This is the first Lyn Armstrong book I've read and I liked it a lot given the 5-star rating. I have to admit there's one turning point why I gave it such a high rating and it might seem to shallow to some but I stand by my thoughts.

First of all, I liked the historical concept of witches coupled with erotica. For a short story, one could find a short M/M, F/M/M and F/F interludes. I especially enjoyed the F/F encounter even though it's like rape because Ms Armstrong's writing was very stylish and

The Last Celtic Witch by Lyn Armstrong is delightfully delicious from beginning to end. Very erotic, this story is not for younger teens.

Adela MacAye is a witch with a mission. After seeing the persecution of her family and hearing of the witch hunt is in full frenzy, Adela is determined not to let the MacAye witch blood line disappear. The exact same dream being played over and over again with increasing urgency sets Adela off on a journey plagued with danger.

Laird Phillip Roberts is every woma

Young Adele MacAye has seen her own death, she is the last Celtic Witch and she does not that legacy to end with her. That would end all the good magic in the world, and lead the path for darkness. So she does what any good witch would do, she created a fertility spell and lets that lead her to the man who can sire a child.

Laird Phillip Roberts is a warrior and lives a rough life fighting a bloody battle against a neighbouring clan. One way to end this would be to marry and make an alliance. But

Hace ya unos años que tenía pendiente esta novela corta. Me atrajo por el título, no voy a mentir. La sinopsis es atractiva, pero ahora que la releo, es bastante engañosa y lo vende como algo mejor y más oscuro de lo que es. Hay cosas que dice la sinopsis que en el libro ni se mencionan.
Mas o menos la mitad del libro son escenas de sexo y en el resto de las páginas la autora recuerda, como con desgano, que había una historia para contar.

Quiero ser clara: la idea del argumento es buena, el proble

The Last Celtic Witch is an erotic-paranormal-historical about a beautiful reclusive witch named Adela who has a vision of her own death. Being that she is the last of her kind, Adela decides she must produce a child before she is killed. With the help of a fertility spell, Adela is led to the man who is to be the child's father... the handsome Laird Phillip.

I will stop here as to not give any more of the story away.

The Last Celtic Witch is a book about hope, love, passion and magic. It gets m

Terrible. Ridiculous.
Jul 07, 2011 Lyn rated it really liked it
I love historical romances, especially around the 18th centruy. Although they can be very tedious at times with too much info, which in my opinion can slow down the story and lose the reader's focus. This plot was well thought out. I enjoyed the storyline and the build of the characters. Just enough info to keep you interested and the romance was hot! I am anxious to read the next book in the series. I hope it is a little longer than this one though.

Cute fun short read. Adela sees her upcoming death and decided not to die a virgin and without a child. So she set a spell to find a guy to help her. Only to find out later when no baby came and she's called to his castle as a witch that he is Laird Phillip Roberts ruler of their lands. Add that an evil witch who wishes Adela dead and you have a great story of the Last Celtic Witch.

An Romantica type read, so be sure you are old enough, ha! Otherwise, not the best i've read, but an easy read anyway. I will try the second book to see if it doesn't pick up.

Not a bad quick read. I would read the rest of this series, but I have other series I want to complete first. This was just taking a break, a thirst for something NEW.
I loved the story, but felt like I was reading an outline to a plot more than anything else. I hope the rest of the series is more fleshed out in its writing.

I felt like some parts of the book (like the falling in love part) were rushed and the story suffered from a lack of editing.
