The Guardian of my Soul
Soul’s Desire Series
Emily A. Lawrence
“The Guardian Of My Soul” is the first book in the Soul’s Desire Series, and tells the story of Kristen and Alec, two people who struggle with one another, as well as with their own fears and insecurities.
Some have said “The Guardian of my Soul” is “The Bodyguard” meets “Taming of the Shrew”, a compelling look at two people who find they have more in common than they ever dreamed.
Kristen Mancuso, daughter of a renowned fashion designer has everything her heart desires, and yet she’s still unhappy. After her father’s death, her mother’s overprotectiveness has prevented Kristen from choosing her own path in life, and she often feels as if she's a prisoner in her own home. Kristen thought her twenty-first birthday would magically bring her the freedom she craved. She was wrong. When her mother hires Alec Warner to be her personal bodyguard, Kristen rebels against it, unaware of the true reasons why he’s needed and the very real danger threatening her safety. Having someone shadow her every move is the last thing she wants. Alec is handsome, intimidating and determined to stand between Kristen and anyone who would harm her.
Kristen doesn’t know what to do with Alec. She’s drawn to him, and while he is committed to his job, he refuses to allow her to control him the way she does with other men. Their relationship is volatile and explosive, yet they discover they have more in common than they ever dreamed. Together they face demons from their past and secrets which could tear them apart.
Alec and Kristen fight their attraction for one another, but that’s one battle where losing may very well give them everything their souls desire…

The heady smell of male fragrance filled my senses and my heavy eyelids jerked open. In a corner of my moonlit room Alec sat quietly in an armchair. I jumped with a start the moment our eyes met, the throbbing in my chest almost suffocating me.
He stood up and walked toward me gracefully, visibly not affected that I’d caught him in my room staring at me in the middle of the night.
I looked at him speechless and grabbed the blanket, pulling it up to my neck. I clenched my fists around it to block his view of my eager body.
“What are you doing here?” My voice was soft and trembling.
He gazed at me, but didn’t answer. He climbed next to me in bed and I scooted to the far edge of it, but he was faster and lowered himself on top of me, trapping me beneath him. His eyes were glued to my mouth and I knew he was about to kiss me.
Strangely, I didn’t protest and when his lips brushed mine I gently parted them to allow his tongue to join the game. I loved the swirl of his tongue against mine and my arms wrapped around his neck, welcoming him.
The unfathomable physical attraction and the sexual tension floating in the air were enough to make me lose my head and allow him to do things I would have normally forbidden him to do.
A sob tore through my throat as he kissed me with searing passion, his hot body melting into mine and pressing me against the mattress. Threading his fingers through my long hair, he released my mouth and nibbled my earlobe, eliciting a soft moan from me. Next, he traced a line along the curve of my neck, leaving a trail of wet kisses all the way to my chest. With deft fingers he grabbed the soft fabric of my nightgown and pulled it down, exposing my breasts and hardened nipples. His hot breath fanned over them and his sexy groan sent a shock wave of pleasure racing through me, bursting out toward my fingers and toes. When his lips locked around one nipple I sobbed out loud with relief and impatience. He bit it gently in response, arousing me beyond my belief.
Alec’s hand reached beneath my nightgown and he groaned when he found no underwear to stop him. My legs spread of their own accord when he began touching me intimately, probing at my liquid center, expertly circling my most sensitive spot. I ground myself against his hand and next thing I knew he’d slipped down there, pushing my thighs wider still, his eyes feasting greedily on my smooth, creamy skin. Alec buried his face into me and licked feverishly until my legs wobbled. Reaching down, I passed my fingers through his hair, all the while biting my lips to muffle my cries of pure bliss.
Alec looked up at me and I was captured in his gaze. I watched him watching me as he sucked and nipped at me until I felt myself falling. The sensation became so intense I just had to close my eyes.
Emily A. Lawrence lives in Transylvania with her family, hence her love for vampires and paranormal books. She is extremely passionate about fiction and has been writing stories, mostly fan fiction, for years now, but only began thinking seriously about publishing approximately a year ago. Having her family's support, and encouraged by friends and fellow authors, she pursued her dream of becoming a published author.
Emily loves creating new characters with whom readers can identify themselves, and losing herself in their worlds. Usually, she writes contemporary romance in three heat levels: sweet, sensual and erotic. However, she would like to try her hand at other genres one day, such as paranormal or mystery.
When she's not writing, she enjoys traveling and experiencing new cultures, new sceneries, food and meeting new people, or simply reading a good book.
