Excerpt


Memories of that unforgettable afternoon flooded him. They’d reconnected—physically, emotionally, spiritually—after long, tortuous weeks apart. A wondrous wave of love, lust, and longing crashed over him as he crushed her in his arms. Devoured her luscious lips. Caressed her beautiful body. Inhaled her forest fairy essence deep into his damaged soul. Tonight could very well be their last together. He would make it as memorable as that afternoon in the sacred cave. Find a quiet spot for them to be alone. Not too far from the Tribe. But far enough. He pulled her tight, pressed his body against hers, and whispered into her left ear. “By the Goddess, I yearn for you. Tonight, my love. A night to remember. Always.”


She raised her radiant face to his. In the depths of her verdant gaze, he glimpsed églantines—the soft pink wild roses of the Hazelwood Forest. Le Miroir aux Fées—the Mirrored Lake she’d defended to become a Priestess of Dana. Where she’d retrieved the orb he would use tomorrow to challenge the wizard. In her emerald eyes, Tristan saw the Forest of Brocéliande, where they were married in the Triple Trinity of their Celtic wedding. The white dove who had flown to save him, imprisoned in the dungeon of Tintagel. In the breadth of an instant, he saw countless images. His father’s castle, le Château d’ Or. A thatched cottage in an enchanted forest. The sacred scabbard she’d crafted for his Elven sword Azeldraig. He, the Dragon Knight of Avalon, whose sea raven soul was eternally entwined with hers. His Wild Rose. His green, golden goddess. His Emerald Fairy.

Author Biography


Enthralled with legends of medieval knights and ladies, dark fairy tales and fantasies about Druids, wizards and magic, Jennifer Ivy Walker always dreamed of becoming a writer. She fell in love with French in junior high school, continuing her study of the language throughout college, eventually becoming a high school teacher and college professor of French. As a high school teacher, she took her students every year to the annual French competition, where they performed a play she had written, "Yseult la Belle et Tristan la Bête"--an imaginative blend of the medieval French legend of "Tristan et Yseult" and the fairy tale "Beauty and the Beast", enhanced with fantasy elements of a Celtic fairy and a wicked witch. “The Emerald Fairy and the Dragon Knight”—the conclusion of “The Wild Rose and the Sea Raven” trilogy--is a blend of her love for medieval legends, the romantic French language, and paranormal fantasy. It is a paranormal fantasy adaptation of the medieval legend of "Tristan et Yseult" (Tristan and Isolde), interwoven with Arthurian myth, dark fairy tales from the enchanted Forest of Brocéliande, and otherworldly elements such as Avalonian Elves, Druids, forest fairies and magic. Explore her realm of Medieval French Fantasy. She hopes her novels will enchant you.

Title The Wild Rose and the Sea Raven (book 1 of The Wild Rose and the Sea Raven trilogy)

Author Jennifer Ivy Walker

Genre paranormal fantasy medieval romance

Publisher The Wild Rose Press


Book Blurb


In this fantasy retelling of a medieval French legend, Issylte is the rightful heir to the throne of Ireland. Yet, when the king remarries, she is forced to flee, finding shelter with a fairy witch in the heart of the enchanted Hazelwood Forest.


Fate leads her to the otherworldly realm of Avalon, where she becomes a gifted healer. When dark forces threaten, Issylte must choose between her new life as a priestess or the defense of her ravaged kingdom.


Tristan, a knight of the Round Table of King Arthur, must overcome his past and defend his uncle’s kingdom or risk losing not only his heritage, but the only family he has left. When he becomes a member of the legendary Tribe of Dana, an unexpected gift from an Archdruid might hold the key he seeks.


Haunted and hunted. Entwined by fate. Can Issylte and Tristan overcome the evil which threatens them both?


Excerpt


He opened the brilliant blue eyes that she’d seen in the vision.


As she gazed into them, the earth tilted. Her heart raced; her bearings were lost. In the depths of his eyes, she glimpsed a fountain in a forest. The turquoise waters of the ocean. An underground well encased by sacred stones. She, the forest fairy, was immersed in the blue waters of the warrior’s eyes, the waves emanating from him flowing through her, cleansing her. Beckoning her.


In Tristan’s eyes, Issylte glimpsed a black bird—a sea raven—soaring over an open sea, hovering now before her. A small dove fluttered in her breast, called forth from her soul. White wings unfurled as she took flight, rising into the azure sky alongside the black seabird—-floating together through the diaphanous clouds scattered across the vast ocean.


