Book Description:

Case Thomas is always in control whether its on the basketball court, the lab where he works, or in his love life. He thinks he has everything all figured out. All that changes when his parents pass away during his last year of college and Case is thrown into fatherhood when he becomes temporary guardian to two adorable twin toddlers. Weeks later, exhausted and running out of time, Case must decide if he's ready to become a father to these children, or give them up and move on with what's left of his life. Then he meets Gabbie Vaulst.

Gabbie is amazing with the kids, owns her own business, and has all the right curves in all the right places. She can tell Case is attracted to her, but does he really love her or is he just settling for a surrogate Mom who can wrangle his new kids? Knowing that she's falling in love with him, she chooses to push him away until his world straightens out. Can Case prove to Gabbie, and himself, that his feelings are real? Or is this sudden family too much for both of them to handle?

The odds, as well as members of their past who've come out of the woodwork, are against them, but when kids are involved, all bets are off.

Book Excerpt:

Case rushed through the doors of the daycare center as if on a mission. Gabbie was talking to Mandy and a few of the mothers were picking up their children in the lobby when he took Gabbie’s face into his hands and kissed with a passion that shook her to her knees.

As his velvet tongue was delving into her yearning mouth, she lost all thoughts of decorum. All those near misses, all those fantasies she’d been having held no weight against the feel of his lips on hers. His fingers tangled in her hair that she had left down and just when she thought she was going to explode, he separated their lips, but still held her close.

“There will never be a perfect moment to kiss you. I have two kids now that will destroy any romance I try to bring into your life. But I will bring it as often as I can because you’re the first thing ever that instantly felt right. And it isn’t for the last few weeks. It’s for the last few years. If I’d met you a year ago I would have felt the same way I do right now. I want you. I hope you can handle me and all issues I have right now because I’ll give up a lot, but I won’t give up you.”

“Marry him. Marry him now,” Mandy ordered and Gabbie slapped her away but kept her eyes locked on Case’s.

My Book Review:

The Guardian's Heart is a story of love, loss and family that will pull at your heartstrings. Author Michel Prince weaves an emotional tale of a young man who becomes the guardian of his two year old twin sister and brother after the tragic death of their parents in a car accident. 

Case Thomas was enjoying his last year in college, but his carefree world was turned upside down with the death of his parents. Case struggles with the daily responsibilities of being the caretaker to his siblings, but a chance meeting at a Walgreens brings an angel named Gabbie Vaulst to his aid. 

Gabbie Vaulst has had her share of problems in life, she had her heartbroken by a high school boyfriend, and now she plays it safe and guards her heart. She runs a successful daycare center, and when she happens upon sexy Case Thomas struggling to handle the twins, she knows she has to step in and help him out. 

Case and Gabbie are attracted to each other but their relationship and family dynamic is tested when people from their past threaten their future. 

The Guardian's Heart will draw you into Case and Gabbie's story and take you on an emotional roller coaster ride as their love story unfolds. Their ability to find love and maintain a family structure for the twins while overcoming difficult personal obstacles is heartwarming and inspirational. You can't help but feel for the Thomas family and cheer on Case and Gabbie's fledgling relationship. Author Michel Prince does a wonderful job of pulling out all the stops as the reader becomes emotionally invested in this young family. 

With realistic characters; engaging dialogue and interactions; and a nice balance between family dynamics, sensuous romance scenes, and dramatic twists and turns, The Guardian's Heart is an endearing romantic story that will leave you smiling.
