He has days to live.
Dragon shifter Reive is dying. After a fight with a gargoyle to save his clan, his poisoned body is painfully turning to stone. His only hope: an ancient book that promises a cure.
And the librarian who can help him find it.
She’s a monster.
All her life Jess has feared and hated her gargoyle shifter form. She would give anything to be fully human.
Now she might have a way.
If she can fight her attraction for a dying man long enough to help him find the book that will save or doom them both.
But they’re not the only ones looking for it …
Helen’s thoughts: 4/5
An enjoyable dragon shifter paranormal romance that reaches a satisfying Happy Ever After (HEA).
Reive is battling a Gargoyle poison which is turning him and his dragon to stone. Rumours of a mythical book offers the possibility of a cure and the slimmest of chances for him survive. Only he is running out of time.
Arriving at the small town library with a specialist collection about gargoyles is his last hope. When Reive and the Librarian, Jess, are attacked, he realises someone else is after the knowledge about gargoyles as well.
Jess, has her own secrets, and her own reasons for helping Reive try and find the other half of the book.
I didn’t realise this story was the HEA for Reive who is a character in another series, but it doesn’t detract from the story. This is a complete story and I am glad I met him in this book.
Lovely characters you can truly root for. A nice change to meet protective gargoyle shifters. Love the HEA even if it is a little predictable. An easy enjoyable read.
