Guarding Poppy by Christine Wenrick

Men of Brahm Hill #2                                                                                                                                   Publish Date August 1, 2014 by Red Tree House Publishing

Alec Lambert was born to lead. He’s a ruling Elder of The Brethren, possessing steely confidence, natural smarts, and decisive problem solving abilities . . . and he’s not too bad on the eyes, either. Everything in his life has gone exactly according to plan—until the night of Brahm Hill. Alec loses his best friend at the hands of the uncle he trusted like a father, along with his previously unshakable faith to lead those with whom he’s charged. Despite this, he continues to press ahead, and for his next assignment he’s asked to protect a very beautiful but very clumsy Dhampir who’s being hunted by a powerful warlock. Suddenly, he finds his whole Brethren world is turned upside down . . . and he finds himself harboring a desire for her he can’t explain.

Poppy Honeywell knows she’s far from perfect. Bad things tend to happen when she’s around. She’s more than a little clumsy, with a phobia or two mixed in. Not to mention that her name is certainly unusual. But she doesn’t have time to worry about all that because she’s on the run and not about to back down from the arrogant Elder who’s just been assigned as her protector. The real problem, though . . . she’s irresistibly drawn to this man who faces constant danger and takes charge so naturally. But Poppy also sees that taking charge of others helps Alec mask his own very deep pain.

My Thoughts….

Oh, Alec… I have waited a long time to hear his story.   He is strong, faithful, and oh so sexy!  From the very first time Poppy fell into Alec the sparks were obvious and hot.  I loved how Alec did not let Poppy get away with the poor me, I am cursed, line.  It seemed that was her excuse and he was quick to turn it around on her every time she said it.   Alec has become the Elder that I hoped he would become.   He follows the rules, yet knows when they are meant to be bent a little.  Keeping his word to Joseph by protecting Poppy at all costs showed his amazing character strengths.

Christine Wenrick made me so happy in bringing back the past character of Kane, mmm still dream of him, Jax and Gemma, and of course, Olivia and Caleb.   I will say that this is a series that is probably best read in order, starting with The Charmed Series, but each book has just gotten better and better.   I still recommend this entire series to all my friends who love the paranormal with a twist of romance.
