Blurb: Into the Paranormal World: One man’s lie is another man’s truth.
Walter wonders if he made a mistake. One minute, he’s helping his boss recapture stolen animals. The next, he realizes everything is not as it seems. A split second decision completely changes his life, and he takes a bullet meant for someone, something, else.
Awake and lucid after months in a coma, Walter discovers the true depth of his boss’s treachery. Now, he knows myths and legends are real, and his boss had even been holding some of those creatures captive. The animals hadn’t been stolen, they’d actually been freed…by gargoyles!
One such beast, a black-winged, golden gargoyle named Treatise, fires his blood like no one ever has. Except, Walter is a traitor. Can anyone truly trust him, even the gargoyle who claims him as his mate?
Review: (This is best read as part of the series, although you can certainly figure things out and read it as a stand-alone.)
Walter was one of the animal keepers who helped keep the (unknown to him) paranormals alive while in Bud’s captivity. He’s shot while saving Maelgwyn, the leader of the Gargoyles, and is rushed to the estate to heal. While there, Treatise, a member of the clutch, realizes Walter is his mate.
Together they navigate the discovery of paranormals, first time gay sex, and a rescue from a kidnapping – all after Walter wakes up from a months long coma!
I love this series. The Gargoyle story line is very hot – tail sex and mpreg and all kinds of fun things! Walter is a sweet guy and there isn’t too much drama – just a gentle unfolding of the story line.
I was a little disappointed that we didn’t get to go through Treatise’s first molt or learn what he looked like as a human and Walter isn’t pregnant – yet – but the rest of the story was very satisfying in the way a comfy blanket is on a cold day.
Overall Impression: I really liked it
