I like Ms Richards paranormal stories, they are a good reliable read, and she has some very unique shifters and in this story a gargoyle. It's a typical mate/human/lust/bond/danger/HEA/ the next one please/ kind of story.
Mal ( I can't remember his longer name) found his mate when he was in Stone Ridge helping one of his clutch lay an egg. ( Yes, male gargoyles can have with their mates, but birth control is as easy as eating 2 spoon full of cinnamon a day, that part I'm jea

I actually enjoyed this better than I thought. I read the Wolves of Stoneridge series and liked the addition of the gargoyles and was happy to see them get their own series. This book may have had more plot than the wolves. I think it was actually longer. At the end, I didn't have the 'Is that really the end?' feeling. It had the early mating but it had a little bit of action. Overall, it was a good spin-off.
I honestly didn't know what to expect when I started this one. It's probably not one I would have chosen for myself, so I'm so glad it got picked for me. What a sweet story. I was totally charmed by Bobby and his gargoyle lover/mate Maelgwn. I'm definitely going to be looking for more by this author.

Cool that we got another gargoyle story.. BUT
I didn't like that Bobby was constantly getting pushed around and hit by his (soon to be ex) boyfriend's friends.. really? and Seth didn't notice any of this and didn't stick up for Bobby? Then, later when Seth comes to warn Bobby that his friends might try something and gets mixed up in a paranormal fight, we are supposed to believe he's really not a bad guy? Hard time swallowing that someone so... obtuse to his friend's treatment of his boyfriend is

I enjoyed this story, don't get me wrong.
I think romance stories with Gargoyles characters are wonderful, and I'm looking forward to keep reading this series.
However...I don't understand why authors keep writing books about abused character that they are wimps.
Instead of showing the readers that kind of behaviour is not acceptable, they portrait the main character like a damsel in distress from the 18th century who needs to be safe by the hero.
Is bad enough that you are abused, but being abused
This was a well written paranormal story with great characters and world building. Hated to see Bobby getting pushed around without Seth doing anything about it. Looks like Seth will be continuing in the series, so I hope he can change his outlook.

I was surprised to find this spin-off of the Wolves of Stone Ridge Gustav's Gargoyle Adventure. This book deals with the other gargoyle we meet in Gus's story, Maelgwn. I thoroughly enjoyed this one and am looking forward to the next. I did have a a problem with it though.


-Easy acceptance of all things paranormal.
Bobby was way too accepting for someone who believed nothing in the paranormal or interested in it. He was shocked and then suddenly was ready to be whisked away to another city w

Two stars because it is so freaking funny how bad this was. Not just that it hits every cliché in these sub genres (shifters, fate-destined mates, insta-love and -lust, etc.), but that the writing itself made me laugh my butt off and was so unoriginal. Plus it needs editing.

Also, this story felt like it opened into the middle of an already ongoing story--which technically it did--so maybe it shouldn't be labeled as the start of a new series, or at least have more background information, includi

The first half was rather dulled with almost non-stop sex scenes and the usual attempted at they must have sex to further to plot.

I liked the second half better since things happens and we got some action that wasn't in the bedroom.
GARGOYLES! I love this twist and I'm happy Bobby got a mate and isn't being hurt any more. I have been waiting and waiting and waiting to see Tible and Gus again and I can't wait 'til we get a book that has their big event!

I would have appreciated a warning about the male pregnancy, ruins a good story every time. I really liked the beginning, what a shame.

Paranormals mates

A sweet and thrilling introduction to this world of paranormals!

Bobby is a human stuck in a bad relationship. Mal is a gargoyle who knows Bobby is his mate and is about to change his life. When Mal woos Bobby it will include introducing him to the whole new world of paranormals.

Bobby is very sweet and has a good backbone, but is stuck in bad relationship. He has been looking to get out but needs a nudge and the almost mugging he has finally pushes him. Bobby has a difficult time
Two alright stories incomplete

This book felt less coherent than most of the authors works. Most have straightforward, if simple, plots and this did, as well. However the shift from Stone Ridge to the Clutches estate felt like two separate stories merged, and not well.
Having said that, it is nice for new group of characters to be introduced.
Finally, I think it's time it was said. The author needs to can it on the sexism. I hope i never have to read another comment where the protagonist insists h

Oh! Gargoyles! Yes! But so cheesy and cliche. I really didn’t know what to make of Bobby and his relationship with Seth. His severe injuries at the hands of Seth’s friends and then Seth’s explanation at the end made no sense. I liked Maelgwn and could easily imagine him as this hunky beast...yum, but his relationship with Bobby seemed forced and disingenuous. There were quite a few grammatical errors and incorrect word use (e.g. here vice hear). And the whole angst scene...Bobby just finished an ...more

Fantastic book with tie in to Wolves of Stone Ridge. Like that the story kept developing. A great series look forward to next book

3.5 stars

The bad guy wore a cloak?

This weird guy who rescued him and wouldn't show his face would freak me out even more than the muggers I think.

Why would he take his own laptop to a cyber cafe?

Dire peril, violence, needing and then getting rescued and he's battered. I love it. There's something wrong with me.

