Loving the Monster Within by Cassidy K. O’Connor
(Previously released in the Unusual Seductions Anthology)
Penelope Harbough has dedicated her life to her job at a home for battered women and children. With such a stressful and heartbreaking job, she finds her solace in the arms of Frank - a gargoyle statue that sits atop her building watching over the city. She spills her heart to him daily while watching the sun rise.
Asald sold his soul for the woman he loved. After upsetting the prince of Hell, he is cursed to become the monster he feared was inside him. To make up for some of the guilt, he takes it upon himself to protect the women of the shelter. A vigilante. A modern day winged Robin Hood, of sorts. Until he's forced to reveal himself...
Love trapped him but can it save him, too? When Penelope learns the truth, will she run screaming or will love prevail?
4 out of 5 (very good)
This is a fun, quick read that actually deals with a serious subject. Penelope works in a women's shelter for abused families. She is happy in her job as she feels she is making a difference. Whenever it gets too much though, she retreats to the roof and spends time with a gargoyle, telling him all her thoughts. Things take a twist when a vigilante starts beating up the men who the women have escaped from. When we meet Asald, we find out his story, along with bringing us up to date.
Well written, with no editing or grammatical errors to distract the eye, this is a quick steamy read. Definitely recommended for all fans of gargoyles!
