INSPIRATIONS FOR LUCK OF THE IRISH
When I visited Dublin for the first time in July 2011, I was fascinated by the people and by its quiet, ancient beauty. The following pictures and videos are partly responsible for inspiring me to write Luck of the Irish.
Also, as I wrote the book, I would often look at these to remind me of the great time I had at the Emerald Isle.

EDITORIAL REVIEW OF LUCK OF THE IRISH BY HARMONY KENT – harmonykent.co.uk
Keira Ashe, at twenty-two, is fulfilling a life-long dream of travelling to Ireland to watch U2 in concert. All her life, her grandfather told her stories of the emerald isle, and now she is seeing it for herself. Keira wanted to make a holiday of it, and booked two weeks in Ireland with the plan to watch the concert and do some sightseeing. One night, while drunk, Keira meets Declan, who takes care of her in her vulnerable state. The pair are attracted to one another immediately and the sparks fly, but with only two weeks in Ireland, can it go anywhere? When Keira sets off on her travels alone, danger looms. Author Liz Gavin gives the reader so much more than hot and steamy romance; she gives tension and suspense and a rip-roaring tale that will keep you on the edge of your seat . This new, revised edition has been edited and proofread to a high standard, and brings you an even greater read.
This is an author who knows how to pack a punch, as well as how to caress you softly with her words.
The plot, pacing, character development, and world building are all done very well, and you will feel as though you are in Ireland yourself as you immerse yourself in this excellent erotic romance novel.
Well worth a read.
Some Readers’ Reviews on Amazon U. S.
Declan and Keira were just what I needed! This is a really good read and I loved these characters together. The author did an excellent job of drawing me into this story, it had excellent build-up without being too drawn out. There’s a touch of sweetness, hot and steaminess and love in this book. There were some editing issues, but that didn’t take away from the story for me.
I loved the setting in this book, there is something about an Irish setting that makes a book a little more exciting for me. This is a complete book with a very good ending. A finished it pretty quickly and I really did enjoy it!
I downloaded this through Kindle Unlimited!
5.0 out of 5 stars A delightful Read, June 5, 2015
My 4-hour flight delay became a delight because of the Luck of the Irish. Within the first few pages, I was transported to the Emerald Isle and brought into the dreams of the young traveler Keira. She finds love, discovers passion, and encounters terror (which is resolved in a wonderful way).
The book is fast-paced, with ample twists and turns to hold the attention of the reader. It was a perfect read for me while I was traveling!
