Dawn of the Clans #2: Thunder Rising also contains an exclusive bonus scene and a teaser to Dawn of the Clans #3: The First Battle.

THE CELTIC LEGEND SERIES From award-winning author Lisa Ann Verge comes three magical stories of adventure, passion and romance. TWICE UPON A TIME Legendary warrior Conor of Ulster defies his people to make the exiled Brigid of Morna his queen—until a shattering act of treachery destroys their world. Driven to the ends of the earth, Conor lives a thousand lifetimes in the fading hope that—one day, somehow—he’ll find Brigid once again. THE FAERY BRIDE Rhys is a cursed man, forced to hide his scarred face behind a leather mask. When he hears of a woman with healing powers, he crosses a sea to kidnap her. But the woman he brings back to his castle is no frightened girl, and she will move the Welsh lord as no blue-blooded beauty ever has. WILD HIGHLAND MAGIC Gifted with fairy blood, Cairenn is blessed and cursed with the ability to read minds--until a naked, half-dead Highland warrior washes up on the shore of her remote island. She nurses him back to life as she tries to pierce his thoughts without succumbing to his charm. For only a fool would fall in love with a man whose world she cannot inhabit, and whose heart she cannot know.
A troubled Highland chieftain courting madness ... a heartbroken English noblewoman seeking vengeance ... Somewhere between magic and war lies love ... Lady Isabel de Clare is on the run – and out for revenge against the man she blames for her brother’s death in the Crusades and her father’s descent into madness. When she finds Black Cade, she isn’t expecting him to protect her from the English fiancé she’s fleeing. She also doesn’t believe the tales of seillie and magic, until she uncovers a secret one night while under Black Cade’s protection. At first intrigued by the soft-spoken yet strong Isabel, Black Cade is soon faced with a difficult decision: protect her against her enemies despite knowing she’s there to kill him or leave her to deal with an abusive man out to steal her title and gold. When his secret is revealed, he decides to trap the beautiful Englishwoman in a loveless marriage to guarantee her silence and his life. Neither expects their hearts – or lives – to be threatened by the union, until danger breaks out in the Highlands, pitting fae against human, English against Scottish, husband against wife. Will the love of Isabel and Cade be enough to bring peace the Highlands?
