Ms. Hendrix paints an enticing word portrait of Irish village life as I remembered it from my visit to Ireland. She has also created a believable love story with a hero and heroine who possess human failings, but who also possess the ability to know when they are wrong and apologize. I enjoyed the interaction between Brian Hanrahan and Tara O'Connell and would have liked to have seen more focus on the storyline between Tara and Brian, involving Brian's business ventures and Tara's perceptions and prejudices about them and Brian, although the storyline involving the women of Kilbooly was entertaining.
If you are looking for a way to spend an evening or two absorbing the flavor of Ireland and getting a warm, enjoyable love story in the process, then this book is for you.
Brian Hanrahan lives a carefree life in Kilbooly. As one of Ireland's richest men, he has never wanted for anything. He is stunned when his grandmother threatens to disinherit him if he does not settle down and produce a grandchild. The only candidate that remotely interests him is Tara Brid O'Connell. Her mettlesome suggestions have gotten the entire village into an uproar. Will he be the one to step forward and break the four-year, no marriage tradition?
Lisa Hendrix has done a superb job in her creation of "To Marry An Irish Rogue". I found myself being transported into the mystical fields of Ireland by her broad, descriptive language. Her delightful cast of characters will have readers begging for a sequel. She also adds just enough humor to keep her readers well-entertained.
It was my first book by Lisa Hendrix, and I won't stop here.
The book was well balance, had a great sub characters and great environment. At times it was really funny, and had some great love scenes.
The hero and the heroine had a great relationship. They meet, there is a spark, they try to resist it, but not too much. They are reasonable, and you feel like it could have really happen. No murder mystery here, just two people falling in love.
