“GUARDIAN’S BOND was really easy to fall into.”
~ Under the Covers
I’m on a quest to fall in love with a new shifter romance series. This one has been on my radar since the first book came out and also because I’ve been wanting to try Rhenna Morgan for years. GUARDIAN’S BOND was really easy to fall into.
The heroine, Kateri, and her brother were raised to believe they were fully human. When their parents are dead, their grandmother decides it’s time that they finally find out about their supernatural past. To get protection and rejoin the pack she brings them to the Alpha, Priest Rahandras, who immediately recognizes Kateri as his mate and their path goes from there in learning about who they are and becoming part of the pack while having the threat of Priest’s evil brother looming.
I’m not the biggest fated mates fan because usually there’s a lot of caveman behavior from the hero in saying “you’re my mate and you have to be mine and be by my side”. I was really into the way Rhenna Morgan handled that making it necessary for the male to woo his female without playing the mates card. Another thing I found fascinating was the shifter culture. To me it had some parallels with Native American culture in how the spirit animal is seen, the spirit walks, and even the role the Alpha plays in a new shifter finding their spirit animal for the first time. Also, they can be different animals. Basically the whole concept of the shifters in this series feels new and interesting to me and is the thing that will keep me reading this series. I haven’t read shifters quite like these before.
I think this is a great entry book if you are not a PNR reader, but it’s also a refreshing take on shifters if you are a seasoned PNR reader. I know I’ll be looking out for more in this series soon.

I get easily distracted by pictures of sexy guys and have tons of book boyfriends.I keep all my alpha males chained to my basement and guard them fiercely.*Back off bitches*I like to see Jason Momoa as a lot of those boyfriends, because ….. mmmmmmm JASON.MOMOA!
I’m a part time graphic designer (yes, everything you see on UTC has been done by me), run my husband's business from home and on a good day I’m a self appointed superwoman (she who can do it all).I love blogging with my girls and I couldn’t do it any other way!My first love is everything paranormal, but in the past few years I’ve re-learned to love contemporary romance.Every once in a while I like to mix things up with a historical romance, a steampunk or an LGBT book.Because I need variety to avoid book slumps.I don’t always need an HEA although I prefer one, and I love authors that can rip my heart out and make me ugly cry.
