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!

I would. I love Nora Roberts and I'm loving the story. I love any of her books set in Ireland!
Oui! Any narrator would have been better. She was so dramatic about EVERYTHING. This is one I wish I had simply read on my own....and I love audio books!... Its too bad. If she reads the other two I won't be buying them here.
I enjoyed the story but the narrator made it hard to listen. The narrator did a poor job in the sound of the different characters voices. All the Irish people sounded the same.
I don't think I would.
Get a new narrator.
I would recommend this audiobook. It's Nora Roberts, her books always hold your attention.
Try not to compare books, tend to be misleading.
Regarding the narrator: I believe she's getting a bad rap. To some it might seem "over the top" but to me she was rather compelling. I definitely know the difference between a really bad narrator and a narrator that has their own style. I like her style.
I almost didn't select this book because of the above reviews-thankfully I followed my own instincts. Reviews sometimes can do more damage than good.
Iona Sheehan decides to move from the States to Ireland in search of her long lost heritage and find some answers as to why she has magical powers. She learns she's part of a long line of dark witches and the missing link to complete a circle of 3 with her cousins. They need the complete power to defeat a thousand year old witch who's been haunting their dreams and their lives. The story is very good with thrills and chills at every angle but the narrator over exaggerates and I find myself with little headaches throughout the book. I know the story is suppose to be captivating by the powerful spells and magic but calm down narrator and quit blasting my ear drums out...so moat it be! Yes, the book is credit worthy but turn your headphones down and get ready for some overexaggrated narration.
I very much enjoy the odd Nora Roberts book as the stories tend to deliver you into the environment they take place in. I did feel like I was in Ireland and who doesn't like a good love story but this narrator made me feel like every second was the characters last! The intensity of "going to have a pint" was downright distracting! I am looking forward to book two but only if they change narrators!
the narrator was awful! I can honestly say she seriously ruined the book. I have read all of Nora Roberts books and loved them, so I will delete this audio version and read the book. The story is great I wish they would redo it with a different narrator, seriously shouldn't the editors listen to them at all before releasing them? There is a huge difference between reading enthusiastically and hysterical shreiking
Hate the performance. Felt I was 12 years old listening to it. Normally enjoy Nora Roberts but this story and especially the performance were not up to par.
I can't imagine
Not to me
For me this was a very bad choice, I usually love Nora Roberts
I really enjoy listening to Nora Roberts books.... mostly b/c I'm a hopeless romantic, but I can't wait for the remaining books in this series!
The story was very good. Waiting for the second book.
The battles fought against the evil one.
Yes, please get someone else to read the rest of the series. The narrator was too dramatic and listening really wears the story down.
Yes, it needs to follow the story line into at least one or more books.
I've been reading Nora Roberts for years and she just keeps getting better. Change your narrator, please do your fans a big favor.
