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?
Christine Warren’s Gargoyle (aka: Beauty and the Beast) series is one series that you don’t want to miss. The series has gargoyle guardians and witchy warden’s saving mankind from evil’s clutches as it tries to encompass the world in darkness. First I guess, I should say that it is my understanding that Hard Breaker is the last book in this series and while I haven’t read all of them yet, (I really need to get caught up on my TBR pile!), the author makes it easy to read each and every book as standalones and still easily be able to grasp all concepts of the overall series plot.
That being said, let me get to what you really want to know; is this book good? Definitely, the author created a spectacular ending with a sensational battle and a very rocky relationship. Ivy is a reluctant heroine that gets the surprise of her life and has a bone to pick with fate which keeps the relationship on rocky ground despite the hot and heavy attraction that burns between them. The reader can certainly empathize with the situation that the characters find themselves in and Baen is one hunky winged guardian that easily captures the heart.
The danger that plagues the couple is full of suspense, thrills, betrayals and death defying action which keeps readers completely engrossed in the tale from start to finish and plenty of supporting characters spice things up to really keep readers on their toes.
What’s better than one sexy guardian? Why a six sexy guardians and their wardens, which the story provides as previous characters join our hero and heroine for one outstanding knock down drag out finale. I love Christine Warren’s books and while I am sad to say goodbye to this series (of course I will be re-reading again and again) I can’t wait to see what she has in store for us readers next.
This series is based on an eternal conflict between good and evil. Our heroes are seven immortal Guardians, who view each other as brothers and work together to protect the world from the seven demons of the dark. Our heroines are the women who reawaken them...
