The Rousing. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

The Rousing by Paula Black

My rating: 4 of 5 stars.

When unwelcome stranger Jack Pembroke arrives in Darcy McShane’s rural coastal village, the last thing she anticipates is falling for him, but a deadly storm, a night of unrestrained passion and the rousing of an ancient Irish myth conspire to change her life irrevocably. 

From the authors of The Becoming Trilogy, The Rousing is an adult romance novella, set on the wild coast of Southern Ireland. The story blends mystery and eroticism with a paranormal twist on an ancient Celtic vampire legend said to have inspired Bram Stoker’s Dracula. 

The Rousing

Nice little twist on the Vampire myth!



“There was more I didn’t tell Jack Pembroke. Like how I’d come home early from the hospital one afternoon and found Alec in bed with my roommate, Sally. At least I’d only got a broken heart. He’d got a killer dose of herpes from Sally, and God help me, but the bitter and twisted part of me hoped it flared up on his wedding day.”

Irish Vampire legend of A woman, Dearg Due who has some sort of curse against the Pembroke Men. Her grave is on the Pembroke estate. When old Mrs Pembroke dies, Darcy is the Estate agent and Jack Pembroke returns home for the first time since he was six years old. His Mother kept him away from home saying she never wanted him to return.

That is the premise of their story, of course a terrible storm hits town while Darcy and Jack are at the Mansion, they get closer, Dearg Due is after Jack and other men of the town, and other strange things are going on as well.
