Unfortunately his heroic actions on the battlefield cost him not only part of his sight, but also his peace of mind.

Editorial Reviews

Daydrmzzz - Reviewer Dawn
Great book- with dynamic, witty characters, smoking hot chemistry and a thrilling plot that's fast moving, gripping, and demands your attention. The heat generated by this story is incendiary, to say the least. I can't wait for more from this suspenseful new series. Perfect combination of romance, suspense, and sexiness!
Pearl's World of Romance - Reviewer Pearl
In romantic suspense it's hard to find the balance between the romance and the suspense plot but Ann Mayburn nailed it. And on top of that she writes amazingly sexy love scenes. Explicit and laced with primal need they are exactly the sex scenes I love to read. In short: this first encounter with Ann Mayburn's writing was a big success and I have another author to add to my ever-growing favorites list.
The Smutty Kitty Book Reviews - Reviewer Kitty
This book Is fast paced and the energy level is high throughout. Once I started reading I couldn't put it down. Full of excitement and explosive chemistry, Guarding Hope will leave you purring for more.
Delphina Reads Too Much - Reviewer Delphina
Ann took a beautiful second chance love story, added some heat, wrapped it in suspense, and tied it with a bow of sexy. Not only does she have a super smexy Cuban hero, but she pairs him with a very smart and successful woman who stands by what she believes in and does what she knows it right no matter the personal consequences. Once again, Ann has written an unputdownable read filled with amazing characters, lots of heat, and my favorite .... true love.

Meet the Author

With over thirty published books, Ann is Queen of the Castle to her wonderful husband and three sons in the mountains of West Virginia. In her past lives she's been an Import Broker, a Communications Specialist, a US Navy Civilian Contractor, a Bartender/Waitress, and an actor at the Michigan Renaissance Festival. She also spent a summer touring with the Grateful Dead-though she will deny to her children that it ever happened.

From a young age she's been fascinated by myths and fairytales, and the romance that often was the center of the story. As Ann grew older and her hormones kicked in, she discovered trashy romance novels. Great at first, but she soon grew tired of the endless stories with a big wonderful emotional buildup to really short and crappy sex. Never a big fan of purple prose, throbbing spears of fleshy pleasure and wet honey pots make her giggle, she sought out books that gave the sex scenes in the story just as much detail and plot as everything else-without using cringe worthy euphemisms. This led her to the wonderful world of Erotic Romance, and she's never looked back.

Now Ann spends her days trying to tune out cartoons playing in the background to get into her 'sexy space' and has accepted that her Muse has a sever case of ADD.
