Paranormal Romance

A woman lost in a nightmare

Shealy O'Leary thought the ancient Book of Fennore a myth until she and her father are sucked into the past--and into the cursed no-man's land called Fennore. There Shealy learns that she has a rare power that their enemy seeks. Aided by the dangerous and compelling warrior, Tiarnan, Shealy must find her father and learn how to wield her gift to save those she loves or die in this waking nightmare...

A man desperate to regain his honor

After failing both his land and people, Tiarnan was damned to spend eternity in the black heart of Fennore. His only hope comes in the shape of a beautiful, frightened woman from the future. For she possesses a gift she is unaware of. A gift with the power to save …or destroy them all.

A desire that drives their destiny

Together, Shealy and Tiarnan begin their perilous quest—a mission that draws them closer and closer together. And as the odds against them mount, so does their passion. The intensity of their bond electrifies the couple, their love powering Shealy’s gift and Tiarnan’s strength. But their newfound connection threatens to ruin them both—and bring to life a long ago prophecy of devastation and betrayal…

Yes, definitely an exciting excerpt! The book sounds great!

You always have the yummiest covers! Good luck and happy writing!
Tracie Travis 10:40am April 6, 2011)

Oh my! I don't think I would like to his enemy!!!!! Great excerpt....Can't wait to read it!
Pat Gamberi 10:59am April 6, 2011)

Time travel has always been a favorite concept for me. The old movie "The Time Machine" with Rod Taylor is one of my favorites.
Sandy Fielder 11:36am April 6, 2011)

I love Celtic legend and myth! One of my favorite is about Tuatha de Danaan and their battle with Formori.. Then I always want to know about Fionn mac Cumhaill, one of the warrior in Irish legend :)
Renanda P 11:57am April 6, 2011)

I love legends, histroy, magic, faith, loyalty, and love. They make the best reads from any book. This book sounds to be and looks to be a great read. I can't wait to read it.
Anthonia Sharp 12:17pm April 6, 2011)

I can't wait to read this book!
Minna Puustinen 12:27pm April 6, 2011)

My favorite legend is that of Boadecia. I love stories about
warrior women, especially if they are based on truth.
Tanja Haack 12:30pm April 6, 2011)

My mind is blank! But do love Celtic warriors.
Marjorie Carmony 12:48pm April 6, 2011)

Great excerpt, love the cover! Can't wait to read this book.
Jean Patton 12:55pm April 6, 2011)

Time travel and a brawny warrior, that covers my basic reading requirements.
Heather Pearson 1:15pm April 6, 2011)

I have read alot about Irish Myths and Legends, but sadly my mind is a blank... enjoyed the excerpt, have not had the pleasure of reading your books yet, but I am looking forward to changing that!
Colleen Conklin 1:29pm April 6, 2011)

I've always enjoyed time travel and romance together!
Diane Sadler 1:29pm April 6, 2011)

I have been waiting to read this series for a long time next week I am going to start it. I can not think of any legends but I too like a great Celtic warrior.
Annetta Stolpmann 1:40pm April 6, 2011)

Mine involve the Tuatha Dé Danann. The cover is absolutely wonderful.
Maude Allen 1:55pm April 6, 2011)

I really enjoyed the excerpt, but when I got here, I didn't expect to get that type of question. I've never read any Celtic books before. It's a new genre for me, unfortunately. I hope you don't hold that against me. If we were to talk by e-mail, you would wonder how I could pick up a book to read at all. I love to read, but my personal life is full with obligations which leave little time to read, so I have my list, including this one on it. I hope to still be considered for the contest.
Peggy Roberson 2:02pm April 6, 2011)

I can't wait to read the story of Shealy and Tiarnan. I loved Haunting Warrior and Haunting Beauty so I know Haunting Desire will be equally compelling. Thanks for the great series.
Robin McKay 2:29pm April 6, 2011)

I really don't know any Celtic legends. Hope I can still enter. Never really thought about it before. Anyways, it sounds like an awesome book. I love historical books.
Vicki Hancock 2:35pm April 6, 2011)

The Scandinavian equivalent of "Riastradh" is the "Berserker," one who goes mad in the heat of battle.

My favourite Celtic legends? Selkies, the lore of the Highlands and Islands, the Tuatha Dé Danann, and the like.


