Underground Encounters, #5

Tracy has been drawn to a particular gargoyle statue in the Goth club she works in. When her ex-boyfriend tries to hurt her near the statue it comes alive and protects her from him. She invites the stranger to her apartment to get to know him better. Danton is a gargoyle and can only spend a few hours in human form unless he bonds with his mate. Danton’s mate is Tracy and he watches over her for a while.

The chemistry between Danton and Tracy is scorching. They make a great pair. It takes Tracy a bit to get what Danton is telling her about where he comes from. It’s understandable considering. The sex scenes were steamy.

Gargoyle’s Embrace is the fifth book in the Undergrown Encounters series by Lisa Carlisle. While this book is part of a series, it can be read and enjoyed as a standalone novel. I found this book to be well written. The main and secondary characters were genuine and fascinating. At only 50 pages, it does not have the feel of a quick read with a clear beginning, middle and end. Overall, this was a great book. While I have not read the other books in the series, I will be picking them up shortly.

A gargoyle statue that's more than stone...

Tracy can't explain why she's drawn to a mysterious statue in the Goth club where she bartends. Stranger still, she's been confiding her innermost secrets to it, as if it were an old friend.

But, when her ex shows up one night, drunk and aggressive, the solid stone statue turns to living, breathing, sexy flesh...

Gargoyle shifter Danton transforms to human form to protect Tracy, the woman he has yearned for. Now, he only has twenty-four hours before a curse returns him to stone. How can convince a woman who didn't know he existed to spend those precious hours with him?
