In 1823, Aveline Peyton has the choice of staying single and inheriting only a small farm in Ireland or get married and gain all her father’s wealth. She heads for Ireland only to run afoul of her father’s farm manager, Ciaran O'Devlin. Confused and angered by strange visions and her growing attraction for Ciaran, Aveline is determined to make the farm proper despite the insufferable Irishman.


I researched Ireland for years looking for something about their history that isn’t written much about. I love diving into the unknown. I found the most important part, about the tenants and landlords, was on the back burner. Every text online and in bookstores loved to talk about The Great Famine. Don’t get me wrong, it was a horrible time for my ancestors, but we know about that too much already and it’s not a great setting for a romance. So, after much reading about 19th century farming techniques, I wrote To Love An Irishman which is centered on a family farm in Ireland.
