT! To be honest, I'm really not in the mood to write a full-length review but I have to say this is one of my FAVORITE Julie Garwood books. I loved EVERYTHING about this enchanting and delightful story. This is a book I will read (or listen to) again and again. Julie Garwood's books are like comfort foods for me. I know that I will always get a delight read full of witty dialogue, charming characters, and feel good [...]

    2. A Regency novel that doesn't have a single ball during the course of the story? Trust Garwood to deliver it, along with one of her quirky heroines.Caine, the Marquess of Cainewood, is seeking revenge against the infamous pirate Pagan for the murder of his (Caine's) younger brother Colin. Caine's plan is simple: he starts hanging around at a bar on the seediest side of London and pretends to be Pagan, figuring out that the real Pagan will make an appearance to unmask his impostor when he hears ab [...]

    3. Another slow reading week but I really enjoyed the little moments of escape I found in these pages. There is really such awesome balance between romance, mystery, humor and suspense in Julie Garwood novels. This hero stole my heart with every I Love You. He never wavered and was so unapologetic and unashamed about his feelings. Caine and Jade will always be a favorite.

    4. 2.5 starsWhat can I say I found the entire story a little too:Everyone is either roaring, bellowing or wailing through most of the story. There is no middle ground between those three. I'm surprised no one's head fell off from all the 'crystal-shaking' & 'wall trembling' tantrums. RME. The constant quick jumps from different range of emotions is really hard to follow and so hammy. It doesn't translate well. One minute a person is bellowing their demand the next line they are smiling tenderly [...]

    5. Julie Garwood does it again. I can't get over the incredible plot, layered story and addictive writing. Definitely on the re-read list.This story follows Caine on his quest to capture the infamous pirate Pagan. He finds love unexpectedly in the form of a damsel in distress - Jade.Caine is a former spy, his gift is hunting. He's retired from the government but has a new target, for personal reasons. Pagan is an unseen, Robin Hood pirate and a legend. I loved Pagan's backstory and how it deviated [...]

    6. Surprise, surprise, I believe this is the one and only Garwood Historical I hadn’t read before! (If it isn’t, then I seriously forgot all of the plotting and characters!)Although I wouldn’t rank this one as high as some of her other historcials, I did enjoy it despite it’s flaws- mostly because of the eccentric characters that populated the story is the followup to another of hers, The Lyon's Lady, and one that felt like was meant to be a part of a series. I don't believe that ever happe [...]

    7. Puanım: 3,5 ama 4 yıldız yapmayacağım. Çünkü ben Julie Garwood, Judith Mcnaught manyağı biriyim ama bu kitabın GARWOOD beklentilerimi karşılayan bir kitap olması imkansız. Evet kitap güzel, her Garwood kitabında olduğu gibi, klasik historical çizgisinden biraz taşıyor, normalde ben bunu çok seviyorum, eğleniyorum da okurken. Hani kızın tam anlamıyla leydi olmaması, kızda bir çeşit yeteneklerin olması, erkek karakterlerin kadın karaktere ilgisini belli etmesi Ama b [...]

    8. I've been professing my love for Julie Garwood's historical romances for years. She's one of my most favorite historical romance authors, and I re-read her books over and over. That said, I haven't re-read Guardian Angel a lot (this might be my first re-read). I absolutely loved listening to the audiobook of Guardian Angel by Julie Garwood.Guardian Angel is a  Regency set historical romance, but it isn't exactly your typical Regency novel. There are no fancy parties attended or  anything like [...]

    9. Yazarı sevdiğim için midir bilmiyorum ama serinin ilk kitabı kadar güzeldi bence. :)İlk kitap kadar eğlenceliydi. :DBir de şeyi farkettim.Öncekinde de,bu kitapda da sevdiğini söyleyen ilk kişi erkek karakterlerdi. :DTabi kitabımın arasında boş sayfalar görmeseydim daha güzel olacaktı. :(

    10. More like 3.5 stars.I'm conflicted with this oneThere are parts that I really didn't like but thankfully most parts are likable. :) I can't also say that I like the MCs though they seem to be badassesere are pirates for God's sake.

    11. Originally reviewed at devastatingreadsI've loved Julie Garwood since I first read this author. Her stories are always romantic, funny and well told. Plus, her characters are all great. I've had Guardian Angel on my TBR list for a while, and I'm glad I finally got around to it. Garwood starts off the novel with the hero, Caine, laying in wait for the pirate Pagan. Of course, Caine is thrown into a bit of a ridiculous circumstance when a young woman comes in and asks him to kill her. From the ope [...]

    12. Usually, I am not really into Julie Garwood books. However, I have just finished The Secret no more than month ago that I surprisingly enjoyed. So now, reading another book from her, I had some great expectations. Especially that the story is set in regency era which I prefer over medieval period. But I just couldn't get into Guardian Angel. I started it, then read some other books while trying to convince myself to come back to it. The beginning of it I found very annoying. The instant very str [...]

    13. 2 bintang ini sebenarnya bukan karena ceritanya jelek. Dari segi cerita malah saya suka kok. Karakter dan chemistry Jade dan Caine tuh bagus. Based on story only, saya bersedia kasi 3 bintang, bahkan 3,5. Tapi saya batalkan setengah bintang itu karena saya gak suka covernya (paling gak suka cover yg ada gambar orangnya).Lalu 3 bintang itu sy turunkan lagi jadi 2 bintang karena buku ini perlu diedit lagi deh. Typo-nya banyaaaakkkk. Sy bukan orang cerewet kok. Penulisan "pantai" jadi "panti" dan " [...]

