I like fast cars, beautiful women and great sex.
I hate drugs. I can’t stand the idiots who take them and I loathe the bastards who supply them. Drugs cost me my whole world.
I wear many faces; right now I’m Doctor Lucas Callaghan and I’ll be him until I get my revenge.
My real name will be the last words to ever pass their lips.
I hate my name, Aoife Brennan, as soon as people hear it they treat me differently because of my father.
Medical school isn’t my dream, it’s his. But, it’s the least I owe him after everything I’ve done. I’m trying to be a good girl, but even good girls make mistakes.
He’s lying about who he is, she’s kidding herself about who she can be. They’re polar opposites with one very big secret in common.

Author Guest Post
All my books are set in Dublin, Ireland. It’s not a conscious decision I ever made. It just worked out that way. S’pose the old cliché ‘write what you know’ is true. And I know Ireland.
But really it’s just a setting. Sights, sounds, smells. That sort of thing. There’s no geography lesson in there. I’m not too good with over description. I find it hard to read, and I definitely don’t like to write it. I want my books and characters to have roots but I think it’s important not to alienate readers who have never been to Ireland with weird place names or clunky descriptions of locations.
Ireland is a pretty place. Lots of green fields, old castles, and fabulous woodlands and parks. It’s a great place to set a romance novel. Horseback riding in the country, a picnic by the lake, an afternoon strolling on the beach beneath a summer’s mist – the possibilities are endless. And it’s easy to give your characters a believable social life when you set the book in a city bustling with heritage, music and craic (the Irish for fun, not the drug *wink*)
My hero’s are always Irish. Their appearance…think Jamie Dornan or Colin Farrell. Their accent – well, obviously. Their sense of humour – that’s definitely my favourite part about my Irish characters; the dry, sarcastic wit the Irish are famous for. I don’t think I could find a better fit for an alpha male, even if I tried.
I allow my heroines a little more freedom with their nationality. Maybe she’s just moved to the country and is trying to figure herself out. Or maybe she’s always lived here and can’t wait to get away. Either way, I suppose, without realising it Ireland leaves its mark on my girls too.
And, hopefully but the end of the book – if I’ve done my job right, Ireland and the characters should leave their mark on my readers too. Fingers crossed.

The Harte Series went on to become a #1 international bestseller.
