This Story Is Sexy

Publisher's Summary

Sean never asked to be an O'Hara, and he didn't ask to be cursed by one, either.

After inheriting a hexed druid stone from his great-grandfather, Sean starts reliving another man's torture and death...every single night. And only one person can help.

Cormac Kelly runs a paranormal investigation business and doesn't have time to deal with misinformed tourists like Sean. But Sean has real magic in his pocket, and even though Cormac is a descendant of legendary druids, he soon finds himself out of his depth...and not because Sean's the first man he's felt anything for in a long time.

The pair develop an unexpected and intensely sexual bond, but are threatened at every turn when Sean's case attracts the unwelcome attention of the mad sidhe lords of ancient Ireland. When Sean and Cormac are thrust backward in time to Ireland's violent history - and their own dark pasts - they must work together to escape the curse and save their fragile relationship.

Imagination Run Amok -- In A Good Way!

This story is not your average fare of M/M romance. It is better. The writing and narration cast a spell on me that kept my interest from the beginning. When listening, I was often sucked into this fictional world and found myself rooting for the characters out loud. There were times when I was saddened for their inability to connect physically, but that is what M/M romance is all about. The supernatural portions of the story are well fleshed out and the descriptions make them absolutely real. I would recommend this book to anyone who might enjoy their man-on-man love with a side of supernatural time-travel.

misguided

I'm not impressed with the author. The implied assumption that gay people choose to be gay. That circumstances can persuade a persons sexuality. I was very disappointed.

Terrific Romantic Story both Modern & Historic

I was hooked the entire story. Loved the modern day setting mixed with the historical settings. The romantic undercurrent is fun and relevant.

The Magic of Druids

I typically find M/M romances to be sappy and uninteresting but that is very much not the case with The Druid Stone. The characters are compelling and the plot is quite interesting. The Urban Fantasy stereotype of the plucky, all-powerful ingenue is not to be found here. The characters make mistakes and get hurt.

The erotic scene were very good but what I truly appreciated was the restraint the authors showed in regard to how much of the book would be spent on them. The story and the characters come first (pun unintended) and they don't have an easy road to romance.

Can't wait for a sequel.

Ian makes the whole story!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Druid Stone to be better than the print version?

I would listen to Ian Ruane read anything. Although this book was perfect for Ian as it was set in Ireland. The story is good if you like dimensions shifts (which I don't particularly care for). The pace is good though and there is a good story here.

What about Ian Ruane’s performance did you like?

He was able to put emotions in his voice. His jump between Irish and Boston accent was so good I often wondered how he did that so easily.

Loved, Loved, LOVED it!

I really loved this book! The storyline was so rich with culture and magic and the lost and found love was sweet. The characters were so genuine and although the romance wasn’t the focus of the book it was not simply a side note. I am missing the characters already. Any hope for a sequel? How about in Cuba? :-)

Great Fae storyline

Enjoyable characters and an intriguing plot base make this a great read. my only suggestion would be for it to ramble a little less and not take so long to tell the story.

It grew on me!

I really wasn't sure about this book when I started to listen but it definitely is worth persevering with it. It is is a good story and I will certainly listen again.
