Saving her country from terrorists could cost Special Agent Molly Malone her heart.

If misfortune should ever follow you, may it never catch up.  — Old Irish Proverb

Molly Malone didn’t think things could get worse. Her first undercover assignment as a new FBI agent isn’t going well, and the Irish terrorists she’s trying to get close to won’t take the bait. To cement her cover, she’s forced to team up with her ex, Special Agent Zach Saint — and play an engaged couple in love. Swallowing her hurt and anger to salvage the mission is almost more than she can bear, but if she doesn’t, she’ll lose her chance to get close to the terrorists and confirm their plans. Her Irish luck alone won’t get her through this one, but can she put her life and heart in Zach’s keeping again?

Zach Saint doesn’t want Molly in the middle of danger, yet that’s exactly where he finds her. Determined to help, he agrees to a fake engagement where he can stay close and keep her safe. Events quickly spiral out of his control, however, when he realizes two things: his feelings for Molly never went away, and a lethal terrorist attack is imminent. Working together is difficult and learning to trust each other again nearly impossible. But, if they want to bring down the terrorists and have a chance at a future together, they’ll have to do both — and the clock is ticking.

Irish Fun!

So, they speak English in Ireland . . . right? Yes—and no. Of course, they speak Irish too (they don't call it Gaelic!), but their variety of English is pretty unique as well! I got to learn all about it, and even had an Irish person read through my book to make sure I got it right. Here are some phrases in Irish English slang and dialect. Can you match them to their American English equivalents?
Your man made a hames of that sliced pan, the eejit.That thingamajig’s broken, you know.
Whisht, ya bold chiseler!Did you see the sweater on that untrustworthy person, then?
That wagon does be giving out to those poor childer.Hush, you naughty child!
Did you see the gansey on that sleeveen, so?That guy made a mess of that loaf of bread, the idiot.
That yokiemabob’s banjaxed, you know yourself.That unpleasant woman is always reprimanding those poor children.

See this Irish slang and more in action when you read Saints & Suspects!

Molly must protect her new priest from the criminals in their parish. But Father Tim is more than he seems: he's an undercover FBI agent there to root out the mob. Falling in love might put both their names on the mobsters' hit list.

When she finds her priest murdered, Molly Malone, secretary of their Catholic parish, vows to never let it happen again. She’ll use the full force of her Irish will, and her previous stint on the Irish police force, to protect the new priest from the congregation’s rumors of criminal activity.

Falling in love wasn’t part of her plan. However, young, handsome and—dare she even think it?—flirtatious, Father Tim O’Rourke is nothing she expected. But Father Tim is also nothing like he seems to Molly: he’s Special Agent Zach Saint, an LDS FBI agent undercover to root out the mob that’s hiding in the parish.

And Molly isn’t helping: every time Zach gets close to the mob, Molly manages to get in the way. Falling for her is the last thing he needs. Now Zach must find the murderer and catch the mobsters before his feelings for Molly blow his cover and add another murder or two to the mobsters’ docket.
