#MusicMonday with Magan Vernon


The complete playlist for the Murphy Brothers series


  • Ed Sheeran – Galway Girl – There’s a lot of Ed Sheeran inspiration for the books. Mainly because he’s Irish and writes about Ireland

  • Metallica Whiskey in The Jar – When I was looking up Irish songs, this was one of the first ones that came up. For a modern and vintage version. It’s addressed quite a few times with Fallon and Connor.

  • Ireland’s Call – The Ireland rugby song that you’ll listen to once and then have in your head forever. Just google any ‘Ireland rugby’ and it’ll come up.

  • Ed Sheeran Castle on The Hill – There’s something about Ed’s voice and the way he belts out these words that can inspire any scene.

  • XAmbassadors – Unsteady – There were a lot of shaky moments for the couple’s in this book and every time I had to go through a rough scene, this would play.

  • Ariana Grande – God is a Woman – I loved the powerful words of this song and may or may not have been a little obsessed watching Pete and Ariana’s relationship while writing the first two Murphy books.

  • Gnash – I hate you, I love you – This helped with the characters real push and pull of each of their relationships.

  • Niall Horan – This Town – There’s something about an Irish boybander that gets me every time. And it doesn’t hurt that Niall may have the prettiest eyes to stare at forever as I watch the video then think about those Murphy Brothers.

  • Shawn Mendes – Mercy – Shawn has this boyish yet sexy charm that helped to inspire some of the Murphy brothers’ funnier moments.



Pick up Dirty Irish by Magan Vernon today!


My life has revolved around the two things I’ve always loved: whiskey and rugby. Now the marriage clause in my Da’s will has me putting both on the back burner if I want to save the Murphy’s Pub empire and find a wife.

As the last brother to get married, I need a little help, and that’s where my sister-in-law’s American best friend, Leah, comes into the picture. She could use a little Irish luck after the deceitful things her ex did to her that brought her to Ireland. With her take-no-shite-attitude, she’s just the type of girl to help me find a wife.

That is, if I can remember she’s the matchmaker and not the match.
