Overview

Psychics in the Old West? Yes indeed! Say howdy to Lyn Horner's Texas Devlins, a trio of extraordinary siblings. Darlin' Irish, the first book in the author's unique, award-winning trilogy, is a tale of epic adventure and steamy romance set ablaze by flashes of psychic power.

Jessie Devlin possesses second sight, a gift inherited from the "Old Ones," her Irish Druid ancestors. A survivor of the Great Chicago Fire of 1871, she endures nightmares of the fire in which a gentle, loving stranger saves her life. She believes they are fated to love and a prophetic vision sends her west in search of him. But a second vision warns of a fiery-eyed madman who may also wait somewhere beyond the horizon. Will her quest lead her to happiness . . . or into a deadly trap?

Captain David Taylor is a Texan banished from home after fighting for the "wrong side" in the War Between the States. Now serving on the frontier, David meets Jessie on the way back to his post after a trip east. She stares at him as if seeing a ghost, for he looks like the hero in her dreams, but while he's entranced by her beauty, he has no taste for her firecracker temper. She brings to mind someone from his past who he'd rather forget.

As the two journey west by rail their clashing personalities war with a fiery attraction to one another. Violence dogs their path and explodes in Mormon Utah. Whether love will win the day or be lost forever is a question that hangs in the balance until a shattering final battle between good and evil on the broad Texas plains.

BigAl's Books and Pals - Big Al
. . .the historical elements, including many subtle touches, all ring true. It blends a compelling romantic story line, and all that implies, with a coming-of-age story line for the heroine . . . Jessie's prophetic visions, which give Darlin' Druid its supernatural twist, serve as a plot device, by foreshadowing and also driving Jessie's decisions. Fans of historical romance and possibly even those who are into westerns, sans romance, should find much to like in Darlin

DARLIN' DRUID by Lyn Horner should be made into a movie! It has all the right ingredients: wild west setting, lots of fast-pace action, a fiesty heroine, a truly nasty villain and a hero to-die-for. It's a real page-turning tale, historically accurate, beautifully written and lots of romance to make your heart race. I can't wait for a sequel from this talented author. --Reviewer is a Harlequin Historical author.

Darlin' Druid is a sweeping panoramic romance set in the Old West after the Civil War, stretching from Chicago to Salt Lake City and then rural Texas. The historical detail was fascinating, showing slices of life in the Old West from miners to cavalry soldiers to ranchers. This book features a wonderful romance between the hero and heroine, filled with passion and excitement and lots of sexual tension. A must read for all romance history readers!! --Reviewer is a multi-published romance author.

This is an engaging, page turning, can't put it down, don't know where the time went, read. ...I had already started Steig Larsson's "The Girl Who Kicked the Hornet's Nest"; having finished the first two books in Larsson's series I was anxious to complete the third. But I picked up Horner's book and frankly the pace was so much faster and the book more engaging that I put best selling Hornet aside in favor of finishing Horner's book.

After ordering this to be downloaded on my puter, became captivated and read it through in one sitting at the puter. It was obviously well researched historically and the characters were interesting and were realistically believable. Am looking forward to the continuing story in future novels. I am HOOKED!!!
