As a Gargoyle shifter of New York City, Roman and his four brothers sit on top of the city library all day in their stone form, watching and waiting. On sun down they come alive and that is when Roman feels the tug towards his Beloved—the woman who he will be united to.

HER KNIGHT IN SHINING STONE is the first short story in The Gargoyles of New York series. We meet Roman, the elder of four brothers, all gargoyles who have yet to find their mate (Beloved). He is suffering pain when he shifts, a clear sign that he needs to meet his Beloved soon or he will be stuck in his gargoyle form. He finds her working as a waitress and the connection between them is instantaneous. Whilst she feels the connection, Cristiana also has doubts over whether she can be with Roman when she won't see him at all during the day.

Being as this is a short story, it moves along at a very swift pace. I would have preferred to have it 'fleshed out' a bit more - more detail on the history of Gargoyles, the mystery surrounding the danger that is coming to them, Cristiana's history - but that is just me. This was very well written, with no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow. I have been left wanting to know more, especially about Rafe. Thoroughly enjoyed it, and would recommend it as a quick read, coffee-break book.

HER KNIGHT IN SHINING STONE is a novella in the Gargoyles of New York Series. Our Hero, Roman, and his fellow gargoyles, watch over the city during the daytime from atop the New York Public Library. At night, they come alive.

Roman goes into a diner and there he meets his Beloved. A term he uses quite often during the story. He sees waitress Christiana and that's it, she's his. There is a boyfriend, but he turns out to be a jerk, so he's dispensed with rather quickly.

She goes home with him and the clothes come off rather quickly. Finding out he's a gargoyle is rather shocking but she takes it well. There's also the problem that someone has been going around and killing gargoyles during the day while they are defenseless. They narrowly miss this themselves.

This would have been a much better story had it been longer. While the idea is great, everything seemed much too rushed, especially the relationship, which happened right away.
