March 31, 2023: Tadhg’s Birthday

Our March offering among the host of new holidays is a festive one, drawn from the work of Jenny Hickman in her Myths of Airren Series. Fae, pooka, curses, kisses, enchantments, witches, banter, and wine, anyone?

And in the meantime, grab a copy of A Cursed Heart yourself and have a read.

Living on an island plagued by magic and mythical monsters isn’t a fairy tale… it’s a nightmare.

After Keelynn witnesses her sister’s murder at the hands of the legendary Gancanagh, an immortal creature who seduces women and kills them with a cursed kiss, she realizes there’s nothing she wouldn’t do to get her back. With the help of a vengeful witch, she’s given everything she needs to resurrect the person she loves most.

But first, she must slay the Gancanagh.

Tadhg, a devilishly handsome half-fae who has no patience for high society—or propriety—would rather spend his time in the company of loose women and dark creatures than help a human kill one of his own.

That is until Keelynn makes him an offer he can’t refuse.

Together, they embark on a cross-country curse-breaking mission that promises life but ends in death.

A Cursed Kiss is the first book in the Myths of Airren series, a new adult fantasy romance with morally gray fae and fated mates.

Recipes to Celebrate Tadhg’s Birthday

The menu is pending and right now we’re in development to see what beverages (aside from whiskey and wine) would be fitting for this particular celebration. But here’s a sampler of what may be coming!
