REVIEW
I just love Gargoyle shifter stories and this one is really good.
Alec doesn't feel at ease after leaving
But he will follow where his clan goes. However he heads out one evening to just destress and runs into more than he can handle.

Enter one who should be a enemy to him after all his clan faced at the hands of her kind but Alec and his beast think differently.

Alec encounters black magic on his return trip home and ends up getting tangled up with a sassy witch Veda when she saves him. On the run from the evil wizard Alec and Veda find a connection but is it safe for them to be together.

I am voluntarily leaving my honest review of this book. This is book 6 of the Highland Gargoyles series by the author.

Bewitched!

Alec never wanted to leave the Isle of Stone to the Highlands, but he had to follow his Clan as was his duty. His heart will always be there though, he remembers it in his daily flights over water. His clan and especially his father never forget the rift between gargoyles and witches, one of the reasons they decided to leave the Isle. Although Alec will never forget the murder of his mother when he was a wee lad by a witch, he also acknowledges that not all witches should be held accou

I love gargoyle stories and the author has created a world where they are protectors and have clan loyalty. Alec is restless since his family has left their home. Their new home, a crumbling castle, doesn't give him the same comfort. Yet, his family loyalty forces him to remain. During a long flight to pass the time, he finds himself drawn into a strange light and ends up cursed by a dark warlock. When the warlock's companion sees his unnecessary evil act she plans to try to undo the evil spell- ...more

The author continues to work with the theme of gargoyles finding love with other kinds of paranormals. Gargoyles are not supposed to be with witches but that doesn't stop Alec and Veda from growing closer as they work to keep safe from another.

I enjoyed the story and the characters. It is well written and has a good mix of action and romance. Alex and Veda have great chemistry and their romance works well. The story complements the author's earlier series titled Knights of Stone very well and I

A great addition to the Zodiac Shifters series and the Knights of Stone series. I love gargoyle stories. They are as hard headed as you would expect. But one little witch will change this gargoyle and show him that not all witches are bad. A little action and adventure with a few heated scenes.

I voluntarily read and reviewed a copy of the book.

The Calder Gargoyle Clan has relocated to the Highlands of Scotland, their ancestral home. They used to live on the Isle of Stone, located in the Atlantic Ocean off the coast of Scotland. Humans had discovered the Island and the Alpha decided to relocate the clan with the exception of five brothers.
Alec is maybe regretting the relocated. He misses the smell of the Ocean and the sounds of the waves crashing against the rocky cliffs. On his night off from patrol duties, he flies north over mountai

I have a feeling I missed some books before this one. He is a gargoyle shifter. He goes out for a night flight and sees this mysterious light and goes to it and is turned to stone. A witch saves him and Kai isn't liking it. They have to go on the run now. I was given a review copy by booksprout and voluntarily review it.

What a great read! This was my first read in this series and now I want to go start at the beginning. It has strong characters, adventure and danger, magic, and falling in love all rolled up together.

This story started a little slow then took off into a magical and well developed world. I loved the characters. Loved the relationship building. I could see the world in my head as this author developed it. I fell for this gargoyle right along with Veda. I do love a good gargoyle story and this was definitely good. I read it straight through and now intend to go read the others in the series. Great read.

In this book Alec the gargoyle meets a witch, a witch killed his mother and his family would say that he should have left her to die even though she helped him first when her friend the wizard decided that Alec was a spy. They get to know each other and find they have a lot that brings them close and their feelings closer. A romance with some violence. I was given a copy as a gift from author. I am providing an honest review without obligation.

Great read!

Received this book in exchange for a honest review.

What an awesome read. I had to go back and find the others in the Zodiac series. A magical world with characters written so real that they become real in your mind whilst reading. Just enough action and romance...

Emotionally thrilling, sexy, charming, gripping and entertaining romantic adventure for two highly magical beings. Enjoyed every heart pounding twist and turn.

A witch and a Gargoyle are thrown together to fight evil and are falling as they face a dangerous battle. Whats not to love. I highly enjoyed reading this exciting and romantic journey filled with undeniable passion and magic.

Finding Your Place


If you have ever felt out of place and wondered what the future holds for you, then this book is a good place to start.

Veda will take a chance on changing her life. The question is will she be successful?

Stone Cursed is the sixth book in the Highland Gargoyles series, although it can be read as a standalone being as it is part of the Zodiac Shifters set too. Some references are made to the other gargoyles - where they live, why they left, the war, etc, but nothing you need to read for this to make sense.

Alec is one of the shifters who left the Isle of Stone to move to the Highlands of Scotland. He misses the sea though, so takes every opportunity to fly near to it. On one such flight, he hears v

I love it when an author continues with the world they've created. This book explores a member of the clan that left the Isle of Stone and returned to the Highlands. The characters are thrust together when dark magic is welded against them. They both learn to deal with prejudices taught from without as they find their way towards each other.

She's Made A Mistake

This is a entertaining read about a witch who falls for gargoyle after he was turned to stone by a dark spell. Reversing the spell placed both of their lives in danger. Is she duplicating her earlier error? Enjoy I did.

He leaned toward her and took a lock of her hair, watching it as he ran it through his fingers. “Until I met you.”

“Alec moved his mouth over her neck and the top edge of her breasts. “You must really want me to heat you up.” A hint of humor sparkled through the deep velvet tone.
“To volcanic levels,” she replied.”
