As a fan of historical romances, this book has got it all. With the added spice of the paranormal that has been added, the book got even better. Having read a book of this nature by this author previously, I can honestly say that it was a joy to read. The story was a beautiful tale of love and betrayal, and the enduring faith of the human heart. The characters are delightful and charming, and quite easily drew me in. I found this novel to be thoroughly enjoyable and totally delightful.

Book Blurb for The Guardian's Witch

England, 1290

Lord Alex Stelton can't resist a challenge, especially one with a prize like this: protect a castle on the Scottish border for a year, and it's his. Desperate for land of his own, he'll do anything to win the estate—even enter a proxy marriage to Lady Lisbeth Reynolds, the rumored witch who lives there.

Feared and scorned for her second sight, Lisbeth swore she'd never marry, but she is drawn to the handsome, confident Alex. She sees great love with him but fears what he would think of her gift and her visions of a traitor in their midst.

Despite his own vow never to fall in love, Alex can't get the alluring Lisbeth out of his mind and is driven to protect her when attacks begin on the border. But as her visions of danger intensify, Lisbeth knows it is she who must protect him. Realizing they'll secure their future only by facing the threat together, she must choose between keeping her magic a secret and losing the man she loves.
