NOTE: This book was first published by Dorchester in 2003. It has been re-edited by the author and given a new cover, but is the same story as the original novel.

Battlefield violence. A few scenes of encounters between consenting adults over the age of 21. No part of this work was created using artificial intelligence (AI) software of any kind.

Each book in the Celtic Journeys series tells a complete story, so they may be read in any order.

Author's Notes

We moderns are accustomed to using calendars with numeric dates. The ancient Celtic people, though, used "second full moon after an equinox or solstice" to mark the beginning of a new season.
And there is still one modern holiday reckoned by moon and sun: Easter.
Easter is always celebrated on the "first Sunday, after the first full moon, after the spring equinox." Most likely the first full moon, not the second, was used so as not to have the day of Easter coincide with the old pagan festivals that were still celebrated for centuries in Britain and Europe.
One of my earlier books, MAIDEN OF THE WINDS, is a romance centered around the spring equinox in ancient Ireland. This novel is again available in both paperback and as an e-book.
