"When life has you down, pick up a book by Dorien Kelly!" Janet Evanovich

When Irish artist Vi Kilbride travels from her village of Ballymuir to prepare her beloved late grandmother's cottage in Duncarraig for sale, more than memories of the summers she'd spent growing up there await her. Long-ago love Liam Rafferty is back in town. Vi, who has kept her heart to herself since having it broken by Liam, finds herself drawn to him all over again. Time has spun back to that passionate summer when they'd first loved for Liam, too. But Vi and Liam are soon at odds. Liam has begun a search for Rafferty's Gold, a legendary treasure allegedly hidden by one of Vi's ancestors after her heart had been broken by a faithless Rafferty. Liam, with his high-tech search equipment, might think the ancient gold is his to do with as he pleases. But Vi, with only her often stubborn second sight and her grandmother's journals to aid her, knows the gold belongs in a museum. Will these two passionate treasure-seekers find a legendary love to go with the gold, or is their past too strong to conquer?

This full-length novel of approx. 98,000 words was print published as Hot Whispers of an Irishman in 2005. This preferred, updated e-book edition is the third book in the Ballymuir Series. The first two books, The Last Bride in Ballymuir and The Boldest Man in Ballymuir, are also available for reading on your NOOK.

    Great Author and great stories

    I did not think it possible to find so much to write about Vi that we didn't already know. These stories make you look at everyone you know and wonder what I don 't know and how I can get to know more. I've always liked talking to older people because they have such interesting stories to tell. It feels just like that when reading this Author's books. They make me feel so good. I can't bare knowing the story is almost over.

    GREAT SERIES

    Can't say enough good things about this series. I picked the Free one to start and HAD to buy the other two. So glad that I made the purchases. The way each character "finds" his/her love in each of the series is a fun, and believable tale. The story draws chuckles and smiles and a bit of emotion as Violet comes to realize that she cannot escape the love of her life this time around. Really enjoyed it. MORE MORE Dorien Kelly....
