*** Author Spotlight *** Meet Award-Winning and Bestselling @m_morganauthor and her Legends of the F
It’s our pleasure to introduce you to Award-Winning and Bestselling Author Mary Morgan. Not only are we in love with her stories but she has such a humble heart, we are so thankful to make her acquaintance. Here she is, along with her Legends of the Fenian Warriors series. Take it away, Mary:
If you’ve read my bio, then you’ll know how much I love Scotland and Ireland. The land calls to me daily, and this is my main source of writing inspiration. Since I cannot live in this lush landscape filled with myths and legends, I create fictional stories based on these countries and their culture.
I always thought of myself as a writer, but didn’t pursue this passion until later in my life. I’m a firm believer that you’re never too old to try something new or find your true destiny. I’m ever the optimist.
And being a writer has proven to be the most challenging and demanding jobs I’ve ever done. I’m my own boss! A task-master! Here’s a glimpse into my daily routine:
My day starts at 5am. Yes, I’m a morning person (though I’d love to be a night owl), so when my feet hit the ground, I’m moving. After breakfast, I spend several hours marketing, promoting and answering emails. Afterwards, it’s a walk, yoga, or a bike ride. I adore nature and fresh air. I’m usually entrenched in my writing cave by noon and work until 5-5:30. Sundays are my rest day, but you’ll find me on the couch with my current work-in-progress doing edits. This is also a day that I like to cook and bake.
I truly feel blessed to be doing something that fills my soul. Writing is like breathing for me.
Five fun facts about me:
1. I have touched the ruins of Urquhart Castle in Scotland last year, which is the core of my first series, the Order of the Dragon Knights.
2. I wandered the halls and grounds of Trinity College in Dublin, Ireland, like my heroine, Fiona O’Quinlan in DRAGON KNIGHT’S AXE, Order of the Dragon Knights, Book 3.
3. I kissed the Blarney Stone in Ireland and almost slipped backwards.
4. When I was eleven, I met the actor, Jonathan Frid, who played Barnabas Collins on the gothic television soap opera, Dark Shadows.
5. I’ve gone to a Beauty and the Beast convention, the television series starring Ron Perlman and Linda Hamilton.

Title TRIAL OF A WARRIOR, Legends of the Fenian Warriors, Book 3
Author Mary Morgan
Genre Time Travel Fantasy Romance
Publisher The Wild Rose Press, Inc.
"You met them in the Order of the Dragon Knights. Now, journey to the realm of the Fae and witness their legends!”
A warrior sentenced to die.
On trial for breaking a supreme Fae law, Fenian Warrior, Liam MacGregor has no regrets. He is prepared to accept his sentence—even if it means his death. However, freedom comes in an unexpected manner, and brings with it certain dangers as he travels through the Veil of Ages.
A princess honor-bound to remain hidden.
Princess Abela might be a priestess and the daughter of royalty, but that doesn’t prevent her from doing the unimaginable. She sacrifices duty and honor to set free the man who captured her heart so many years ago. No matter the severity of his crimes, she cannot let Liam die.
A rescue that will bring about a war and divide a kingdom!
In their quest to secure a treaty to forestall Liam’s death sentence, they must fight their desires for one another, as well as the Fenian Warriors sent to capture them.
A tremor of longing to be kissed filled Abela. She should flee this instant, but her feet refused to listen to her mind.
Liam reached out and tucked a stray curl behind her ear. His finger trailed down the side of her neck, and she shuddered. “You have not answered me.”
“Yes,” she replied rapidly.
The smile in his eyes contained a sensuous flame, and she was drawn to him. A soft breeze billowed around them. She ached to press her mouth against his. Just one kiss.
As if reading her thoughts, Liam cupped her chin and stroked his thumb over her bottom lip. “Your mouth begs to be kissed, princess.”
She swallowed and did the unthinkable. “Then kiss me, Liam MacGregor.”
His groan echoed around them as he took possession of her mouth. The kiss sent the pit of her stomach into a wild swirl of delicious sensations. Abela’s body yearned to touch him, so she wrapped her arms around his neck. The contact of his skin against her chest ignited a burning desire for more.
Liam grasped her firmly around the waist with one arm and deepened the kiss. When his silken tongue sought entry, she opened fully to the seduction, tasting wine, apples, and his own scent. His moan resonated deep within her, and she found her body responding to a rhythm as old as the land they lived upon.
Never did Abela imagine the power behind a kiss—seductive, enchanting, shattering, and she craved more.

