I received this book from the author, in exchange for an honest review.
Summary: Guardian angel Selene was so close to becoming an archangel—the supreme of all beings—until she fell in love with Cole, a forbidden dark one. Once she discovers her vampire lover has been kidnapped and the only way to save him is by abandoning her number one priority—Caitlyn, her human charge—there really is only one answer in Selene’s mind, even though leaving Caitlyn unguarded will most likely cause Selene to fall from grace.
But her choice to save Cole doesn’t come without a price…and now Selene is racing against time to not only save her dark lover, but find a way to keep Caitlyn alive as well.
With the help of a new vampire ally, Luke, Selene will push her diminishing angel abilities to the point where her very existence lies in the balance. Now threatened with the chance of becoming a fallen angel or even dying, Selene can only pray she’ll have enough time—and good grace—to save the ones she loves.
Thoughts: Guardian angel Selene did the one thing Angels shouldn't do... fall in love with a vampire. Her vampire lover, Cole has been taken and Selene is eager to find him. But to do this it would leave her human charge Caitlyn helpless to any and all attacks. But she has to make some choice. Either lose Cole forever or lose Caitlyn and any hope of becoming an archangel.
Angel, Vampires & Demons, oh my! This was a great read. I loved Cole and Selene's story -- and it was made even more interesting with vampire Luke thrown into the mix. The story definitely lives up to the beautiful cover. I'm a sucker for a happy ending or at least a good one... I was a bit worried about the ending, but it pretty much rocked! UnGuarded is a fast paced read that is intense and gripping. Ms. Robertson has created an exciting world, that both paranormal romance & urban fantasy fans will enjoy.
Score: 4 Stars
