    This is the third in Seymour's Irish historical trilogy (THE BLACK SWAN, ROSE IN THE MIST and THE IRISH GYPSY), about the love stories of the three Riordan brothers from County Meath, west of Dublin. The powerful family was devoid of women until the brothers took wives.Set in 1567 (Prologue) and 1574, it tells the story of Maura, daughter of an Irish lass and a Gypsy leader. Raised with the Gypsies, Maura is steeped in their folklore and wisdom. When her father dies, she flees the new leader who is a lecherous, vile man. As she does, she steals the horse of Eamon Riordan, middle brother in the Riordan family. Years later, Maura returns to Ireland, and through a series of events, becomes the governess to Cormac Riordan's three children. When Eamon discovers Maura hidden in his own home, he decides to keep her secret.Of the three in the trilogy, the last two are the best and I preferred the second, ROSE IN THE MIST, among those. All have some references to the O"Neill rebellion and historical events, though only the second had any contact with Queen Elizabeth's court. This third takes place entirely in Ireland. It's fairly good and the writing and dialog are well done. Neither the hero nor the heroine is the best of those in the trilogy but are still worthy characters. I can recommend it.For "the rest of the story" see Dr. John Black's romance in THE MAID OF KILLARNEY.

    Ana Seymour has done some erratic work for the Irish Eyes series, some of their best and a couple of their slower ones. But she is on target with this witty tale, the last in the Riordan Brothers trilogy.Eamon Riodan was angry his horse was stole, and rightly so. When tracks down the gypsy that stole it, he finds she had red-hair. Instead of denying she stole his animal, she admits it, the promptly picks up a rock and beans him.Seven years later their path clash...this time she has been hired to teach his young nephew. He is sure she got the position through guile, because what was a gypsy doing as a governess? Well, this time she is out to steal his heart.A wonderful end to the trilogy and solid work from Seymour

    Cormac Riordan seeks his brother Eamon to share the news that the former Irish rebel leader `The O'Neill' is dead, and finds him sitting beside a campfire. Just moments after Cormac's arrival they learn their prized stallions have been stolen. It's dark of night and unable to begin tracking, the brothers try to sleep. Eamon wakes up first and sees a young lad leading Cormac's horse. He quickly leans the lad is a lassie as she explains why she's returning one of the stallions, and quick as a wink, the tiny mite knocks him out with a rock - a situation he isn't happy to describe to his big brother. Amused at first, the twinkle leaves Cormac's eyes when he realizes Eamon is really hurt and he insists they go home at once. Eamon would rather go after the little thief, but he's still so dizzy he has no choice but to agree.The night Maura's father died, Pietro took on the role as leader of the Gypsy troupe and tried to rape her. The frightened young girl fled into the woods and stole a stallion to escape and later sells it for coin to survive. Seven years pass, and feeling strong enough to take care of herself now, Maura searches for the only family she knows. Fate is about to put another piece of her puzzled life together, and instead of the Gypsy camp, she finds Eamon, who has been securely bound to a tree by his mischievous nephews playing Robin Hood. Eamon senses Maura is familiar to him, but can't place from where. Before he has a chance to say more than a few words while she unties him, he looks up to find the little beauty is gone.Finally finding the camp turns out to be a sad time for Maura, and another encounter with the loathsome Pietro has her running away again. This time fate takes her into the Riordan home as tutor to the mischievous children. Eamon is away from home, and by the time he returns Maura is well loved and accepted by the family. Eamon remembers the little horse thief and their encounter, but for reasons of his own keeps her secrets - those he knows of anyway.Maura never knew her Irish mother and her Gypsy father died when she was a young teen.In spite of this she's matured to become an honest woman with a pure heart and an abundance of love she shares with others. However, being raised by the Romany, she knows most people assume they are all liars and thieves, a fact that leaves her with a low self esteem, and believing she will not be accepted if her background is known. Maura demonstrates great inner strengths as she strives to conquer her inadequacies. These traits along with her innocence and beauty attract Eamon like no other woman has been able to.Eamon is a scholar and spends much of his time in his library. He's a fierce warrior, yet a warm and tender Beta man who isn't afraid to show compassion. He adores his brother's children and spends a lot of time romping with them or telling them tall tales. He's kind and considerate, and sees people for who they are and not what they are - a trait practiced by the whole Riordan family, and one that will be severely tested later in the story.Ana Seymour's trilogy began with THE BLACK SWAN, the outstanding story that introduced us to the huge, handsome Riordan brothers and features Cormac and Claire. ROSE IN THE MIST followed, telling a completely different story of adventure with strong protagonists in Niall and Catriona. It saddens me to know IRISH GYPSY is the last of the series because I have enjoyed reading about this family. Though IRISH GYPSY is a complete story by itself, I would encourage you to read the first two installments as well. Ms. Seymour's Riordan brothers are all special fellows, all have their own unique personalities and the capacity to love and make you love them. This trilogy has the kind of stories you want to finish as soon as you begin, and I highly recommend them all as enjoyable reads.Carol Carter as posted at Romance Reviews Today
