Publisher's Summary

When Clarissa Kelly inherits an Irish castle, there’s only one thing standing in her way - the devilishly handsome man living there.

Ian

Wildheath Castle is rightly mine. No one on earth cares more about that beautiful relic than me. I've been the caretaker for the past five years, and the old man promised he'd leave it to me.

Now, his American granddaughter has come all the way to Ireland to usurp me. But I’ll not let that lass outfox me, no matter how badly I want to press her against the wall and give her a proper welcome.

Clarissa

Right away, I know Ian O'Brien is trouble.

With those flashing eyes as green as the countryside and his nature as hard and unforgiving as the rocky Irish cliffs, the man is intense.

And for some reason, he expects me to just hand over the keys to my birthright. 

Yeah, that’s not happening. Because, where I come from, possession is nine-tenths of the law. So, I'm moving into the castle with him, and I’m not leaving.

American City girl meets Irish country boy

Clarissa inherits her grandfather's castle in Ireland. BUT she didn't know that the handsome caretaker, Ian, inherited it also. One stipulation, they have to get married! This makes it for a fun story. City girl meets Irish country boy. entertaining with Beautiful descriptions of the Irish countryside.
Patricia Santomasso and Sean Patrick Hopkins did a wonderful narration. They both captured the Irish accents and gave each character their own voice and personality

Inheriting a castle with a twist.

This is a very sweet romance. Strong chemistry. Beautiful Ireland. Well written. Entertaining read.
I listened to Audible version of this book. The narrators both did great jobs performing these characters. They both read male and female parts very well. I especially liked the male narrator. His voice is so sexy. They added to my enjoyment.
I voluntarily reviewed a complimentary copy of this book.

Sweet, fun, and Heartwarming Story!

Lucky Inheritance is the fifth book of the Inherit Love Series. Ian and Clarissa's story is sweet, fun, and heartwarming. I loved it! Patricia Santomasso and Sean Patrick Hopkins did a great job with the narration. They both have a beautiful voice, easy to understand. I love their voices together. Looking forward to listen to more books written by Mckenna James, and read by these narrators! #AudiobookObsession

Lucky Inheritance

A sweet story that puts two people you wouldn’t think would fit together perfectly. I loved the twist that brought them together as well as the inner struggles that they had to overcome. Narration is awesome. I loved the Irish accent.

cute and a little cheesy

If you're looking for an easy listen that isn't overloaded with intimate scenes, this is a good choice. We can see where the story is going the entire time but it was still a really cute listen. It has a fairy tale feel to it due to the castle. The characters could have been developed a little more but I was not disappointed by them.

The narrators did a great job!

Lucky Inheritance sets emotions ablaze ....

Hopkins and Satomasso are quite a pair. From heart palpitations to the ever present frustration, they refused to hold back on the chemistry. Their delivery is flameworthy. McKenna James dishes out the emotions with her ever present flair and as always I was easily hooked. Lucky Inheritance sets emotions ablaze with passion, heart and humor.

Romance at an Irish Castle

After 19 years Clarissa returns to Ireland to claim her grandfathers castle. I found her to be self centered and greedy so it was very hard to root for her. Ian is the handyman staying at the castle who was there for her grandfather when she was not. They store is interesting and good despite me not having any respect for Clarissa. Lucy is a breath of fresh air and probably saved the story for me. The dual narration was great

Entertaining.

Lucky Inheritance is the 5th in the Inherit love and it works totally fine without listening to the previous stories. This is my first read in this series and I had no problems.
The was an enjoyable contemporary romance narrated by Patricia Santomasso, Sean Patrick Hopkins whose voice acting really brought the story to life.
I would be happy to have another book by this author and also to listen to more audiobooks narrated by Patricia and Sean.

