The last thing Snow Leopard shape shifter Dominic expects to find at an accident scene is his mate, the beautiful Adele. After four years of him dreaming of her, there she is, right in front of him. However, winning the heart of his lonely, grieving mate is no simple task. Just as their relationship begins to heat up a gravely injured child, Kelly, stumbles into their lives after escaping and fleeing her abuser. Will Dominic and Adele's bond grow stronger as they nurture and protect Kelly? Will their relationship be able to survive all that fate plans on throwing their way?
Snow Leopard shifter Dominic feels the pain and grief coming from his mate. But he has no idea who she is or where she is. After seeing his fathers advice, he learns that it could be years before he finds her but will have to feel every drop of pain she may feel and he won’t be able to do anything about it. Four years have passed, and he finds his mate at a accident scene his team arrives to aid. He never imagined that he would find her here in all places. But he will need to tread carefully to not scare her away especially knowing how she views men. Adele doesn’t know what to make of Dominic even though he makes her feel more safe and content than she has ever felt before. But right when their relationship begins going deeper, they discover a young girl in need of help, a girl that will make them a family unless the villain behind it all destroys them…
Plot and Story Line
This is one of those books I saw at Netgalley, and there was just something about it that drew me in and I knew I WANTED to read it so badly and I am so glad I listen to my instincts about books. And I was so right, this book totally beat my expectations. I love a fun and mysterious shape shifter romance that pulls me right in, and this totally did it for me. What I really found a bit different was seeing how shifters in this world, dream and feel their mates sometimes years before meeting them. The scenes of their dream sharing before they meet are quite priceless. And I know not everyone is a fan of having children put in a romance, but I enjoyed the way that Kelly is put in the story. Now her story is quite heartbreaking but I really loved seeing the way that they love her immediately since she has been through hell all of her life. She has never really known safety or love, and I found it so endearing seeing the way that Dominic and Adele just accept her unconditionally as if she was born to them. The romance that develops between Dominic and Adele is pretty tender and sweet, what I liked most was how even though Dominic keeps a secret from Adele, she doesn’t punish him forever or too badly for it. He does have to work for it though in the end.
What I like is the way the focus of light is on the cover…adds a certain dimension to it that I just like.
Guardian’s Heart is a heart wrenching story of sacrifice, healing and love….a romance that will keep you in suspense from beginning to end!!! A PURE DELIGHT!
