Thoroughly entertaining audio

Any additional comments?

Greg Tremblay gives such good audio. *sighs*

When firefighter Mason "Mace" James stops to help a naked old man on the side of the road one late night he doesn't expect his good Samaritan duty to change his life forever. Coming off a double shift, he's exhausted and the strange people and sights when he returns the old man home are just plain weird. When he ends up agreeing to stay the night, it's mainly because he meets Luc Toussaint and is intoxicated at first sight.

When things get a little more weird than Mace can explain away, even in his exhausted state, he quickly leaves and goes home. But events have now been set in motion, and Mace can't run from his man or his destiny.

An interesting paranormal romance, Mace finds the love of his life, learns he is a Romanus, that gargoyles are real and he can see their true forms, and that not everyone is happy for the Romanus to have been found.

Greg Tremblay showcases the confusion, wonder, and heat of the story all while drawing the listener in and wrapping them up creating this cocoon until the last seconds of the audio.

As with any Mary Calmes novella I find myself wanting more as soon as I get to the last page. Romanus felt a little unexplored, like there was so much more story to tell, but there's good news for readers as Mace and Luc's story continues in Chevalier.

Ultimately I was thoroughly entertained by the audio, with Greg Tremblay giving another fantastic performance. Recommended.

amazing, then it ends

Any additional comments?

This is one of those audio’s in which you get sucked in so quickly and then it ends, you actually think something went wrong with the download.

What a great start to a hopefully promising series.

An interesting twist to a ‘shifter’ series.

Mason, has always known he was adopted. He also has always known that dating has never gone well for him. Men get overly attached to fast, even with just one kiss.

One fateful night, he finds not only the answer to why, but what he hopes is the man to end the search.

Mace and Luc, two people that are perfect for each other. Luc knowing no one will ever want him, his true looks, his class, his station, has resigned him to a life alone. Mace sees through all that, see just the man.

Then the beginning of the story, the start of tale that in centuries in the making. A race as old as well, God.

Then it ends… Damn you, Mary Calmes!

The narration is brilliant, capturing the accents, the old, the young, the passion.
