Can their relationship survive the journey to redemption or will their penance be the end of their love?

Deep in their fight to protect the people of Cleveland from Dane Stevens’ criminal empire, Cordero and Gideon are convinced their cause is just.

Until Cordero sees the human cost of their crusade—a failed bust that nearly kills the target and a young girl whose life has been thrown into chaos.

Gideon sees Cordero’s change of heart as a threat, not just to their relationship, but to the chance at redemption for his own past.

As the fight against Stevens turns into an all-out war, Gideon and Cordero find themselves on opposite sides, and their fledgling love gets caught between what is right and what is just.

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.
