Publisher's Summary

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!

    Story
    "Best of the whole series"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    Not particularly. Already the storyline gets repetitive, and though it's fiction; this girl gets everything right off the bat. Come on.


    If you’ve listened to books by Nora Roberts before, how does this one compare?

    Par for the course. Boring.


    What does Katherine Kellgren bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    She adds more life to a dead plot.


    Did Dark Witch inspire you to do anything?

    Avoid Nora Roberts.

    "Exciting"

    Fun to listen too and it's romance with a little kick. The breathless excitement gets a bit tiring again it's romance.

    Story
    "needed to regulate sound"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    not necessarily as the narrator ruined my concentration and I am sure effected my involvement with the story line


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    fairly predictable


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Katherine Kellgren?

    Anyone else but her. Nothing personal but she did not have the ability to modulate her vocals

    "Great book -- terrible narrator"

    The story was exciting and fun for a fantasy novel, but the narrator emphasized a lot of the phrasing bizarrely.

    If you're someone who has a hard time getting into the story because of a bad narrator, I'd probably pass this one. Otherwise, I'd listen to it again!

    Story
    "Narrator was capable, but Irish accents too arch."

    Love Nora Roberts and most of her Irish trilogies. However, this narrator was less capable than her more prolific narrator, Susan Erickson, which impacted my ability to enjoy the audio story nuances without performance distractions.

    "Love it!!"

    an exciting story can't wait to listen to the other books although the story line resembled her other trilogy fire ice and shame which I loved. The narrator did an excellent job of delivering the story you felt the thrill and excitement . could stop listening until I finished the book.
