Marked for death, Desta finds a guardian angel in Gard Gardner who may save her life but seems determined to break her heart as well.



For a large fee, ex-FBI agent Gabriel "Gard" Gardner agrees to protect defense lawyer Lauton O'Brien's daughter from an unnamed, dangerous criminal client.


Desta proves to be everything Gard wants in a woman, but he can't ignore the barriers between them -- her father whom he despises, and her wealthy, high society background which he can never achieve.



Fleeing from violent kidnapping and murder attempts, Gard and Desta pursue their own fleeing quarry, Lauton, who holds the clues to the identity of their mysterious enemy.



No one, not even Gard's former partner, can be trusted, and someone is giving away their locations to their enemy as they travel from the North Carolina coast to the mountains, then back to Gard's home on Lake Norman.



Along the way, they find unlikely allies in Bubba the Swedish chef, a doctor who handles a pistol with the same ease as a scalpel, and a puppy named Barkley.

What the Reviewers Say:


"GUARDIAN ANGEL moves at a very fast clip interrupted by scenes of very sensuous romance. The main characters are well written, good but imperfect people. Several villains leave the reader guessing about motives, and their criminal efforts place Gabriel and Desta in some very harrowing situations. Readers of romantic suspense will love GUARDIAN ANGEL." Robin Lee, Romance Reviews Today






"GUARDIAN ANGEL... keeps you in suspense until the very end. It has action and romance, as well as tension that will have you biting your nails as the mystery is solved." Sherry, Coffee Time Romance





"Ms. Byerly spins tension and suspense that keep the reader guessing who the culprits are all the way to the end. With a well thought out plot, robust characters and well-rounded secondary characters that keep the story intact and moving smoothly, she pens a read that is amazing. This is one dynamic read no one should miss! Get ready for an unforgettable roller coaster ride." Linda L, Fallen Angel Reviews, 5 Angels




"Man, oh, man, this is one of those suspense novels that I’m going to read over and over. Guardian Angel definitely lives up to the title, and so much more. Reading this author for the first time makes me appreciate finding new authors to read, and this one has surpassed all my expectations. Creating such a character as Gabriel, with so much protectiveness in his body and such sexual allure, will make you wish he were for real. That is how good the book is--you can so easily see them together, and the way Gard does everything he can to see Desta out of danger. Not to mention the suspense packed into this book is worth reading and re-read it again. Not only do I give this a 5 angel rating, but a recommended read." Lena C., Fallen Angel Reviews. 5 Angels, Recommended Read
