About the Book

When an injured Fianna Byrne turns up at Connell O’Neill’s gate twelve years after their separation he knows this could be his last chance to find happiness with the woman he loves.

False accusations against Fianna had strained relations between their clans and forced Connell, under Irish law, to divorce her. Their disastrous three-month relationship left Fianna pregnant and heartbroken. She has avoided Duncarraig and her ex-husband ever since.

But with her home obliterated by the Vikings, Fianna must face her past in order to save her son, and prove once and for all she is a woman of courage.

Excerpt

Connell held Fianna’s hand as he led her inside. Was this really happening or was it a dream? He had to turn around and check. He had imagined this moment for the last twelve years. His attraction to her was more than physical. He enjoyed her fire, and her spirit. She lived by her own moral code and did not bend to the will of others without reason. These were the characteristics his father had abhorred, but then, Seamus had enjoyed weak women. Pretty, mindless things he could hang on his arm.

Had his father been threatened by Fianna’s strength? After she was gone, Connell had come to realize her depth of character made her special. She had been his confidante, lover, and friend. Her intelligence did not overwhelm his intellect, as his father had suggested, but enhanced it. For those brief months he enjoyed her counsel, and had missed it every day since.

He glanced at her again. Even with everything that had happened this night she had the bearing of a queen, an indomitable woman who could never be conquered.

 

Book Review

Disclaimer: I received a complimentary copy of A Woman of Courage by Marlow Kelly in exchange for an honest review.

I am pleased to be able to read and review A Woman of Courage, Book 3 of the Honour, Love & Courage series by Marlow Kelly.

I found it very easy to immerse myself in the story of Fianna and Connell as soon as I opened the pages of A Woman of Courage. Ms. Kelly’s style of writing is very smooth and descriptive. Even with the horrid events at the beginning I wanted very much for Fianna and Connell to put the past behind them and acknowledge the love they both had felt and were obviously continuing to feel toward each other so many years later.

It isn’t easy for me to write a thorough review of such a short tome without giving spoilers in the process and I do try to keep spoilers out of my reviews.

I know that I will be going back to read A Woman of Honour and A Woman of Love to see more of Ms. Kelly’s colorful writing.

I highly recommend A Woman of Courage by Marlow Kelly and give it five steaming hot cups of Room With Books coffee.

Cover_A Woman of Honour

Duncan Campbell wakes to discover he is imprisoned with a woman in his enemy’s dungeon in the Highlands of Scotland. The disenchanted warrior hopes his last few moments on earth will be spent in the arms of the sweet-voiced Isabel. If only she will cooperate.

Isabel Douglas has no intention of obliging the crude captive. The penniless noblewoman considers herself too tall and thin to be desirable. She intends to become a nun. But first, disguised as a boy, she must deliver an important letter to Scotland’s hero in hiding, King Robert the Bruce.

Together, the pair make a daring escape that plunges them into the bleak countryside in the middle of winter. In the struggle to survive, they learn the true strength of their feelings for each other. But when Duncan’s animosity towards the king becomes evident, Isabel must decide between her heart and her country.

EXCERPT:

“And even though we’re going to die, you still can’t find it in your heart to forgive me?”

“Maybe if you were very nice to me and warmed me with your sweet, little body, I could see my way to absolving you.”

She gasped and he couldn’t help but smile at her outraged reaction. He had no idea why he enjoyed baiting her, but he couldn’t seem to stop.

“You’re the most sinful man I’ve ever met. I take it back. I don’t want your absolution. How can you think about your carnal needs at a time like this?”

The ire in her voice made him want to continue their argument, but his headache was worsening by the minute.
