A love beyond time…
College student Shannon Rose Grey plans to leave her old life behind and make a fresh start in Ireland. A chance meeting with handsome Irishman Ian Galloway only confirms that decision. But when her participation in a May Day celebration accidentally unleashes the power of the old ritual of Beltane, she finds herself in ancient Ireland with a man named Lasairian—who looks exactly like the modern-day Ian.
Shannon builds a life with Lasairian in that strange and ancient time, learning everything from building a house to herding cattle, but soon the day comes when she has the chance to return to her own time. She will have to choose whether to stay in the past with Lasairian, return to the present without him, or persuade him to come back with her.

Will his love be strong enough to overcome magic?
In ancient Ireland, a young man called Anlon works as a servant for the king’s finest warriors, in hopes of one day being allowed to join them. But one evening he meets a woman of the Sidhe.

But the tribe of Men soon learns of Anlon’s apparent capture by the Sidhe. This destroys the fragile truce which has existed between the two cultures and soon an all-out war looms between them.
In order to prevent a disaster, Scahta casts an enchantment over Anlon to make him forget his time among the Sidhe. If Anlon’s love for Scahta proves stronger than her spell of forgetfulness, they will once again have a chance at love.

When an enchantress finds her life and all the secrets she guards threatened, only a Champion of Men can save her.
In ancient Ireland, the woman known as Rioghan keeps a fragile peace with the nearby settlement of Men by serving as a midwife and healer. She has met the King’s Champion, the handsome Donaill, more than once, and finds him to be one of the few to deal fairly with the Sidhe—or Little People, as the Men derisively call them.
But when some of the Men learn that Rioghan guards more than just secrets, and indeed knows the whereabouts of the Sidhe’s golden treasure, she will have to place her trust in Donaill in order to save her own people and, perhaps, find a future for herself beyond the loneliness of the forest.

The key to winning her hand is simple—he just needs to figure out what women want.
Niamh travels to the late summer festival known as the Lughnasa Fair, a great gathering of the kingdoms. There she meets Bryan, a member of the Fianna, a group of the king’s finest fighting men. He wishes her to be his “Lughnasa Sister”—his mate for the fourteen days of the Fair—but Niamh wants an offer of marriage. And the offer must come from a man who can answer her riddle: What three things does a woman want most from a man?
Yet Bryan has little time to think on Niamh’s riddle, for the Fair is plagued by a supernatural creature: the puca—a malevolent, destructive spirit in the shape of a black horse with fiery red eyes. Putting aside other matters, Bryan and Niamh must work to solve the mystery of the puca and save the people of the Fair—and their future—together.

What woman wouldn’t want to be worshipped like a goddess?
Bridget Christine Connelly visits a yard sale and finds a very unusual piece of jewelry—it is a torque, a horseshoe-shaped piece of twisted gold, with delicately worked women’s faces at either end. When she takes it home and slides it around her neck, it takes her back through time to the man who made it—the tall and handsome Celtic warrior named Ailin.
At first, the newly single Christine is happy to be worshipped as a goddess, for the torque had been made to adorn the neck of Brighid, the goddess of fire. But as her love for Ailin grows, she wishes to be desired for herself, not for the goddess he believes her to be. And as her hold on the past grows weaker and weaker, she must decide whether to risk death in the past or a return to the future…with or without Ailin.
