I'm so excited, I'm vibrating in my chair!  It's Cover & Blurb Reveal time!!  
For the past two years, my friend and co-author Saffron Hart and I have been writing the story of a young deacon falling in love with the gargoyle who looms on the top of his church.

It's been an amazing journey bringing this story to life. Writing with a partner requires patience, the ability to compromise, and a willingness to trust someone else with a piece of your heart. I'm not gonna lie. It wasn't easy.

Saffron and I have two very different styles of writing. She is more of a pantser. She uses bullet point type sentences for her plot points and then discovers the rest of the story as she writes. I'm a super hardcore plotter. I need to figure it all out ahead of time and have a detailed scene list before I start writing. Merging those two! The struggle was real, y'all. But we did it and we learned from each other, and we're both stronger writers now because of it.

Today I'm sharing with you the cover and blurb for book 1 of the Cloth & Stone trilogy. It's the beginning of two journeys: Saffron's & mine and Gideon's & Cordero's. I hope you'll join us on our paranormal adventure in Cleveland, Ohio. May you come to love our boys as much as we do.  <3 

And now, without further ado, Saffron and I are so very proud to announce...

Taking His Confession

The Cloth & Stone Trilogy - Book 1

From PJ Friel & Saffron Hart

Can a man of the cloth and a creature of stone save a troubled teen caught in the crosshairs of a ruthless drug lord?

Gideon Fawkes longs to meet the handsome young deacon who teaches at St. Anthony’s Boys Academy. There’s just one problem. Gideon is a gargoyle, and he’s pretty sure Deacon Cruz only dates humans.  

Cordero Cruz knows a lot about forgiveness. It’s the cornerstone of his calling. Too bad he can never offer it to himself. Because of him, people died, and there’s no redemption for that kind of mistake.  

But a lack of humanity and a heart filled with guilt are nothing compared to a young man’s life. When a merciless criminal threatens Cordero and one of his students, Gideon will have to risk more than his stony hide to protect them. Cordero must do the unthinkable to prove he’s deserving of the gargoyle turned guardian angel. But when their road to hell is paved with good intentions, they must learn only trust and redemption can pave the way for love.

I am a total Ilona Andrews fangirl. The Edge, Kate Daniels, Innkeeper Chronicles. All their series are top-notch and the Hidden Legacy series is no exception. Emerald Blaze is book 5 of that series and it's even better than the last. I wasn't sure that I would like Catalina as well as Nevada (heroine of the first three books), but she's proven to be an amazing character. If you haven't read this book yet, get to it!

A Twist of Wyrd

His secrets will destroy their love. Her secrets will get them killed.

Everybody keeps secrets, but Bryn can steal them with a single touch. Her own, though, are locked up tight. If she doesn't play hard to get, she could wind up dead. So, trusting some guy enough to fall in love with him? Impossible.
Trygg is a berserker. He tracks, he kills, and he never forgets a scent, especially hers. One whiff of Bryn causes a split in his psyche no doctor can fix. One side of him wants her dead. The other would kill to keep her safe. So, trusting himself enough to fall in love with her? Never.

When they're thrown together to investigate a brutal murder, they can't deny their desires. The impossible will happen. Never will come. There's not enough magic in the world to stop it.
