Daniela is no stranger to being broken and perhaps that is why she feels so akin to the battered women she helps and volunteers her time with. Romance is not something she ever wishes to get herself involved in until she meets Darkyn who has been cursed to be a gargoyle.
Darkyn knows Daniela is his from the first time he sees her. Not only is she his means or being freed from his curse but Daniela has some secrets of her own; ones that have cut her to the core. He's going to have to work past her fear and proving he's not a monster.
I loved this book. It had me from the first chapter and kept me turning pages. It had a strong plot with great chemistry with the characters. I loved how Daniela had such an inner strength and conviction while Darkyn shows a real vulnerability. This book made me laugh, almost cry and kept me up way past my bedtime because I couldn't put it down.
Daniela Salvai works with battered women more as a calling than an occupation. Having seen the bloody consequences of uncontrolled rages, she’s sworn off dating and relationships.
Then she meets the mysterious Darken, a man with flashing silver eyes and a physique to die for. Yet, there’s something not quite right about him.
Darken is Kynd, a gargoyle doomed to an eternity of stone unless he convinces Daniela she’s his Chosen One. Worse, he needs to prove he’s not just a monster prone to violent outbursts, he’s a man in need of love.
Can Daniela see through the Grotesque curse to the true light in Darken’s heart? Or will she turn her back on the man who longs for everything she is fated to be.
