Magic, shifters, and a pot of gold at the end of the rainbow.

Inheriting a cottage in Ireland seems like a stroke of pure luck to Grace Connolly — as is a chance meeting with her mysterious (and hot) new neighbor. Soon, Boston’s most up-and-coming harpist finds herself mixing business with pleasure and getting to know Finn Hurley — intimately.

But all is not as it seems with the alluring man from next door, nor in the seaside village of Ballyfianna. Magic, shapeshifters, and legendary pots of gold? The surprises don’t end there — not when Grace’s family secrets come to light. Before she knows it, her mini-adventure — and sizzling romance — become a fight between good and evil. Ruthless enemies are muscling in on Finn’s home turf, and Grace will need more than the luck of the Irish to survive. Does she dare unleash the hidden power within her — a force she’s been warned never to use?

After a decade of military service, dragon shifter Finn Hurley is finally free to track down the elusive beauty he’s secretly loved for years. When he discovers her in his hometown, it seems like destiny is smiling on him. He should have known nothing in life comes easy — especially love.

Because Ballyfianna is no longer the peaceful, sleepy place it once was, and Grace has unwittingly become involved in its troubles. Bitter enemies from beyond its borders are plotting to seize power, while traitors are conspiring within. But they are all mere puppets to an even more treacherous enemy lurking in the background. Can this battle-weary warrior defeat evil and finally find his happy ending?

Grace Connolly has always felt that Ireland called to her ever since she was eight years old and met Finn Hurley and in a very short time they formed a friendship that both thought about throughout the years. Now Grace has inherited a cottage in the very same little village of Ballyfianna that she met Finn, left to her by her great-great-great uncle. She knew her time at Ballyfianna was going to be short and she would be returning home to Boston, but she couldn’t help thinking of what it would be like if she met Finn again as an adult.

Visiting the castle where she and Finn first met and looking over the very cliff that Finn saved her from so many years ago she is approached by a very angry man claiming she is trespassing which nearly causes her to fall over the same cliff, but once again Finn appears to save her. So many years have gone by and yet Grace and Finn still seem to have the same connection they had as kids only she is about to learn things she could never have imagined, and she is about to find herself in the middle of shifter trouble, something she is about to learn the hard way.

If you are reading this series, then you already know about Finn since he first appeared in book four. He left Portugal determined to return after he visited with his family, but Grace put a new perspective on what he sees for his future, she is his mate and having a future without her in it is inconceivable. The Lombardis are joining forces with a wolf pack and a witch and Finn calls upon one of his brothers from the French Legion, Lachlan for help, because like it or not Grace is going to be right in the middle of the danger.

Grace gets a crash course in shifters, her family and what being with Finn, a dragon shifter could be like. She also has to accept the fact that she may be more than just a known harp player but she also has to decide where her life will be and with whom.

If you haven’t started this series I highly recommend doing so, although the books do not have to be read in order you would be missing out on some wonderful books. Each book gives you a look at who the next story will be about and a little background on them. I can’t wait for book six.
