Calling of a Gargoyle
Cursed in a time when magic ruled the world, now reanimated, Declan Foley must not only learn how modern times work, but how modern women work.
He must convince his fairy that she is one before they alone can defeat a goblin threatening both of them. With his brothers warning not to toy with her heart ringing in his ears, he embarks on a quest to win it instead.
Fiona Brady is not interested in romance despite being instantly attracted to Declan. The man could sound sexy reading a phone book. Her burning passion is her art. When a sponsor comes along who is willing to pay for her to paint, she jumps at the chance. Little does she know he’s the goblin who is set on killing her.
Declan must race time and conquer his own impulsiveness to save Fiona and himself before he is cursed to be in stone for another millennia.

"Calling of a Gargoyle, great story."
The third book in the When Gargoyles Love series a well written story that kept me turning pages. This is Gargoyle Declan Foley and Fairy Fiona Brady's story, there is suspense, drama, danger, a Goblin villain, and romance. I enjoyed reading this story.
Great short super fun story. This story is about the third brother. Declan is the third brother who was in the middle of his training when he was turned into a stone gargoyle until his mate showed up. She had to be his fated fairy. Fiona is done with men and is trying to get away from her old boss who didn't pay her for 3 masterpieces without getting any credit for her work. After he dumps her she trying to get out of her contract with him but at the last minute he needs her to work. She grabs a little gargoyle statue to take as her muse but didn't know it was Declan the last brother gargoyle. There is plenty of action, instat love and drama. Delan needs to really learn the how to take care of himself and his fairy without getting his fairy and himself killed by the goblin who is threatening them. These three boos were so much fun to read.
"Another Great Story!"
(Warning: part of a series, but each have different sets of main characters within their world, each book has its own HEA)
I cannot get enough of this author and this series!
It is wrought with emotion and so well written that I absolutely could not put it down!
Each book has been cohesive and enlightening to the overall theme between these characters.
This is the story of Fiona and Declan. He must convince Fiona she is a fairy before the goblin can get to her. While she feels an attraction to she only wants to focus on her art which is her life’s passion. Can Declan protect her from the goblin who has just offered her a job to paint for him? I enjoyed this entertaining romance.
An interesting, steamy, action packed romance with lots of surprises and a great plot. These gargoyles sure are irresistible!
"Declan and Fiona's Story."
Long ago 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.
Fiona Brady was an artist’s assistant for the up-and-coming Damien. What she really did was paint his last three masterpieces without getting any credit for it. Then he dumped her for a younger “muse”. She really wanted to do more sculpting, but she had signed a contract to not produce any other art while employed there, so she had to wait until early the next year when it expired. Meg and Donal are back from their honeymoon, Sean just asked Colleen to marry him, but Fiona was done with men for now. Sure enough, her selfish boss Damien called her to come in to work on Saturday night! He hung up before she could ask any questions. She grabbed the little gargoyle statue -- actually Donal and Sean’s brother, Declan -- off the island and asked Meg if she could take it with her to work as her muse. Meg and Donal glanced at each other, but agreed.
Declan was pleased that Fiona fell asleep on the studio floor when he came alive. He had been in her company for twenty four hours by then. And he had known as soon as he saw her in Meg’s kitchen the night before that she was his fairy. Now reanimated, as the last of the 3 cursed brothers, Declan Foley must not only learn how modern times work, but how modern women work. He was the youngest of the brothers, over-confident and impulsive. When a sponsor comes along who is willing to pay for Fiona to paint, she jumps at the chance, not knowing he is a goblin planning to kill her! Declan must convince his fairy of what she really is so that she realizes the serious danger from the goblin threatening them. But it won’t be easy to convince the stubborn Fiona! Can he make her see the truth? Can he save her?
Visiting her newlywed friend Meg and husband Donal Foley is is surprised to find her other friend Colleen Connelly and her new boyfriend, Donal’s brother Sean also there. On the kitchen counter there is a rather ugly little stone gargoyle which she finds herself drawn to. When she leaves she asks to borrow the gargoyle and takes it to work with her. She falls asleep and is unaware of the stone figure turning to flesh. Declan looks at the sleeping Fiona tucks a blanket around her and leaves to meet his brothers.
After Declan is turned from stone back to his self he thinks that keeping his fairy safe will be a breeze. But Fiona Brady has no interest in being protected nor does she believe she is a fairy. But she will.This is another great story in the series that is a stand alone and has a HEA. Always look forward to reading more books by Chris Redding.
Short run read. This is the book for the third brother who was very young when the brothers were cursed. He was still in training at the time and still thinks he can do better than his brothers. I was happy to see that he wised up and didn’t get himself and his fairy killed. This was a very good book to read and shows that young people can get their stuff together when it matters most.
