A less than 12 page short story found in the freebie section of the NOOK store. This is a prequel to McCabe's historical romance series set in Ireland. I thought the romance was fine, as the reader is dropped into the relationship at the point where both parties say the big "I Love You" to each other. The point that took this story down from a solid 2.5 stars is that the ending is VERY ABRUPT. I would rather have had an ending where everyone at the Rose and Shamrock pub toasted to the new couple rather than a brand new plotline dropped in the last paragraph. I liked enough to try the first book in the series in the future.
