The Guardian’s Witch
"The Guardian's Witch” Ruth Casie
This was the first book I believe I've read/listened to by Ms. Casie. I have downloaded several more and look forward to reading them. She has an excellent style of writing that makes one feel included in the story. I would recommend this book &/or audio book to any of my friends that like to read a good romance story without getting too bogged down in erotic sex scenes. She handled that part of the book perfectly in my opinion. I very much enjoyed it. I really don't like to give away too much of the meat of the story as I'm afraid it will spoil the experience for others. There were several moments that Ms. Casie sprinkled throughout the story that I found to be touching and/or very intriguing. There were actually several memorable moments scattered throughout the story, The Guardian’s Witch, that I especially liked, however, I can only imagine how Lisbeth felt when she overheard Alex's claim on her, especially since he had not worked up the courage to tell her about their marriage. I read the book first then listened to the audible version since I liked the book so much.
In the audible version, I enjoyed the smoothness of the narrator and the ability to shift between characters seamlessly. Lizbeth and Alex both were favorite characters of mine, and to Ms. Dawsons credit, I felt she did and outstanding job of pulling me into the story with her voice.
