ARC Review of Forged by Jacquelyn Frank


From New York Times bestselling author Jacquelyn Frank comes a seductive new paranormal romance set in the World of the Nightwalkers, as a battle-scarred bodyguard and a sensitive beauty risk their lives—and their hearts—in the face of evil.

When Katrina Haynes discovers a large man lying wounded in the snow, she fears he is at death’s door. But as Kat tends to his injuries, she quickly realizes that they’re the least of her worries. With an irresistible Scottish brogue and a strange ability to harden his chiseled body like a statue, the stranger awakens a desire she is unable to resist—and a fascination about the intriguing world he exists in.
As a proud Gargoyle, Ahnvil must safeguard the Nightwalker to whom he’s sworn fealty. But as this bewitching woman nurses him back to health, arousing an almost uncontrollable hunger within him, he is possessed with the fierce impulse to protect her as well. And he will have to shield her—for by coming to his rescue, Kat has placed herself in the middle of a supernatural war . . . and exposed herself to dark, powerful magic. As human and Gargoyle forge an unbreakable bond, Kat will discover that despite his intimidating strength and size, one thing Ahnvil does not possess is a heart of stone.


Its been so long since I read a Nighwalker book, that I forgot how seductive and breathtaking they were. Forged has got to be one of the BEST books of 2014! Jacquelyn Frank fans will NOT be disappointed. I will definitely be doing a reread and catching up on the Nighwalker books that I have missed.
I was transfixed by the story of a gorgeous Scottish Gargoyle named Ahnvil, who was once a slave and who escaped only to be injured during his escape. He was thankfully rescued by a beautiful woman, Katrina who has a few secrets of her own, ones she isn't even aware she has.
 After saving Ahnvil from death outside in the snow, she treats his wounds and ends up donning an amulet that is cursed. So the two of them set out to get it removed as Ahnvil takes protecting the beautiful mortal seriously, things get dangerous and even though the sun can harm both him and Katirna and enemies come from everywhere to steal the amulet back, both Ahnvil and Katrina start to fall for each other.
I was really caught up in this story and found it to be dark, sexy, seductive..the perfect paranormal romance. Jacquelyn Frank creates a world so dark yet intriguing its no wonder so many have fallen for this Series. I give Forged a OUTSTANDING FIVE OUT OF FIVE STARS! This book will be etched into my memory for a long while as one of the most satisfying reads of this new year.
