Reviews for Irish Kisses

The sexy Irish accents will have you dreaming of your own tall, dark Irishman! ~ Sizzling Hot Books

If you like your stories smooth, stimulating and scrumptious, Irish Kisses is for you!” ~ Kacey Hammell, Erotic Romance Author


These characters are so strongly developed, I could feel their inner workings as I read the story. And the way JoAnne Kenrick wrote Shaun Bell (who is Irish), is amazing. I could literally hear him talking. With the scenes in his bar, I felt like I was right there amongst the crowd. ~ Jessica E. Subject, author of Satin Sheets in Space

This read is for all the ladies who like the heat turned up. It's tantalizing and titillating. Your panties will be bunching! ~ Katrina Whittaker, Page Flipperz Blog

Fast, fun, sexy read! Only 3pm here, but I'm so ready for a Sweet Irish Kiss! ~ Taryn Kincaid, author of the Sleepy Hollow series

Sweet Irish Kiss is an intriguing, sexy, naughty, romantic tale. I was hooked right from the beginning and didn't put it down until I was done. ~ Lucy Felthouse, erotic romance author, and Smut by the Sea editor

Sweet Irish Kiss is my second novella by JoAnne Kenrick. She knows how to write unique, if not quirky, characters that stay with me long after I've finished reading their stories. Keep up the great work Ms. Kenrick! ~ TOP PICK ~ Talina, Night Owl Reviews

Sweet Irish Kiss is a fun, sexy read with strong character voices. ~ Casea Major, author of Night With A Dom


Shamrocked made me laugh, sigh, and fan myself. Devlin is a hot guy and his heroine proves once more that Madame Eve is a master matchmaker. Another Winner in the 1NS series from Decadent Publishing. ~ Jennifer James, author of Love Kinection

Shamrocked is a sexy, fast paced romp that showcases what a uniquely talented author JoAnne Kenrick is. If you haven't tried her, you're missing out on some hot Irish romance! ~ Carrie Ann Ryan, Author of the Bestselling Redwood Pack Series


This story has everything you could want in a romance; hot, sexy bad boy and an equally sexy woman. The sex has some kink which only kicks up the desirability factor. And there are some twists that aren’t usually found in a 1 Night Stand which makes this story even better as well as unique. I love visiting Bell’s and you will too! ~TOP PICK ~ Terri, Night Owl Reviews

Along with the sexy, American restaurateur, Cade this couple sets fire to the pages. Despite bringing a third into their sexual romp Kenrick makes it very clear this is about Todd, and Elizabeth, which impressed me. I really enjoyed this spicy read and I highly recommend it. ~ Shyla, Romancing The Book


Hot Winter Kiss is a great holiday read that will definitely have you wishing for your own hot, young Irish Castle Owner. Fast paced, "awwww" inducing, and believable despite the whimsy and lack of time to get in a full story. ~ Michelle L. Olson, Literal Addiction

Hot Winter Kiss isn't your typical romance. In just a few short pages, Sandra has to face the fact that she may be a grandmother but she’s still a desirable woman, even to someone much younger than herself. Her insecurities only add to the story and help make what could have been an unbelievable match very believable. And, as with all 1 Night Stands, the sex is hot and the ending happy. ~TOP PICK~ Terri, Night Owl Reviews


"A delightfully hot sexy read." ~ Carol LaGatta, a Goodreads reader

A delightful little romp in the amazing Irish Kisses world created by JoAnne Kenrick. Short, but hot, and sweet, too - how can anyone remain angry or contrary with a man as precious as Devlin? Lucky Liz!

You'll love this one, and the only regret you will have will be when the end comes and you go "I want more! ~ Zee Monodee, author of the Island Girls series

An Interview with JoAnne Kenrick
By Holly Hewson for The Romance Studio

HH:  JoAnne, thank you so much for talking with us at TRS. Your featured book is Irish Kisses and is part of the acclaimed 1Night series at Decadent Publishing. First, how did your story come to be part of this series?

JK: Kate, one of the senior editors for the line, emailed me and asked me when I was going to be writing a 1NS story at at the beginning just as readers were learning of Madame Eve and her magical gift at matching unlikely couples. At the time I had just finished writing a short meant for my eyes only. After receiving the request, I immediately pictured my story as a 1NS. I adapted and changed many things, and added the wonderful Madame Eve's agency into the mix. Before I knew it, my 3K story had changed beyond recognition...and was packed with Irish cheek and pub sass and delightful characters that would become an important part of my world for over a year.

HH: What do you like best about the heroine and why will readers relate to her?

JK: Sandra is my favorite heroine of the Irish Kisses series, mainly because she's felt like a sister to me during this whole process. I hope she came across that way to the readers, too. She's so caring, and loves reading romances when she should be working. And that girl knows how to get her pub banter on!

HH: What do you like best about your hero and why will they love him?

JK: Devlin! He was the reason Sweet Irish Kisses became book one in a series. He is a secondary character in the first story I meant as a stand-a-alone. But his cheeky ways won not only my heart but the hearts of readers, too. Emails flooded (well, not flooded but I got more than ten) requesting Devlin have his own story. And so while Shaun is Bell's Irish Pub owner, Devlin owns Irish Kisses.

The ultimate cheeky boy who has many layers. I think he shamrocked me and then some.

HH: What makes the story different from your other works?

JK: The Irish Kisses series is a collection of stories that center around the staff of Bell's Irish Pub in Soho, London, and I wrote it with intentions of making the pub a central character of the stories, along with the wonderful and very tasty cocktails each story is based upon. As the series slogan goes...tasty treats await you. I wanted to wrap the reader in the pub culture, and have them feel as if they are a regular there and leaving their short stay with a sense of connection to the place and the characters serving the yummies.

HH: What did you enjoy most about writing this story?

JK: Creating all the wonderful drinks and trying them out to be sure they were as tasty as they sound. No, really, I loved getting to know the characters the most. Like I said, Sandra felt like a sister to me. It was a sad day when I finished the last story in the series, like saying goodbye to dear friends. But... it's not the end of some of the characters. I'm working on a spin-off series as we speak. But it won't be a 1NS series.

HH: What else do you have in store for lucky readers?

JK: Seal the Deal kick starts my new series with Decadent Publishing, and that releases around November. It's book one in the Isle of Man and Selkie trilogy, and is my first shifter story. I can't wait for readers to meet Finn Kneale who is as cute as he is full of prowl.

Also, Outback Dirty releases in January, which is a part of a very exciting multi-author project with Decadent Publishing. The details are yet to be released so I can't spill the beans yet. But take my word for it when I say... HUBBA HUBBA.

There's many other projects and stories on the go, too many to mention here. Let's just say I'm keeping busy.

HH: Where do you draw inspiration from?

JK: My travels and my heritage. I'm from North Wales but have lived in Scotland, England, and Australia. I now live in North Carolina. Inspiration can be found in every moment of every day. It's all around me, but I do love using British or Australian settings... I think maybe it's like revisiting an old friend for me. Like going on holiday without leaving the Southern comforts of North Carolina. One of these days, I'll have to write some NC stories.

HH: What's your writing schedule like?

JK: I try to write between 9am and 2pm. That's my most productive time, when my creativity is at its best. Any later than 2 and my enthusiasm lacks. So I switch to Mum duties at that time. And before 9am, forget about it. I'm a slow starter.

HH: Where can readers find you online?

JK: I'm everywhere

HH: What's your favorite place to hang out online?


An amazing bunch of authors who blog about writing and the such like. Yes, I am lucky (very lucky) to be a Diamond Author.

HH: Thank you!
