Publisher's Summary

1200 A.D. - After decades of warring between the Lairds of Kerr and Prudhoe Castle in Northumbria, a tentative peace is reached. The Lady Carington Kerr is sent to Prudhoe as a hostage to ensure her father's good behavior, and a more reluctant hostage there never was.
Small and dark, with emerald eyes and a luscious figure, she is as gorgeous as she is fiery. Enter Sir Creed de Reyne; a gentle giant of a man, he is, by nature, calm and wise. He is the ice to Carington's fire. As Carington resists the attempts to keep her in her English prison, Creed is placed in charge of the captive as both jailer and protector.
But Creed is also as reluctant a protector as she is a hostage; six months prior, he had been given the important assignment of escorting Isabella of Angouleme from France to England as the bride of King John. Isabella, a woman-child of twelve years, was smitten with Creed from the start. When he spurned her advances, she fabricated a story of Creed's indiscretions against her and brought the king's wrath upon him. Creed fled to Prudhoe and straight into another assignment guarding a firebrand of a young woman.
Creed soon discovers that Carington is far different from the petty child who would become queen and against both his judgment and his wishes, he falls for the Scots lass. Suffering through tragedy and triumph, Creed and Carington have a love that only strengthens with each passing moment. Even when Creed is forced to flee for his life and leave Carington behind, their only thoughts are of being together again.
With Isabella and King John closing in, Creed and Carington must fight for their very survival as two countries and a kingdom seek to separate them.

Would you consider the audio edition of Guardian of Darkness to be better than the print version?

I do prefer the written version, but the audio version is also excellent. Brad Willis has an excellent voice as a narrator!

What was one of the most memorable moments of Guardian of Darkness?

This story was fantastic from beginning to end; really breathtaking!

Which scene was your favorite?

The several scenes of tenderness and passion between Creed, a handsome and calm English knight and Carington, a fierce, stubborn, headstrong young Scottish lady!

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

After listening to this audio, I felt consumed by beautiful emotions that I never wanted to end.

Any additional comments?

This author is a storyteller that gets you hooked the moment you start reading her stories. She skillfully blended romance and intrigue and weaved her characters into her story. I devoured this book! I strongly recommend her books because she never disappoints!

I tried but couldn't stop listening! OMG !!!

If you love historical romance then just get the book. Don't worry about Brad Wills being able to voice you through it. He does such a great job! Love his voice! OMG, I just about swooned at that deep voice! Think he put a spell on me?! I stayed up for the past several nights just listening to see what happened next. You HAVE to get this book if you truly love historical romances and deep sexy male voices. :)

I really enjoyed the story but found a lot of the stories were repeated over and over and was a bit to repetitive regarding the happenings in the story, but overall a good story and a very good narrator, will read another book before I make my decisions regarding author, but do appreciate a good story, Thank you
