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 alone 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. 


Protected: Alien Mate Index Book 2 is an amazing alien sci-fi romance adventure.  Book two picks up right after book one in the series.  Protected has its own plot and a sub-plot that carries over from Abducted.  You can read this book as a stand-alone, but you will enjoy it more if you read the first book. 

Two of the main characters in Protected were secondary characters in book one.  Grav and Leah dominate this main plot.  Grav is sent to watch over Leah and make sure that nothing happens to her.  While watching her on Earth, he can’t help but step in and get Leah to safety.  Grav never stopped to think his actions through.  He just knew that Leah had to be protected no matter what.  Who better to keep her safe than him?

Leah hasn’t felt safe in a long time so she can’t fathom why a giant, blue alien makes her feel safe.  Leah enjoys Grav’s company and the security that he provides.  Soon she’s wanting more than just security from Grav.  Leah wants to feel all over and she wants Grav to help her. 

Grav and Leah dance around each other.  Neither wanting to push the other into an uncomfortable situation.  Evangeline Anderson does such a fantastic job of growing their relationship that the reader can’t help but fall in love with these characters.  It’s a wonderful journey about building up trust while falling in love. 

Of course there are many trials and tribulations that Grav and Leah must face together.  I won’t give away spoilers, but you will see some returning characters that feed the main plot.  Then there is the sub-plot with the villain.  I absolutely loved the way Evangeline Anderson portrayed the returning villain.  While reading in bed, I laughed so hard I woke my husband up.

Protected is a paranormal romance with humor, action, and great imagination.  I highly recommend this series.