A Castle For Two

Clarissa finds out that her estranged grandfather has passed away. She flies to another country to find out what happened and what to do with his belongings. There she meets Ian, who's been living at the castle her grandfather owned. They instantly dislike and distrust each other. They were content to find out what was in the will and go their separate ways. Neither of them were prepared to hear the stipulation they were given. They only way they would be able to claim their inheritance is to marry each other. I read this in one sitting. Well listened to it in one sitting would be the more accurate wording for it, but I digress. I find that I really love any stories that have to do with Ireland at all. Especially the ones full of sassy characters. I just can't get enough of a sassy character! I can't even begin to explain that. Ian's sister was my favorite character in the whole book. She was just so vibrant and full of life! She'd be the person you'd just instantly like even if you didn't really warm up to people right away. There were a few tropes in here that I haven't ever cared for. They were eyeroll inducing. They didn't really ruin the story for me. The biggest problem I had was that a conflict kept getting peppered in the story, but it wasn't really fully closed. I kept hoping for a nugget of information in the epilogue, but it wasn't mentioned at all. I was kind of invested in the drama behind it. I wanted to see how it all played out. Well, how it crashed and burned to put it bluntly. This book was narrated by Patricia Santomasso and Sean Patrick Hopkins. They both did a very fantastic job. I do wonder if Hopkins is actually Irish. His accent is very dreamy. Not that I'm going to fixate on that. Much. I feel like Santomasso's voices for both of the leading female characters was pretty amazing. It strikes me how hard it must be for narrators to have conversations between the characters and maintain voices for each one. Both of these narrators did an excellent job with that. I was very impressed. I will listen to other books narrated by them. I thought this was going to be a stupid cheesy romance. Like predictable to the end. I won't lie, in many ways it was. However, it wasn't in a horrible way. It still had its own unique spin that I really enjoyed. I found out that this is book five in a series. I haven't read the first four books. Those who know me know that this is bothering me a little. It is a standalone novel. So I didn't really miss anything by not reading the first four. I'm still going to go back and read them anyway. I may even reread this book in the future.

What lengths would you go to to keep a castle!

If you are going to inherit there are worse things to inherit, even if it is an arranged marriage!
Witty love story with a difference, I enjoyed every second of this listen, thoroughly entertained! Great stand alone book wonderfully written by McKenna James. The Narrators were new to me but i will definitely keep an eye out for them in the future easy A from me!

Clarissa and Ian!

When Clarissa’s Grandfather passes away she heads to Ireland believing that she has inherited the castle that has been in her family for generations only to find out that it has been left to her and Ian and the only way that the castle doesn’t go to charity is if they marry.

Ian has not only been looking after the castle but her Grandfather as well. He moved there to escape the most painful time of his life and found a home and a sense of belonging and isn’t about to just give it up without a fight.

Hot chemistry, great characters with just enough angst to keep things interesting. I received a complimentary copy of the audiobook and thought the narrators were a perfect choice for the story. 🎧 Audiobook Obsession

Standalone Contemporary Romance

Lucky Inheritance by McKenna James is a contemporary romance that I listened to on audio narrated by Patricia Santomasso and Patrick Hopkins.

This is the first book of McKenna’s that I have read and it definitely won’t be my last. I absolutely loved Ian and Clarissa’s story.

Patricia and Sean did an amazing job on the narration. They really know how to bring a story to life. I look forward to listening to more of their projects in the future.

Nice story and pretty good narration

This book was a nice surprise for me, it's my first from this author and narrators alike, but I read the blurb and decided to give it a chance. And I am happy I did.

It was really easy to listen to, the characters are really likeable and the story flows pretty well, with no major drama or angst.

Both narrators where pretty good, I loved their voices, accents, tone and paces, they really did an excellent job. I will look forward more from them both.

Enjoyed it

Lucky Inheritance was a light, easy read and I enjoyed this marriage of convenience story, which was fun and sweet and held my interest from start to finish. I loved the main characters Ian and Clarissa, who had intense chemistry from the start and I enjoyed watching them fall in love. There were a couple of secondary characters who provided great support and balance to this couple and I must mention Ian's sister who added a certain amount off hilarity to the story. The novel was humorous, steamy, emotional and well-written and I would highly recommend it to all lovers of marriage of convenience romance.
The audiobook version was narrated by Patricia Santomasso and Sean Patrick Hopkins. These were two new to me narrators but I enjoyed listening to them. Their voices were clear and understandable and they had great pace and timing. They did an excellent job with the narration adding the Irish accent where needed and it was a pleasure listening to them narrate this novel.

Charming and sweet and beautifully narrated.

I so enjoyed this book. It's a really sweet story, but don't get me wrong there is some stem in there. I love the idea and the setting. Both Patricia Santomasso and Sean Patrick Hopkins handle the accents beautifully, enough to know where in the world you are without it being too overwhelming. They add the extra sparkle to the already charming tale they weave. The story really makes me want to go and see where they are.
