"Take an entertaining trip to the past!"

Lucius Aquila does not believe the reports of his brother Aulus' accidental death, especially as his brother's ghost is haunting him. Lucius arranges to fill his brother's post as Roman army commander to Britannia in order to investigate his death.

Widowed Rhiannon is the descendent of a Celtic queen but she is helpless to prevent Druid priest Magdog and others from leading their clan into war and destruction. She is disturbed by what she witnessed during the sacrificial death of Aulus, Lucius' brother.

Aulus leaves Lucius whenever Rhiannon is around. Lucius finds peace by being with her but he also realizes that she is the key to putting his brother to rest. There is some ghostly humor as well as haunting along with a variety of interesting relatives and friends.

The Roman times are not the usual venue I read in historical romance; so I found the setting intriguing. As this is a war story in primitive times, there is violence and some disturbing scenes including the Druid sacrifice. Story events and relationships develop at a comfortable pace for the reader to develop feelings for the characters and their dilemmas. They came to life and the hopes for happily-ever-after in a hopeless situation kept you turning pages until the end.

If you enjoy Historical romance, this is a book you won't want to miss. CELTIC FIRE won't go on my keeper shelf, but reading it was a pleasure and I would recommend it as an entertaining trip to the past.

In the wilds of Britannia, a fierce battle rages. Rhiannon, rightful ruler of the Celts, longs to see the invading Romans driven from her land. But when she is taken by the enemy, she can’t deny her reaction to their compelling leader. His dark eyes promise endless nights of wicked delight, yet Rhiannon is haunted by an eerie feeling of recognition…


Having to look upon the ghost of his murdered brother is torture for Commander Lucius Aquila, but the woman he’d captured in battle has the power to make the visions disappear. Lucius knows Rhiannon can help him solve the mystery of Aulus’s death. He doesn’t know she guards a terrible secret — the killers are her kinsmen, and the Druid curse that binds the dead man’s soul will not be easily broken.
