This book opens on a journey of self-discovery for Ali, where she manages to get lost (as per her norm) and she passes a broken down car who just happens to contain the goregous Aidan. Herein begins a journey of passion for them both and the beginning of a fling. His improptu ability at having to be able to take time off instantly is a little hard to believe but this is romance so its worth letting that one slide.

As Ali continues her tour of Ireland with Aidan as her tour guide, they begin a passionate romance. To begin with, the sex scences are very well written but I felt that there were a few too many set too close together. Of course, the fantasy can not last forever and Ali is left with her heart broken. Of course, neither knows much about the other and their paths will cross again but when?

It transpires that Ali or rather 'Alex' is a genuis with computers and they happen to come across each other again at a conference. This part of the book is very well written, with various characters playing a part in the rekindling of this romance, especially helped with the threat to her life. From her sad upbringing it was nice to read about someone so happy with their life and full of joy. The book of course has a very happy ending but getting there was a pleasure to read, although I can't help feeling she gave into Aidan a little too easily for my liking!! There was a little too much sex at the beginning for me but I was glad this peppered out and just slightly disappointed with the few typos that were in there. Overall, a good read.

Ali is an American woman spending time in Ireland. After she becomes lost she stops to help a man who has broken down and, finding themselves instantly attracted, they tour Ireland together until he goes back to his own life leaving her heartbroken. It appears, however, that they have each not been honest with the other and they find themselves together at a conference and involved in a terrorist plot.

The first thing to say is that I wanted to shout at the characters for their risky behaviour. Even if you are instantly attracted to someone and even if you are in Ireland it is not a good idea to go away with someone you have just met and don't know, they are both intelligent people and you would have thought that they would know that this is not sensible.

Anyway, if you accept that this is how they behave then their time together is interesting enough although Aiden's reasons for finishing it and his way of doing so are pretty cruel and Ali forgives a lot easier than I think that most of us might in the same situation. The second half of the book combines their romance with a terrorist plot (which is very light on details and motivation). I am not quite sure why this was added unless it was to liven up a book which was becoming a little dull and predictable - I am not quite sure that it fits with the start of the story.

A bit of a mixed book for me - unrealistic, and the different elements of the plot didn't really meld together. The ending was achingly sentimental but most of the book was well enough written (by an American so all the words used are the American ones rather than the Irish). Not challenging at all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Irish Fling 13 Feb. 2012
By book lover - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
This is a first for me, so I must have been greatly impressed with this book. I stayed with the book until I finished it at
6:00am this morning. The heroine of the story Alexandra (Ali) Dearborn was portrayed as a all american girl next door, who had a few good things going for her, which she so deserved after her childhood full of foster homes due to the loss of her mother at the age of 5 years, and never knowing who her father was. She was a genius. also coupled with something similar to a photograpic memory, graduated from MIT and hired by a the top computer software company..

She quits her job to begin a new career in Ireland, (her mothers birthplace) meets a handsome man seems to fall in love at first sight, has an steamy affair for a week when he leaves her. However, heartbroken she picks herself up and pursues her hoped for new career. She becomes unwittingly involved in a terror plot, which nearly costs her her life. Her former lover comes back to protect her.

The best part of this book that created such a compulsion for me to write this review was the triple whammy at her birthday celebration at a local pub. It starts out with tears filling your eyes, then they start streaming down your cheeks, then you just sob. It was so beautiful !!!!! The story does continue on to a great ending.

I can not remember ever being so affected by a book before.

Alli Dearborn heads to Ireland to regroup and visit her mothers homeland. Directionally challenged she gets lost and helps a stranded motorist. Hot and Dangerously looking Aidan O'Connell is in need of a vacation. Alli is just what he needs. He becomes her tour guide and Irish Fling. Neither as they appear and this will lead to surprises for both of them as they try to find out who is trying to kill Alli.

What a Fantastic story, masterfully written details so crisp and clear you can see everything even smell the Irish surroundings. This has Romance, Suspense,Mystery. All in one masterful written book.
The first in four books, I Highly Recommend this book!

5.0 out of 5 stars Nerds Rule! 12 Feb. 2012
By Silly Girl - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Good solid romance story about two techies. Love that super sweet heroine was slightly geekish. She's brainy, loves history, fiercely independent and was highly admired/attracted by the guys in her guy dominated field. This novel has a little of everything: various points of view, Irish history, suspense, romance, good supporting characters (especially Adam and Jacques who need their own stories) and ofcourse great love scenes.

4.0 out of 5 stars Love is Magick! 30 Mar. 2012
By Dawn Renae - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
As an Irish girl, longing for the Emerald Isle... I'd have to say that Valerie Douglas made me feel at home. As for love at first sight... Always been a fairy tale. This story made me believe in love and magic all over again!
I love Ali and Aiden. No two people deserve happiness more. I'm glad they found their way to each other.

I downloaded this to read on a rainy Sunday afternoon...and I was not disappointed. Engaging characters, a satisfying story line and a lot of nice little historical tidbits about Ireland thrown in for good measure. A nice romantic escape. Well done!
