When a regular night of Robin Hood-ery results in the manifestation of some, um, unusual paranormal abilities, perfume-maker Elleodora Fredricks realizes the normal world she lives in isn't quite... normal. And neither is she, thanks to her father, king of the shadow elves. Not only is he evil incarnate and the reason Elle moonlights as a burglar-someone has to take care of all his victims-he's stolen her memories.
And only reading her fate can fix that.
Good thing she's got a trio of hotties willing to help her find said fate, but only if she gives them something in return. Saving her oracle BFF's fiance, falling in love with the gargoyle, and making up for breaking the phoenix's heart ought to be a piece of cake for the princess of the shadow elves.
If only the king didn't want his daughter dead...

|Stone Cold Seduction (Set In Stone, #1)|
Ok, so thanks to Jess Macallan, Gargoyles are HOT! LOL
But let me rewind a bit. More often than not I find myself fairly entertained by a novel and a couple really weird plot points away of giving up, when the author turns it all around and makes me thoroughly enjoy a book.
This is exactly what happened with Stone Cold Seduction for me. Elle is a pretty interesting heroine, but the discrepancies in her attitudes and personality made me want to twist her neck innumerous times.
However, it were the secondary characters the hero and the world building that kept me going and I am SO glad that I did! Jess got me in the end and I was hooked and panting for the next book in the series.
Yes, the heroine got on my nerves, but she did get better towards the end and the eye candy + interesting plot kept me interested.
In a genre that is on the verge of running dry on originality, Jess was a breath of fresh air and I loved the world she created and I cannot wait to read more!
Thanks so much for tuning in and I’ll see you soon!
