Paranormal, angels,

Guardian angel Selene was so close to becoming an archangel—the supreme of all beings—until she fell in love with Cole, a forbidden dark one. Once she discovers her vampire lover has been kidnapped and the only way to save him is by abandoning her number one priority—Caitlyn, her human charge—there really is only one answer in Selene’s mind, even though leaving Caitlyn unguarded will most likely cause Selene to fall from grace.

But her choice to save Cole doesn’t come without a price…and now Selene is racing against time to not only save her dark lover, but find a way to keep Caitlyn alive as well.

With the help of a new vampire ally, Luke, Selene will push her diminishing angel abilities to the point where her very existence lies in the balance. Now threatened with the chance of becoming a fallen angel or even dying, Selene can only pray she’ll have enough time—and good grace—to save the ones she loves.



Cole waved his hand. “But what about your consequences? If you keep this up, you may lose…” He sighed. “Everything.”
“I may have already lost everything”—my tone sounding subdued. “This might be the last time you ever see me, and this is how you want it to go down?”
“What do you mean by that? Your archangel would never destroy you.”
“No, you’re probably right about that, but it isn’t fully up to him—”
“If that happens, I’ll find you!” he shot back with a sharp tone. “If you become fallen, I’m still going to love you.” He scooped me up in his arms and his lips crushed mine.
I savored the kiss for a moment longer than I felt comfortable. After all, the heat from that kiss would fuel me for the treacherous journey ahead. My hand cupped his cheek, feeling his jawbone beneath the soft flesh. “I love you, Cole. Always.”

Selene is an angel destined to become an archangel, who oversees and protects her human charge, Caitlyn. Selene has fallen in love with a vampire named Cole. Angels and vamps are not allowed to be together, but that doesn't stop these two. With so much at stake we learn the ramifications of falling for  a forbidden love. Selene is at risk within her kind and may never become an archangel. Cole is captured by a demon and now Selene may put everyone at risk including her human Caitlyn, by teaming up with another vampire, Luke to try and save everyone. Luke is a character who seems to be a better fit with Selene and a nice love triangle would of been great to see, although you do see jealousy spring up between these guys.

Unguarded was a well written, action-induced read with only a few speed bumps along the way. The only gripe I really have and I'm sure by now the author is in the mist of writing it, would be a prequel to this book. A little backstory of exactly how Cole and Selene meet and fall in love would really be a great addition to this story. I also felt at times that Selene would go to great lengths for her love Cole, but the one she is supposed to go to great lengths for, and protect, Caitlyn, is basically left to her own defense. Now, remember Selene is an angel who only should be doing good and helping her human, not exactly the case here when she is trying to do her best to save Cole, the most. All in all though, I will say the story was a different take on the paranormal aspect and I did enjoy reading this quick-paced read.
