Echoes of Ancient Dreams – A Novella (The High Kings of Da Derga)
“Echoes of Ancient Dreams is a sexy, funny, and beautifully written novella….” Leslie Hamilton, Author
Destry Caldbeck, smarting from being jilted at the altar, travels to Ireland on what was supposed to be her honeymoon. While visiting Dowth Mound, an ancient Neolithic site outside of Dublin, she encounters a group of students and their instructor. Dr. Conor Daderga is everything an Irishman should be; enormous, muscular, red-headed, and dead sexy. He’s also loud, booming, animated, and brilliant.
Destry goes exploring the mound while listening to Dr. Daderga’s lesson to his students in the background. Dowth is thought by scholars to be a burial mound and while nosing in the ancient chambers, Destry experiences ghostly voices from ages past. Rushing from the mound, she runs straight into Dr. Daderga.
Conor, having seen the gorgeous American with the bright eyes when she first arrived at the mound, is thrilled to have a chance encounter with her. Destry and Conor share a moment of complete, utter attraction before ancient incantations and ghostly visitations begin to lend clues to their past lives as an ancient king and queen, cruelly separated by an evil wizard. Soon, they find themselves caught up in a maelstrom of time shifts, landing them back in the Dark Ages of Ireland’s history where they discover a high king’s destiny.
