Virna DePaul's St. Patty's Day Giveaway!
WIN Kindle Paperwhite & $50 Amazon GC


Join New York Times Author Bestselling Author Virna DePaul in celebrating St. Patrick’s Day
and WIN a Kindle Paper White!

Ms. DePaul’s Home to Green Valley contemporary series features five irresistible Irish brothers looking to learn more about their American mother and possibly find romance along the way.

Book One, What Love Can Do features the delectable eldest O’Neill brother Quinn.  He is traveling to California’s wine country to learn more about his mother’s past.  The last thing Quinn expects to find is Love! The trouble may be holding on to the woman of his dreams. Find out if this sexy Irish hero can save his happily-ever-after in What Love Can Do.




When a sweet and sassy baker meets the new Irishman in town, things start to sizzle...
Quinn O'Neill gave up being a professional rugby player to help his mam after his dad died, and now she's gone too.  All that's left for him in Dublin?  Four younger brothers, and elusive dreams to explore.  Then he finds a journal revealing family secrets, and heads to Northern California wine country, where his mam grew up.
That's when Quinn meets her...
Lilly Parker.  She's the baker at the B&B, an amazing gazelle of a woman. Blonde. Curvy. With high cheekbones that give her the look of an old-fashioned pin-up with a naughty side.  She's wearing a pink and black apron that reads Life is Short--Lick the Bowl, and all Quinn can imagine is them: her, wearing nothing but that apron, and him, licking and savoring.
The more time they spend together, the more Quinn believes Lilly's the one.  Only she's headed to Miami in a week's time to pursue her own dream, and he has a decision to make.
Does he go back to Dublin and his rugby career? Or does he make a home in the enchanted valley town, start his life fresh, and see if love's enough to make Lilly his forever?


Book Two, The Way Love Goes features the playboy of the O’Neill clan.  Conor O’Neill is looking to play the field as he starts his new surfing business but one looks at Madlyn Sanchez and his plans go out the window!



A middle child of five Irish brothers, Conor O’Neill always enjoyed life footloose and fancy free. Then Con’s mother dies and he’s never felt so lost. With his oldest brother, Con explores new possibilities in Green Valley, California, where his mother grew up. Finding inspiration in the great, wide Pacific, Con opens a surf shop in nearby Timber Cove where he meets the classiest lass he’s ever seen.

Madlyn Sanchez is surprised when the Irish surfer seems to take a liking to her. Older than him, a high-strung wedding planner, she couldn’t be more different than Conor. But the two have one thing in common—they’re both looking to start over. Before Madlyn knows it, they kick off an unlikely, passionate romance. But when Madlyn’s responsibilities in San Francisco can no longer be ignored, she kisses Con goodbye and wishes him well.

Missing Madlyn more than he ever thought possible, knowing he’s let one too many opportunities pass him by, Conor closes up shop to go after her. In San Francisco, however, he discovers the truth behind Madlyn’s real life—a child and an ex-husband still in residence. Con just learned to commit to one woman—can he commit to a child as well?

In no time at all, mother and son have Conor’s heart. But can an Irish rogue who once cherished his freedom convince the love of his life he’s more than ready to put down roots while still teaching her to fly?

Book Three, I’m Gonna Love You features sexy Alpha Brady O’Neill!  Brady may be used to getting his way but he has definitely met his match in Green Valley girl Anna Kincaid.  These two set the pages on fire with heat and heart but will they find love by St. Patrick’s Day?




 Steadfast and pragmatic Brady O’Neill, second eldest of five Irish brothers, never thought he’d leave Dublin. But after the death of his daughter and his parents, and the loss of his wife, Brady realizes he can no longer live in the city where he experienced his greatest joys and deepest heartaches. Moving to America, he joins his brothers in Forestville, California, to open a family restaurant. What he doesn’t expect is the spark he feels when he meets Anna Kincaid, a confident, gorgeous woman with enough sass to sink a ship. 

Owner of a local eco-adventure tour company, Anna Kincaid is familiar with all that is Forestville. So when recent Irish arrival, the insanely handsome and sexy Brady O’Neill, wants to visit the vineyard where his mother grew up, she agrees to be his guide. Soon, Brady’s showing his appreciation with more than flirtatious smiles and mind-boggling kisses. 

The chemistry between them may be explosive, but tensions heighten when Anna’s recklessness puts her in danger. Brady’s lost too much already; and a risk-taking woman with an impetuous nature could cost him yet again. Will Brady risk giving all he is to Anna? And will Anna learn that there’s no greater excitement in the world than taking a chance on love?

GIVEAWAY! What Love Can Do by Virna DePaul Excerpt Tour!


