A Stone's Release

Book Two of the Quinguard Immortals

The Stone’s Release is Kerry A. Jones’ book two of her Quinguard Immortals Series and her latest release. This is a fast-paced, page-turner that you won’t want to put down. This book contains the vivid imagination and intriguing plot of a great contemporary paranormal romance story.
In this book, Bailey is a woman, who in a moment of pure desperation casts a spell to right the wrong she feels that she has done to her sister. What she doesn’t know is that she has awakened and freed Ash, an immortal Quinguard warrior from his prison of stone. Together they face an adventure of a lifetime, find and fight for a love that will stretch beyond time itself.
Jones weaves a fascinating story with great complex intelligent characters and love beyond the bonds of imagination. I love how the plot twists and turns and how the romance just adds to the story. This book makes you want to read more, so you can understand the complexities that haunt the back-story of these immortals.
Even though this is a stand alone book, the history with the secondary characters make you want to know what has happened before, so after you read this book you may want to read the first in this series Cast in Stone, just to fill in some of those gaps that you are dying to find answers to.
This is a book as well as a series that I would recommend to anybody.

Book Blurb for A Stone's Release

Seven centuries fell aside with her summons.

“Where are you?” With the woman’s three elusive, filmy words, Lord Stefan Ashworth is broken free from a centuries-old punishment. Cursed with the rest of an elite medieval army called the Quinguard, the gypsy king and healer has been turned to stone by night—a fate he did nothing to earn. Traveling from an Italian cathedral on the Mediterranean around the world to find the source of the woman’s voice, Ash is set to discover the truest meaning of gypsy magic.

But was he her soulmate—or a trick of the ritual?

Physicist Bailey Valo has always lived on the fine fringes where science and religion meet. Torn with grief over the disappearance of her twin sister and her own role in the possible death of her sister’s lover, she turns to a solution she might never have considered before. A spell. A ritual. A cry from her heart. And when a golden-eyed god of a man appears on her doorstep in the middle of nowhere, dreams and myth are about to become her reality.
