My Review

Guarded by Author R. C. Martin is an erotic romance novel.

“I remind myself that I’m not good for her. I need to stay away. I’m not a tender man, and she appears to be a gentle woman. Oil and water don’t mix.”

Jill can’t wait to see her cousin, Corie, again. The fact that Corie happens to be marrying someone famous and well-to-do is an added bonus. There are many perks to that lifestyle, but one Jill wasn’t quite ready for, Leo. He is the best eye candy she has ever seen. On top of that, he is protective and kind. She knows it’s won’t last, but she just wants a taste of him.

“He’s unlike any man I’ve ever known. He’s unlike any man I will ever know. I’ll never forget him or the way he makes me feel. I yearn for him, and I don’t know how I’ll manage to say goodbye.”

This was positively one of the most erotic stories I have read by this author. Leo was the perpetual alpha male. His job, to protect what he loved…at all costs. Jill was the ultimate chaser of dreams, going after what she loved…at all costs.

“Nobody’s perfect; but for reasons I can’t explain, he’s the source of my sunshine. He sets me on fire.”

Although this story definitely rotated around the sexual chemistry and encounters of Jill and Leo, there were also additions, some fun and some hard to swallow, that added to the plot of the story. Friends and family made their way into dialogue and my heart, while others made their way out.

“I’m the only thing I can’t protect you from.” “Then I’ll be the safest woman in the whole word, guarded by the man she loves.”

Guarded was a steamy, hot, and sexy read that is sure to stimulate your heart and libido.

About R. C. Martin

R.C. Martin finds it a bit awkward referring to herself in the third person, so she's only going to do it for this one sentence. (We all know who's writing this bio anyway!)

I'm a born and bred Coloradan. I will always claim that square state as my home! While I now reside in Virginia, the land of the Rocky Mountains is where I've left a piece of my heart and where my characters come to life. I'm a woman in love with love and filled to the brim with compassion for women like me, on a journey to find themselves in today's society. I aspire to inspire my readers to do more than settle. I hope that my writing will remind everyone that she (or he!) is valuable and worthy of the best kind of love--the kind that is gentle, patient, faithful, passionate, all consuming, never ending, and leaves you breathless.

When I'm not writing I'm reading; when I'm not reading I'm know how it goes! I also enjoy cooking, baking, crocheting, and jigsaw puzzles. Basically, I'm an old soul with a young heart, nonchalantly waiting for my prince to come.
