Overview

Grace Masters always dreamed of a family she could call her own and always knew that for her, those dreams would never come true. Yet here she is, in an old Victorian home, living and loving under the cover of night. Who knew the source of her lifelong torment was really her gift as a Daughter of Man or that this gift could be controlled and used for something good? Who knew there was another race called the Paenitentia who live side by side with humans? Who knew that demons were real?
Grace certainly didn't until one fateful night when her world falls apart and comes together again in a place where she finally belongs. Sometimes a person just knows when something is right and destined to be. Sometimes convincing someone else of that fact is a little more difficult. Canaan ad Simeon is that someone else.
Canaan is Liege Lord to a House of Guardians whose job is to protect the Race from a demon threat many no longer believe in. Already breaking away from the outdated traditions that are depleting their numbers and threatened by a hierarchy resistant to change, the last thing Canaan needs is to fall for this innocently sexy Daughter of Man. But fall he does, with a mixture of comedy, drama and romance that will touch your heart.

Jacqueline Rhoades is a delightful new inspirational voice to the world of paranormal romance. Once I started reading, I couldn’t put it down. The imagination and energy of the characters infused the vitality of the Guardian’s series. Readers will be drawn in with the star struck action, humorous dialogue, and the luscious tale of danger and romance.

Great start to a series!! Guardian's Grace was full of action,romance and alot of laughter. I loved the characters most of all the twins! Grace was amazing in her mother hen way! Cannan well I would love to bring him home! It did give me a fell for the BDB, but is very different!! I found some confusing moments in the book, where the author would skip from one person to the next without warning and skip weeks or days without reason! But it didnt happen all to often! All in all I really enjoyed this book and would recommend it to anyone! I am looking forward to the next book in this series!

A great beginning to this series with wonderful characters full of laughter and a little heartbreak. At first I was a little loss but it didn’t take long to find me. The author gives you a wonderful plot that pulls you in and takes you way as one group gives everything they have to fight demons and be who they are. Grace stays pretty much to herself and the one true friend she has. If she is in a crowd her head feels like it is going to explode she finds it is easier if she just stays in the shadows. That all changes one night when she is at a club a stranger takes her friend out back. Grace sees more than a stranger but a monster as she goes to help her friend she doesn’t believe her eyes and what they are telling her. What happens next will make you want to cry, scream, laugh and make you want to jump in and help Grace and her friend all at the same time. Holly Adams does a great job of narration it did take me a little time to get into her since she has done some of the Wolver audios I kind of kept her voice for them. Once I got over that and let the story take me way I was pulled in to this wonderful plot and all the supernaturals. Her voice is always a pleasure to listen to, her tones are nice and even with wonderful emotions, there are no background noises just clean easy listening. Her male voices are as wonderful as her female. She gives you a strong powerful listen as she adds humor and laughter to her voice. It is always a pleasure listening to this narrator. I loved the characters the twins will pull you in and keep you laughing at their pranks. The uncle is a delight once he gets over wanting your blood. Canaan is something else I just love him. Grace is a delight with her sense of humor. Both are very strong willed and bullhead. The author pulls you in with mixture of comedy, drama, and romance that will touch your heart, make you laugh and at times want to hit some heads together. This author puts a new twist on a story that is as old as times. She gives you entertainment like you have never seen it. I own this whole series but I am torn whether to read it or wait for the audios. Both are very entertaining. This is an author you do not want to miss each of her series are wonderful, different filled with humor, romance along with outstanding characters. I can highly recommend any book she writes I own most of them. I hope you pick up this along with the other books she writes you won’t be disappointed.

You will not be let down with this paranormal series? Some what different from most paranormal subjects. Not nearly as dark as most.

What a brilliant premise for this novel.  I love how unique yet well developed and put together everything is.  The mythology behind this story is clearly set out for the audience in an entertaining manner.  This fast paced novel kept my attention throughout.  It is extremely suspenseful & romantic, with just the right touch of comedic relief.  For all its twists and turns, however, above all this is a story about love and loyalty and finding yourself.   Rhoades is a very visual author.  Using a multiplicity of techniques she develops a world that you cannot help but see in your mind’s eye.  Her writing style and tone change minutely based on the scene and it’s participants.  She subtly evokes emotions in her readers through this.  The dark and light of the storyline are entrenched in the reader’s psyche without Rhoades every having to state it flat out.  Rhoades describes her scenes in explicit detail, drawing her readers further and further into the story.   I love how Rhoades doesn’t mince her words.  She says what she means in the way real people say it.  This flows directly into her dialogue.  People talk like real people.  Slang and swearing make their way into her novels in the manner that it does in everyday conversation.  It makes everyone seem so much more real when they aren’t speaking like a textbook or sickly sweet.  Rhoades writes her novels for adults without ever talking down to them or simplifying things.  At the same time, the novel is naturally written.  You feel like you’re still in the real world experiencing something amazing. I found myself attached to the main characters right from the beginning of this novel.  Although the cast itself is quite large, each character is individually developed.  Rhoades does a brilliant job of developing everyone to suit their role.  She doesn’t throw extraneous details at her readers.   Please note that I received this novel free of charge from the author in exchange for an honest review.

After reading and LOVING The Alpha's Choice I couldn't wait to read another book from this author. After seeing the 5 and 4 star reviews I decided to purchase Guardian's Grace. What a disappointment. I mean all the woman seemed to do was cry for the first half of the book. Suddenly they are expressing their love for one another without spending any real time together. Not believable at all in my opinion. Wish I hadn't wasted my money on this. Give me a strong heroine any day like  Kat in the Alpha's Choice. These like Grace that cry so quickly and are easily hurt drive me nuts .
