Meet the Author

Born to an Anglophile school-district clerk and an asphalt paver who loved to fish, J. Jay Kamp has been writing books about England and the sea since 1991. Her love affair with country houses has compelled her to visit over one hundred historic properties and spend far too much time in the British Library. With Admiral Lord Nelson and George Vancouver as heroes, J. Jay has an unrelenting appetite for maritime history. Touring Victory, Nelson's flagship, was one of the highlights of her many travels, as was visiting the Mayan ruins of Tikal in Guatemala, snorkeling the beautiful barrier reef of Belize, taking in the Georgian architecture of Dublin, Ireland, and walking the windswept landscapes of the West Country in England. Her favorite place in the world, however, remains closed to her: Protection Island in Washington State, where she spent the summers of her youth. It is a National Wildlife Refuge and, as such, off limits to the public.


J. Jay Kamp's work has won two contests sponsored by the Romance Writers of America: The Bayman's Bride took top honors in the 1997 "Emerald City Opener" (historical category), while The Last Killiney (then called 'Til Death Do Us Part) received honorable mention in the paranormal "On the Far Side" contest the same year.


Having been an administrative assistant for most of the last decade, J. Jay is currently a full-time writer and mother of three (cats, that is). She is presently working on a new project, a story about Ravenna Evans and the Irish Rebellion of 1798.

I tried to get into this book but it was just too confusing and hard to follow. I think the author wanted to write a time travel book but got ahead of himself (herself?) And didnt spend enough time developing the characters or the storyline. It just went way too fast and jumped from plotline to plotline. I gave up about a quarter of the way into the story.

Very original story and couldn't put it down. The only thing missing was when Paul first meets his son...

The Last Killiney is a poignant story of eternal love. The author weaves the characters into an interlocking tapestry colored by love, jealousy, friendship, pride, and devotion. It crosses the boundaries of time and social position, creating a belief that all things are possible. This novel takes the reader to a depth of emotion rarely seen.

This book was pretty confusing/hard to read till about 1/2 way thru and then started to pick up momentum, its just a shame that it took that long as that there were several times I just wanted to quit. You have to get to the end before you can think back to the beginning to realize what the author's plot was.

This book has much more depth than the typical time travel plot line. For those looking for a light and fluffy romance, this is not it. If you want fully developed, complex characters and a plot with development that will compel you to stay up later than you should, this is it.
