Tempted by the Gargoyle by Lisa Carlisle

Meet your perfect match this Saturday night--or your perfect match for the night.

The eclipse of the red Supermoon sends crowds into Boston for an evening hyped up for a night of passion, one not to be missed. Boston police officer Larissa Riley wants nothing to do with the media-driven event, but her friend convinces her they need a night out after all they've gone through. They visit a new gothic-themed club where Larissa is disturbed by the attractive stranger eying her.

Roman, a gargoyle shifter and commander of the Stone Sentries, patrols from the rooftop of a club on the night of the eclipse. The Supermoon bodes danger and he puts all his sentries on watch. When a blast of dark magic soars past him, he searches for its origin and fixes on a brunette. Something about her is different, demanding all senses be on high alert. Is she dangerous? Or is she in danger?

Deciding a night with a hot stranger would be good for her, Larissa invites Roman back to her hotel, unaware he is surveilling her. The night takes a dark turn as secrets are uncovered and danger moves in. Her beloved city is under attack. Larissa must decide who to trust before all is lost, including the fate of her closest friend.

Great read

Tempted By The Gargoyle by Lisa Carlisle is a wonderful story about a young police officer whose friend survived the Boston Marathon Bombings with a lasting limp. Officer Larissa Riley was left with scars of her own, they just weren't as visible. The night of the Supermoon Eclipse, her friend Janie talks her into going to the club, and Larissa's life changes forever. This is a wonderful 5-star read that pulled me in immediately and was almost impossible to put down. ***Review has been done in conjunction with Nerd Girl Official.

Let me start by admitting I may have a slight bias; Paranormal Romance IS my favorite genre. Having said that, I absolutely loved this book! The story was typical of this genre, but I loved the uniqueness Carlisle gave it. The characters are well developed, each with personality that allows every reader to relate to at least one character. Overall, I found Tempted by the Gargoyle to be well written, entertaining and fun; very easily, a 4 Boundless Star book. I look forward to ready more from Carlisle....Beth

Another new Gargoyle series, I love Ms Carlisle’s Gargoyles, she makes an ugly beast into the hottest hunk! I love Gargoyles! Roman is Commander of the Boston Stone Sentries, gargoyles tasked with protecting humans from evil be it human, or supernatural. He takes his position very seriously which is why when he senses something strange on the night of the Red Moon, he feels it his duty to investigate her and what he finds is more and better than he anticipated. Now he has to find a way to convince this lovely that there is more out there, that she is more than meets the eye. Larissa has always felt things before they happened and although she has always managed to save her BFF from harm, she still feels so inadecuate because she can’t explain what it is. It has messed up her head, she can’t sleep and it has ruined her relationship with her lover. It’s to a point where she doesn’t trust to ever have a normal life, so she throws herself into her work as police officer. When her BFF convinces her to go out for a girls night out on the Red Moon, she will be introduced into a world she doesn’t believe exists and much less lives in her. Lots of action, hope and passion. I can’t wait to read more about the Boston Stone Sentries especially about Roman and Larissa. Another great series by Ms Carlisle, love it!

This is a fantastic story that will grip you from the beginning until the end and not let go. It has action, drama, revenge, romance and heartache all rolled into the pages of this book. I am not going to describe anything because it would contain spoilers and I do not like spoilers so let me just say that this book is another gargoyle winner for the author. I am voluntarily leaving my honest review of this book.

Gargoyle, Demons and witches Larissa Riley (Cop) has been isolating herself from the night life ever since the Boston Marathon Bombing where her best friend got hurt. Said Best friend, Janie convinces her to go out on the night of the Eclipse of Red Super moon. She gets her to go by telling her she has been practicing dancing and you can’t see her limp when she dances. Roman – Gargoyle Commander Get a weird vibe from Larissa and her friend so he decides to follow them. But there is more to just a vibe but an attraction he can’t explain. Then there is the Dome that was set up just for this night. People can go into it and put on these packs and get to fly. Little do they know who or what erected that dome and the real reason it’s there. The night just keeps getting more interesting. Awesome story with lots of action and adventure. Well written and very entertaining to read.
