A shifter made of stone. And wings.
A human bent on free love. And drunk.
A joke could be made with those two lines.
But the town of Woodland Creek, it's no laughing matter. Hostile and magical residents guard their secrets. It's too easy to be found out.
When Isaac Stone first meets Kennedy Kirk, he's tempted to shove her off the clock tower. After all, she is gripping his private parts to lean over and see his town. One little push is all it would take...
Isaac never anticipated he'd be the one to fall.
I received a copy of this story for an honest review.
Welcome to Woodland Creek, a picture perfect town... full of shifters, witches, wizards and weird goings on. It's also the setting for the steamy and exciting new novella series from author Scarlett Dawn. Gargoyle (Woodland Creek #1) knocked my socks off and left me eager for more.
What I Loved: Paranormal romance is my jam and Gargoyle hit all the right notes for me - smoking hot alpha who is a smidge of jerk but still swoon worthy, plucky heroine who is fallible but refreshingly redeemable, crackling chemistry between the leads and mysterious goings on that kept me guessing until the very end.
What I Didn't Love: Because this is a novella, there is a lot of story compacted in short space. Leads Kennedy and Issac are solid but there is a slew of secondary characters that left me guessing how they may play out in future novellas instead of how they contributed directly to Gargoyle.
"His mouth was... delectable. A sinful indulgence I lost myself in as I pressed my lips to the plushest, softest mouth ever imaginable sinking into them."
"No one's past redemption. You only need to have faith."
"With faith comes trust. With trust comes safety. And the woman who gives you all three will hold your heart."
New York Times bestselling author and award-winner, Scarlett Dawn is the author of the Forever Evermore new adult fantasy series, the Mark new adult science fiction saga, and the Lion Security contemporary series.
