The trouble may be holding on to the woman of his dreams. Find out if this sexy Irish hero can save his happily-ever-after in What Love Can Do.

Ireland has always been home for the five O’Neill brothers, but several tragedies, including the recent death of their mother, have them feeling lost. After making an unexpected discovery, eldest son and former rugby player Quinn O’Neill heads to Forestville, California, in the enchanted river valley where his mother grew up. There, he hopes to learn more about his family and explore the possibility of settling someplace new.

Traveling the world before opening her own bakery is Lillian Parker’s dream, and she’s one step closer to achieving it after winning an internship with a world-famous pastry chef in Miami. Unfortunately, Lillian’s mother is pressuring her to stay in Forestville and help run the family B&B. Then a handsome Irishman blows through the door with charm and sex appeal to spare, and suddenly Lillian’s not sure what she wants.

Sparks instantly fly, and Lillian finds herself agreeing to show Quinn around the area. Soon their building feelings have them wishing for more time together. But Quinn’s just beginning to explore the magic of Green Valley wine country, and Lillian needs to stretch her wings. Even worse, exposed secrets pit Lillian’s family against Quinn’s, creating thorns in their blooming love.

Can passion survive conflicting family loyalties? And can love bond Quinn and Lillian together forever when dreams of adventure versus home and hearth threaten to keep them apart?

She stared at him a few moments. She looked as if there was more she wanted to say, and he imagined her unraveling her whole life’s dreams right here, opening herself to him in more ways than one, but she shook it off, pulling her phone from her pocket to stare at it. “Oh, my goodness. I have to get back. It was really nice chatting with you, Quinn.”

“Ah, sure, very nice. You work every day?” he heard himself say. Why was that? Did he want to see her again? Well, who wouldn’t? Just look at her.

“Most days, yeah. It’s starting to slow down now after Labor Day, but…why?”

“Ah, no reason. Just wondering. We’ll be here a week, my brother and I. Maybe I’ll see you around again?” It was casual enough. Not too hopeful or flirty. Stay focused. Do what you came to do. 
“Of course. Swing by in the morning. You can try my famous muffins.” She winked, flashed her bright, pretty smile, and tapped the back of the wingchair. “See you later.”

Quinn watched her walk away, trying to figure out what just happened. One moment, she seemed shy and nervous, and the next, she was winking, inviting him to try her famous muffins, like a paper doll trying on different styles of clothes. How famous were these muffins exactly? “Sounds lovely.” He was unable to contain his smile, nor did he want to.

When he stood, his head felt light, and it hit him all of a sudden just how exhausted he was. The tea may have tasted like piss water, but it had somewhat lull him into a relaxed state with the help of some nice conversation with the innkeeper’s daughter. In his room, he kicked off his shoes, undressed down to his scunders, and laid on the bed.

“Feck,” he said and closed his eyes. What a day it’d been.

He thought of the plane ride, of landing at LaGuardia and hearing the New Yorker accents, of arriving in San Francisco and driving through wine country. He thought of the grand scope of scenery, how different America looked on both coasts, even though he hadn’t seen much yet. Then, he thought of the first thing he noticed when he walked into the inn—the gorgeous blonde, craning her neck for another look at him.

She should be the one manning the welcome desk. Out in the open for all guests to admire, not tucked away and hidden. What a fine woman.
