From the Author
Welcome to the Mythos Legacy!
Stone-Cold Heart is the fourth full-length novel in the Mythos Legacy series, where real myths find real love.
Each standalone story in the series can be read in any order--and ends happily!
Short Story Intro: Unintended Guardian
Book 1: Treasured Claim
Book 2: Pure Sacrifice
Book 3: Ironclad Devotion -- Winner of the 2015 National Readers' Choice Award!
Book 4: Stone-Cold Heart
If you're new to the series, check out Unintended Guardian (smarturl.it/UGKin), the short story introduction to the world. I hope you enjoy these contemporary fantasy/paranormal romances, where mythological beings (like shapeshifting gargoyles!) find their perfect match among humans.

Raquel and Garratt are both soldiers with scars, more internal than external. The look at flashbacks, PTSD and survivor's guilt felt authentic, totally engaging me in the journey for these characters. I'm not as sold on the love story aspect, thought things might have happened a little quickly, but with fiction there are word count restraints. Plus readers complain if it takes too long for the characters to "get together."
I was thrilled to learn this was the first in a spin-off series. The Mythos Legacy books are great but aren't truly tied together in the way most series are (or the way I like my series to be), so it will be fun to follow characters we know and love while being introduced to new ones who will take center stage for their own unfolding love story.
Jami Gold writes quite well and I'm never disappointed when I pick up one of her books.
Each of the books in the series is an independent story in it’s own right, a blend of the mythological with the earthly. I read Treasured Claim last year, which I greatly enjoyed, but Stone Cold Heart shows Ms. Gold’s vast imagination and talent at a whole new level.
I was immediately pulled in and anchored by the richly developed protagonist, Raquel Guerrero, a combat veteran who served in Afgahnistan as a Cultural Support Team member attached to a U.S. Army Special Ops unit. Raquel’s job was to venture ahead of her unit into remote villages and gather info from the local women, women who could prove just as dangerous as the men, as she soon found.
Following the attack that stole the lives of the men in her unit and left her near death, Raquel is back home in New York. She’s recovered from her flesh wounds, and has moved out of her bestie’s New York apartment and into her own, but she is now struggling to heal the wounds that can’t be seen -- the PTSD, the survivor’s guilt.
Haunted by another nightmare of the attack that stole her comrades from her, Raquel is at her lowest ebb, and finds the comfort she needs most, in the form of a hunky gargoyle named Garrett, who’s been watching her from his perch outside her window.
Abandoned by his regiment to a life locked in stone, his only hope of freeing himself and finding his brothers is to trick a human female into trusting her soul to him. Don’t want to give too much away here, because there are so many unexpected twists and turns to the plot, but suffice it to say Stone Cold Heart is an expertly paced, engrossing read I couldn’t put down.
Also, hats off to Ms. Gold for not only touching on the struggles of PTSD that so many returning service personel, as well as those in the civilian population, are struggling with, but also for highlighting the heroism of our often overlooked female war veterans. May all find the peace these characters have.
Excellent writing—check. Steamy love scenes—check. Want to find out what happens next with Raquel and Garrett—check.
As noted by the author, there wil be a spin off series. Yay! Can’t wait to see where the story goes from here!
With Jamie Gold, along with the imaginative settings and characters and the exploration of some deep issues, you get what you want in a romance. Everyone, no matter who (and, that "who" can be quite far fetched), can find true love and happiness.
