My Review: 

**My review is based on reading ONLY Guarding Her Secret by Candice Gilmer. I have not read the rest of the stories in the Anthology**

Guarding Her Secret, by Candice Gilmer, is one of the short stories in the Taming the Monster Anthology. It is the only one that I have read, so far, but just this one story is worth the price tag!  Featuring Reese from Ms. Gilmer’s Saving Her Destiny, this fairy is called upon to protect and talk to his ex-girlfriend, Viola. Viola lives in the Highlands and runs a bar, talking and mingling with the locals and visitors there to see if the lore of the town is true. What is the lore? The Loch and the Loch Ness Monster. Viola keeps tabs on the stories and sightings to make sure the tourism stays and the creature isn’t seen too often or too well. Why does she care? Because Viola IS the Loch Ness Monster! She was cursed by a witch many years ago because as a mermaid she had to stay in salt water and could not enter bodies of fresh water. Now she has to enter the Loch every three days before she transforms or she will become the monster forever. 

Also in the area is a famous TV host of Exploration TV, Jordan Doors, who investigates folk lore and proves them wrong. Only, this time his team actually sees the Loch Ness Monster with a fairy on its back and then leaks the footage to the public. Reece and the Templar have to fix this mess and make sure the humans do not discover the truth to the myth of the creature. But, while there he falls back in love with Viola and doesn’t remember why he abandoned her in the first place.

Having read and LOVED previous books featuring the residents of Avalon, I had high hopes for this story. What I got was not only everything I hoped for, but a lot more! Not only did the details bring the story to life, but they created such a vivid imagery that made me want to get to know the cast of characters on a more personal level as friends! This author breaths so much life into her work that I never want the story to end and want more and more and more. Candice Gilmer has fast become one of my go-to authors because whatever she writes I love. 

*I received a complimentary copy of this story in exchange for an honest review.
