Author Mina Carter
Sometimes things that go bump in the night make the best bodyguards. When Iliona is attacked by a demon, help comes from an unexpected source… Cal, the hot gargoyle from her local coffee shop. Her stone hottie has some secrets of his own though, namely a ‘twin’ born of stone and just as hot as he is. With everything from a demon to redcaps trying to kill her, can Iliona track down a serial killer before she becomes his next victim? Born of stone to protect… They’ll stop at nothing to keep her safe. Freed from their curse Cal and Gran relish their new freedom. Working at Frankie’s Coffee Shop isn’t the most glamorous, but it beats sitting on the roof of a church. And for Cal, Frankie’s has another advantage…the curvy beauty who comes in for coffee. He feels a pull toward her he can’t explain, especially not to Gran, who hates anything human. When the chips are down, Gran comes through, but will the secret he’s kept close to his heart for centuries destroy them all?
Official published review:
What’s not to love about two tortured souls who just don’t quite fit in?
This book is such a wonderful read. The author gave us these two gargoyles who have gone through terrible things and yet they are such gentle characters. Then we have their mate who created a brand new agency to make up for things she was forced to participate in. The way they come together is just magical. The author gave us just the right amount of action to balance out the intensity of the emotions. I really enjoyed this book and can’t wait to read the next contribution from this author.

Mina was born and raised in the East Farthing of Middle Earth (otherwise known as the Midlands, England) and spend her childhood learning all the sorts of things generally required of a professional adventurer. Able to ride, box, shoot, make and read maps, make chainmail and use a broadsword (with varying degrees of efficiency) she was disgusted to find that adventuring is not considered a suitable occupation these days. So, instead of slaying dragons and hunting vampires and the like, Mina spends her days writing about hot shifters, government conspiracies and vampire lords with more than their fair share of RAWR. Turns out wanna-be adventurers have quite the turn of imagination after all... (But she keeps that sword sharp, just in case the writing career is just a dream and she really *is* an adventurer.) The boring part: A full time author, photographer and cover artist, Mina can usually be found hunched over a keyboard or graphics tablet, frantically trying to get the images and words in her head out and onto the screen before they drive her mad. She's addicted to coffee and would like to be addicted to chocolate, but unfortunately chocolate dislikes her.
