From New York Times bestselling author Jacquelyn Frank comes a seductive new paranormal romance set in the World of the Nightwalkers, as a battle-scarred bodyguard and a sensitive beauty risk their lives—and their hearts—in the face of evil.

When Katrina Haynes discovers a large man lying wounded in the snow, she fears he is at death’s door. But as Kat tends to his injuries, she quickly realizes that they’re the least of her worries. With an irresistible Scottish brogue and a strange ability to harden his chiseled body like a statue, the stranger awakens a desire she is unable to resist—and a fascination about the intriguing world he exists in.

As a proud Gargoyle, Ahnvil must safeguard the Nightwalker to whom he’s sworn fealty. But as this bewitching woman nurses him back to health, arousing an almost uncontrollable hunger within him, he is possessed with the fierce impulse to protect her as well. And he will have to shield her—for by coming to his rescue, Kat has placed herself in the middle of a supernatural war . . . and exposed herself to dark, powerful magic. As human and Gargoyle forge an unbreakable bond, Kat will discover that despite his intimidating strength and size, one thing Ahnvil does not possess is a heart of stone.

My Rating: 4 Roses

Dark, thrilling, and romantic. Forged was a lovely paranormal romance. I really enjoyed reading it.

Kat was a lovely heroine. She was truly kind and genuinely likable. But, even though she was small, it would be a mistake to underestimate her. She was strong and held her own. She refused to let anyone run all over her and really proved herself. I thought she was great.

Ahnvil was okay. He was a bit too overbearing at times and that made me get annoyed with him. But, he could also be sweet and he had his moments. So, overall, I was fine with him.

The romance was good. I wasn't totally feeling it, partly because of my issue with Ahnvil. But, I still thought they were sweet together and the chemistry was definitely hot.

The plot was fast paced. I wasn't totally hooked, but I was kept interested the entire way through. There were tons of thrills and secrets and all that kept me on the edge of my seat. I really enjoyed the story and the ending was great.

Forged was a lovely paranormal romance. I really enjoyed reading this wonderful book. It had thrills, secrets, and, of course, romance. Lovers of romance, this is a book you'll want to check out.
