Wild Irish Soul is the second book in the Mystic Cove series by Tricia O'Malley. This series transports the reader into a mystical world on the rocky shores in Ireland, where women have magical gifts passed down from their ancestral female descendants. In each book, the heroine must face revealing her gift to the man she has fallen in love with, hoping that he can accept this oddity.

Overall this was an enjoyable light read, but one that didn't tightly grip my attention.

I did like the characters, although there were occassions where Patrick really annoyed me. Plus I felt as I read, and then finished that the story could have had a lot more depth and the characters developed far more. It felt like the characters and story could have gone a lot further than either did.

This is the first book I've read in the series (and it's book 4) but luckily it can be read standalone-ish. Wi

An orphaned descendent of Grace O'Malley shows up in town and she is stronger than all the women combined with a bit of each of their gifts along with the ability of telekinesis on top of it all, but she has been badly abused and is extremely distrustful of anyone and everyone. Can the hot bartender in town break through her walls or will she cut and'll have to read and see, but be prepared for laughter, tears and so much more! I can't wait to download the next book in the series to l ...more

Morgan has had a very difficult life, it’s beautiful to watch her pulled out of her shell by her “family” of Grace sisters. Patrick is pretty open to the gifts that the women have after having worked for Cait and growing up in the Cove. Still he is put to the test and even he has some growing up and learning to do. 

Again I cried and cried again, I was pulled into the story and could feel the pain and isolation that Morgan had grown up with and how difficult it was for her to accept the help an ...more

I am now flying through this series! Thank you Audible!! LOL

Now, this one follows Morgan. We got a glimpse of her in the last couple of books. She has arrived to town and it seems she has powers too so that means she is somehow related to the previous characters. Poor Morgan was abandoned when she was a babe so she has no idea who she is or where she comes from. Poor girl was an orphan in a Catholic orphanage and they treated her horribly because she has powers. She is a jack of all magic trades

Such a floofy bit of a read, but soooo much angst! The MC is all up in her own head and it's kind of a drag. It was so bad, I thought her self-loathing and lack of self-worth was going to turn out to be some sort of curse put on her, but nope. She just fucking hates herself. A real bummer to read. ...more

Applause, applause....standing ovation!!!

I've read every one of the wonderful Mystic Cove series. I learned yesterday that Morgan's book was out a nd instantly downloaded it. My heart broke for her from the start. Protective like a hedgehog, she keeps everyone at bay for fear if getting hurt. Growing up alone and orphaned with nobody else gifted around her....suffice to say she had a tough and brutal childhood. Opening up to anyone, let as lone Fiona and her "girls" would not 've easy.

I was excited to pick this book up on sale, and delve back into the world that Tricia O’Malley had built with Wild Irish Heart. I thoroughly enjoyed the first book in the series, and the short story Wild Irish Roots. Which only served to highlight my disappointment as I read Wild Irish Rebel.

The story didn’t read as a final draft, it felt like a first draft that still needed work. There were also formatting issues with the ebook, that I feel should have been caught before being put up for sale.

I love this series of magical, mystical, powerful Irish women who belong to the descendants of the female pirate, Grace, who guards the cove and draws her girls to it. Morgan has extreme magical powers, more than the other women in town, and she is tested to use them for good. She is frightened that she will be forced to leave, as she was by all her foster parents. Will she opt to stay and face the judgment of the townspeople or will she run from the only love she's ever known? Will Patrick acce ...more

Wild Irish Rebel is book four in the Mystic Cove series by Tricia O’Malley. This delightful series takes place in Ireland where magic is possible. It is a great series about the descendants of Grace O’Malley, pirate and mystic being. It brings the tales of Ireland to life.
Morgan McKensie had a hard life. She was abandoned by her Mother and put into foster care. Here, because of her powers which were unchecked and of which she wasn’t entirely aware, she was shuttled from home to home. When she w

Young Love, First Love

Nineteen-year-old Morgan McKenzie has been alone and living on her own for 3 years. Her rough life has left her angry, aloof and afraid of abandonment,so she keeps moving from place to place to avoid being hurt by those she meets. And she has a very special “gift” she doesn’t know how to control and fears it will make her even more of an outcast if discovered.

