Have you heard of Shelley's book?
Elizabeth's secrets will kill her, but the devotion of a gargoyle can save her.
In 1894, seventeen year old Elizabeth Riemma pulls the clothes from her dead twin's body and assumes his identity. To avoid her murderous uncle, she attends her brother’s school on Marettimo Island, which is forbidden to women. Elizabeth takes solace in sculpting and one night, she awakens her gargoyle.
Gorgeous and fiercely loyal, Aelius uses his abilities to aid Elizabeth in keeping her secret. He only asks one thing in return- a kiss. As Elizabeth learns confidence from her creation, suspicions rise and the island’s bloody history threaten to bury them.
Elizabeth must hide her gender. Aelius must hide his existence. But both of them dream of the impossible- to be together.
Shelley Martin taught kindergarten and rustled cattle; once upon a time. She’s now a mother and wife, and loves living in North Idaho. Her imagination has always plagued her, the characters jumping into her head at some random song or thought. She started writing when she was ten, finishing her first short story when she was eleven. The paranormal has always fascinated her, and nothing draws her to the page more than the whisperings of fantastical creatures.
