Publisher's Summary

Puma shifter, Del Santoni, has lived her entire life as the heir to a decades' old feud with the Armsford family - a struggle that ended in the death of her own father years ago. Since then, both sides have done nothing but fight and grapple for social power - and Del's sick of it. She's willing to do anything to end the war - even if it means dethroning her own family.
Del begins a secret mission to recover the Maker's Mark. If legend is true, its symbols will reveal the name of the one true ruling family. When the statue is found and someone threatens Del's life in order to steal it, Del is forced to accept the help and protection of her greatest enemy. He is the most stubborn, infuriating werewolf she's ever laid eyes on. He also happens to be her fated mate. Throw in a sassy human car thief who won't leave her alone, a marriage hoax, and tattooed coyote shifters trying to kill her at every rest stop...if she survives the week, it'll be a miracle.
Wolf shifter Zak Armsford has never been accused of being a good guy - but being good doesn't get the job done. Mislabeled and misunderstood, he left Fort Jericho years ago and joined the military to put his bad rep to good use. Now that he's a free man, he's not exactly white collar material. So when his friend from Shifters, Inc. calls with a protection detail, Zak is just hungry enough for some action to say yes.
Turns out his assignment offers plenty of action. Zak discovers he's been hired to protect the Princess of Fort Jericho herself. Del Santoni - his greatest enemy and his childhood crush all in one. Zak can't walk away a second time. To keep Del alive and the statue safe, he'll ruthlessly use his supernatural strength, his connections, and Del's own secrets against her.
On the run, Del struggles with the truth. Is Zak her Fated Mate - or her mortal enemy? Because it's not just Del's heart that's at risk - it's her life.

Good book

Where does Guarded by the Alpha rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It's difficult to compare it with other audiobooks I have listened to, but it's pretty enjoyable.

What did you like best about this story?

It concentrated on one theme, with some background information, and didn't include many additional elements that would have taken a reader's attention away from the plot.

Which scene was your favorite?

Zak going to a ladies restroom and being taken for a peeping Tom.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I did. It was interesting and not long.

Any additional comments?

An enjoyable book with a lot of action and danger, with a touch of humor. Some graphic sex scenes, but not overdone. At the beginning Del's behavior was irritating, but she grew on me. Sudden appearances of the new characters' were a bit confusing at first, but fit with the fast pace of the story.
