Overview

The House of O’Byrne, governed by Haley's line, has become one of the most magically powerful branches of the O’Byrne dynasty. Adell, who is the new Matron, has opened its doors for the winter celebrations. Over a hundred relatives will be attending.

These aren’t strangers. They are the people Adell has known all her life. Magic literally dances on their fingertips.

Things start off right with the love of family, and the magical shenanigans of those happily carrying on. Then start going terribly wrong.

There is a traitor from within whose jealous spite wants to crush them all.

Unaware of the threat, the teenage girls fool around with magic and inadvertently open a portal into Faerie. This initiates a whole mess of complications.

Trapped within the magical house, deep love and silent hate are constant companions until the truth is exposed.

Meet the Author

I’ve been addicted to reading since the fifth grade. I mainly write Magical Fantasy, but have just started writing Erotic Romance Suspense novels, in a new series called Monopoly Corporation. My first book is called, The Lie that is Vermont Avenue. Book Two, which I’m writing now, is called, Marvin Buried in the Gardens. Monopoly Corporation own Safe Houses across the nation. They give, Protect and Serve, a whole new meaning. I love riding motorcycles with my husband. Ha, I’m the passenger. I love the wind in my face, and the smell of blackberries on a hot summer day. I love pointing out the hawks on the power poles as we move along. I was born in Norwalk, California in 1960, and grew up in Santa Cruz, California. At the age of ten, our family moved to Oregon. I miss the warm ocean. I married my husband Darrel in June of 1984. We are still together and very much in love. Still happy and wanting more. Christmas in the House of O'Byrne was my first novel. I was so taken with the storyline and characters of the book that I created a series called, Druantia's Children. In these books, the ancestry of their magical family is described. I was inspired to go back in time, and create stories for the original seven sisters who migrated to America. This series is called, The O'Byrne Daughters. I create all my own covers and artwork. It’s nice to be able to switch back and forth. I always have several books in the writing stage. It keeps my ideas fresh and alive. I fight with Fibromyalgia. It was suggested that I write about it. It took a while. I wanted it to be as blunt and forthcoming as I could make it. For those fighting with Fibromyalgia, I stress for them to pursue something they are passionate about! Something that will help them get up every morning! I write to make people feel, to live. Embrace your life, and don’t let anyone steal your dreams!

It's full of magic, humor and family. It feels real, like a magical family really could live in our modern society. This will make a terrific christmas gift. I can't wait for it to be available again so I can buy a copy for my brother.

I am really enjoying this whole series. The family dynamics are very true. There are some grammer errors, mainly with tenses, and some spelling errors, but not so many to be distracting. I'll be reading the remaining two books, which is unusual for me. I get bored with long series very quickly. I recommend anyone who likes magic and families try these books. 4 stars instead of 5 because of the need for better editing.
