Once a Gypsy: The Irish Traveller Series a Book One by Danica Winters.
Page one you are immersed in the gypsy culture and our protagonist, Helena’s life, with her dad being released from jail, mother a drunk, and two younger siblings. Helena is expected to marry who her parents pick out, do what her husband wants, and raise children, not what she wants at all. She want to finish her education. When she meets her father as he is released from jail, she meets Graham, who is the groundskeeper at an estate in Adare, Ireland. Helena has kept a secret, she has the gift of Forshaw, the ability to see the future. Graham needs Helena’s help, and while falling in love with her will need to teach her how to use her talent. I enjoyed this book and look forward to the next in the series. I loved learning about the culture. Highly recommend.— Della McNamara
Thrilling and romantic, Once a Gypsy starts a brand new series from Publisher's Weekly Bestselling Author Danica Winters. "A haunting and fresh voice in paranormal romance. Be prepared for Danica Winters to ensnare you in her dark and seductive world."--Cecy Robson, author of the Weird Girls series and 2016 Double-Nominated RITA(R) Finalist Even for a clairvoyant, the future is never a sure thing. Helena has always struggled to fit in with her Irish Traveller family. It's not just her opposition to getting married or her determination to attend university; Helena also has one talent that sets her apart from the rest of her clan--the gift of the Forshaw, the ability to see the future. Graham is the groundskeeper at a manor in Adare, Ireland. Though the estate appears idyllic, it holds dark secrets, and despite his own supernatural gifts, Graham can't solve Adare Manor's problems by himself. Desperate for help, Graham seeks out a last resort: Helena, whose skills are far greater than even she knows. When he promises to teach her to control her powers, Helena resists, afraid both of the damage her abilities might do and her increasing attraction to the handsome groundskeeper. Her entire way of life is at risk: Any involvement, especially romantic, with non-Travellers like Graham is forbidden. But Helena's future is anything but certain, and fate has other plans for her family, her powers, and her relationship with Graham.
