    1. Author give-away when I emailed her. I'm so excited, I jumped and my husband thought I won lottery LOLThis book was good from beginning to end. I fall in love with Patrick, although he stammered a bit. The dialogue was cute and I laughed all the time. I really want more. I can't get enough of it. I only wished that it was a little bit longer. I'm curious and wanting to find out more about Patrick, Darina and her little brother Braeden.

    2. I, sadly, had a lot of problems with this one, provided by netgalley, which completely outweighed its redeeming features. I really didn't enjoy reading it at all (which always pains me, because I appreciate the work that goes into a book, even if it's not a genre I'm particularly into, and especially if it's by a relatively new author), and honestly couldn't wait to finish it so I could move on to something better.So, what did I like?- I liked the Irish setting. You did get something of a feelin [...]

    3. I could not understand why so much of the book was spent setting everything up. As a matter of fact, Darina (our heroine) and Patrick (I LOVED our hero) were only together in the book a short time. But, then I came to the end of the book. DAMN! This is a cliffhanger book! There is no ending. You have to get the next book to learn what happens in the story next. After I got over that shock and my unhappiness about it, I decided that I will, indeed, be getting the next book in the series. And, tha [...]

    4. I got to read this last week before official publication and I was very impressed. It was believable and exciting all at the same time and I found myself laughing many times in the book. The author put great detail and work into developing a griping story line that held my attention, combined with quality writing. She built the story from the very beginning and I loved the people in the book, especially Patrick. Delaney is a great writer and I look forward to reading more books from her in the f [...]

    5. Bu yorum aynı zamanda Romancekolikte yayınlanmıştır.Kitabı netgalleyden yorumlamak niyetiyle almıştım. Aslında kitaptan haber olmam çok daha ötesine gidiyor. Sanırım yazar twitterdan beni takip etmişti. Neyse efenim benim o zamandan gözüm takılmıştı. Hem konuya, hem kapağa.Görüncede hemen talep edip okudum. Ama bu kadar mı yanılır bir insan? Saçımı başımı yolacaktım herhalde. Öncelikle benim beklentim bir Tarihi Aşk Romanıydı. Kitapta aşk görebilsem dişi [...]

    6. Horribly written. I can't believe this book was published with spelling errors, weird syntax, bizarre use of language and oh so many other annoying things. I felt like I could have written this five years ago but maybe slightly better. At least I would check my spellings! Waist not waste! The conversations are mostly weird. They all sound modern and out of place. It doesn't matter how many times they say "Nay" and "Aye". It's not going to make it believable. 1/4 through I was already pitying mys [...]

    7. What do you get when you have highlanders, lairds, clans, plaids, and shamans IN IRELAND? Well, you get Celtic Storms, of course! I've never read this author, and never will again, but it is obvious that she mixed up Scotland with Ireland, BIG TIME. Advice to the writer: whenever you write a story about some point in history, make sure the historical aspects pertain to a particular culture/country. You wouldn't for example, write about how the Nazis during WWII were based in China right? Come to [...]

    8. There is a reason why I read within the confines of my reading comfort zone. And this book just assured me of the reasons why I only stick to reading what I like to read. I don't intend offense to the author, who clearly dedicated time and effort to research Celtic mythology and Irish customs, language, and idioms in order to write this book. And I appreciate that. I think the major problem was that I was expecting too much from this book. I read the synopsis and it sounded mysterious and intere [...]

    9. Now for those who may not know, I am not a fan of romance, at all. I try to avoid it if I can. But this book, with the basic premise romance got my attention. Not the romance, the human frailty of the main male character, the strong personality of the main female character, the rich and fragrant backdrop against which the story plays off had me turn page after page. Fragrant? Yes, fragrant, one can almost smell the rivers, the sea, the horses, the dampness of the castle etc. All served to add su [...]

    10. Celtic Storms by Delaney Rhodes is the first book in the series and it does what any good start to a series does…it leaves you wanting more. It is the story of Darina and Patrick, who are being forced to marry each other to bring two clans together. I loved the characters and how easy the book was to follow despite the time period it is set in. I normally have great difficulty getting into books that are set any farther back in time than the past 10 years or so but Delaney caught and kept my a [...]

    11. *****SPOILER ALERT*****Celtic Storms is very well written and it's obvious that Ms. Rhodes has spent a great deal of time and energy researching this particularly tumultuous time in the history of Ireland. Her characters are well developed and I particularly appreciated that although they meet the standards of romantic historical fiction, they are far from stereotypes. The best example of this is Patrick MacCahan, the male romantic lead. Patrick is a fine physical specimen of a man, tall, muscul [...]

    12. UG!!!! What is with books these days ending at the beginning of the climax?? I should not have to read book 2 to find out the ending of book 1. Authors have an entire book to win over the reader and make them want to read book 2. Readers shouldn't be forced to keep reading a series just to find out what should have been in the first book. It is such a cowardly way to end a book. The sad part is that even though the first 3/4's of this book was boring and needed some serious culling the last quar [...]

