Maire
Fires of Gleannmara Series Book One
by: Linda Windsor

A fanciful, romantic tale of passion and faith that invites readers to the "God-graced mountains and plains" of Ireland. Maire, Gleannmara's warrior queen, finds her fierce heart is gentled when she takes a reformed mercenary -- a Christian, no less -- as hostage during a raid. At first she wonders what kind of God would make a fine warrior like Rowan of Emerys such a coward. But as she comes to know Rowan and witnesses the force of his beliefs, she learns that meekness and humility to the one true God are stronger than any blade of steel. And in the process, Maire discovers the transforming power of love and faith.

MAIRE - The Original Edition

Maire
Fires of Gleannmara Series Book One
by: Linda Windsor

In an age of darkness comes a flame that will change the Isle of Erin and her people forever...

Ireland. 5th Century A.D. An ancient land of timeless mystery, where, in the Age of the Saints, the spark of Christianity spread like wildfire among kings, scholars, and poor alike. And nowhere is the impact greater than among the druids, where the light of Christ divides those seeking truth from those seeking power.

Against this backdrop of passion and change, two warriors stand firm: Rowan ap Emrys, reformed mercenary, leader of his tribe, and Maire, warrior queen of Gleannmara.

When they finally join together, lifting their swords to unite their squabbling tribes against the evil druid Morlach and his forces of darkness, they discover the true cost--and joy--of following the One True God and His Christ.

Fires of Gleannmara Series Book Two
by: Linda Windsor

NO CHOICE...

Kieran, the proud warrior-king of Gleannmara was once rejected by the lovely Riona of Dromin, but this time the willful lady will have no choice in accepting him. He promised his dying best friend, her brother, to give Riona his protection as her lord and husband.

GOD'S WILL?

Her attachment to three orphans of the plague lead Riona to doubt her chosen future in the Church, especially when she suspects the motives of the couple who intend to adopt them. She can not adopt a family, not without a husband. When the arrogant Kieran of Gleannmara rides through the abbey gate, Riona can not believe this is the answer God sent to her prayers.

LED BY A CHILD...OR THREE?

Their options disappear after they stumble upon a treasonous plot and Kieran is framed for the murder of the abbot. Incapacitated by a wound, the prideful warrior becomes a fugitive, fleeing for justice at the high king's court and dependent on the faith and wit of a would-be nun and her prodigal band of homeless waifs in an adventure of faith, hope, and love.
