Blurb:

Lara Spenser is running for her life. She guards a treasured relic from ages past that her ruthless enemies want to get their hands on. Although she has escaped to Ireland, her special sixth sense tells her the “Hellhounds” are closing in. Injured in a car wreck that killed her beloved uncle, she is desperate for someone to act as her bodyguard.

Enter Connor O’Shea, ex-Special Forces soldier on extended leave in Ireland after a disastrous accident on his current job. When he meets Lara, his protective instinct compels him to defend her until she can find a permanent bodyguard. Romance soon blooms between them, but while Conn may keep Lara safe, can he rescue her from the deep emotional wounds holding her prisoner? Will she fulfill her destiny as High Guardian of apocalyptic secrets? Find the answers in this first book of a tantalizing new series, Romancing the Guardians.

Review:

“It’s so wonderful to pick up a romantic suspense-filled novel and fall in love with both main characters . . . the plot is brilliantly set up as it slides across genres and takes on its own life! . . .

Who are the Picts? Scotlands DNA finds an answer.


Fascinating post!

Scotland in my Heart

.A recently discovered DNA marker suggests that 10% of Scottish men are directly descended from the Picts.

Many generations of historians have puzzled over what used to be called the problem of the Picts. Where did they come from? Who were they? Why did they seem to disappear from history?

ScotlandsDNA has found a marker that strongly suggests that they did not fade from the map of our history, and that in fact the Picts are alive, well and living amongst us!

How is it possible to know this? How does the science work?

We all inherit a great deal of DNA from our parents, 6 billion letters in all, but some of it can be very informative about our deep ancestry. Fathers pass on Y chromosome DNA to their sons and fatherlines can be reliably traced back through thousands of years.

One of the reviews for the book.

What a perfect book to place on your coffee table! This collection of poetry is cleverly written, carefully planned, and hilarious. The author writes on a range of subjects seen from the perspective of a small dog and her owner. They muse about common activities like gardening, eating and cleaning. Some go back to explore history like “Homage” and “Sweet Briar” which discuss The Magna Carta and Snow White. Don’t know what…
