His Wicked Celtic Kiss
This fast-paced and fun novella focuses on Julie and Lorcan as their story continues.
Lorcan is Irish, and in the tiny Maryland town for just six months. He’s not into ‘fixing’ himself or his females, and happy ever after just isn’t something he’s considered. A bit edgy, a former soldier with his own issues, he’s got that ‘bad boy’ vibe down pat.
Julie is a different case: loaded with insecurities about her size and weight, and her psyche hasn’t quite caught up with her actual physical reality. Personally, Julie was so needy and so obsessed with her own self-image that it didn’t seem to me that Lorcan would EVER come to trust in her as his potential match. Her insecurities, while understandable, were so omnipresent in her own thoughts and point of view that it soon dissolved into white noise, and Lorcan’s attempts to deal with her and the approaches he took were far more interesting.
Karyn Gerrard does give you characters that will frustrate and annoy you, to her credit they also have you needing to know more and see just where things will go. And go they do! Highlighting personal inconsistencies as they both will accept behavior and attitude from one another that they find abhorrent in themselves, while in my head I was screaming “BUT YOU” and “DON’T You SEE where” frequently. But I couldn’t put this book down as I needed to see just what would happen. And you will too!

It took just one teasing wink and a sexy Irish lilt from bad boy Lorcan Byrne to turn Julie Denison’s world upside down. The problem is, he’s only in town for six months, and happily ever after isn’t in this world traveler’s vocabulary.
Julie’s worked hard to get her life in a good place—dropping substantial weight and getting a great job at her friend’s bakery. But this handsome charmer is just as tempting as any of the decadent pastries she sells, and she can’t resist his advances for long. Julie fully expects Lorcan to break her heart—but she’s planning to enjoy every second she can of their explosive chemistry.
After years of danger as a soldier and a spy, Lorcan fled to tiny Rockland, Maryland for some boring downtime. He didn’t count on meeting someone who could ignite his libido and soothe his damaged heart, and their passion soon leads to deeper feelings. But can Julie convince Lorcan he has more to offer her than just his wicked Celtic kiss?
