My rating: 4 of 5 stars
Title: My Guardian Gryphon
Author: Krystal Shannan
I've been following Krystal Shannan for quite some time now and absolutely love how she takes paranormal romance and gives it her own brand and twists that continuously keep you captivated until you just want more. My Guardian Gryphon is the fifth novel in the Sanctuary, Texas series and has a Beauty and the Beast flair that made me fall in love with the story like there's no tomorrow. Alek is in charge of protecting the House of Lamidae, but as he reads to Gretchen everything, the girl enchants him in so many ways that he's wondering if he'll be able to keep his priorities straight. Only, Gretchen has her own destiny to fulfill - one that she's unsure she wants to follow as her feelings for Alek become stronger.
It's a new rendition of one of my favorite fairy tales and Krystal Shannan gave it a paranormal aspect that I absolutely loved. I fell in love with Gretchen and Alek and how it (their feelings) came naturally to them. It was a beautiful and breath taking story that had my blood singing and at times, my heart racing. I love what Krystal Shannan has to write because it always takes me on an unexpected journey.
