Classic Rake and Spinster clash, with a paranormal twist:
He’s an Irish sorcerer and she’s an advocate for female rights.
Notorious womanizer Kieran O'Flaherty flees to his ancestral home in Ireland to escape the scandal attached to his name. The London papers have it wrong, Kieran doesn’t seduce women--they always come to him. He’s a druid, in tune with the forces of nature, so is it his fault that women find him alluring? When he arrives at Roisin Dubh Castle he finds a woman in charge of the estate, a prickly spinster determined to challenge him at every turn. He likes the challenge Rose presents, as she seems to be the only woman immune to his charms.
Near poverty, Rose de Lacy paints Irish landscapes for tourists and takes on the position of steward to a neglected estate. For Rose, the joke is on the absentee English landlord as she’s known only as the Honorable R. de Lacy in their correspondence. When the elderly owner's handsome grandson arrives, Rose is certain she'll be fired. Her serene life is turned upside down by this upstart from London rumored to seduce anything in a skirt. As a sensible woman who enjoys the freedom spinsterhood affords her, she’s determined to ignore O’Flaherty’s sensual charm. It proves difficult as his nearness incites sensations she never dreamed a woman could have.
As the lost heir of the O’Flahertys, Kieran struggles to win the hearts of his clan as the hereditary chieftain. He encounters beings of myth; a clever fae, an elemental spirit and the Banshee of the O’Flahertys. Can they help him free Roisin Dubh Castle from a menacing evil?
