This short book starts by introducing you to a young woman named Jasmine who's fascinated by the grotesque gargoyles of Invercreutch Castle in Scotland. When day changes over to night, she learns that there’s more to their history than meets the eye…
Jasmine has always been drawn to medieval castles. She’s excited to come upon Scotland’s fabled Invercreutch Castle, hidden deep in Argyll Forest, during a secret hike thru the woods. It's the place she's been searching for... a castle that's pretty much a secret as there are no photos of this castle and barely any written history. There are three stone gargoyles atop the castle in the shapes of a dog, a snake, and an eagle, as well as an empty base where one's missing. All were made of different materials, yet had a strange lifelike appearance. When darkness falls, the statues shift from their gargoyle forms into their human shapes. Jasmine is terrified at first, but quickly finds that passionate pleasure awaits her at Invercreutch & that she has nothing to fear.
Through the long night that follows, Jasmine learns that her arrival is no accident & her past is very much interwoven with these gargoyles. Persuaded by the seductive embraces of the gargoyles in human form, Jasmine begins to sense her true place in the world. For the first time she doesn't feel alone and she remembers that she is an integral part of the magical history of Invercreutch. At the end of the story Jasmine has a choice to make—does her heart belong in the bright daylight world of today or in the Argyll Forest?
This short story had me captivated from the beginning. If you're uncomfortable with sex scenes this book isn't for you, it's super erotic, but if you enjoy hot steamy romance...give this book a try. I loved the mystical characters & the old Scottish castle setting. And the story-line kept me reading til the very end. I had to know the whole story of the gargoyles & where Jasmine fit in & what was pulling her to this mysterious place.
I rate this book 4 stars
