"Irish Hearts must overcome preconceptions and revenge"
Erin McKeogh arrives in Ireland wanting to stop her best
friend and business partner, Con, from marrying a fortune
hunter he's only known a few weeks. What Erin doesn't know
is that Con and Aisling have known each other longer than
she has known Con. Con and Erin's twin, Nolan have kept
the relationship a secret from Erin.
Phelan McDermott's mother married Conlon O'Hara's
grandfather, which makes them relatives. Con has asked
Phelan to care for his "nerdy, shy" friend Erin. Phelan is
stunned to find instead a very beautiful woman. Phelan does
not want to get close to Erin because it would put her in
danger. A secondary romance [Erin's brother & Aisling's
friend] has a romance developing with misunderstandings
about her belief in fairies.
This is a sequel to LADY MOONLIGHT which was a paranormal
romance book. I chuckled at the references to the 'fantasy
book' an author wrote using Aisling and Con as characters.
As this is a contemporary romance, these references do
explain paranormal events read in LADY MOONLIGHT while
keeping the tone for IRISH MOONLIGHT. If you have not read
LADY MOONLIGHT, you will not feel at a loss, but may miss
some of the humorous references.
Erin faces her complicated feelings for her best friend and
her developing feelings for Phelan. Nolan and Erin face
their prejudices from an upbringing by an irresponsible
father and choose not to let their past interfere with
finding love. The involvement between characters and their
connection is what true romance stories are made of! I can
whole-heartedly recommend this for romance fans and look
forward to more stories from Ms. Freiman.
