Exciting, enthralling and exceedingly entertaining! I can't wait to see which brother will be seduced next!

Cupping her chin, he said, "Sexiest female I've ever seen."
One side of her mouth turned up with a smile while her eyes twinkled. "Even gray and leathery?"
"Ever so bonny."

KNIGHTS OF STONE: BRYCE by Lisa Carlisle is the third riveting, action-packed installment in the author's unique Highland Gargoyles series in which each book has spotlighted one of the Knights of Stone. I think a little

I'm not a big reader of fantasy/paranormal romances but I did read this short book as well as the two preceding it in the Knights of Stone series. In comparison to the first two books this one is the equal of the second and better than the first. Like the first two the story line is okay, not very complex and written at I'd guess an 8th grade level reading level. That is except for the sexy parts which are definitely meant for adult audiences. This one has some action in it as the gargoyles batt ...more

On a return trip from the Highlands, Bryce feels like he is being watched. With strange rumours of people being attacked, he is on his guard. What he finds though, was not what he expected.

Bryce watched his brothers match with a tree witch and a wolf. He had no intention of making any match let alone their former enemies. Then he felt something following his brothers as they flew around the island. Not a wolf. Not a witch. What? A female gargoyle hiding? From what? When he finally got her story it was a horrific tale of monsters who had destroyed her entire clan and whole family.
Who or what were they?

This story was endearing. An orphan gargoyle, Mairi, had just experienced a devastating loss when vampires decimated her clan. In the midst of her sorrow she spots two figures flying and recognizing them as gargoyles, follows them to their home. At first suspicious, Bryce believes her story and he and his brothers enlist Duncan's clan in the Highlands to decimate these demons. While Bryce is a force to be reckoned with in battle, losing his heart to Mairi takes no ti

She Is Alone

This is an exciting, sweet and hot read about the brothers coming back to the Isle of Stone with a female gargoyle trailing them. Bryce keeps getting a feeling that he is being watched. When his supposition is proven correct, now he has to figure out what to do with her. Enjoy I did.

I know whenever I say Lisa Carlisle books i know I am in for a delightful treat. She spins a tale that sweeps you off to the highlands. Characters defined she makes you think that you are meeting new friends. Must read.

The first I’ve read from this author or series, I’m more than a little obsessed with Gargoyles now. Of course, I always was intrigued by them, and have read several wonderful stories that feature gargoyles, but this series centered around a Highland Clan full of Gargoyle shifters was just too intriguing to pass up.

Self-contained, the story is of Mairi, a gargoyle shifter on the run from her home in the highlands after a group of demon-like creatures killed her family. She’s understandably shake

A modern paranormal book with a Rocker twist, Knights of Stone: Bryce was an enjoyable read. When I read the blurb I never expected this book to be a modern tale I thought it would be more of a historical setting. However Lisa Carlisle has weaved a fantastic story merging the paranormal and modern in a unique way, in fact if it wasn't for the rock twist this particular book could have easily been set in the past.

I am a long time reader of both romance and paranormal romance novels and a lot of my paranormal romance involves shapeshifter so far one sort or another. I have to say that this is my first encounter with gargoyles as shapeshifters. I was intrigued by this new type of shapeshifter and was excited to explore a different take on the genre. Unfortunately, there wasn't a lot that was original here. Because the book was set in the Highlands, it read very much like a typical Scottish romance and ther ...more

Mairi was a gargoyle and she was hiding from demons who had killed her clan. From her hiding place she spotted two figures flying in the distance, after watching the way they flew she figured out they were also gargoyles so she decided to follow them. She kept her distance and followed them to the island where their clan lived. Bryce had the feeling someone was watching them but he couldn't see anyone. Gargoyles have the ability to hide themselves from everyone except another supernatural. Bryce ...more

I was given this story in exchange for an honest review. The follow-up to Knights of Stone: Mason and Lachlan (separate stories) introduces us to Bryce, beta of this fledgling clan of gargoyles who live on an island. While returning back to the isle to continue negotiations with the tree witches and the wolf shifters who also inhabit the island, he starts getting a feeling that they are being followed. Eventually, he finds the person that has been following them—a female gargoyle whose clan was ...more

I was a bit leery of this one at first. Something about it being gargoyles... and a TV show I used to watch as a kid, I was having a hard time picturing gargoyles as sexy. To some degree, I'm still not sure how I feel about gargoyle shifters, but, hey, to each their own!

I did actually enjoy the story. It was short and there was a lot that happened. I think it was actually too short... it felt rushed and like there was a lot of the story that was left out. I certainly felt cheated during the se

At least these brother's are hot rockin gargoyles. Bryce has taken over the position of beta for his clan. Since the rest of the clan moved off the island him and his brothers stayed and are working on peace talks with the wolf's and tree witches. Him and his brother Lachlan , who is now alpha, had just flown back to the island when he feels something. Not sure what it is he questions his brother but he doesn't feel anything. Bryce knows something is amiss and searches for what ever it is. He fi ...more

These gargoyles are a lot more fun than the ones you typically read about. They are rock stars and love that lifestyle. Well at least they do until they meet their mates.

Bryce has seen two of his brothers find mates in unlikely choices and is surprised when he begins to have feelings for a gargoyle named Mairi. Mairi is on the run from the evil creatures that killed her clan and looking for revenge when they first meet. He is not sure to trust her but feelings develop quickly between the two.

I was given a copy by the author in exchange for an honest review.

Such an interesting book, I was so totally intrigued from the first page. I loved the descriptions given of the way the gargoyles shifted. It's a great story of romance. This is a series about a band of brothers and now it's time for Bryce to find his one. He will fight it at first, but will soon realize that Mairi is the one. I loved the story and can't wait for the next one.

Awesome Series

Read the whole book in one day, just couldn't put it down. Loved that you are finding mates for the five brothers and they are awesome. The oldest brother's mate is a wolf, Mason's mate is a tree witch, and Bryce' mate is a gargoyle. You have found interesting mates for them; I can't wait for the next book to see which brother finds his mate? Highly recommended and waiting anxiously for the next one.

A nice addition to the series,only complaint is the ending too soon. Can be read as a standalone but recommend you read the series to get the full experience.

How she survive is a testament to her inner depth of character. When he first saw her it caused a ripple that struck deep into his being. These guys are Hot. Looking forward to the next one who fines his mate.
