Publisher's Summary

Maggie Concannon is a glassmaker whose exquisite works are more than mere objects of beauty: they are reflections of her own true nature. One man has seen the soul in her art, and vows to help this complex woman build a lucrative career.

When gallery owner Rogan Sweeney comes to Maggie's isolated studio, her heart is enflamed by their fierce attraction - and her scarred past is slowly healed by a gentle and forgiving love.

What the Critics Say

"The conflicts Maggie and Rogan face are refreshingly realistic and the characters themselves, well-rounded and likable, will keep readers engaged." (Publishers Weekly)
"A light, fast-paced novel set in the Irish countryside." (School Library Journal)

    "Utterly Captivating!"
    Any additional comments?

    HUGE fan of Ms Roberts work, and I adored listening to this wonderful narrator, Fiarce Douglas, who brought the story to life. Tis an old favorite this trilogy, as wild and winsome, as human and indelible as the scenery, the land, and the people of the Emerald Isle.
    As ever, I was captivated from the first words to the last... Thank you ;)

    "Born In Fire"

    I loved this book and also Born In Ice. You need to listen to both books to really get the meaning. Good Job.

    "not what i have come to expect"

    Maybe my expectations were too high but i truly didn't enjoy this book as i have the others.

    was it the narator, was it the book? I just don't know.

    Humourous, but not a book I would recommend to read

    "Great book"

    I really loved this book, but I wish they offered the third book in this series Born in Shame. I might have to look elsewhere to purchase it.

    "Narrator destroys story"

    Couldn't get in to this story. Narrator had a hard time depicting the emotion the author wanted to convey. The accent seems strained and overly masculine. I don't think I will finish this book unless I purchase a copy and read it my self. I will preview before purchase next time!

    "Performance"
    What aspect of Fiacre Douglas’s performance would you have changed?

    Slow down a little Fiacre... tried listening to it at 75% that didn't work. Read so fast.

    "Annoying narrator"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Perhaps a written copy.


    What didn’t you like about Fiacre Douglas’s performance?

    The narrator rushed through, with halting quality to his performance. When I tried to slow it down, the next slowest speed was too slow. It was quite irritating.

    "Narrator was too quick"
    Would you listen to another book narrated by Fiacre Douglas?

    I really hope Nora does not choose him to read for her anymore, he is too fast,in a hurry, and no emotions don't like him

    "Slow it down!"
    What made the experience of listening to Born in Fire the most enjoyable?

    A good simple story, true to Nora Roberts classic


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Narration and audio too fast.. technical??? slowed it down to half speed and it was better


    Any additional comments?

    If you have the ability, like on an Ipod.. slow it down to half speed. Then I could understand it
