Tempted by the Gargoyle (Boston Stone Sentries #1)
Meet your perfect match this Saturday night—or your perfect match for the night.
The eclipse of the red Supermoon sends crowds into Boston for an evening hyped up for a night of passion, one not to be missed. Boston police officer Larissa Riley wants nothing to do with the media-driven event, but her friend convinces her they need a night out after all they've gone through. They visit a new gothic-themed club where Larissa is disturbed by the attractive stranger eying her.
Roman, a gargoyle shifter and commander of the Stone Sentries, patrols from the rooftop of a club on the night of the eclipse. The Supermoon bodes danger and he puts all his sentries on watch. When a blast of dark magic soars past him, he searches for its origin and fixes on a brunette. Something about her is different, demanding all senses be on high alert. Is she dangerous? Or is she in danger?
Deciding a night with a hot stranger would be good for her, Larissa invites Roman back to her hotel, unaware he is surveilling her. The night takes a dark turn as secrets are uncovered and danger moves in. Her beloved city is under attack. Larissa must decide who to trust before all is lost, including the fate of her closest friend.
This my first gargoyle romance book and I really enjoyed it. For a shorter novel it held a depth that I wasn’t expecting. Larissa is more than who she knows herself to be, even though ever since she was a child she’d realized she was different. What I liked most about her that she was tough, yet empathetic towards others.
Roman (even his name is sexy) is a gargoyle, a natural protector. When Larissa and Roman get together things heat up pretty quickly. At first I wondered if things would’ve progressed to such volcanic levels between them if other factors, such as the supermoon and magic, hadn’t come into play. By the end of the novel I had my answer.
If you’re a fan of steamy romance, action that will keep you wondering what will happen next, and the paranormal, then this book is definitely for you.
