Book Description

At twenty-one, after two Seasons with no takers, Theadosia Barrington should have been grateful to snare Nigel Cosgrove. The earl-to-be was a blue-eyed Adonis, a true catch-and surely the incident in Covent Garden was exaggerated. And yet, upon her arrival at Cashel Cosgrove, Thea found herself more intrigued by the Irish castle's legend, that of the tragic Ros Drumcondra. "The Black Falcon" he was called. Party Gypsy, part Celt, the warrior had been conquered by betrayal alone. His ghost was still reputed to wander these halls, making women tremble with fear and desire-for who could resist those burnished copper eyes? Hadn't he stolen away the betrothed of Cian Cosgrove, made the woman his love slave? If only Thea herself could suffer such a fate. If only magic were a reality. If only that Gypsy woman had spoken the truth, and Thea was a woman out of time, the one meant to be...THE FALCON'S BRIDE

2.0 out of 5 stars Don't bother 19 July 2014
By H
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Pretty much a load of old tosh. I used to read 'bodice rippers' such as this when I was a schoolgirl (many years ago). I thought it might be something along the lines of a Barbara Erskine but absolutely not a patch on her. There was no explanation as to what triggered the time travel, though perhaps you were supposed to believe it was the bird! Too much throbbing member (and such euphemisms) and nudity in completely daft settings. The story rambled.The only reason I gave it two stars because I did not hate it per se but I certainly did not enjoy it and the 'bounders' got their comuppence!. Ended up skim reading it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Story by Dawn Thompson 20 Dec. 2006
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The Falcon's Bride is a love story--of a mother's sacrifice for her son, as well as the passion between Roc and Theo.

Theo Barrington travels to Ireland with the intention of marrying Nigel Cosgrove. While Theo has her doubts, she knows this match will be a good one for her father's finances. Enter one old Gypsy lady who tells Theo she's the Black Falcon's bride. But the Black Falcon is a legend--half Irish lord and half Gypsy, not a real man, and dead long ago. Still, at the Winter Solstice, Theo is drawn to a 5,000-year-old passage tomb called Newgrange, where she is transported to the arms of Ros Dromcondra, the Black Falcon. And the passion begins.

Talk about a delicioso hero--Ros Drumcondra fills the bill and more. Yum. Theo Barrington is strong enough as well as smart enough to be his match in both wits and passion. The Falcon's Bride is a compelling story you won't want to put down. Every offering from this talented author gets better and better. This book is definitely a keeper!

5.0 out of 5 stars It's A Mind-Bender--And Sexy Too! 24 Aug. 2006
By KMont
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Put your thinking caps on fellow readers. Don't blink, don't skip around--there are so many wonderful details. Dawn Thompson is back with another winner, this time even more rich in romance, suspense and pulse-pounding action. Thompson is a glowing example of an author that only gets better with each book published, her craft aging like a fine wine. Her books are keeper shelf worthy for sure!

1811. Theodosia Barrington, or Thea as she prefers to be called, has traveled to Cashel Cosgrove in County Meath, Ireland, to meet with her betrothed and commence with their wedding. Accompanied by her brother, James, it's immediately apparent that Nigel Crosgrove and his mother, the countess, are not quite the nicest of individuals. But there are gains for both sides--the wealth of the Cosgroves will benefit Thea's family and her by Nigel's side will help stifle the horrible rumors circulating about an alleged crime on Nigel's part. When an elderly Gypsy woman insists upon entry into the castle, she tells Thea of an astounding destiny surrounding the castle's original owner--one that cannot be true. But when said owner, Ros Drumcondra, appears as a spirit to her, she cannot deny the proud Gypsy warrior's affect on her. When she unknowingly enters a portal to 1695, Thea will encounter the physical proof of her desires, the enigmatic Gypsy chief himself. Thea is in for a mind-bending, time-hopping adventure of a romance because not only will Ros use her to exact revenge on the Cosgroves, he will also enslave her very heart.

A book worthy of late-night binge reading doesn't come around very often. I truly hated to put this wonderful book down and was so glad when I could return to it to pick up again. Thea is a wonderful heroine. Full of life, she knows what is in her heart.

5.0 out of 5 stars Who Wouldn't Want To Be...The Falcon's Bride? 10 May 2006
Format:Mass Market Paperback
The Falcon's Bride, by Dawn Thompson, is an intriguing story that wraps back around itself like a bird soaring lazily through the skies on a sunny afternoon. Think you know what is about to happen? Think again. Ms. Thompson has surely used the falcon as her muse creating a mysterious, powerful and potent love story that effortlessly captures the essence of Ireland, as well as that of Ros Drumcondra and Thea Barrington.

Drumcondra, the giant Gypsy warrior fabled to have made a love slave out of his nemesis' betrothed, is worthy of every woman's erotic dream and naughty thought, but his life is one of much tragedy and loss that transcends time and the truth that could lead to the death of all those close to him. Thea, seduced by Otherworldly magic, is drawn away from her evil betrothed and thrust into the arms of an even more deadly man. But this man, like his falcon, will take her to soar in the heavens, plunge her back to earth and snatch her heart and love away with his talons of powerful passion, fierce loyalty and undaunting justice. But, the Gypsy warrior and his lady are not safe in either time and are forced to fight for their lives and their love with an evil that follows them through the ages like a living nightmare. However, like his bird of prey, Drumcondra's attack is swift, sure and deadly...if he can travel through the space and time separating his future and his destiny.

I fell in love with Jeta, who weaved in and out of the story like an invisible thread keeping everything and everyone together. Isor, the valiant falcon, is a comprehensive character, who deserves his own book and story...hint, hint, Ms. Thompson. Rarely is an author able to create such a complex and intricate story with success, but Dawn Thompson has accomplished such a feat and I, for one, relished each minute with The Falcon's Bride.
