Delicious Debuts #2

I'm slowly working my way through my electronic tbr pile and over the weekend read an absolute scorcher from my lovely friend, Mel Teshco, who's debut erotic novella, Stone Cold Lover, available from Ellora's Cave, was well worth waiting for!!


Heiress Loretta Shaw is notorious for her loose morals and sexual needs. Trouble is, it’s taken her one too many one-night stands to realize that no man can extinguish the sexual fire she feels toward her guardian, Cray Diamond.

A long-ago curse made Cray immortal—a gargoyle, a guardian, who is impelled to protect a human, chosen by the curse. He is imprisoned in stone during daylight hours but the dusk returns him to flesh and bone, to carry out his immortal duty.

That Cray can shift between human and living gargoyle at night, bothers Loretta not one bit. She’s seen him naked many times and her desire for him—in any shape or form—knows no bounds. She’s tired of his resistance. He’s her gargoyle and she wants him in her bed.

I'd not read a gargoyle story before so was fascinated by that concept. And wow is Cray a hot gargoyle!!! Cray, honourable guardian, tries so hard to resist Loretta but after saving her one too many times his superhuman control shatters. Oh wow. My computer screen sizzled as they finally came together (OK I apologise for that shocking pun but *phew*!!) the flight over Sydney totally took my breath away. I don't think I'll ever look at another gargoyle in quite the same way again!
