I'm concluding with my first encounter between Diarmuid and Aednat from Curse of the Healer. Enjoy :)
A king held no special power outside his own túath, but at a gathering this size, ruffling any fine feathers was to be avoided.
Aednat glanced at the warrior's lips. His eyes brightened, and she struggled to breath evenly as she held his gaze, anticipation making a mockery of her show of bravery. She wetted her lips, and his long nose flared ever so slightly.
"Aednat!" The sound of Sean's voice had her exhaling in relief. Her reprieve.
One dark brow quirked as if to question her thought.
"Here," she answered, irritated that she sounded desperate.
"A timely interruption." The warrior spoke in a quiet voice, his teeth white against the thick brown beard when he smiled. A satisfied smile. "But I'm a patient man."
She should have slapped his harder.
After the death of Brian Boru in 1014, a legend arose of a healer so great she could raise a man from the dead, with a power so strong it could make any warrior the next high king of Ireland...and to steal it away from her, he need only possess her.
Fated to be a healer…
Aednat has spent her entire life training to be the great healer, knowing she must remain alone. When she meets Diarmuid, the intense attraction she feels toward him shakes her resolve to
believe in such a legend. If she gives in to the passion he ignites in her, can she settle for being less?
Destined to be his…
Diarmuid of Clonascra is renowned for his bravery in battle. Only one thing daunts him: the prospect of taking a wife. The safest course would be to keep his distance from Aednat, the bold, headstrong healer who's far too tempting for his peace of mind. But his overking orders him to protect her from a group of craven warriors intent on kidnapping her to steal her power. What starts as duty for Diarmuid quickly transforms into something more. Aednat's power might be at risk, but so is his closed-off heart.
