A promise to a dying friend finds Queen Maires great-grandson, Kieran, attempting to marryfor the protection only, of course, of Riona, a Godly woman, who wants to adopt three orphans. Getting her to accept his proposal, however, might prove more work than shes worth.

After the recent death of Rionas brother, Kieran is charged with murder. With her help, Kieran is fortunately able to escape immediate danger. But their adventure has just begun.

RIONA, the second book in The Fires of Gleannmara series, shines even brighter than the first. Wonderful characters, quick wit, and many trials create an enjoyable journey. Ms. Windsors passion for this series is evident. (Oct., 368 pp., $11.99)
