This is one of my favorite "bodice rippers" of all time. I must have read this book atleast three times and I still get a little flutter in my chest when they end up falling in love. I love how the author added celtic folk lore and stuck to the history of Ireland so vividly. Everytime I read this book I feel like I'm right there in Ireland defending against the invading English. It's wonderful. ...more

This book was good! Certain paragraphs and pages I re-read because they were so heart warming. He loved her so much and wanted to protect her. It's hard to give this review without giving things away. But this is absolutely a book I will keep forever and read again. Highly recommend!! ...more
The Irish Princess by Amy J. Fetzer

When I first picked up this book, I was pretty excited. I had heard a lot of good things about it and, so far, I have really loved Amy J. Fetzer’s writing. And, honestly, at first I really, really enjoyed this book. It wasn’t until about 60% or so that it started to lose my interest and just slow down considerably.

This book really felt like it should have ended before it did. At a certain point in the story (view spoiler)

The book moved a little slowly at first. At close to 500 pages, I felt it could have been shorter, and some of the time the hero and heroine spent in conflict reduced. Once the hero and heroine connected and worked together to foil the plot of the traitors, the book picked up and was very very good. Loved the secondary characters and the hero and heroine.

Hi there. Thanks for stopping by!

I'll tell you right off that I don't like reading my own bios, let alone writing them. It's like tooting your own horn. But if you're here, then you want to know something about me. So how about I break some ‘writers have a glamorous life' myths first off.

Myth 1: Writers have always been writers.
Not me. I was a licensed cosmotologist for years, and didn't even put
