BLURB: There’s a new species of shapeshifter in town…
Raphael Stone is the King of the Gargoyle shapeshifters. His family, The Stone Society, has ruled the Americas for over seven hundred years. As an architect, he has spent the last thirty years helping to rebuild New Atlanta since the near Apocalypse. As King of the Gargouille, he has spent those same thirty years protecting his city from the dregs of society.
Kaya Kane is the New Atlanta Chief of Police. At thirty-six, not only is she the youngest, but also the first female Chief the city has ever had. She has dedicated her life to keeping her city safe. When a multiple homicide brings her face to face with the elusive Rafael Stone, her life will never be the same.
Rafael’s kind has never mated with a human but just speaking to Chief Kane on the telephone nearly brings him to his knees. Kaya has given up on ever having a relationship other than her career. When the two meet, sparks fly. Literally. Can Rafael give in to the fact that Kay is human? Can she overlook the evidence pointing to Rafael as the killer?

Shonna's review: I enjoy a good shifter story, and when it points in the direction of Gargoyles being in the spotlight, you have a huge plus. This delightful story by Faith Gibson introduces us to the world of the “Stone Society”, a clan of Gargoyle shifters that help in protecting humans without them knowing of their existence. Their King, Rafael Stone, leads more than a clan, he makes it a family and it is plain the sincerity and care he feels for his species. On a personal level, he long accepted a life of solitude since female Gargoyle numbers were few and all living were mated. That is until the police chief of New Atlanta needed answers about a warehouse that Rafe owned becoming a murder scene. Instantly he knew something was distinctly different about this beautiful woman. From here on out,.. POW!! The attraction explodes and the passion is unstoppable. Now not only are answers needed to solve the murders and clear his name, Rafe must uncover the possibilities of a human woman actually being his mate. While the book was very busy with a lot of characters and sub stories yet to be told, I look forward to reading the next installment to find out more details about this very intriguing story.
