Start the Series with The Guardian of My Soul, Book 1 in the Soul's Desire Kristen Mancuso, daughter of a renowned fashion designer has everything her heart desires, and yet she's still unhappy. After her father's death, her mother's overprotectiveness has prevented Kristen from choosing her own path in life, and she often feels as if she's a prisoner in her own home. Kristen thought her twenty-first birthday would magically bring her the freedom she craved. She was wrong. When her mother hires Alec Warner to be her personal bodyguard, Kristen rebels against it, unaware of the true reasons why he's needed and the very real danger threatening her safety. Having someone shadow her every move is the last thing she wants. Alec is handsome, intimidating and determined to stand between Kristen and anyone who would harm her. Kristen doesn't know what to do with Alec. She's drawn to him, and while he is committed to his job, he refuses to allow her to control him the way she does with other men. Their relationship is volatile and explosive, yet they discover they have more in common than they ever dreamed. Together they face demons from their past and secrets which could tear them apart. Alec and Kristen fight their attraction for one another, but that's one battle where losing may very well give them everything their souls desire...
I have to admit that getting into this particular book at first was a bit hard. I didn't care for the fact that the heroine was rich and lived in a mansion. However, the story for me was saved because the heroine, Kristen, turned out to be a great person with a very nice personality. She wasn't at all what I expected a rich woman to act like.
I found as the story grew, so did my liking for this book. I found that I really liked the length of the book as well as Alec and the over all story even if the beginning of the story was a bit on the slow side.
I found that Guardian of My Soul was worth reading and I will definitely be checking out book 2 in this series. I gave Guardian of My Soul a THREE IN A HALF OUT OF FIVE STARS!
For those that are looking for a good romance on a hot summer day, then I suggest Guardian of My Soul for a nice read under a cool shade. Its fun, interesting, and for me, different then the average romance.
