Blurb: Into the Paranormal World: Sometimes getting a crash course in things unknown doesn’t always end in disaster.
Zander Wheeler knows they’re out there: shape shifters, vampires, and other things.
Having lost his wife over a year ago, Zander finds himself seduced by a married man. Ashamed, Zander asks his friend Logan McByrne to help him sever ties. Logan agrees, and in doing so, reveals a whole new world to him. Zander learns that his lover is a vampire, which is why he’d become so enamored with him. Then, Logan hooks up with a wolf shifter, and to top it off, a massive winged creature—the gargoyle Geoffrey, according to Logan—is claiming he and Zander are mates.
When Zander demands they all leave him alone, save for Logan, they agree. Still, some sixth sense tells Zander he hasn’t seen the last of Geoffrey. He’s right. When one of his billy goats becomes aggressive, Geoffrey swoops in and saves him. With Geoffrey keeping to the shadows, they begin a dialogue. The more they talk, the more Zander realizes they may not be all that different after all.
Except, he’s already been played by one paranormal. Can he open his heart to another?
Review: This is the tenth book in this series and they should be read in order. It gives you a new romancing couple with each story and an insight into their amazing world. A world that fascinates me and draws me in. A world that I would dream to be in.
I have been a fan of Charlie Richards for quite a long time. In fact, the first story was with the Wolves of Stone Ridge. You meet the gargoyles through the other series. There’s always an intriguing mix of stories set in varying locations and with an assortment of all sorts of character types. Different types of the paranormal world are characters in these amazing stories. Characters that I have to tell you will draw you in and have you falling in love.
Zander had met the paranormal’s in such a way that left him feeling raw and scared. He had been not on lied to by a vampire, but the vampire had used his powers to get what he wanted. Now he was afraid to be near any paranormal, even his own mate. Now here he was being protected by a gargoyle and that man just happens to be his mate. Now all he has to do is to figure out how to overcome his past.
Geoffrey has found his mate, and now all he wants to do is to comfort him and show him that now all of them is bad. When the vampire that made him afraid shows up asking for help, it was all he could do not to kill him. With his mates urging he finds them all in a mess.
However, for me it just seemed to go to fast. It was missing that edge that would make it perfect. However, I still loved this book and cannot wait to get my hands on the next one.
This was a fun read, full of quirky attitudes and steamy sex. Although it has a great plot, the story seems to be more about the characters and the love they have for one another. Charlie has always managed to give her readers that tasty delight. The readers get to know the characters pretty well in the earlier stories so that by the time they get to this story they have already fallen in love with Geoffrey and Zander.
It caught my attention from the moment I started reading and kept it all the way to the end. Now normally when it is a paranormal story they usually mate and have sex right away. In this story, you have to wait just a bit to get the full ride.
I would recommend reading this story especially if you love sexy men, gargoyles, excitement, danger, feisty attitudes, and tempting turn ons.
