She was created to tempt…and enchant.

Sabrina Lark is a muse who has the ability to inspire any man…to do absolutely anything. Unfortunately for Sabrina, the latest human to fall under her spell has turned out to have one very dark side. Now he’s obsessed with her, and she’s realized—too late—that she just inspired a serial killer. She truly has the worst luck in the world.

Desperate, Sabrina makes a deal with the devil in order to get some serious paranormal protection. Her protection comes in the oh-so-sexy form of Adam Cross, a man who is able to resist her magic…because Adam really is made of stone.

He’s a real beast on the outside…

Cursed centuries before, Adam is a gargoyle. Fierce, strong, and absolutely unstoppable, he is the guard who is placed at Sabrina’s side. He’s supposed to protect her from every danger…he is not supposed to find himself falling under the seductive Sabrina’s spell. But even a man with a heart of stone can find himself pushed too far…

Sabrina thinks she may have found the perfect lover, but Adam’s past is about to come back and bite them both…and he may not be the man she can trust, after all. If she can’t find a way to touch the man inside the beast, if she can’t make his stone heart burn for her, then they’ll be lost.

Sabrina is a muse, possibly the last one ever. And she’s on the run. She inspired someone to greatness, but she didn’t see that he also had an underlying madness. Her inspiration led him to achieve so many amazing things, but it also brought out the psychopath he kept hidden. By the time she realized how he was, it was too late.

She was one of the creatures captured in the first couple of books, and while she was away from him, the evil side of his nature came to the front. She knows the only way she can stop him is to get help and make a deal with the devil. Or, the Lord of the Dark, Luke.

Luke offers her a bodyguard, and in return, she’ll owe him. And Luke always collects.

Adam can’t be killed; he’s made of stone. Literally. He’s a gargoyle. And he’s Sabrina’s new bodyguard. His job is to keep her safe, and to eliminate the threat to her. But her threat is harder to kill than they first thought, and he keeps finding Sabrina no matter where she goes.

There’s a twist at the end that kind of surprised me, but boy does it make the book. I love the Bad Things series, and I love the direction it’s going. I can’t wait for Leo’s book! Cynthia Eden has created one of my favorite series with this one, and I hope that Leo’s book isn’t the end.
