4.0 out of 5 stars Don't worry, it gets better.... Oct. 23 2010
By kadiem - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
At first, as I was reading this book I was extremely annoyed with the heroine. The basic premise of the novel is that the heroine, Elle, is being stalked by a crazy psycho who leaves her threatening notes and pictures showing her being mutilated in various ways. The hero, Falco, is persuaded into acting as her bodyguard until the stalker is found. It is important to note that Elle is a model turned Hollywood actress. In this situation you would expect most people, after receiving the disturbing and threatening letters and photos, would be relieved to have someone around to try to assist in resolving the problem. This is not the case with Elle who at every turn (initially) seeks to dissuade ANY assistance to help with the stalker despite the stalker's escalating behavior. Elle is, of course, stubborn and irrational about dealing with the stalker and insists that she doesn't need anyone and can handle the situation on her own. It soon becomes apparent that she cannot, but she takes her anger at being helpless out on Falco. Her constant fighting with Falco was so illogical to me that I initially thought I would not be able to finish this book because of what I perceived as her TSTL behavior. However, ultimately, there is a pay off describing the true reasons why Elle feels she is unable to trust anyone and it is definitely not the typical crap we find in many novels in the HP series. I ultimately enjoyed this novel and the way it handled the trust issues that Elle faced. A good read if you can hold onto your patience. Also, the chemistry between Falco and Elle is pretty sizzling and Sandra Marton writes their intimate scenes very well.

2.0 out of 5 stars All The Same Oct. 1 2011
By R. Marie - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I stopped reading halfway through this book, it made me want to scream in frustration. The plot line is different but the characters are basically the same as in the first book of the series.

The heroes in both books are controlling jerks who literally push the heroines around and manhandle them. Both the heroes suffer from severe mood swings, one minutes they're happy to be with the heroines and the next are storming off. In no way does it seems like they are falling in love, they meet, fall in to bed together and next day proclaim they love each other.

There is no reason for the hero to constantly be calling the heroine 'baby', especially after she asks him not to. Maybe he's bedded so many women it's just easier to call them that than to remember their names.

5.0 out of 5 stars Another great Sandra Marton book Dec 9 2010
By Ma Magdalena Lozano - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
I bought this book because I am a big fan of Sandra Marton. I had already read Rafe and Dante's stories so I wanted to know about Falco. Falco and Elle had chemistry from the get go and they never let up. Sandra knows what draws a reader and it is continuos throughout. This book was thoroughly entertaining. I was not disappointed. I am going to read Nicolo's story next.

5.0 out of 5 stars Falco: The Dark Guardian Nov. 20 2010
By MNix - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition
Millionaire investor Falco Orsini is reluctantly guarding reticent model Elle Bisette from a deranged stalker whose threats get worse every day. Elle is determined to keep her secrets hidden, even in the face of danger. While Falco and Elle are trying to sort through their feelings for each other, Elle's stalker is drawing closer.

Falco: The Dark Guardian is a good story and I like Falco and Elle a lot. Elle has a quiet confidence and strong determination. Falco is sexy, and he's a dependable guy Elle can feel safe with. He only loses control when his desire for Elle overrides his protective instincts. Unfortunately, the constant push-pull of their relationship wore me down. They're either kissing or fighting; there's no in between through most of the story. It's frustrating because there is chemistry between them. Falco: The Dark Guardian is dramatic and full of emotion and the end is exciting and heartwarming. I just wish there had been less unnecessary angst in between.

1.0 out of 5 stars Macho American type "hero" inside this book, not Italian in any real sense Sept. 5 2014
By CTtwinsmom - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I tried but I could not get more than halfway through this book. I selected this book partially because I wanted to read a book with an Italian hero in it. Despite the hero being referred to as Italian, his language and mannerisms came across as those of a crude all American man. He constantly addresses the hero as "babe" and "baby" and not in an affectionate way. Having spent time in Italy, I can confirm that no man addresses women as "babe" and "baby" . The author tells much of the story from the hero's point of view and he comes across as being physically attracted to the heroine, but that's it. The heroine was tough to relate to also. Usually when you read a Harlequin, you can get inside the heroine's head and understand her feelings and motives. Halfway through the book, I had zero sense of what made this heroine tick.
