𝐄𝐲𝐫𝐞 decides she’s had enough and jumps on the first appealing flight, landing her in the heart of Ireland. As she looks out from the Cliffs of Moher, she thinks about how much her Crohn’s and Endometriosis have forced her to give up in life.
𝐃𝐚𝐫𝐛𝐲, definitely not to be confused with Jane Austen’s Mr. Darcy, is a cynical and jaded Irishman who doesn’t get emotionally involved–a true grump. His bad boy persona doesn’t allow for second dates and definitely not cuddling. While giving a tour, he spots a woman dangerously close to the edge of the cliffs, and he’s drawn to her.
But everything’s about to change for both of them. Darby collects Eyre as part of his tour group and decides to show her the heart of Ireland, and in doing so, shows her how much heart she still has left in herself.
However, Darby has his own demons to face–invisible ones that he battles every day. With the help of a curmudgeonly older Irish man, a quirky border collie, and a fiery yet grandmotherly bartender, these two wounded souls start to let each other into their hearts. But is the healing power of Ireland enough to help open a guarded heart? And is love enough to face the demons a scarred soul has been trying to outrun for so long?
This is the second standalone novel in the International Soulmates Series. The Irish Fall is a sweet romance for clean and wholesome romance readers from the author of The Paris Soulmate. Travel to the colorful and charming village of Doolin, Ireland, in this Irish romance. Readers are laughing, crying, and falling in love with these characters. And hopefully, if you have a chronic illness, you will feel seen.
This novel features in her “own voice” esophageal Crohn’s, arthritic pain from Crohn’s, chronic pain, migraines, mental health and female issues. This disability representation is written by an author who also battles these disorders. Endometriosis and other mental health are represented in this novel as well.
This is a clean novel. Descriptive kissing only. No cursing. Faith conversations included. Trigger warnings: mild medical episodes, panic attacks, discussions of infertility, discussions of suicidal thoughts.

Brooke Gilbert is a Tennessee native, a microbiology graduate of the University of Tennessee, and a border collie mom. She is, as you may have already guessed, a hopeless romantic and a lover of Jane Austen. When she isn’t writing, she works as a jewelry designer, an audiobook narrator, and a graphic designer. Her writing features characters with autoimmune disorders, something she deals with herself. She believes it is important for these types of characters to be seen in modern literature and started writing so she could see someone like herself in literature. She is considered a medical mystery and has several rare autoimmune disorders. These disorders caused her to withdraw from Physician Assistant School, but she is happy to be pursuing her dreams of designing, creating, and writing. She thanks God for leading her heart on this new path and recites “perhaps this is the moment for which you were created” in times of doubt (Esther 4:14).
She loves watching classic ﬁlms (thrillers and romantic comedies, too), reading, playing the ukulele, painting, dancing, Pilates, and spending time with her dog, family, and friends. One of her favorite quotes is from Flashdance: “When you give up on your dreams, you die.” She believes that if you’re waiting to pursue your dreams, stop waiting and start doing. Your time is now. And may you never stop being a hopeless romantic. Contrary to popular belief, it’s a very good quality. She’s still looking for her Mr. Darcy.
