Protected by Evangeline Anderson

Grav N’gol is many things. Murderer…ex-con…Alien half-breed…
And a Protector.
More than just a bodyguard, a Protector chooses a female to ward for life and swears an oath to die for her if necessary.

Enter Leah Roth. The luscious little Earth female is supposed to be just a quick surveillance gig for Grav. He’ll check on her and report back that she’s okay—it should be easy.

Only she’s not okay.

When Grav sees Leah’s abusive husband hurting her, he swings into action. Before he knows it, he has Leah aboard his ship. When he’s given a dangerous and difficult mission, Leah volunteers to come along and help…and somehow Grav can’t say no.

But as much as he feels drawn to the lovely little human, Grav knows it can never be between them. For in his past lurks a bloody and savage secret that would turn even the most forgiving heart against him.

From his past and from his true nature Leah must be... Protected at all costs.

My Review - 5 Stars!
Sci-fi romance has become my new addiction and Evangeline Anderson's Alien Mate Index is fast becoming a favorite of mine! I blew through the first book in one night but as awesome as Sarden was, I have to admit that I totally fell in love with Grav and I could not wait to get my greedy paws on that sexy blue-grey skinned alien hunk!

Grav was sent by Sarden and Zoe to deliver a message to Zoe's two best friends and to make sure that they were still safe on Earth, but when Grav sees Leah being beaten by her abusive jerkhole husband his protective instincts overwhelm him and he rushes to her rescue. 

Grav is your typical big bad alpha but for all his fierceness he is an absolute teddy bear when it comes to women. I just adored his gentleness with Leah and his young ward, Teeny. He fell hard for Leah but like the typical bonehead alpha male he felt he was not good enough for her. However when you hear about his background it's easy to understand his insecurities. My heart just broke for Grav but I did want to smack him a time or two over his refusal to bond with Leah.

I loved how Leah's character blossomed. She started out timid and unsure from all the physical and mental abuse that she suffered during her marriage but by the end of the book she was confident and able to stand up for herself. I have to say that I admired the amount of Leah's inner strength when Grav sent her back to Earth. I don't think I would've been able to leave without at least giving him a swift kick for being so damn stubborn over the mating especially since he already admitted his feelings towards her.

Fast paced action, great storyline, beyond smexy aliens and a good dose of humor (Dolorosa in the human body? *dies laughing*) Protected is another fabulous addition to the AMI series and I can't wait to see what happens next in Charlotte's book.
