Rose Johnson's adoptive mother was murdered, and Rose is next. She may be the last gargoyle in the world—the last being who stands between this world and the evils of Otherworld. In order to keep her existence a continued secret, Rose needs to find the stone that holds her adoptive mother's soul. Which means enlisting the help of her enemies the Sentinels...
Sentinel Cal Levesque never forgave himself for failing Rose's family years ago. Seeing Rose alive is shock enough, until the stunningly beautiful gargoyle attacks him upon sight. As they strike an uneasy peace—and unexpected and escalating attraction—Cal knows he'll have to tell Rose who really betrayed her family. And with Rose's life in greater danger than ever, Cal has a chance to make up for the past...as long he doesn't fall in love.
As they form an uneasy alliance there are many surprises waiting for Rose and not all are pleasant. Discovering what really happened to her family will see Rose having to accept a cruel betrayal by one she has always trusted; but with the demonic activity increasing Rose has a job to do and there isn't time for doubt. Seal the rift and save the world, simple right? Or maybe not!
Well, Locked in Stone was different. There is a palpable attraction between Cal and Rose but this was more than just a romance. A good beginning and some very intriguing characters are introduced. I loved the ghost angle and those scenes really made me chuckle. There's a glossary of terms that I felt unnecessary, but I'd love to discover more about this world Ms Michaels has created and if it includes the Sentinel Lucas, then I'm definitely reading the next book. This was enjoyable, sexy and fun! An ideal read for paranormal romance lover's like me.
