CLICK HERE TO PURCHASE! Acon is a mountain god tasked to capture a beast so foul on a remote island; he never anticipates that the beast is a woman so beautiful that he falls head over heels for her. Kyma is the daughter of Medusa and determined to live alone except for the idiots who come after her seeking glory. We have two strong immortals who find a love worth fighting for. Can they be together even as Acon’s brothers want Kyma for their own purposes?

I loved HARD AS STONE. It had some yummy, sexy immortal brothers, a woman who finds herself loved by a man strong enough to take on anyone and some great scenes that left me panting. Ms. Sax delivers a hot little story that introduces you to her mountain gods who are big, bad and so sinful; they should come with a warning sign. With the right amount of steaminess, character development and engrossing storyline, the author delivers a story that will leave you gasping for more. I really enjoyed the way she introduces the brothers of Acon. They made me hope there will be more mountain god books in the future. I would love to know who Acon’s older brother is in love with and maybe see Acon and Kyma again.

Acon is a mountain god and immortal. He is tasked to capture the fearsome beast on a remote island for his brothers so they can trade it for a seat in Mount Olympus. When Acon gets there, he never anticipates that the fearsome beast is actually a beautiful woman who stirs his lusts and has him in a quandary. Can he capture the beautiful Kyma and turn her over to his brothers or can he keep her for himself, damn the consequences? I love, love, love Acon. He was strong, determined and very sexy. Who doesn’t like the strong, take charge alpha male worshipping them? I know I do. I found Kyma to be a strong female heroine who is perfect for Acon. She hates the idiots who hunt her and longs for peace. Longing for love and passion, Kyma finds it in Acon even as she fears that he will turn from her once he knows who and what she is. I love these two together. Between both of them, Ms. Sax keeps the reader glued to the pages to see what happens next as Acon deals with his brothers, their quest and his love for Kyma. The characters are intriguing and keep the reader engrossed in the story. The sex scenes enhance the flames that flare whenever Kyma and Acon are together and I swore the computer was going to combust half a dozen times while reading this hot little story.

If you are looking for a new type of story to heat your nights up, then grab HARD AS STONE. Cynthia Sax delivers a fresh take on the gargoyle lore and delivers it in her trademark writing style. This is an author you know will deliver an engrossing story with wonderful characters that leave you breathless. I am eager to see what else this author has in store for her readers in the future.
