But one moment in his company and she’s in danger of losing her heart. There are secrets aplenty at Brentfield, enough to challenge any lady’s sensibilities, even those of Hannah’s protégé, Lady Emily Southwell. As events unfold at Brentfield, Hannah quickly learns that loving David comes at a price, to her future plans of being a portrait painter, to her position as a teacher, and to her very life. This clean romance with a touch of romantic suspense was previously published by Zebra as A Dangerous Dalliance. Five Stars!” I enjoyed this enchanting romantic suspense tale which was full of twists and turns throughout. I found this novel hard to put down and was up into the wee hours of the morning reading.” – Affaire de Coeur “I loved this book. The Colonial Upstart of an earl paired with a lovely art teacher is a brilliant stroke and the writing matches her plot . . . .

Shadow of a Century – Jean Grainger

Shadow of a Century Jean Grainger Genre: Historical Publish Date: November 30, 2016 Publisher: Jean Grainger Seller: Draft2Digital, LLC During a time of great upheaval and unrest in Ireland, as men and women run to take up arms against the tyranny and occupation of the British Empire, the lives of three women are forever altered, and thereby inextricably linked over the span of a century. Mary Doyle arrives in Dublin in 1913, doomed, she fears, to a life of domestic service. Instead, however, she finds herself deeply affected by the social and political turmoil of a fledgling nation struggling for independence. Suddenly, all that was once inevitable is no longer a certainty as she is embroiled in the very heart of the Easter Rising.  Scarlett O’Hara has had many hurdles to cross in her life, not least her name. A successful political correspondent, she finds herself at a crossroads when one error of judgement jeopardises everything she has worked so hard to overcome and achieve. In the process of rebuilding her life, Scarlett faces the difficult and ultimate choice of starting all over again. At ninety-three years old, Eileen Chiarello thought her time for adventure and wonder was over, before a chance meeting with Scarlett draws her back to Ireland, the land her parents fought for and loved so passionately. Now, at the end of her life, Eileen has the opportunity to fulfil a promise she never thought she could. Historically sweeping and beautifully written, Shadow of a Century draws a circle around the Irish Rebellion and carefully traces the magnitude of its significance against the backdrop of three women’s lives across history.