    13. I always love anything Celtic or Irish. I am so attracted to their culture because it seems so bloody and violent, and yet so relentlessly beautiful all at the same time. My first exposure to Celtic culture in novels is from Anne Rice's Vampire Chronicles. Aside from that, I have read a lot about Celts, especially the ancient pagan human sacrificing Celts. I had a book all about them in French. The Irish Gaelic language is also very wonderful for me that I even bought a dictionary and a grammar [...]

    14. Addictive Beginning! Oh my, what an addictive story to start with. This is one Highland adventure that not only has some fierce and sexy highlanders in it but a world full of mysteries, magic, Celtic paganism, mixture of christian beliefs, and bitter sweet revenge. The writing is beautiful and the beginning romance is a sweet tease (Heat Level 2). This first book is just the beginning of the whole story as we are introduced to the Irish countryside and their countrymen. The readers get to meet t [...]

    15. Source: Provided by NetGalley for an honest review.Reviewed by: Book Babe at RomancingTheTomeReviewsQuickie Review:This novel is riddled with grammatical errors, contained copious pages of narrative and description most of it unrelated to the immediate story, and only a hinted at a plot through chapter five; which is point where I deleted the story from my Kindle.First Line:“Patrick! Patrick!” repeated the annoying sound from the castle grounds.Summary:Darina O'Malley watched the sun set in [...]

    16. I thought that Celtic Storms had potential to be good story as I liked the story idea but there were just some things that bugged me while I read and I found it choppy and somewhat lacking. I struggled at the very beginning as the POV switched within the same paragraph and I struggled to keep track of whose POV was when, but that seemed to work itself out as the book went out. I didn’t like the way the story bounced around between character POVs, it just didn’t flow well for me. As I liked t [...]

    17. As the oldest daughter of the recently deceased O'Malley laird, and with no male heirs to pass the clan to, Darina is being wed to Patrick, the eldest son of the Laird of the MacCahan clan. She knows nothing of Patrick and worries about how he will react to the rather unique situation of the O'Malley clan. Meanwhile, an evil plot to destroy the O'Malley clan is afoot.The author had some good ideas with this story, and I really liked Darina and Patrick. There were many more things that bothered m [...]

    18. Yes! Yes! Yes! Have you ever read a book and thought to yourself, this is the same stupid book I just read, just by a different author with different character names? Well - this is NOT that book. If you are looking for something truly DIFFERENT, that will get and keep your attention and entertain you the entire way - this one's for you. I am SO GLAD, this author was willing to take RISKS with her work. It worked and it was very rewarding. This will not be the same "insert name here" highlander [...]

    19. First offn I say the male cover model has a smokin' chest? Yum! Mind out of the gutter.Darina is a strong female in a world full of headstrong males. Of course, her and the other women in her clan are taught from a young age that they can do most of what men can do and more. But after Darina's father passes, her world is turned upside down. Her Uncle Ruarc informs her that she will be married to a complete stranger from another clan.Patrick MacCahan can't understand why he was the one to be chos [...]

    20. Very good book! I am a fan of old Celtic tales, Irish folklore and such. This book has some fantastic Irish folklore in it making it interesting and so hard to put down-until your finished. The book starts out in the 15th century, a time period that is full of tales and legends. The story is filled with many interesting and well defined characters. I like to see strong female leads in non-stereotypical roles so I was drawn the character of Darina and the women of Darina's clan. Believing an old [...]

    21. Celtic Storms (1) by Delaney Rhodes is an excellent read. This story contains secrets that should not have been kept. Secrets that were intended to save and prevent harm but at the same time caused much harm. This story contains the classic good versus evil story line with a slight twist of mystery, romance, sorcery, and family honor. The characters were at first seemed a little strange but as the story continued I found I was drawn to how well Delaney Rhodes was able to maintain the characters [...]

    22. Could not put the book down, and now that I have finished it, my mouth is watering for the 2nd book of the series. Well written, and the Author has done a magnificent job of developing characters that draw you in, and that you root for!

    23. It was pretty interesting and I really like Patrick and his sense of humor and honor, but this book has no end!!!! So I'm waiting for the next one, with Kyra!!!Tanks to Netgalley and Delaney Rodes for the preview

    24. This book transports you to Ireland. A great deal of research must have went into getting the facts straight for this time period and country and I can appreciate that. An amazing love story.

    25. This is a great story set in late medieval Ireland among successful but, who'd have thought it, rival clans! It includes the requisite tall, handsome blue-eyed heroes, beautiful (but far from helpless; these are Celts, remember) green-eyed lasses, early Christian cum late pagan seafaring traders, ancient Pagan manuscripts filled with formulaic curses, the odd quasi-Druid witch, moated castles with dank dungeons, and enough lurid sex for readers with prurient tastes to indulge a bit.I would rate [...]
