Just in time for St. Patrick's Day, three short stories about gorgeous, sexy Irishmen and the women they drive crazy!

1. The Sins of His Past by Roxanne St. Clair: 4 stars - This was such a great story! Romantic, heartwarming, sensual and sexy… it had all the things I love in a short story. Seamus “Deuce” Monroe is funny, famous, successful, and all kinds of sexy. He knows how to charm women, in bed and out, but when a reckless move on his part ends his Major League Baseball career, he finds hi

The Sins of His Past (4 Hoots)
Ms. St. Claire's story focuses on a recently retired ball player, Deuce, and the one girl that used to follow him around, Kendra. Well, Kendra is all grown up and now managing Deuce's family bar as a internet café. Deuce didn't know what to be more surprised about, Kendra all grown up, his father changing up the business or rumor that his dad was getting married. The build up leads to some hilarious "one-up-manship" as Deuce and Kendra try to prove their idea for th

I loved the Irish theme with all of these romance stories. Like all collections some are stronger than others.

Roxanne St. Claire's was the weakest of the bunch for me and a big part of that was because of Deuce, I didn't like him, thought he was selfish, and was made at Kendra for her choice at the end. It seemed like all Deuce could think of was himself, when he was the big baseball player he couldn't give those at home a second thought, but when in disgrace he expected all of them to fall at h

All three heroes in the three stories were Irish and very yummy. I mean what not to love about Irish men? Dark haired, light eyed and don't get me started on the accent. Oh, the accent. Well, at least I imagined that they talked in accent.

4.5/5 Stars****

Whether you want a hot sports celebrity-once boy next door, bad boy with a Rockin bod and a dark past or the local heart throb with a bet to win this book has it all. Three sexy, drool worthy men meet their match in three equally determined women who tame their wild ways.

Recommend: You want Steamy Men and sexy wild scenes then this book is for you. Don't forget about the Happily Ever After's!

Roxanne St. Claire- It was really hard for me to like Deuce at first. He comes roaring back into town after being gone for 10 years and expects nothing to have changed and Kendra to fall into bed with him after he left her with no phone call or anything. He really had an ego problem and spent most of the story working on getting into check. I knew finding out Kendra's secret would put him in his place, just took a little longer than expected. Kendra was nice, I thought she could have spoken up f ...more

This was an anthology featuring Roxanne St. Claire, Jill Shalvis and Maureen Child. I've heard of St. Claire before but never read anything by her and have never heard of Child. I really picked this one up because I now have a love affair with all things Jill Shalvis. I am just in love with her heroes and her heroines.

I do find it hard to rate anthologies because it is technically three separate books. But I'll just break it down by story.

Anything with Jill Shalvis’s name on it is going to be an auto-buy for me, so when I saw this anthology on NetGalley, naturally I requested it. I hadn’t read anything by either of the other authors, but of course I recognized their names, so I was really excited to check out this book. I’m happy to say I was not disappointed! The three novellas have been previously published separately, so if you’re a fan of these authors, check you

A collection of three "classic" (read: published several years ago) stories that can be considered either long novellas or shorter novels, Kiss Me, I'm Irish is a decent collection. The last story, "Whatever Reilly Wants" I thought was the strongest of the three, with the first, "The Sins of His Past" a close second. I found the middle one, "Tangling with Ty" to be the weakest, but it still wasn't a bad read.

"Whatever Reilly Wants" was a bit of a slow start and slightly dated (the heroine is tr

I have been a fan of Jill Shalvis for a long time, but this was my first read by authors Roxanne St. Claire and Maureen Child and I was not disappointed.

Sometimes it’s hard for me to review and rate anthologies with different authors because some of the stories are not as good as the others, but in this case all of the stories are very well written and readable. And while they may not receive the same stared rating as a whole I am comfortable in the rating it received.

This anthology is a compilation of previous released titles by Roxanne St. Claire, Jill Shalvis and Maureen Child. I have read only one of these authors (Jill Shalvis) so I was interested in reading some of her older titles, as well as reading works of the other two authors I haven’t had the chance to read as of yet.
As you can tell with the title, this has a St. Patrick’s Day theme, which is very, very cute!

Wow.... 3 hot men for the price of 1... you just can't beat it!!!

Sins from his Past was a sweet and some what complicated story. I really did fall for Deuce but at the same time he seemed clueless even after everything was laid out for him. Kendra was adorable, still in love with the man of her dreams but trying her damnedest to keep her heart under lock and key! A definite 4.5 star read!

This is a compilation of 3 different stories. Tangling with Ty, Whatever Reilly Wants... (Three-Way Wager, Book 2), The Sins Of His Past. My rating is a product of the 3 stories. I individually rated them, as well.
Holly
All three stories in this collection are reprints. I have to say, I didn't love them. Each story had its good moments, but mostly I found myself frustrated with the story or annoyed at the characters.

A nice 4 out of5 stars. All enjoyable stories, my favorite was Tangling with Ty.

Dr. Nicole Mann lives for her job, it’s what defines her. When she isn’t working at the hospital, she’s sleeping - just to be woken up by her beeper a measly couple of hours later. The same routine day in day out; there’s no time for socializing. She’s not any good at it anyway.

This anthology is a collection of books written by long time favorite authors Roxanne St. Claire, Jill Shavis, and Maureen Child. They were originally published in 2003, 2005, and 2006. I found it very interesting to read these books by authors I still enjoy and see not only how their writing has changed but also how the world has changed. These were fun, flirty, and fast reads and I enjoyed each of them very much.Overall, I give this

This was a good collection of three short stories by three amazing authors. While I liked each story and thought they were good I didn't really love any of them. I was glad I read them because they were definitely a light fun read, but I don't think I would re-read any of them.

The minute I saw Jill Shalvis’ name on the cover, I didn’t even bother to read the blurb. I knew she wouldn’t lead me astray, and the chance to read two other authors I didn’t know much about… It’s a win all around!

These stories are all re-releases from Harlequin category lines and I hadn't read them before - however they've been released through the HQN imprint which I know as single title. I think Harlequin do themselves a disservice with actions like that.

I don’t know about you, but when I check out an author's bio, it’s usually because I’ve read a book I liked and wondered about the person behind it. Let's skip the formal bio and I'll give you the inside scoop on who Roxanne St. Claire really is.
