Fate of a Gargoyle

Rejected by his fairy.

In a time when magic ruled the Earth, gargoyles and fairies signed a truce and gargoyles became the protectors of the fairy realm. Cursed into stone by the actions of his father, gargoyle Sean Foley is now animated in the twenty first century and must protect sharp, inner-city lawyer Colleen Connelly. If he doesn’t join forces with her the goblin will kill her and Sean will be turned back to stone to wait possibly centuries to find her again. How can he convince her that he isn’t the threat and that she is a mystical being?

This is Book #2 in the When Gargoyles Love Trilogy.

Emily Pennington:

"Sean and Colleen's Story."

In Ireland, Seamus Foley, head guard of the fairies but prone to drink too much, had deflowered a fairy and she was now carrying his child. Their Queen said, since she could not punish Seamus himself – who had already been banished – she would instead punish his 3 sons. Therefore, the Foleys will no longer guard the fairies and are cursed to remain as stone at the church until a fairy they are destined to protect comes to them. They will have to remain with the fairy for a day before they will become alive again. The fairy will seek them when she is in danger and, if the gargoyle fails to save her from the danger, he will revert to stone again. Each of the 3 sons had their own special fairy or her offspring to save them; no one else could affect the curse. It sounded impossible.

Colleen Connelly was a lawyer whose firm of Ledger, Chart, and Hier did all of the legal work for the Tocci family. Colleen was assigned this case for Tony Tocci as a reward for her hard work. They had been waiting three hours for the verdict and she was getting restless. When the verdict finally came in, he was found guilty! Then he turned to her and kissed him! She knew her firm had set her up! They knew this case could not be won, but now he has grounds to file an appeal – he will claim his attorney slept with him! That kiss on the lips would go viral on social media, and she had been so shocked that she never even slapped his face! When she returned to the office, she was asked to take a couple of weeks off; and it was obvious she had been correct that she was the sacrificial lamb. They knew this would happen. When she met with her friend, Fiona, later for some comfort, she suggested Colleen go to Ireland. Meg had done that and found a gorgeous man who married her!

In Ireland, Colleen stopped to eat, then drove to the ocean view, right next to an old stone church. Only a fairy would be able to see the gargoyles, and Sean watched as the woman looked right at him and got out of the car! Sean knew that if she was his fairy, she was either in trouble or soon would be! As Colleen drove back to the hotel, her boss phoned. Now Holden O’Shannon, son of the head of the Irish Mafia in Philadelphia, wants her to defend him! It was rumored they controlled the majority of the illegal activity in a large chunk of the East Coast. Why would the mafia want her to defend them? And when she told her boss she would have to win the case, he laughed and said he wasn’t worried about that.

With gargoyle Sean Foley finally animated in the twenty first century, his job is to protect the clever, inner-city lawyer -- Colleen. Over the centuries, the gargoyles had watched what had happened to the fairies they had been born to protect. As they had died off, somewhere along the line the fairies had forgotten who they were. But unless he can join forces with Colleen, a goblin involved in her case will kill her and Sean will be turned back to stone for many more centuries before he finds another descendant to bring him back to life. With magic no longer a strong force in the world, how can he convince her that he isn’t a threat, he is there to help her, and that she herself is a magical being? How is he going to convince his fairy she is in real danger from a goblin? And even more important, how can he do that without falling in love with her?

A. Llew:

"Great addition to the Sci-Fi/Paranormal Romance genre!"

The writing draws you in and keeps you involved throughout the whole story, I found myself in love with not only the characters but also the world she created.

The attitudes toward the events that are happening make the story even richer and the characters more relatable.


Liz Burke:

"Great Gargoyle Romance."

After he spends 24 hours with his fairy Sean Foley is turned from stone to gargoyle/man now all he has to do is convince Colleen Connelly that she really is a fairly and that he is a gargoyle and it is his duty to protect her from goblins. This is the second book in the series that is a stand alone with a HEA. As always I look forward to reading more from Chris Redding.

Colleen loses the case she was defending and the person she was defending kisses her in the courtroom there by giving the excuse that she was sleeping with him for his appeal. Her boss makes her take a leave and she heads to Ireland where she stops at the church where Donal's brothers are still trapped in their stone form. Gargoyle Sean Foley realizes Colleen is his Fairy and plans how to get her to takes him with her when she leaves. Called back early Colleen stops to say goodbye to the stone Gargoyles when one of them rocks itself free and she catches it and takes it with her.

Katherine J.:

"Short fun read."

Another good short read that will keep you entertained until the end. Another of the gargoyle brothers finds his fairy and must protect her from a goblin. In this case the fairy is a lawyer and the goblin is her client. In the end the gargoyle and fairy kick the goblins behind and they fall in love. I loved this book and look forward to the next one. There is still one brother to go.
