Contemporary Romance, Romantic Comedy
It's 1959 and Claire Nugent is in Australia to attend her sister's wedding and have a holiday before making a decision to either marry an older gentleman or become a nun. Instead she finds herself constantly bedeviled by Daniel Hunter, a powerfully built fireman, who is not only a rogue, but a Protestant, who a good Catholic girl would never marry.
Daniel is captivated by Claire's beauty, quick wit and enchanting Irish accent. He's never enjoyed pursuing a woman to this extent, yet she refuses to acknowledge him as anything other than a pest. When Daniel hears Claire needs rescuing from a locked bathroom and is wearing nothing but a towel, he decides to take advantage of this golden opportunity and step up his seduction. She has captured his heart, now he will do whatever it takes to capture hers.

AN IRISH ROSE takes place in 1959 when 28-year-old virgin Claire Nugent decides to travel to Australia to be in her sister's wedding. She is supposed to marry a 40-year-old man or become a nun, but she has dreams no one knows about. Her dreams of falling in love are never to be if she stays in Ireland. Claire decides her only hope is this trip.
She finds one man that drives her insane and won't leave her alone. He is at every dance she attends and acts so possessive.
Daniel Hunter decides on his beautiful Irish rose but there is only one problem--she hates him. He has tried everything he knows to claim her heart but she refuses him.
Will Daniel suffer in vain? Will Claire become a nun or return to her home and marry an old man? Or will she fall in love in Australia?
What a lovely romantic story with the Irish accents in the dialogue and the Australian or Aussie coming out in Daniel's slant. The descriptive elements are resourceful. I must say, it was totally delightful.
I wanted more from this author. The story was just a little too short, but a great romantic fantasy. The dialogue was expressive and interesting. The characters stayed in their personalities and were very strong in so short a tale. I do look forward to more of this author's work.
I give her five stars for a wonderful romantic tale.
