At an American museum, surrounded by Auguste Rodin’s bronze statues, a Scottish Fae beauty is at a crossroads. Now that Gwendolyn’s friends are engaged, and the demon they fought vanquished, should she return home? After committing a terrible act, she could not explain to her cousin why she had appeared on his doorstep
Alexander awoke in darkness inside a bronze statue, remembering how the green of Scotland’s Culloden field had turned red with blood that day in 1746. Had he died before awakening nude and sightless in front of strangers in present-day Raleigh, North Carolina? The mystery of how was overshadowed by why. Told that another warrior awoke when a demon threatened to take over the world, had a second demon escaped Hell? When the demon appears and demands Gwen join him, Alex must use all his new skills, weapons, and Heaven-sent powers to keep her and the world safe.
Multi-published and award-winning author, Nancy Lee Badger, and fellow Soul Mate Publishing author, presents a paranormal romance set in North Carolina filled with sights, sounds, a fabulous art museum, horses, sword fights, and a demon bent on capturing the Fae who murdered him. Did I mention the Samoyed Hellhound? A love of art, especially the bronze sculptures by the French master, August Rodin, helped give her ideas that brought this story to life. This is a full-length book, the second book in her Warriors in Bronze novels to be followed by Heaven-sent Flam
Eager to find the demon, vanquish it, then spend some quality time with Gwen, Alex jumped up and over the counter and headed for the glass doors. He assumed Gwen would follow him, and prayed Sam stayed elsewhere.
Beyond the museum’s glass doors, what waited was a huge white beast with a mouthful of teeth and a throaty growl.
“We should go outside, but wait for me,” Alex heard Gwen call to him, as she made her way out the office door. She joined him by the entrance, but he swept an arm out to keep her back, making her stop in her tracks. He stood perfectly still with his back to her, his feet apart, and his staff at the ready.
“Did you just growl?” she whispered.
He did not move, nor did he answer her. A thin plate of clear fragile-looking glass stood between them and a huge snarling beast of a dog. “I believe yer beastie has decided to join us,” he whispered.
She suddenly shoved past him. “Where is the demon-fighting Hellhound?”
“He acts like he wants to eat me.”
“Don’t be silly, Alex. I was worried about him. If anything happens to that dog, Kenzie will have my head!”
The image of a headless Gwendolyn turned his stomach. As he watched, the beast spun and leaped high in the air, turned, and ran off. “We should wait inside where it is safe.”
“Go ahead and wait, but Ivor is on to something.” Gwen pushed open the huge doors and chased the beast as it headed toward the wooded area. When they disappeared among the trees, Alex willed his feet to move, and he ran.
