The Book Barista Reviews Stone Cold Lover by Christine Warren


ISHO Add to Goodreads




ISHO SummaryA prominent art restorer, Felicity is more than game to help a friend track down an obscure statue in Montreal. But when “Fil” finds it, she’s taken by surprise at how drawn she is to this statue. Attracted to it in a way a girl shouldn’t lust for a stone gargoyle, she revisits it at night, longing to feel its embrace. Little does Fil know, her desire for this stone cold beast is about to heat up a notch.

Locked in stone for centuries, Spar has slept, waiting for when a human would need him. When he is awoken, Spar is taken aback to find that a human female needs his help. A very sexy woman who’s about to be the victim of a cultist attack. Saving and leaving her should be no problem. But as more questions arise, Spar knows that he cannot rest until Fil is safe in his arms.

isho-my-opinion2I received an ARC from NetGalley in exchange for my honest opinion.  After having read the first book in the series, Heart of Stone, I was excited to get this.

Let me just start by saying that I love gargoyles! I used to love the cartoon Gargoyles. Yes, it’s true…I was a grown woman who watched the show religiously. Certainly you don’t have a problem with this. Do you?

Having said that, I was super excited when I heard about this series.  I immediately got the first book and devoured it. After that, I was ready for Fil and Spar.

Fil is an art restorer who unknowingly awakens the Guardian Spar.  She’s a strong, stubborn woman thrown into what I’d call a nasty situation with the Eternal Order of Darkness. She’s drawn to Spar but is reluctant to let it flourish into something more.

Spar on the other hand is quite certain about what he’s feeling for Felicity and I think at times he’s a bit confounded by her actions and comments.  Luckily for her, he’s somewhat patient and is not easily dissuaded.

I really enjoyed this and am looking forward to the next book in the series. (March seems like such a long time away.) I give this four strong and bold espressos.

ISHO Author BioBorn and raised in coastal New England, Christine Warren lived in the South and the Mid-Atlantic before hopping to the other side of the country to take up the life of a transplant in the Pacific Northwest. She completely bypassed those states in the middle due to her landlocking phobia. Hmm, need to research a scientific term for that…

When not scrambling frantically to complete her latest writing project, Christine spends most of her time as a crazy animal lady, hanging out with her dog Levi (he’s the one with the hair) and pretending to train him to have some manners. She also hangs out with her horse, Cal—a thoroughbred with a craving for strawberry licorice twists—her goddog, Merlin; and her best friend, fellow author Hannah Murray. In addition to playing with her pets, Christine’s hobbies include identifying dog breeds from photos of their underbellies, appreciating fine and not-so-fine wines, shopping for the perfect pair of Christian Louboutin shoes, and most of all reading things someone else had to agonize over.
