Title: Guardian’s Grace
Author: Rebecca Zanetti
Series: Dark Protectors #12
Five years ago, Adaire mated Grace to save her from dying. Since then he has let her live her life without him. When the Kurjans try to kidnap Grace again, Adare steps in to save her. This is the first time in five years they have actually talked and discussed their futures. But will it be too late for their mating.
As with most people who have read this series, I have been both eager and anxious about this book. Grace and Adare have been butting heads since she woke from a coma and the tension has been high. While not what I expected, I still enjoyed this book.
Grace has spent the past five years getting stronger, training, photographing anything of interest, and avoiding Adaire. While I liked Grace she did get a little annoying with her constant wishy washy attitude towards Adaire and their mating (I wont say more than that because it would be a spoiler.)
Adare is the protective, emotionally withheld, alpha male who struggles to talk about his feelings. Adare was also very selfless. He was constantly putting others before himself, especially Grace, and is willing to do anything to protect the world. I really liked Adare, even with his refusal to discuss his emotions most of the time. These two were a good couple, once they started talking, but they definitely don’t stand out compared to other couples from this series. I still liked them though.
There is also a lot of overarching story progress in this book. There is a new surprise from the Kurjans, we find out what happened to send Grace into a coma, and there is new tension between the races of the Realm. Overall, this was a solid addition to the series and I can’t wait for the next book, which hopefully is Bennys!
