Conn explores the magical realm of the ancient Celts in a predictable love story that carries you not too far afield from traditional medieval romance.

Egan, the future ruler of the Dai Cais, tracks down the legendary prophetess Oriana, so she can interpret the sacred stones that foretell the clan's future. He's indifferent to her warnings as they journey to his homeland, until he discovers his father has been murdered. Hoping to expose the traitor, Egan persuades Oriana to pose as his mistress and use her powers to aid him.

She agrees, but when he's near, her skills vanish and are replaced by wanton desire. Together they fight the enemies that surround them and discover a love they cannot deny. (Love Spell, May, 380 pp., $6.99)
