Overview

Can a determined librarian convince a mythological beast of the night that fairytales do come true?

A good book, a puzzle to solve, a riddle to master--these all get Elena Xavier’s blood pumping. But is her drive for a solution enough to break a powerful wizard’s curse and free the beast of her dreams?

Over two hundred years ago a man was cursed by a spell of humility and his mortal life ended. Now he soars across the heavens under cover of darkness, praying to the gods for an end to his tortured existence.

Elena has one chance. Her problem-solving abilities are put to the ultimate test when she finds herself in a race against time. She has until the stroke of midnight on All Hallow’s Eve to solve a riddle. Then, only consummation with her one true love will undo the ancient incantation cast centuries before. One obstacle stands in her way--a very stubborn gargoyle reluctant to follow his heart.

    I thought this book was actually very sweet.  The plot was prett

    I thought this book was actually very sweet.  The plot was pretty predictable, but the characters are kind of adorable (especially for being gargoyles) and you just don’t really care if it’s predictable anymore.  For being a fairly short book, Jennifer Cole does a good job of bringing out the relationship between the hero and heroine, while also bringing out some personality in the secondary characters.  One really cool thing I found is the tone in the beginning, which is set in 1792, is very different than the rest of the story, which is set in present day.  My last note is that the ending is just too cute…that’s all I have to say about that! *giggles*

    My complaints are few, but my biggest one is pretty typical…why do women always have to get emotional and overreact?  And why are men always so damned stubborn?   Sigh, whatever, they still get over themselves when the time comes *grins*.  I have only one real complaint, and that is that there’s really not much on the villain, and when he shows up for the big reveal, he’s contradictory to the way I expected given previous descriptions, as well as to his own agenda.  But who cares about the villain anyway when you’ve got a fearless woman in the face of a sexy gargoyle?

    Overall, I’d give the story a 4 out of 5 and the same for heat level.  There are some pretty steamy scenes, and the most pivotal one towards the end is the best in the book!
