Dez wasn’t just Jasmine’s crush. A gargoyle Warden like Jas, he helped her come to terms with her destiny – fending off demons and maintaining balance between good and evil. He was her everything…right until the moment he disappeared without a trace. It didn’t help that Jas’s father had just announced that she and Dez would one day be mated. Hard not to take that personally.
And now he’s back, three years older, ten times hotter, ready to pick up exactly where they left off. But Jas isn’t taking that risk again. Dez has seven days to meet all her conditions and earn back her trust. Seven days filled with terrifying danger and sweet temptation. Seven days to win her heart – or shatter it all over again…Links:

This isn’t my first run in with gargoyles in fiction but it’s by far the best and although it’s not a full length book, Bitter Sweet Love is my favorite JLA/J.Lynn book so far. I fell for both Jas and Dez and I’m really hoping to see them again in White Hot Kiss. I’m also very interested in the Bitter Sweet Love side characters, Layla, Zayne, and our mystery demon who will be the main characters in the next book!!
