Meet your perfect match this Saturday night—or your perfect match for the night.

The eclipse of the red Supermoon sends crowds into Boston for an evening hyped up for a night of passion, one not to be missed. Boston police officer Larissa Riley wants nothing to do with the media-driven event, but her friend convinces her they need a night out after all they've gone through. They visit a new gothic-themed club where Larissa is disturbed by the attractive stranger eying her.

Roman, a gargoyle shifter and commander of the Stone Sentries, patrols from the rooftop of a club on the night of the eclipse. The Supermoon bodes danger and he puts all his sentries on watch. When a blast of dark magic soars past him, he searches for its origin and fixes on a brunette. Something about her is different, demanding all senses be on high alert. Is she dangerous? Or is she in danger?

Deciding a night with a hot stranger would be good for her, Larissa invites Roman back to her hotel, unaware he is surveilling her. The night takes a dark turn as secrets are uncovered and danger moves in. Her beloved city is under attack. Larissa must decide who to trust before all is lost, including the fate of her closest friend.


Tempted by the Gargoyle is the start of the Boston Stone Sentries series by author Lisa Carlisle. I really loved this one a lot there is action, adventure, and romance all rolled into a book I could not put down.
Larissa is a Boston police officer. She is high strung, and a wee bit guarded to say the least. She is a strong character. I like a strong female lead and she is that. She has her moments where I am like no don't do that! But over all she is the kind of character you would want on your side in a fight and as a friend.
Roman is a gargoyle shifter. He is the commander of the stone sentries. He is strong, a bit Alpha. But he is not overly Alpha. He is a completely likeable guardian. Protective, strong, and sexy all to boot.
There is lots of romance in this book. Fast connections that I loved. Kept me turning the pages and wanting more. I want more from this series in the future. Bring on the sexy gargoyles and those who love them.
