Blurb: When lightning strikes the road ahead of his limousine, CEO Nikos Papadakos has no idea that the hands of fate are about to change his life forever. Finding a naked man in the middle of the road is odd enough, but the horns and wings take things to a whole new level of crazy. Before he can discover if he’s lost his mind or not, he’s claimed by a creature that insists they are long lost soul mates. Yannis is a guardian gargoyle. It is his duty and honor to guard the Temple of Zeus. It is his heartache that he can’t seem to find his Beloved. When he finds Nikos, Yannis gives in to his need to claim the man, not understanding until its too late that the man he claims doesn’t believe in the hands of fate–or soul mates. When the sisters of fate discover that sorcery has been used to keep two soul mates apart, they band together with other Gods of Olympus to bring the two men together, but those that fight to keep them apart won’t stop until one of them is dead.

Review: It’s lighter fare for sure, and I like the alternative shifter/paranormal person being a gargoyle. Though it was hard at first finding a gargoyle to be sexy. Adventurous, mysterious, sexy, and fun.
Sometimes the Greek names got a little difficult to ply, and I did not get a great feel for the location/environment/atmosphere of the story. There were slow moments and a few editing errors, but this is typical Stormy Glenn fare.
If you’re just looking for a fun and sexy escape for a few hours you’ll enjoy this book, but if you’re looking for deep, angst, or true mystery, this isn’t it.
