Rhenna Morgan doing up a new series? A PNR series and has a character named Priest?
Ummm...Yes. Please. *making grabby hands* Hand it over. Now. (Mind you now was when the series was announced many moons ago but I needed to make a point)
Soooo I may have followed *cough* stalked *cough* a certain site closely for it to become available and quickly clicked on that baby when it did. And though I did have to wait a bit before diving, I was not disappointed. Guardian’s Bond is a lush, vibrant, smexy, sensual start to a and all kinds of intriguing start to a new series with a bunch of characters I want more of, even the baddie.
Priest. Yup, I’d totally worship at the altar that is Priest. No questions asked. No shame. Total kowtow and be absolutely at peace with the decision. The man is the kind of Alpha AF that is calming while causing you to anticipate more, even when that more is not something you cannot put into words, but know you simply want more of. He’s kind, compassionate and has a sensuality that radiates off him without effort.
Kateri. The funny thing about Kateri is that while she did frustrate me, I totally got where she was coming from. I understood why she held back because I would more than likely do the same, at least on some level. But outside of her hesitation about certain things, she’s intelligent, fierce and sassy. She’s also protective of those she calls her own and gives as good as she gets.
Priest and Kateri’s journey is that perfect blend of insta and slow burn that has you loving how the intensity builds between them as they get to know each other, but wanting one of the to desperately pull the trigger so all that nummy sexual tension can be released because you know it will be explosive...and OMG it was. Seriously, don’t bother with panties...just don’t...and have B.O.B nearby and ready to go. The angst was low, but the push/pull was real and with all going on around them I definitely didn’t mind at all and loved where they were at in the end.
This is very much a first in series where there is a lot of world building information being doled out, but it’s done in such a way that it didn’t feel like a full on information dump, it’s more of a learn as you go situation. This does keep the pace of the story at moderate one, but I never felt as if it dragged. I actually liked it because I could absorb all the little details without feeling overwhelmed and found the world simple, yet plausible and intriguing. The characters are all distinct and well written, and I have made it known that certain ones are not to come to harm *BSEG*. And with how things were left at the end of the book, not only with the whole baddie sitch, but that little tease of what’s to come next, I cannot wait to get my hands on the next book!

For decades, he’s been alone.
Now, she’s here. His fated mate.
His to win. To protect.
To provide for and pleasure.
Priest Rahandras has lived with the darkness trapped inside himself for years. Betrayed by his own brother and forced to watch his clan’s brutal annihilation, the only thing Priest wants more than to escape the curse that haunts him—as both man and beast—is to rebuild.
Until the mate he’s longed for walks into his life with an elder from his past. She’s everything he’s wished for, and the key to the clan’s very survival.
Kateri Falsen is a woman of logic and facts. While Priest’s cat can sense her arousal, telling her they’re fated won’t be enough. He’ll have to show her his love: with his words, with his actions, and with his body.
Protecting Kateri from the evil trapped inside him is paramount. But when lost clan members are systematically murdered, he’ll have to choose between exposing his mate to his black magic, or risking her as the next victim.
