Cooper and I have read each other’s books and been online friends for a few years. I finally met Andrea in person at the Crimson Romance authors’ book signing at Katy Budget Books in Katy, Texas last month. We spent a delightful afternoon meeting readers and discussing our craft. I am so pleased to welcome Andrea to my blog today to tell us about her prequel to Viking Fire.
– February 2015
In Medieval times, Bram has agreed to a marriage of convenience with an Irish nobleman’s daughter. A marriage bargain is struck in exchange for land and his services fighting with the Laird Liannon’s clan against all rivals: Norsemen and Irish alike. However, Bram’s intended does not stir his heart. Not like the Laird’s daughter, Kaireen. Unknowingly, Kaireen has captured his Viking heart. Somehow, he must not only convince the Laird to amend his marriage contract, but win the heart of the stubborn feisty Kaireen in this Viking historical romance.
When he dove forward, Bram ducked to the side and snatched the sailor’s arm, pinning it to his side. When the sailor slung with his free arm, Bram increased the pressure until the man was on his knees.
In 856 CE, Ireland is a land of myth, magic, and blood. Viking raiders have fought the Irish for over half a century. Rival Irish clans promise only betrayal and carnage. Kaireen, daughter of Laird Liannon, is suddenly forced into an arranged marriage with her sworn enemy, a Viking. She refuses to submit. With no mention of love, only land and the protection of her clan, she endeavors to get her betrothed banished from her country. Will love find its way around her stubborn heart?
Andrea’s Bio: Andrea has always created characters and stories. But it wasn’t until she was in her late twenties that she started
writing novels. What happened that ignited the writing flame in her fingers? Divorced, and disillusioned by love songs and stories. They exaggerate. She thought. Love and Romance are not like that in the real world. Then she met her husband and realized, yes love and romance are exactly like the songs and stories say. She is now a happy wife, and a mom to three kids (two boys and a girl).
Andrea writes fantasy, paranormal, historical, and contemporary romance suspense. When not writing or reading, one may find Andrea dancing in Zumba or playing tag with her kids. She believes in the power of change and counting each moment as a blessing. But most importantly, she believes in love.
