"Spellbinding romantic fantasy"
On the world of Amee in the land of Lladrana, a magical
force warded the realm so that monsters would not be able
to enter. Now parts of the fence are dying, leaving gaps
in the protective shield; monsters are entering and the
powerful group of mages, the Marshals, fights them. They
don't know how to make the dead fence posts come back to
life so they summon an Exotique (a person from Earth) who
will have the power to rebuild the fence.
Alexa Fitzwater, a woman without friends, steps through
the magical arch and into Lladrana where she is
immediately tested by the Marshals to see if she has the
power they need. She meets their requirements and because
she needs to be wanted, allows them to train her in magic
so she can battle the monsters and fix the fence. She
becomes involved with the Chevalier Bastien who wants her
to stay with him. He becomes a Marshal something he swore
he would never to so he could become a shield to Alexa's
sword. The upcoming battle will decide the future of the
realm and where Alexa considers home.
Robin D Owens has written a fantastic fantasy that makes
the realm of Lladrana come alive in the reader's mind
because the author deeply describes the locale so well.
Alexa has spent her life in foster homes and her only
friend died in a car accident, leaving her yearning to
find a place to belong. The people of Lladrana need her
and her lover wants to bond with her so she can never
leave him. GUARDIAN OF HONOR is a spellbinding romantic
