A Pleasant Read 10 July 2003
By I LOVE ROMANCES! - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I always look forward to Janeen O'Kerry's romances. They are all so entertaining and special.
This book was o.k. Not one of my favorites. The reason I say this is because I find the King to be too passive, he is not a strong character in this book. I felt like he was a secondary character and Keavy is the main character. We get to know Keavy's maid better than the king.
I would have liked to see more detail with their physical relationship. There was not alot of romance I found and I didn't like the part when Keavy cuts off her hair and dresses as a boy. Everone knows it's her anyway. What was the purpose?
I did enjoy the read but didn't find this to be the best of the series...

Special love story 2 July 2003
By Harriet Klausner - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
In ancient Eire, several years ago Keavy shared a magical encounter with a golden eagle that she believed was actually the man that fate intended to be her eternal mate. Over time, the beautiful Keavy rejected suitors waiting for her mate to arrive. However, as she approaches her twenty-fifth birthday, her parents have had it with her rejecting all males. They give her a choice to marry a person they have selected or be exiled into servitude. Reluctantly she agrees to wed the stranger from a foreign land though her future spouse too does not want to marry either. They agree to a marriage of convenience.
However, her groom fails to inform Keavy of a custom of his people. The bride spends her first night with the king and not her spouse. King Aengus finds he is attracted to the newcomer and cannot help but stare at her with his eagle like eyes. As they begin to fall in love, she wonders if he is that eagle from years ago even while both worries that their actions could lead to war between their respective homelands.
The seventh of eight book in the Celtic Journeys series, MAIDEN OF THE WINDS at first makes the lead female protagonist seem too much a paragon as Keavy seems to have no flaws. When she travels to her new home, Aengus makes her real and turns the tale into a delightful romantic fantasy with two warm characters struggling between love and duty. Fans of the series will enjoy the latest entry, but need patience for once the prime duo meet, the novel turns magical.

I liked this , but not only for the usual reasons 21 May 2004
By C. L. Munson - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This romance was interesting to me because of the historical aspects and because of the pacifist leanings of the heroine. It is unusual for a romance to deal with these things except on a personal level, but this one made the personal political and I appreciated that alot.
As far as romance goes it is good, not fantastic, the writing is well done. It is not a super physical hot romance, that is not the main focus.

less than average Celtic tale..... 12 Aug. 2008
By retroredux - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This was my first book by this author.

This books premise-a King who must follow ancient tradition and bed each new bride on their wedding night-is a hard storyline to do tastefully. This book just glossed over the act of the hero meeting then bedding the heroine,who is pretty much being forced into either submitting to the tradition, or being cast out by her family and made a servant. This is not what makes for an enjoyable story to me and I just quit in disgust.

Not recommended-2 stars.
