 Court of the Hawk

by Debbie Peterson

 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~

 

BLURB:

 

Epigraphist Dr. Essie DeSpencer travels to an ancient Welsh castle in order to decipher an Ogham inscription discovered by the handsome and enigmatic, Garreth ap Daffyd. But the journey is not what she expects. She doesn’t plan to fall for the Lord of the castle, or to find herself deeply entrenched in legends, myths, and magic. Real legends, and real magic, that have devastating consequences.

 

Garreth didn’t plan for Essie to stay any longer than it took her to decipher the pictograph. Instead, he finds himself falling in love for the first time in his very long life. Now the Lord of

Llys y Gwalch must find a way to attain the heart of his soul mate and keep her safe from the dangers that threaten them both.

 

 

excerpt

 

Garreth rose from the bed, dressed for the day, and wandered outside his bedroom doors to the connecting veranda. He leaned against the balustrade, propped an elbow on top of it, and turned his gaze to the scattered lights that caused the hills to sparkle. Dawn had yet to touch the sky, though the sun would make its appearance soon enough. He took in that deep breath of fresh air he craved, held it for a moment, and then released it as he wondered what the day would bring.

 

“Now tell me something Garreth, why am I not surprised to see you wide awake, fully dressed, and outside in the dark all by yourself?”

 

Garreth turned around in response to the sound of Essie’s voice and fastened his gaze to hers. She looked so beautiful dressed in blue and bathed in glorious moonlight. He took a moment to drink in the image she presented. With her hands behind her back, she shut her balcony doors, and then strolled toward him. Didn’t she understand the peril in which she had placed herself with each advancing step she took?

 

By heaven—he sincerely hoped not.

 

He remained silent as she approached. Once she arrived at his side, she rested a hip against the railing, and turned to face him. She lifted a brow and waited for him to speak.

 

He didn’t intend to speak.

I give this book 5 fangs I really  love it
Such a great story that reads like a fairytale. S.E. DeSpencer or Essie is hired by Lord Garreth ap Daffyd the King of a cursed people that is being slowly destroyed by a devastating act of nature every 400 years. Lord Garreth is determined to find the key to the curse and stop it before the next disaster hits in 6 months. He has hired Essie to try to translate ancient writing in a cave that may hold the secrets he’s searching for.
As the days go on and Essie gets closer to the figuring out the translation she also grows closer with Garreth and his people.
The more she learns about the translation the more complicated breaking the curse seems to get, soon she finds herself talking to ghosts, having dinner with the King and queen of the Tylwyth Tegor (the fair folk ) and believing in dragons and other magical beings. The journey to discover how to stop the curse is fraught with peril and someone is desperately trying to stop them from discovering the secret first. Essie is falling in love and can’t bare the idea of another disaster claiming lives of the people she has come to love but will they be able to brake the curse before time runs out ?
Immerse yourself in this beautiful love story filled with magic, romance adventure and danger.
No cliffhangers which is a nice bonus.
