Stone Cold Lover is book two in the Gargoyles series by Christine Warren. If you saw my review, you might remember that I fell in love with book one of this series, Heart of Stone. Because of Ms. Warren, I now have some very vivid “dreams” about gargoyles wink, wink. So I was so excited for book two to come out and it was worth the wait. I loved it.

Fil “Felicity” was sent to investigate the existence of a statue which they hoped might be one of the guardians. The first time she saw the gargoyle

3.5 - "You are mine, Felicity." ... "My human, my woman." Stars.

Stone Cold Lover is the second book in Christine Warrens Gargoyles Series. I loved book one, and although this one was really enjoyable too, it didn’t 100% hit the mark with me this time.

I loved Spar Mr. Tall, Gray, and Invincible, like his brother Kees (Book 1, Heart of Stone) although forged from stone he had a heart of gold. He wasn’t afraid to fight for Fil, and he definitely wasn’t afraid to show his feelings for her.

4.5 stars - Art Restorer Felicity (Fil) Shaltis never expected that a friend's request that Fil locate a gargoyle statue would result in Fil being so obsessed with the stone creature that she finds herself breaking in during the wee hours of the night to get a better look at it. Or that Fil would end up attacked by a crazy guy in a robe, or saved by the very object of her obsession come to life as a seven foot fiery eyed winged warrior. When Spar awakes he is confused, but saving the little huma ...more

***Received the ebook from St. Martin’s Press for an honest review

The cover is nice, but not as hot as the last one :) Something about a shirtless chest that just heats a cover right up :)

Gargoyles will always have a fondness in my heart because of my dad and his nicknames and for watching Gargoyles (Disney version) with him growing up :)

This is the 2nd book in the series and packed with action though Felicity (Fil) drove me nuts with her ho

I really enjoyed the first book in the Gargoyles series, Heart of Stone. Immediately after finishing that one, I started the second book in the series, Stone Cold Lover by Christine Warren. That was probably not the best decision, not taking a breather between books. While I found Heart of Stone fun, Stone Cold Lover just left me mostly annoyed.

Stone Cold Lover is about Ella’s best friend, Felicity who is an art restorer. In the previous book, Ella called Felicity to keep a lookout for Gargoyle

Hm, where to start with this one, welllll "Stone Cold Lover" was much better than "Heart Of Stone". First, the romance in this one was first and foremost, which balanced out the story far better than the previous one did. Secondly, the story went somewhere, we went from point A to point B fairly quickly with more mystery and action in the midst. Both elements were very well done.

Felicity also known as Fil, is an artist that gets tangled up in this whole mess by accident, it all starts off as ju

While I was quite entertained with Fil's snarky self in the beginning but as the story went, I found myself getting detached, further and further. Fil's hot and cold attitude annoyed me and I wanted to snap at her. I guess it became MEH fast. I just couldn't fully immersed with this world nor the couple; and I started skimming to get to the end.

Even in the beginning Spar is intrigued by Fil, "Fil - oh, how Spar hated that named - reached up and ran a palm over her hair, then tugged at the long tail in which it was bound." He's also a caregiver, "Spar ignored her and spread a ridiculous amount of shampoo over the top of her head before beginning to work up a lather. "You are injured and in shock. I am tending to you. Now be quiet and let me tend." He's the type of man to make his intentions clear in the beginning, "be certain you do not ...more

Right off I want to say that I skipped some of the book so this isn't a completely accurate review.. I did like this one more than the first book. I didn't completely hate Fil and Spar was a better male character than the first one too. I still just couldn't fully get into the story. I am not sure what it is about it. I did LOVE Wynn though. I am actually excited to read her book.
The Book Junkie Reads . . .
Much better than book one and hilarious from the start. . . .

I found that I liked Fil and Spar much more. I laughed more. I was captivated more. I was just drawn in more by their story. The demon mark. The various attacks on Fil. Her determination to defend. Her determination to be alone, even for a moment. Her determination to love Spar and let him go. She was a hardheaded female. But I liked her for her strength and determination.

Felicity is asked to check out a gargoyle statue by a friend. She finds herself ridiculous drawn to the statue and even dares to break into the museum where it is being displayed in order to look at it with her second sight, certain that there must be some odd about this specific statue. What she doesn't realise is that this decision will bring her to the attention of the noctouris, a group of cultist determined to bring on the end of the world.

