I really loved these books - had to buy the whole series. I was up reading them into the early morning. Once started I really could not put them down. Full of excitment, thrilling to read just enough descriptive facts with the relationship of the two characters which were intoduced in the earlier book. I cannot wait for her new one but the Daughter of Erin series Fantastic - try to read them in order as the sisters are introduced as you go a long - WELL WORTH A READ !!!!!!!

Is love the ultimate leap of faith out of your safety net? 31 May 2011
By Mary J. Gramlich - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Lady Caroline Blacknall may be the youngest but she is also the strongest and most tenacious of the sisters. She decides to get on a ship in the worst of traveling season to find her way to Sir Grant Dunmore and his isolated island so that he will give up what she craves the most in life - The Chronicle of Kildare. Caroline is a bluestocking and has a passion for historical information and that book will fulfill her inquisitive search for knowledge or so she thinks.

Grant never would have expected to see Caroline again after the disaster that drove him to the island he now rules from his haunted castle, but when she shows up he realizes all too quickly that she has grown up to become the sister he feels is the one that he was meant to be with. He has saved her before and now Grant starts to believe that she may be his complete redemption in love. Caroline expected to be greeted by a bitter and ruined man in Grant yet what she encounters is a few scars and allot of attitude in a ridiculously attractive man.

However, Grant is hiding a terrible secret that is proving difficult to keep from Caroline especially when visitors arrive unexpectedly at his door. When the truth of what he is really up to conflicts with her chances to get The Chronicle of Kildare the fireworks take place in bed as well as the library. Caroline wants that book but Grant needs to figure out how to keep her happy, his visitors occupied, and a war from exploding on his own island. Grant will do whatever it takes to protect Caroline even drag her home and admit to his sins before faith and family in order to have her in his life forever.

The only bad moment in this book is when you finish and know the series is concluded. These women are sassy, independent, and incredible characters that are matched up with great men and the stories have been historically enlightening. I am proud to be a fan of Ms. McKee's knowing that while this series ends there are so many more waiting to be written.

Worth the Wait 2 Jun. 2011
By Jessica McKelden Cave - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
I can't even begin to describe how much I was looking forward to this book. I devoured Countess of Scandal (The Daughters of Erin) and Duchess of Sin (Daughters of Erin). The romances were believable, the heroines someone you wanted to be friends with, and the heroes to die for.

This book was no different.

Caroline is quirky and smart - a bluestocking in every sense of the word. She usually has her nose tucked into a book and she's even writing one of her own. After being pulled into a dangerous and unfortunate situation in Anna's novel, she is forevermore entwined with dazzling ton bad boy Sir Grant Dunmore. This is only part of the reason she goes off looking for him and finds herself stuck on a tiny little island that seems more legend than reality. Caroline gets caught up in Grant's secrets, despite his attempts otherwise.

Grant and Caroline are well-matched and quite perfect together. Their love and attraction are blatantly obvious and very real. I think I fell for Grant right alongside Caroline.

While I am very sad that the Blacknall sisters' books are over, I look forward to anything else that Laurel McKee chooses to write. The plots, characters, and writing itself are all fabulous and I can't wait for the next books!

Great Read 1 Jun. 2011
By LAS Reviewer - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
Lady Caroline Hartley sets off on a mad, secret journey to windswept Muirin Inish, an island off the Irish coast, ostensibly to find an ancient manuscript, but also to find the man she's never been able to forget...Grant Dunmore.

The recently widowed and youngest Blacknall sister, bookish Caroline finds herself shipwrecked, and then rescued by the very man she was traveling to see. Grant Dunmore carries the bedraggled Caroline to his island castle where she is bathed, fed, and given clean clothing. Puzzling to Caroline is Grant's change. Not only is the once devastatingly handsome former rake scarred in face and body, he is a loner, quiet and secretive, yet he still pulls Caroline in a way she's never before felt. Marriage to her much older husband was a companionable mating but not a passionate one. Now, she's on a hunt to find the Chronicle of Kildare, which she suspects Grant still possesses. What she discovers is much, much more--lust, danger, and adventure only read about in her books, but never experienced.

Grant, estranged cousin to the Duke of Adair, has forsaken his pro-Union stance and now works on redeeming himself. He's on a secret and dangerous mission which he refuses to reveal to Caroline. However, as they spend time together, and as the danger ratchets up, he realizes two things: he's never forgotten his desire for the bluestocking young woman who seems not at all repulsed by his disfigurement and they seem to take turns rescuing one another.

