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.

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.

    "There's some insta-love"
    Any additional comments?

    Narration - Fiacre Douglas - Really Good

    Just re-read/listened to this one because I finally got the second one in the trilogy and needed a reminder.

    She's an artist and he's an art dealer and I loved that her art was glassblowing. I also really enjoyed the way Nora provided the details of her creative experience. I don't know enough about glassblowing to know if her technical specs were accurate or not, but I bought it.

    I'm also enjoying the family and the relationship twists and turns between Maggie, her father, Brianna and that crabby old mom of theirs.

    This is a little more insta-love than I like with the declaration that they're going to 'bed the other' coming pretty early on and kind of out of the blue in the whole getting to know each other part of their relationship. Would you like a coffee? and by the way, I'm going to sleep with you. Meh, but other than that, I really enjoyed it.

    That is all!

    "one of nora's best!"

    would go to sleep reading listening to it.
    the plot is different, and the treatment is creative.
    Performance is brilliant. love the deep accent, and the lilt. the accent placed on the parts of speech is so much different from, say, U.S, Maine, or other parts of the country. have listened to it 4 times, and after a while I'll hear it again.

    Story
    "Will This Fiery Irish Artist Find Love?"

    You can be in Claire, Dublin, even Paris, but wherever you go, there you are: your past, your baggage. You can have a picture perfect lover and still not get around the barriers to real love. This is not a confectioner's treat of a novel. Sure it's fun, but it is also touches on some very real issues we all face and deals with them with refreshing grace and clarity.

    Any additional comments?

    I thoroughly enjoyed this book. At first I wasn't going to buy the series because of all the comments regarding the narration, but the sample was fine by me - so I went ahead, and am very happy I did. I loved the narration with an irish accent - and every part of the way he told the story. I love the way Nora Roberts writes, she always leaves you with knowledge to walk away with - I love that.
