Confined to an ancient abbey, trapped in a community of women, Dani longs for a man's touch. She knows that she wasn't meant for celibacy and rebels against the sisters' teachings. She doesn't understand why the sisters worship cold stone figures.
But the abbey holds a secret - it holds magic. And its stone guardians awake when the time is right. And they have been watching Dani, waiting for the New Moon. They know that she wasn't meant to be celibate, but they also know that she wasn't meant for a man.
Alone in the bell tower, ringing in the moon, Dani finds herself surrounded by gargoyles, intent on showing her what she's been missing. Will she surrender to their sensual domination? Or will her fear rob the abbey of its guardians?
