Review: Her Guardian Angel (Her Angel #4) by Felicity Heaton

Synopsis (Goodreads):
A guardian angel dedicated to his duty, Marcus will do whatever Heaven asks of him, but even his loyalty has its limits. When his superior orders him to gain Amelia’s trust through seduction, Marcus starts to question his mission and his feelings for the beautiful woman he has watched over since her birth.

Amelia has gone from one bad relationship to another, so when a gorgeous guy moves in next door looking like Mr Right, she hopes he doesn’t turn out to be another black knight in disguise. But there’s more to Marcus than meets the eye, and when he rescues her from three demonic men, Amelia is thrust into his nightmarish world—a world where God and the Devil exist, and only one angel can save her from death—Marcus, the angel she’s falling in love with.

On the run from demonic angels and the Devil himself, aided by Marcus’s angel friends and their amazing women, fighting for survival against the odds, Marcus and Amelia discover a love that will last forever.

A love so strong it will shake Heaven and Hell.
My Thoughts:  Hello, Marcus!  Yes, Felicity Heaton has done it again.  She's given us a smokin' hot angel who has passion to burn and the lady friend who helps ignite him.  As an added plus, we get to meet up with the couples from the previous books and see how life's been treating them.  I love that.  I love being able to peek in on previous main characters to see how things have turned out.

I liked that Marcus was just biding his time on Earth, guarding who he was sent to guard until he could request a transfer.  He didn't love the mortal world, he did his job but he never really got involved in the loves of the mortals he was watching over.  As he starts to fall for Amelia and see her as a woman instead of a mission, he begins to change.  As for Amelia, I wasn't sure what to think of her at first.  Her track record with men sucks and it seemed like as soon as Marcus falls on her radar she's gunning for him.  Don't get me wrong, it worked but it seemed a little mercenary at first.  Still, she grew on me and I ended up feeling for her and what she was put through.

I feel like this book has changed the entire dynamic of the universe Felicity Heaton has created.  Something big is introduced and if the series continues I can see it having huge impact on the overall battle between heaven and hell.

The battles are big, the love is even bigger and the betrayals our heroes face is game-changing.  Just the way I like my romances.
