Great list! I would only add Cathy Cash Spellman's An Excess of Love, which recounts the adventures (romantic and otherwise) of two Anglo-Irish sisters around the time of the Easter Rebellion. I literally wore my copy out. An earlier Spellman book, So Many Partings, deals with the Irish experience in America, but I didn't lurrrve it as much as An Excess of Love. (Of her third saga, Paint the Wind, I will not speak.) Good stuff.

I've read some of Laurel McKee/Amanda McCabe's Irish novels, and I really want to try Michelle Willingham's Irish guys, too.

No-one will ever outdo Barrons, for me, but I'm willing to audition other Irish guys.

Thanks so much for recommending my book, Catch Me A Catch! I'm being cheeky here and recommending my new book, The Morning After, which features an Irish bad-boy actor, who's taking Hollywood by storm... he's based, naturally enough, on Colin Farrell! You can get a fairly good idea of him from reading the sample on Amazon...

I just relistened (audio books from the library) to the Born in Series from Nora Roberts. I've been reading the In Death series from book one and got my father and brother hooked on it too. I'll look into Catch me a Catch.