Stone Cold Lover by Christine Warren is the 2nd book in her Gargoyles series. I did not read the first book in the series, and this was not a problem, as this read so well as a standalone. We get to meet the leading characters from the first book, which was cool, and also making me want to read this first book, especially after discovering how much I enjoyed Christine Warren’s writing. Stone Cold Lover is a paranormal suspense, but such a fun and humorous read, as well as very exciting, and very ...more

I absolutely couldn't WAIT to read this book (yet, as usual, I dilly-dallied on writing the review). This is the second book in Christine Warren's gargoyle series and it was even better than the first.

Fil's fascination with the gargoyle statue she found at her old friend Ella's request (in the first book) seems bizarre, even for her as an art restorer...and that's before the statue comes to life, introducing her to a whole new world of really wierd things. Add onto that, moments after the statu

This is the second book in Christine Warren’s fantastically brilliant Gargoyle series. Each book can be read as a standalone. I found this book quite wonderful, filled with a gorgeous gargoyle warrior, a beautiful feisty woman and evil bad guys. What’s not to love? This is a book and series to keep, I for one will read it again and again. I loved it.

Stone Cold Lover brings us to Guardian (they don't like being called gargoyles) number two. He has been located in the city where the heroine, Ella, from book one's friend lives. Ella asks Fil to check on the statue that could possibly be another guardian and in the process brings Fil into the world of the Warden's and the Guardians. My opinion is that this second book brings us further along in this new book world and some of the details are fleshed out and become more solid.

I like the premise of the series, good vs. evil and all that jazz. The twist with Gargoyles gives a fun mix of fantasy to the storyline. I love the Gargoyles/Guardians and their off-beat humor and desire to protect. These guys are hard not to like! However, I'm struggling with the heroines! They're too snarky for me ( I can't believe I'm saying this) and their mouthiness gets.. well..exhausting. Otherwise, I'm enjoying the turn of events and look forward to seeing what happens in the next instal ...more
oh for once, a fresh review. i just finished this book. and it was everything i hoped it would be.and more. I am a confessed #stonelover, so this book is just my type. It was a lot of fun reading this book. It sort of went like a hurricane, spinning slowly, out of control. With Spar as the center, Fil had no choice. And trust, she fought it kicking and screaming. This was well worth the wait. #lovedit
Enjoyed this one almost as much as the first one of the series! Fil is a strong independent woman who doesn't need a man to lean on, but doesn't mind leaning just a bit on her Guardian, Spar. Hubba hubba. I'm really enjoying this series and the world of Light and Dark and their roles in the fight. Would recommend series for anyone who enjoys paranormal romance.
Lots of fun reading about sexy gargoyles... The newest paranormal hero? Great series, and a smart author to bring back the H/h from her 1st book. Anxious to read about the witch-about-to-be-Warden, Wynn, whose book has gotta be next up.

After over a year, I decided to jump back into the world of Gargoyles.

This is the 2nd installment to the Gargoyles series which takes place right after the first. A fast moving stories filled with dark evil, minions, demons, etc. The heroine, Felicity (Fil) was first introduced in the first book. An art restoration expert living in Montreal, Canada and sorority sister of Ella (1st book). In this story, similar to the first, another Guardian (Gargoyle) has been awakened without the a

I wasn't a big fan of Spar's alpha male "cannot let her have any agency must protect" schtick, but the world building is fun enough. I will probably check out the others in the series to see if they're better about that.
Wow, this book was honestly a waste of time. It was a good read and all but NOTHING was resolved regarding the underlying story line. Read it if you love Christine Warren's characters, which I do, but don't expect anything other than a good story.
Jennifer, Just beyond normal ♑
Great book, she seems to be building up the dangers and such in each book. I am glad they finally got the two guardians together there at the end. I didn't quite like the ending, but it didn't take away from the story too much. Looking forward to the next book.
Yeah not bad... Might have helped if I'd started with the first book in the series.

I can't say that I felt the slow burn of romance, more a caveman claim.
The story was ok. Not sure, i'll read the next one...

The rating may say a 3, but it's more a 2.5 rounded up :)

“Wherever his gaze touched her, she felt as if flames licked at her skin, and the thought of what it might do to her to feel his tongue follow suit had her eyes drifting shut on a moan.
Spar chuckled softly and leaned closer until his breath teased the rim of her ear. "I would pay more than a penny for those thoughts, little human, were I not filled with such vivid imaginings of my own.”
