She carried the seed of rebirth, so what had fallen would rise again.The ghost of her ancestor sent Druidess Tanwen from Britannia to the strange foreign tribe of the Caledonii to wed Brude, son of the chief. But Brude is not about to marry a druidess, even though she has the most beautiful body he’s ever seen. Never mind if his blood boils and he can’t stop thinking of her. He will not wed her. Yet the fate of Caledonia rests in the hands of the Warrior and the Druidess. Will they put their differences aside to fulfill their destiny.

Ashira Datya’s Review

I absolutely loved Druid Bride. While it is a work of fiction, there are historical events that shaped this story and that made the future Historian in me a very happy camper. Druid Bride begins with Tanwen, a beautiful young Druid woman accepting her destiny and leaving her home to marry the son of a Caledonian chief so that they can unite the native people and drive the Romans, who are occupying Britannia; killing innocent people, raping women and destroying villages back to Rome.

Brude, the son of the chief, does not wish to marry a Druid and does whatever he can to avoid marrying her, even after he promises her while he is drunk that he will marry her.

The various tribes of the native people gather together at Brude's camp to form a pact to fight together against the Romans; Tanwen has foreseen that the Romans can be defeated if the tribes work together. When Tanwen witnesses something she wasn't supposed to, she is taken; Brude races after her, realizing that he actually does love her.

I give Druid Bride 3 Tea Cups; the story was well researched, well written and fairly historically accurate as far as fictionalized novels go. I was very entertained while reading this novel and it made me forget about things going on around me. That being said, I give Druid Bride a heat rating of a 1; the story is not very graphic and the author tends to use every day words for the genitalia.

Overall, I loved Druid Bride and recommend it to anyone who loves to read a story with a bit of history and mythology.

3 Tea Cups!
