About this ebook

Shy librarian Catena likes her quiet life…until a huge naked man muscles his way into her house, insisting he's been woken from his centuries-long sleep to be her personal protector.

Catena's life is turned upside down when she's saved by a creature she's only heard about in books. If only her hero's rock-hard abs weren't actually made out of stone.

Tor has no memory of his past. All he knows is that he must protect Catena at all costs.

Can they unlock the dark secrets chaining them to the past, and forge a new future?

CAUTION: This is a steamy gargoyle shifter romance, so if you don't like your heroes hot, hard and protective, Tor and Catena's tale might be a bit much for you.

Oh boy, did I ever love this book!! Who wouldn't want a hunky gargoyle protector even if he has stone-like skin? Catena is trying to finish getting her PhD in Archeology and she is trying to find the perfect research project. She has always wanted to in her hero, Maria's footsteps. Maria's mind is fading, and Catena has had to put her in a special home. Catena now lives in Maria's apartment by herself, and Maria is always telling her stories and that Catena has a protector. Tor has been asleep for many years awaiting the call to rise and protect the one that he was cursed to protect. One day he is awakened, and he listens for the call which he hears one night as Catena is being chased home from the store. Catena doesn't even realize that she is calling for help and runs into a solid object, is enveloped in a cocoon like hold and soon passes out. It isn't until a few days later that Tor and Catena meet and soon Catena is trying to figure out how she can help lift the curse on Tor. They are going to have to trust each other while trying to fight their growing attraction because who knows what would happen if they slept together. After I finished this book, I went and hunted down the prequel and I am looking forward to reading the rest of the series involving Tor's brothers. I voluntarily read and reviewed an advanced copy of this book. All thoughts and opinions are my own.

I found this story very enjoyable to read and I loved the characters Catena who is struggling to decide what field of science she wants to enter for a scholarship for her PhD. Walking home from college at night she trips over a man who chases her and pleas for help which awakens Tor, a gargoyle, who answers her plea. What occurs afterwards was an enjoyable story that kept my interest. I always enjoyed gargoyle romance stories, and this was an engaging read to what looks like a wonderful series to read. I volunteer to read and review this ARC.

Funny, Interesting how this story turned out that Catena couldn’t share her feelings with anyone. looking into her neighbors claims about these shoes she found. Tor maybe can be human when leaving his past behind him.
