"Ms. Wilder's debut, quite impressive"
King Edward has come to Ireland to dominate and Kieran
MacAuley and his kinsmen will not stand for it. Though
they love their families, keeping their beloved Ireland
safe must be foremost at the moment. On a bloody
battlefield, the strong chieftain's life hangs in the
balance. Praying only that his men's souls find their way
to heaven, he's certain he cannot turn death away this
time. When a brave lass haunts the fallen men, he's
certain all he needs is a kiss from her to die in peace.
Brynna Ryan mourns the loss of the brave men of Ireland.
When she encounters the legendary Kieran, she calls upon
her fey roots to save his life. As he is already favored
by the faery Queen of Meath, it's a task well seen too.
Brynna nurses the handsome fighter back to health and in
the solitude of the forest, they discover there's more to
life than the next battle, be it for Ireland or on a more
personal level. But when Kieran asks more of Brynna than
she is willing to give, he'll have to overcome the tricky
veil that is fey magic if he truly wants to be with her.
Brynna will do all in her power to keep him safe, and if
it means keeping them apart due to her past, so be it.
Love has a way of unfolding the veil though and soon even
the world of faery will learn that it cannot hold love
Fearless is a stellar addition to the romance shelves and
as Ms. Wilder's debut, quite impressive. The story draws
one in from the very first paragraph with action and sets
the tone before the second page with romance and fey
intrigue. The characters are well written and we see a
wonderful progression of the hero and heroine throughout
the story. Kieran is a strong man, without being
overpowering and he finds his perfect mate in the kind and
just Brynna. There are plenty of emotional wringers, and
therefore plenty of opportunities to cry for and cheer the
two on. From the moment it starts, the pace is wonderful
and never slows down or meanders. The addition of the fey
elements add a measure of uncertainty, and left me to
wonder at times if all would indeed be well for the main
characters by book's end. A great way to spend a lazy
weekend—or one long, breathless night. Congrats to author
Wilder for her wonderful first contribution to the world

"We can surrender or we can fight."
For fearless Kieran MacAuley and his men, the choice was simple. This day, their legend would be plowed into the soil, carried on the wind to be heard far and wide across the Isle.
But of all his brave men, only Kieran would survive the disastrous battle. To what purpose had his life been spared? And who was the mysterious beauty whose face remained in his memory, though he could recall no name, no identity, to match it?
Theirs was a bond that could not be severed, a connection that went beyond the limits of mortality. And the moment he looked again into Brynna's flashing emerald eyes, Kieran knew he'd found his mystery woman...and his destiny.
