Heart of Stone by Christine Warren
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.
Gargoyles are usually not my favorite type of paranormal romance, but this book was really well done. I was rooting for the main characters to end up overcoming all the insane obstacles placed in their way. Ella is a great tough chick main character to balance the overbearing nature of Kees (the gargoyle).
So how does one end up falling in love with a gargoyle? Well, to be fair, Kees is mostly in "human form" during the initial falling in love parts of this book. Ella is a woman who has been battling to control a magic inside of her that she has been dealing with her entire life. One horrible night at her job in the museum, she seeks solace at the base of her favorite sculpture -- the gargoyle. After another attack, she is faced with a real living gargoyle who is in charge of protecting her.
This is something like a bodyguard story with a paranormal twist. Kees is your typical dude, fighting his feelings every step of the way. Ella is your not-so-typical chick, willing to have some sexy times to "prove Kees wrong". Sure. Whatever gets us some sizzling scenes!
This was a really excellent start to what could be an awesome series. We've got a pretty good HEA for Ella and Kees, so I'm eager to see where the story will go.
