Our SPOTLIGHT is on 'RAELIKSEN' by Renee Vincent...

Book One of the Emerald Isle Trilogy

Mara, the daughter of an Irish clansman, was raised to believe the men of the North are heathens - murderous pagans without a moral bone in their bodies. Despite warnings of the Northmen's raids, and the growing threat of another incursion, Mara is continually drawn to her favorite place - the River Shannon.

Dægan Ræliksen, a wealthy chieftain from Norway's frozen fjords, secretly discovers Mara at the water's edge. He is charmed by her beauty and sensuous grace. As the days pass, his contentment with simply watching her grows thin. He can no longer deny his unabated desire for the young maiden. His search for a wife has ended.

However, Mara and Dægan come face-to-face in a time when Ireland is in turmoil - when every Irishman is being called up to fight against the Nordic foreigners. In these times of upheaval, how can Dægan make peace with Mara's father and acquire the woman he treasures? Furthermore, can Mara move past her fears and find the noble man within the savage?

Hello, Ladies. You have a good guest and author today. The new cover for RAELIKSEN is lovely as is the cover for Book 2 in the trilogy. I have the old version on my TBR shelf and once the weather cools off so I have longer nights by the fire with something warm to drink, the mood will be right to read it.
Renee, good luck with the release of the new version and with the upcoming 2nd book.
