Rory Haven and Brittany Manion knew one another as children...

...but it's been a long time since their childhood summers at Summerhaven.

The Havens weren't the children who attended exclusive Summerhaven Camp in Center Sandwich, New Hampshire. They were the children of the owners, expected to “pull their weight” and absolutely forbidden to fraternize with the paying guests. But that didn't keep Rory from having a quiet, unrequited crush on gorgeous, popular, insanely-rich, Brittany Manion for three tortuous summers.

When all-grown-up, recently-engaged Brittany books the off-season summer camp for her upcoming spring wedding, she immediately recognizes Rory as the scorching-hot boy who wouldn’t give her the time of day. Meanwhile Rory, who senses that Brittany’s nuptials are less about Mr. Right and more about Mr. Right Now, launches the fight of his life to win the heart of the girl he’s always wanted.

Fighting Irish is a sweet and sexy romance from one of my favorite authors, Katy Regnery. I loved this book!

As with all of Katy Regnery’s books I was easily swept away with the story. I stayed up late to finish Fighting Irish and could not put this book down. The Summerhaven Trio series revolves around Irish-American triplets Rory, Ian and Tierney Haven. Growing up as the children of the owners of an exclusive Summerhaven Camp was not easy. They worked alongside their parents and were forbidden to fraternize with the paying guests. For young Rory, socialite camper Brittany Manion will always bring back good memories.  Rory obeyed his parents (to avoid the wrath of his high-tempered Irish Mother) and admired Brittany from afar. Fast forward 10 years and Rory and Brittany meet again, but this time Rory has taken over Summerhaven Camp and Brittany is planning her wedding. The moment they reunite their attraction is strong. When Brittany’s world is shattered their friendship grows stronger and their chemistry is sizzling. Fighting Irish is a second-chance romance that had me going through so many emotions.  I was laughing, crying and swooning.

Ms. Regnery created a world I wanted to be part of and characters I felt a connection with. Brittany’s insecurities were genuine, and my heart broke along with hers. Rory’s sacrifice of his dreams to help his family showed the strong family bond between the siblings.  With Katy Regnery’s books I know that there will be a romance with passion and a message of family unity.

Fighting Irish is a heartwarming introduction to the new series and I can’t wait to read the next books.

About Katy Regnery

New York Times and USA Today bestselling author Katy Regnery started her writing career by enrolling in a short story class in January 2012. One year later, she signed her first contract and Katy’s first novel was published in September 2013.

Twenty-five books later, Katy claims authorship of the multi-titled, New York Times and USA Today Blueberry Lane Series, which follows the English, Winslow, Rousseau, Story, and Ambler families of Philadelphia; the six-book, bestselling ~a modern fairytale~ series; and several other standalone novels and novellas.

Katy’s first modern fairytale romance, The Vixen and the Vet, was nominated for a RITA® in 2015 and won the 2015 Kindle Book Award for romance. Katy’s boxed set, The English Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1–4, hit the USA Today bestseller list in 2015, and her Christmas story, Marrying Mr. English, appeared on the list a week later. In May 2016, Katy’s Blueberry Lane collection, The Winslow Brothers Boxed Set, Books #1-4, became a New York Times E-book bestseller.

In 2016, Katy signed a print-only agreement with Spencerhill Press. As a result, her Blueberry Lane paperback books will now be distributed to brick and mortar bookstores all over the United States.

Katy lives in the relative wilds of northern Fairfield County, Connecticut, where her writing room looks out at the woods, and her husband, two young children, two dogs, and one Blue Tonkinese kitten create just enough cheerful chaos to remind her that the very best love stories begin at home.