When someone faints, you need to wake them up. They're not simply sleeping. There could be something seriously wrong, damage, they could have injured themselves in the fall, not to menti

A Gargoyle as a hero? Really? Was the first thing I thought when I read the blurb of this book. Of course, I was immediately intrigued by the thought of a stone statue that rests outside of buildings being a romantic hero, so I had to read and review, Trill to Me Sweetly by Charlie Richards.

I’ve read several books by Ms. Richards and I’ve enjoyed them all. I like the way she gets to the heart and soul of her characters and enjoy the often creati

I was so excited when I saw that this was to be Mal's book. After being introduced to Tible the Gargoyle in Gus' book, I was so curious to find out what came of the gargoyle who came to help them. And then there is the semi-regular character, Bobbie who was mentioned in a few books in conjunction with Lyle.

I should stop by explaining that, though this is a new series, in a way that's a misnomer because its really a spin off from the Wolves of Stoney Ridge series and seems to be meant for the par

I've been waiting for Bobby to get a happily ever after since he was introduced so I was super happy to see him as one of the MC's for this story. This was a really good short and I liked the way it fit into the Wolves of Stone Ridge series but had enough of it's own plot and world building to stand alone.

This book DID hit a nerve for me though so incoming rant : (view spoiler)

Beth doesn't write  enough reviews

This is about the 8th time I've read this so I should review it. As a spin-off of Wolves if Stone Ridge we get to follow Maelgwn as he woos his mate Bobby Truman.

Maelgwn is a gargoyle who came to Stone Ridge to help Tible & Gus of Declan's pack. While there he catches the scent of his mate. Maelgwn is 7 foot tall, dark blue with long black hair, black wings, claws and large canines. He has to get Bobby, who is human and doesn't know about paranormals, to trust him without seeing him before h

This is another series from author Charlie Richards, currently more of a spin off from the Wolves of Stoneridge/Kontra's Menagerie series. You don't need to be up on the Wolves/Menagerie books to enjoy this series.

I enjoy the take on gargoyles (admittedly I haven't read a lot of gargoyle books so I'm not completely familiar with their mythology).

Maelgwn (sometimes I wish authors would list pronunciation hints with their foreign names) is the leader of the gargoyle clutch. Visiting a friend he st

Yay! Trilling ! This is a spin-off from the Wolves of Stone Ridge series and it features gargoyles. We met Gus and Tible and through their story we met Maelgwn who is the leader of his own “clutch” of gargoyles. Bobby, we also met, once dated Lyle.

What I love so much about this series is all the cool things that gargoyles can do and all the neat stuff associated with being a gargoyle – including male pregnancy! Trilling is like a cats purr and it soothes one’s mate. Awwww! How sweet is that? We

I just love gargoyle stories and I usually have a difficult time finding them, so when I found this one I was totally ecstatic! Maelgwn (gargoyle and leader of his clutch) was awesome and I loved the understanding of his human mate, Bobby. It did bother me that Bobby was being abused by his boyfriend's (Seth) friends without Seth stopping them or defending Bobby so I was happy when Bobby finally ended the relationship, although he should have done that long before he did.

Not brilliant, but not bad either. Planted firmly in the mediocre range.

Everything happened a bit too fast.

I wanted to give this book a higher rating but I didn't think "it was amazing". With a bit more polishing up I would give it a five. At some parts of the book I didn't like the tone of the story or what I felt was the author's voice.

I love the characters but my impression of them from the summary was different from what was portrayed. Maelgwn is a beautiful name and it bothered me when I saw it spelled Mealgwn . The overuse of the word mate also irked me especially combined with the word swee
Books like these are the reason why I don't read any f/m romances anymore..

Bobby is sweet but nothing more than a damsel in distress who has to be rescued - aaaaallllllllllll the time... Really, the only difference between Bobby and a woman is his cock... I mean, can he even take a shit without someone holding his hand?

Males giving birth to eggs? Really? Doooo? -.-

This book is a waste of money and time...

At least Bobby isn't a f**ing virgin...

I liked this a lot more than I thought I would. Bobby found out about Mal sooner than I was expecting but that left the majority of the book for events after the mating instead of the story being about bonding with barely anything else after. I also really liked how the confrontation at the end was different than what I thought it would be. I do figure this is a tie in series though as events are referenced in regards to some of Bobby and Mal's friends so I'm going to have to figure out what boo ...more

This book felt longer than they usually do. Possibly to do with the plot. It felt like something actually changed for the protagonists, plus actual time was allowed to pass. Good thing. There was a lot I did not feel overly happy about, not the least of which being Bobby’s inconsistent characterization. I only actually liked him a little at the very end.

The Seth setup for the next book is interesting enough. Naturally, nothing of this is new or fresh. Still, this book had a more solid feel to it

I'm so tired of paranormal books that are insta-love, all-sex, little-to-no story to make me care. There's so much potential in a concept like mates... and it's always wasted on the aforementioned.

Other things that bothered me: oh, no, sex on the first date would make me slut /sigh. He doesn't want to be seen as a pussy -_- And 'The African American', that was charming.

I'm sad, because I went through the blurbs for all of them and they all sounded like so much fun. But if they're all gonna be li
