Book Description

Contemporary Irish Romance

Shaun Bell, a divorced workaholic, spends all his time tending bar in his Irish Pub. He's ready to love again, but the women who visit his bar are only after his infamous Irish cocktails. At the advice of his darts team, over a tanker or two of Beamish, he applies to 1Night Stand to get back into the swing of things and enjoy the company of a woman specially selected for him by Madame Evangeline.

Rachel Taylor has issues. Her father broke her mother's heart with his cheating and Rachel swore never to let that happen to her, but one ruined relationship after another and she's realized she's got to get over being closed off to men. Perhaps a one-night stand is just the baby step she needs to begin to build trust again.

A match seemingly made in heaven...until morning rolls around and Shaun can't bring himself to say good-bye. Can he win her over with his secret weapon, a Sweet Irish Kiss, or is Rachel still too scared to love?


The Irish Kisses series is a collection of erotic Irish romance books set in an Irish pub - Bell's Irish Pub - in the heart of London.  Irishmen serving tasty treats in the form of irish romance kindle books. British romance stories.

Editorial Reviews


  • ARe bestseller.
  • BookStrand bestseller.
  • AMAZON bestseller.
"Ms. Kenrick's writing style flows nicely throughout the story. Her attention stays more on the characters rather than the setting which is fitting for the genre of the novella. I like her ability to dig deep within the characters feelings allowing them to step up and tell their story. It is as if the author really took the back seat on this one. Very well written indeed! JoAnne Kenrick knows how to write unique, if not quirky, characters that stay with me long after I've finished reading their stories." -- Talina, Night Owl Romance

"One word describes Shaun...well, the whole book really: SEXY. Yup. This is one smokin' hot, sexy read! JoAnne Kenrick took a mix of British, splashed it with Irish brogue and good looks, and whipped her readers a HEA story you WON'T forget! " -- Reviews by Molly 


From the Author

I can't believe I did that. What a great first impression. Not! And only I could top it off
by going all defensive on his ass. Poor guy looks like a rabbit caught in the headlights. At least he was a gentleman about it, though. Had any of my exes seen me go down like a ton of bricks, all Nia Vilvados style, they'd have pissed themselves laughing and grabbed their cameras. I'm the character who gets caught up in headphone wire when she sees a hot guy in that movie...Fat Greek Wedding, Big Fat Greek...whatever. I know what I mean.

Rachel shuddered. She'd fallen flat on her face because the hunkiness of her one-night stand
had taken her by surprise. She hadn't expected it. Not in the least. Average, that's what his profile had said. It's why she picked him. She figured he wouldn't be up himself. Most attractive men who know they're hot behave like monkeys in heat because of it. She wanted a man who would be thanking his lucky stars to have her in his arms, and one who would be romantic and polite. And when he rushed to help her, he'd surprised her again.

Drop dead gorgeous and caring? This could be dangerous.
"Ya feeling better now?" Thick Irish accent, smooth like Baileys, coated each word her one-night stand spoke.
"Uh-huh." She glanced up at his welcoming expression and caught her stare in his. "So, you're Irish?" You're Irish?
He quirked his mouth into a grin as if she amused him. She reminded herself that she wanted this and backed up.

Firstly the cover is as hawt as whats inside !!! SMOKIN !!

An agency who helps to fulfil your wants with no strings attached - or if your looking for a little bit of lovin ! or even maybe love ?

A night to enjoy, fulfill fantasies and move on, hopefully opening barriers they have both put up. But where does a night filled with passion and scorching electricity leave them.. ??

Aye where do I start !!!!

Sweet Irish Kiss is a seductive erotic - spine tingling romance ; a page-turner that keeps you riveted from beginning to end!"

oh my I was reading so fast I think I had it read in record breaking time !! waggles eyebrows..

I personally enjoy a quickie read,, but with this one - I wanted more wink wink !!but saying that There was Enough detail in the story where I found nothing was missed out, well balanced storyline with moments that will knock your socks off !

At only 34 pages long, if you like your reads hot then this is for you !! Its fast paced, intriguing ** wink wink ** and certainly has your heart racing and pulse flitting. ! Your Panties will be bunching and you will be sitting on the edge of your chair to wait and see what goodies Shaun has packed in his overnight bag ** grins **

4.0 out of 5 stars A contemporary sexy tale from a very talented writer October 10, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
I was looking forward to this book long before I read it, and am glad to say it didn't disappoint. Sweet Irish Kiss tells the tale of Shaun Bell, a divorced workaholic, and Rachel Taylor, a young woman with serious trust issues.

Determined to get past their respective troubles and back into dating life, they both sign up for the 1Night Stand website, where they're introduced to one another as a suitable match. But are they a perfect match? After their night together, will they take the plunge and go for something more than a one night stand? Only time will tell...

This was a really enjoyable quickie read. I liked the characters and how you were thrown into the action with little preamble. There was just enough back story to understand the motives of the main characters and how their behaviour is affected, but the rest of the tale is pure action and naughtiness.

Overall, I thought Sweet Irish Kiss was an intriguing, sexy, naughty, romantic tale. I was hooked right from the beginning and didn't put it down until I was done. If you're looking for a contemporary sexy tale from a very talented writer, then look no further.

4.0 out of 5 stars United By Books ~ Review by Lindsey Hutchison October 22, 2011
Format:Kindle Edition
JoAnne Kenrick, you certainly brought sexy back to that Sweet Irish Kiss! Normally, I would put little snippets of a summary in my thoughts, but the description says it best. The cover is gorgeous and instantly drew my attention. The words, on my Kindle, kept me glued to this sexy 1Night Stand edition. The chemistry between the characters is definitely hot. Rachel has sass, yet you can tell under it there is a vulnerable side. While Shaun, can serve me a drink anytime with his handsome, shy self anytime he wants. Their personalities really come through in this short story. I also love how they burned the sheets up on their one night encounter. I admit I had a few swoon moments close to the end. Joanne, you never fail to displease me with a story yet and I look forward to the next.

I recieved a complimentary copy of the book in exchange for an honest review.

5.0 out of 5 stars just the right amount of saucy! March 14, 2012
Format:Kindle Edition
I have to admit this is my first venture into the 1 night stand series, and will more than likely try a few more after this! I must also admit that this is not my normal read, I'm more of a scare the living daylights out of you or make you cry like a baby type of book lover.

Having said that, this short story was the perfect amount of romance, & sauce to top it off! Shaun just makes you want to hit the gym to get into some sort of shape, in the hopes of being able to meet just his type. I have a bit of a soft spot for the Irish accent, and JoAnne writes it to perfection, I could hear Shaun & his pal Devlin talking as I was reading.

Rachel is also a well groomed character, and has obviously not had much luck with guys before, which is rather shocking with how she is described! The back story allows you to easily relate to Rachel, and regard her as you would a friend.

The story definitely takes you on a roller coaster ride, and it reads quite quick in places, but the story allows that momentum to build and it is a natural speed to it, not a struggle to read at all.

If you want a quick bedtime read to get your pulse racing that little bit faster, then this is definitely the book for you! Pick it up & give it a go, you'll more than likely love it!
