Today’s featured author is the awesome Kerrigan Byrne!
Hello there! I write both historical romance, historical mystery, and a little bit of romantic suspense when I can fit it in!
BOTH! But I can live without tea, I CANNOT live without Coffee.
3. Name one thing on your bucket list.
Hmmm. To spend the night in a haunted Celtic castle.
4. Do you have pets?
Unfortunately, no. But I plan on getting a dog soon! Suggestions?
5. When I wake up every morning I … groan and wish I could go back to bed!
6. Weirdest or unique thing you own.
My playstation4, which I am addicted to games like Uncharted, Assassin’s Creed, and Last of Us. (I’ve heard that’s unique for a woman my age)
7. Do you have any hobbies or particular skills?
A very particular set of skills… Kidding, excuse the Taken reference. Let’s see. I can quote you weird historical facts like when the zipper was invented and put together “assemble yourself” furniture better than anyone I know! Other than that, my hobbies are eating cheese and anything related to sweat pants that isn’t actually sweating.
8. What do you hope readers will experience or gain when reading your stories?
To be honest, I get that question a lot, and I’m never exactly comfortable with any answer I come up with. I want my readers to fall in love. With my heroes and heroines. With themselves. With history. With possibility. I just want them to be entertained, but also to maybe feel a little better about life, their past, and their future, too. A tall order, no?
Meet Kerrigan Byrne
Kerrigan has done many things to pay the bills, from law enforcement to belly dance instructor. Now she’s finally able to have the career she’d decided upon at thirteen when she announced to her very skeptical family that she was going to “grow up to be a romance novelist.” Whether she’s writing about Celtic Druids, Victorian bad boys, or brash Irish FBI Agents, Kerrigan uses her borderline-obsessive passion for history, her extensive Celtic ancestry, and her love of Shakespeare in almost every story.
He is noble, notorious, and takes no prisoners…
Strong as a Viking. Handsome as Adonis. Rich as Midas. Collin “Cole” Talmage, Duke of Trewyth, is the stuff that legends are made of. He’s the English Empire’s golden son–until fate has its way with him. Cole’s family is killed and his closest comrade betrays him on the battlefield, leaving him gravely injured. But Cole is not one to dwell on misfortune. He is a man of duty, honor–and desire. And now he’s ready for the fight of his lifetime…
Imogen Pritchard is a beautiful lass who works in a hospital by day and as a serving maid at night. Years ago, when she was young and penniless, she ended up spending a scandalous night with Cole, whose tormented soul was matched only by his earth-shattering passion. Imogen entered a marriage of convenience–one that left her a wealthy widow–but she never forgot Cole. Now that her long-lost lover has turned up in her hospital, injured and with no memory of her, Imogen is torn: Is it a blessing or a curse that their past remains a secret to Cole, even as his new passion for her leaves him wanting to protect and possess her…at all costs?
