Like most good Irish stories, Killian’s is filled with humor and heartache. But with new hope in his life, he struggles to rise above his grief and overcome his past.

--Present-day Ireland (Cork, Kinsale, Old Head)--

“Lucky in love” is certainly not a description fitting for Killian Murphey.

Killian…
Yes, once again, my Bridey has flown, and I am a lost man. How many times can a man fall to his knees and rise again? It’s changed me from a person without a serious thought to a bitter lush I hardly recognize. I want to drink it all away, and if that doesn’t work, get into yet another fight until the physical pain overshadows my ache for her.

But when his aunt’s prattling tongue betrays a secret, Killian’s search for answers leads to Cork and the home of the lovely Fiona McDougal.

Fiona…
When I opened the door and saw him standing there, my stomach took a dive. The spitting image of my son, I knew who he was before he spoke his name. Had he come to take Cal away from me?

Meanwhile, Cal has fallen in love with a fair lass who happens to be his mom’s employee.

While trouble befalls the folks at What’s Your Pint?, the crazy crew of Tag, Bre, Deirdre, and Paddy, along with the locals, still manage to laugh, love and live their lives together amid the turmoil of SATAN’S SPAWN.
