From number-one New York Times best-selling author Nora Roberts comes a trilogy about the land we’re drawn to, the family we learn to cherish, and the people we long to love.…
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 horsemen, 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.…
Don’t miss the next two books in the Cousins O’Dwyer Trilogy!

To read not to listen. I grinned and bared the narrator. This is the first Nora Roberts book I've listened to or read. The story was sadly a bit predictable.
Absolutely, but I've read the reviews on the next 2 books and the narrators look to be equally as awful.
No. The story line was great but the narration over overdone in my opinion. Accentabwere so thick at times it was hard to discern what was being said.
Great book. But again the impact was lost by the narration
I love Nora Roberts but I coan not stand this narrator. I will read the book.
I listen to books at work, but this one, due to the narration, kept me on edge, but not in a good way. I've read the book, so I know the story, but only to chapter 2 and I dont know if I can keep up with this narrator. She makes Sorrca sound like an old woman; I know she is sick, but...I havent looked to see if she narrates the others, but if she does, I might have to pass on the rest.
Say something about yourself!
Both the story and the narration. I almost didn't buy it, and am glad I didn't listen to the reviews about the bad narrator. I LOVED the passion and intensity in the narration, and don't believe it would be as completely 'felt' without it. It was magic.
The strength, thoroughly thought out plot and depth that seems to be in every Nora Roberts book I listen to.
All. It wasn't her different character tones that got me though, it was the thorough emotional journey her narration took me on. I was really affected.
Not particularly, I loved the entire thing from start to finish.
I am looking forward to experiencing book number 2 :) xo
THIS IS A GREAT BOOK ABOUT FANTASY AND WITCHES
MY FAVORITE CHARACTER IN THIS BOOK HAS TO BE CONNER FOR THE CARE HE TAKES OF HIS SISTER AND THE NEW FOUND COUSIN FROM THE STATES
I REALLY LIKE THE WAY SHE PORTAITED TEGANS GREAT GRANDAUGHTER
NOT ONLY DID I LISTEN TO IT ALL IN ONE SITTING IT KEPT ME AWAKE WHILE I WAS DRIVING
The book was great, but I would rather read it than listen to it again... The lady reading the book is seriously intense and basically screams through the entire book. I can't even count how many times it almost threw me into a mild panic. It was very over the top on the delivery of the book.
It reminded me a little of the Three Sisters Island series, but I loved it.
Anyone else! She was great with the characters, but the screaming... eeesh.
Yes.... with the exception of my blood pressure.
Great book. Love Nora Roberts. Crazy lady narrator.
didn't like it, thought it was boring. just not the kind of story for me I guess.
The story is not bad (not good either) but I could deal with it if the narrator had been better. A good narration can make or break a story.
Focus more on the magic elements and the conflict. Who cares about the romance!!
She was terrible!!!!
Will be returning this book. I could not even finish it. It was terrible!!!
Yes to Nora Roberts, no to Katherine Kellgren. It just happened that this is the second audio in a row I have listened to that she has narrated and her voice is so sharp and sounds so angry it takes me out of the story itself. The main character in this book sounded as if she was about to have a nervous breakdown most of the time. However, the other characters voices were wonderful so I am not sure what to say why the narration is so off putting, yet the dialog for all but the main character were fine.
Poorly. See above.
Yes. Check to see who the narrator was for the second book, which I had already purchased.
I was disappointed in the story somewhat. Once the awesome opening of the story was complete, setting up the story itself, It seemed to drag but that could be because I felt the narrator was reprimanding me for some reason and who wants that.
