Kylie Kramer knows that she’s putting her life in danger when she decides to investigate her friend’s mysterious death. What she doesn’t know is that she’s being watched over by a powerful protector. A legend in stone who has defended humanity throughout the ages. A rock-hard savior who swoops down from the sky, scoops Kylie into his impossibly strong arms, and draws her into a world that no mortal woman can imagine…or resist.


As the strongest of the gargoyles, Dag is sworn to destroy the demons that threaten Kylie’s world before returning to his stony slumber. But the burning desire she ignites in him is even harder to fight-an all-consuming force that, once unleashed, can never be tamed. As their passion grows, so do the ranks of a demonic army plotting to take over the earth. When the ultimate battle begins, Dag and Kylie must face some demons of their own-to carve out a love that’s stronger than time.

Rocked By Love is the 4th novel in Christine Warren’s Gargoyles series. It is a full length novel with an HEA and a semi cliff hanger. By this, I mean that it finishes out the story between the main characters, but the over-arcing story line, overall plot, does not finish here. In my estimation, you’ll need about three more books before that happens. (That is a guestimate off of what the characters have said within the book.)

It is written from a third person, alternating point-of-view between the two main characters. While it is the 4th novel in the series, it can be read as a stand alone. I walked into this series on this book myself. I don’t feel as if I lost anything by not reading the rest of the series, save for a few one liners and nicknames between the characters from the other books. Your focus really does stay on the characters within this book.

While I thought the writing itself was fantastic and the heroine was down right hilarious at moments, this book couldn’t completely keep my interest. That’s not to say it’s bad, I’m not sure what it was exactly, I can’t pinpoint it. I hit the 70% mark in the book and just lagged out. I finished it, but it took me five days to do so. Again, I really doubt that is on the author or the story. I enjoyed the story when I got back into it, but I think the lag out caused me to just want the book finished.

It has a great ending, and can draw you into a world full of gargoyles, demons, wardens, and magic. A fun paranormal read and a perfect change of pace. I would recommend it.
