"Wonderful Celtic romance!"

Tanwen, a young Druidess, lost her entire family to the Romans. Now living with her mentors, two aged druids, Sulwen and Rhys, Tanwen is not happy when she has to leave them to carry out her quest to marry the son of the chief of the Caledonii tribe. At least she will not be going alone as two warriors will accompany her, Huctia and Gethin. There is no way Tanwen will fail in her quest. After all, the spirit of her grandmother—the great Boudica herself—came to Tanwen and told her she must wed the son of the Caledonii chief. It will be the only way the Celts will be able to defeat Rome. And Tanwen really wants any and all Romans gone from Celtic soil. So, the three of them leave Britannia and travel to the lands of the Picts. When they get to Caledonia, they run across a perfect specimen of a warrior, who takes them to Calach, the chief of the Caledonii. Tanwen only hopes her future husband is as handsome as the warrior she met. Of course, Calach invites Tanwen and her guards to stay in his village and gives her her own wheelhouse. He doesn't promise anything about the marriage though.

While out boar hunting, Brude runs across a Druidess and her two guards. When she tells him of her quest, Brude is shocked for he has no intentions of marrying yet, much less to a Druidess. Everyone knows they can read minds and when he does finally decide to marry, he wants a wife who will devote all her time to him and his children, not the tribe. The fact she is a beauty doesn't enter into anything. Brude will not marry a Druidess.

When Tanwen finds out the man she first saw on Caledonia is none other than the one Boudica wants her to wed, she is shocked. He is so handsome and everything she wants in a husband. Unfortunately, Brude doesn't seem to want to marry her.

Will Tanwen be able to convince Brude to wed her? Will Brude be able to deny his growing feelings for the Druidess? Is there a chance they will be able to defeat the Romans once and for all?

DRUID BRIDE is a fascinating look into the world of Druids and Celts. Cornelia Amiri has obviously done her research well before ever writing this tale. I loved all the details of the daily life of a Celt and all the ceremonies attached to the various seasons. This is a romance after all and we have plenty of that between Tanwen and Brude—both determined to follow what they see as their paths through life. Both stubborn and not wanting to give an inch, but when they come together sparks fly. We have a little bit of everything in this story, from romance to magic, and battles galore. This is a fascinating story and one I highly recommend to all lovers of Celtic history.
