When Delia Forrest talks to statues, they talk back. She is, after all, the last of the Steward witches.
After an arsonist torches her ancestral home with her estranged father still inside, Delia is forced to sell the estate to pay his medical bills. Her childhood crush, Grant Wolverton, makes a handsome offer for Steward House, vowing to return it to its former glory. Delia agrees, as long as he'll allow her to oversee the restoration.
Working so closely with Grant, Delia finds it difficult to hide her unique talent—especially when their growing passion fuels her abilities.
But someone else lusts after both her man and the raw power contained in the Steward land. Soon Delia finds herself fighting not just for Grant's love, but for both their lives...
Okay, first things first...a HUGE thank you to Carina Press and Keri Stevens for awarding me the absolute privilege of reviewing this book. I feel honored!!
I've gotta say, this book was AWESOME, and quite a deal if you're looking for it on your Kindle.
Delia, the books main character, comes from a long line of witches, but not the witches your thinking of...no spell books or cauldrons to be found here. Delia is unique. She has the ability to talk to stone...statues to be precise. The book opens with a hilarious scene in which Delia, who restores statues for a living, it having an inappropriate conversation with a statue. That's where this book sucked me in. It was funny, I was laughing out loud. Ms. Stevens gives each and every character that is introduced in the book their own personality, regardless of if they are flesh or stone.
This book had everything I needed. It made me laugh, it made me cry, it held me in suspense, there were some pretty HOT scenes with sexy man-hunk, Grant. I've gotta say, this book was a HIT in my mind. Seriously, I don't have a paper copy and I wish I did, so I could let all my friends borrow it!! It was fantastic.
It's well worth it and SO different. It was so refreshing to read something COMPLETELY different from what I usually review. Yes, it was still paranormal romance, but it introduced a whole new aspect on the genre. Bravo!!
