From New York Times bestselling author Christine Warren comes the sixth book in her red-hot romance series in which even the most beastly gargoyle is able to win the heart of a beautiful human woman.

Ivy Beckett has a special gift. She can hear voices, feel events, and receive messages from great distances. Which is also a curse. The moment her family is killed by the servants of the Darkness, she knows it. And the only way to fight these evil forces is to align her powers with a Guardian. A legendary warrior of stone who strikes fear in her heart―and fire in her soul…

Baen is a fierce and powerful gargoyle who has sworn to protect all humans from the Darkness. But when this mighty winged warrior swoops down to rescue Ivy from the jaws of death, he is drawn into a battle that is more dangerous―and more intimate―than he ever bargained for. The beautiful, gifted Ivy touches something deep within him, an all-consuming passion that puts both their lives at risk. Can he conquer the armies of evil itself . . . without losing the woman he loves?


Ivy has a strange magical gift,  she hears things.  Unfortunately by the time she hears them it's too late to stop them happening.  So as far as she is concerned it's a useless gift.  Never more so than when she hears her uncle and cousin being killed in England when she is in the USA.  That doesn't stop her from going and trying to complete their work. 
Baen is a gargoyle guardian who has been woken from hundreds of years sleep to find a battle going on.  That's exactly what he's built for.  When he finds out the sorry state of affairs the Guild and the Wardens have to deal with, he knows it's time to summon his brothers. 
This is the climax to a series.  Unfortunately I haven't read the other books, but I still loved this one.  The author's mad sense of humour makes what could be ordinary paranormal into such a fun read.  There is danger, magic, sex and laughs galore.  Our heroine thought she knew what she was getting into.  She didn't know the half of it.  Our hero is a typical Alpha male who needs to learn about modern females. 
I loved every page. 



Born and raised in coastal New England, Christine Warren lived in the South and the Mid-Atlantic before hopping to the other side of the country to take up the life of a transplant in the Pacific Northwest. She completely bypassed those states in the middle due to her landlocking phobia. Hmm, need to research a scientific term for that...

When not scrambling frantically to complete her latest writing project, Christine spends most of her time as a crazy animal lady, hanging out with her dog Levi (he’s the one with the hair) and pretending to train him to have some manners. She also hangs out with her horse, Cal—a thoroughbred with a craving for strawberry licorice twists—her goddog, Merlin; and her best friend, fellow author Hannah Murray. In addition to playing with her pets, Christine’s hobbies include identifying dog breeds from photos of their underbellies, appreciating fine and not-so-fine wines, shopping for the perfect pair of Christian Louboutin shoes, and most of all reading things someone else had to agonize over.
