Guest Blog: Tricia Andersen: Really...You're a Month Early...

Valentine’s Day is coming up pretty quick and I’ve been informed by my hubby to clear my calendar, we’re going out? Where are we going? I have no idea. But if I could have the perfect Valentine’s Day with no limits we wouldn’t be going to any chain restaurant. In fact, where we would go might be more suitable for a holiday coming up in the following month – St. Patrick’s Day.

Ever since I did research for my Black Irish series I’ve wanted to go to Ireland. After reading Karen Marie Moning’s Fever Series I’ve wanted to visit Dublin. So my dream Valentine’s date would start with a flight to Dublin, Ireland. To make it special for the hubby we would check out Guinness (he loves Guinness!). Then, after going back to change, we would head out to find something to eat followed by a trip to the Temple Bar.

What would we have for our special Valentine’s meal? Would it be lobster? Steak? Truthfully, I would be happy with a big burger – only because spaghetti might not fit in an Irish city.

I am looking forward to Valentine’s Day. But I would love to give my special night with my hubby a little Celtic twist.

BLURB:
Being lured home to Belfast, Northern Ireland, by the lie that he is a free man, Sloan O’Riley is arrested for the bombing in London he never committed. His only chance to stop his condemnation and execution is his wee wife, Abbey.

Abbey throws herself into her husband’s past with the Irish Republican Army to construct the one thing that can free him – a bomb. With the help of her mother and Sloan’s sister, Maggie, she targets empty, crumbling buildings throughout Belfast to cast doubt on Sloan’s guilt.

As things heat up in the courtroom and on the streets of Belfast, Abbey fights for Sloan’s freedom. Will her actions free Sloan from prison and from those who would like to see him dead? And will their love withstand Abbey becoming just like Sloan?

Tricia, I hope you get to go to Dublin for Valentine's Day. The whole of Ireland is lovely and filled with so much rich history.

Your story sounds fascinating.
