Urick is a magnificent beast—when he isn’t turning to stone. He’s not just grizzly bear and gargoyle, he’s also vampire, a part of himself he keeps locked down tighter than the nails in an undead's coffin. Uri’s hatred for vampire’s is personal. He needs to find his Chosen One, the woman fated to be his mate, before his anger turns him to stone for good.
Too bad his Chosen One is a vampire.
Violet isn’t proud to be a vampire, but she’s trying hard to make up for it. Her hunting blade has more vampire blood lodged in its hilt than a blood bank. Uri would be next on her list if he wasn’t so quick and strong. He’s kidnapped her and stripped her...of her weapons, although Violet wouldn’t mind a little romp with her captor, gigantic flaws and all. After all, she has a flaw of her own, one she must keep hidden. Her father is the vampire who imprisoned Uri to be his blood slave.
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.
