THE FIRE AND THE EARTH
Genre: Paranormal/Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance
Book two in the Glenncailty Castle series, The Fire and the Earth puts a new spin on a classic: a ghost story. Ironically, the most settled character is also the most affected by the ghosts — Sean’s been trying to warn people for years about the menacing otherworldly presence in the castle, but no one’s listened. Sean is such a steady guy, quiet and calm, so his passion is a pleasant surprise and totally explosive once he decides to act on it. Sorcha and Sean form a sizzling and formidable partnership, though it’s an appropriately bumpy road to happily ever after for these complex characters.
A decade ago, Sean Donnovan was one of the men who discovered the body of a young girl who died wandering around the ruins of Glenncailty Castle. He’s seen the ghosts of the castle firsthand and he still believes the place is cursed. But his fears did nothing to stop a restoration project that turned Glenncailty into a fancy hotel, restaurant and pub to those that don’t mind a good ghost story. On the night of the grand opening, Sean lays eyes on the beautiful, red-haired Sorcha, and his attraction hasn’t faded any in the two years Sorcha’s been running the hotel. Though she never heeded Sean’s warnings, Sorcha asks him to tell her the full story behind the hauntings after an employee is attacked by a ghost. They decide that the secrets of the castle must be revealed once and for all, before anybody else gets hurt. (SAMHAIN, May, 232 pp., $14.00)
