About The Guardian:
From the Amazon Bestseller author of The Asset and The Stranger, comes The Guardian.
Game Warden Matthias Hawking is a decorated ex-SEAL engaged in a grueling fight against ruthless poachers in Africa. He’s short on resources and long on enemies. There’s a price on his head. The last thing he needs is the unexpected arrival of a beautiful but stubborn journalist threatening to uncover his secrets, an alpha female challenging his alpha male and getting into trouble, a hurricane wearing boots.
Jade Romo is a veteran of several different kinds of war. She’s survived her heroin-addicted mother, the foster care system, and the conflict in Afghanistan. Jade’s tough, confident, cynical, and self-reliant, a woman who doesn’t believe in forevers. But when she defies the poachers and lands at the top of the warlord’s kill list, she’s forced to rely on the skilled, attractive but supremely infuriating game warden who has captivated her body’s undivided attention.
Haunted by his past but driven by his courage, her mysterious guardian will do anything in his power to protect the woman who has captured his heart.
About the Author:

A Georgetown University graduate, Anna enjoys traveling, hiking, skiing, and the sea. Writing is her addiction, her drug of choice, and what she wants to do all the time. The extraordinary men and women she met during her years as a Navy wife inspire the fabulous heroes and heroines at the center of her stories.
When she stays put—which doesn’t happen very often—she splits her time between Colorado and Florida, where she lives with her indulgent husband and a very opinionated cat.

Jade Romo is a conservation and media star. Her no-nonsense attitude, and drive to deliver the truth, has won her a legion of fans. Unfortunately, these qualities are about to make Matthias' job a lot harder.
Wow, I enjoyed that a lot more than I was expecting!
I mean, I like to read Romance books, but it's rare they ever score highly for me.
This is the first book I have read by Anna del Mar, and at the time, I didn't realise it was the third book in the Wounded Warrior series. I'm happy to report that this can be read as a stand-alone.
Jade travels across the world, so she can blog, photo and film animals in the wild. She's adventurous, and independent; happy to face the dangers alone, as she always has.
She doesn't have a great people-charming qualities, and says whatever is on her mind, regardless of what trouble it will get her in.
When she heads to Africa on her next mission, she couldn't deep the problems go.
Matthias is an ex-SEAL, who has moved on to run one of the most successful nature reserves in Tanzania. He runs the research facility with military precision, and always has his head in the game, until Jade steps off that plane.
This was awesome, and appealed on so many levels.
You have the wildlife, and the exciting location.
You have the threat of poachers.
And you have Jade, who turns out to be a lot tougher than you would first think.
It is a Romance, but it also has an excellent plot that holds it's own, as the poaching leads to a much bigger adventure.
I would definitely recommend this, and I'm looking forward to reading more of del Mar's work!
