Nora Roberts has just recently became one of my favorite authors. This is a wonderful 3-in-1. There's lots of humer,tifs,great music,knew frinedships and lots of love with a little faerie magic. If you haven't read this book it' a must
These are all three of the Irish trilogy in one hardback book. Local legen tells of a faerie prince destined to be parted from his lady, until three couples find their own true loves. Join Aidan, Shawn and Darcy Gallagher as they explore the depths of their fiery hearts and set out to find their soul mates.
Reading this book was a guilty pleasure for me. I do not normally turn to romance novels, but this magic realism trilogy set in modern-day Ireland was a delight. A very fast read, the story revolves around a single family that operates a pub in an Irish beach town and the ghost who is a victim of a 300-year old curse. Have fun and indulge yourself in the story! Recommended.
Wow! Three of Nora Roberts books together in a beautiful hardbook edition!
The write-ups of the stories are:
1. Jewels of the Sun: "Professor Jude Murray is writing a paper on Celtic forklore, so she journeys to Ardmore where she meets sexy pub owner Aidan Gallagher. Jude quickly discovers Aidan is more than willing to share the legends of his land--and the love in his heart."
2. Tears of the Moon: "Tells of feisty Brenna O'Tolle, who has loved Shawn Gallaher since they were children. And she's sure Shawn loves her too; he just doesn't know it. So Brenna is determined that he stop dreaming his life away and finally see her as the woman of his dreams."
3. Heart of the Sea: "Darcy Gallagher beleves in the pull of fate, the magic of Irish legend...and the importance of money. Will Trevor Magee make her believe in the power of love?"
Nora Roberts is my absolute favorite romance author and even though I can predict her endings and so one it never takes away from the joy of reading her. If you enjoy folklore and the Irish way of speaking then you will enjoy this book. She had never let me down and this one is no exception.
Very meh from Roberts. Obviously you keep reading them knowing how they're going to end, but this felt sort of anti-climactic. Her later trilogies with magic and fairies are more well-written and have better characters.
Three excellent Irish love stories. Roberts' storytelling really brings you to Ireland and its magic, music and myth. In each of these 3 stories she weaves the tale of finding true love for each of the Gallagher siblings who run the local pub. In may be that little bit of Irish in me that had me believing in faerie princes, magic and Irish legends.
