Patrick and Sunday Collins had seven Wild Irish children. Each has had a story told of love lost and found and the sexy and sensual journey in between. While Wild Irish Christmas works as a stand-alone it’s really the eighth in the Wild Irish series, and in my opinion so much better read in order.
After reading what incredible children they’ve raised it’s only natural to wonder how it all started. And that’s exactly what this does, while revisiting old friends and getting updates on their lives we get to travel to Ireland and see how it all began.
With his wife Sunday gone – having died of cancer – all seven children decide to spend Christmas Eve with their father in the small home they grew up in. As the traditional Christmas Eve toasts are given a bottle of whiskey is passed around, the children question a toast their father makes. So Patrick shares the story of how he met, nearly lost and finally won the love of their mother.
Wild Irish Christmas is a very emotional story because it’s bitter-sweet in nature. You can feel how much they loved each other, how close he came to never knowing her love, of having their children, and yet in the end, she’s still gone. It clearly showcases the “It’s better to have loved and lost, than never have loved at all.” cliché.
While a short read, Wild Irish Christmas is like a shot of aged Irish Whisky; it’s bold with a smooth delivery that leaves you warm and comforted – and perhaps a little teary – on a cold winter’s night.
"To Conall Brannagh."
Ewan took the bottle from his father. "Who?"
"Conall Brannagh," Patrick repeated. "If your mother had chosen him over me, none of us would be here tonight."
It's Christmas Eve, and the Collins siblings have given their father a precious gift. All seven have gathered together to spend the night in his apartment above the family pub, the warm, loving home where Patrick and Sunday raised their large brood.
You've witnessed each child find their happy-ever-after. Now gather 'round the tree and share a bottle of Jameson with the Collins family while Patrick shares the story of how he won the heart of Sunday, his true love, his soul mate.and the mother of his seven Wild Irish.
Blush sensuality level: This is a sensual romance (may have explicit love scenes, but not erotic in frequency or type)
