Irish Rising by Marie Rose Dufour
I have to admit, I have a passion for all things English, Irish and Scottish. When I seen this title I was like – MINE!!
Kim is on a working vacation. She is traveling Ireland and doing research on the land, people and history. After too much time with her cousins shopping, she decides it’s time for some alone time and heads out to explore. She never expected what she found.
Way, way, way back when, Duncan’s grandfather saved a mermaid and was granted a great boon, the ability to recognize the love of your life. While as a child he loved to hear the tale repeated, but as a grown man, he doesn’t have time for fantasy, he has a pub to run. That all changed the moment he sees a woman across the street. A woman he is instantly attracted to.
While both went into this relationship hesitantly, it didn’t take long for things to change. Their passion was explosive and very steamy. Both characters ventured outside of their comfort zones and it was fun to experience it with them.
While this is a good story, the misunderstanding just didn’t seem that dire to me as the blurb indicated. I was expecting an “oh my goodness” moment, that was never delivered. The rest of the story is enchanting and this is one short story I wish would have been longer. I could see myself enjoying more moments with these two characters.
Irish Rising is a quick entertaining escape. If you want a touch of Irish, Duncan is your man and Irish Rising the book to read.
