Paranormal Romance
Lost in a sea of pain and memories, the hero has secluded himself deep in the wilderness. He's escaped his enslavement but the scars run deep. He also mourns the death of his wife and unborn child as well as the loss of his culture to the Roman invaders. Set upon by a vision of blood once again, he awakens to discover a near frozen woman lying in the snow before him. Even knowing she is Roman and therefore his enemy, he can't let her die, not when it's in his power to save her. He barely has the ...more

With The Grail King, Joy Nash once again writes a beautiful story of ancient Scotland and the people who populate this enchanted, mystical land.

In this first story in the Druids of Avalon series, readers again meet Owein, younger brother of Rhiannon, the heroine of Celtic Fire. Now he is all grown up, and about to encounter his own destiny…

Owein is blessed, or cursed, depending on how you look at it, with the abilities of a Seer. His latest vision is of a youn

If you are a fan of legends of the Holy Grail and also of Celtic lore, then you will undoubtedly enjoy this book. The hero of The Grail King was first introduced in Ms. Nash's previous novel, Celtic Fire, as a young man. For those of you that have read that book, you will enjoy seeing Owein's return in this novel. If you haven't read Celtic Fire, not to worry, this is a stand alone book and you will get to know (and love) Owein quite well throughout the course of this tale. The author begins our ...more

Oh my, I was looking for some historical fiction, and instead, I stumbled into an Iron Age bodice-ripper.

He's a savage, barbarian holy-man. Young, strong, skilled, and yet still innocent enough to blush at the sight of a bared thigh.

She's a beautiful, even younger, Roman aristocrat. Proud, spoiled, used to the good things in life, she's still willing to bat her eyelashes to get what she wants.

First thing he did when he met her is take off all her clothes, so at least got to see her ya-yas. I'll

I found this a very satisfying paranormal historical fantasy. I enjoyed it a lot. Ms. Nash hooks the readers in about 5 pages and doesn't stop delivering awesome-ness at all. I immediately went and ordered the first book in this series, Celtic Fire, which I believe features Owein's sister, but that is my guess, I haven't looked into it more. I adored Owein, he is hot, powerful, kind, and a deeply scared man who didn't let the bad in his world change him when it could have most people.

I love the

I judged this book in a published-author contest a few years' ago (have my autographed copy!) and this is now one of my favorite books IN LIFE! Reluctant Druidic Celtic hero, beautiful runaway Roman heroine, the mystical Avalon. GREAT conflict. Wonderful secondary characters. I love how well-fleshed-out the characters are - there is no black and white, all manners of shades of gray. hard choices and true consequences. The power of a compromise.

READ THIS BOOK! I recommend it to everyone!

Excellent reading

The characters personalities come to life on the pages of Joy Nash's tale of magic and love. I felt like I was or had been there.
While the writing was exciting and vivid, Kindle had quite a few misspellings. The story far outweighed the misspelled words. Highly recommended, but I'd read Celtic Fire first. Both books can stand alone, but I knew more of the history by reading Celtic Fire first.

Fun summer read

This book was much better than the first in the series. The plot and dialogue moved at a quick pace and the descriptive passages made it feel as if you were truly in the action.

This was more entertaining than I expected. I can't wait for Valgus to show up in the next book. I want a Cormac origin story.
