Yesterday morning, I awoke to find several amazing emails in my inbox. The first, was finding out that my first historical romance, Ræliksen, was nominated in two categories for Love Romances Café’s Best Awards: “Best Book Cover” and “Best Historical 2010”. The second was realizing that Ræliksen and Mac Liam (Book 1 and 2 of my Emerald Isle Trilogy) have been given 5 Star reviews at Night Owl Reviews with the coveted TOP PICK label.
As you can imagine, I was soaring, literally on cloud nine. And so what does this mean to a newbie author like me?
Well, I gave it lots of thought, because frankly, all I could do was mull this moment over in my head a thousand times. And I came to the conclusion that I have the best fans in the world. There’s nothing else I could say. Without the loyalty of my fans, these awards would mean diddly-squat.
But wait. It doesn’t stop there. My publisher, Turquoise Morning Press, tallied up the sales figures on the Top Ten Selling Books for TMP in the fourth quarter of 2010, and both Ræliksen and Mac Liam are in the TOP TEN BEST SELLER list.
So, yeah. I definitely have the best fans in the world. And I think all of this is worth celebrating over.
Well, guess what? TMP has put all ten of these titles on sale at All Romance Ebooks for 20% off. Which means, we’re giving back as a thank you to all those wonderful romance fans out there. So, if you were ever interested in purchasing the first two books of my Emerald Isle Trilogy: Ræliksen and Mac Liam, now is the time!

The plot is cleverly complex and exciting and just when you think you've figured this story out, it takes you in a whole other direction keeping your heart pounding, the tears pouring, and on the edge of your seat. I really appreciated Ms. Vincent's knowledge of the people and land of this time period as the images came across crystal clear. The scenery was completely vivid and will take the reader away to places they never thought they would experience. The characters were not only engaging but they also felt very real. Dægan and Mara refuse to let anyone or anything come between them and the lengths they go to for one another is admirable. Too many supporting characters to name and praise for making this story what it is… captivating.
This is my first read by Renee Vincent and she has undoubtedly earned a place on my auto-buy author’s list. This story has all the makings to being a wonderful screenplay for what I can only imagine being an absolutely gorgeous movie. This book and author earn my highest recommendations and I feel privileged to have read one of the best. It is a must read for any lover of historical romance or even lovers of romance in general.

Much of this story is about choices and remembering the simple pleasures in life that sometimes get taken for granted as well as resolving to learn from past mistakes and then do better. I will admit to being skeptical that this story would capture me as much as the first had, but I was blown away by the awesomeness that is Mac Liam. Ms. Vincent surpassed all of my expectations with her impressive writing abilities, while offering more incites and revelations that will keep readers coming back for more. Readers should be warned of the emotional turmoil they will face once again while reading this incredible story. I eagerly anticipate the next story in this trilogy, yet already mourn the finality.

I am so grateful to all my romance fans, and to even those who are on the fence about leaping off and reading a new author. Just knowing you are all out there keeps a huge smile on my face and that strong determination in my heart to write another award-worthy love story. And another…and another.
