Thanks everyone for stopping by. Do you enjoy a bit of fantasy romance from time to time?


  1. Fantasy romance isn't usually my thing but this one sounds intriguing. I may have to do a little out-of-my-usual-genre reading.

  2. Mason - What an interesting concept for a story! I'm not usually one to reach first for a fantasy novel either but this one looks innovative.

  3. Thanks for your comments ladies. And thank you Mason!
    I hope you ladies will decide to take a chance and read PERFECT MISFITS. It's definitely an adult book, but in the end it's all about love :-) Thanks again.

  4. You don't see gargoyles in fiction often. Maybe it's the start of a new trend?
