Best Irish Historical Romances!

I developed this list for a friend of Irish descent who loves Irish historical romances and asked me to recommend some. There are many romances that feature Ireland, Irish heroes and heroines, or Irish immigrants in America. Some of the stories transcend typical historical romance as they bring to life heartrending tales of wonderful Irish characters who survived much hardship to help make America great.

This list contains only those I have rated 4 or 5 stars. I hope you find some among them that will bring to mind the Emerald Isle and perhaps give you dreams of an Irish hunk.
