"Ms. Pray has done a fantastic job bringing the Celtic era to life"
Susan White has just arrived in England to a dig site that
she is anxious to excavate. While at the dig site a friend
of hers named Patrick was constantly getting on her nerves.
When Susan had enough and her anger was about to get the
best of her, she walked away. Susan kicked a lump of dirt
across the ground, when the mud shattered; she saw a curved
metal object. She soon realized she found a Celtic Torc.
Susan was very happy, she had never been around when
something so precious had been discovered. Susan was about
to go back to the dig site and show everyone what she had
found, when she was struck by lightning.
When Susan awoke, she was in the arms of a strange man,
whose speech and attire suggested he was from another time.
At first Susan thought this was all a joke, but soon she
realized she has been thrown into the past.
Govan thought she was a runaway slave, or possibly a Roman,
he didn't know what to make of her odd dress or her
nonsense tongue. But Govan was determined to protect her
from the Romans; he already lost one love to the Roman
Army. Susan thinks Govan is gorgeous but he seems a bit
sexist at times and when she steps out of line, he turns
her across his lap and spanks her. Govan and Susan set out
to find the Sidhe, for they are the only ones who have the
magical capabilities to send her back to her own time.
However, the Romans provide a constant threat of danger.
Susan soon begins to question her feelings for Govan, will
she want to return home or has she found the man she has
been searching for?
Celtic Bonds by Terri Pray is awesome. For one I
have always been interested in this time period and it
seems Ms. Pray has done her homework and it has paid off.
She brought this era to life; combined with the romance,
this story is a hit!
