Fighting Mad

Sequel to Restless Spirits

Kathy Bryson brings back the mystical mayhem with her latest paranormal romance. As a huge fan of both Irish folklore and Shakespeare how could I not have been fascinated with this story plot? Even after reading the book prior to this I found myself caught up in Carla’s magical adventure and enjoyed witnessing this no nonsense mother dealing with things completely out of her realm. Almost every woman with a pulse understands the allure of a charming Irishman so it was no wonder that even Carla couldn’t resist although I give her high marks for trying. Murphy has a unyielding presence and while he is far from perfect he seems to be just what Carla and her daughters need in their lives. Carla is a woman I’d love to call friend, the fact that even when she does break down and cry she still comes across as more than capable of getting her crap in order and doing whatever it is that needs to be done. She’s fiercely protective of her daughters and all those she loves. I don’t want to give anything away but when she goes toe to toe with the one she feels is threatening her loved ones it is a pleasure to see her in action. If you are looking for a new twist on a centuries old story this is one for you.

Carla can’t believe it when her friends aren’t more sympathetic when she loses her job and totals her car and the one person who steps in to support her is Murphy the sexy local bartender. He is kind and charming and definitely has her attention. Even if he is some type of leprechaun, would getting involved with him be a good example to set for her two daughters? And if that isn’t enough of a dilemma she finds herself stuck in the middle of a war between the King and Queen of the Fairies.

Book Blurb for Fighting Mad

Laid off from her job at the bank, Carla turns to her friends for support only to find they’re more concerned about their jobs. The one person she can count on is local bartender Murphy, but what kind of example is that to set for her daughters? Having learned the hard way, Carla’s not depending on any man, even if he is cute, charming, very kind, and some kind of leprechaun?

Murphy is used to sneers. Clurichauns are the redheaded stepchildren of the leprechaun world and then there are the late-night throw-downs at his bar. What he wants, however, is to protect the dainty little mom who ogles him when she thinks no one’s looking. He knows she’s fighting overwhelming odds, but she’ll need more than bravery when the conflict between the King and Queen of the Fairies becomes outright civil war!
