Irish, Ranchers and Words of Love

In honor of my two recent releases this last week and the third releasing in March, I thought I would help with the language of the O’Connors. The endearments you will see in the book. In the back of Rancher’s Creed, you will find the list of words but for those of you who would like it separately, here it is.

I loved telling the Story of Ciaran and Katie O’Connor, the second sibling in the O’Connor Saga to have his story told. I loved my own loving family, and yes, I am part Irish, but I have created this family from my own loving memories of a large extended family and my love of strong loving men and the feisty women they are lucky enough to find.

I don’t speak Gaelic but I have learned so much about it and so would like to share with you, “love,” as Siobhan O’Connor would say, “in the Irish”.
