You say you like your gargoyles hot, Bunkie? Then New York Times bestselling author Christine Warren has the book for you! Rocked by Love is her fourth title in a series featuring seven immortal gargoyle Guardians—and the women who reawaken them—as they strive to protect the world from demons of the dark.
When computer genius Kylie Kramer’s best friend, Bran, disappears for a year, then mysteriously dies, she goes on the search for information. There is something wrong with the answers she’s been given, and she can’t move on until she discovers for herself what truly happened to Bran.
Hacking into his computer and online accounts, she finds files solidifying her feeling that a heart attack didn’t kill Bran. But she doesn’t understand the references to Guardians, Wardens, nocturni and the Seven. She uncovers a source on the dark net who claims he does, and she promptly arranges to meet him. However, he fails to show at the restaurant, and then, just to make her evening truly special, on her way home, she is attacked by two ski-masked muggers. She fears she has met her end, when suddenly, something huge and dark swoops in to dispatch her attackers and snatch her away, flying her up to a bell tower. Finding herself face-to-face with an immense, gray-skinned, bat-winged gargoyle, she’s pretty sure she has fallen down the rabbit hole.
Gargoyle Dag’s job is to destroy the demons threatening Kylie’s world before returning to his slumber. He doesn’t know exactly how long it’s been since he last awakened, but the city they call Boston was village-sized the last time he saw it. And this petite woman who called him from his slumber is apparently his Warden. Assuming a human body, he fills Kylie in on the dark world that killed her friend. And even as they combat demons, their instant connection and passion grows.
If you’re looking for an emotionally conflicted hero and heroine, this might not be your book. It lacks the usual push-me, pull-me conflict between the sexes we’re accustomed to reading in romance. But if you like reading paranormal with steam to spare, delivered in a hip, fresh voice, then Rocked By Love will be right up your (dangerous and spooky) alley.
