January is “Viking” month at “Historical Romance
Review with Regan Walker” (http://reganromancereview.blogspot.com/
). Please drop in for a visit, Tuesday, January 23rd when I will be the
guest author for the day.
If you haven’t discovered Regan or her amazing blog,
you are in for a treat. Regan is an award-winning author of Regency, Georgian, and
Medieval novels. Each month she dedicates her blog to a different theme such as
Scots & Highlanders, Pirates & Privateers, American West, Victorian, etc.
For the occasion, I’ve penned an article on “Viking Age Iceland – Discovery & First Settlements” and
will be giving away a free eBook copy of my HEART
Trilogy (Collection #2) containing all three of my Viking related novels: THE VALIANT HEART, THE DEFIANT, HEART and
THE CAPTIVE HEART.
As many of you know, my years in Iceland in the ‘70s
inspired my interest in the Norsemen and led to writing the HEART trilogy. For articles on life as a
Navy wife in the “Land of Ice and Fire,” recipes and more please visit the
Author Confidential page of my website at: www.kathleenkirkwoodhistoricals.com.

Widowed Victorian Lady: Traveling companion to an elderly, aristocratic
lady, Vanessa Wynters is drawn to Royal Sherringham upon her employer's death.
Little does she expect to remain at the estate beyond the funeral itself, or to
find herself caught up in the secrets ofSherringham’s turbulent past or those of the deceased noblewoman’s dark,
brooding nephew ― Viscount Adrian Marrable.
Mysterious Viscount: Twice wed and twice widowed, the darkly handsome
lord is implicated in both his wives’ tragic and untimely deaths. Adrian is
captivated by Vanessa’s golden beauty and willingly fulfills his late aunt’s
dying wishes. His generous financial support allows Vanessa to remain at
Sherringham and pursue her passion for photography. But her growing attraction
to the enigmatic viscount proves as unsettling as the ghostly figure that
appears in her photographs.
An expansive castle-mansion complex in the English West Midlands, its long
history dates back to the times of the druids. What mysteries does Sherringham
hold, and why did Adrian’s late aunt flee her beloved home to live in
self-imposed exile? Now, as the Marrable family gathers after years apart,
Sherringham’s unseen residents stir.What might they reveal, if the planes between the spiritual and material
dimensions are breached? Will Vanessa find an adversary or an ally in the
otherworldly presence that beckons from her photographs as secrets are unearthed,
shade by shocking shade? Dare Vanessa embrace her blossoming love for the dark
viscount or, like her late employer, flee Sherringham forever?

“A compelling tale
enhanced by the mystery surrounding Sherringham’s Castle. Ms. Kirkwood’s artful
use of photography to unravel the mystery of the restless spirit lends both
credibility and realism to her tale.”