QUEST OF A WARRIOR, Legends of the Fenian Warriors, Book 1
By Mary Morgan
Publisher: The Wild Rose Press, Inc.
Genre: Paranormal, Romance, Fantasy, Mythology, Irish
“You met them in the Order of the Dragon Knights. Now, journey to the realm of the Fae and witness their legends!" Fenian Warrior, Conn MacRoich has traveled the earth for thousands of years, guarding the realm between mortal and Fae. His deeds are legendary. Yet, one mistake will force him on a journey to fix a broken time-line. However, on Conn’s quest, he must face a human female who will eventually bring this ancient warrior to his knees. When Ivy O’Callaghan inherits her uncle’s estate, she never imagines there will be more secrets to unravel, including the one she hides from the world. With the help of a mysterious stranger, she learns to trust and step out of the shadows. However, nothing prepares Ivy when she learns Conn's true identity. As the loom of fate weaves a thread around the lovers from two different worlds, will the sacrifices they make lead them to love? Or will their secrets destroy and separate them forever?
“Intoxication can unleash the beast within a Fae.” ~Chronicles of the Fae
Conn fought the bolt of desire spearing a path throughout his body. Her touch spoke volumes—an invitation to taste. Never had he longed to kiss a human like this wee lass. His heart beat loudly, and he found himself unable to move. She was a Goddess of the moonlight. It danced off her face and hair, and he trembled before her. Ivy’s fingers traced down his cheek and across his lips. He was helpless to contain the growl that escaped from his mouth.
The rush of passion overtook him, and Conn slammed the door on his mind. Grasping Ivy around the waist, he hoisted her up on top of the bridge. Her lips parted on a sigh, and he lowered his mouth to feast on something he dared not take. The first brush of her soft lips against his own ignited a hunger he could no longer contain. Taking her moan deep into him, Conn glorified in the sensation of her mouth—one filled with a honeyed sweetness.
The Fae warrior became just a man for the first time. Something primal burst within him. Emotions he had never felt left him dizzy, spiraling to a physical plane. He craved them all. His lips seared a course down her neck, to her throat, and then recaptured the velvet warmth of her mouth.

OATH OF A WARRIOR, Legends of the Fenian Warriors, Book 2
By Mary Morgan
Publisher: The Wild Rose Press
Genre: Historical Paranormal Fantasy Scotland
"You met them in the Order of the Dragon Knights. Now, journey to the realm of the Fae and witness their legends!"
Fenian Warrior, Rory MacGregor’s love conquests are legendary, but he has never spoken of the one mortal female who captured his heart. After his dark secret is finally revealed, he is ordered to return and seal the wounds left open by her death. Yet, he finds the timeline altered and swears an oath to rewrite fate, even if it brings about his own death.
Erina MacIntyre is known for her healing herbs and love charms. Determined to aid others, she refuses to listen to the whispers that call her a witch. When a Highlander steps forth into her path, he ignites a thread of strange familiarity and sparks a flame of desire she is unable to control.
Can the destiny of two lovers find love once more among the ashes of death and betrayal? Or will history repeat itself, leaving a scorching path of destruction for both mortals and Fae alike?
“Erina, mo ghrá,” he groaned, taking her mouth with savage intensity. She tasted of honey and spices, filling him completely and easing the torment that continually plagued him.
Breaking free, he placed his hands on either side of the door. Giving her all of him required something more from Erina. Without the assurance of accepting him for what he was, Rory would be a lost man.
“Are ye certain ye want to ken all of me? I want ye as sure as the sun rises and sets over the land each day, but ken this, Erina—there is more to me than a simple bedding. There are things about me that might frighten ye. What I’m about to share with ye may cause ye to question my existence, or worse, my sanity.”
Her laugh was seductive and soothing as she wrapped her arms around his neck. “From the moment ye stepped through those trees that first day, I realized ye were not like any man I had encountered. It was as if the trees parted and ye came forth from inside them.” She brushed her fingers along his brow. “For one, ye have the most mesmerizing eyes and they shift colors.”
“And the second?”
Her face turned a rosy glow, yet, she held his gaze. “I thought your body chiseled from the old Gods, especially with all the markings on your back and arms.”
His gaze swept over hers. “I am nae God, Erina, though some would call me a demon.”
She traced a finger down along his arm and shook her head. “Ye are not a monster, but I am nae fool. Ye are not like other men, Rory. I have seen the markings on your body elsewhere.” Her finger curved around his shoulder and he trembled. “They are similar to the ones on the standing stones carved by the ancients.”
Rory fought the tide of emotions sweeping through him. She had come to the conclusion all on her own. “And ye would not flee if I told ye I was one of those ancients? One where the bards wove tales of giants who lived thousands of years ago among your own people? Others would call the story incredulous and filled with heathen words.” He held his breath, fearing her reply.
The smile she gave him speared straight to his soul. “Nae. I would not flee.”
