Maddie's Recommended Book of the Week

by Renee Vincent

Buy at Amazon!

Mara, the daughter of an Irish clansman, was raised to believe the men of the North are heathens - murderous pagans without a moral bone in their bodies. Despite warnings of the Northmen's raids, and the growing threat of another incursion, Mara is continually drawn to her favorite place - the River Shannon.

Dægan Ræliksen, a wealthy chieftain from Norway's frozen fjords, secretly discovers Mara at the water's edge. He is charmed by her beauty and sensuous grace. As the days pass, his contentment with watching her grows thin. He can no longer deny his desire.

Mara and Dægan come face-to-face in a time when every Irishman is being called up to fight against the Nordic foreigners. In these times of upheaval, can Dægan make peace with Mara's father and acquire the woman he treasures? Can Mara move past her fears and find the noble man within the savage?


"This book and author earn my highest recommendations and I feel privileged to have read one of the best. It is a must read for any lover of historical romance or even lovers of romance in general." Night Owl Reviews
“From the first page, one thing was abundantly clear. You don't read RÆLIKSEN. You experience it.” ~Amazon Review

“The powerful and moving love story of Daegan Raeliksen and his Lady Mara will resonate long after the last page is read. This is historical romantic fiction at its best, written by an author inspired by the legends and lure of ancient Ireland and Norway.” ~V. Campbell, Amazon Review

Hi Renee! I'm so happy to recommend this book. It is one of my all time favorite stories! I'm also excited about your new release of the third book in the trilogy, The Fall Of Rain. Another winner!

Thanks for your comment on the site. I love the new header and the color of this blog. I may change to the same color on the website. I wanted something a little different for each, but I'm really growing partial to this red!
