The Emerald Isle Trilogy Is Finally Complete!

I cannot believe this day has finally arrived. For so long, I have waited for the completion of this series and I know my fans have too. This month I can say, with great joy, that no one needs to wait any longer. The much anticipated third book, which brings the first two full circle, has been released. Hurry, get your copies today!

Did I mention a completed trilogy makes a great Christmas present?

The Fall of Rain
By Renee Vincent

Now available at: Amazon | KindleNookAll Romance EBooks | SmashwordsTurquoise Morning Press | Book Strand

Leif Dæganssen, an archeologist from Norway, is determined to trace back his Scandinavian roots as far as the Dark Ages and find proof of their existence on the Emerald Isle. After several years of living off the west coast of Ireland, he finally uncovers an ancient artifact—an intricately decorated chest with pagan carvings—buried beneath the very porch of his coastal cottage. Knowing it only confirms the presence of a glorified Norse-influenced settlement on Inis Mór, he’s determined to establish a link between himself and those who once inhabited the rugged isle.

For as long as she can remember, Lorraine O’Connor has had dreams of a Norse warrior kissing her. And even though she’s never fully understood the reason for her vivid subconscious imagination, she welcomes the meaningless and wanton pleasure of being in a Viking’s protective embrace—until the day she meets that brazen Northman on an impulsive vacation trip to Ireland.

Though blindsided by the relevance of her dreams and the strange familiarity of the man within them, Lorraine can’t help but feel a deep-seated intimacy toward Leif. And the more she gets to know him, the more she’s convinced they’ve shared a life together in a time long forgotten.

Are the clues to their ancestral past hidden within the contents of the chest or buried deep within their hearts?

About The Author:
I am an author with a passionate interest in Irish and Norse history. I live in the rolling hills of Kentucky with my husband and two children on a beautiful secluded farm of horses and hay fields.

When I am not writing, I love to spend my time on the back of a horse, whether with my family or with my friends. There is nothing like feeling the sunlight on your face, the wind in your hair, and the power of the animal beneath you as you enjoy the beautiful scenery. Seeing the world from a saddle is, by far, the best view and the best therapy for a heavy heart or a troubled mind. My therapist's name, or my horse's, rather, is "Statues Suddenly Lucky", a full-blooded Tennessee Walker, and of course, he goes by the name of Lucky for short.

I am a sucker for a good cup of coffee (lots of cream and sugar...and whipped cream if I can get my hands on it), great conversation, and a lilting Irish accent. I love to read and I can't resist watching great epic historical movies.

Sorry, wee bit of messed up spelling in my last post!

You know Renee, when I was reading the book and saw the part about the coffee I had to burst out laughing.

I won't say what the scene is but it was one of my favorites. Totally romantic and SO Renee.

Good luck to the winner, trust me you are in for a delightful treat.

Renee Vincent said...

Thanks Mare!!! (((Hugs))) to you!

Lizzie, now you have me curious....is it the coffee scene with Leif and Kristoff?

Sarah J. McNeal said...

I know the third book will be even better than the first two and that's saying something.
All the best to you, Renee. Fall of Rain is going to be a sensational read.

Lizzie Walker said...

Haha! No not that one but I did love it a lot, It was hilarious on Kristoff's part.

NOOOoooo. The ROMANTIC ONE silly! Well it was romantic that he was making her coffee period but you know when he took her to...

Oh I am not going to say because it will reveal too much! UGH! Let's just say, the sunset was beautiful ;-) I felt like I was there.

Renee Vincent said...

Reading this --> You know Renee, when I was reading the book and saw the part about the coffee I had to burst out laughing. I thought you were talking about a scene that contained some humor, Lizzie. So do you always burst out laughing at romantic scenes? haha

Renee Vincent said...

Thanks you so much Sarah McNeal. I do hope you will pick it up someday so you can complete the series. And if you ever do....you must tell me what you thought.

Thank you so much visiting with me!

Sarah Hoss said...

I hope you have great success with these books. You are a wonderful writer and if anyone hasn't read Silent Partner, I highly suggest that one too!!!!
