Five hundred years ago Marius Drakon (from Romania) and his family were cursed by a witch that made them gargoyles (they are stone in the daytime, a winged creature at night). This was done by the witch to avenge her cousin's death. The only way to break the curse is to kill the descendant of the witch---the heroine Alexandra Barret. So Marius volunteers to go to New York City to find her, and kill her. (He is only able to move about freely as a human in the daytime during the Spring Equinox, for 29 days, without turning to stone. Though he is still turning into a winged creature at night---very tall with wings, horns, fangs!) He moves into her apartment building, next door to her, and starts to get to know her, and discovers he can't kill her. He finds her innocent and sweet and he is falling for her. Marius desperately tries finding other ways to break the curse but he only has 29 days to do it and time is running out!

Wow, I really enjoyed this book! I loved the action and the romance. I've never read a story with a hero that was a gargoyle before. I liked Marius, he was caring and sexy. I liked Alexandra. She had some psychic ability, and she was trying to help locate a lost girl who was kidnapped. This was a really good, sexy, and exciting read! ( )

Not a bad read. Alexandra is a journalist who occasionally has visions, usually as a result of touching something involving the person. At the moment she's trying to sort out a child kidnapper case and she can feel that time is running out. Her new neighbour is distracting her, he's gorgeous. There are also stories of a strange winged creature in the skies.

The neighbour is in fact a gargoyle, cursed by one of her ancestors. His family is convinced that if they kill her, ending her line, they will break the curse, but not only is she distracted by him, he is finding her irrestible.

The romance is a bit rushed feeling, but elements of it did really work well. I liked the interaction and the fact that things were thought through, but I'm not sure that it wouldn't have been better if his mum had revealed more to everyone earlier. ( )

Marius Drakon belonged to a clan of cursed gargoyles. With only a month to reverse the curse, Marius was sent to kill Alexandra Barret before something worse befalls them.

I could be wrong, but the story didn't feel like it fit into the one-month time frame. Also, I felt that Marius and Alexandra didn't spend too much time together (getting to know each other and everything), before they started falling in love. Otherwise, this was very good for the author's debut book (or second book?). I look forward to reading the other books in this series. ( )
