"I really enjoyed this book, it was an amazing story about righting wrongs and forgiveness as well as a fast paced thriller with action and mystery." -- Emi from Bitten by Paranormal Romance
First in a breathtaking trilogy, the fierce and seductive Gregore Trenowyth-one of three men cursed by Gypsy magic-is driven by desire for the one woman who could be his salvation, but who he dare not let himself love...
Once falsely accused of his lover's murder, Gregore knows when he is going to die, and he has spent decades searching for a way to break the curse that hardens his body to stone. When a painful twist of fate lands the counter-curse in his hands then snatches it away just days before he turns to stone forever, Gregore's desperation reaches new found heights. He'll do anything to live-even if it means kidnapping the one woman who could steal his heart.
Although she comes from a long lineage of powerful women, Detective Tara O'Reilly is wonderfully content with her normal life. The remnants of her Gypsy heritage and magic are firmly locked away where they can't hurt anyone. However, when a creature straight out of legend kidnaps her and asks for her help, she'll have to choose between walking away from a man who stirs her soul and embracing a magic that could kill everyone she loves.
An exciting and dark new paranormal romance novel, Set in Stone explores the themes of redemption and righting past wrongs, all while showing readers that true love can conquer all. Blending romance with a bit of fantasy, this is a perfect story for anyone who wants a taste of magic and the unknown in their romance novels.

This book was fantastic! I enjoyed the mix of romance and mysticism. I was on the edge of my seat waiting to see what would happen the whole time. It had a marvelous ending and has me waiting for the next installment.
I thoroughly enjoyed this story. Gregore and Tara were great characters that complimented each other so well. I loved how they came together and helped each other overcome obstacles. The plot itself was fast paced and original and kept me wondering what would happen next. I would definitely recommend this book.
A wonderful story! It was exciting right from the start and never stopped! The use of the gypsy magic was very interesting. Tara was a great, strong character, and Gregore was a great match for her. I really liked the idea of him being a gargoyle during the day. It was a new kind of paranormal for me, and I loved it! The other characters were great as well! Jeffrey and Thomas seem like a lot of fun! It was very easy to envision the group of three friends joking around with each other. I also liked how each one had a different curse, and each curse was something I haven't read in a ton of other books. Maddy was so funny, and very easy to envision too. Overall, Set In Stone was awesome! It was different, and I can't wait to read more of these characters!
**I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review** Set in Stone is a great start to this series. Gypsy magic and curses have always intrigued me so I was definitely anxious to read about it, and it did not disappoint in the least. Gregore, and his two best friends, were wrongfully cursed for the death of his beloved Zola by her crazy grandmother. After a century and a half of searching for any connection to the gypsy and a way to break his curse, it is mercilessly torn from him. And the only way he can get it back is with the help of the beautiful Detective O'Reily, which coincidentally is also the target of the crazy wizard who stole the spell book in the first place. Gregore carries the guilt of not only of his curse, but his two best friends, who just happened to be at the wrong place at the wrong time. Tara is kind of in a similar of state of mind, she has carried around her own guilt about an incident in her past as well. Since fate has brought them together, they both work on their issues, even though trust doesn't come easily to either of them. As time runs out, they find that trust and fall for one another, but do they make it in time? I really enjoyed this book, it was an amazing story about righting wrongs and forgiveness as well as a fast paced thriller with action and mystery. The only thing that threw me off a bit was that we didn't find out about the crazy wizard's reason for his vendetta until the end, so it kind of had me wondering the whole time. But I guess that is the whole point to the crazy character, keep me guessing the whole time, lol. Great read and I am definitely looking forward to Thomas and Jeffery.
