Amber O'Neil and Parker O'Neil are twins with a special gift; they can mindspeak.

Parker is in Ireland out on a boat, when he witnesses a murder and in turn, gets shot at. He knows the only way he can save himself is to dive overboard and swim to safety, but as he does so, he takes a shot to his side. As the dark water slides over his head, he shouts in his mind to Amber to help him.... even though she is half way across the world in California.

From My Blog...[return][return]Love, intrigue, and a mystery make The Wild Irish Sea by Loucinda McGary quite an interesting and faced-paced read.

InThe Wild Irish Sea, Amber rushes to Ireland after getting a vision of her twin brother fighting for his life. Once there, she meets Kevin Hennessy, a police inspector, who sweeps her off her feet and helps her find her brother.

Once I realized that this book was going to be more fantasy than reality, I quite enjoyed it. There's plenty of romance, suspense and paranormal activity. The steamy scenes between Amber and Kevin bring lots of heat to the story, while the storyline involving Amber's br

Amber O’Neil shares a connection with her brother. They can telepathically communicate with each other. When Amber hears Parker’s call for help, she rushes to the shores of Ireland. Amber enlists the help of Kevin Hennessy.

May 26, 2016 Rita rated it it was amazing  ·  review of another edition
Love the book. Ireland is a land of magic and mystery. I do believe that there is telepathy out there but not to the point this book goes to. Nevertheless, it is a really good read for those that love Ireland.
This book just didn't pull me in like McGary's The Wild Sight novel. Don't get me wrong, it was a very enjoyable read, however the action just did not pull me in and neither did it give me a sense of danger. The characters are very likable however, and the romance in the book is more frequent than The Wild Sight.

I recommend this to anyone who loves urban fantasy and wants a quick read with just a tad of romance. However, if you're a fan of books written by J.R Ward and Jeaniene Frost, I would j

This book had me drawn in with tons of sexual tension and action throughout. Though I think that it could have been even better if they would of brought in more elements of the seals. Calling the two leads as Prince and Princess of the selkies but not touching on that or expanding on it was kind of disappointing. Maybe should have had a 2nd book. Anyways, I read it quickly and did enjoy it. ...more

Original plot involving a heroine and her brother who share telepathic abilities, telepathy with seals, and selkie legend. Added to the mix is a just enough of suspense involving smugglers along the Irish coast to give the storyline some depth. Overall, an involving plot that moves along at a clip pace for easy and enjoyable reading. 3.8 stars.

This was a disappointing book. I finished it, but I wonder why. The story line had potential, but the author over used the fantasy to the point of being ridiculous. In many places the mind speak seemed to be a convenience to move the story. Younger readers might be satisfied, but I expect more from a book. Sorry.

Blessed with the gift of "Irish Blarney" Loucinda McGary (everyone calls her Cindy) became a storyteller shortly after she learned to read. If she didn't like the way a story ended, she made up her own ending. In high school, between history and algebra homework, Cindy wrote stories featuring herself, her friends, and their favorite movie and rock stars. After college, she published a couple dozen ...more
