Dariel Raye's Book Talk Wednesdays


Join me in welcoming today's featured authors, Jennifer James, with her new release, "Long Time Coming," and Delaney Rhodes, with her award winning Celtic Steel series!


Long Time Coming:

One scorching weekend of no-strings sex? Or the first two days of something special…Going home for his older sister’s wedding has been a real pain. Unable to get a room at a local hotel, he's stuck in his parents’ spare bedroom, in a twin bed too short for his six-four frame, with nothing to do but fantasize about his sister’s maid of honor and her little purple bikini. Joey Sanchez: the woman he’s had a crush on for the last ten years. All grown up in all the right places.And it just so happens she’s had a crush on him too.

Lucky for him, Joey knows what she wants. In the pool, in the movie theater, with some very hot text messages, she quenches his desire and demands no promises. She’s married to her career, and that’s the way she likes it. But with the weekend winding down, Rob realizes she’s only left him wanting more. And he doesn’t want to spend the next ten years without her…

Celtic Storms 

"This is more than just a love story. It is a story that will connect the reader through time. This story has well-developed characters, an amazing plot and is well written." ~ S. Welker

"... it's obvious that Ms. Rhodes has spent a great deal of time and energy researching this particularly tumultuous time in the history of Ireland." ~ M. Bryce

Celtic Storms

Darina O'Malley watched the sun set in the bay from the great tower in O'Malley castle - saying a silent prayer for her cousin Kyra and hoping the message that was delivered to the MacCahan's did not spell sudden doom for her and her people. If what her Uncle Ruarc had told her was true, she was to be married to a stranger in less than five days and her world would turn upside down.

The realization that her clan held secrets which could destroy them forever chilled her blood. Who was this son of a Laird she was betrothed to and how would he react when he learned the truth?



"Celtic Storms, Book 1 in the Celtic Steel Series, explores the captivating lives of fifteenth century Irish Celts and their quest for dominance in an ancient land full of magic, murder and mayhem."

Celtic Shores 

Celtic Steel Series, Book 2

Patrick MacCahan just became the new Laird of the O'Malley clan. His new position is met with many obstacles; including a tempestuous new wife, a two-decade long war with a neighboring village, a missing foster child and a pagan witch who overpowers the clan at every turn.

Parkin MacCahan's life just got a lot more exciting. His older brother Patrick has married the eldest daughter of the O'Malley clan. His father is building a shipping empire off the coast of Northern Ireland. Parkin must oversee the operations and coordinate efforts between the O'Malleys and the MacCahans. 

In order to dock at O'Malley port, Parkin and his men must sail past the legendary Island of Women. Will Parkin be able to withstand the temptation to trespass the legendary shore? Or will he be invited?

Kyra O'Connell has resided in O'Malley territory all of her life. As the niece of the late Laird Dallin O'Malley, and daughter of the clan's chieftan, she has been part of the inner circle for as long as she can remember. When a spy is found among the villagers, Kyra is asked to take up residence on the Island of Women and to infiltrate their ranks as a spy herself.

Celtic Skies, Book 3 in the Celtic Steel Series


WHAT IS CELTIC SKIES?
Flynn Montgomery has just taken a new commission as the chieftan of O’Malley clan troops in Western Ireland. His cousin, Patrick MacCahan-O’Malley, is the Lord of the O’Malley clan; and they are expanding their shipping enterprise across the seas. Flynn is needed in O’Malley territory to lead the clan’s defense and military operations.

O’Malley lands are far from his home in the Shiant Islands of Scotland. A highlander by descent, Flynn is well respected among his people, but unknown to the Irish clan he is bid to serve. Will the O’Malley clan grow to accept him as one their own?
Is someone stealing the MacCahan and O’Malley clan ships? The O’Malley Lord, his brother Payton, and Ruarc O’Connell, the former chieftan, must investigate the strange disappearance of three vessels and ensure the clan’s safety during their absence. Are there pirates on the sea, or could this be the work of a much darker force?

Dervilla O’Malley has watched as her sister and friends have found love. Are the goddesses ignoring her? Is she destined to remain alone as most of the women of O’Malley territory; or will her knowledge of clan maps and nautical charts introduce her to a life she never imagined?