When they have to flee the island for Dublin, Grant trusts Caroline enough to tell her part of his plan. Caroline must now decide if Grant has truly changed from the self-serving man he was, even though she doesn't know the real reason for their trip to Dublin or who he's going to meet. What she does know is that she's never before felt passion as she does with Grant, and can she bear to part from him once they reach their destination?

Lady of Seduction is book three in Ms. McKee's Daughters of Erin. I enjoyed very much the story of Caroline and Grant, loved his transformation from rake to concerned lover and patriot. Both characters are well drawn, and the setting of Ireland following the 1798 uprising and Unification is one not commonly written about in historical romances and I appreciated its unique appeal.

This Irish history enthusiast felt Ms. McKee did her homework well. That said, there were a few bothersome items: initially, Caroline's purpose seemed somewhat indecisive. She was all over the map with her feelings and I felt both Caroline and Grant could have declared their feelings for each other sooner than they did. Also, there are multiple uses of the term "climax" for orgasm which etymologically did not come into use until 1918, which was a bit too anachronistic for this linguistic purist. I also wondered why Grant uttered numerous Irish exclamations but never used Irish phrases at any other time.

Despite the niggles, other readers will enjoy Caroline's and Grant's story as I did, and will warm to a well-conceived, unique plot. Ms. McKee does an outstanding job with setting, drama and sensuality and populates her stories with enchanting characters.

Romance with an Irish lad 3 April 2012
By Jessica (Peace Love Books) - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
As the second Irish romance I've ever read, I'm starting to think I've been missing out on an amazing genre! I was really intrigued by the opening scene, when Caroline's ship is caught in a terrible storm and she is thrown out to sea. But of course, the heroine can't die in the first chapter, so the handsome Grant Dunmore is there to save her! And I fell in love with Grant from the first moment he was mention. He is a brooding, angry Irish man who has made many mistakes in his past. Despite trying to make up for his mistakes, he still falls for Caroline and is the sweetest gentleman to her. Though I haven't read the first two books of this series when Caroline and Grant first met, Lady of Seduction does a fine job recapping their history together so that readers aren't confused. What I liked about Caroline and Grant's relationship is that they're always there to save each other, it's not just about the man saving the damsel in distress. They are so good for each other that I just couldn't get enough of their relationship. The only thing that bugged me about this book is that there were some slow parts and I got really confused in the war talk parts. The different sides and people in the battles were hard to keep track of. But I really enjoyed the romance and relationship that Caroline had with the handsome Irish lad that I could only dream of as being my own. I seriously have to start reading more romance books in this setting because I once I crack open the book, I can't help but devour every word of them!

Lady of Seduction 19 Aug. 2011
By MSEreads - Published on
Format: Mass Market Paperback
This is an engaging read with steady intrigue and growing romance.

Lady Caroline is the quiet bluestocking of the Blacknall daughters. She met Sir Grant four years earlier (Duchess of Sin) when he showed her the wonderful antique manuscript The Chronicle of Kildare. She was fascinated by the book and the man but suffered disillusionment when Grant kidnaped her older sister and her. Grant was injured in a fire as he escaped and Caroline didn't really expect to see him again.

Now Caroline's older, scholarly husband has died and she is restless. She sets out to the isle of Muirin Inish with the purpose of seeing The Chronicle of Kildare. Of course to see the book she will have to see Grant. Before Caroline reaches the isle she is shipwrecked. She is pulled from the water and awakens to look into the eyes of the man she seeks. Caroline still finds him devastatingly attractive even with the burn scars along the left side of his face.

Grant has secluded himself in a derelict castle on a reclusive isle. He knows that his past was misdirected and he hopes to find a way to redeem himself. He has dreamed of his short exposure to Caroline but he never expected to see her again.

Caroline is stranded by storms in a castle that is shrouded in mystery and darkness. Although Grant is willing to give her access to his library he isn't willing to let her see The Chronicle and he wants her to remain out of sight while he receives some expected guests. Caroline doesn't obey orders well and manages to stumble into troubles. First she finds secret doors in the library and later she runs into the French Captain whom Grant was trying to hide her from.

The story is driven by the growing relationship between Caroline and Grant. The romance is lovely and sensual. Running behind the romance is the underlying intrigue involving the United Irish rebellion. There are spies, betrayals, murder attempts, a race against time and pretty much constant danger.

The writing is easy, the descriptions rich, and the story moves along well. The combination of action and romance makes for an engaging story presented with the backdrop of an interesting historical event. I love this summary that underlies their love: "I save you, you save me,"... "I think it's our fate."
