The stunning conclusion to the Irish romance series, The Murphys, follows veterinarian, Ashlyn Murphy in her fight to preserve her legacy, against the one man who threatens to destroy it all.

This is my legacy. Rolling green fields in the Irish countryside, dotted with horses, practicing veterinary medicine and riding said horses when I want to. True, I have no one to leave it all to, but still, it’s mine. And no arrogant daddy’s boy and his big bad corporation, that also happens to neighbor my property is going to convince me to sell it. Not even if he is sex in a suit. Not even if he shares my love of horses, dogs and children. Not even if he offers me enough money to build my dream rehabilitation center for horses.
Well, maybe that last one. And the sex in a suit doesn’t hurt either. Damn.

Murphy’s Law Series



How can I want a woman so bad when she represents everything I despise? I can’t get her out from under my skin and I’m not entirely sure I want to. But there’s more at stake here than meets the eye. I’ve got responsibilities and she’s got secrets. Together, we’re destined for disaster, but I’m willing to risk it all for her, the problem is, I don’t know if she’s willing to risk anything for me.

Running from my problems is my specialty. That and managing to sabotage every relationship I’ve ever had. So it makes sense that I jumped at a chance to go film in Ireland and leave my philandering boyfriend at home in LA. Yup, I’d rather run across the ocean than deal with that. Then Brennan Murphy threw me out of his pub and I jumped into the very thing I was trying to avoid. I had worked too hard to bury my secrets and it would take a lot more than heated words and scorching looks to get me to give into the temptation of throwing it all away for one guy. Albeit, one hot, bearded mountain of a man.




I’m a doctor.  Not just any doctor.  I’m an OB/GYN, so I know my way around the female anatomy.  It goes without saying, I’m pretty comfortable around women.  That is, until one particular bespectacled beauty makes me incredibly uncomfortable.  And suddenly, I’ve got no clue whatsoever what to do about this particular woman.


I did it.  I had a one night stand and now all the warnings my momma gave me are coming true.  I’m pregnant and he’s not really into relationships, let alone the instant family kind.  So, I’m going it alone in Ireland, a country I’ve only just moved to, and ready to be a single mother, until my search for a doctor leads me right back to him.




Things I’m good at:

  • Cracking encrypted code.
  • That’s about it.

I’m Special Agent Nixon Rivers.  My job was to fly to Ireland, gather intel and then get out.  It wasn’t gather intel, get into her pants and then get out.  And it certainly wasn’t gather intel, get in her pants, accidentally fall in love with her and then get out.  I was in deep, in more ways than one.  The enigmatic and beautiful tech wizard, Keeva Murphy was going to be successful at the one thing no one before her had been.  Breaking me down and uncovering all of my secrets.


I knew the minute I sat down beside him on the plane he would destroy me.  I tried to keep my distance, but the mysterious, sexy uber geek Nixon wouldn’t take no for an answer.  I should have listened to my obnoxious Irish family, but I let him in.  And life as I knew it would never be the same.  Loving a man with so many secrets was the hardest code I ever had to break.




I’ve got my priorities straight and nothing is going to move me away from them. Work is my number one priority, followed closely by women. Notice I said women. I’m a one and done kind of guy. See priority number one. Being a partner and defense attorney in my law firm doesn’t leave me much time to explore relationships. Besides, I’ve been told relationships aren’t my thing by enough women to know when to play to my strengths. I was pretty solid in this belief, until my priorities got a rude awakening and a new number one took over. Now, I’m flying half way around the world to Ireland to stand face to face with the family that’s pretended I don’t exist for the past five years and try to fix all the things I destroyed, including myself. What I didn’t expect was that on my road to redemption, I’d suddenly do anything to make Violet McGregor, my high school crush, my new priority.
This is a story of love, redemption and above all, family.
