Gargoyles guard things. That's a fact of life. Knuckles, head doorman of Moonlight & Magic, leads a simple life. People cause trouble, he talks to them. People continue to cause trouble and he proves how squishable most races are compared to a creature hewn out of stone. Knuckles doesn't do gentle.
That is, until he rescues Neri, a fragile human woman, quite literally from a fate worse than death. Can a gargoyle fall in love? Can a human woman make the leap of faith required to accept him for what he is?
Gargoyles aren’t real they are only grotesque statues that adorn old building, right? At least that is what humans think including Neri but when Neri’s world comes crashing down around her Knuckles comes to her rescue. She may be human but Neri sets off Knuckles’ protective streak like it has never been before. Can Neri accept Knuckles once she finds out the truth or will she run like all the others before her?
This was a wonderful love story that I enjoyed from beginning to end. I adored Knuckles; he is a man who loves with all his heart and willingly gives it to Neri. Neri is a great woman, I admire the inner strength and love that she has. Watching the feelings between the two blossoms was a nice read. Neri never backs down and continues to explore her newfound feelings no matter what. The two make a great couple; ready to do whatever is needed for the other.
Sunlight and Slavery was a book that I didn’t want to put down. I was drawn into the wondrous world that this author has woven and got lost within its pages. I enjoyed seeing and visiting with some of the other characters from the previous book and hope we get to see everyone once again in the next book.
