What if the standing stones and stone circles across the old Celtic world had a secret origin and use?
What if some opened into another world?
What if the goddess of fire was trapped beneath one?
Lovely and innocent Brienne of Yester has always been able to manipulate fire, but when her powers suddenly surge, the simple life she once knew explodes.
Handsome, fearless, and commanding William de Brus has been summoned by the king to investigate a nobleman rumored to have powers linked to the fabled fire goddess. When he chances upon Brienne, his desire for her is immediate. But as his mystical quest unfolds, William realizes that she is at the center of it—for Brienne possesses the very power he has been sent to vanquish....
As their attraction deepens, William attempts to free Brienne from the dark force beginning to control her—even when his duty demands that he treat her as an enemy. With emotions flaring, fire rising, and evil threatening at every turn, can the two lovers survive the coming battle and save all of humanity
When the heroine of Rising Fire must make an impossible choice, a choice between what she knows in her heart is right and what she’s dreamed of, the hero of the book is uniquely positioned to give her sage advice.
But as Shakespeare once wrote, “something is rotten” in the Scotland of Terri Brisbin’s Rising Fire. The King has sent the hero to report on the behavior of one of his councilors, the lord of a village in Scotland. And the kind of behavior, the King explains, is the sort that is rather troublesome.
