Part of the Emerald Isles Fantasies series
Tullamore Castle Ireland is an enchanted place where the unexpected happens. Phantom lovers materialize in haunted beds and a lonely griffin patrols the ramparts waiting to reclaim its mate. And that’s just the beginning.
For the adventure of a lifetime Maeve de’Burgo visits Tullamore to study genealogy. Through a magical act and time travel she becomes embroiled in a dangerous medieval romance and the unfinished life of her ancestor. Maeve gets thrown back in time to be captured, ravished and cherished as a war chief’s prize.
Ronan O’Griofa is a griffin-shifter, the most loyal of creatures. He’s been trapped in limbo as the avenging guardian of Tullamore since 1332 AD and longs to be free. When the soul of his wife returns to the castle he’s granted the privilege of becoming a man for one day to be her lover, win her heart and remind Maeve of a bond strong enough to last an eternity.
About the Author:
I’m an artist, an author, mother and wife. I write for Ellora’s Cave, Loose Id Publishing and a couple new publishers to be announced soon. I try to bring a touch of the mystical and a big sense of adventure to everything I write because I believe there’s a bold, kick-ass heroine inside all of us who wants to take a wild ride with a strong worthy hero.
I really loved this book. A time travel, mystical romance without the usual supernatural creatures – utter amazing fantasy! The story was addictive and it was so refreshing to have a normal woman as the lead. I’m not sure where the author is from, but she manages to evoke a strong Celtic feel to the book and doesn’t manage to use British stereotypes that usually end up insulting.
I can’t fault the writing, the whole book flowed really well, and quite frankly I came to the end all too soon. I’m glad to find that its part of a series, so the magic hasn’t ended.
The sex wasn’t sleazy or random and fitted into the story seamlessly – something that sets apart a good romance from straight erotica.
The front cover captures the essence of the story and you can’t beat a hunky, half naked guy to stare at!
I’d really recommend this to anyone wanting a romantic fantasy by their bedside – 5 out 5 stars!
