Review @ChrstineWarren - Hard to Handle by Christine Warren (Gargoyles #5)

Hard to Handle
Gargoyles #5
by Christine Warren


The only male among four sisters, Michael Drummond is no stranger to women’s strength and formidable will. His Dublin pub, the Skin & Bones, is his refuge, a reassuringly masculine retreat. Until a fierce woman warrior from another realm bursts into his life, bringing with her a battle between good and evil…and an explosive dose of desire.

The first and only of her kind, Ash is a lone female gargoyle, a creature destined to protect mankind from Demons determined to unleash their darkest forces. But her arrival on Earth is more confusing than she expected: her bone-deep instinct to do battle is matched only by her untamed attraction to stubborn, stalwart Drum. If they manage to keep the world safe, can they turn the passion crackling between them into a love that will withstand the test of time?

About the Author:  Born and raised in coastal New England, Christine Warren lived in the South and the Mid-Atlantic before hopping to the other side of the country to take up the life of a transplant in the Pacific Northwest. She completely bypassed those states in the middle due to her landlocking phobia. Hmm, need to research a scientific term for that...

When not scrambling frantically to complete her latest writing project, Christine spends most of her time as a crazy animal lady, hanging out with her dog Levi (he’s the one with the hair) and pretending to train him to have some manners. She also hangs out with her horse, Cal—a thoroughbred with a craving for strawberry licorice twists—her goddog, Merlin; and her best friend, fellow author Hannah Murray. In addition to playing with her pets, Christine’s hobbies include identifying dog breeds from photos of their underbellies, appreciating fine and not-so-fine wines, shopping for the perfect pair of Christian Louboutin shoes, and most of all reading things someone else had to agonize over.

She enjoys hearing from readers and can be reached via email sent to or by postal mail to Christine Warren, PO Box 871900, Vancouver, WA 98687-1900.

My Thoughts - 5 out of 5 Unicorns - I loved it!!

***I choose what I read and review based on what intrigues me!!

The cover is deceiving because you think you are looking at the Guardian, but you are not!  Tricky Tricky!

This is the 5th book in the series, and it is for adults only due to the steamy content.  I highly recommend reading the series in order because the characters are much better when you understand them through their own book story :)

This book departs from tradition, and I loved it! I was very confused in the beginning, but I don’t usually read the blurbs because I like to be surprised.  And I was surprised! 

At first I thought Drum was a tool, but he was protective where his family was concerned which I admired.  I think he didn’t realize how much potential he had in the wake of his mom and sisters’ talents and thinking his was nothing of value and only a parlor trick.  I grow fond of him especially his protective streak.  Ash is a typical warrior and also more lost than most Guardians due to the circumstance surrounding her.  She is just as protective as Drum, and it makes for entertainment for sure!  Of course, I really loved when Kylie and Wynn joined with snarky conversations that are most amusing.  I couldn’t put this book down, and I’m sick as a dog right now!

I highly recommend this book and series to all readers to love rock hard men…and woman….get your minds out of the gutters…gargoyles rule!  You definitely want to read if you love Christine’s work too!  I can’t wait to see what Christine sculpts next!
