About the Author

Rory Ni Coileain majored in creative writing, back when Respectable Colleges didn’t offer such a major, so she designed it herself – being careful to ensure that she never had to take a class before nine in the morning or take a Hemingway survey course. She graduated Phi Beta Kappa at the age of nineteen, sent off her first short story to an anthology being assembled by an author she idolized, got shot down in flames, and found other things to do, such as nightclub singing, for the next thirty years or so, until her Fae started whispering to her. Now she’s a lawyer, a legal editor, an Irish dance teacher, and the mother of a teenaged son, and amanuensis to a host of Fae who are all anxious to tell their stories.

I wish there were 10 stars to give. After 9 hours of continuous reading, I hated for the book to end. I rank this book among the best I have read in the m/m genre. The combining of two halves of one soul, one half residing in Kevin, a lawyer in the real world and the other half in Tiernan,a Fae. Their meeting and instant attraction is a puzzlement to both, but an attraction neither of them can deny. The emotions of both men are ever present throughout the story and make the characters real and endearing. The path to love is not easy for Kevin and Tiernan. Where would a story be without an evil interloper both in the Fae realm and in the realm of the real world. As in life, our struggles often bring us closer to the ones we love. Interesting twists and turns take the reader on an addictive ride as our characters come together. In my humble opinion, HARD AS STONE is an absolute MUST READ. I guarantee that you will not be disappointed. 5 stars and a keg of honey for you, Rory Ni Coileain.

Rory Ni Coileain has done it again. First with her story in Evernight 2 (Evernight Vol.2)and now here in Hard As Stone. If there was a way I could have given this novel more than five stars, I would. This book is an intensely gripping, exquisitely worded and immensely gratifying experience and I would recommend it to anyone that reads paranormal romance and/or urban fantasy.

I was going to wait on my review of this E-Book till I found the right words to truly express my overwhelming experience with this story. I am not a writer nor am I good with my words and I did not want to write something that would be taken wrong, or insult the talents of the Author.
So First, I have to say; I don't normally pick or read M/M stories. I am, however, an avid reader of paranormal Romance or just Romance in general. *blushing* Ok. Ok. With a nice side dish of Erotica. *wink*
When I read this E-Book I feel in LOVE with the main Characters right away. It surprised me that I couldn't put my kindle down while I was reading this story. The more I read the more I wanted to know how it would turn out. The sex and romance in this book it not paint by the numbers as most romance stories tend to be. This was tastefully done and very HOT! I truly couldn't put it down.
Ms. Rory Ni Coileain's story was intelligently written. The Characters Pop out from the page and bring you into their world. You can hear the music and feel it pumping through your blood in the club scenes. You feel the pain of the sexy Fae, and smell the fettered decayed breath of the villain. You feel the pain, love and loss of each emotion of each character in this story.
Dear Ms. Rory Ni Coileain, you have made a fan out of me! I hope there will be more stories from you. I can't wait to see what your talents produce next.

I loved this story. The world was rich and well written. This story was one of the best new take on Fae I've read in a long time. You won't regret reading this book, it's hot and full of action. Kevin was perfect for the brooding and flawed(in his own mind) Tiernan, I fell in love with them both. The magick only made this story better.

this is the first book in the soulshares series and introduces you nicely to the concepts of the Fae, being a soulshare and the evil that awaits all those that are soulshares and especially the fae.

Ms. NiCoileain wraps so much up in a nice erotic package with her sublime descriptive writing that tantalizes you and sparks the imagination to run wild and free in this first book about Tiernan and Kevin.

Tiernan is a royal Fae with a serious attitude. Also a Fae with guilt and regret about who he is and what he has done in his past to be put in the human world. Even with the attitude though he is hot as sin and a fun character to read about as he wars with himself over his feeling for Kevin and the idea of a soulshare and what it means to him.

Kevin is a lawyer who is kind and ambitious but not hungry. The desire to succeed and hunger is not there. It’s as if he is missing that in his soul and in fact he is. Where he got the compassion soul Tiernan got the attitude and drive and hunger part of the soul. This is part of what it means to be a soulshare. Two souls that make them complete once they are bonded. They become protective of each other and shield each other from others and harm. Kevin’s and Tiernan’s though wasn’t a easy one.

tiernan fought it tooth and nail. That is until Kevin is in danger of losing himself to the Marhfach. Kevin the sweetest guy imaginable and one that will have you wonder how Tiernan ended up with such a incredible guy is being pulled in different directions by this evil incarnate that has nefarious plans. Tiernan fights for Kevin and in the process realizes he loves him. A love so pure and feral it will have you go awwww…..

I always thought the Fae were little tiny things with wings, then Tiernan came along. This book is filled with adventure, hot men with tattoes, a paranormal world that is new and interesting, hot men, a sexy lawyer (Is there such a thing) bad guys, and did I mention hot males? The only thing I hated about the book was that it ended. I look forward to reading more from this author, she never disappoints.
