Overview

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?

    Bright Scoundrel is the fourth book I have read by author Lily S

    Bright Scoundrel is the fourth book I have read by author Lily Silver and one of my favorites so far. It is the story of Kieran O’Flaherty. Kieran spent much of his life living in the West Indies after being sold into servitude by his stepfather. Prior to the actual start of this book, he travels to England and his maternal grandfather. However, after his name appears in London papers attached to yet another scandal, he decides to flee London society and his grandfather and return to his ancestral home in Ireland. It is there that he meets Rose De Lacy, an independent young woman who has been working as the castle's steward.

    Kieran's return is not an easy one. An evil menacing spirit haunts the castle, and Kieran's people are reluctant to accept him. Undeterred, Kieran whom is adept in the magical arts, sets out the win the love and respect of his people and to cleanse his home. In the process he falls in love with the headstrong Rose.

    Lily Silver did a splendid job of blending together history and magic. At no time did I feel as if one aspect of the story was overtaking the other. She created well-developed characters who I came to care about and I wanted to see them both get their happily ever after. While the characters did have intimate relations, the scenes were tasteful and well-done. At no time did I fee uncomfortable reading them as occasionally happens to me in romance novels. All and all I think this was an excellent read and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a historical romance with a touch of magic.
