Attracted to it in a way a girl shouldn’t lust for a stone gargoyle, she revists it at night, longing to feel its embrace. Little does Fil know, her desire for this stone cold beast is about to heat up a notch.
Locked in stone for centuries, Spar has slept, waiting for when a human would need him. When he is awoken, Spar is taken aback to find that a human female needs his help. A very sexy woman who’s about to be the victim of a cultist attack. Saving and leaving her should be no problem. But as more questions arise, Spar knows that he cannot rest until Fil is safe in his arms
Felicity can’t believe she has lowered herself to become a criminal….like a thief in night she has stolen into a art museum, to find the location of a certain gargoyle statue and take it…all thanks to her friend. But upon finding it, she comes across a creature, that tries to kill her, With her great instincts she barely survives, and finds that the gargoyle is not just any statue, he has come to life in a full rage all out to protect her, and with his claws she is more than grateful for his intervention…but she never imagined such creatures existed, especially one that makes her heart beat faster and get all the blood flowing. Spar has been locked in stone for many years, and awakens when he finds a human woman in need of his aid. Soon he discovers that things in the world have changed drastically, and evil forces are at work, and when he finds that Felicity is his mate…he is willing to do whatever it takes to keep her.
Stone Cold Lover is a book I have been waiting and waiting…and finally I had the opportunity to read and review this one. Thanks to St. Martins and Christine Warren for giving me this wonderful chance. When I read the first book…is when I fell in love with this author. And now I just can’t get enough of her. Stone Cold Lover is the second book in the series, and even though you might be able to read this as a stand alone, I would recommend reading the first one. The first book sets the stage for the series, and unless you catch on real easy, you might end up a little confused. But the author does a good job in introducing the set up of the story in this book, so you might not get too confused, but you might want to read the first book though. Just my recommendation.
The story pretty much begins from where the last book ends…so if you have read the first book, then you will love the way this one turns out. The characters are pretty well done and their connection to each other is pretty quick…no slow and steady romance on this one. Hot and steamy from the beginning. Oh boy…these do definitely create enough heat to fog up your windows. Definitely a story that takes you on a adventure that is filled with sexy gargoyle shifters, dangerous evil creatures, a fight between good and evil, and a love story that is passionate, lively, and beyond first rate!!! Fasten your seat belts because Stone Cold Lover will take you on a ride of a lifetime!!! INCOMPARABLE!!
