She is left with an offer she cannot refuse...
Upon his death in 1823, English nobleman, Lord Peyton leaves his daughter Lady Aveline with two choices-stay single and inherit only a small farm in Ireland, where she might just be able to eke out a living, or get married and live in luxury, inheriting all his wealth and property. Fiercely independent, Aveline heads for Ireland only to run afoul of her father's farm manager, the devastatingly handsome Ciaran O''Devlin. Alone in a strange country, Aveline yearns for love and friendship, but Ciaran offers only criticism and disdain. Confused and angered by strange visions and her growing attraction to Ciaran, Aveline is determined to make the farm prosper-despite the insufferable Irishman.
He has a secret he cannot reveal...
Ciaran mistrusts Aveline's intentions and refuses to admit that a willful, English woman now owns the farm that should have been his. Although he insists Aveline should go back to England, he cannot deny their budding passion. Yet, he knows-even if she doesn't-that nothing will come of it. Not only can't a poor Irishman marry an English noblewoman, but when Aveline learns of his past, she'll want nothing more to do with him. Ciaran has always known that each decision carries a consequence, but it's only when he stands to lose Aveline that he realizes what a heavy price his past decisions may have.

To Love An Irishman was an interesting read but I found the hero a bit to unbending for my liking. Let's just say he was too darned stubborn to see what was right in front of him. The visions seen by the hero and heroine let us know what the future will bring, but that frustrating hero postpones the foregone plot conclusion because he's in denial about his feelings for the heroine.
