More About the Author

As a nice, sane break from the drama and fast pace of working as a registered nurse in an intensive care unit, Margo Maguire returned to college to study history, and fell in love. Writing about the historical characters she encountered in her classes was a good way to unwind from a crazy day in the unit. She soon started creating her own fictional characters and putting them into historical settings.

Margo is the author of twenty historical romance novels. Her books have been published in numerous languages, and have even come out in Japan as manga--animated books. She is the mother of three grown children and lives with her scientist husband in southern Michigan.

Margo participates in Romance Writers of America's yearly Literacy Signing, and does local book signings with every new release. She has given talks on writing and research techniques, and is a featured author at http://jauntyquills.com/, a blog she shares with eleven other romance authors. She is a regular contributor to the Avon Romance forums and sends out bulletins with Fresh Fiction and Eye on Romance.

There is only one way Brogan's clan may defeat their enemy - they must find and retrieve the Blood Stones, which have been hidden in different times and places. Brogan's search takes him to England approximately 900 centuries into the future where he cannot use any of his sorcery lest he be discovered by his enemies before he has found the precious talisman.

But in his quest to find the magical stone, he finds something even more precious - Sarah Granger. She stirs him in ways no woman in his own time ever has. If he didn't know better, he would say she was his céile mate.

Sarah doesn't know quite what to think of the nearly naked stranger who washed up on their beach. She does know he isn't telling her everything, although she finds she trusts him in spite of that knowledge. And she can't deny the way her body responds to the mysterious man...

I absolutely loved A Warrior's Taking, the first book in Margo Maguire's The Sorcerer series! Although this is the first time I have read any of Maguire's work, I am captivated by both the story and her writing talent!

Sarah is an admirable heroine, persevering in the face of adversity time and again, and never losing her empathy for others even as she finds herself scorned by her peers and abandoned to an unfortunate fate after the death of her father. Having finally found a true home caring for her late cousin's family, she will do anything to protect and care for the children left in her care when they are orphaned, no matter the sacrifice or hardship for herself.

Brogan is the kind of hero women fantasize about - strong, mysterious, noble, and still a good bit roguish in all the ways that count! Fighting his intense attraction to Sarah, he is determined to do right by her. His plan?

Margo Maguire does not disappoint in her latest novel mostly because her main characters are really likeable. The story is a bit mystery, magic and time travel.

The heroine is long suffering Sarah Granger. She is governess to two girls who, by the way, are also likeable The family receives word that her charge's father is killed in battle fighting Napoleon. Sarah has no family and is frankly very worried what will happen to her make shift family; she dearly loves them. A distant cousin of her employer is coming to take possession of their home, Ravenfield.

The hero, Brogan MacLochlainn, is a Druzai chieftain's son who lives 900 years in the past. He, like other Druzai, can perform magic. When his father is murdered by the evil sorceress Eilinora, he goes on a quest to discover a magical blood stone which, when united with the other stone in his family's possession, can defeat evil. Unfortunately, the stone has been hidden 900 years into the future somewhere in Ravenfield.

When our hero and heroine meet he is washed ashore, nearly drowned. The family takes him into their home and sparks fly. There is instant attraction but Brogan is on a mission to find the stone, however he cannot help but be drawn into the affairs of this family. He genuinely likes them and wonders why there are no protectors for them. He wrestles with a desire to see Sarah wed to a good human, (he calls them Tuaths) and keeping her for himself.

Brogan is flabbergasted that Tuath males have not offered for Sarah. He decides he will boost her self esteem by buying her a beautiful dress for an upcoming musical soiree so she can attract these ridiculous Tauths. He also engages in some harmless flirtation with her, after all he believes she needs the practice.

I just finished reading 'A Warrior's Taking' and absolutely loved the refreshing original storyline intermingling magic, romance, and mystery with a bit of humor. Of course, a magic wielding Warrior who speaks with a Scottish brogue and mutters the occasional Gaelic word or phrase is a fantastic addition to the story. Needless to say, I'm anxious to get started on 'Temptation of the Warrior'.

The premise of the Druzai, Dragheens, sitheans, and the mystical, magical world of Coruain is a fantasy lover's delight. I'd love to read more about the home land of Brogan and the circumstances that lead up to the desperate quest to seek the brigha-stone. Just a suggestion, but perhaps a spin off series dedicated to the magical world of Coruain. I'd definitely be an instant fan!

I thoroughly enjoyed the storyline and felt it somewhat reminiscent of Moning's Druid Kelter line. After all, what girl can resist an alpha male Scotsman with a magical lineage who happens to be over six feet and speaks Gaelic with the resonance of a buttery burr?

I bought this book at a garage sale without reading the back to see what it was about. I am not into books about sorcery or other worlds, so I almost just threw it in the bag to donate to the library without reading it. But I decided to at least look to see what others had to say about it on Amazon before I did. I want to thank you all for the reviews that made me decide to read it. I am very glad I did, I liked Brogan and Sarah very much and I enjoyed the story too. About all I might have liked... to make it even better, was to read a little at the end of the book, about Sarah and Brogan's arrival and reception back in Coruain. But other than that it was a very enjoyable read.
