Dr. Fatima Smith can't pass up the chance to learn more about the myth surrounding gargoyles, not that she's really given a choice. Unfortunately, it means more time spent with the very sexy and very bossy Lorn De LaRue. Fatima is considered an authority on Myths and Folklore in Antiquity but what no one knows is that she is plagued by dreams of a gargoyle who ignites her passion. At first, Lorn is just hopeful the beautiful professor may possess some knowledge that might help save his kind; but after being with her, he knows he'll never let her go. Fatima is his mate and she will soon know it too.
I was truly fascinated by the gargoyle myth and lore detailed in the story. The author has created a rich and intriguing world. Fatima is wonderful character. However, I didn't care for Lorn throughout a good part of the book. I'm all for an alpha male, but I felt he pushed too hard and disregarded Fatima's feelings too often. There's plenty of really steamy sex and some great plot twists that make for a very enjoyable read. If you're looking for something new and interesting from a paranormal romance; I think this one is great choice.
For Lorn De LaRue, Gargoyles have always been as common place as the humans they are sworn to protect. It's up to Lorn to make sure their existence is preserved -- by any means necessary. Right now the means would appear to be Dr. Fatima Smith, an ebony beauty who never imagined her interest in Gothic folklore would force her into a world she had never known exist. Time is running out, and Lorn is determined Fatima will come to terms with her new life as his mate.
Fatima finds herself thrust into a reality that includes Gargoyles, Elves, Succubae... oh my! Unsure of the new world around her, she's torn between her new lover, old friend and the beasties threatening the very existence of the human race. Who can she trust?
