Synopsis:

THE PRESENT

Successful matchmaker Brianagh O’Rourke believes in happily-ever-afters…just not her own. She’s convinced passion only exists in her dreams. When she reluctantly accepts a marriage proposal, Bri decides she needs a vacation―but she didn’t expect it to be in 13th century Ireland.

THE PAST

Laird Nioclas MacWilliam just wants peace for his clan. The time for him to marry has come, and after waiting years for his ally to present their daughter, he’s agreed to marry another. But on the eve of his nuptials, a daring rescue brings his missing betrothed right into his arms.

And she does not want to be there.

THE FUTURE

Brianagh has to return to the future. Nioclas has to marry. He offers a solution for the both of them: She marries him and stays for three months, and they work together to convince his clan they are a love match. In return, he vows to safely return her home. But as the days turn to weeks, they both begin to see what a happily-ever-after could be. And when the time comes, does Brianagh return to the life she’s built, or does she remain in the past for a chance at true love?

About the Author:Archer

Archer Kay Leah was raised in Ontario, Canada, growing up in a port town at a time when it was starting to become more diverse, both visibly and vocally. Combined with the variety of interests found in Archer’s family and the never-ending need to be creative, it has been this diversity that has inspired Archer’s love of toying with characters and their relationships, exploring new experiences and crazy situations.

Archer started writing stories at age six and became “that kid” with their nose in the books and a pen in their hand, pursuing the challenges of writing novels at age thirteen and conquering the dread of poetry at fifteen. Archer most enjoys writing speculative fiction and is engaged in a very particular love affair with fantasy, especially when it is dark and emotionally charged.

When not reading and writing for work or play, Archer is a geek who has too many hobbies, keeping busy with other creative endeavors, a music addiction, and whatever else comes along, especially if it is in technological form. Archer lives in London, Ontario with a same-sex partner and their cat.

Review of Dancing to an Irish Reel by Claire Fullerton

IrishSynopsis:

On sabbatical from her job in the LA record business, twenty five year old Hailey Crossan takes a trip to Ireland for the vacation of a lifetime. What she finds is a job offer too good to turn down.

But her new life in Ireland comes with one major complication—Liam Hennessey. He’s a famous Irish musician whose entire live has revolved around performing. And Hailey falls in love with him. Because Liam’s not so sure love can fit into his life, he’s afraid to come closer, but neither can he bring himself to go away.

And so begins Hailey’s journey to a colorful land that changes her life, unites her with friends more colorful than the Irish landscape, and teaches her more about love than she’s ever known before.

My Review: Three Heart Rating

 

When I first cracked open this book, I was instantly hit with the remarkable beauty of Claire’s writing. She is capable of recreating the stunning world of Ireland, whether it is the people that reside there or the land itself. Her words are almost poetry; an ode to the world of Ireland.

Hailey is a woman who instantly falls in love with the lifestyle in Ireland, and abandons her successful career in LA. She immerses herself into the musical scene, giving hope to the unknown artists who just want to make a name for themselves.

Liam is a very charming musician in a family band. They are really popular to the pub scene, doing shows all over and content with their small lifestyle. And he turns out to be more than Hailey bargained for.

I don’t want to give too much of the story away, because I feel that this is a story that needs to be experienced by the reader. It’s magical.

So why the three stars, you may be asking. I had a very difficult time connecting with Liam and Hailey. Where the story is extremely descriptive and overwhelming with a sense of adventure, I felt that the romance between Liam and Hailey was a bit…dialed down. For a novel that contains such beauty, I imagined their connection to be a bit more relatable. It could just have been me, but their chemistry definitely could have been much more.

This is a book that makes you want to get up out of your computer chair, or couch, or wherever your ‘reading spot’ is, and find that adventure of your lifetime. To experience a world beyond your understanding, and people watch the citizens residing there.Signature

Sweet Ache by K. Bromberg| It’s Finally Live! ~*Epic Giveaway*~

sweet ache it's live

 

To say that I am excited about this book is an understatement. Anyone who knows me, knows that I absolutely adore all of K. Bromberg’s novels. While this is somewhat related to her popular Driven Series, it does not need to be read with it. This is a complete standalone novel, and one that definitely needs to be read.

The New York Times bestselling author of Slow Burn turns up the heat when a sexy bet turns into so much more…. Continue reading
