Meet Renee Vincent ...

Renee Vincent's lifelong fascination with the legends and lore of ancient Ireland, and the powerful, compelling Scandinavian explorers and conquerors known as the Vikings, led her to create the thrilling historical romance series, "The Emerald Isle Trilogy".
Book one in the series, Ræliksen, introduces us to Mara, daughter of an Irish clansmen who is loved by both Dægan Ræliksen, a Norse warrior, and by Breandán Mac Liam, an Irish hunter. Ræliksen, a triumphantly successful debut for Renee Vincent, has earned numerous accolades: Winner of two categories by LoveRomanceCafe--"Best Book Cover 2010" and "Best Historical 2010"; a 5 Star TOP PICK from Night Owl Reviews; and #1 Choice for Marissa's Top 5 Books of 2010 at Sizzling Hot Reviews.

The second book in the series, Mac Liam, begins seven years after Ræliksen ends, and it allows us entry into the heart and mind of the soulful Irishman. Highly anticipated and critically well-received, Mac Liam has earned a 5 Star TOP PICK rating from Night Owl Reviews, the “5 Heart Sweetheart Award” from The Romance Studio, and the coveted reader-voted "Book of the Week" award from Long and Short Reviews.

The eagerly awaited conclusion to the "Emerald Isle Trilogy" can be found in The Fall of Rain, which released in December 2011. Like the other works, the final book has also earned several 5 Star reviews from Romancing The Book and Coffee Beans and Love Scenes. Renee recently created a stir among her devoted readers by announcing the upcoming release of The Temperate Warrior in December 2012.

“This book and author earn my highest recommendations and I feel privileged to have read one of the best.”
~ 5 Star TOP PICK! Night Owl Reviews
“This is a must-read for anyone who enjoys historical romance and I cannot wait to read the final book of the trilogy as this story has stayed with me days after I read the last word.”
~ 5 Hearts! The Romance Studio
“If I was told I only had one word to describe The Fall of Rain (the entire Emerald Island Trilogy, for that matter), it would have to be "FAN-FREAKING-TASTIC!" This story deserves so much more than just a 5 star rating, in my opinion.”

Renee Vincent lives in the beautiful green hills of Kentucky with her husband and children. Horseback riding is a favorite family activity, and it allows Renee to dream of riding across lands of ancient times, and stirring romantic tales brought to life by her creative imagination.

Though reading and writing historical romances is Renee’s first love, she has also branched out into the contemporary genre with her release of Silent Partner, which features a sexy and wealthy nightclub owner in search of the perfect dance partner. When Grayson Anders finds talented artist Chloe LaRoche, he feels he has met the woman of his dreams. However, Chloe has a secret which could keep them apart forever unless she and Grayson forge their love of music, dance, and art into a love to last a lifetime. Silent Partner, just released in April, 2011, has already earned two awards: 5 Star TOP PICK from Night Owl Reviews and LASR BEST BOOK from Long and Short Reviews.

Hey Renee'. I had no idea you had won all those awards. I'm not surprised. From what I've read of you, they are well deserved. After reading the first (in one day, couldn't put it down), the next two installments of the Emerald Isle Trilogy are on my TBR list.

I wish you greater success and lots of sales with The Fall Of Rain.

What a fabulous showcase for all your work, Renee! The "Chicks" did a great job. Love the world you created in the first Emerald Isle book. Looking forward to a return visit soon.

Another "Hey, Renee." :) You know I'm seriously in love with your books and can't say I'm going to buy them, 'cause I already did! I highly recommend them and I am a very picky reader of historicals. It's been a long time since I read a book as good as Raeliksen and I'm happily wending my way through the others in the series.
