For one month of the year, around the winter solstice, gargoyles can assume human shape, though it entails a steep price. Averic has become entranced by a woman he sees pass by his cathedral each day and decides to take human form during the Christmas season to get to know her better. Tricia McKinnon is just about to give up on her long-held fantasy of finding a dominant man who is also strong, honest, and caring. When a fall at a street corner literally dumps her into the arms of Eric Stone, blazing sexual attraction erupts. She cleans his scrapes, feeds him, and lets him kiss her until her senses reel. When she learns what he wants from her, Tricia begins to believe she’s been granted a Christmas miracle. But that miracle is more complicated than she knows and claiming it will challenge her in astonishing ways. $0.99 on Kindle.
