by Jacquelyn FrankWhen Katrina Haynes discovers a large man lying wounded in the snow, she fears he is at death’s door. But as Kat tends to his injuries, she quickly realizes that they’re the least of her worries. With an irresistible Scottish brogue and a strange ability to harden his chiseled body like a statue, the stranger awakens a desire she is unable to resist—and a fascination about the intriguing world he exists in.
As a proud Gargoyle, Ahnvil must safeguard the Nightwalker to whom he’s sworn fealty. But as this bewitching woman nurses him back to health, arousing an almost uncontrollable hunger within him, he is possessed with the fierce impulse to protect her as well. And he will have to shield her—for by coming to his rescue, Kat has placed herself in the middle of a supernatural war . . . and exposed herself to dark, powerful magic. As human and Gargoyle forge an unbreakable bond, Kat will discover that despite his intimidating strength and size, one thing Ahnvil does not possess is a heart of stone.
I received a free copy of this book for review via Netgalley.
I've read several of Jacquelyn Frank's books, most of them from the Nightwalker series, and I've loved them. I don't know what I was expecting this time around. A much as I as looking forward to this book, I ended up being disappointed in the end. I think most of the issue I had with the book was because of the characters. They came off as flat and uninteresting, and often whiney. Ahnvil was nothing but a horny brute, and Kat was just...there. I didn't get much from the characters at all. Everything else- the dialogue, the plot- was just lacking.
I'm hoping the next book in the series will be a lot better.
