The Mammoth Book of Irish Romance - book cover

The Mammoth Book of Irish Romance / by Trisha Telep.

An enthralling collection of romantic tales set amidst beautiful Ireland's lush ancient landscapes: pre-Christian ruins, green hills, rugged cliffs, and pounding Atlantic surf. These stories-by writers, such as Roberta Gellis, Bertice Small, Jennifer Ashley, Claire Delacroix, and Mary Jo Putney, honor Ireland's rich heritage as a land of poets, magic, and mystery. Just in time for St. Patrick's Day. ~ publisher
