Night has fallen. Someone stole James Clifton’s horse. Now he’s alone, on foot, and in danger. This poor section of Dublin is no place to be caught after dark. When three men attack James, a young man comes to his aid, then disappears into the night.
Eighteen-year-old Molly Flanagan spends her days being invisible—a nobody. But when the sun sets, she visits those she’s teaching to read and write, traversing the poorer sections of Dublin dressed as a young man, and armed with her wits and the defensive skills she learned at the Sisterhood School.
Weeks pass, fate throws Molly and James together, again…this time she’s dressed as a woman of his class, not a young man. They’re attracted to one another, but Molly rebuffs him. She has no time for unexpected entanglements. Her family think she’s dead, and she prefers it that way. Her return to Ireland, after a six-year absence, is temporary and she must finish her business and leave before her secrets are exposed.
A promise to her dead mother drew Molly home and now a chance meeting could heal her reluctant heart or turn into a deadly end. If you’re a fan of plot-twisting surprises and romantic suspense, purchase your boxed set of The Reluctant Heart (Parts One & Two) today!
