Tracy tends bar at Vamps to pay her way through school. She has had her share of problems- an abusive ex, family problems, etc- and she finds comfort in sharing her turmoil with the status of the gargoyle that hangs out at the bar. She doesn’t know why, maybe she’s losing it, but there’s no harm done. One night, as she’s closing down the bar for the night, aforementioned ex shows up, drunk and looking to either hook up or fight. Just as Tracy is figuring out the best way to defend herself, her statue and confidante comes to life before her eyes and takes care of the problem for her. He believes that they are fated to be together, and he has twenty-four hours to prove it to her or he will turn to stone again. Will he be able to convince her, or will he remain under his curse?

Thanks to this lovely author, I have really come to love gargoyle shifters, and Danton is no exception. He’s hot, strong, and sweet- what more could you ask for? This story is written along the lines of the other Underground Encounters stories, which is excellent! The characters were well developed, as always. The world building just continued to grow from the previous books. The story was well rounded enough, even for a short novella, that it would be no problem to grab it and enjoy without having read the previous books (although you should, if you like PNR!). If you’re looking for a quick, fun, PNR, pick this one up!
