9781467909358: Blood From a Stone

What happens when Samson Bellmaine, a wealthy, handsome womanizer in the year 1511, breaks the heart and trust of a young lady who'd been his friend since childhood? He soon finds himself cursed by her angry, pagan priestess mother, and is now doomed to sit out an endless existence as a stone gargoyle...his body as cold and devoid of love as the heart that beat inside his once-human chest.  
 
Awakening only once every fifty years for one month's time, and after searching to no avail for the cure that will break the seemingly unbreakable spell, he's grown content to spend his short time as a man enjoying all the marvels and hedonistic pleasures the modern world has to offer; first in his native Europe, and then in America where he'd settled to sit out the long decades atop an old church.  
 
The year is 2011 and upon Awakening, Samson soon meets Willow Dalton...a smart, pretty nurse who works in the children's ward of a local hospital. As love warms his heart, and he discovers a mysterious side-effect of his condition; one that may hold the key to his freedom and may also cause him to lose her forever, he is now in a race against time...determined to stay at her side, and daring to hope that after five centuries he will finally find a way to break the curse before next full moon rises and he's turned from man to stone once more.

About the Author:

CYNTHIA LUCAS After reading countless romance novels, Cynthia Lucas, decided to put her self-proclaimed addiction to love to good use, and write her own. Her first self-published work, "When Lightning Strikes" gained her a captive audience, excellent reviews and requests for more of her enchanting writing style that leaves the reader feeling as though they've lived the story. Her sophomore effort, BLOOD FROM A STONE was chosen to go to the second round judging in the Amazon Breakthrough Novel Awards, an although it did not make the finals, it received positive feedback from Amazon's Expert Review Panel. It combines a sassy, modern feel with gothic flavored romance, in a sexy, spellbinding page turner that will keep readers captivated from start to finish. Cynthia is also an accomplished singer/songwriter in the musical act NORTH 2 SOUTH and is an international songwriting competition nominee and award winning lyricist. She currently resides in Largo, FL.

Review:

2013 Amazon Breakthrough Novel Awards Quarter-Finals Review:
This is a wonderful excerpt and apart from a few very minor issues with POV shifts, the major problem I had wasn't with content but with wondering why this hasn't been picked up by a publisher yet. This seems to be gearing up for the type of read that PNR lovers will crave, so I'll be surprised if this doesn't go far in the competition.
