Review ~ A Band of Roses

"Irish kings still rule the Emerald Isle—
and a princess is in trouble!"

In a modern world where High King Brian Boru's descendants still reign, Crown Princess Talty Boru becomes a pawn in a high-stakes gamble for offshore oil. Exiled from Ireland, Talty hides her true identity to escape would-be assassins. Her travels range from Japan to an eleventh century Ireland, and though she unearths a miracle worth more than any oil well, she only wants to return to her family and Neil Boru, the adoptive cousin she secretly loves and cannot have—or so she thinks. Neil has a secret of his own, one that emerges as the Boru clan works with England's MI6 to thwart an invasion of Ireland and bring Talty home.

My grandparents are from Ireland, so I was excited to read Pat McDermott's alternative reality of Ireland. This book is very long, but you never even realize it. I was quickly wrapped up in this fascinating tale. A band of roses had adventure, love, twists & turns. Everything you could ask for!
