Release day: What Happens in Ireland

8 May 2013

Today is the official release of What Happens in Ireland by Whitney K-E (ebook, Secret Cravings Publishing). Here’s the blurb:

What Happens in IrelandEver wondered what happens in Ireland?

When Australian, Kate Barrow, meets a handsome Irishman in a Dublin bar, she has no idea that he’s about to turn her world upside-down and inside-out.

In Ireland to take on a position on a thoroughbred stud, Kate is shocked when her manager-in-co reveals himself to be the same man she’d met in Dublin.

Jack is drawn to Kate. The problem is, she won’t have him. But Jack has always loved a challenge and the intriguing woman from Oz is one he cannot resist.

Harbouring the sting of another man’s betrayal, Kate is certain she wants nothing to do with love and nothing to do with Jack O’Reilly. But when naked torsos, Mother Nature and dysfunctional umbrellas start plotting against her resolve, she realizes the charms of an Irishman are going to be hard to resist.

Whitney dropped by today to tell us a little about this book:

What Happens in Ireland is a light and humorous romance about how trust can sometimes be a hard thing to earn. The first in a series of four, What Happens in Ireland is a love story where an Irishman fights hard to win the heart of an Aussie shrew.

You can find out more about this book on Whitney’s blog or buy it from Secret Cravings.

      Good luck, Fai! Haha, the magic of a book is that it can take you any where. And it’s much cheaper than a plane ticket 🙂

    LOVED Ireland when I was there. Also met a handsome young Irishman – this was a long time ago. Sadly, he ended up being a ratfink. So a nice Irishman who stays nice would be lovely. Congratulations on your new release, Whitney.

      I hope you don’t find Jack is a Ratfink, Victoria. Ireland is magical. Can’t wait to return myself. Thank you for commenting. 🙂
