Book Description

He fled life in the shadows for a life in the limelight...
Never as dutiful as his older brother, Lucas Davenport was a thinker, a dreamer of dreams. When tragedy overtook his family, he fled to the bright lights of the stage. Can he make the Shannon Theatre Troupe a success – or is he doomed to once again be “the other son?”

She sought the past she barely remembered...
Mary Kathryn O’Brien returns to the genteel world her mother left behind – but can Irish Katie ever truly hope to belong? Or will old wounds and new rivalries destroy the threads of family forever?

Lucas and Katie must battle prejudice and buried secrets before they can learn to trust each other. Is their love just a brief intermission, or are they Playing For Keeps?

I just finished reading "Playing for Keeps" and I have to tell you that I think this just may be Cynthia's best book to date. I am a big fan of her Claddagh series books, especially since I have O'Brien blood in my veins. Perhaps I loved this book more because it involved an actor. My great-great grandfather emigrated from Ireland. He, too, was an actor, living in the same time frame in which this book is set. Unfortunately, he was not nearly as nice as Lucas and his (and, therefore, my great-great grandmother's) story had a much different ending. Whatever the reason I especially felt connected to this book, it was a great romance, a lively story and very well-written, so don't put too much emphasis on why I thought I liked it. No spoiler alerts here...read it for yourself, and join me in presenting a five-star review!

More About the Author

I believe I was destined to be interested in history. One of my distant ancestors, Thomas Aubert, reportedly sailed up the St. Lawrence River to discover Canada some 26 years before Jacques Cartier's 1534 voyage. Another relative was a 17thCentury "King's Girl," one of a group of young unmarried girls sent to New France (now the province of Quebec) as brides for the habitants (settlers) there. My passion for reading made me long to write books like the ones I enjoyed, and I tried penning sequels to my favorite Nancy Drew mysteries. Later, fancying myself a female version of Andrew Lloyd Weber, I drafted a musical set in Paris during WWII.

A former journalist and lifelong Celtophile, I enjoyed a previous career as a reporter/editor for a small chain of community newspapers before returning to my first love, romantic fiction. My stories usually include an Irish setting, hero or heroine, and sometimes all three!

I am a member of the Romance Writers of America, Hearts Through History Romance Writers, and Celtic Hearts Romance Writers. A lifelong resident of Montreal, Canada, I still live there with my own Celtic hero and our two teenaged children.
