Synopsis

As the new alpha of his gargoyle clan, Lachlan takes on a leadership role at the historic peace talks between the wolf shifters and tree witches. Cooperation is crucial to their survival. The magical veil over the Isle of Stone is weakening. But unity is hard to achieve when tensions are running high. So is Lachlan’s concentration when a sexy wolf shifter rushes to the talks. Her wild beauty is mesmerizing.

Raina has her hands full with pack problems, from pack mates succumbing to blood lust to animosity toward her species. The source of her problems is clear-the gargoyles. If they hadn’t lured the humans to the island with their unconventional rock concerts, she wouldn’t have to deal with the fallout. She wants nothing to do with them, especially their alpha. His not-so-surreptitious glances are hard to miss. Nope. Not the kind of attention she needs. She’s heard rumors of the rebellious, attention-seeking rockers–and of their endless string of females.

But when humans come to investigate the wolf attacks, Lachlan and Raina must work together to coerce them off the island. And time spent together sparks a forbidden attraction. If unexpected love were their only problem, they’d be able to deal with it. It’s not. Time is running out, for them and their island.

***Gladys – #NerdGirlOfficial’s  Review***
Hmmmmmm… I dont know where to begin. I really wanted to like this book. Shifters, Gargoyles and tree witches (Oh My) but it felt like it was missing something. A backdrop? The history of the island? It wasn’t until I went to grab the synopsis that I learned it was book 2. The premise was strange. Why would an secret island with a weakened veil attract more attention by having a rock concert? Especially if the tree witches’ ward their territory so strongly that it causes trespassers to be knocked unconscious. I know, I know… It’s fiction and anything can happen in fiction. But why bring trouble onto your secret island? Babes?? Gargoyles should know better. Especially the Alpha. Hmmmmm… The writing is fine and the characters were strong but something just didn’t click with me. After reading so many paranormal romance this one just didn’t work for me. My advice is to read them in order. Maybe the something that was missing was in that book. 3 stars!
