No one ever said winning a Goddess’s love was easy…

Parlan, the new high king of Ireland, has been chosen by his people. Now he must be seen as a king in the eyes of the gods of ancient Ireland. He must take the goddess Eriu as his wife for one night, but he quickly realizes that one night will never be enough. Yet even a king must work for the love of a goddess. And when his arrogance opens his country up to a terrible curse, Parlan must depend on Eriu’s mercy to save them all.

Despite her temptation to give in to the strong and handsome mortal king, her pride does not allow Eriu to let Parlan take her as his wife. Yet as the goddess of the land, Eriu’s fate is tied directly to that of the country the Black Dragon is destroying. Although she has vowed to help Parlan defeat the Dragon, her power is weakening and Parlan is left to fight a battle with the odds, gods, and even his own men against him.

This title was originally published by Dorchester Love Spell in February 2006.

For centuries, Eriu, goddess of Ireland, had spent one night only with the Ard Ri, the high king 'elect', to confirm him in his office. After that night, they parted, never to see one another again, but for Parlan, the newest Ard Ri, that is not enough. No other woman will now do for him, and his defiance brings a curse upon the land. To break the curse and atone for his pride, Parlan must go on a quest to retrieve four sacred artifacts that will allow him to face the Black Dragon with a prayer of winning. Eriu herself chooses to help him, for she has lost her heart to the proud king. ................... *** Forbidden love and legend mingle in this epic quest. This modern story has the feel of being taken straight from myth, but is original. Though the characterization is a bit light, the epiphany in the end is enough payoff to compensate for that. ***

At the moment of his greatest triumph, being anointed the High King of Eire, the euphoric Parlan vows to make the Goddess Eriu his queen. Angering the Druids with the affront to the Goddess, Eire is placed under a curse that only he can break by fulfilling a quest. Ironically if he succeeds he might also win the hand of Eriu who he loves with all of his soul. --- Parlan has one year to accumulate four magical artifacts hidden in dangerous locales. If he succeeds in collecting the sword, spear, cup, and stone, he then must fight and defeat the Black Dragon using the artifacts correctly. If he fails at any point, the Black Dragon will turn Eire into a wasteland. --- GODDESS OF EIRE is an intriguing fantasy with some limited romantic elements supporting the prime story line of the misguided champion trying to save his people from the lethal wrath he brought upon them in the name of love. The action-packed story line will enable readers to believe in the magic of the Druids and the supernatural powers of the Gods. Parlan, filled with both love and guilt, is an interesting star as he strongly feels that when he succeeds he will achieve his two, at least in his mind, compatible goals. He makes the quest for the artifacts and the Goddess Eriu a fine read. --- Harriet Klausner
