Best Irish Historical Romances!

I initially developed this list for a friend of Irish descent who loves Irish historical romances and asked me to recommend some. But since then, I have updated this list each year as I have come to love Irish romances that feature Ireland, Irish heroes or heroines, or Irish immigrants in America. The books on this list cover all time periods. Some transcend typical historical romance as they bring to life heartrending tales of the wonderful Irish people who survived much hardship to help make America (and Australia in one case) great.

This list contains only those I have rated 4 or 5 stars. If you’re looking for stories of the Emerald Isle or handsome Irish hunks, or worthy Irish heroines to inspire, you will find them here:
