Stone Cold Heart by Jami Gold

 

This is a great contemporary romance with a dash of supernatural. I have never read a love story involving gargoyles so I was intrigued. I read this in a day, I just couldn’t put it down because I wanted to see what happens next. I have not read the rest of the books in this series, but I read a blog post by the author who said this could work as a stand-alone.  I did not feel like I missed out on anything by not reading the other books in the series. I felt instantly connected to the protagonist, Raquel as she struggled with re-entry after fighting in Afghanistan. I liked that Garret and Raquel’s story mirrored each other and they were able to help each other cope and fell in love.

 

 

Abandoned to his fate, a shapeshifting gargoyle is trapped until she sets him free…
A gargoyle betrayed by his soldiers…
After centuries of stone-cold death, Garrett discovers his legion has deserted him. Without their help, he’ll succumb to eternal sleep once more unless he can trick the woman who woke him into trusting him with her soul.
A combat veteran scarred inside and out…
Her last night in Afghanistan, Raquel Guerrero’s team fell victim to a suicide bomber, killing everyone but her. Now, despite her determination to never again let anyone close, her sense of duty compels her to help an endangered warrior survive.
Trust isn’t in their vocabularies…
A tentative truce frees them to investigate his regiment’s abandonment—and unleashes passionate temptations. But when the truth is uncovered, Garrett and Raquel’s fragile bond—and the healing power of love—might be the only thing that keeps them alive.

  1. I actively avoid romances, but the fact that this is a standalone one has me intrigued since I try to actually keep my options open. It just seems though that in the romance category too many of them fall within the confines of “series” and can’t be read comfortably as a standalone. Glad you addressed that here. Makes it seem more accessible to me.
