Kylie Kramer knows that she’s putting her life in danger when she decides to investigate her friend’s mysterious death. What she doesn’t know is that she’s being watched over by a powerful protector. A legend in stone who has defended humanity throughout the ages. A rock-hard savior who swoops down from the sky, scoops Kylie into his impossibly strong arms, and draws her into a world that no mortal woman can imagine…or resist.


As the strongest of the gargoyles, Dag is sworn to destroy the demons that threaten Kylie’s world before returning to his stony slumber. But the burning desire she ignites in him is even harder to fight-an all-consuming force that, once unleashed, can never be tamed. As their passion grows, so do the ranks of a demonic army plotting to take over the earth. When the ultimate battle begins, Dag and Kylie must face some demons of their own-to carve out a love that’s stronger than time…


I received an ARC of this book from the publisher in exchange for an honest review.

I’ve always loved Christine Warren’s brand of paranormal romance. I absolutely enjoy reading her The Others series every now and then. Her stories have that sex and action that’s so well-combined. I think hers was the first erotic paranormal romance that I found enjoyable without being too smutty. The steam was just enough to get a reader hot, but it was never too much that it compromises the plot by focusing too much on the sex.

As much as I love Ms. Warren, I have to admit that I’ve never really read this series. Fortunately, this book can be read as a standalone, so even if this is already the fourth book in the series, I didn’t feel as lost as I initially expected. I like the arc of this series because it dwells on the Gargoyle world. We normally read about vampires, shifters, witches, fairies, andgels and demons and even gods and goddesses. However, I don’t remember many books about gargoyles.

I think I will be looking for the previous three books now that I’ve read this. I ended up really getting hooked into the story and the characters. I think that with Ms. Warren being the author, the other three books will be just as good, so I am going back to read them as well. I hope there will be more books in this series. I still consider The Others as my favorite from her, but this series is also a very good one.


Born and raised in coastal New England, Christine Warren lived in the South and the Mid-Atlantic before hopping to the other side of the country to take up the life of a transplant in the Pacific Northwest. She completely bypassed those states in the middle due to her landlocking phobia. Hmm, need to research a scientific term for that…

When not scrambling frantically to complete her latest writing project, Christine spends most of her time as a crazy animal lady, hanging out with her dog Levi (he’s the one with the hair) and pretending to train him to have some manners. She also hangs out with her horse, Cal—a thoroughbred with a craving for strawberry licorice twists—her goddog, Merlin; and her best friend, fellow author Hannah Murray. In addition to playing with her pets, Christine’s hobbies include identifying dog breeds from photos of their underbellies, appreciating fine and not-so-fine wines, shopping for the perfect pair of Christian Louboutin shoes, and most of all reading things someone else had to agonize over.
