Scattered Seeds by Julie DohertyWatch the Book Trailer HERE: BOOK TRAILER

In 18th century Ireland, a drought forces destitute Ulstermen Edward and Henry McConnell to assume false names and escape to America with the one valuable thing they still own–their ancestors’ gold torc.

Edward must leave love behind. Henry finds it in the foul belly of The Charming Hannah, only to lose it when an elusive trader purchases his sweetheart’s indenture.

With nothing but broken hearts, a lame ox, and the torc they cannot sell without invoking an ancient curse, they head for the wilderness of Cumberland County, where all hope of survival rests upon getting the seed in the ground. Under constant threat of French and Indian attack, they endure crushing toil and hardship, and by summer, they have wheat for their reward—and news of Henry’s lost love. They emerge from isolation and follow her trail to Philadelphia, unaware that her cruel new master awaits them there, his heart set on obtaining the priceless torc they protect.

In twelfth century Scotland, it took a half-Gael with a Viking name to restore the clans to their rightful lands. Once an exile, Somerled the Mighty now dominates the west. He’s making alliances, expanding his territory, and proposing marriage to the Manx princess.

It’s a bad time to fall for Breagha, a torc-wearing slave with a supernatural sense of smell.

Somerled resists the intense attraction to a woman who offers no political gain, and he won’t have a mistress making demands on him while he’s negotiating a marriage his people need. Besides, Breagha belongs to a rival king, one whose fresh alliance Somerled can’t afford to lose.

It’s when Breagha vanishes that Somerled realizes just how much he needs her. He abandons his marriage plans to search for her, unprepared for the evil lurking in the shadowy recesses of Ireland—a lustful demon who will stop at nothing to keep Breagha for himself.
