Blurb: 1418, Wales: Hunter Conroy, the youngest in a family of powerful demon slayers, is captured by the evil warlock Osian. Young Hunter is given a choice: join forces with his enemy and kill his own family, or be cursed to live through the ages as a stone gargoyle. Once a century, Hunter is released from his prison, and tempted with the chance to build a life for himself. At the end of a decade of freedom, if Hunter does not choose to become one of Osian’s minions, he is again remanded to the cold, lonely rock.
Fast forward six hundred years, and Hunter finds himself in Salem, Massachusetts. He has forged a quiet life, knowing that at the end of this latest cycle, Osian will once again return, and Hunter will decline his offer. He is content to live out the last few months of this round alone, until he meets Walker Harmon.
ER Doctor Walker Harmon had expected to be married with children by now, but so far has been unable to find the man of his dreams. Hunter Conroy sparks his interest until he sees the handsome tow truck driver throw a man across the room without even touching him. When Hunter reveals the source of his powers, telling Walker that his days in Salem are numbered, it’s a story beyond belief. Realizing he’s in love with this cursed man, Walker is willing to risk everything to fight for Hunter.
With time running out, Hunter amasses a dream team of witches, psychics, and a mysterious wizard to help him break the warlock’s curse. Will their combined powers be enough to free Hunter, or will the gargoyle reclaim him for another century?
Review: I loved this story of Hunter and Walker. Hunter is forced to become a gargoyle after declining to help an evil warlock Osian. Once a century Hunter is free for ten years. Now six hundred years later Hunter finds himself in Salem. He makes quite a few friends with a variety of paranormals. Upon meeting Walker Hunter finds himself hoping.
This was an amazing story. I loved all the characters, the history and the plans. It’s my favorite in the series so far. The crew from Cold Case Psychic was an added bonus. My heart went out to Hunter for all the things he missed out on while trapped.
Blurb: Boston Police Captain, Kevin Fitzgibbon thought he’d found the missing piece of his heart when psychic Madam Aurora prophesied the love of his life was philanthropist, Jace Lincoln. After spending months as on-again, off-again boyfriends, the pair are off again, perhaps for good, leaving Kevin distraught and grumpy.
Jace Lincoln is still trying to put his life back together after Fitz dumped him on Valentine’s Day. While getting back into the swing of things with a new man, a drunk Fitzgibbon barges in on their date like Godzilla destroying Tokyo. Listening to Fitz carry on about how much he misses what they had together makes Jace wonder if they still have enough of that old magic left to try one last time.
Through a series of dates ranging from ridiculous to right on the money, Fitz and Jace reconnect and find that the things keeping them apart might not be so insurmountable after all. Deciding to give their relationship another try, they start planning a bright future together.
That future is stopped dead in its tracks when tragedy strikes at a party celebrating the tenth anniversary of Jace’s homeless shelter. Will Kevin and Jace survive to begin a new life together or have they lost their last chance at happiness for good this time?.
Review: On and off again boyfriends Jace and Kevin decide to try their relationship one last time. There are laughs, sweet moments and tender scenes. The cast makes appearances throughout this story as it plays out.
I was happy for Jace and Kevin.
Things were not smooth sailing but they seemed to work through it together with the help of friends.
Blurb: Spellbound bartender and Salem State biology major, Luca Pennington, has recently developed a rather disturbing allergy as a result of volunteering for a medical trial in order to supplement his tuition. It seems spending even a second or two in the sunlight causes his skin to blister and burn as if he were being exposed to an open flame. Then there’s this pesky need for AB negative that has him breaking into the school’s medical department late at night to satisfy his odd craving.
Salem Chief of Police, Cisco Jackson, is dealing with budget cuts the only way he knows how, by working double shifts. Getting a call out to the local university on one of these overnight shifts, he finds a sexy young man drinking blood from a medical lab fridge. Not wanting Luca to continue his thieving ways, he makes the young vampire an offer he can’t refuse: Eat me!
When the rookie vampire refuses to feed from the veteran cop in a Meals-On-Wheels-with-benefits exchange, things really start to heat up with Cisco threatening to arrest Luca if he catches him stealing blood again. Luca’s response to the sexy, older cop, “Catch me if you can!”
Are Cisco and Luca fated mates? Or is the blood song that calls to them both a Siren’s Song of destruction?
Review: Interesting story about Cisco and Luca. Especially how Luca became something more than he bargained for. I loved how these men both traversed through the journey in figuring out what happened to Luca and who was responsible.
It’s a great story with twists and turns and the returning characters as well as new ones. Intriguing and well written this book takes the reader on a journey of sorts into a world full of the unknown to some.
Awesome book that captivates you as you delve further in the story. Great read and addition to the series.
