    One thought on “Reluctant Guardian”

    1. Before I even started reading this book, the cover had me a little scared. It made it seem like a very old, boring, chick novel. Well, that was kind of true, but Kristy K. James spun it in a way that made it both old and new, and it turned into an exciting read. Within the first 20 pages or so I was all caught up in the story and wanting to know what happened next.But though it was a good book, it felt like it needed a lot of work, like maybe it was a first draft or something. The writing was sl [...]

    2. This was a pretty good and fun book. The characters were very likable and easy to get to know. Devon was a great mixture of strong woman and someone suffering from grief - and still acting her age. Tristan is a good man who is a bit volatile in his emotions but still sweet. The plot has potential to be more than it was. Obstacles would appear and then quickly resolve themselves, leaving you wondering what was actually going to stay and cause any problems for the happily ever after. It took a whi [...]

    3. Good story. Fun, easy read. Clean romance. I felt a bit disconnected at timeske maybe this is a series, and I missed the first few books. I will have to look up the author for that info. Devon and her brother, Adam, travel to a plantation that has been left in their Grandfathers will. Little did they know, he would make it almost impossible for them to keep it. The neighbor, Tristan, stands to inheirit the property at the end of three years, if they don't meet the requirements. He is ready to ha [...]

    4. I love Historical Romances and this one definitely didn't disappointExcept, there were no"love scenes": in the book. So I find myself in a strange position of actually LIKING a YA romance! It doesn't happen very often so my surprise is warranted.The 'Reluctant Guardian' is about 20 year old Devon and her 18 year old brother.rding to the terms of her Grandfathers will Tristian (a neighbor) is to act as their guardianThe book is completely predictable with the only surprise being at the endBUT, it [...]

    5. This is a sweet book, well written but just too sugary for me.Devon is constantly in tears and far to weak to be a true heroine and Tristran gives in way too easily to her wilting charms. That said, some people will probably love it.It does have some excellent parts. The description of the slave market and Adam's feelings about buying human beings were compelling reading. I was crying with him.I would recommend this if you like sweet romance with damsels in real distress.

    6. I only occasionally read historical novels the time period formula just doesn't hold my attention. However I love Kristy's writing and when I like an Author I read all of there books. This was another good story. I love her characters and her sense of humor. No matter what time period she's writing in the emotion she brings to the story draws me in to the very end. Another great bunch of characters.

    7. Liked this more than I thought I would. Really enjoyed the brother and sister banter. Adam was a terrific well written character and his sister was a pleasure to read. The guardian Tristan was very solid. Really didnt enjoy Constance nor felt her character was necessary.

    8. This one wasn't bad at all, I just felt like the hero fell rather quickly for the heroine with no real reason whyIt felt kind of rushed. That being said, I like all the characters the story was clean, the romance was fun and it was a quick read.

    9. A fun read, if not historically accurate!This was a great plot to read! True, the author didn't quite do enough research, but what do you expect for free? It held my attention quite well!

    10. EnjoyableEnjoyablethis clean historical Romance was fun. the characters were likable. the plot was not over complicated and made for a quick ease read.

    11. decent book. fairly well written. some powerful scenes. most of the characters were likeable. the problems near the end seemed contrived and didn't really belong there.

    12. I quite liked this book - it was a very sweet, clean love story. There were 2 things I didn't like. First, the editing was a bit off and sometimes it was hard to tell who was talking, and occasionally punctuation was missing. The other thing was that I don't know what benefit there was to the story to mention the relationship between Constance and Tristan at the beginning of the book. They didn't even NEED to have built a relationship between them. But other than that I quite liked the book.

    13. Ok I guess.Was pretty good considering that time passed oh so slowly. Maybe we just live in a faster paced world. I believe this story could have been written in three chapters of thirty words. Amen
