Summary:

With indifferent parents, Iona Sheehan grew up craving devotion and acceptance. From her maternal grandmother, she learned where to find both: a land of lush forests, dazzling lakes, and centuries-old legends. Ireland. County Mayo, to be exact. Where her ancestors’ blood and magic have flowed through generations — and where her destiny awaits. Iona arrives in Ireland with nothing but her Nan’s directions, an unfailingly optimistic attitude, and an innate talent with horses. Not far from the luxurious castle where she is spending a week, she finds her cousins, Branna and Connor O’Dwyer. And since family is family, they invite her into their home and their lives. When Iona lands a job at the local stables, she meets the owner, Boyle McGrath. Cowboy, pirate, wild tribal horseman, he’s three of her biggest fantasy weaknesses all in one big, bold package. Iona realizes that here she can make a home for herself — and live her life as she wants, even if that means falling head over heels for Boyle. But nothing is as it seems. An ancient evil has wound its way around Iona’s family tree and must be defeated. Family and friends will fight with each other and for each other to keep the promise of hope — and love — alive…

    I loved the story, the characters and the narrator. Yes at times the narrator raised her voice but only during times when casting spells and at those times there was high emotion, or fear so it felt like you were there in the moment. I do enjoy Nora Roberts' trilogies they are an easy read and yes, a happy ending.

    I am not a big Nora Roberts fan but thought I'd give this book a try. I have a lot of mixed feeling about this book. I feel like she repeated herselve several times though the book.. I food myself wishing it would just move on cause we all ready new that. The very beginning of the book as she is setting up the past takes way to long and I almost stopped reading. Yet at the say time when I got to the end I was interested to know what was going to happen and found myself wishign the second book was out. I did like the Characters and I feel like Nora did a great job giving them the charatariscs she did. Not sure if I will read the second book or not, but I'd like to know where the love of the two main characters goes. Narration was okay. It wasn't my favorite but I have heard worse.

    I loved the story and the narration. Having just come home from a tour of Ireland and visiting many places named in the book was wonderful and I thought the Irish accent was charming and warm. The loudness of the narrator at times was appropriate for the intensity of the scene and made me feel the energy! Will definitely need to give a listen to the other 2 in the series!

    I loved the book. I really do not care for the narrator though.

  • Barbara Howell

    I seem to be in the minority. I loved the narration, and thought the Irish accent was charming. The boldness (and loudness) of the narrator was appropriate for the intensity of the narrative and made me feel the moments! I loved the intertwining of the horses and hawks and could most smell the fresh forest. I am a longtime Roberts fan and continue to read her because I am very comfortable with her style.

    I could not finish this book. I felt that the narrator was yelling at me. Very uncomfortable .... story so so

  • Angelia McLean

    Good story, follows the Nora Roberts pattern of everyone is family, all the women get along and they live happily ever after. (Sorry, cynical but Roberts gets a little tiresome in her unrealistic relationship dynamics). The narrator needed to tone it down though as I had to lower the volume all the time when she was yelling the spells and dramatic moments.

  • Amanda Perry

    Typical Nora Roberts book. Entertaining and worth listening to. The narrator on the other hand is horrible half the time she's yelling the other half she's using horrible Irish accents.
