Overview


When young Irish artist Natasha Newlyn paints, she hears music; a wild, secret symphony of ancient jigs and reels that accompany her stunning watercolor landscapes. Natasha lives in a small sea village in the far west of Ireland, the perfect place for her work...or at least it was until the dreams came. Starting as nothing more than vague erotic images, the dreams begin to grow. Then they begin to affect her art...and intrude into her real life. When an invitation arrives to attend her friend's wedding in Brisbane, Australia, Natasha seizes the chance to have a vacation and sort out her confused mind.

But there is someone else who can also hear her secret music. Someone unearthly and dangerous. Someone who covets her: Finvarra, the Faerie King of Connaught. He has decided that she will be his next bride, and to that end he will follow her to the other side of the world.

But the entire Irish Faerie Court is a little out of place in the sub-tropical streets of Brisbane, Australia; and like many things, winning the heart (or at least the soul) of a mortal just isn't as easy as it used to be.

At the publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management software (DRM) applied.

Meet the Author


Paul Brandon was born in the middle of a hop field in darkest Kent, England. The first book he remembers being read to him was The Hobbit, closely followed by The Owl Who Was Afraid of the Dark. He went on to work in film and television production. The majority of his work was within commercials, but he also worked on documentaries, a few Barbara Walters Specials, pop music videos and the occasional movie.

He met his future wife Julie in an Irish pub in London, and six months later, he decided to pack up and move to Brisbane, Australia to be with her. After a couple of years in Australia, he took a month or so to write Swim the Moon, which was a little idea that came to him while listening to a Celtic fiddle tune during tea on a Sunday evening.

When he's not writing, Brandon can be found playing guitar for SĂșnas, a Celtic band that can be caught on most weekends playing in some pub or another around the Brisbane area, where Paul and Julie reside.