    14. I really enjoyed the second book of the Crown Spies series. As all the books I’ve read so far by Garwood, I was glued to the couch and couldn’t put it down. Jade was such a different kind of heroine. Though she grew up on a Pirate ship, she was still taught how to act like a ‘lady’ (well somewhat). She is a master of trickery and thievery and knows how to pick any lock. She’s also a great actress who fakes terror in order to get what she wants. Caine is completely opposite. He doesn’ [...]

    15. This book was good, but not great. I generally love Julie Garwood too - most of her books follow a formula: quirky heroine, protective hero. I had readfirst in the series, which is Nathan's story. His sister is Jade, who is the main female character in Guardian Angel. Jade is a strong, independent woman who portrays herself purposely as a weak, crying, distraught woman to gain Caine's protection. Things are kind of convoluted at first and Jade tells Caine lots of different stories - some truth, [...]

    16. Pareil que le précédent, il a 5 parce que l’héroïne, c'est une pirate XDEt qu'il y a un savoureux passage quand elle rencontre l'héroïne du tome 1 qui se finit en comparaison de couteau et conseil pour avoir un bon arsenal pour se défendre XDSinoàn c'est un Julie Gardwood avec un mâle alpha sûr de lui (ahahaha, pauvre Caine) grand fort costaud etc. pas spécialement au bout de ses surprises ici avec la charmante Jade.C'est le genre de roman parfait en mode détente, qui est fun, avec [...]

    17. me quedó debiendo mucho está historia, llega un punto en donde las conversaciones se vuelven carentes de sentido y tontas, le dan mil vueltas a la misma historia. Me desesperó la actitud de Jade, uno esperaría más de alguien que haya llevado una vida semejante a la suya, es insulsa, tonta e infantil.

    18. Koruyucu Meleğim kitabı benim icin bir günde biten soluksuz bırakan şahane bir kitaptı. Serinin ilk kitabı Kadere İnanır Mısın'ı okuyanlar bilir o kitapta kızımız yalancının önde gideniydi. Bu kitapta da yine aynı tip bir adet kızımız var. Açıkçası Julie'nin bu serisini sırf bu deli kızları yüzünden ayrı bir seviyorum. Julie'nin yalancı, çenebaz kızları yazmaktaki başarısına hayranım. Yine şahane esprilerle dolu bir kitaptı. Kitabin ilk yarısı feci gü [...]

    19. I am listening to the audiobook and I also have the paperback. This is my first time reading/listening to this book.At first Jade is fake ditsy but she really is odd and couldn't seem to remember if she was acting or not. I loved Christine in the Lyon's book, but this woman was irritating. She constantly keeps running away because she may be alone at some time and you think from what her inner dialogue says she's become accepting of her new life and then she takes off again. The bad people are b [...]

    20. I remember reading this book a few years back when I was in highschool. Was my mum's. Saw it on the study table, picked it up and read the summary at the back. T'was about pirates and love. Pirates of the Caribbean was pretty big that time and I might have been infatuated with this cute girl. Stupid boy that I was, I decide to give to it a go. Wasn't that bad. Though, if I could do it again, I wouldn't read this. Waste of time.

    21. Evet güzeldi , duygulu ve ince dokundurmaları ile akıp giden bir kitaptı Ama aralarda zaman mekan olgusu içinde kayıp yerler vardı. Okurken hopp başka bir tarafta bulabiliyorsunuz öyle ki e diğerleri ne oldu sorusunu bir kaç kere kendi kendime sordum :)))Serinin 3 ve 4. Kitabını merak ediyorum , bakalım Nathan ve Colin in hikayeleri nasıl olacak Bu hikayede Nathan ın evinden bahsedişi ve Jade nin kötü haberleri veriş Şekli hüzünlendireceğine beni iyi güldürdü diyebili [...]

    22. I had the main twist figured out just from reading the back cover, and the mystery wasn't too hard to solve. Still, it was a merry read. I do wish Garwood wouldn't stuff her books with arguments between the H/h that make the heroine sound like she has feathers in her head, but that wasn't enough of a problem to offset the adventure and fun of the story. 3.5 stars.

    23. 2,5Resumido: él grita demasiado y ella llora bastante para ser alguien que no llora. Se me hizo largo, no sentí nada, me alegró ver a Cristina pero hasta ahí no más. Si solo me dijera que hay historia de amor entre Nathan y ColinDefinitivamente me gustan más los medievales de Garwood.

    24. I liked this when I read it when it first came out. These books don't age well though and I think JG tries to hard to make her heroines cute and loveable. They end up annoying cutesy caricatures. Her historical research could use some help too. I like her contemporary stuff better.

    25. Ne mogu vjerovat da sam knjizi, koju je napisala Julie Garwood, dala 2. Inače sam njezin veliki fan, ali ovom knjigom me razočarala. Sve mi se činilo prebrzo. Ti pretjerani iskazi ljubavi, pretjerana zabrinutost, pretjerana sladunjavost Očekivala sam puno, puuuuno više. Mislim da je za loš dojam knjige kriv i sami prijevod. Čak mislim da su neke rečenice i izbačene iz izvornog oblika knjige. Postojale su riječi koje su me izrazito iznervirale, ali se nisam trudila zapamtiti ih pošto m [...]

    26. Bagus, kocak, dan aku suka karakter cewek2 disini terutama Christina dan Jade (sang Pagan) yg pura2 lemah tapi ternyata kuatdan bisa men-drive hero nya jadi termehek2 dan ga sadar kalo mereka di drive hahhahaha.Walaupun bacanya cukup lama karena aku sibuk banget, Caine lumayan juga nih terutama soal taktik nya ngajak uhuk2 dengan alasan ngajarin "dansa"dansa yang gak bermoral kalo menurut Jade yg lugu apalagi pas jade bilang "kita mau belajar dansa lagi ya? apakah aku harus berlutut lagi? " aku [...]
