"Tortured Souls"

There is more to the shallow heiress, Loretta Shaw, who seeks to forget her past. She takes many lovers but her heart yearns for a man she can never have.

Cray Diamond is cursed. By day, he's a monstrous Gargoyle effigy. When the sun sets, he's flesh and is Loretta's bodyguard, who will do anything to keep her safe. Cray is attracted to Loretta and wants her. Honor is all he has left and he will leave her untouched by his hands. There can be no future for them. He's bound to protect and when his services are no longer needed, his curse will force him to find another. Even if he wanted to stay with her, he wouldn't be able to do so.

Loretta has other plans. She wants Cray and is determined to make him see they belong together. Only an ex-lover of hers is just as determined to stop her. His demented actions may cost both lovers their lives.

This is a fast paced story with a tantalizing romance, suspense and non-stop action. You will fall in love with honor bound Cray, who hates the way his body transforms into the hideous Gargoyle, and you'll feel for Loretta and understand how a life changing event left her scared on the inside.

This is a fabulous book of tortured souls who need each other to heal. Highly Recommended. Don't miss the second book of this series: Ice Cold Lover.

Heiress Loretta Shaw is notorious for her loose morals and sexual needs. Trouble is, it’s taken her one too many one-night stands to realize that no man can extinguish the sexual fire she feels toward her guardian, Cray Diamond.

A long-ago curse made Cray immortal—a gargoyle, a guardian, who is impelled to protect a human chosen by the curse. He is imprisoned in stone during daylight hours but dusk returns him to flesh and bone, to carry out his immortal duty.

That Cray can shift between human and living gargoyle at night bothers Loretta not one bit. She’s seen him naked many times and her desire for him—in any shape or form—knows no bounds. She’s tired of his resistance. He’s her gargoyle and she wants him in her bed.
