Maria Jennings awakes to find a naked man in bed with her--how he got there is a blank. Her shock soon turns to panic when she recognizes gargoyle warrior Denton Prescott, the man she's loved--and hungered for--for years. Before she can steal away, Denton, the sexiest hunk ever to draw breath is seducing her again, and it's every bit as hot as she ever dreamed.
Scorching sex aside, Maria is a Hussy, and her reawakened desires for him threaten her mission--to save Denton. But Denton has a mission of his own--convincing Maria it takes more than the loss of gargoyle magic to stop two soul mates from falling in love. He'll use every weapon in his erotic arsenal to prove it.

Excerpt from Fae's Gargoyle by Sally Painter
The image of Denton lying beside her flashed across her mind. Oh dear butterfly wings! She'd been in bed with Denton Prescott. Her breath came in hard, short pants. And she was running away from him because? She mentally shook herself. Because she had no explanation for being there. Because he didn't love her.
But Denton...naked... She wrung her hands together, longing to return to his bed and at long last live out her greatest fantasy. Enough of this. She had to leave before he found her there. She took a deep breath and reached for the door knob.
"Where are you going?" came a groggy baritone voice behind her.
Caught! Her heart skipped a beat. What should she do? She pretended she hadn't heard him and closed her fingers around the knob.
"Baby? Where are you going?"
Her heart was drumming so loudly in her ears she could barely hear but she certainly heard him call her baby.
"Ah...home," she said, not daring to look back at him. "I need to go home."
"But you are home. Did you forget where you are?" His laughter was rich and fell over her like melted chocolate. Her knees weakened. Why would he say she was home?
"I-I..." She mentally shrugged at how lame she sounded and closed her eyes, not daring a glance in his direction.
"It's normal. Sometimes it takes a few days to adjust. Memories can be sketchy until that time." He padded over to her and she found herself engulfed in muscular arms. Her breath hung in her throat.
"P-Please." The word squeaked past the tightening in her throat.
His hard body molded against her, shocking her senses into overdrive. His cock, thick and stiff, pressed into the small of her back. Liquid fire coursed through her. Denton was holding her in his arms. Sexy, naked Denton had called her baby. She could just melt into a pool of lust right there.
"Come back to bed, Missus Prescott."
"What?" The room spun around her.
Strong arms cocooned her and she leaned against him for support lest her legs give out from under her. The only thing she was aware of was his hard body pressed so tightly against hers. Nerve endings tingled and a rush of want seized her.
"It was a beautiful wedding, Maria," he whispered in her ear.
She had married Denton? How? When?
"Oh baby, you are the sexiest woman I've ever known." He nuzzled her neck and delightful shivers cascaded down her.
"I-I..." Her thoughts were jumbled. Each kiss he planted in the hollow of her neck made it impossible to think.
"Hmm, you taste sweet. I can't get enough of you." His heated breath fanned over her. "So where are you off to in the middle of the night?"
"Ah...my house...to get a few things."
He chuckled. "You have such a great sense of humor. I'll take you to a shop in the morning."
"Morning? But...you'll turn to stone if you go out." She pivoted to face him and was instantly lost in crystal-blue eyes. He was just as magnificent as he'd been that morning on campus. The passing years had made him sexier. The most promising warrior-in-training had grown into a mighty...strong...virile... She licked her lips.
He leaned down and covered her mouth with his. Maria quivered. His tongue teased her lips and she relaxed her mouth to receive him. Emotions welled inside her. His kiss deepened and she returned it by twisting her tongue around his.
Oh sweet faerie dust! How often had she dreamed of this moment? She didn't understand what had happened and no longer cared. Denton was kissing her. Firm hands cupped her buttocks and he lifted her to his waist. Her body responded in a rush of want and urgent need. She wrapped her legs around him and the silk dress slipped up her thighs, bunching around her waist.
