Amidst whispers of pacts with the Devil, they pair up to wrestle the secret from the house.
My next novella, Mugs and Monasteries, is also due for publication by Musa Publishing. Again this is a Gothic romance, but this time it's set in my home country of Ireland. The Burren, to be precise. Evie Bourke is studying the orchids growing in the area, and meets alpaca farmer, Aiden Dunne. Not just an alpaca farmer, Aiden is hunting for answers to his family's past -- that of missing prior, Eamonn Dunne. Cue some very hair raising moments...
When orchid hunter, Evie Bourke stumbles across a near deserted monastery deep in the Burren, she has no idea she’s the first person alive to have seen it. All she knows is that life went a bit strange and was getting more bizarre by the minute.
Meeting alpaca farmer Aiden Dunne over a pint of Guinness, she is struck by his resemblance, yet to whom, she can’t quite remember. Aiden is searching for Munster Abbey for his family was connected to it for generations, culminating in the disappearance of his relative, the then Prior.
What happened all those years ago? Who or what is ‘the Wanderer’ and, more to the point, what does he want?
Fast forward two years and he’s the judge on a new dance show – one where she's a contestant.
Even though sparks fly whenever they are together, Jonathon steadfastly keeps her at arm’s length, which suits Pippa just fine because she’s still getting over the betrayal of the last time she had a relationship with the boss.
But will they be able to go back to their previous status now the line has been crossed?
