Format: Mass Market Paperback
In 1799 off the coast of Massachusetts, Derry O'Riordan fails to break out of his chains as the ship he sails sinks. His younger brother risked everything for a free Ireland, but the revolt failed. The English convicted his brother and sent him to sail on this slave ship to spend time in an overseas prison community. Derry knew his sickly sibling could never survive. In addition, the lad has a family. The noble Derry replaced him on the sinking vessel. As he nears death, Kerry vows to find his beloved Annie even if it takes eternity to do so.
In 1998, Katie Coyle arrives at Cape Cod's Pond House where she will live for the next two years while teaching at East Bay. Katie meets Mary Monahan who tells her about the ghost and the nearby energy stones. When Katie encounters Kerry the ghost inside the circle of stones, she believes he is an overseas friend visiting Mary. As Kerry and Katie fall in love, he realizes the futility of it all even as she begins to conclude he is not just from Ireland.
THE GHOST AND KATIE COYLE is a spirited otherworldly romance that sub-genre fans will find very entertaining. The story line moves rather quickly with the subplot of college politics adding an earthly anchor. Though likable, the lead couple is the typical star-crossed lovers that populate these tales. The support cast provide a depth and a Cape Cod unique-feel to the plot. With this novel and the enjoyable A ONCE AND FUTURE LOVE, readers will feel that Ms. Kelleher is rapidly ascending to the pinnacle of the supernatural romance field.

Tremendous Chemistry! 4 Dec. 1999
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I loved this heroine, Katie Coyle, and was so glad that she found someone better than the stuffed-shirt boyfriend she starts with. When sexy Derry O'Riordan shows up, there's no contest. Her dreams become filled with a heat and energy Mr. Stuffed Shirt could never ignite. It's only a matter of time before dreams of Derry turn into realtime mating dances within the mysterious circle of Stones which stand in the woods behind Katie's charming new home. The irresistable visitor from Ireland always seems to be waiting for her when she walks through the forest... but a few things don't add up. Who is he, really? And why is he so curious about a 19th century nobleman from Ireland who disappeared mysteriously?
Some local intrigue at the college where Katie teaches, along with transoceanic help from her twin sister in Ireland, move this plot along and makes for a fascinating story. Don't miss the hot connection between this cool ghost and Katie Coyle. It's a winner.

Ghost Story with a Twist 5 Mar. 2003
By M. Rondeau - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Mass Market Paperback
1799 - Derry O'Riordan, the tenth Earl of Kilmartin is imprisoned on a slave ship bound for Austrailia. He is taking the place of his brother Timothy, who was part of a rebel uprising, but because he had a wife, a child and another on the way, Derry pulled strings and switched places with him. Derry's beloved, Annie was lost to him and he felt that he had nothing else to live for. A violent storm blows the ship off course, into the rocks along the Massachusetts coast and Derry, manacled in heavy chains manages to make it to shore, but dies of exposure and injuries received.
1998 - Present Day - Katie Coyle has accepted a position to teach Irish studies at East Bay college in a small town on the Massachusetts shore. Along with the position comes a charming cottage overlooking the sea that Katie Katie had an immediate attraction and a sense of `coming home' to that included on the grounds a ring of standing stones that had Celtic writings on them. After some very sensual dreams Katie founds herself walking in the ring one day, and she happened upon Derry!
This was a ghost story with an amazing twist, that most will find quite interesting. A ghost that when within and a short distance from the ring of stones could be seen by all, not just a few, who was to all intents and purposes solid. Derry was the missing Earl of Kilmartin, a mystery that academia's had been trying to prove for some time and one of Katie's colleagues who was intent on fabricating proof to show him as a traitor. Couple this intense plot with an amazingly tender and beautiful star-crossed lovers seduction and you have a sure fire winner in this paranormal genre!

The Ghost And Katie Coyle Is A Page Turner 8 Dec. 2014
By Kimberly Lingren - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed reading The Ghost And Katie Coyle.

A love that started 200 years ago in Ireland, was cruelly cut short. Derry O'Riorden has existed for two centuries with no hope of escaping his fate. Katie is a young history scholar who resembles Derry's only love Caitlin. Katie is also the new resident of the cottage on the property Derry haunts. With the help of a old friend, Derry reveals himself and reaches out to Katie in hopes of finding out what happened to his brother for whom he forfeited his life. Together they try to solve the mysteries of the past and a love is awakened, Derry despaired was forever lost to him.

I really enjoyed this story. As the story develops the mystery of Derry's existence and the impossible love that is undeniable between the two, kept me turning the pages.

A book you will read more than once... 27 Aug. 2014
By Banks - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition
This book is wonderful. I fell in love with the characters, and the setting. I long to visit the area this author wrote about. I wish there was an exact cottage over the sea, just like the one she describes. I could almost really feel the whole place, even the little town and college as she describes them. The main characters are everything you hope they will be, but I was fascinated that even the secondary characters felt real. The story line grabs you from the beginning and there are interesting plot twists to the very end. Bravo, Annie Kelleher!
