Overview

Wild at heart . . . or is she?

When comely lass Rose Larkin sets sail from New York to Ireland with her eccentric aunt Kate, she is determined to live as a free-spirited adventuress. After all, Aunt Kate advised her to live life to the fullest -- without a stodgy husband weighing her down -- even though Rose would honestly prefer a quiet house in the country with a loving husband and lots of children. Then she meets the rakishly handsome Irishmen Cullen O'Banyon. He seems the sort of man who would fancy an adventurous girl -- just like Rose is supposed to be.

But, like Rose, the roguish Cullen appeared to be something he is not. And only when they see each other as they really are will their rue feelings for each other show--if it's not already too late.

Award-winning author Alice Duncan, writing as Rachel Wilson, lives with a herd of wild dachshunds (enriched from time to time with fosterees from New Mexico Dachshund Rescue) in Roswell, New Mexico. She’s not a UFO enthusiast; she’s in Roswell because her mother’s family settled there fifty years before the aliens crashed.

'My Wild Irish Rose' by Rachel Wilson was the best book I have read in quite some time! I loved the way Rachel made the feelings so intense and showing, yet the way Rose and Cullen did not see it. I deeply wish to see another novel from this author! I love her writing style! I loved this plot, too. All of the other romances are usually the strong women, but I liked how Rose was so gentle and unknowing here. I want another book from you, Rachel!

With the burial of her father in New York City, Rose Larkin has only one living relative, her Aunt Kate. Knowing she needs money, Rose plans to marry one of her boring suitors, but Kate objects. Kate plans to fund Rose so that her niece can live life to the fullest as an adventuress before settling into the doldrums of marriage.

The duo travels to Dublin where they meet rogue Everett Costello who sets up the naive women so that he can have his way with the lovely Rose. Unable to remain on the sidelines, horse farmer Cullen O'Banyon intercedes and rescues Rose from the dastardly clutches of Everett. Kate informs Cullen that she found the perfect job for Rose to begin her adventures. Kate will sing and dance at the French Academy. Cullen explains that a lady does not sing nor dance at the French Academy. Unable to resist the two ladies, Cullen, the widowed father of two lads decides it is time for him to have an adventure too.

MY WILD IRISH ROSE is an amusing historical romance set in the last decade of the nineteenth century. Rose and Cullen are a delightful charcaters who prefer a simple life, but go through the motions of adventuring due to their caring for Aunt Kate. Rachel Wilson provides her fans with a warm, humorous tale that is simply fun to read.
