Tullamore Castle, Ireland, is an enchanted place where the unexpected happens. Phantom lovers materialize in haunted beds and a lonely griffin patrols the ramparts, waiting to reclaim its mate.
And that’s just the beginning.
For the adventure of a lifetime, Maeve dé Burgo visits Tullamore to study genealogy. Through a magical act and time travel, she becomes embroiled in a dangerous medieval romance and the unfinished life of her ancestor. Maeve gets thrown back in time to be captured, ravished and cherished as a war chief’s prize.
Ronan O’Griofa is a griffin-shifter, the most loyal of creatures. He’s been trapped in limbo as the avenging guardian of Tullamore since 1332 and longs to be free. When the soul of his wife returns to the castle, he’s granted the privilege of becoming a man for one day to be her lover, win her heart and remind Maeve of a bond strong enough to last an eternity.
