Sacred Places: An Immortal Highlander Novella (Druid Book 1) Kindle Edition
About the Author
Mandy M. Roth grew up fascinated by creatures that go bump in the night. From the very beginning, she showed signs of creativity--writing, painting, telling scary stories that left her little brother afraid to come out from under his bed. Combining her creativity with her passion for the paranormal has left her banging on the keyboard into the wee hours of the night.
Mandy lives in Oxford, Mississippi. She's a self-proclaimed Goonie, loves 80s music and movies and wishes leg warmers would come back into fashion. She also thinks the movie The Breakfast Club should be mandatory viewing for... okay, everyone. When she's not dancing around her office to the sounds of the 80s or writing books she can be found designing book covers for NY publishers, small press and indie authors. Mandy writes for Harlequin Spice, The Raven Books, Samhain Publishing, Ellora's Cave Publishing, Pocket Books, Running Press and Random House/Virgin/Black Lace.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
It is still a fun read with a good story and characters that are interesting. Loved the Scottish side to it and found Deri to be better than I remember.
My only complaint is why 3 YEARS, not 6 months or 1 year but 3 years. Way too long to not suss out the other is a magic wielder. That let it down for me and I was hoping in this rewrite/re-release that this would have been shortened. Alas NO. Still time taking its time apparently or is it two thick skulled idiots causing the problem.

The story is that of Deri, an immortal witch falsely accused of using her magic against a human. Framed for the crime by the seriously creepy Chad, a dark sorcerer who preys on witches and who kept hitting on her. She kept turning him down and this was his revenge. Everyone believed Chad's version of what happened, even her family. Sentenced to years of being unable to use her magic or contact anyone from her past, and still stalked by Chad, a grieving Deri goes to Grove Bluff, a small east coast tourist town she had passed through as a child and which had made a lasting impression on her. It felt safe, and she needed that right now. She gets a job at the local pub, The Dagger's Edge, where the Landlord, Coyle, makes her knees go weak every time she sees or hears him, and settles down to a life of unrequited love in the quaint seaside town.
Coyle O'Caha is a 700 year old Druid sorcerer, warrior and supposed ladies man who has spent his life looking for his soulmate. He trains new witches, protects humans, sits on the High Council of Magiks, hunts dark sorcerers and demons, runs his pub, and in his spare time, he saves fallen Oak trees and carves them into beautiful objects. When Deri walks into his pub, The Dagger's Edge, looking for a job, she makes the magical wards around the place shake and Coyle thinks he's finally found his 'one'. He wants to claim her immediately, but she's masked her magic so well, he thinks she's human and he was mistaken. Then his cousin Korey jokes about his womanising, Deri hears him, and a very different kind of relationship begins. Friendship of the purely platonic kind, if you discount the steaming hot dreams.
This is the way of their lives, until 3 years later.... No spoilers, you really need to read the book. Yes, this is a short read, but as usual Mandy has packed a lot of information into a small space. Written with her usual humour and great characters, there is so much background information that I don't feel like I've missed out on anything.
I highly recommend this book to anyone looking for a good read.
Going from town to town and not wanting to stay too long in one place incase he finds her, Deri ends up in a seaside town she remembers from her childhood called Grove Bluff. Looking for a job she's directed to a pub called The Dagger's Edge.
Coyle O'Caha is a 700 yr old powerful druid, who not only owns the pub but also sits on the council, trains new witches and he and his family protect the humans from anything thats gone bad and is using the dark arts.
When Deri enters his pub and finds Coyle without a shirt on, his upper body covered in celtic tattoo,s and a sprinkling of sawdust on him as well, everything comes to a sudden standstill.
Both feeling fuzzy headed, feeling their magik tingling and wanting to reach out and touch, kiss, claim the other. But both resist, as both thinking the other is only human.
Its only when Coyle's cousin Korey see's Deri using her magik, Korey keeps her secret for now but puts things into motion between the two.
I'm not going too much into the storyline (evil as always, yeah i know)lol, but it's only as i will spill too many spoilers,
Mandy has hit the nail on the head again with this book. The chemistry between the three characters is fantastic, with Coyle the dominant alpha male, Deri the feisty strong yet somewhat vulnerable female and Korey the cocky fun loving loving cousin. And the banter between Coyle and Korey is funny, has you laughing aloud. The sexual thoughts and encounters like all of Mandy's books are super steamy.
If you enjoy Mandy M Roth's other books then i thoroughly recommend you read this, it won't disappoint.
Another fantastic start to a series which i cant wait to read the next instalment.
5 stars +
With family drama and a hunk to keep you interested there is plenty of reasons to take a look at this great book.
