The Celts did not succumb without a fight. Their Old Ways survived centuries of ruthless domain until another menace loomed: a tortured god worshiped in cold stone buildings. The sacred shores of ...more

I am part of the blog tour running for Celtic Fire with Xpresso Blog Tours. As part of the tour, I was sent a copy of the book for read and review. My overall star rating is 3.5 out of 5 stars. This is a Historical Paranormal Romance set in the Scottish Highlands during the time in history with the conflicts between the Celts and the Romans.

This story follows three characters: Rowen, Eochaid and Caddaric. Rowen and Caddaric have always been made in heaven but when the Lady of the Lake asks Rowen

I have never read a historical/paranormal romance before but Liz provided enough detail and description that I could easily follow along and understand the background. Celtic Fire was an engaging read and she created a cast of characters I couldn’t help but fall in love with.

The story captured my interest from the beginning, the characters were compelling and well developed, and the relationships were believable. Rowan and Eochaid were quite the pair! I loved her fire and feistiness and he exude

This book Has a very intriguing way of saying a story. But still it's nice read.
Don't let slow beginning make you stop! Later IT gets really well and its worth for sure reading IT!
We have 3 characters that we get to know from their POVs: Rowen a prisesses that is one of the last; Cadderic a previous lifes companion; Eoachid a worrior that has something in himself.
The story goupes around Rowen and Eoachid and its really enjoyable to get to know them, their reasons, past and what is going on on th

I don't usually read Historical/Paranormal books but this one caught my interest. It started out a little slow but then takes off. This is a very well written suspenseful read. I loved the authors clear descriptions of everything from religious ceremonies to the characters in this book. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is new to this genre. It was an interesting great read.
Sherry Westendorf
Very well written. It gets and keeps your attention right away which makes it a nice relaxing read with lots of excitement, fun and suspense. I recommend it. I was very pleased with the book. It has some twists and turns which make it interesting. I was given a review copy and voluntarily review it.

It was a good book, it deals with an ancient religion when a priestess prays the the ladyog the lake for everything that was bestowed on them and for guideness. To day if they did it they would be called witches. They were called the old ways not slot of people believed in it

Good book, good history, old religion

I really liked this book.. The characters are well thought out. The author did a great job. The only thing I did not like, Is usually when you read something that is-- like historical (?) they use the language used at that time.. This author did not do that at all except for a few words.

I laughed. I cried. I fell in love with reincarnation! Would have liked to see a little more suspense, but it was a great read.

What an interesting book. Abit slow to start but it really is good. It's about the old Celts religion .
Adrienne Swiatkowski
A very enjoyable storyline..This book has taught me some interesting things about the Goddess based religion too. It contained romance, humor and knowledge of Wicca. I really loved the pairing of Eochaid and Rowan, and the blossoming love between them.

This was an interesting and fast paced story. Definitely...a Good read! Looking forward to Book 2 and hoping to read more about the lives of The High Priestess and her beloved Warrior.

Each book of Liz Gavin’s I’ve read have been amazing and when I heard that she was going to be releasing Celtic Fire I was well excited. This book isn’t like any of her previous books, but I can tell you now that you’ll be drawn in by the historical romance story that takes place. Normally I don’t read anything that’s historical but I knew that with Liz writing it I had to try it as I have loved everything she has written to date. Now being honest I honestly have no clue when it comes to books b ...more

I typically don't go for this kind of book, the kind that takes place with one character in another realm. However, I have enjoyed other books by this author and jumped at the chance to be an Alpha reader for this one. I was drawn into the story and even decided to purchase a copy when it released in finished form. Although I feel bad for Caddaric, I was rooting for Rowen and Eochaid the whole time. I loved the character of Eochaid! I also loved how strong Rowen was for herself and those she lov ...more

I was fortunate to be an alpha reader for this story. Although I was frequently wrong with my guesses of where the plot was headed, I loved the story and its characters. It also offered a really interesting look at the Celts and their religion. Rowen and Eochaid were a great pair - with his strength and her fire.

This was a great story and I can't wait for the next one.

I've always had a thing for the Celts and so I was intrigued by this book. I loved Rowen and how strong she was, and she was a leader to people and respected by everyone. Eochaid was humble yet dominating, and he definitely enjoyed getting under Rowen's skin. Caddaric was an interesting side character that I think I would like to see more of. I loved the different viewpoints and the discussion of past lives and how it leads to the current story. It was fantastic and I can't wait to read the next ...more

Rowen is a High Priestess of an ancient religion in the highlands of Scotland. It is her responsibility to keep the villagers belief in the goddess strong, she looks after their health and wellbeing, trains apprentice priestesses and is well loved. She is also deeply in love with her soul mate, Caddaric, who is not part of this world but still in Avalon (their version of heaven), as High Priestess she is able to travel there in spirit to spend

I absolutely loved this book. Some great history mixed in with ancient folklore. Rowan and Eochaid were an interesting couple, even though they appeared to come from different backgrounds. This book kept me enthralled, I was there with them. The author brought to life the world of Avalon, and the small Celtic island the last bastion still worshipping the Goddess. Rowan is a High Priestess of the Goddess and has come back to the mortal world without h

The description of this book was promising. I love a book that embraces Avalon and ancient times in Scotland. I am an Arthurian legend nerd so I was excited.
Truth be told, I wasn’t in love with Rowen right away. I thought she was just being difficult to be difficult. She was good with her people but when it came to be open, I felt her a bit cold. Yes, she has a past but I felt like her interactions with the male characters seemed one dimensional. It wasn’t until I was over halfway through the bo

This is a historical fiction novel with paranormal elements. Celtic Fire follows the first person points of view of Rowen, Eochaid and Caddaric. This book is based in the Scottish highlands during the time when there was conflict between the Celts and the Romans. This was an easy and quick read for me and I did enjoy the plot. I just did not feel engrossed in the storyline. This is definitely a book for mature audiences as there are mature scenes through the story. I feel this would appeal to re ...more

Wow simply WOW. I am of Irish and Scottish decent. And know
there were Celts in my past as well. I picked up this book as I
enjoy those stories. Always drawn to them. This one is so well
written and the fact that she motioned the reincarnation that most
live out of the story about Celts. I was pleasantly surprised.

This is a story of love and rebirth and how Karma and reincarnation
gives us the chance to correct the sins of our pasts. This is the
