"an extraordinary tale"

Sofia Evans seems like your regular everyday woman. She runs her own business called Fortune's Cup coffeehouse. But in reality, the normalcy stops there, at least it will when a stranger enters her life.

From generation to generation, a family lore and a parchment have been passed down and Sofia believes this tale of evil darkness to be no more than a myth. In her own right, she has a special ability that sets her apart from the rest, something that will end up making a myth of old come to life, invade her world, and cause her to rethink what she has been taught. It is her responsibility to her family that tugs at her, while her heart speaks differently.

Julen, an ancient warrior, has gone through centuries of a horrifying and painful nightly ritual that turns a man into something he cannot fathom. This curse has been unjustly put upon him. Yet, there is someone who can break the darkness that surrounds him nightly. Sofia Evans will be that woman, and it will be Julen who will have to convince her to help him. Will he be able too? What exactly is this curse that holds Julen nightly in its dark embrace?

Cast in Stone is book one of the Quinguard Immortals by author Kerry A. Jones. Using a rarely penned premise, Ms. Jones spins the tale of Julen and Sofia, two people from different times, with different personalities and backgrounds. The chemistry between Sofia and Julen is written in a soft language, creating a magical relationship between them. But all this will pale when Sofia must choose between her feelings for Julen and her family beliefs.

Cast in Stone is an extraordinary tale, with memorable characters, a fresh premise and solid writing. Ms. Jones crafted a winner.

The lore passed down on the medieval parchment was real. His love could bring about her destruction...

He had waited seven hundred years for her.

For what seemed an eternity, Julen had endured a nightly punishment that never should have been his. Descended from a line of ancient warriors, he vowed not to become the creature his persecutors claimed he was the creature they did their best to make him into. Now that he has found the healer who can end his nightly torment, the stirring she creates in his Agathyrsi blood threatens to bring more danger than redemption.

She was sworn to destroy him.

Sofia Evans, owner of Fortune's Cup coffeehouse, had been raised on family lore and responsibility passed down through generations on a rare parchment. She never believed the darkness and pain in its tales to be more than myth, never questioned the reasons for the gifts that set her apart from the rest. Until one winter morning changes everything. Now the breathtaking man who haunts her waking hours is the very being whose curse she must put an end to one way or another.
