Briana is a scrappy hellion in skirts. She is the best example of a father's worst nightmare-a tomboy extraordinaire. One can feel every wound Briana receives and marvels at her recovery during a time in history when medicine smoldered in the dark ages, but healing was often better than we have today.
Very good plot and characterization.
Regaled with tales of her brothers' adventures, Briana hoped to follow in their footsteps and fight for the freedom of their homeland. But while she'd dreamed of joining the fray, she'd never considered that she herself would ever fall victim to an enemy's sword....
When embittered Keane O'Mara found the wounded Briana, he thought the fight for freedom had claimed another innocent, but her remarkable recovery lit a spark of hope deep within him. And he knew that with this woman by his side they would soon regain what was rightfully theirs!
Part of the O'Neil Saga.
A family driven by destiny.

Great Irish Romance!
A wonderful book about the youngest child in the O'Neil Saga who is quite rebellious and hates the English that encroach upon her land. When she endagers herself, her overbearing father sends her away to a convent . . . and once she is allowed to return she encouters English soldiers who leave her for dead, believing she is a boy. She is then rescued by a very troubled Irish lord who lived most of his life in England. Together they find love, but deny it till the end . . . one of the best Harlequin books I have read.
