What a great read. Free also! This story gave us a look into the history of the Irish at this time. A story about a man who doesn't know who he is. William is sent as a spy and somewhere along the way fell in love with the people he was sent to watch. He also found the love of his life, at that pub Tragedy strikes and he loses everything. Wiliam realizes who he really is and what he needs to do. He becomes determined to do it no matter the cost. What a rare "free" find!

Was not expecting a homosexual love story, but glazing over those bits, it is a well written and descriptive story. I very much enjoyed the atmosphere at the pub, and got swept away with the dances and emotions. Well worth a read even if male love is a bit out of your comfort zone.

This romance is bewtween two guys but dont let that stop you from ready it. It is very good and the sex sense arent that detailed so if your not comfortable with gay sex this is still safe. Recommended and those of u who think i must be gay to give a good review should know im a straight female. Love the book!

Not what I expected in the way of the romance but done rather tastefully, I think. Good book all in all, glad I chose it.

Well written and kept my interest piqued. I found this under a search for "historical romance" and was surprised as I got into it that it was a gay romance. That being said, it did not get too explicit and I pretty much glossed over those parts.

Intrigue, adventure and romance:  This being the “Irish month” of March, and although I’m a day late for the 17th, Allegiance: A Dublin Novella by Heather Domin [smashwords, 2013] is is my St. Patrick’s Day contribution. The story is set in the period just after the so-called “Irish War of Independence” (1919 – 1921), and the signing of the Anglo-Irish treaty. William Young is a MI5 (Military Intelligence, Section 5) Agent, sent to Dublin to infiltrate the IRA (Irish Republican Army.) He does this successfully, posing as a barkeeper at the Flag and Three Pub. There—quite in pace with the story—he meets his intended target—Adam Elliot—who is described as: [A] bright-eyed young man, several years younger than himself, with his cap cocked too far in one direction and his grin cocked too far in the other. He was cleanfaced and well-dressed, pale brown hair curling out beneath his cap and clear skin glowing in the smoky light. Hands clapped him on the back as he approached the bar, and he smiled at each face in turn and dipped his head in greeting. The two gravitate toward one another, partly due to William’s prompting, but there is also a genuine attraction between them. I will also mention right here, I found it quite refreshing that neither spends much time worrying about being attracted to another man. Indeed, the only real soul searching is William’s who questions the wisdom (and well he might) of falling in love with a potential enemy. Nonetheless it happened, and I thought it was quite in keeping with the characters. Being both Irish and Catholic, I don’t ever recall going through a great deal of soul searching because I was attracted to boys. I was too busy trying to get them to notice me, or getting them off alone, so I thought the author handled this part very well. The ending, although not overly dramatic, was quite satisfactory, and I was left satisfied. I can’t provide any details for fear of spoiling it for others, but it also had a moral to it. As a relative novice (with only two novels to her credit) Heather Domin is a writer with a maturity well ahead of her experience. Her style is well nigh flawless, and her plot and structure are a delight to read. However, it is her understanding of the characters—both primary and secondary—that adds the charm that should be part and parcel of any Irish novel. Four and one-half bees.

This was an amazing story from the history to the characters. Beautifully written it had me crying and happy these two characters found love in such a difficult time as those of the troubles in Ireland as they called it. I would gladly pay for this book but am happy it was free, I highly recommend it. Love is love and this story told it beautifully.

I was surprised how much I really enjoyed this book. The characters were endearing but just wished it delved deeper.

Not at all what I was expecting. My search criteria included "Romance" and "Historical" -- not "Homosexual." Needs its own, separate category. Quit reading it the moment I realized where it was going -- yuk!
