Artist Representative, Eilis Kennedy, gave up a singing career so that other women could have a fair chance at having their music heard. Having suffered rejection from callous men in the industry, she thought she would get away from ‘casting couch’ mentality. But when she finds herself in the office of Fergus Manley, all bets are off. Disgusted by his continual come-ons an ...more

Kick back with an ale or Bailey's and enjoy this musically and magically Irish love tale with a Fairy Godson in training!

She has work hard for everything she has,

First of all, take a look at the cover of this book. I don’t know what the Irish word for “WOW” is but that was my reaction when I saw it. If a guilty pleasure read is what you are looking for, then you don’t need to look much further once you see the eye candy on this cover. Women will want a Kieran Vaughan of their own. What’s not to love, ladies? He’s hot, hot, hot, he sings and plays blues guitar, he loves his little sister, he’s nice, he worships the ground Eilis walks on (lucky wench), he ...more

Being that I am mildly obsessed with Ireland, love pubs, and cherish live music there was no way this novel wouldn’t resonate with me. That being said, you never knows exactly what kind of world you’re about to enter when cracking open the spine of a new novel (and never having read anything from the author before either.)

Let me tell you, my intuition and good feelings upon reading the back cover copy did not let me down. Rhythm of My Heart is an endearing romantic tale infused with the Irish cu

Kieran Vaughan's tolerance has struck bottom. His dreams of playing the "blues" before a larger, more appreciative audience has been reduced to playing in seedy pubs where the customers are so drunk they haven't a clue to what they're hearing. Add to that he's been cheated out the money he has rightly earned by his thief of a boss, but continuing to play in the filthy dump where he works is better than being, as his boss puts it, on "the Dole." (Irish name for welfare) He wonders if he'd be bett ...more

I apparently need a steady diet of Ms. Shortland’s books. In between reading them, I tend to forget the depth of character and insight into their personalities. I especially forget how devious and evil her villains can be. This makes their presence even more subversive and menacing. The truly ingenious aspect of her villains are the way they could be someone we, the reader, know and have experience with in our own lives. I especially

I received this book from the author for an honest review.

This is the second book I have read from the author, and I must admit that I really enjoyed this book more.
This time the hero in the story, Kieran Vaughan was a true romantic; wrapped in leather he was a true bad boy with a Harley to boot. With a true talent that rocked Eilis Kennedy's world.
The author's erotic descriptions of his voice, the way he held and played the guitar; his connection with Eilis; made this character alive on the p

Rhythm of My Heart by Kemberlee Shortland I am third generation Irish and love anything related to this beautiful country and its culture. That being said, I love Ms. Shortland's stories, this is the second in the Irish Pride series that I have read, didn't matter that I read them out of order either as they each feature different characters. 
 
Rhythm of My Heart features Eilis Kennedy, a musician promoter and Kieran Vaughn a musician. Eilis discovers Kieran and the attraction is instantaneous, s

Intense and Romantic.

Steeped in Irish culture, Rhythm of my Heart is the story of two people drawn to one another by an ethereal pull.

Eilis Kennedy hasn't had a great history with men and has focused instead on her career which involves discovering new musical talent in Dublin, Ireland. I connected with Ellis right away and felt invested in her journey. She's a real woman with real insecurities about her weight and her looks, pouring all her energy into her career.

Her search efforts bring her to

I love Ireland, and one of the best parts about Rhythm of My Heart is the way the author incorporates Ireland into the story—from the descriptions of the city to the Tunnocks Teacakes (and, after the description of them, I have to find a stateside source!)

This story is classic romance—boy meets girl; they feel a connection (literally, in this case); because of a misunderstanding on both sides they spend time apart; and I'm not giving away any spoilers (after all, like I said, it IS a romance) wh

I recommend this book if you're looking for characters with strong personalities that experience personal growth, exotic storytelling and steamy male characteer.
