Samantha Lane is one of the world’s highest paid actresses, but underneath all the fame and fortune, she’s living a lie. Her love life is non-existent. Her bio is completely made up and to top it all off, she’s reached the ultimate in celebrity status. She’s got herself a stalker. Now filming a career changing movie in Ireland, she’s fighting to take back control of her life before the world finds out just what a fake she really is. Brennan O’Brien has returned to his Irish roots to raise a daughter he never knew existed and to dig the family’s pub out from the brink of bankruptcy. He has no time for spoiled actresses, lunatic stalkers or meddling friends and family, and has vowed to never give his heart to another woman. Unfortunately, he now lives in the land of magic, folklore, and hopeless romantics and will have to decide if he can resist the pull of Samantha Lane or give in to her maddening allure. Follow Sam and Brennan’s twisted path to true love, where these jaded souls test the limits of fate to find a way to come together and overcome their pasts to discover the truth about who they really are and what they really need.
*NOTE* While Worlds Apart can be read as a standalone, it is book #3 in The Sisters series.
This is one of those books that puts the Happily in the Happily Ever After.
It takes a leap of faith to fall in love. Brennan captures this so well, “She was going to break my heart, I knew it the minute I met her, but it didn’t seem to matter to me.” The heart wants what the heart wants.
I find names to be incredibly important to a story. I love when Brennan insists on referring to Sam as Samantha. “Everyone else gets Sam, but I get Samantha. I get the woman behind the brand. I get you, all of you, and that’s only mine to have.”
The primary setting of the story takes place in a small pub in Ireland is incredibly romantic. The way it is described conjures up images of warm homeyness. Admittedly, it also brought back a lot of great memories of college as I used to frequent a bar, also known as Murphy’s Pub, at the University of Illinois.
