New Release -- IRISH INHERITANCE and IRISH INTRIGUE by Paula Martin

 Mist Na Mara Series Book 1

The last thing English actress Jenna Sutton expected is to inherit money—and half of a house in Ireland! When she discovers the handsome American artist she’s met at the airport is the recipient of the other half of the house, Jenna wonders what kind of trick Fate is playing—for she certainly doesn’t need a man complicating her life now that she’s on the verge of stardom!

Guy Sinclair has fallen on hard times and just sworn off actresses after being burned by his “ex”, Suzie. Selling the house he’s inherited—or his half of it—could be the new start he’s needed to get back to painting what really matters—art, not signage. But it doesn’t take more than five minutes in the presence of Miss Jenna Sutton to make Guy realize that there’s much more than a house at stake here—his heart could be forfeit, as well.

Curious about their unknown benefactress and why they are considered ‘family’, they discover surprising links to the original owners of the house.

As they begin to unravel an intriguing tale of a 19th century love affair, they have no choice but to give in to their own attraction for one another. 

Unavoidable events pull Jenna and Guy back to their separate lives in London and the United States, and tension builds over their impending decision about the house—to sell or not to sell? And once that decision is final, what will become of them?

Will their IRISH INHERITANCE bring them together—or drive them apart forever?


 Mist Na Mara Series Book 2

Ireland holds sad memories for English actress Charley Hunter, who is forced to return there to complete the filming of a TV drama series. Since she lost her husband two years earlier, the very last thing she expects is the jolt of attraction that draws her to a handsome Irish veterinary surgeon! 

Luke Sullivan has sworn off women with the break-up of his marriage, but how can he resist Charley? The timing is all wrong, with a series of unexplained crises at his animal clinic—and having to prepare himself for an ugly custody battle for his two children.

Just when Charley and Luke trust that there may be a chance for their love to grow, a freak series of events has Luke believing Charley has endangered his children’s lives—and his chance at gaining permanent custody of them. Can Charley explain what happened and regain the trust she lost in that fateful moment?

Will IRISH INTRIGUE allow them a second chance at love?
