Summary from the publisher:

It's August 1977 in New York city and the stunning new Star Wars movie is smashing all box office records.

The weird sculptor Moss Alex Meinhardt lies dead at the foot of an ugly gargoyle he's half-completed. Natalia Grey's demon hunter father is also dead and his new partner, the astonishingly sexy Carson Connors, can't remember how it happened. Carson isn't sure what role he has played in Natalia's father's death, but after one look at Natalia, he does know that guilty or not, he's doomed.

Vampire lovers, Nick and Damian, have been tracking the Stonebrood clan for nearly a century. When Damian is slashed by one of the clan and barely survives, Nick encourages Tally to take up her father's sword and her heritage as a demon hunter.

Tally learns that the gargoyles Meinhardt carved have been brought to a life they should not have without the help of dark forces she and Carson must defeat -- once the gargoyles have risen. But the night is hours away yet, giving time for Tally and Carson to explore their explosive feelings for each other.

What happened to Carson during the night Tally's father died and what will happen tonight?

Warning: This story features multiple sex scenes, including anal sex, light bondage and the use of sex toys. Do not read this book if frank sexual language and sex scenes offend you.
No vampires or demon hunters came to harm in the making of this book. Gargoyles have been added to the official hunt list, however...

This is the first book in The Stonebrood Saga.
Book 1: Carson's Night
Book 2: Beauty's Beasts
Book 3: Sabrina's Clan

My Musings:

The description summarizes about 50% of CARSON'S NIGHT, which spans less than thirty-six hours.  The two see each other, fall in lust, then in love.  As far as the erotic part of this erotica goes, it wasn't lacking.  The first sex scene went from 26% to 44% on my kindle.  The second scene introduces some bondage and other kinkery. Regardless, the characters just fell a little flat for me.

Talla’s grief over her father’s death felt genuine until Carson appeared.  Instantly in lust, there were moments she seemed to forget her father's corpse just a few feet away.  Carson's immediate lust I could buy (he’s a guy, and it wasn’t his father that died...just a partner).

I really liked Cooper-Posey’s Bannockburn Binding and the twist at the end.  Though this Novella offered a bit of a twist around 72%, which I'd guessed early on, another 14% saw the story "end" without really showing us much.  I would have loved a bit more insight and explanation.  I checked the next book in the series thinking this is just the first episode in Talla and Carson’s story.  It’s not.  The next one is about their daughter in BEAUTY'S BEASTS.

If you're out for a quick erotic read that is light on the plot, this is the book for you.


Overall: 2 stars (There were a few technical issues such as unusual phases [e.g. unformed guilt], tense changes [written in past tense, but a few phrases were in present. “He's broken sweat trying to bring for the memories...”] and a few minor typos [than vs. that, Tally vs. Talley].
Sensuality level: 5

My FREE Kindle Quest

I've wanted a Kindle for what seems like forever, but haven't been able to afford it (and that's saying something since I can justify the cost of just about ANYTHING that I really want). I've tried winning one in one of the many giveaways that have taken place over the couple of years, but with no luck :( So I've decided to take matters in hand so to speak :) I've now decided that I am going to accumulate enough Swagbucks from my Swabucks searches to buy in essence my new Kindle will be FREE...funded entirely by my internet searches done on Swagbucks. I'll keep you informed of the Great Kindle Quest below (in case you're interested....if not feel free to just skip over this part, but really who wouldn't be interested in a FREE Kindle?)
Goal: $119
Current Swagbucks Amazon Gift Card balance: $90.00
If you'd like to learn how you can earn Swagbucks and earn your own Amazon Gift Cards to buy books, a Kindle or other merchandise sold at Amazon contact me and I would be more than happy to tell you how I plan to go about it. (just so you know you can earn both and gift cards on this rewards site)
