Donovan O'Shea is about as handsome as they come, smart, pleasant and he has the Sight. Plagued from his early years with this gift, his imaginary friends were really true in his eyes. A gift inherited from his Mum, little did he know that it would be the bane of his existence as the years moved on. Donovan is about as Irish as you can get and has a lilting brogue that will caress you like a lover's kiss.
Rylie Powell is a sensually beautiful American in search of her roots of heritage. A woman on a mission, she is bound and determined to find the father she hasn't seen since she was five years old. Rylie has two weeks with little but a birth certificate and a photo to go on but luckily for her she has patience.
Poor Donovan having left Ireland for the States years prior is once again in his homeland and having to face the demons of his past. His da's property is part of an archaeological dig with items being found that date back to the Romans. As Donovan prepares to sell the property that once belonged to his family, an unlikely discovery of a body halts everything. As if that's not bad enough, he is suddenly plagued with a woman who claims to be his half sister. A persistent, luscious American woman that instantly stirs his blood to the boiling point. Talk about Luck of The Irish!!Read more ›
An Irish lad trying to forget his 'gift' and an American girl trying to find her father are brought together in a small town in Ireland. As Rylie trys to locate her father, Donovan must use his clairvoyant ability, called "The Sight", to stir up old family secrets that may have been better off being left buried. The twists and turns of the mystery of their family legacy grows as people start turning up dead. The chemistry between Rylie and Donovan is intense it is hard for them to ignore, but would they have to fight these desires if they find they are related? A climatic ending finds Rylie her answers, but Donovan finds things he wasn't expecting to find.
I truly loved this book!! I wasn't sure what to expect with it being a first time author, but the book swept me away to Ireland and had me at the end of the book WAY too soon! It has the perfect mix of genres that doesn't over do it on too much romance or mystery. The author seemed to have done her research on Irish history and lore to be come up with "The Sight" that Donovan had and how it mixed in with the landscape of the story.
I would recommend this book to my friends to read...you can easily read it within a couple days.
The part that I had serious trouble with was the early attraction between Rylie and Donovan. They were kissing and making out before the DNA was collected. Sure Donovan was sure they weren't related, but wonder if he was wrong? And Rylie, she was sure he was her half-brother. Ewe! That was something I couldn't get passed. Even though the mystery of Donovan's mother and her death was well played out and the paranormal flavor added spice to the plot, Rylie and Donovan's early attraction tainted the remainder of the story for me.
Donovan doesn't for one moment believe that Rylie is his half sister, but he agrees to help her with her search. The two are very attracted to each other and the situation becomes even more complicated when a body is found on some property owned by Donovan's family. Donovan has been blessed/cursed with the "Sight", which is kind of a sixth sense with a time travel element and is drawn into the investigation because of his "gift". As Donovan and Rylie cope with their growing attraction and the question of her paternity, they become embroiled in some dangerous family secrets that threaten to put both of their lives in danger.
I'm on the fence about this one. While I liked the concept, it just didn't make for compelling reading. The story started strong then seemed to lose focus, finally picking up some steam in the last quarter or so. I did think that the author did a great job of describing the setting, making the Irish countryside come alive - very vivid and nicely drawn. Rylie and Donovan were well developed characters but their romance was tainted (for me) by the fact that their attraction started when Rylie firmly believed that they shared the same father. I don't know about anyone else, but I don't care how hot a guy is, if I believed we shared some DNA I'm pretty sure I could keep my libido in check!
Finally, the parts of the story dealing with Donovan's "gift" just felt a little awkward.Read more ›
