Hard as a Rock, by Sara Jay
Let’s welcome Sara Jay. Sara’s book, Hard as a Rock, is available from Changeling Press.
Here is the blurb from Amazon:
Canna is caught between a rock and a hard place. And she loves it!
Canna, an impish, flirty fairy, loves to service just about any client who enters the Pleasure Club, a futuristic sex club. But although the clientele is satisfied, Canna aches for the impossible. A sexy, larger-than-life gargoyle statue that happens to be a simple decor item… or is it?
Basalt has spent centuries wanting Canna all to himself. Though her nightly visits train her to be his perfect lover, will she still want him when she finds out who he really is?
Being a faery makes your job outlook pretty wide open. Canna’s experience ranges from giving an extra set of hands to a gentleman in need to adding her assets to a group as needed. She’s always coming and going, helping male patrons rise to the occasion and female guests become regular customers. The owner of the establishment is a jerk, but Canna pretty much works for herself. He’d love to make her work for him and has all kinds of schemes to trap her into it, but she just won’t have it.
Basalt, on the other hand, doesn’t say much while he’s on sentry duty. Even though he doesn’t do much at the moment, it’s far from boring with Canna around. His stoic, stony form is akin to a member of the Queen’s Guard, which is fitting since his experience is serving people in power. The last employer he had gave him a pretty bad recommendation. After all, he did refuse to do his job after thousands of years of doing it, so now he’s pretty much stuck between a rock and a hard place. Or perhaps he is both the rock and the hard place. You never know with gargoyles.
While Canna quite enjoys her job, her life just isn’t complete without a partner—and Basalt could certainly use a career change. Although this office is no traditional cubicle setting, these two definitely met on the job—or, at least, one of their jobs. Canna just doesn’t remember it.
A brief excerpt:
Her obsidian god stared back at her.
She shrank back down to human size and sighed.
The creature wasn’t real, of course. In fact, its purpose was mainly aesthetic. Few people climbed onto the fierce gargoyle guarding the doorway into the rest of the club. Canna certainly didn’t mind; it made him all the more her property.
Seven feet of black volcanic rock loomed over patrons’ heads. His mouth pulled back in a menacing growl, only partly open. Long black hair draped down his back as shiny and lifelike as any centaur’s. His half-extended wings nearly touched the floor. They flanked a trunk bulging with muscle and strength, scarred with streaks that must have been from being moved around over the years. Had he been a real gargoyle, the sculpture would undoubtedly lead his pride as an alpha.
She called him Goliath, like the giant brought down by a rock as solid as he was.
Hard As a Rock is available from Changeling Press.
