THIS IS THE SECOND EPISODE OF SIX in the True Alpha serial.

Shifters live in the shadows of Seattle, just under the skin of the alpha male, dot-com entrepreneurs who are building a new Silicon Valley in the Emerald City.

As Lucas fights his instinctual attraction to Mia, focusing instead on guarding her and keeping her safe from the Red pack, Mia tries to discover the truth about Lucas’s dead mate.

Ooh, the plot thickens.  Where as Desired was more story introduction, Guarded gives us a little more meat on the bone.  Lucas' past unravels just a tad and we really get to know Mia's character.

Which, I LOVED.  I wasn't quite sure how much I was going to relate to her in the first episode but man, she won me over in this one.  Mia is feisty, sexy and smart.  She pushes Lucas just enough to keep him intrigued yet not enough to have him completely running for the hills.

Plus, there is some emotional turmoil that shines through from her past.  You feel a compassion for the girl she was and it makes me admire the woman she is, even more.

Lucas is a bit of an ass hat, but with cause. He's guarded (hmmm, the title) and unsure of what the right path is.

The sexual tension is explosive, the desire palpable, the sex exciting.  The story, in a word...intriguing.
