On an island where paranormals walk secretly among humans, can Trevor trust his heart and his secret to a human woman?
School teacher Cassidy Sinclair’s sanity is questioned after claiming to see her hero appear out of thin air. Her savior dies in her arms after intercepting a gunshot meant for her and her student, Allan Branson. The only person who believes her account is the boy’s father who arranges her one-week stay at an exclusive holistic healing spa called the Wiccan Haus off the coast of Maine.
Trevor Green, a paranormal, is recovering—again—from gunshot wounds at Wiccan Haus. His body battered and his confidence broken, he is tasked to protect the woman he almost got killed. The one he’s fantasized about for months and who thinks he’s dead.
This story is a first for me and it is killing me that I can’t tell you what it is!
Two broken and hurt people go to Wiccan Haus to heal. Cassidy is healing her mind and Trevor is healing his body. The staff at Wiccan Haus has even more planned for them. Seems that everyone knows they are meant for each other but them.
Let’s see, I have read about teachers, bodyguards, paranormal, romance, magic and mates; everything that is already in this story. What in the world could I have never read about before? I know, I’m a tease, but I am actually floored. Considering the subject matter and how well known it is, I’m very surprised this is the first time I have enjoyed a story written about it. I have read thousands of books and I sit here in awe. What a fun subject! Now I want more. Please give me more.
While I enjoyed the book, there was something missing. Not sure if it was a certain magical spark that most of the others had or something else. Don’t get me wrong. It is quite a lovely story and I was absolutely rooting for this couple.
Most of the time, at the end of the stories in this series, I am happy and ready to move on. I feel closure and know that all is right in the world. With Guarding His Heart I actually want more. It’s not that they didn't find their HEA, it’s that I wanted to know more about them. What happened after they left?
So while it didn't have the magic I normally look for in this series, I still wanted more of Cassidy and Trevor. In my book that says something, good job Ms. Spear. I hope you have more stories to tell in one of my favorite addictions, Wiccan Haus.
