“Lock up your daughters and even their maids, neither are safe from that Bright Haired Scoundrel, Lord Greystowe’s uncivilized heir!”

So the London papers decree and notorious rake Kieran O’Flaherty flees to Ireland to hide from the scandal attached to his name. He’s tired of having his grandfather direct his life and wants to escape the life of a dependent heir as he settles into his ancestral home. At Roisin Dubh Castle, Kieran meets Rose de Lacy, a determined spinster who follows the philosophy of a revolutionary feminist writer.

For Rose, the joke is on the absentee English landlord as she is the steward in charge of his estates--a position traditionally held by men. Through correspondence to England, she's known only as The Honorable R. de Lacy. She's been assured that the elderly Lord Greystowe is too ill to come inspect his new property. When Baron Grey, his grandson, suddenly arrives, Rose is certain she'll be sacked for her deception because she's a woman.

Rose challenges Kieran O'Flaherty in ways he never expected. She cherishes her freedom and seems to be the only woman immune to his charms. Can he convince Rose love is not the life indentured servitude she imagines it to be?

As an adept in the magical arts, Kieran O’Flaherty struggles to win the hearts of his people, the Fierce O’Flahertys, and to free Black Rose Castle from a menacing evil that has taken up residence there. He encounters creatures of legend, including a clever fae hidden among his staff, an old druid sorcerer and the Banshee of the O'Flaherty Clan. Will they help him vanquish the evil abiding in his home?

Sequel to Dark Hero, A Gothic Romance by Lily Silver (includes first pages excerpt from Dark Hero)
