Deirdre O'Neill was as fiery and spirited as the flames of rebellion that blazed through her beloved Ireland. Summoned home to Dungannon. Castle, the ebony-haired beauty vowed to fight for freedom against the despised English invaders. Then the stormy winds of fortune swept her into the arms of her most dangerous enemy.
