Christmas Rainbows - If you believe in the magic of Christmas, you'll love Christmas Rainbows, a touching and sweet Irish love story of two broken souls in search of love! I spent a wonderful afternoon, reading this beautiful novella. Cynthia Owens, never disappoints me! Her stories are always well written, filled with strong emotions and tenderness. Some scenes are so emotional! Her charming characters will live a journey of ups and downs, healing and finally love!

In Sunshine or In Shadow - If you adore the stormy heroes of ‘Wuthering Heights’ and ‘Jane Eyre’ (and

who doesn't?) you'll be entranced by Owens' passionate story of Ireland after the Great Famine, and David Burke - a man from America with a hidden past and a secret name. Only one woman, the fiery, luscious 

Siobhan, can unlock the bonds that imprison him. Highly recommended for those who love classic romance and an action-packed story.

Deceptive Hearts - Cynthia Owens is an excellent storyteller and Deceptive Hearts has everything a read needs. This author wrote a touching story with loving characters with high emotions! I loved her two main characters Shane MacDermott and Lydia Daniels. Shane was one of those Wild Geese, Irish young men, forced to leave Ireland for America; he was also a hero of the Irish Brigade. This historical Irish story was very well written, filled with suspense, tenderness, intrigue and love! She is a high quality writer and one of my favorite authors for Irish romances! I could not put it down. Ms. Owens's books never disappoint me!

Keeper of the Light – Cynthia Owens has done it again. I got captivated by her Irish historical romance. She has me hooked to her series. I loved her two main characters Cathal Donnelly, an Irish rebel and Laura Bainbridge, a British young lady. You will need to read their beautiful story to get all the details. Ms. Owens is an author that pulls me into her story and I can't put it down. It's fast-paced, very well written and a breathtaking Irish romance! Let yourself be carried away by Owens’ strong characters and fascinating story filled with tenderness and passion.
