Cead Mile Failte

Cead Mile Failte is an Irish Blessing that means "a hundred thousand welcomes."

We welcome everyone to Brianna O'Shea's debut week as we head toward St. Patrick's Day. Tomorrow marks the long-awaited release of BRIANNA'S MAGIC at It's a smart and sexy story with a gorgeous cover about an Irish witch and an American businessman who find the old magic working its spell on both of them as they fall in love amidst the ruins of an ancient Irish castle.

Here's the opening:

Brianna O’Shea walked out the back door of her great-grandmother’s cottage toward the ruins of Castle Torin. The moon was almost full, casting an ethereal glow over the damp, heather-strewn field. The rain had stopped about an hour ago, but tiny drops still glistened in the cracks and crevices of the stone wall.

Now not a single cloud marred the night sky. Stars pricked the blackness like handfuls of sequins scattered across a velvet cloth. Black and silver. Everywhere she looked, Brianna saw the gleaming contrast of sparkle against darkness. Surely tonight, if ever, faeries danced in the moonlight.

That's all for today. I'll be adding a little bit more every day this week, so stay tuned if you want to catch a little more Irish magic.

Meanwhile, I'm chatting tonight at Romance Junkies. 9:00 Eastern Daylight Time. See you there!

Have a wonderful day!
