Maeve Greyson writes paranormal romances with a Celtic twist from her cozy home not too far from Kentucky Lake. Her writing partner, Jasper the dog and her husband of over thirty years takes care of all those annoying real life issues like laundry, cooking and cleaning so Maeve can concentrate on pouring her dreams into the keyboard when she gets home from the steel mill job each day. Tucked away in the middle of a five acre wood, Maeve listens to the wind whispering through the trees and hears characters demanding to be acknowledged.
Her debut novel, BEYOND A HIGHLAND WHISPER is available now from The Wild Rose Press and other online retailers. March 2012 brings two new paranormal romances from Maeve. THE HIGHLANDER’S FURY from The Wild Rose Press on March 2nd and ETERNITY’S MARK from Kensington’s Brava line on March 27th. ETERNITY’S MARK won Kensington Brava and RT Book Reviews 2011 Writing with the Stars Contest.

“By the power of blaze,
By the power of flame,
Death shall no longer have any claim.”
~Draecna Esme from Eternity’s Mark
This is the spell uttered by a young female Draecna granting Hannah an extended life matching Taggert’s years. Even though Taggart is a hybrid –half Erastaedian sorcerer and half Draecna – the powerful DNA of the mystical dragons grants Taggart a life so long that some would consider him immortal. Female Draecna are born with the Fire of Immortality, the magical ability to add an almost endless number of years to the short lives of mere mortals. This precious gift is bestowed only on a select few, those proving without a doubt they deserve such an opportunity.
Taggart couldn’t bear the thought of losing Hannah after a mortal’s short lifespan together. So he asked her if she wanted to live forever. You see, there’s a catch to the Draecna Fire of Immortality. If the recipient doesn’t desire the extended gift –the flames dissipate into powerless curls of smoke. So, Taggart needed Hannah to yearn for an endless life…and at first, she wasn’t too sure. Because such a great gift also means great sacrifice: watching loved ones grow old and die.
How about you? Would you want to live forever? Would you accept the gift of immortality?

About the Book:
Sacred blood flows in Hannah MacPherson’s veins; she’s just too hardheaded to realize it. After losing a husband to the Iraq war, she’s squirreled herself away in a tiny town where she snarls at any man who gives her a second glance. But Taggart de Gaelson knows more about Hannah than she could ever fathom. As her assigned protector, Taggart’s grown tired of Hannah ignoring his messages from Scotland—and now he’s come to retrieve her.
The balance of the Continuum depends on a race of sacred creatures who maintain the strength of the portals. Only Hannah’s touch can release the hatchlings from their eggs. Sworn to protect Hannah from others who lust for control of the beasts, Taggart must win her trust. But as he battles at her side, can he protect his heart?