The Irish Cottage: Finding Elizabeth – Juliet Gauvin

The Irish Cottage: Finding Elizabeth Juliet Gauvin Genre: Literary Publish Date: October 17, 2015 Publisher: Juliet Gauvin Seller: Juliet Gauvin A story about losing your way and finding your life. Book 1 of 3. Elizabeth Lara built a perfect life as San Francisco’s top divorce attorney, but when she loses her great-aunt Mags, the woman who raised her, she boards a plane and leaves it all behind. The Irish shores welcome her as she learns a shocking truth, kept secret for thirty-five years. Devastated and now alone in the world, Beth tries to find peace in a beautiful cottage by Lough Rhiannon, but peace isn’t what fate had in mind. Almost as soon as she arrives, Beth’s solitary retreat into the magic wilds of Ireland is interrupted by Connor Bannon. A man with light brown hair, ice blue eyes and a secret of his own. He’s gorgeous, grieving, and completely unexpected. With the help of Mags’ letters, the colorful townspeople of Dingle, and Connor, Elizabeth might just find a way back to the girl she lost long ago and become the woman she always wanted to be. A Note From Jules: Be forewarned you might not want to start this book late at night—several readers have reported “gobbling it up” and going on to the next book immediately. This book is literary women’s fiction, it is not a traditional romance, per se. It’s a trilogy, not a standalone. All three books are vital to the story: The Irish Cottage, The London Flat, and The Paris Apartment. That being said, I’ve found that traditional romance readers are VERY happy at the end of London. So take a ride with me, first to Ireland and then the world. “If you enjoy Nora Roberts, you’ll like Juliet Gauvin. The Irish Cottage is a fresh take on women’s literary fiction, sometimes light and scrumptious and other times quite profound in its observations on life, love and loss.” “A book that conveys the true feelings of Ireland when you visit…it’s a bit of a romance, history, travel, and mystery neatly tied into a book well worth reading.” “It will give you the feels—only the good ones!” The Irish Cottage: Finding Elizabeth is an international women’s literary fiction romance novel with three books in the novel series. Other themes include: romance literary fiction, women’s sagas, love stories, and second chances at life. EDITORIAL REVIEWS “It was like a drug that I couldn’t get enough of. The Irish Cottage started it all and now that I have finished all three, I’m starting all over.” -Amazon Reviewer "I started this book and couldn't put it down. It brought me to Ireland and I never wanted to leave." -Amazon Reviewer "There is so much to love in this, the first in the [The Irish Heart] Series…I wanted to look out my cottage window and see a Lough of my own and the pub was just asking me to come visit…This story pulled me in from the very first page and I'd highly recommend it to anyone who enjoys contemporary romance, stories of starting over, or romances set in other countries." -Goodreads "Picked this up because it was set in Ireland, and it took me right back there. Wonderful writer, if you love Ireland and a good read I would recommend this book. I will most definitely be reading the rest of the series." -Amazon Reviewer “I laughed, I cried, I hoped & dreamed. The series was beautifully told through poignant letters. A keeper of the heart.” -Amazon Reviewer "Excellent book, one that was very hard to put down. Well-written, exciting, great author! I highly recommend this book to all…Get it then get comfortable because you will be in for a good long read, enjoy!" -Goodreads "Great book! Elizabeth embodies strength and determination as well as compassion and forgiveness. The Irish Cottage combines the fairytale of Ireland with the real life struggles we all face." -Amazon Reviewer "I bought the book yesterday and couldn't put it down. Very romantic, very sexy, with a heroine who can save her own bacon…and the wounded, hunky hero–be still my heart." -Goodreads INTERVIEW WITH THE AUTHOR Q: How did you come up with The Irish Cottage? Jules : Well the story came together in pieces. I love Ireland, I've always been attracted to the country, the people, the music, the dancing. I've spent time traveling the country so I knew I wanted to set the book there. And then the character of Elizabeth was based on a lot of the experiences I had when I was in law in San Francisco. When I was immersed in that world–it was a very dark time, and I really did lose my way–like Elizabeth. I even let long-time relationships die because I was in such a dark place, it was difficult to see anything past my own nose. So yeah, I knew I wanted my heroine to be a "recovering attorney" and I knew that I wanted her to have this great love affair in Ireland that would open her up to the truly great possibilities life has to offer. Q: And what about Connor Bannon? Is he based on anyone? Jules : Ummm…he might be an amalgamation of several people, but I think I'll refrain from commenting further–have to keep some of it to myself, don't I? Q: Why did you elect to write literary women's fiction as opposed to traditional contemporary romance? Jules : I knew I wanted to write in the literary women's fiction space because writing a story where the heroine's evolution is paramount–not just her relationship with Connor–is what really gets me, drives me–I love those types of stories. I like writing her story–women's lives and journeys are so complex–I wanted to write a series that included a great love story, but didn't sacrifice the heroine's journey in any way. It's about Elizabeth finding her way–we all need to find our way. Sometimes people help with that, but ultimately each of us has to find our own path…and we all need love too.   Q: Why London and then Paris? Jules : I lived in London for a time–I love it so much. It's one of the best cities on the planet, really. When I closed my eyes and thought about where Elizabeth's journey would take her I knew London would be next. And Paris–I lived in Lyon for a time as well and I've spent a lot of time in Paris so it seemed only natural for the final book to be set there. I also set certain things in motion in The Irish Cottage that make it impossible to end anywhere else–I knew I wanted to end it in France. Plus, Elizabeth has a major sweet tooth, like me, and Paris has the most amazing dessert masters in the world. I spent many hours pouring over the websites of my favorites and discovering some new ones. Those were the hardest and best research nights–I'm nocturnal, I write at night–and pouring over the websites of my favorite masters was heaven and hell. I wanted to get on a plane already. My sugar intake definitely went up while I was writing The Paris Apartment–and my waistline with it.   […]

Meatless Monday: St. Patrick’s Day Dubln-Style — Dedicated, Passionate Vegan Community – 1, Corned Beef and Cabbage – 0

