Alainn is counseled to hide her magical abilities, but how can she when dark forces rise up to threaten not only the O'Brien Clan, but Alainn and the life of the Chieftain's beloved, but forbidden nephew, Killian O’Brien, a man Alainn has loved as long as she can remember?

The Witch's Daughter
Healer, witch, and commoner Alainn McCreary battles valiantly to control her growing magical powers and to ignore her doomed yearning for noble Killian O’Brien, a man who is far above her station and betrothed to a noble, dark-eyed Scottish beauty. Alone, she continues her quest to break the bitter curse that dooms not only the powerful O’Brien Clan but also Alainn and Killian’s future happiness.

Threatened by dark forces, a powerful chieftain, and a suspicious priest, loyal, valiant and handsomely virile Killian vows to fight at his beloved Alainn’s side even as he realizes time is running out for both of them.

The Witch’s Daughter, set in the mystical landscape of ancient Ireland, weaves romance, adventure and the supernatural into a sensual tale of love and longing that darkly whispers “What wouldn’t you do for love?”

All I wanted was to raise something demonic from the Nolands to test my wizardly mettle, but I got a lot more than I bargained for. Not from the beastie, that was kind of a dud, but from my unwanted guest.

Vamps from the east are in town, and they have strange peccadilloes. They aren't here to sample the local delicacies though, they have an altogether more sinister purpose.

Before my visitor had chance to get nasty, we were kidnapped, and torture of the very painful kind was on the menu. Served him right, me not so much.

But us magical misfits stick together, and soon there's a war raging that will tear our world apart. Vampires are pitted against vampires, wizards and witches unite against a common enemy—mainly because there are goodies in it for them—and I try to stop getting all my important bits chopped off in nasty ways.

Just another day in the life of a poor wizard.

Hi, I'm Arthur "The Hat" Salzman. Gangster. Wizard. A bit hurty.
