About Mary Moriarty

I grew up in New England surrounded by a lot of history and story telling by my father who was from the Mid-Coast of Maine. What I remember of my mother was her love of fairy tales, the wee people and poetry. So it’s no wonder I would one day write.
I actually started writing at a very young age, mostly poetry but I loved playing with words. I also loved books and before I even learned to read I would sit and pour over the books that had belonged to my mother. Works by writers such as Dante and Shakespeare filled the shelves. When I was about 6, I remember trying to read a first edition copy of Ivanhoe that belonged to her.

So what does this author do when she isn't writing? Well I write 7 days a week, early in the morning but when not writing I love to read, knit (so I don't kill people... except in my books), chase around all my animals, there are way too many. I drink a lot of tea to keep me going, some people call me a tea snob. I love great tea like some people like great coffee, beer or wine.
I love great tequila but reserve drinking that with one friend of mine.

A love story that transcends time
Very well written and enjoyable story to read. First in series but still a standalone story. Very original story line intertwining a little from the past with the present. I loved the character interplay with all of them not just the main ones. You have life, love, death, terrorist enemies and a love story that transcends time itself. Interesting and very entertaining story to read. Even though some of the characters are “Vampires”, this is unlike any vampire story I've ever read. It’s more of a magical thing along with some Fae magic in the story. I may have won this book but am so glad I did, because I now have another favorite author.

I received this book free for an honest review.
I loved this book. It was sweet and sexy. Colum was an alpha male that every woman should want and have. And Katherine was definitely a strong woman. This was a beautiful romance about love, faith, and patience. Can't wait to read book 2 and 3.

Katherine MacNamara was in the elevator on that fateful September 2011 day. She calmly gets herself and the other occupants out when the power fails, and begins leading them down the stairwell where her firefighter husband, John is on his way up. He can't convince her to continue down to safety with the others. She is determined to be with him even though it's a death sentence to do so.
Colum O'Heachthanna is suddenly there and picks Katherine up to take her to safety. As she is kicking and screaming, John and Colum lock eyes in a silent conversation. In a few seconds, certain knowledge and promises are exchanged.
John knows this is a one way trip for him and his beloved Katherine is now with the one she has always belonged with. Colum vows that he will take care of her and her three young children.
At Johns grave side, Katherine is beside herself with grief & anger, so when she sees the news van there she marches over and on camera, challenges and threatens the terrorists that took loved ones from their families.
Colum is watching from the side lines ever vigilant in his promise to John. Ever patient, he won't lose her again. Twice before in the last thousand years he has lost his beloved Katherine, his Queen. He had to wait for her to be born again and grow up each time only to helplessly watch her die because he was too late to save her. This time he will not let her out of his site. His father wants to step down and make him king, but Colum refusing to before his queen is by his side.
This is where their story really begins. What is Colum? And who and what really is Katherine? The answers just blew me away! This is a love that not only defies time but transcends thorough the ages! I am going on to read "I've Been Waiting For You" .......Start reading and catch up! I promise you an amazing journey!

Review by: Me44 on May 04, 2014 :
Wow, that prologue was hard to read, especially if you are a New Yorker like me. I liked that the author created a mythology around vampires. I always enjoy it when authors have a unique backstory for why a magical creature exists and how they function around humans.

I really liked how she set it up like Romeo and Juliet. You know how Shakespeare tells us they will die in the first pages of the play? So does the author here. It's not WILL she be changed but how and why.

I liked how she set up the next book without taking too much time with a secondary story here.

I am so very glad I read this amazing book.
I absolutely LOVED it!
The characters leaped off the page and came to life before me. I fell in love with Colum and Katherine. I cried for their losses and laughed with joy for them too.
The heartbreakingly beautiful storyline draws you in as each character evolves before you.
I encourage all to read this wonderful book by an amazing author. You won't regret it!
Thank you Mary! :D

Review by: Sarah on Feb. 05, 2014 :
OMG!!! This was such a great read! I'm so glad I read it. I love reincarnation stories and this was perfect. The concept was brilliant and unique, not like any other PNR I've read. There was vampires, fallen angels, Fae and it's even mix with real tragic events.

The way it started was so sad, made me cry, so heartbreaking. Then we start to see what Colum is and what he does, how much he loves Katherine, things just gets better and better. Colum is your ultimate Alpha Male, you'll fall for him instantly.

My only regret that this was really short, the concept has potential for much more to be added, whether present events or past ones. I'm so glad that I have the next one cuz I can't wait to see what happens to Sally.

I recommend this to PNR fans, you wont want to miss this. It was fun, hot and engaging, you'll be left begging for more.

Review by: Renee Waring on Oct. 25, 2013 :
Katherine MacNamara is one tough lady with a lot of moxie, which has gotten her into one hot mess of a jam. Colum O’Heachthanna, a fierce Irish warrior prince, is there to save and protect her, as he evidently has tried, unsuccessfully, to do for centuries.

Colum is heir to the throne of his vampire world and Katherine is destined to be his queen, if Colum can save and turn her. There is a twist to the world of Colum O’Heachthanna, I don’t want to give it away, but I LOVE IT! The attraction between Kat and Colum is all encompassing. Colum knows why, but Kat is not sure she is ready to move on and love again after the loss of her firefighter husband in the Twin Towers on 9/11. It was Colum who saved her life that day, and who made a promise to her husband that he would watch over and protect Kat and their children. Kat has vowed vengeance on those responsible for the attacks that day, and in a very public forum; which has attracted the attention of a group determined to silence her once and for all.

Several years after the loss of her husband Kat moves herself and her children to the home her deceased Grandmother has left her in a small town away from the city, and its memories of that fateful day. During a morning jog she runs into Colum and discovers that they are now neighbors. Colum befriends her and their friendship quickly escalates. As Colum begins to reveal to Kat that this is not their first time together she, also, begins experiencing disjointed memories of their past lives and deep love for each other. As the attacks on Kat and her family begin in earnest, Colum vows that, this time, he will turn Kat before it is too late, and she will finally take her rightful place as his queen. Will he succeed?

This book is jam packed with intrigue, action, and plenty of steam. We get to meet all of Kat’s family and much of Colum’s, but I have a sense that there will be a lot more to learn about the O’Heachthanna family in coming books (I’m hoping). All those we meet in this first installment are strong, interesting characters that immediately draw you into their lives and make you want to know them better. The storyline is captivating and keeps you turning page after page until there are no more pages to turn. I guarantee it will leave you wanting to know more. I believe Ms. Moriarty very cleverly left us with a few strategic questions, hopefully to be answered in future installments and I, for one, cannot wait to read the continuing story of eternal love and devotion between Kat and Colum.
