Father’s Day! 

Sure, your Dad is great (and my Dad is great, hi Dad!) but some of literature’s greatest villains are some real…bad Dads. As a part of our Father’s Day reading lists…we’re doing…the worst Dads in literature!

Mr. Bennet

Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen

This well-written, supernatural steamy romance tells the story of a woman searching for her roots in Ireland and stumbling across love as well.

Le Père Goriot

Jean-Joachim Goriot by Honoré de Balzac

Flynn O’Brien is a sexy alpha male, he’s a boss in the Irish mafia and he’s got a big secret. This hot and gritty romance will keep you on the edge of your seat all the way to the end.

King Lear

King Lear by William Shakespeare

This bundle is a steal! Four novel length books in one, including a USA Today Bestselling book: High Warrior. All four novels are historical romances that mix the legends of Ireland with steamy romance.

Michael Henchard

The Mayor of Casterbridge by Thomas Hardy

This sweet international romance tells the story of a young woman in 1950s rural Ireland who falls in love with an American marine and moves across the world to be with him. Sixty years later she returns with her daughter. This is a romance, and also the touching story of family bonds. Truly heartwarming!

Set in 1960s, rural Ireland, a young woman dreams of starting a new life in America. However when tragedy strikes and long hidden secrets start to come to light, our heroine struggles to cope. When she meets the handsome Michael O’Sullivan the two of them embark on a passionate affair.
