“There’s just something very endearing and admirable about all [Calmes’] main characters that you can’t help but love them.”
~ Under the Covers

CHEVALIER is a Paranormal Romance from Mary Calmes that features gargoyles! Yes, gargoyles! I can only think of one other series that features gargoyles are their main supe but I have to say, this one caught my attention more.

And I think that’s all mainly due to Mary Calmes writing. Mason James is a fireman who looks to be quite normal at first. When he has a little accident at work, it forces him to take some time off. He has his boyfriend, Luc, who is pushing for them to make that next step in their relationship. This kind of scares Mason a little bit, but there is no doubt that he loves the guy immensely so he decides to ask Luc to move in with him.

Just when you think things are going well for the two, some people show up and tell him that he is the son of a comte and he is goji nobility. While it’s a lot to handle, Mason actually takes it in stride. That’s what I love about Calmes’ characters. She makes them seem so cool and effortless that you can’t help but fall into the story easily.

Once again, I was pulled into this story and falling in love with Mason and Luc right away. I honestly don’t think Calmes can write a character I hate. There’s just something very endearing and admirable about all her main characters that you can’t help but love them.

Although this is the second book in the series, I didn’t have any problems jumping into this story even though I didn’t read the first book. But after enjoying this book so much, I have no doubt that I’ll be returning to ROMANUS soon.

About Mary Calmes

Mary Calmes lives in Lexington, Kentucky, with her husband and two children and loves all the seasons except summer. She graduated from the University of the Pacific in Stockton, California, with a bachelor's degree in English literature. Due to the fact that it is English lit and not English grammar, do not ask her to point out a clause for you, as it will so not happen. She loves writing, becoming immersed in the process, and falling into the work. She can even tell you what her characters smell like. She loves buying books and going to conventions to meet her fans.

Blogger/Reviewer at Under the Covers Book Blog
I’m an obsessive makeup junkie and a compulsive reader. I like to call Under the Covers Book Blog my stomping ground, but when I’m not talking about books with my girls, I write New Adult Dystopian and Contemporary Romance under the pen name Ana Jolene (http://www.anajolene.com). I also work as a virtual assistant for authors. You also can find me as a reviewer and columnist for FreshFiction.com.

When it comes to books I’m pretty adventurous. I read everything from Paranormal Romance to Urban Fantasy, New Adult, BDSM, LGBT fiction, Cozy Mysteries and even YA. If it’s got the littlest trace of romance in it, then I’ll probably read it. That being said, my all-time favorite authors are J.R. Ward and Karen Marie Moning.

When I’m not submerged in a good book, you can find me musing about makeup and planners or dreaming about Kpop boys and beaches. Until then, check out my reviews and let’s talk books!

What a great surprise! I had no idea she was writing a follow-up to Romanus. I love her easy stories and characters, too. Nice review, Annie!
