A May Day Need Fire

Soon it will be May Day, which is the holiday the ancient Celts celebrated as Beltane. The need fire was the ritual bonfire which was a central part of the  Beltane festival. The words need and fire also conjure up
images of a hot romance so I thought it would make a perfect title 
for this box set of five Celtic romance novellas.

Timeless Voyage
Off the mist shrouded coast of Ireland,
a lady pirate, Anwen, captures the enemy,
a Roman, Titus Rufius Kaeso.
The Celtic warrior woman presses her
hard iron dagger against Kaeso’s throat,
but memories of fated lovers, druids and
sacrifice, stay her hand.
Kaeso is also captivated by dreams
of the woman he loved in a previous life,
the mirror image of Anwen. In this lifetime
they are foes, Roman and Celt. Can Anwen and
Kaeso steer their timeless voyage to a happy destiny or will they be robbed
of love once more?

Pendragon’s Obsession
Eigyr is the woman the gods meant for
King Uthyr. The lady who will bare his children
as foretold by the fiery dragon comet, but
there’s one problem…she’s marred to one
of his dukes. The sensuous powerful king
awakens Eigyr’s lust but she will not
break her wedding vows. Driven by a deep,
overpowering desire, Uthyr would do
anything to have but one night with Eigyr.
The king’s druid, Menw holds the answer
to Uthyr’s dilemma. Magic. But at what cost?

Moon Goddess Wife
From Welsh mythology springs the tale
of Rhiannon and Pwyll. Chief Pwyll's
life is changed forever the day Goddess
Rhiannon rides pass him on her magic
horse. Forbidden romance smolders
between the goddess and the chieftain.
With the use of an enchanted bag,
Rhiannon breaks free of an
unwanted betrothal. Happily, she weds
Pwyll, but a harrowing mystery tears
them apart. Will Pwyll's suspicion and duty as chieftain
prevail or will love win out?

A Fine Cauldron Of  Fish
It's summer on the Isle of Man and
Andrew is looking for hot girls and
good times. So when he meets the
dreamy and seductive Margaid,
he thinks he's hit the jackpot.
There are only a couple of minor
problems: Margaid lives in a cave
under the sea, is invisible, and thinks
that only Andrew's blood can save her
 from turning into a water horse!
But hey, whoever said love was perfect!?

Some Vampires Shimmy
6th in the Dancing Vampire series
Afric and Foomna, the last of the
dancing vampire sisters, shimmy
and strut their way into belly dancing
at a Scottish Steamapunk Con. It’s all
sizzle and steam when they get together
with a sexy rock guitarist and a hot looking
god at the con. Afric swore she’d never love
a human but Kade’s got her tied up in Celtic knots with the exotic
pleasures of his shibari rope. The War Goddess Morrigan commands
Afric to cut her ties with her human lover. Afric’s caught between
pleasing her goddess, her sister, and her man. What will it take for
Afric to follow her own heart and where will that path lead to, the
Earthly Realm or Underhill?
