Sabrina Lark is a muse who has the ability to inspire any man…to do absolutely anything. Unfortunately for Sabrina, the latest human to fall under her spell has turned out to have one very dark side. Now he’s obsessed with her, and she’s realized—too late—that she just inspired a serial killer. She truly has the worst luck in the world.
Desperate, Sabrina makes a deal with the devil in order to get some serious paranormal protection. Her protection comes in the oh-so-sexy form of Adam Cross, a man who is able to resist her magic…because Adam really is made of stone.
He’s a real beast on the outside…
Cursed centuries before, Adam is a gargoyle. Fierce, strong, and absolutely unstoppable, he is the guard who is placed at Sabrina’s side. He’s supposed to protect her from every danger…he is not supposed to find himself falling under the seductive Sabrina’s spell. But even a man with a heart of stone can find himself pushed too far…
Sabrina thinks she may have found the perfect lover, but Adam’s past is about to come back and bite them both…and he may not be the man she can trust, after all. If she can’t find a way to touch the man inside the beast, if she can’t make his stone heart burn for her, then they’ll be lost.
Essentially, we are catching up with two characters who we have briefly met before yet, uncannily they hadn't met each other and no spoilers, but it's a doozy of a secret.
Sabrina is a Muse, no, that's not quite right because she just happens to be the last Muse on Earth. You would imagine that's a good thing but not really because her innate ability can inspire humans to greatness or can enable them to embrace power and madness. She needs help and it comes in the shape of the cursed hunk of rock that is gargoyle, Adam! Adam will protect Sabrina from a murderer but can he protect her from learning his own secrets?
From the outset, the passion burning between this couple is palpable but there's no awful instant love, although they do ahem 'connect' pretty quickly. They truly have a very tricky problem or two to solve with Leo and Luke aiding, although at times it does seem more like hindering!
That's the beauty of this series as the author keeps us guessing. I adore bad boy Luke as he is such a schemer but I am left anxiously waiting to see just what becomes of his twin Leo.