Who cares about green beer? Last month, I was blissed to find soy milk and almond milk in every coffee shop in Dublin. Every eatery had a vegan option or could craft one without fuss and didn’t look at me like I was crazy. I even talked aquafaba meringues with a waiter–big news in a country where dairy and meat have traditionally been a big part of the plate and a big part of the Gross National Product. I presented at Happy Food Cafe, Dublin’s first and only all-vegan cafe, where the beetburger- chowing crowd hungered not just for vegan eats but to create vegan consciousness and vegan community. Passionate about animal welfare, they seemed slightly embarrassed all of Ireland hasn’t embraced it, too. Maybe it’s not happening as fast as Dublin’s vegan crowd would like — honey, I’m familiar with the feeling –but the move to vegan has been happening in big ways and small. Dublin had its first-ever vegfest in November and Dublin VegFest 2016 is in the works now, spearheaded by the mighty Pears Hussey and “a small dedicated group of people passionate about vegan living.” That’s all it takes to bring about change. In 1898, a dedicated and passionate Irishman, playwright (and vegetarian) George Bernard Shaw wrote, “Why should you call me to account for eating decently? If I battened on the scorched corpses of animals, you might well ask me why I did that.” About 90 years later, Morrissey, Smiths frontman, Irish vegan and PETA activist extraordinaire came out with “Meat is Murder.” Pioneering Blazing Salads, Dublin’s family-owned whole food vegetarian restaurant opened 30 years before Happy Food Cafe. It’s morphed from its earnest ’80s beginnings to do a mean, modern and largely plant-based takeaway business. Beetburgers, plant-based milks and chickpea blondies may be all but mainstream, but they weren’t always. For many years, Ireland’s mainstay crop — and the mainstay meal — was potatoes. And then, when the crop failed, it wasn’t. During the Great Famine , 1.5 million Irish died of starvation. You tend not to forget a thing like that, no matter how long ago it happened. Food is precious, valued in Ireland in a way that it isn’t in America. I learned about farm to table in Ireland years before it was big here. I learned about it at the farm. At the table. It’s so intrinsic to how they’ve lived, they didn’t even have a term for it. Coming from America and our monster centralized food system, I couldn’t believe a simple roasted newly-dug potato could taste so minerally and rich and fall apart in my mouth like a puff of cloud. I could feel the potassium shoot through my veins like a junkie getting a hit. Forget corned beef and cabbage (not vegan, not Irish) Celebrate St. Patrick’s Day with a potato. Planting potatoes on St. Patrick’s Day is an Irish life-affirming tradition. Potatoes also star in my vegan version of Ithat age-old Irish comfort food, bubble and squeak. A simple hash of cabbage, kale or other seasonal vegetables held together by potatoes, it’s not only greater than the sum of its parts, it’s sustainable and farm-to-table as it gets. Nice with a pint of vegan Guinness. St. Patrick’s Day, raise your glass to Happy Foods Cafe, to Dublin VegFest and Ireland’s small but dedicated, passionate — and growing — vegan-conscious community. Slainte. St. Patrick’s Day Bubble and Squeak (The Eating of the Green) The nutty name comes from the sound of potatoes bubbling on the boil and then squeaking in the hot skillet. My potatoes don’t always squeak, but my husband loves this dish. I love it because it’s quick, easy and a brilliant use of greens. You can make it even more nutrient-dense by swapping sweet potatoes for baking potatoes, you can ramp up the flavors by adding a tablespoon of nutritional yeast or teaspoon of smoked paprika or curry powder, but you owe it to yourself — and the Irish — to try the simple farm-fresh original. 1 pound baking potatoes (about 2), halved and chopped into bite-sized pieces 4 tablespoons vegan butter (such as Miyoko’s or Earth Balance) 1 onion, thinly sliced 1 bunch kale, 1/2 cabbage, thinly sliced into ribbons or a dozen or so Brussels sprouts, halved a handful fresh thyme leaves, optional sea salt and fresh ground pepper Add chopped potatoes to a large pot. Cover with about an inch of water. Bring to a boil, then let them bubble away, uncovered, until the potatoes are tender and yield when poked with a fork or knife, about 15 minutes. Drain in a colander. (Potatoes may be cooked up to a day ahead, then cooled, tightly covered and refrigerated. Remove from fridge and bring them back to room temperature for about an hour before proceeding.) In a 10-inch skillet, melt vegan butter over medium-high heat. Add sliced onion and cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions soften and turn golden. Add chopped kale or cabbage or Brussels sprouts, and give a quick sauté, stirring frequently, until the greens are tender but still bright, about 5 minutes. Mix in potatoes, mashing and stirring them into the onions and greens. Go for lumpy and hashlike, not fluffy and uniformly mashed. Sprinkle in thyme leaves, if using, and season everything generously with sea salt and pepper. Use a wooden spoon or spatula to press everything down to form a cake. Cook, without stirring, until potatoes squeak and underside is crusty and golden, about 10 minutes. Serve at once. Or if you’re feeling adventurous, place a large plate over the top of the skillet and carefully turn out the potato cake, so the crusty side is on top. If it comes out in pieces, no worries, just press everything back into place. Then slide it back into the skillet and cook for another 5 minutes or so. Eat. Enjoy. Serves 4.
