June, 1947 Sebago Lake, Maine. Strikingly handsome 23 year-old Robert McGregor has a life worthy of envy. He’s a Boston Brahmin, soon to attend Harvard Law School and has a lovely young woman awaiting him back in Boston. His perfect life takes an unexpected turn when he meets Courtney Wellington at the home of a family friend. Courtney is the stuff that dreams are made of: exquisite, vulnerable and desperately alone… or so it seems. But Courtney’s identity is more extraordinary than he could imagine. The 40th in a line of Wiccan Goddesses, Courtney and her friends have special plans for Robbie. He’s been chosen to wed her in a ceremony foretold a dozen centuries ago. A ceremony they hope will keep humanity from chaos and destruction. Fearful at first, Robbie finds himself drawn to the young beauty. When Courtney is kidnapped by a rogue Druid Priest, she and Robbie become pawns in a deadly struggle. A struggle that will take them across the Atlantic, threaten their lives, and lead to a confrontation that may affect the fate of humanity. Rite of Passage combines gripping romance with action worthy of Ludlum or Child. Surprise and deception confront Robbie, his brother and best friend and Courtney’s powerful wizard grandfather as they try to wrest her from the clutches of the evil Druid coven. The passion, non-stop action and constant plot twists make it a story both sexes will find engaging.
