Hi everyone,

For Valentine weekend I have an excerpt from one of my Druid/Romances, Druid Bride. A mystical, romantic tale, full of adventure that will sweep you away to another place and time, 1st century AD Scotland. It's against the same backdrop as the new movie The Eagle.

Excerpt:
Together they gulped down the golden mead. Never, not once, did they tear their eyes away from each other.

“As the mead flows through you, let the spirit fill you.” Tanwen walked over to the cauldron and dipped her hand in the dark, gooey, blue dye.

Her finger slinked down his face, streaking both cheeks blue. The woad was warm, her touch hotter. His tinted checks burned. After dipping her hands into the dye again, her ring-bedecked fingers danced over the muscles rippling down his arms, tracing each of his tattoos, following the lines as she painted them blue. He quivered. The gods shielded him through these symbols.

The first was a wolf, with an open mouth drawn as a curve. Then the boar with tusk made from a circle, with a line drawn though it and two knots on each end. His flesh tingled as she painted the lines of a swirling snake. Far more potent than heather mead, the power the woad awoke in the tattoos left him light-headed. He drew in a deep breath to clear his head as she spread her hands over his firm stomach and down his strong legs, coating them in blue dye.

She took a step back and smiled coyly, as if wondering what mischief she could stir up next.


Happy Valentine's,
