Dearest Irish concludes Lyn Horner's chronicles of the amazing Devlin siblings. Each possesses a rare psychic talent they hide for fear of persecution. Set 1876, this book stars Rose, youngest of the three. Rose has an extraordinary ability to heal with her mind, a secret gift that has caused her great pain in the past.

Yet, after discovering Rose’s healing gift, Jack risks everything, kidnapping her from her brother's Texas ranch in a desperate attempt to save his dying mother.
As Jack spirits Rose away into the heart of Indian Territory, she comes to accept his reason for abducting her but fears the feelings he stirs within her. Tested by natural forces and white men who revile Jack and scorn Rose for riding with him, Jack soon discovers the greatest risk he faces may be caring too much for his lovely paleface captive.
Will Rose heal Jack's mother? How will his Indian relatives take to a white woman in their midst? And what will Rose's brother do when he tracks the pair down?
