Blurb: Anya’s wish for a normal date—away from the old man she is caretaker for—comes true in unexpected ways when she finds herself whisked to an ancient Irish stone circle on solstice eve.

Carrick’s decision to follow the path to become an Ovate druid has not come lightly, and he plans to spend the solstice eve in meditation unless fairies or evil spirits disrupt the circle. When a feisty girl walks right up to the fire, more than sparks fly.

They each seek healing and a connection, but the darkness of summer is short, and once the solstice sun breaks through the circle at dawn, the magic of the night will be over. Even Madame Eve can’t stop the day from rising.

Druid, Mine is exactly what I have come to expect from Kerry Adrienne. It is sweet, hot, the details from the time period are staggeringly accurate and descriptive. 

Anya's job as a caretaker doesn't give her much time to herself, let alone time to date, when she finds Madam Eve's 1 Night Stand service, it's the perfect way for her to cut loose. 

Madam Eve doesn't always find the perfect match in the same time, which is exactly what has happened in this case.

Carrick is about the devote himself to a life to himself, he has agreed to wait one more night to perform the ceremony that will keep all women from his warm embrace.  One night with Anya.

Druid, Mine is wonderfully written, did I mention it is hot? Really hot, steamy. You're going to love this one!

Maybe I’m the first person Madame Eve can’t find a match for. And how was it any better than just picking someone up from one of the dozen bars along the street?

Bile filled her throat. Being caretaker for the old man had filled her days but left her empty inside. I’m lonely. I need this 1Night Stand. She stifled a sob. Crying wouldn’t help anything. She had chosen her path knowing full well what the consequences would be. Maybe she hadn’t foreseen how deeply alone she’d feel, but she’d known what she was getting into, work-wise. She used to be a risk taker, impulsive and willing to try new things. Why was she so willing to settle for security now?

The town’s few buildings rose in shadowed relief in the dusky twilight around the city center like tall stones. Guardians, perhaps. Behind them lay the mountains, the wild unknown. She sat straight and leaned into the faint spray from the fountain. The cool mist spread across the back of her arms. Closing her eyes, she lifted her long hair so the moisture could reach the back of her neck.


Anya dropped her hair.

“Hello?” No one.

“Aine. Let’s go.” The voice floated on drops of water and fell through the air.

“What?” No one was near.

“I’m here.” The voice settled softly like dew on her skin. The air wavered over the fountain and the water slowed.

I only had one beer.

“Come. He awaits.”

For the briefest moment, a golden light eclipsed the edge of Anya’s vision then darkness slid over her.

  1. I am relatively new to blogs and all the new short stories,books, and series have lead to quite an extensive TBR list. I am a bit confused about the 1Night Stand...series? Are there more than one author that contributes this storyline? How far back do they go and how many books are there? It seems like this is very popular but I don't seem to know nearly enough. Anyway, I did enjoy the introduction to "Druid Mine" and the excerpt you provided. It seems to be a bit different from the others I've read about, but maybe not. I will have to read some of them soon so I can have a real understanding of it all! Thanks!!
