Long ago, before men came to the shores of Ireland, there lived a race of gods who fought a great evil to keep their island from sinking into the sea. Knowing men were destined to rule the land they loved, the gods created four great treasures to guard their beloved isle should the great evil rise to destroy it once more. Thousands of years would come to pass before the treasures were needed, before man would have to fight, to save Ireland from destruction. Brigid MacQuill has spent her entire life healing people in her small, Irish town. After watching Morgan and Quinn nearly die battling a Celtic monster, she is determined to help everyone get back to normal. But when a love from her past returns to Ireland, events set in motion long ago, come screaming back to present. After being injured in Iraq, Dermot Callaghan is returning to Ireland to heal, and reconnect with the woman he left behind six years ago. They discover Brigid is the keeper of a treasure that holds great power, but her life will be put on the line to guard it. Will they get a second chance at love when their lives, and the fate of the world, hang in the balance? Or will fate tear them apart again? With a mix of magic, suspense, and plenty of romance, Irish Heart will take you on a journey that turns myth into reality and shows that the magic of love can heal all things.

From the Author:

I love being a mom and a wife. I've been married nearly 12 years to a man I would do anything for and have a son (11) and a daughter(7). I see so much of myself in both of them that it sometimes brings me to tears (happy ones).I also love writing. Romance to be specific. I love the happily ever after that I believe everyone deserves. My stories aren't exactly the 'stop and smell the roses' type romances. While I believe everyone deserves happiness and true love, I know that sometimes, you have to walk a hard road to find it. Those are the types of stories I like to write. The happily ever after that wasn't found, it was earned. I work to earn mine on a daily basis and so do my characters. On other side-notes, I play acoustic guitar, sing, read like I get paid to, and support a rather unhealthy addiction to Pinterest. I love to cook, which combined with my pinning addiction, leads to many experiments foisted on my unsuspecting husband and kids, mostly with good results. But sometimes, the dogs gets what the family refuses to eat. And they never complain. 

From the Inside Flap:

She could feel someone following her. She didn't have to look to know who was silently keeping pace with her. She could hear his heartbeat and had known it was him. The beat was as familiar as her own.
She stopped at the cliff's edge, knowing he would stop too. She would have to face him eventually and she hated putting off the inevitable. His boots crunched on the brown grass as he walked towards her, the sound barely heard over the wind and waves.
"Hello, Brig."
"Dermot," she replied as steadily as she could, staring unblinking at the angry sea. Her voice still came out a bit shaky and she clenched her jaw in frustration.
"It's been a while," his voice was harder than she had remembered.
"Six years," she answered shortly, still not looking at him. Anger was replacing frustration and she clenched her fists until she felt pain.
"I know," his voice softened as he moved to stand beside her.
"What do you want, Dermot?" she asked, crossing her arms over her chest, trying to keep her eyes on the water.
"I don't know," he answered, sounding surprised. "I couldn't sleep. My dreams were crazy so I decided to walk. I didn't think you'd be here too."
"I was on my way to Morgan's," she answered, not revealing that her dreams had woken her as well.
"Ah, that'd be Quinn's new wife," Dermot murmured. "Never thought Quinn for one to settle down. Especially to an American lass with a wee child."
"There's nothing wrong with that," Brigid snapped and in her anger finally turned towards him. She gasped when she saw his face and any anger she was feeling drained away from her, leaving her cold and empty.
"I was wondering when you'd look at me," he whispered, glancing at the ground.
Dermot had always been handsome. She used to tease him that he belonged in Hollywood with his dark, untamed hair and chiseled features. The boy she had known was now gone. Jagged wounds, just beginning to heal, covered his face and neck, mauling his features. Stitches pulled tight at the skin amid dark bruises. If she hadn't known him, she would never have recognized him. The only thing that hadn't changed was his tousled brown hair and blue eyes. They were the color of the ocean in the summer, only now they appeared much older and full of sadness.
"You don't have to stare, Brigid," he chided, intending to make it a joke.
"By the gods, Dermot," she whispered, moving towards him. She reached her hands to his face but dropped them when he flinched from her touch.
"No, Brig," he commanded, gently. "They'll heal on their own." He saw the flash of pain on her face at his words and felt a twinge of guilt.
"What's happened to you?" she asked softly, not completely referring to his wounds.
"A lot of things," he answered after a minute. "But most recently, a suicide bomber in Iraq. Wrong place, wrong time, I suppose." He shrugged, acting as if it didn't matter. He didn't want to remember the face he had clearly seen in the ball of fire as it had barreled toward him. "But needless to say, I decided I was overdue for a little holiday, so here I am."
"Dermot, let me..." Brigid tried again to lift her hands to his face but he pushed her arms back down, ignoring the spark he felt when they touched.
"No," his voice was rough and Brigid's arms fell limp. "I don't need you to heal me anymore, Brigid."
"Go to hell, you bloody bastard," her voice was quiet but fierce as tears fell down her face, mixing with the rain. Holding back a sob, she ran away from him, unable to face the pain of being so close to him, yet unable to touch.
Dermot watched her as she ran, all too aware that things had not gone as he had planned.
"Bugger me," he cursed at himself as he turned away from the cliffs and began the cold walk home.
