Narrowly escaping court martial for events beyond his control, Major Evan Coulter is approached with an interesting employment opportunity just when he needs it the most. But this job may be more than he bargained for when he’s introduced to a shadowy world filled with paranormal abilities and artifacts.
Tarnished Guardian is a short story prequel to the series, and introduces Major Evan Coulter, the leader of the Guardians, explaining how he came to be part of the team.
The thought of digging up an artifact that was handled by another human being from a distant period in history fascinates me. I love archaeology, as well as all things paranormal. Now take an ancient relic, add a paranormal power to it, and you have the heart of the Guardian series. The series chronicles the missions of a disgraced ex-Ranger leading a ragtag squad of misfits—each with their own unique paranormal gifts—as they search for ancient mystical artifacts. But these aren’t just any old relics. In some cases, these pieces have the potential to change or destroy life as we know it, especially when in the wrong hands.

I really loved the new teaser short story from JG Sauer. Ms. Sauer’s new characters in Guardian are really unique. I’m always amazed when authors can come up with and develop characters with such unusual talents and personalities. Brava, Joni. I’m really looking forward to the new series. If the cover is any indications (pant, pant) we can anticipate not only great stories and plot lines but some steam too!
This short story is an introduction to a new paranormal romance/adventure series Evan Coulter is an ex Army Ranger Major who has been separated from the military in disgrace under mysterious conditions. We don't know what happened, but I'm hoping we find out about in later books. He is recruited by a mysterious entrepreneurial patriot who needs Evan to take charge of a ragtag team that recovers paranormal artifacts from around the world in order to keep the world safe from those who might choose to use the power of the artifacts to control world events. Each person on Evan's new team has special gifts that should prove exciting to read about in future books; one is psychic, one is pyrokinetic, and one can channel electricity. For me this story was a cross between The Librarian and Torchwood (without the aliens), with a little A-Team thrown in. The author writes amazing dialogue passages. I felt like a fly on the wall, and could actually hear each person speaking. Her visual descriptions are so vivid, that it's not hard to picture each setting, and I really did feel like I was there in the story. I am so looking forward to the first full novel, "Search For The Mystic Stone"! The author gives us a little taste of that to whet our appetites at the conclusion of Tarnished Guardian. I CAN'T WAIT TO SEE WHAT HAPPENS NEXT!
