Christine Warren – Hard as a Rock

The third book in New York Times best-selling author Christine Warren’s mesmerizing Gargoyles series, where even the most dangerous beast can be tamed by the woman he holds above all else…

Wynn Powe comes from a long line of powerful women, but when an elusive enemy draws too close for comfort, Wynn pursues a creature who can put an end to the fight.

But when the powerful Guardian she calls forth makes her heart beast faster and her breath quicken, she must handle something she didn’t count on at all – an earth-shattering attraction to the monster himself.

Enter Knox. He may be a newly summoned gargoyle, but he possesses all the skills and memories of his race…and that includes protecting the beautiful woman he’s bound to. But he never could have imagined the fierce attraction that has taken hold of him, body and soul. Is his desire for Wynn worth the risk of being destroyed?

I loved this story of forbidden love between an omega wolf and an alpha vampire who discover they are fated mates (referred to as Imprinting here). The struggle to deny fate and their feelings sets a rich tapestry of angst, uncertainty, and secrets. Family and pack/coven relations set up barriers, but in the end love will not be denied…or will it? I loved Claude and Sven, and all the secondary characters, too, even Reyland. I hope we get to see him find his mate in a future book. I would love to see more of these characters.

The narration is okay, but I was expecting a firmer, deeper voice for Claude. This is just a personal preference. There is nothing wrong with Mr. Jenness’ narration, I just didn’t like it for this story. I recommend that you listen to the sample and decide for yourself.

I received a complimentary copy of this audiobook at my request from the author, narrator, or publisher and am voluntarily leaving this honest review.
