Morning Song

A headstrong runaway:
When practical spinster Hannah Gray rescues her nephew Pip from his cruel father, she has no choice but to flee Ireland. Once in England, fate hurls her onto the doorstep of notorious eccentric Austen Dante. Aware that the isolated manor is the perfect place to hide Pip, Hannah takes a desperate gamble, pretending that she can transcribe Dante’s musical compositions—even though she can’t understand a single note.

A man of secrets:
Mercurial inventor and composer Austen Dante knows why he is called the “mad master of Ravenscar”. Countless assistants have fled, unable to keep up with his frenetic work pace. Yet Dante will trust no one with the reason for his race against time—or the secret that has shaped his solitary life. When he plucks a ‘half-drowned Irish cat’ from a storm he never suspects that she will match his fire, but Hannah Gray is living a lie.

Can a love begun in deception survive when the truth is revealed in the harsh morning’s light?

Her Magic Touch

A Desperate Magic...
On Beltane eve, Mary Fallon Delaney steals to a castle ruin where her mother’s allegedly magical brooch has been hidden all these years, waiting for the right moment to summon “Ciaran of the Mist,” a mythical Celtic warrior promised to appear at the hour of Ireland's greatest need. A legend to be sure, but Fallon is willing to try anything to save Ireland from the marauding English. When she waits for the moonlight to work its magic with the brooch, a naked stranger stumbles out of the mist and she stares in disbelief.