In the breadth of an instant, Issylte was bound to this warrior, the Blue Knight of Cornwall, as if fate had indeed entwined them. Through the windows of his eyes, she peered into his soul, her own blending with his, as if they were the forest and the ocean, encircled now within the three layers of protective stones, the holy trinity of sacred elements of the Goddess.

Title The Lady of the Mirrored Lake (book 2 of The Wild Rose and the Sea Raven trilogy)

Author Jennifer Ivy Walker

Genre paranormal fantasy medieval romance

Publisher The Wild Rose Press


Book Blurb


Hunted by the Black Widow Queen, Issylte--a healer with the verdant magic of the forest--must flee Avalon with the two finest knights in the Celtic realm, both wrongly accused of treason. The trio travels to Bretagne, where Issylte heals a critically injured wolf and obtains fiercely loyal, shapeshifting allies.


In mystical Brocéliande, Issylte becomes a warrior priestess of the Tribe of Dana and otherworldly mate of the Blue Knight of Cornwall, discovering with Tristan a passion that transcends all bounds. When she becomes the Lady of the Mirrored Lake, sworn to defend the sacred waters of the Goddess, Issylte must undertake a perilous quest to discover what priceless object lies hidden in its murky depths.


As a nascent evil emerges in a fetid cave, Issylte and Tristan must face a diabolical trio that threatens their lives, their love, and their kingdoms.


Enchanted. Enflamed. Entwined. Can their passion and power prevail?


Excerpt

Extending his hand, he asked gallantly, “Would you do me the honor of dancing with me, my lady?”


At his touch, a thrill of pleasure flowed up her arm and spread throughout her entire body. Lifting the folds of her deep green gown with her other hand as she stood, Issylte followed him to join the revelry. The wings of a white dove fluttered wildly in her breast.


Tristan walked backward, facing her, grinning from ear to ear, as he held her hand in his outstretched arm. He pulled her seductively to the dance floor without ever removing his intense eyes from her smile.


In Tristan’s embrace, Issylte’s breath felt shallow, her heartbeat rapid, fully aware of the hulking shoulders and enormous arms that held her close. His scent was the salty tang of the ocean, mingled with evergreens of the forest and an earthy, musky, distinctly male essence that called to her. Despite the open doors, the room was very warm, and the heady fragrance of him, combined with the sumptuous food and superb wine—Issylte swooned and lowered her face to his chest, longing to touch the dark hair she knew was hidden under his deep blue tunic.

Excerpt

She held the églantine to her nose, inhaling the delicate fragrance with a smile of wonder. “Thank you, my love. It reminds me of the nightingale in the woods of Avalon. You never cease to amaze me.” Gratitude shifted to empathy as she intently searched his face. “How does it feel to come home?”


Tristan looked out at the cerulean sea. The blue waters of Lyonesse. His home. “I feel…conflicted. Tremendous guilt and grief, mingled with incredible joy.” He raised the hand in which she held the wild rose, lifting the pink blossom to his nose. He inhaled its soothing floral fragrance—Issylte’s essence—to ease his heavy heart. “When I saw the edge of the forest where Goron held me that day…I relived the horrors…” A violent shudder shook his body.


Issylte wrapped her arms around his waist and nestled her head against his thundering chest.


He kissed the top of her head, cocooning her in loving arms. “But now…with you here…I remember the love.” He rocked her in his arms as fond memories flowed, washing away the sadness and sorrow. “My mother’s tender touch…my sister’s beautiful smile…my father’s noble face. All the happiness we shared here. All the laughter. All the love.”


Issylte raised her tear-stained face to beam at him. “Love conquers hate. It is the Goddess’ greatest gift. And I am eternally grateful that She has healed your broken heart.”


He kissed her. His Wild Rose. His green golden goddess. His Emerald Fairy. “Aye, my love. She has. Through you.”

A note from the author:


“Winter Solstice in the Crystal Castle”, an upcoming novel by author Jennifer Ivy Walker, is a steamy romance between a fiery French princess descended from Vikings and the solitary knight who suffers an impossible love for her, will be published later this year.


“Flames of Flamenco”-- the story of a talented artist and flamenco dancer who melts the frozen heart of an American studying in the City of Light—is a sizzling romance set in Montmartre, the bohemian heart of Paris. (In the author picture, Jennifer Ivy Walker is standing beside the famous Montmartre cabaret, Au Lapin Agile, where the story “Flames of Flamenco” takes place.)
