More About the Author

As far back as I can remember, I've had a love affair with books. I loved to live vicariously through each character, and dreamed of the day when I'd write my own books. I loved to write and make up stories, a talent which was both loved and hated by many of my English teachers. As I got older, I had teachers encourage me to write, but they admonished me to 'stop writing the weird stuff and tone down the sarcasm!' But what fun is that?

However, my other love was music, and playing clarinet and saxophone ended up paying my way through college by way of a scholarship. As is often the case, life happened and I didn't get back to writing until 2003, when my husband and son encouraged me to 'stop talking about it, and go do it!' So, I joined my local Romance Writers of America chapter and poured myself into learning everything I could about writing and publishing, and both the business and creative side of being a writer.

I worked hard, and in ten months wrote INTO A DANGEROUS MIND, and set about the business of submitting and entering contests while I moved on to writing STONE MAIDEN. I entered dozens of contests and rewrote and revised that book several dozen times. I also received tons of great rejections from both agents and editors. Yes - you read right - GREAT rejections. Most of them saying, "we really liked your story, but it has the following weaknesses..." With every one, I refined and rewrote and learned everything I could. Then in October 2004, I received the fateful 'call.' Okay, it was an email, but thus began one of the best chapters in my life. Since then, I've hit the ground running and never looked back. I also write under the pen name Cassie Ryan.

I currently live in sunny Arizona with my two favorite men-my husband and my son-and our two cats.

Format: Paperback
Ariel and her three sisters are the last of their warrior Gargoyle race that had been created by the Creator. They have protected humans from various forms of evil through out time from their birth to their rebirth when they were placed to live among the humans. Released after 500 years of loyal service the sisters have continued their role as protector's of humanity by forming the Knight Security Agency. Even though their powers remain intact they have lost their wings and don't turn to stone to sleep anymore. Ariel has been asked by a close and trusted friend to protect Logan McAllister, with or without his agreement. Nor will she be stopped by her libido, which had been locked in the deep freeze for a few hundred years and seems to be in overdrive while around him.

Ariel is a "take charge and take no prisoner's" kind of gal with a soft and fragile heart; you can't help but like and respect her. She says what she means and does what she says. She has had incredible heartache in the past which initially makes her suspicious of her intense response to Logan. As you read about her you empathize and champion Logan through their various dilemmas. You feel her resolve to do the right thing and fall in love with both of these characters in spite of and because of their subtle flaws.

Logan McAllister one of the "most sought after songwriters in Nashville" and has been the target of several minor skirmishes of someone either attempting to cut off the family jewels or harpoon them with an arrow. Either way it can't be very comfortable when someone is trying to harm your privates and he has no clue why. Scoffing at the idea that these incidents were not accidents, he attempts to sabotage his meeting with Ariel.

I was thoroughly entertained by this book. And that's just how it it supposed to be. Witty dialogues, great characters and the writing style kept me glued to the pages. Hopefully we don't have to wait too long for the sequels....this author is now on my auto-buy list.

An ancient prophecy foretells of the daughter of destiny and the son of the blood. Will this prophecy result in the rise of Good or Evil?

Ariel Knight is one of four remaining gargoyles. Formerly a warrior for God (who is female), Ariel and her three sisters have created the Knight Security Agency to continue protecting humanity. The Archangel, Gabriel, specifically requests their assistance with protecting Logan McAllister, a hot country singer. Logan is being beleaguered by attempts to emasculate him but doesn't want a bodyguard, particularly a female one he finds attractive. Ariel quickly demonstrates her abilities by poking holes in his current security and Logan reluctantly accepts the help.

Ariel is furious when she discovers Logan's business manager is none other than James Wellington, the vampire who broke her heart 200 years ago. Ariel and James will have to deal with their past history while a very jealous Logan has his own dilemma with the reappearance of his occasional girlfriend, Charity Taylor. Meanwhile, a whole host of supernatural beings are descending on Logan and it will take everyone's best efforts to ensure that the prophecy is fulfilled for the Good.

STONE MAIDEN is a stunning tale full of all sorts of interesting supernatural characters! Ariel is a strong woman and her gargoyle characteristics are particularly intriguing, including her tattoo that masks the wings when she is not using them. Readers will empathize with her emotional turmoil while admiring her fortitude in the face of adversity.

The cast of secondary characters is also enjoyable as Tina Gerow provides an unexpected level of depth to several minor characters.

I really enjoyed reading this book. It was fun and entertaining and there was an actual plot behind it, which is always nice. I found Alonna to be a little delight. A good read for sure and I look forward to reading the rest of the Clan's stories.

I Couldn't put this down! Great paranormal romance. Tons of likeable characters. It held my attention when the last 3 books failed to do so. Some crazy twists and turns and for sure an odd mix of God, zombies, and gargoyles but it worked for me. I will definitely purchase the next book. These sisters are worth following.
