If you’re looking for Irish-themed romance, you’ve come to the right place, below are all the books I’ve written with an Irish Mythological theme, or that have Irish heroes or heroines. I hope you enjoy them.
Synopsis (Which covers the synopses for the separate three books pictured below:
Bonded by Love…and destiny! Do you love immortals? Then come to the Bitter Thorn Grove, where magic lurks, ancient druids and sexy Celtic heroes roam, and true love blooms eternal that will determine the fate of the world.
Three full novels in the thrilling fantasy romance series, now combined in a boxed set. Over 900 pages!
Keeper of the Grove (Book 1):
Stacy Macken has one goal in mind: saving her renowned history center from greedy creditors. Losing it would be a catastrophe—one she doesn’t know how she’ll avoid.
Until Aaron Fielding arrives. To all human eyes, he is just like any man, but he reminds Stacy of one of the fae. He certainly enchants her like a fae lover would.
But Stacy suspects there is more to this sexy fellow, with his tales of the Tuatha dé Danann, and magical warriors from Celtic legend who protect humanity from a wicked enemy seeking their destruction. Does his appearance mean the end of the world imminent?
Can she, a studious woman more intent on history books with no training in or love of war, possibly have anything to offer when a long-prophesied druidic battle explodes around her?
Bitter Thorn Tribe (Book 2):
Destined to be a bride, if only the gods will let her…
Stacy Macken tries to acclimate herself to her training under Tuatha dé Danaan druids—as if she doesn’t have enough work in planning her wedding to her beloved guardian and fiancé Aaron. When Fomorii loyalists violate their treaty and seek revenge for their recent defeat, even Stacy’s druids are at a loss to explain the mayhem that ensues. Can Aaron and his brothers-in-arms stop it before Stacy and her family are caught in the crossfire?
Druid Defiance (Book 3):
As Steward, Stacy travels to her ancestral home in Ireland to wed. When she is granted access to the family’s sacred site, her presence opens a magical portal that brings her into a new version of the world. Does this mean the gods approve and her wedding can move forward or will the evil Balor object and end the world once and for all?
And the set includes the exclusive flash fiction story: ABOUT A WARRIOR!
Keeper of the Grove was inspired by the Megadeth song, Foreclosure of a Dream.
In these novels, I play around with Celtic Mythology. The hero of the novel is one of many nameless immortal warriors in the Tuatha dé Danann’s army. From them, I created the Harshad Warriors, a group of warriors who battle the evil god Balor for the fate of the world…. Tuatha dé Danann means “Peoples of the Goddess Danu”. And Balor, well, Balor leads the Formorians, and my characters? Not too fond of the lot of them, at all.
And the companion series:
For Druid Warrior Prince: ~~This book concerns a heretofore unknown group in the Stacy Macken’s family tree (see below) , and the harshad battle that took place on the original Irish family homestead in the year 513.~~
The synopsis for Druid Warrior Prince:
Gwenevieve Macken’s well-ordered world falls into chaos as encroaching interlopers scheme to possess both her and her land. Although she’s been trained to spot the signs of inhuman evil in men, the amassing armies take on guises she never expected.
When a foreign guardian presents himself as her only option for salvation, Gwenevieve must make a choice between her desires, and fulfilling the mythic fate to which she was born. A forced marriage to a Tuatha dé Danann warrior isn’t part of her plan.
And Druid Warrior’s Heart continues that family’s story and concerns Stacy’s ancestor Ruth, and the battle that took place on the original Irish family homestead in the year 1513.~~
The synopsis for Druid Warrior’s Heart:
As the latest in her family’s long line of Stewards, Ruth Macken awaits the arrival of a warrior sworn to the Tuatha dé Danaan, the Celtic gods her family has served since the beginning of time. For on that day, a magical battle will erupt. A war between druids and an evil that will decide the fate of mankind.
Isaac Connel knows the battle is imminent, and is ready to fight, once again but from the moment he sees Ruth flitting around the sacred ground, he’s captivated by her fiery charms and a need to protect her.
Despite Isaac’s assurances and the dreams that guide her, what can Ruth and her lover do to drive off this evil? Despite everything, will the world end at the hands of an evil god?
If you prefer true historical romance, then there are my Irish heroes of the Victorian era-set Camden Girls series:
The Camden Girls series concerns the Camden family, whose father runs one of the first subway systems in London circa 1879 and forward. And, all three heroines fall for dashing heroes of Irish-heritage of some ilk. The hero of the first book in the series (Courting the Stationmaster’s Daughter) even fancies himself bred from Irish (and Scottish) druids! *swoons*
The synopsis for Courting the Stationmaster’s Daughter:
After Honorine Camden is jilted, leaving her stunned and sparking a scandal in her tiny London borough of Wallflower, she’s devastated. But when she overhears her father, the stationmaster, talking about arranging a party for their newly-minted underground railway station, she volunteers to help. Although she’s intrigued with the handsome Irish assistant stationmaster, Shane MacIntyre, she never expects to fall head-over-heels in love with him. Unfortunately, one tragic accident might derail everything.
The synopsis for Engaging the Heiress:
Edwin Hetherington needs a fiancée, not a wife.
Years ago, his Irish family lost everything to an unscrupulous landowner–including the family title. Now, the elderly scalawag offers to make amends if Edwin weds Miss Jera Camden. As far as Jera is concerned, so long as she manages to avoid marriage to a certain Scotsman, the bluestocking is delighted to pose as Edwin’s blushing bride-to-be. Can Edwin and Jera dupe the old codger into honoring his promise before the wedding date arrives … or will their clever scheme result in wedded disaster?
And lastly, the synopsis for Miss Camden Kissed the Duke:
Fresh on the heels of romantic heartbreak, Miss Isabelle Camden agrees to become companion for the sister of a busy, arrogant duke. She plans to keep her distance, but when a snowstorm strands them outside London for days, an unexpected dare sets propriety at naught…and sends her into the duke’s arms.
(Isabelle’s hero has a complicated history: He was born in Ireland and moved to America as a child, then went back to Ireland as a young adult before moving to Britain.)
And, one more:
Like the hero of Courting the Stationmaster’s Daughter (above), the family of the hero of House of Dark Envy emigrated from Ireland to Britain during the Great Famine. He is something of a cross between the magical heroes of the Stewards War and Celtic Stewards Chronicles, and the hardworking gentlemen of Camden Girls. 🙂
House of Dark Envy synopsis:
Surely, lightning can’t strike twice…
1888: When Sarahjane attends Lady Morville’s costume party, she never expects to learn her old beau Felix Gryffith is under the illustrious woman’s patronage and stands on the cusp of making a world-changing discovery. Felix, whose lies disgraced her in the eyes of the London elite by labeling her a flirt.
Felix’s love for Sarahjane has never wavered, despite the scandal that forced them apart. He’s desperate to tell her the truth, if he can convince her to listen.
Fate lurked in the shadows that night, years ago. Has it returned to grant Sarahjane and Felix their wishes, or terrorize them?
I hope you’ll like them! And, have a good St. Patrick’s Day. And look out for those pesky leprechauns!
