Format: Mass Market Paperback
Some of my favorite reads this year have been penned by relatively new or first time authors. Set in a castle in contemporary County Cork Ireland, Kate Ivers' debut novel for Jove's "Irish Eyes" line is worth making a trip to the bookstore to purchase.
American hotel executive Kelly Sullivan is set to become the next VP of her company. Before jetting off to Ireland, her boss implies that the promotion is all but hers after she cements the sale of Whitlock Castle and turns it into a luxury hotel for the company. The O'Meara family, who Lawrence Hotels is buying the castle from, has lived at Whitlock for generations. They don't want to leave, but finances dictate otherwise. They agreed to the sale not only because they had to, but also because the CEO of Lawrence Hotels promised on a handshake not to dissemble the castle's interior.
When hard-nosed, strictly business Kelly arrives at Whitlock, she tries not to involve herself with the O'Mearas on a personal level. She has a promotion at stake, after all. But the O'Meara clan--which consists of the sinfully handsome Conor, plus his father and two spinster aunts--are hard not to love. The elders treat Kelly like family and make her feel more welcome and at home than she has ever felt in her life. Between her burgeoning affection for the elders, her growing love of the Irish countryside and the castle itself, not to mention her steamy affair with Conor, Kelly is done in for. So when her boss outlines his intention to gut the interior of the O'Meara family's precious Whitlock in order to turn it into a medieval theme park, she vows to do all she can to stop him.
Conor O'Meara is physically attracted to the snooty Yank the moment he lays eyes on her.

Midsummer Lightning is a great book!
American hotel executive Kelly Sullivan is one move away froma promotion-by coordinating the sale of Whitlock Castle in the village of County Cork, Ireland. With its lavish banquet halls, minestrel galleries, dungeons, and rich Celtic tradition, it could be converted into more than a luxury hotel-it could be moneymaking magic. Unfortunately, the nineteenth-century Gothic treasure has been entrusted to Conor O' Meara, an Irishman as stubborn as he is handsome. And for Kelly, as much of a challenge as he is a temptation.....
This book was great, I liked the main characters Kelly and Conor a lot. I laughed at the parts where the book mentioned "scandelous" red underwear by the Irish woman who wear knee-length bleached white cotton underdrawers!

Kelly Sullivan, a hotel corporation executive desperately trying to make vice president in a business she loves, and Conor O'Meara, the heir to a modern day Irish castle that Kelly's company wants to make into a Disney-style theme park, are a real, loving, passionate pair of lovers in this contemporary romance novel by Kate Ivers. Who does a great job of making the modern day Irish come alive when a big American hotel company threatens their cherished landmark, Whitlock Castle - and Kelly is the hatchet woman! Conor O'Meara must be the sexiest man alive, I loved him. And his former girlfriend,who has to be that redheaded beauty from Riverdance. They all cast their spell, along with the enchanting Irish countryside. This is a wonderful read.
