Fireman Mason James thought finding out he is a Romanus—a rare class of gargoyle—would be the surprise of a lifetime, but he’s proven wrong when he discovers he is the son of a comte and goji nobility. But his newly discovered family doesn’t think his gargoyle lover, Luc, is good enough for a goji of Mason’s stature—how could a warrior ever be? But despite the Moreaus’ uncertainty and elitism, they are Mason’s only chance to unravel the mystery behind his mother’s death, find a solution for the class divide that might separate him from Luc, and discover what it truly means to be a Romanus.

This is not a standalone, and cannot be read without reading Romanus first.

This story picks up about one year after Romanus left off. And I’m very glad that Calmes decided to give us a sequel because things with Mace and Luc felt a bit incomplete. A tentative HFN.

But when Mace decides he’s in, he’s IN. Balls to the wall IN. Don’t nobody mess with HIS man. I loved the French setting, but the Daddy issues confused me. I feel like Calmes couldn’t decide if the compte was going to be evil or just an asshole. (There is a distinction when one means truly plotting the murder of your son)

This was full of action and kept me on the edge of my seat. I love that Mace stood by Luc, even though the newly discovered goji hierarchy forbid him from marrying him. I was pretty confused by the prophecy part.

Basically, I just put on my Calmes glasses for this one and enjoyed the ride. It was all kinds of fun, but not what I’d call a favorite of hers.

Fans will enjoy it.
