Overview

Lady Hope is an ancestor of the high king of Ireland and has a spirited soul that is set on adventure before she must settle into an arranged marriage.

Colin of Shanekill can charm any woman into his bed and conquer any warrior in battle. But true love has eluded him, or has he eluded love? While on a mission for the Irish Devil to find Lady Hope a spoiled aristocrat who ran away from responsibility, he comes across a young lad, Harold, in dire need of help. He takes charge of him, seeing to his care and teaches him what it takes to become a man and what it takes to charm a woman.

Once identities are discovered can the charmer tempt the impetuous Lady Hope or will she teach him to finally love?

    Awesome!

    Awesome! What else could I say? The characters are colorful, the woman bold, the man just as stubborn, you'll love this peice. It's a literary masterpiece. I recommend this book to anyone who needs a book that will capture you and keep your eyes glued from page to page. It may look like a thick book, but every word is absorbed and the story warms your heart. Have a good time with this one!

    Great Story

    Loved this 2nd book to the Irish Devil. The only thing wrong, how could someone not know that he was looking at a women and not a lad. Come on. She was 21 and the lad was supposed to be 12. Other than that, it was a great story.

    humerous and worth the time to read

    I loved Hope's adventureous nature and her ability to pull one over on Collin and make him come undone. This was a good story, kept my interest and made me laugh at times. I've you've ever wished you could be a fly on a wall this would be a good book for you, as that's pretty much what Hope finds herself being as she's tramping through the woods with these men.

    Excellent as a second in the series. A little long getting to the point, but a wonderful love story nonetheless. I would love to see a third book of the series.

    Well at least it was cheap...

    I was disapointed in this book. It has a meandering plot and laughable characters. Not sure if I'll pay for anymore of her books.

    With pain

    It pains me to say it since I love all the books she writes but I truelly hated this book. The hero was a man with no self control and I am amazed with characters like this that they dont have all sorts of STDs if in each village they get they accept invitaton to every bed never mind the unwanted pregnancies. And the heroin just went along with him while he just slept around and at the end of the book when he finds out that she had loved him all along he was just worried about the conversations she had heard from men around the camp fire and not the fact that he basically hit on every thing in a skirt. I like a book when a rogue finds his match but I had to skip at least ten chapters since it was painful to read the same thing over and over again. When you read her highland triology and her other seriese that engage your emotion so much that you fall in love with her head strong but loveable females and hard exterior but mushy inside heros it is hard to read this book. I am still a big fan of her books but this one unlike the Irish devil will end up in my archive books. So if you want to read this series read the first book and leave the second unless you want to read a book that the first 500 pages of the story out of 800 is about the hero servicing any one who comes in his path and he is completely clueless to his surroundings and the woman by his side who is acting like a boy. Very disapointed

    Lots of repetition

    The story was so so. Definitely not five star worthy. The reason i say that is because the dialogue was pretty much the same regarding the conflict between the two main characters. There really was no depth, and not much of a plot.
    I also agree with another reviewer that could not believe that Colin could not see Hope as a woman for so long....especially since she really did not do that much to disguise herself.
    But, it is a romance novel intended for mere entertainment. I just wish that the author could have developed a better plot since it was over 800 pages.

    Come again?.....................................................

    Come again?............................................................................................
    Colin a serial skirt chaser cannot tell the difference in looks between a beautiful 22 year old women and a 12 year old boy. Maybe he's myopic. Frankly the premise was too stupid to consider.
