Shay Devlin is descended from Irish
kings…or so his father always told him. Shay is perfectly
content to be a “normal” guy who owns a business making
chimneys. He is frustrated with all the snow as it will
seriously impact his business. Shay is about to leave the pub
when a beautiful crazy lady comes in.
Ula really is not crazy, she is just an
Irish princess on a mission. She needs to save Meara, the
woman who raised her, from the evil Balor. Ula has the
ability to make people do what she wants for short periods of
time. This seems to work on everyone but Shay and she needs
his help the most.
Ula weaves a spell over several of the
men in the pub. As the affects of her magic wear off, she is
faced with a roomful of angry men. Shay cannot believe this
woman has caused all this commotion, he is not even sure how
she did it but he cannot leave her to deal with it. Once he
saves her, Shay does not know what to do with Ula. He
reluctantly takes Ula home and tries to convince himself that
he is not really attracted to her—he is pretty certain that
she is a bit crazy.
Ula needs Shay’s help to save Meara, but
he seems unwilling to help. Shay and Ula are drawn to each
other, but Ula has been told all her life exactly what her
destiny is and Shay is not it. He lets Ula spend the night
and after that things just a take a turn for the stranger.
Will Ula be able to save Meara? And what will come of the
growing attraction between Shay and herself?
Kiss of Blarney was an
interesting read. Penelope Marzec gives us a little bit of
everything…fun, romance, and an evil to slay. I enjoyed the
chemistry between Shay and Ula and it was especially
interesting as Shay was not ever really sure about Ula’s
sanity. Kiss of Blarney was an interesting way
to spend a few hours.