New York Times Bestselling Author Virna DePaul is excited to introduce readers to her latest heroes, the five Irish O’Neill brothers!  What Love Can Do begins the Home to Green Valley series with eldest son Quinn O’Neill traveling to California’s wine country to learn more about his mother’s past.  The last thing Quinn expects to find is Love! The trouble may be holding on to the woman of his dreams. Find out if this sexy Irish hero can save his happily-ever-after in What Love Can Do.


Ireland has always been home for the five O’Neill brothers, but several tragedies, including the recent death of their mother, have them feeling lost. After making an unexpected discovery, eldest son and former rugby player Quinn O’Neill heads to Forestville, California, in the enchanted river valley where his mother grew up. There, he hopes to learn more about his family and explore the possibility of settling someplace new.

Traveling the world before opening her own bakery is Lillian Parker’s dream, and she’s one step closer to achieving it after winning an internship with a world-famous pastry chef in Miami. Unfortunately, Lillian’s mother is pressuring her to stay in Forestville and help run the family B&B. Then a handsome Irishman blows through the door with charm and sex appeal to spare, and suddenly Lillian’s not sure what she wants.

Sparks instantly fly, and Lillian finds herself agreeing to show Quinn around the area. Soon their building feelings have them wishing for more time together. But Quinn’s just beginning to explore the magic of Green Valley wine country, and Lillian needs to stretch her wings. Even worse, exposed secrets pit Lillian’s family against Quinn’s, creating thorns in their blooming love.

Can passion survive conflicting family loyalties? And can love bond Quinn and Lillian together forever when dreams of adventure versus home and hearth threaten to keep them apart?



After an eleven-hour flight from Dublin to New York City, a layover, then another six-hour flight to San Francisco, plus car rental and driving time, the last thing Quinn expected was for his balls to tighten upon seeing the blond American woman working in the dining room of the Russian River House. She was quite possibly the most gorgeous girl he’d ever seen. Holy shite.

But damn, he was bushed and desperately needed a bed.

The last ten days had taken a huge toll on him. From the moment his mother had died to the day he’d called Richard Phillips, his maternal grandfather, to inform him that his daughter, Maggie Phillips O’Neill had passed away suddenly, only to get a hostile, “I don’t have a daughter named Maggie, nor do I have a grandson. Only two daughters here in Forestville,” Quinn had been doing his best to keep his spirits up. Old man Phillips might have kept his mam away with his belligerent attitude, but it wasn’t going to work on him. He had the right to know where Mam had grown up, see the sidewalks she had walked, the river she had loved, and the valley she’d adored.

Con had been a bit less eager to make the trip, saying Mam had made her choice to leave Green Valley and had been all the better for it, but Quinn had pestered Con into coming with him for a few reasons. One, to try and snap him out of his funk. Two, to get him out of Brady’s hair—they’d been bickering like chickens the last ten days, more than usual. And finally, to help him find closure over Mam’s death. Of course, that was something all his brothers needed, but Brady, Sean and Riley had obligations that needed tending. After they’d all agreed to cremate Mam’s body (despite his initial belief that Mam should be buried, Con, after reading Mam’s journal, had changed his mind), Brady, Sean and Riley agreed that Quinn and Con should journey to America first. If they still felt at the end of one week that it was what Mam would have wanted, they’d call the others, who’d then join them to spread her ashes.

Quinn felt optimistic it would all work out as it should. And while he hadn’t shared this with his brothers, he’d decided that if he liked it here, he’d extend his trip. If he didn’t, he’d return to Ireland like a good Irish boy ought to do.

So far, he was liking what he saw right in the dining room. 

Once again, Quinn glanced at the hot blond American, an amazing gazelle of a woman, even as the innkeeper droned on about things to do in the area, the bookstore down the street, the diner around the corner with the homemade cherry pie, and the winery next door. The blonde—she was tall and a bit curvy, just the way he liked—kept stealing glances at him while the older woman talked. Her hair was up in a messy bun like she’d just run circles. She had a smooth, angular face with high cheekbones that gave her the look of an old-fashioned pin up with a naughty side. Then again, maybe his imagination was running wild. After all, she wore a pink and black apron that read: Life is Short—Lick the Bowl.

“I’d be happy to. Just show me where it is,” Con said, deepening his voice, as he stared straight at her chest. 

Quinn smacked his arm. “You going to start right away, are you?”

 The innkeeper with the sunken cheekbones gave him dour looks. And they said Americans were friendly.

“I apologize for my brother. He’s shattered and in dire need of a nap. That was completely uncalled for,” he stage-whispered.

“No offense taken.” The young woman smiled cheekily then turned and walked into a small alcove through the dining room. From where Quinn stood, it appeared she was sorting a variety of breakfast quick breads into plastic storage bags. What he would give to try her muffins.
