For almost two hundred years, Trace has searched for his mate. Now he’s met Cordray. Brash, sassy, and covered in tattoos, Cordray isn’t at all the type of female he thought his mate would be, but he can’t deny the way his body reacts every time she’s near. She calms him and sparks his desire in a way no oneever has, which terrifies him, because if she has that kind of power over him, what else is she capable of?
Cordray thinks Trace is the most exciting male she’s ever met, but she refuses to drop her guard and let him in. She loved deeply once, only to be spurned when her lover mated another. The heartbreak was so severe, she lost her ability to feel. Trace has reawakened her sense of touch, but she’s scared that if she takes another chance on love only to be rejected again, this time she’ll lose her life.
With both committed to pushing the other away, every conversation escalates into a war of words. But for these two, their arguments are just foreplay. It’s only a matter of time before their desire grows stronger than their resistance. No other has tamed Trace’s inner beast the way Cordray can. And now that he’s found her, God help anyone—or anything—that tries to take her from him.
Bound Guardian Angel is the 7th book in the All The Kings Men series. Usually by this far in, the books are either getting better or dying out. In Donya’s case, her writing just continues to get better and draw me in every time. This story is Trace and Cordray’s. Although we see other characters throughout, our main focus is them. Trace has the power to be the “hand of God,” but he has the issue of his power trying to take over if it’s not beaten to submission, literally. When we find Trace at the beginning of this story, he has been locked up and has been unable to seek help to control his power. He is within minutes of losing the battle over his power when Micah is able to step in.
Cordray is in charge of Trace’s community service so she brings him to her “Asylum.” The place where she raises orphaned children who are learning to come into their power. While there, they manage to form a working relationship, although both have feelings that they refuse to acknowledge. Will Trace and Cordray figure out that they are set to be mates? Or will they fiht their feelings to the point of causing themselves physical harm?
As I said earlier, I absolutely loved this story. There are parts of the story that had me in tears, others that made me laugh out loud, and even more that made my adrenaline pump to see what is going to happen. This is the story that has held my hear in waiting for the last couple of years and it did not disappoint.
