After a difficult childhood and a turbulent stint in the military, Declan Burke finally got his act together. Now he's a battle-hardened professional bodyguard who takes his job at McKay-Taggart seriously and his playtime – and his playmates – just as seriously. One thing he never does, however, is mix business with pleasure. But when the mysterious, gorgeous Suzanne D'Angelo needs his protection from a stalker, his desire for her burns out of control, tempting him to break all the rules…even as he's drawn into a dark, dangerous world he didn't know existed.
Suzanne is an earthbound angel on her critical first mission: protecting Declan from an emerging supernatural threat at all costs. To keep him close, she hires him as her bodyguard. It doesn't take long for her to realize that she's in over her head, defenseless against this devastatingly sexy human who makes her crave his forbidden touch.
Together they'll have to draw on every ounce of their collective training to resist each other as the enemy closes in, but soon it becomes apparent that nothing could have prepared them for the menace to their lives…or their hearts.

5 angelic stars for HER GUARDIAN ANGEL!
As a bodyguard at McKay-Taggart, Declan Burke will gladly take on the beautiful Suzanne D'Angelo when she needs his protection from a stalker. But in truth, it's Suzanne, an earthbound angel, who has been tasked with protecting Declan from a supernatural threat he never thought possible. A 75-year-old virgin, Suzanne is bound to forever be celibate, but damn, does her charge tempt her. With an unknown demon after her man, she's got to keep him close. It won't be a problem.
HER GUARDIAN ANGEL is the 6th offering in the Demonica Underworld series and the 2nd book in the spinoff Masters and Mercenaries Crossover series by a variety of authors. I've grown very fond of Ms. Ione's Demonica series and its quirky, paranormal characters as they scheme and plot amongst each other and those they're charged with looking after. I've loved reading about Suzanne in the last few Demonica and Masters and Mercenaries/Topped books and, before I knew there was to be a crossover series, wondered whether I was losing my mind or if the two authors were stealing characters off one another! The way this crossover series has been developing characters for the last few books has been excellent, and I think HER GUARDIAN ANGEL, in particular, would be the most challenging, marrying the regular and paranormal seamlessly. Ms. Ione did an amazing job, and I loved everything about this book!
Bottom Line: No OM/OW or sharing; condom use; no BDSM/kink; no sexual assault; demonic violence/murder.
