It’s a mad, ill-advised journey that leads the usually sensible Lady Caroline Blacknall to the legendary isle of Muirin Inish, off the windswept coast of Ireland. Even so, she doesn’t expect to find herself shipwrecked and then rescued by a man she believed she would never see again. A man who, long ago, held her life in his hands . . . and with it, her heart.

Reformed rake Sir Grant Dunmore knew he could never forget the beautiful woman he once endangered nor will he ever forgive himself. But history seems doomed to repeat itself, for as long as Caroline stays on the island, she is trapped in a secret plot that could forever free Ireland-or turn deadly for all. And yet, now that she is in his arms again, how can he dream of ever letting her go?


Review: At the start of this book, I was a bit lost; I felt like I was missing something. It wasn’t till the end of the book that I realized it was the third book and final in the Daughters of Erin series. Besides that fact I really did enjoy this read. It is a historical and the author has a wonderful way of describing the landscape making you feel like you are right there in Ireland.

The hero Grant Dunmore is a tortured soul, which I love, who was burned in a fire that he and the heroine Caroline Blacknall escaped some time ago. Since I did not read the first two books, I was able to figure out he had kidnapped Caroline and her sister and during the entire goings on he fell in love with Caroline and vice versa. This is the part that had me confused, how can you fall in love with a man who kidnapped you?

The way the characters interacted with one another was intriguing and the chemistry was definitely seen. There is some wonderful intrigue in this book, which I also enjoy very much. If you are looking for a brilliant read where you need to turn the page to see what happens next, this one is most certainly for you.
