Title: The Immortal’s Hunger
Author: Kelli Ireland
When you play with fire…
It was only a matter of time before Gareth Brennan had to die. Before he made that ultimate sacrifice, the assassin wanted to know warmth once again. His recent experiences had destroyed his ability to create fire, yet sexy bartender Ashley Clement was now igniting one within him.
As a Phoenix, Ashley had limited time herself; soon a male Phoenix would claim her. Unless she could find a lover. Gareth was the perfect man for the job. Except he was no human, and their union might draw even more danger. But to deny their fiery attraction…that was a truly impossible task.
Welcome back to the myth and magic of Ireland! The first book in the series introduced you to the five men, all Druids, who make up the Assassin’s Arcanum. This second book introduces the man who’s second in command, or Regent: Gareth Brennan. Darkness has weighed him down for too long, but the personal sacrifice it will take to shed that weight may be too high a cost. Only time, and the power of love, will tell.
I was fortunate to spend several weeks in Ireland not long ago. The country is as charming as it is indescribably beautiful. And I can tell you without batting an eye that the country is as green as it’s reputed to be. And the people? They’re warm, friendly and have a quick wit about them. I made friends there that I still miss (waves at Mary and Tommy!)
Every time I delve into an Arcanum member’s story, I’m transported back to this land. Ireland wove her own magic around me. It seemed anything…everything was possible while I was there. I’ve cherished each discovery I made in Ireland, both personal and professional. But that particular feeling of being able to do anything I set my mind to? I’ve held it closest of all.
May that sense of wonder and the urge to believe in the impossible find you somewhere within the pages of Gareth’s story.
Until next time,
