Daughter of Ireland is the third title in Jove’s Irish Eyes series. It’s a shining new series with writers whose talents sparkle when they write about romance on the Emerald Isle. In this particular one, Moya Mahoney has just lost a kind elderly gentleman who took her in when all her relatives died. She is alone again… that is until American Rory O’Brien shows up at her door looking like a soaked rat. Moya lives for being Irish, she wants to continue the tradition of sharing Irish tales, and keeping the village in the quaint, quiet life that it is. Guess who is trying to go forward with some modern ideas for her life and village? You got it, Rory. Rory has his reasons for wanting to update the small town, and I won’t go in to them because I don’t want to spoil the story.

The situation and closeness of these two, of course, leads to a mutual attraction and I was impressed by how the author handled it. It’s a sweet romance, that is light on intimacy, heavy on characters and backdrop; an A plus in my book. Daughter of Ireland, along with The Irish Devil and To Marry an Irish Rogue so far make up the tempting, romantic Irish Eyes Series!
