About this ebook

The saloonkeeper and the Irish rose…

When Jack O’Brien is forced to flee Ireland at the age of eighteen, he leaves behind both his beloved homeland and the only woman he will ever love. He never expects to lay eyes on Clare Rafferty again…until the day he walks into his very own saloon and finds her singing on his stage. 

With her ebony hair and ruby red lips, Clare still has the face and voice of an angel. Although furious at Jack for abandoning her, she can’t help but notice that the boy she once adored has become a dangerously attractive man. 

What Clare doesn’t know is that Jack is not only a successful saloonkeeper, but an accomplished Pinkerton agent. As irresistible passion flares between them, they must face the greatest threat of their lives—one that will force them to choose between clinging to the past…or embracing a future in each other’s arms…
