Irish Traveler Éamonn loves gambling, women, and drinking, not necessarily in that order. But he’s entangled in a true mess when he falls for fiery redhead, Katie. When she’s married to a Scottish Traveler, Éamonn travels to Scotland to find her, with the help of Katie’s sister and cousin, and the magical brooch gifted by his father. Their quest takes them across the Irish Sea to the Isle of Skye, encountering war, betrayal, death. In the end, Éamonn must make his own luck.

Éamonn paced the stall, digging a trench in the mud with his anxious footsteps. What could he offer? His family had some wealth, but a horse remained an expensive commodity. They had two work mares to pull the wagons, but nowhere near the same class as the grey stallion. Ciaran had a beautifully tooled saddle, a piece they put out in front of the booth to draw customers in. But what use would it be to a man who had no horse?
He went to find his father.
After a speedy explanation, Turlough shook his head.
“I don’t know, son. Our wealth is our music, not our coin. I don’t suppose the fact you love the girl has much weight with her father?”
“She says no. He doesn’t seem to have much affection for either girl, from what I’ve seen.”
“How about arranging a deal with the MacCrimmon lad? Convince him to back out of the deal? After all, who wants to marry a girl whose heart is already given to someone else? It is just the heart, is it not?” Turlough narrowed his eyes at his son, knowing full well his reputation with the ladies.
“Yes, Da. We’ve not even kissed yet. I swear. Da, she doesn’t even know which brother it is! If it’s Lochlann, there may be a chance. He seems a decent sort, despite all. But Donald—”
“This is a right fine mess, no doubt. Here, let’s go approach Lochlann.”
“Can… I don’t think I’ll be much help with him after that night at the dice ring—”
“No, I’ll not do this for you. Perhaps it will make you realize your actions have consequences. I will come with you, though.”
This gal is then married of the a Scottish traveler all without her consent. Eamonn now finds himself going to Scotland to rescue her with her sister, a cousin and a brooch his father gave him as a gift, hmm magical brooch as we find out.
Their journey takes them along the coast of Northern Ireland, the west coast of Scotland and lands then on the Island of Skye
The trip is not an easy one they find war, betrayal and even death. But after all the must make his own luck, and to learn how to use his power. A great story, plenty adventures and to see how it ends well you will just have to read it to find out, for I shall not tell you how it ends.
I received a free copy for my honest review!

AUTHOR Bio and Links:
My name is Christy Nicholas, also known as Green Dragon. I do many things, including digital art, beaded jewelry, writing and photography. In real life I'm a CPA, but having grown up with art and around me (my mother, grandmother and great-grandmother are/were all artists), it sort of infected me, as it were. I love to draw and to create things. It's more of an obsession than a hobby. I like looking up into the sky and seeing a beautiful sunset, or a fragrant blossom, a dramatic seaside. I then wish to take a picture or create a piece of jewelry to share this serenity, this joy, this beauty with others. Sometimes this sharing requires explanation – and thus I write. Combine this love of beauty with a bit of financial sense and you get an art business. I do local art and craft shows, as well as sending my art to various science fiction conventions throughout the country and abroad.
