Gustav’s Gargoyle Adventure (Wolves of Stone Ridge #14) by Charlie Richards

Extasy Books Presents


Out of the Cage: When your mate can just fly away, you need to give him a reason to stay.

Gustav Hermance is finally putting his life back together. He’s landed a job as a foreman for a construction company, he hasn’t suffered a panic attack in months, and he’s found an apartment of his own. Gus’s hard-earned independence has helped him put the experiments the scientists conducted on him behind him. It brings quiet nights, poker evenings with buddies, and learning to be comfortable with his mated friend’s displays of affection. Everything is going well, until he scents something so wonderful, he becomes obsessed with it. Gus thinks he’s found his mate, but the guy’s scent fades too quickly for him to locate the source. With the help of his buddies, he starts a search of Stone Ridge that quickly expands to include the forests around them. What he finds is Tible, a creature he never knew existed. Can he convince the sexy male that their differences don’t have to tear them apart?

I love this book for several reasons. First, this is when we are introduced to Gargoyles and it is the start of the spin off “A Paranormal’s Love” series ( It also has Tible who is a gargoyle without a clutch and he goes through all the new mating stuff on his own!

Second, without spoiling too much, we also have our first mpreg of the series (I think it’s the first.) and it was awesome!

Third, there are a some fun dynamics between the giant and the smaller guy that I just adore.

We don’t move the story arc a lot with this one – except to introduce the spin off series – but we do get to see our guys including Lyle and Gordon and Grady.

Gus is so sweet and Tible is adorable and together they are a really sweet couple who have a lot of hot smexy times!
