For centiuries, great ritual fires were burned during the high festivals of the ancient Celtic world. And then the upstart Patrick lit his own in defiance of tradition . . .


Church historians and hagiographic scholars have claimed that St. Patrick, then a bishop ordained by the pontiff, was the center of a dramatic confrontation on the occasion of the Christian Easter in 433 AD.


The date was May...

Captive Heart [The Dawn of Ireland 3] (Select)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:35PM
Description: WARNING; The sexual situations in this book are unsuitable for readers under 18. It is rated "steamy" by the publisher; and, without using crude language, contains very specific descriptions of romantic male-female encounters. Captive Heart, the final novel in the Dawn of Ireland trilogy, sends Caylith and Liam into more danger than ever before. Caylith has discovered that a group of women are being held captive on a remote island off the far northern coast of ancient Ireland. The women are the latest in a steady stream of captives who are being bought and sold, a slave-trade masterminded by a member of their own church. As an adjunct to the captivity of the hapless women, Caylith herself is held in a kind of captivity as one of Liam's cousins, completely smitten with the beautiful redhead, begins to stalk her. This man Murdoch Mac Owen, moreover, may be the only one who can discover the remote island of the captive women. And Caylith may have a sinful price to pay for his help.
The Wakening Fire [The Dawn of ireland 2] (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:35PM
Description: WARNING; The sexual situations in this book are unsuitable for readers under 18. It is rated "steamy" by the publisher; and, without using crude language, contains very specific descriptions of romantic male-female encounters. The Wakening Fire is indeed all about fire--the fire of passion between Liam and Caylith O'Neill as they begin their married life still exploring their own hidden sexual secrets...the fire that burns in Owen Sweeney, the man who Caylith thought was her implacable enemy, but who has his own secrets that will change the history of northern Ireland itself...and the ritual fires set by the high king Leary and by charismatic Patrick as each vies for the hearts and souls of pagan Ireland. This novel finds Caylith and Liam on the track of a secret that has sent her old enemy Owen almost to the brink of insanity. It is a secret that will profoundly affect her, Liam, the high king and even the course of history.
Storm Maker [The Dawn of Ireland 1] (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:35PM
Description: WARNING; The sexual situations in this book are unsuitable for readers under 18. It is rated "steamy" by the publisher; and, without using crude language, contains very specific descriptions of romantic male-female encounters. Storm Maker can be described in some ways as a "coming of age" for its young heroine Caylith, who tries to understand the nature of love by leaving behind one sensuous man and falling into the arms of another. Being a friend of the priest named Patrick, she has followed him to ancient Ireland to lend treasure and arms, and there she meets the gorgeous clansman Liam. This novel tells of their struggle to stay chaste in the wake of Caylith's promise to Patrick to save herself for the marriage bed. Her sexual discovery is slow but sure, as she and Liam explore each other throughout the book. It also tells the story of the enigmatic Owen Sweeney, a brooding cripple who is said to have murdered his own wife...and who, in thie novel, abducts Liam as a hostage in exchange for his lost land. Storm Maker begins the three-book adventures that make up The Dawn of Ireland, a sweeping epic of passion and peril in a land full of clansmen, cattle barons, deceitful druids and many other bad-ass and likeable characters.
Fire & Silk (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:35PM
Description: WARNING; While the novel is rated "steamy" and not "erotic," it does contain specific scenes and language that may be considered objectionable to some readers. FIRE & SILK tells the tumultuous story of a woman-shunning bachelor Flann O'Conall and a headstrong virgin named Mariana. One night close to the home of his father the King of Tyrconnall in ancient Ireland, Flann reluctantly opens his rainproof blanket to a haughty and disdainful woman in silk...And when his fire meets her silk, a fire tears across northern Ireland, from Donegal north to Inishowen, then back to Flann's refuge in the mountains of the north. This novel explores the passions of two people committed to independence who find that life holds more than just the joys of living alone--if only they could admit it to each other.
Warrior, Ride Hard [The Iron Warrior 1] (Romance)
1 chapters   —   updated May 13, 2015 06:34PM
Description: WARNING; The novel itself, and a part of this excerpt, are rated "erotic," containing descriptions and/or language that will be considered objectionable by some readers. This novel is part 1 of The Iron Warrior series, a Manlove erotic romance, followed by WARRIOR, STAND TALL. The books are stand-alone and can be enjoyed either in tandem or separately. This first Warrior book tells the story of three men: Gristle, a hardened former Roman soldier who has sworn he will not love again... Tristus, a beautiful, sensitive man who fled to Gristle's arms ten years earlier and then disappeared ... and Wynn, a young trainer of Welsh mountain ponies who is smitten with the sensuous Gristle and follows him to Ireland. The stories of these three men entertwine until at last they all meet briefly on the sacred Hill of Tara, only to be torn apart again by the one Gristle calls "the bitch goddess Fortuna."
