A high-society wedding planner, a hunky best man, and an enchanted elevator… who can resist An Irish Flirtation?
Jillian Baxter has worked hard to build her event planning business, and this wedding is proof that she’s made it. The problem? The bride redefines bridezilla. After months of work, Jillian now has three weeks to move a huge society wedding from New York to an Irish castle.
Luckily, Castle Tullamore Hotel is available. Although… it’s a bit odd. When Jillian arrives and meets the groom’s brother, Fin, it’s almost like magic steps in. She knows bridezilla would never stand for fraternization, but despite doing her best to keep her distance, Jillian finds herself unable to resist Fin… especially in that damn elevator!

I recently finished the newest book in the Emerald Isle Enchantment series and I knew that I wanted to read more. While this book doesn’t revolve around the same characters it does revolve around the same location, the Castle Tullamore Hotel. I hoped that it would expand on some of the back stories of the location I was just beginning to learn about. I was excited to read this short novella.
Jillian is a wedding planner in NYC. She takes her job very seriously. She is a consummate professional. She has worked very hard to build her business up and to get a good reputation. Everything is going swimmingly until the bride for her upcoming wedding calls and demands that she move everything over to Ireland so she can get married closer to her fiance’s Irish roots. She also demands to get married in a castle. Jillian is dumbfounded. How is she going to manage it? She is thrown a life-line in the form of a phone call from the groom. He gives her his brothers number who still lives in Ireland. She calls his brother, Finlan, and he offers her the use of his personal assistant. She gratefully accepts. When she arrives in Ireland for the last preparations before the wedding, she is surprised to find that the groom’s brother has arrived at the castle to help her with anything she made need. When they finally meet, sparks fly. Will the castles magical elevator pull one of its famous tricks? Will the haunted rose garden approve of the match?
This book was so good. I have read several Louisa Masters book and this one certainly doesn’t disappoint in the hot and steamy department. While this book actually came out prior to her most recent one, Irish Attraction, it is not necessary to read it beforehand. You can read them as a stand alone. You do get an idea about what is special about the castle and meet some of the staff members of the hotel. The book is short and sweet coming in at just 83 pages. While it is short it is well written and there are no loose ends hanging when you reach the end. The characters are well rounded and have backstories. I can’t wait until the next book comes out and continues the story of the wonderful Castle Tullamore Hotel.
