SUMMARY
Paranormal peacekeepers, Dawn Maza, the witch with a capital ‘B', and Duskan Entreri, one helluva beast, are partners and lovers… Actually, they are in love. They're not lovers yet. Stone separates them, making her a statue at night while he turns to granite by day, and the two have never consummated their love. Instead, they communicate via video and voice mail. That travesty will change tonight.

Under the advisement of a crone—who may or may not have ulterior motives—the pair must freeze time for a single chance at igniting the All Hallows sky with the fires of their passion.

Dusk and Dawn are up for the task. Halloween is about to get sexy.

DUSK TAKES DAWN is a short, sexy, bittersweet tale of star-crossed lovers who do everything in their power to be together. With some help, of course.

Dawn, a cursed child of the angels, turns to stone during the night, while Dusk, a gargoyle, turns to stone during the day. Hence, they never meet, face to face, that is, though they are partners in the peacekeeping force. However, working together caused them to fall in love with the other, and they find ways and means to be together. And a chance came, on All Hallows' Prelude...

I have to admit, I never found gargoyles sexy, but Dusk certainly is. How could you help not love a man, er, gargoyle, who'll do anything to make you happy, who takes care of you the best he could? Definitely sexy.

The worldbuilding is phenomenal, and this is certainly an original paranormal romance. I hope the world could be fleshed out more, as I'm interested to learn about it. The start was slow going at first, as the authors have to introduce the characters and explain the workd, but things picked up when Dawn went to retrieve the timekeeper, on Dusk's instructions. But just when the story's momentum picked up, the story was over. I had to admit to a moment's dismay at turning the page and seeing the authors' biography instead of more story.

However, the good news is, I think the story's not over! I'm sure there will be more instalments of Dusk's and Dawn's romance coming up, as well as their eventual freedom from stone (hopefully). There seem to be hints about such an eventuality. I'm certainly looking forward to them!
