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 love listening to stories in my car!
It surprises me how many people give the reader crap about her voices, it was easy to tell who was who I didn't think anyone sounded old and haggard! I can't wait to start book 2!
I am an avid Nora Roberts reader.
I cannot get into this story because of the voice. The reader is articulate, but there is something in her voice that makes listening to this title very difficult. It is like she is yelling the story at you. This is a trilogy I am going to have to read and NOT listen to.
Didn't read the print version
Katherine Kellgren did a wonderful job with the character voices and accents. The story really came alive.
This story didn't capture me like most of Nora Robert's books. The Narrator tried to hard.
She tried to hard, was to loud and just didn't make me connect with he story
This was a different sort of story for me, since I'm not usually interested in magical creatures, but the narrator is a favorite from the Rhys Bowen Royal Spyness series, so I thought I'd take a chance. The story and performance both made this audio book a good listen. I will buy the next one in the series.
This was an amazing story! The reader did such a fabulous job of expressing emotion in all that she read. I could picture of myself in this book totally what an amazing story cannot wait for the next one!!!
"Fantastic modern witchy tale"
set in the beautiful County Mayo Katherine Kellgren transports you back to a time of witch craft and famine where a young witch lives the life of a mother as well as a powerful witch but evil is never far away ... centuries later that evil still lingers when the last part of the puzzle comes to mayo in the form of a cousin. Horses, Hawks, dogs and friendships take this tale from a bit of a slushy love story to a pleasant tale which I really enjoyed. It wasn't a taxing listen and fairly light hearted.
The performance completely spoiled the story.
If the reader had been someone who had some idea of an Irish Accent - surely an important element to a story?
No, because I have previously enjoyed READING Nora Roberts and will do so in the future, I hope
"raucus narrator !!!"
The book is a typically good Nora Roberts format,"pure escapism" but is totally spoiled for me, by the narrator .
As a huge fan, my interest is always held by the subjects written about
The narrator shouted aggressively all the way through,completely spoiling any interest I had in the story. Fortunately for me, I also have a hard copy of the book, so I could read, and put my own narrative in my head
I hope new Nora readers are not put off, her books are good and entertaining
"Nice story spoilt by narrator"
I couldn't manage to listen to it due to the terrible "Irish" accents used by the narrator. I tried a few times and eventually gave in, luckily I#ve read the book previously and the other two books in the trilogy use a different narrator so will try them
Awful accent, she would have been better just using her own voice
Stop listening and re-read the book myself
"Terrible drivel, terribly read"
Most of Nora Roberts's fantasy novels seem to be written by formula, and this is no exception. The reader seemed to realise this and was determined to inject some drama into it, with unfortunate results.
Enjoyable story although the ending was a little abrupt - there is obviously a next book in which the drama continues. Overall a good "read".
a brilliant storyline very captivating narrated brilliantly definitely a fantastic buy cannot wait to get to the second book in the series I've loved every minute of the book.
"wonderful completely wonderful ! thank you !!!!"
Whilst working from home this quite short book provides all that is needed to keep me going !!
I felt quite insulted at the sexual embellishment, that this should be considered 'women's fiction '. I struggled to no avail
"A little witchy magic"
light fun enjoyable
all of the twists and turns
excellent reader ..atmospheric
Black Witch ... an unfinished spell
just really enjoyed it
