Genre: paranormal romance
Back Cover Blurb:
Stuffy and socially awkward, Broadbent ad Sebastian, Guardian of the Race, has his vision of the ideal woman, too; tall, elegant, cultured, and well-read. But every time he meets someone who might fill the bill, his advances are met with laughter and derision. As hard as he tries to emulate his fellow Guardians; their prowess with women, their clothes, their interests; he just can’t get it right.
He doesn’t see himself as handsome or a hero. She doesn’t see herself as beautiful or brave. Yet what they find together opens new worlds of wonder for them both. It also opens the doors to old enemies and sets off a series of events that threaten the House of Guardians and the people within it. With the credits ready to roll on their mismatched love story, Patience and Broadbent will have to find the bravery and heroism they see in each other, and decide how much they will sacrifice for love.
Getting to know Broadbent better in this novel was fantastic. He’s been one of my favourites since the beginning. I love the way that Broadbent thinks and talks. He definitely stands out as one of a kind. I appreciate the fact that as much as he’d like to be more like the others he’s still content being himself. Pinky is very unique in her own right as well. And holy alliteration with Patience’s name! But it suits her so well that I couldn’t help but love it (and try to say it 5 times fast). The two main characters being somewhat out of the mainstream makes them simply perfect. They’re both one of a kind individuals that definitely have found a place in my heart. I really enjoy the fact that the characters from past novels in the series still play a prominent and important role in this novel, even as Broadbent & Pinky get their time to shine. The combination of romance with family is something that you can’t help but enjoy.
Rhoades definitely has another winner with this one. Her fantastic storytelling and attention to detail shine through this remarkable & absolutely unforgettable novel. It may just be my favourite story from her yet.
