REVIEW: Smiling Irish by Katy Regnery

I absolutely loved this story. With a little bit of suspense and a romance that kind of comes out of nowhere Smiling Irish was sweet with just the right amount of angst. Throw in some danger and I'm hooked. Once I picked this up I didn't put it down until it was done. Tierney is every bit the sweet, one would say a bit of a nerd, but she does have a bit of bite to her that I loved. Burr is the complete opposite in every way imaginable, he screams danger. The beginning of this story starts off with some intensity when Burr basically bulldozes his way into her life. As the story unfolds you can start to feel the chemistry between them but there are definitely some obstacles in the way here and that makes for a suspenseful read. My heart literally pounding full of angst at certain moments in this book. Absolutely a fan of this series. And OMG I can't wait for Ian's book.

Tierney Haven and Burr O’Leary come from completely different worlds… …but there’s a reason they say “opposites attract.” Bookish Tierney Haven has always preferred places to people, and she especially loves the peace and quiet of Moonstone Manor, an estate museum located in the White Mountains of New Hampshire, where she is head docent, chief historian and live-in caretaker. The very last thing she expects to find on her doorstep in the middle of the night is bruised and bloodied stranger, Burr O’Leary, in desperate need of her help. Against her better judgement and at the risk of her brothers’ wrath, Tierney offers Burr sanctuary at Moonstone Manor, and nurses him back to health, surprised to discover that the dashing, enigmatic stranger loves the history and peace of Moonstone as much as she. But Burr has a dark history, and those who hurt him will stop at nothing to eliminate him...placing Tierney in grave danger until he is well enough to find them first.