This is a great summer read. Magic, romance, family ties and an orphan child coming into her own. This is just a pleasurable read perfect for a hot summer day. It takes your mind away from hot, sticky, humid weather to the cool shores of Grace’s Cove in Ireland, the fourth book in the mystic cove series. If you like to be entertained, this book certainly does the trick. I chose this book to read now because I just wanted to believe, for a little while, in the power of women who heel, perform ext ...more

This is the 4th book of a 6 book series. This book is about Morgan who had a really tough childhood. She learns to finally make some friends in Mystic Cove but is afraid of her powers sometimes when they get out of control and afraid of what people will think of her. Although I thought all of her powers were really cool. She seemed to have every power that each of the other women had.
She's able to find some guidance not only in Aislinn but also in Fiona who has helped each of the girls along the

Tricia O'Malley has a good way of creating characters I can connect with. I really felt for Morgan as she struggled to come to terms with her relationships and her powers. However, her powers were too exaggerated and the romance wasn't very exciting, but the friendships were much more interesting. After reading this I got a bit tired of the series and had to take a long break before I decided to continue on. I debated whether or not to continue and if perhaps it would have been enough to have a ...more

Wonderful, beautiful, touching, captivating ... there are no words that fully describe how Ms. O'Malley makes me feel when reading these books. I've always wanted to visit Ireland and see the rolling green hills, cliffs, and sea. This is the Ireland I can picture as I read this series. Ms. O'Malley takes me there in vivid pictures. The scenery, the people, the intertwined past and present of a mystic Celtic lifestyle thrills me. Best ever series. ...more

Morgan’s story! Morgan was an Orphan who by chance was also a descendant of Grace. Not realizing that she moved to Grace’s Cove into a community full of people who are gifted just like her. Morgan struggles with accepting herself and letting others in. Patrick easily accepts her and wants to move forward with a relationship with Morgan. This was a fun read for those of you who enjoy a little magic.

By the fourth book in this series, I’ve about had it with whiny, angry women.

Martin Luther said we should always put the best possible construction on what people say. These women (obviously) haven’t heard Martin Luther. They always put the worst possible construction on just about everyone says to them — especially for that person is the H. And if it’s not easy to put the worst possible construction on something, they work really hard at it so they can succeed in being “w”itches.

Very Interesting Continuation of this Series

I love series books and thus author does better than most on intertwining upcoming and previous characters into each current book. While I am definitely not in agreement with the author's underlying comments about Christianity and religion, this was a very fun book to read.

I do like this series and enjoyed "meeting" Morgan. But the story should have been developed more and I truly did not like Patrick. I think he borders on mentally abusive to Morgan and is not a very safe relationship for Morgan's first love. If these two people were real and not fictional I could see this relationship going horribly wrong. I wanted to send him packing! ...more

This has been my favorite book out of this series so far. My heart went out to Morgan and I almost held my breath with the visit of Grace.

Wonderful story. Didn’t want to stop reading. Morgan was always a drifter. She didn’t stay in one place very long. When she came to the cove, she worked for Shane on his boat. Morgan’s story isn’t so exciting. She finally went to Fiona
Who helped her discover who she really was. This was one of the best stories, you must read this one.

I loved this book as much as all the others in the series.

Hers and Patrick's romance was rocky but had some really special moments. Can’t wait to read Margaret’s series next! ...more

I like how the book is written to where you can visualize the cove, the town, and the businesses etc. Tricia has become one of my newest favorite authors. On to book 5.

All I can say is oh my goodness.

Tricia has done it again. I can see it in my head as I am reading it. Morgan is me. So unsure of herself because of everything she has been through. Cannot wait to read the next one

Morgan is orphaned and lived a horrible childhood. She isn't good at relationships. She didn't stay in any one place; no roots. She is full of surprises.

Of the 4 books I've read so far, this is the best.

Oh, wow! Oh, Wow!! Oh, WOW!!

This is the first tear jerker in the series for me. But there were parts that made me uneasy. And still some pages made me laugh. Now I must read book 5.
