Ireland, March 1847
In this first book of The Fire of Love series, unemployed governess Riona Connolly is willing to do anything to save her family from starvation during the Irish Potato Famine. When she meets the handsome Dr. Lucien Woulfe, who offers her job at his clinic, it seems a dream come true.
No man has ever stimulated Riona so completely, body, mind, spirit. . Yet she knows her burning attraction to the sensual Lucien is forbidden in the strict, class-conscious society of Victorian Dublin.
Lucien never imagined he would ever meet a woman who could share his life so perfectly. A dedicated doctor who’s been wounded by love in the past, he has no time for relationships. Yet one look at Riona, and he burns with a passion which soon grows all-consuming for them both.
As the Famine rages, Riona and Lucien must struggle against their flaming desire. Or do they dare risk all by giving in to their fiery passion at last?
This romance novel contains some explicit love scenes between the hero and heroine. It is for mature audiences.