Lynn Rettig 2:57pm April 6, 2011)

Sounds very interesting! Can't wait to read it! I have always loved stories about legends and myths, so this will be a good one!
Beth Foster 3:45pm April 6, 2011)

just the cover alone makes me want to pick it up and read it..
Leisa Prater 4:08pm April 6, 2011)

I enjoy time travel, legends/myths. This would be a good
series for me to read!
Leanna Morris 4:13pm April 6, 2011)

Sounds great! I can never read enough!
Trasina McGahey 4:21pm April 6, 2011)

I don't remember any Celtic legends but the one from England of Merlin. The book sounds great.
Lena Lee 4:53pm April 6, 2011)

I haven't read any books like these and I'm thinking I need to go get books 1&2 to go with #3 which I bought yesterday.
Christina Harrison 4:57pm April 6, 2011)

I'm anxious to get a copy of Haunting Beauty; I love everything Celtic.
Susan Shapley 5:03pm April 6, 2011)

I always loved the myths of the Irish Giants. The stories were told by family relatives for as long as I can remember.
The computer tales were even better. The Celtic Legends that are in this book sound great.
Rosemary Simm 5:31pm April 6, 2011)

Sounds really interesting. Look forward to sharing this book
with our library patrons.
Renee Howell 5:38pm April 6, 2011)

Book sounds interesting.
Deb Pelletier 6:00pm April 6, 2011)

Hi, Erin! The cover looks wonderful! I love stories about time travel, history, and legends. If all 3 books are like that, I need to read them. Thanks for blogging with us today.
Cathy Phillips 6:05pm April 6, 2011)

Great cover wow!!!, really sounds interesting. Can't wait to read.
Diane Castiglione 6:56pm April 6, 2011)

can't wait to read!!!
Jennifer Beck 7:13pm April 6, 2011)

Thanks so much for the giveaway. My favorite Celtic legend is the Banshee. I just love that word. I think it sounds so much better than fairy.
Beth Melito 7:31pm April 6, 2011)

So many of the legends are sad stories--I've always loved Dierdre of the Sorrows, but there are some women who win--the Morrigan, for example. Too bad she often wins at the expense of a dead hero.
Janet Martin 7:54pm April 6, 2011)

Sounds like another good read! Have always been intrigued by Celtic tales.
Diane Sallans 7:55pm April 6, 2011)

Lately, I can't get enough Fae. I think the history is so interesting.
Jennifer Beyer 8:27pm April 6, 2011)

I can't say I know any Celtic legends, but I love the movie The Quiet Man!
Renee Pajda 8:55pm April 6, 2011)

As far as Celtic legends, Avalon I believe is one and one of my favorite. I love the Celtic Goddess the Morrigan which is a complication within herself. And there is a tale that still goes strong about Glastonbury, from the tree to the healing waters.
Carla Carlson 9:22pm April 6, 2011)

I just love the Celts. I like the legend of the fish women who come on land to mate with men and then go back to the sea after the child is born, leaving the men with the babies.
MaryAnne Banks 10:26pm April 6, 2011)

I would say legends of the Morrigan
Robin Daily 11:57pm April 6, 2011)

I honestly don't have a favorite Celtic legend but the books sounds very exciting.
G. Bisbjerg 1:32am April 7, 2011)

Story sounds great,and the covers wonderful. Thanks for giving me a chance to win it.
Linda Hall 1:37am April 7, 2011)

I wish I knew some Celtic Legends to be able to choose a favorite. The book looks amazing.
Mary Preston 4:39am April 7, 2011)

I really love celtic legends. They are a window to the past. It is so interesting to see how they would use these legends to explain what they didn't understand.
I would love to read your book.
Debbie Penny 5:51am April 7, 2011)

Always with legends comes truth and lessons in life that wil shape and change one's life, characters, and mind. In many ways it shapes your soul in and out.
Anthonia Sharp 10:43am April 7, 2011)

Haunting Desire definately sounds like what I call a "Week-end Book". I qualify this as a book that you're going to want to set aside all entire weekend to read (or a very long day and night).

From the excerpt I can't imagine even taking the time to make dinner - order out for pizza and be sure to have it delivered because I know I won't be able to tear myself away.

Love your stories!
Jeanne Miro 10:51am April 7, 2011)

Looks like a amazing spell binding read.
My fave legend is Camulos and his invincible sword.
Also, the fairies are faves too.
Dayle Butler 11:44am April 7, 2011)

I loved reading all of your comments! Thank you so much for stopping by!
Erin Quinn 4:09pm April 7, 2011)

would love to read the book for you and blog the title and the cover is great
Desiree Reilly 4:22pm April 7, 2011)

I can't wait to read this book. thank's
Lynn Lanzon 8:37pm April 7, 2011)

Your books sound great
June A, Manning 1:54pm April 8, 2011)

Yep, that cover has miles of gazing ahead.
Alyson Widen 11:20am April 25, 2011)
