Lady Ivy and the Irishman


About the Book: 

Bound by her family’s expectations, Lady Ivy never though freedom would come in the form of a charming Irish baron with a penchant for flirtation.

Lady Ivy Amberton, weighed down by her family’s expectations, has often struggled to navigate the complexities of high society—until the arrival of Lord Dunmore, a dashing Irish baron whose open charm and spirited view of life turn her world upside down. As Ivy grapples with the unfamiliar thrill of attraction, she is compelled to reconsider her understanding of what it means to truly be herself.

Teague Frost, whose tenure in Parliament has cemented his views on the rigidity of the English, finds himself unexpectedly captivated by Ivy’s intelligence and grace. Her sincerity challenges his prejudices and sparks an affection he had not anticipated. Together, they explore the surprising depths of their connection, each learning to appreciate new truths about themselves and the world.

As their relationship deepens, Ivy and Teague are confronted with the profound implications of their attraction. Can Ivy embrace her true desires and the possibility of a love that defies her family’s plans? Will Teague allow his unexpected love to transform him, fighting for a future that honors both his heritage and his heart?

Set against the elegant backdrop of Regency England, “Lady Ivy and the Irishman” is a tale of self-discovery and unexpected love.

My Review: 

Sally Britton is one of my favorite Regency authors. She combines winsome and complex characters with delightful romance to create stories that make me smile every time. Lady Ivy is my kind of young lady because she feels the most at home in the library. “It didn’t matter where she was in the world, being surrounded by volumes of knowledge and stories soothed her heart and mind.” Ms. Britton writes a great antagonist! Fanny, Ivy’s sister-in-law, is the worst. I couldn’t stand her because she is forever trying to mold Ivy into what she thinks a lady should be instead of seeing all of the good qualities and bright mind that Ivy possesses. Teague Frost is comfortable in his own skin. He fights for what he believes in, even when he is looked down upon the British peerage due to being Irish. Teague sees the beauty of the very unconventional Ivy Amberton. He helps her to discover and embrace the knowledge that she is unique and lovely. Ivy has the right to be loved for who she is and not what others think she should be or do what Society expects. Things to love about this story: Opera glass meet cute Garden exploration Younger siblings He falls first “Magnetic spasm of attraction” Castle library Comparing flowers to personalities Musical party Learning Irish sayings I highly recommend this fifth book in the Clairvoir Castle series. It can be read as a standalone, but would be better enjoyed if you have read the previous books. You can be confident in recommending this book to readers from teen through adult. I vote that this series be made into a television mini series! I received a complimentary copy of the book. I voluntarily reviewed this book, and all opinions are my own.
