The Royal Guard

About the book: Fiercely independent and exceptional, Marisa Donati, a guard for the Monterran monarchy, wants nothing more than to become a member of the personal guard, an elect team of escorts that protects the royal family. Unfortunately, the handsome captain of the guard, Christian Di Stefano, blocks her attempts at every turn. 

Determined to get the position she knows she deserves, she works harder than ever until she is presented with the opportunity to reveal a dangerous secret about Christian which only ends up putting both of them in danger—along with the Monterran monarchy Marisa has worked so hard to protect. 

Desperate to set things right, Marisa must face her growing feelings for Christian while working with him and an elite black ops group to find the real enemy of the monarchy and save the country from a war that will most definitely break out if she doesn’t. 

Suspenseful, with the right amount of romance, and awash with action and adventure, The Royal Guard will send you on a thrill ride that will be hard to forget.

My review: This book is written as part of a Kindle World. I had no idea what it meant, so I asked the author. The idea sounds kind of cool to me. Basically what happens is an author makes their book available to Amazon and then other authors can write as part of the world. This world was started by Sariah Wilson and there are several books in the world now. I have another one that I will be reviewing soon as part of the same world. I'm not sure just how more will compare to this book, but I'm excited to find out.

This book was kind of fun for me, because not only are there great characters like Christian and Marisa in it, but I love that Christy, Jeremy and the gang make an appearance and actually play a large role in turning the ending of this book into the masterpiece that it is. 

I really liked Marisa, she's a strong, driven young woman trying to make her place in the man's world of the palace guard. She knows that she's one of the best in all of the training exercises and that makes her a bit cocky and full of herself. She always feels as though the men she works with are making fun of her and really want nothing to do with her. She doesn't realize that her own attitude is also off-putting for those that she works with. I like that she's really not perfect, and I like that by the end of the book she's able to own up to that. She's also fairly naive, and that's what makes a mess for herself and really for the whole country.

I liked Christian too, he seems to be a decent guy, a gentlemen even. So it's kind of hard to believe when you find out his secret, but no one's perfect, right? I liked that he was willing to believe Marisa when no one else really would. 

This is a fun book with tons of adventure and a touch of romance too! You won't want to put it down until you finish it.

I bought this book from Amazon.
