The Faerie Review



Five Stars!

“This is my first book of wounded warrior series. So I had no idea how the other books were but after reading this book I am pretty much sure that they will be fantastic…I liked the way the author expressed the two protagonist characters…Romance between Jade and Matthias were awesome and brought smile on my lips at many instances... Overall the book will lighten up your mood and make you to fall for Jade and Matthias. If you are going to love Jade, then just be careful as Matthias will be watching you. What I Liked: The romantic portions and the final combat sequence was excellent. What could have been better: Is there anything like that? NO I didn’t or I couldn’t find it. Recommendation: Definitely Yes, for romance enthusiasts”

Five Stars and Top Pick!

“What an absolutely mesmerizing, fast-paced, action-packed read Ms. del Mar has delivered in this story that started off brilliantly with the heroine standing up to the hero and not backing down because she's totally against his idea of what he thinks she should do… As for the dialogue, it was well-written, highly entertaining and I loved every moment the hero and heroine conversed, as Jade gets under Matthias's skin and vice-versa… Ms. del Mar has penned a worthwhile read in this book where the chemistry between this couple was off-the-charts; the romance was delightful and showcased how right these two are for each other; and the ending had me flipping the pages quickly because of what goes down between the main characters and the poachers… I would recommend The Guardian by Anna del Mar, if you enjoy romantic suspense; the opposites attract trope; the sexy protector trope; or books by authors Sheryl Nantus, Cate Beauman, Katie Reus and Toni Anderson.”

“HOLY HELL ANNA DEL MAR! WHERE HAVE YOU BEEN ALL MY LIFE?! When I read the blurb for The Guardian, I was very intrigued, but I NEVER SAW THIS EPIC GOODNESS COMING! Jade Romo didn't have an easy childhood, and although she was adopted by a loving couple, she still battles some demons from early childhood… Now Matthias was a great hero, although at times I wanted to shake him, but he oozed the sexy alpha male. He and Jade together were TNT together, and while very entertaining with their push & pull arguments, that TNT finally EXPLODED into FIERY FLAMES that lit up the African skyline in it's intensity. And if they were entertaining enough, that cast of colorful secondaries kept me laughing, and I LOVED me some African Proverbs. Anna del Mar is my newest addiction after one book, and trust me it was off the charts exciting, with her super talented writing style that kept me in one position cover to cover with heart racing! Her diabolical twists & turns kept me on my toes with loud f-bombs dropping, and I never wanted the story to end! I CANNOT WAIT to get my hands on more of this amazing author's work, so I'll just end with HIGHLY HIGHLY HIGHLY RECOMMEND!”

“I really like the writing style in this book. I like the location and the details that brought to the story. There are a lot of twists in the book, a lot of danger, and a lot of character chemistry. I love Jade's tough independent nature and certainly fell in love with Matthias and his wounded alpha nature. Very enjoyable.”

“Action packed, page turning, adrenaline spiking story! Matthias and Jade have a well developed relationship that flows well with the story line. This is my first book by this author and I can't wait to read more.”

“What a ride. This book kept me engaged from the first page to the last. Matthias and Jade were explosive together. Both alpha ex-military veterans, they fought for control constantly. They were immediately drawn to each other from the initial meeting. And trouble ensued right away. It was an intense, scary situation, and Matthias vowed to send Jade home to keep her safe. But she had her own mission and fought to stay. Their relationship was volatile, but both love to the fullest extent. I loved the descriptions of Africa and the wildlife. The suspense was off the charts. Another hit from Anna del Mar.”

“This is a suspense-filled, action packed safari - a superb story with great characters in an amazing setting - I loved it! This is another of those rare books where I advise you to read the book, don't bother with my review . . . . Just in case you want to know what I thought of it, however, I'll keep on typing. . . . Jade Romo is a feisty, confident, determined young lady. She's survived a horrendous childhood to become a renowned journalist and blogger, one who uncovers and reveals secrets, fighting for what is right… Matthias Hawking is determined to send her away from danger . . . . Let the fireworks begin! Poachers, drug dealers, international terrorism, human trafficking, spies and secrets - this story has them all. There's also a very special elephant who makes appearances at key points in the story. It is a superbly crafted page turner that had me hooked from the very start. The main characters are both strong personalities and the chemistry between them is off the charts. This is a story to keep you anxious about what will happen next, with so many twists and turns it will have you reeling. This is definitely one of my top recommends to anyone who enjoys romantic suspense, a story to keep you absorbed and entertained from dramatic start to the superb finale!”

“Wow, I enjoyed The Guardian a lot more than I was expecting! I mean, I like to read Romance books, but it's rare they ever score highly for me…This was awesome, and appealed on so many levels. You have the wildlife, and the exciting location. You have the threat of poachers. And you have Jade, who turns out to be a lot tougher than you would first think. It is a Romance, but it also has an excellent plot that holds it's own, as the poaching leads to a much bigger adventure. I would definitely recommend this, and I'm looking forward to reading more of del Mar's work!”

“From the first meet; it was more like BOOM! Fireworks all around – I kept expecting my iPad to heat up – the chemistry between them so absolutely visceral. But this was an attraction; feelings that these both fought for longer than I expected!”

“'The Guardian' by Anna del Mar is Book Three in The Wounded Warrior series. This is the story of Matthias Hawking and Jade Romo. I have read the other books in this series (and Loved Them!) but feel this can easily be a standalone book… Another Hot Exciting Story by Ms. del Mar!”

Romance Book Reviews



5 out of 5 Stars

“I've read quite a few of Anna Del Mar's books, both this series and others. I almost skipped this one since I'm not typically a fan of what I call destination novels. I thought the setting might detract from my enjoyment of the story, but I couldn't have been more wrong. Even if I hadn't read that Ms. Del Mar had actually traveled to Africa, out would have been evident from her vivid descriptions…The action started right off the bat, and the chemistry that took a bit of time to fully develop was evident in the sparks between Jade and Matthias from the start. These two kick butt alphas shouldn't really mesh, but they do. Both are stubborn, and both are infinitely capable. Matthias is absolutely beyond sexy. All said, I really couldn't put this down. I consumed it today within hours and absolutely loved it.”

“Fab read!

There is so much packed into this story but nothing is overwhelmed, everything is there for a purpose rather than as window dressing and filler. The setting is amazing and the characters are really similar but different at the same time! ”

4 1/2 stars

“The Guardian is the third book in the exciting Wounded Warrior series by bestselling author Anna del Mar. An intense, action packed, romantic suspense you won't want to miss! With a unique storyline, complex characters, humor, angst, secrets, lies, betrayal, dangerous situations, and intriguing twists, this emotional roller-coaster of a story will capture you from beginning to end. This was a terrific story, and I can't wait for more of this series! I loved that the author used such an unusual location for the setting of the book… Overall, this was a fantastic story that I really enjoyed. All of the Wounded Warrior books can be read as stand alone novels… I would definitely recommend this book, series, and great author.”
