Mainstream Fiction: Fantasy, Action/Adventure
Irish kings still rule the Emerald Isle—and a princess is in trouble . . .
Ancient Irish traditions remain strong in a world where High King Brian Boru survived the Battle of Clontarf and established a dynasty that rules Ireland to this day. When greed for oil prompts England’s Regent to claim an Irish island in the North Atlantic, Irish Crown Princess Talty becomes a pawn in a murderous plot to seize the throne of England.
From Japan to California to an eleventh century Ireland preparing for the Battle of Clontarf, Talty must hide her true identity, though she can’t hide her ingrained training as a member of the Fianna: the warriors who guard the Kingdom of Ireland. She brings home a discovery worth more than any oil well, yet all she wants is to return to her family and Neil Boru, the adoptive cousin she secretly loves and cannot have—or so she thinks. Neil has a secret of his own, one that emerges as the Boru clan works with MI6 to thwart an invasion of Ireland and bring Talty home.
|THE KEEPER by Diane Merlin|
Mainstream Romance: Science Fiction/Futuristic
For millennia Barrus has been recurrently devastated by the passage of a comet through its solar system. Every three hundred years the comet wipes out the trappings of civilization, throwing them back into a primitive state. This time a radical plan has been put into place. Twenty-seven young men—Keepers—have been conditioned since early childhood to learn, protect, and impart the sum total of their culture to the survivors of the destruction. As one of the Keepers, Taren is confident in his methods and abilities…until he meets Ami.
When she crashes her probe onto the little known planet, Ami has no idea her life is about to change forever. No amount of training could have prepared her for the man who rescues her, or the realization that civilization is not defined by technology but by the integrity of its people.
As diverse as two people could be, Taren and Ami struggle to heal a planet, stop a madman, and come to grips with a love that won't be denied.
