About the Author
USA Today bestselling author Lisa Carlisle loves stories with dark, brooding heroes and independent heroines. She’s honored to be a multi-published author writing in different genres since she’s wanted to be a writer since the sixth grade.

Her romances have been named Top Picks at Night Owl Reviews and All Romance Ebooks.
When she was younger, she worked in a variety of jobs, moving to various countries. She was deployed to Okinawa, Japan, while in the military; backpacked alone through Europe; and lived in Paris before returning to the U.S. She owned a bookstore for a few years as she loves to read. She’s now married to a fantastic man, and they have two kids, two kittens, and too many fish.
Interview with Lisa Carlisle
Why did you write this book?
I’ve always had a thing for gargoyles. I envisioned writing a story about five statues; the story begins when one begins to move. That story bloomed into a much larger world—one on a mystical Scottish island with five gargoyle shifter brothers. I wrote the first book, Knights of Stone: Mason, and was thrilled and surprised when readers asked for more. Of course, I was happy to comply and ideas began spinning for each brother. Bryce is the second oldest brother and the beta of the gargoyle clan. He’s content as his role as second—until he meets Mairi and his entire world changes.
What is your favorite genre to read?
I enjoy reading romance, mysteries, and nonfiction, but the last year I’ve read many shifter romances.
Who is your favorite character from fiction (not including your own)?
I’m drawn to dark, brooding characters, like Heathcliff in Wuthering Heights, or Snape in the Harry Potter books.
What are you working on at the moment, and will see from you in coming months?
For 2016, my main focus is on stories for each brother in the Knights of Stone, but I’m also working on other paranormal and military romances. I’m also in three upcoming, multi-author boxed sets.
Please tell us about your latest book.
What happens when love interferes with plans, during the most unfortunate of times?
Gargoyle shifter, and the last of her clan, Mairi, is running for her life, desperate to keep hidden. When she spots two winged creatures flying high above her in the Highlands of Scotland, she momentarily panics, thinking they’re the same beasts who murdered her family along with her entire clan. Realizing they’re gargoyles like her, she takes flight and discreetly follows them to an island.
Bryce, beta of his clan and drummer for the Knights of Stone, senses something is amiss on the Isle of Stone. At first, he believes he’s merely discomfited by the rumors of atrocities occurring in the Highlands. However, he discovers an intruder on the magically-concealed island home. Once he ascertains that the flame-haired beauty is the sole survivor of a traumatizing attack, he returns to the Highlands to warn his former clan.
Somewhere between cautioning the clan and realizing the necessity of destroying the beasts that threaten them all, Mairi and Bryce discover an attraction that quickly evolves into a consuming passion. A problem even greater than the murderous fiends becomes apparent – the love they share may not survive the battle.
