She carried the seed of rebirth, so what had fallen would rise again.The ghost of her ancestor sent Druidess Tanwen from Britannia to the strange foreign tribe of the Caledonii to wed Brude, son of the chief. But Brude is not about to marry a druidess even though she has the most beautiful body he's ever seen. Never mind if his blood boils and he can't stop thinking of her. He will not wed her. Yet the fate of Caledonia rests in the hands of the Warrior and the Druidess. Will they put their differences aside to fulfill their destiny?

Tanwen walked through the wheat field. Half willow tree, half fey was the only description that fit. Tall but lithe, her red hair waving in the wind, streaming down her slender body. Her skin was still pale blue from the woad, giving her the appearance of an enchantress, summoned from the other world to bless the crops. Everyone gazed at her as she walked forward and halted at a stalk. She plucked an ear of wheat and rolled the grain between her finger and thumb as Lossio had done. "It is
plump and yielding." She stared at Brude with an intense gaze that set his insides on fire. "Yes, it is time."

A cheer went up from everyone, but Brude was captured by her gaze and couldn't look away. He didn't want to. He wanted to step forward, scoop her up into his arms, and carry her off to his bed. By the gods, the druidess had enchanted him.

He did not say a word to Tanwen, nor she to him, but she turned her head and flipped her red hair across her back as she walked off.

CELTIC VIDEOS (of 1st century AD in Scotland and England in honor of Druid Quest
and Druid Bride)

1. Centurion Movie Trailer
The northern, Pictish tribes of Scotland ambush and battle the Romans as also
depicted in Druid Bride, released this month June 7th. Centurion is set to have
a limited U. S. release, I believe this summer. This film is about the legend of
the 9th legion which is featured in Druid Bride as well.

2. Pictish Pursuit
After finding a spear head in an old hill fort, three Scottish
children have a day of wild adventure. An ancient Pict warrior
appears before them and tires to get his spearhead back.

3. Centurion Movie
Behind the scenes of the film. The actors speak about the movie.

4. The Picts
A short film about the Pictish culture made for the Pictish museum.

5. The Celts
Animation, drama, and art depicts Celtic heroes and kings as Enya
sings a stirring song, reminding us of the glory of past days and
the rich heritage that will never be forgotten.

6. Boudica The Warrior Queen
A one Woman Musical/Drama performance by Michele Breeze based on
the life of the Celtic Warrior Queen Boudica.

7. Boudicca Away
A video with the song "Away" by Nightwish is combined with footage
of the movie "Warrior Queen Boudica"

8. Boudica Queen of Legend
On al lighter note, with a more amateur cast. School children
dramatize the story of Boudica for an English project.

9. A History of Scotland, Episode 1, Land of the Free
Beautiful scenery of Scotland. The Caledonii are the tribe featured in my book,
Druid Bride.

10. The Picts Of Scotland - Last Of The Free
A film that gives a little more history on the Picts. My book Danger Is Sweet
has a Pictish heroine and is set against the back drop of Kenneth Mac Alpin and
my hero in Druid Bride is a Pict, a warrior of the Caedonii.
