SUMMARY
Few have ever dared to cross the boundaries--until now...

With a quarter century of burning hatred between the inhabitants of the Isle of Stone, Kayla knows all too well it is forbidden to cross boundaries. But that doesn't keep her from being sorely tempted.
Drawn to discover the secrets beyond the tree witches' forest, Kayla is intrigued by the talk of unconventional rock concerts in gargoyle territory.
But when she risks everything to sneak away from the coven, she never expects to return night after night, not just for the music, but for one particular gargoyle who captured her heart with his guitar.

Nor did she expect that her attention had not gone unnoticed...

With plans to seduce the pixie-like female, Mason spent several nights keeping a watchful eye on his prize, unaware she's not just a passing visitor. But when he discovers she's a tree witch, an enemy to his entire kind, Mason knows that anything between them would be forbidden. No matter how strong the temptation...

But other elements command their attention.

Something much more dangerous haunts the wolf shifters of the isle....

With the magic veil thinning there will be blood... and the full moon is coming.

Knights of Stone: Mason is the first book in a shifter paranormal romance series with a Highland touch and a hard hit of rock romance. If you like hot men in kilts, dark paranormal thrills, and forbidden love, then you'll be hooked by the Highland Gargoyles Series!

Makes a squee noise when realizes that this story has rock star gargoyles…in kilts! Okay, backtracking. This is very much a boy meets girl ala Romeo and Juliet. "Two [clans], both alike in dignity, In fair [Isle of Stone], where we lay our scene, From ancient grudge break to new mutiny,
Where civil blood makes civil hands unclean" (Shakespeare). Except, we do get our much needed happily ever after. Yay.

Read on to meet the first of the Knights of Stone when Mason, one of the rock star gargoyles, falls for a tree witch, Kayla. Living on a mystical island off Scotland, the clans share the island with wolf shifters. Thanks (that's sarcasm) to a rift between the different clans, violence ensued and ever since, they've lived separate lives each fearing the other.

But humans are coming. Spurred on by in an interest in the gargoyle brothers and their music, humans have been coming to the island to hear them play when out of control wolf shifters attack, wreaking havoc at the concert and jeopardizing the entire island when the humans flee in the aftermath.

Did I catch your attention?

I really enjoyed this story. It was sweet and charming on so many levels and the development of the relationship between Mason and Kayla was delightful. The interactions between the clans and the backstory melded well leaving us with a concerted sigh of relief when love triumphs over fear.

KNIGHTS OF STONE: MASON is the first book in the Highland Gargoyles series. Mason is the middle brother (I think) and a guitarist in the rock band. Kayla is a tree witch and has crossed the boundaries to watch them play, even whilst knowing it is forbidden. These two connect on a sensual level, and they don't want to fight it, even though they know they should. However, things are happening amongst the three species that share the Isle of Stone, and it may break down borders, or it might just destroy them all.

Whilst Mason is hot/sexy/built... and whatever you want to say about him, there was an innocence between both him and Kayla that leapt off the page. Now, don't get me wrong, it was as hot anything, but still tinged with this innocence that was delightful. I absolutely loved that part. Kayla is strong and sassy, yet not disrespectful to her elders... at least, not until they disrespect her. Both characters are perfect for each other, and memorable in their own rights.

With no editing or grammatical errors that disrupted my reading flow, this book flowed smoothly along, involving me in their story. This is the first book in the series, so do I want to read the others? You betcha! Absolutely recommended by me.
