from our rave review:I completely fell for The Irish Warrior. It's a rich, meaty, action/adventure historical with a non-jerk alpha male and a gritty, smart heroine – almost an old-school romance with nary a ripped bodice in sight.Lord Rardove, a serious bad guy in the form of an English baron in Ireland, thinks he has the ultimate weapon in the making. He possesses the legendary Wishme mollusks which make a stunning blue dye that could make a man richer than his wildest dreams, but also produce an extremely powerful explosive. Now, all he needs is a dye-witch and he knows just who.As a result of abandonment by her mother, rearing her brother, and saving their livelihood from her wastrel father, wool is Senna de Valery’s very existence. When she travels to Ireland to promote her unique blend to Rardove, it doesn’t take her too long to realize that he isn’t interested in her wool, but another alliance altogether involving forced marriage and dye-making. With a taste of his particular brand of cruelty, Senna knows no other option but escape and she thinks she’s glimpsed an imprisoned Irish warrior who would be willing to help her.Finian O’ Melaghlin, chief councilor to the O’Fail king, is on a mission to determine what exactly Rardove knows about the rumored powers of the Wishme dye. After his men are slaughtered and he’s tortured and imprisoned, Finian knows the power is no longer a secret. However, his salvation arrives in the form of a beautiful and courageous angel who rescues him from his cell with the promise he’ll help her escape from Rardove’s clutches. Together they flee into the Irish countryside to complete his mission and get her to safety.
