Now, to keep Samantha safe, his only choice is to claim her. But will his desire expose the dark truth he's been fighting for so long?

As an intergalactic cop gifted with psionic abilities, Maurra instinctively went to the Ellinod's defense when she saw the immense and bestial-looking alien being attacked by a group of vicious Kronners. Little did she know what the Kronners had planned for her and the Ellinod until she woke up naked in a cell inside their ship. And it wasn't long before she found out a translation device had been implanted against her spine, debilitating her and making her helpless with pain whenever she tried to use her psi powers. Neither she nor the Ellinod had any idea how twisted their captors were, but they soon discovered that she and the beast were at the mercy of someone who expected them to "entertain" his "customers", and entertain them well regardless of the consequences. (Note: This book was previously released as Captive Surrender. It has been restored to its original content, including more than 7K additional words, and re-edited.)

The second book in New York Times bestselling author Christine Warren’s breathtaking Gargoyle series. Sometimes the beast will only awake if he has an innocent woman to protect... Art restorer Felicity “Fil” Shaltis can read the magic in auras, but her fascination with a valuable statue she’s asked to locate is magical in an entirely different way. Drawn to the stone beast in a way that mystifies even her, it’s all Fil can do to keep from being enraptured by the creature’s stone form. At least, until the fierce gargoyle statue comes to life as a powerful, and powerfully hot, immortal warrior ... Spar had no intention of waking unless one of the seven demons of the Dark pushed him to leave his isolation. But when a stunning, innocent woman finds herself marked by the demon, Spar is instantly drawn to her, will do anything to save her. With a looming threat to humanity on the rise, Spar has no time to fall for the woman who’s pure beauty commands his soul. But even the most fearsome beast of all doesn’t get to choose who steals his heart... “Soars with fun, witty characters and nonstop action.” ?Publishers Weekly on Stone Cold Lover Don't miss the other books in the Gargoyle series: Book #1: Heart of Stone Book #3: Hard as a Rock Book #4: Rocked by Love Book #5: Hard to Handle
