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!

Attention-grabbing, captivating, fascinating
My favorite character is Fin. He is fascinating, and intriguing. There are so many shadows and questions about his and Branna’s past. I can’t wait to read more about him.
She was very overpowering. She seemed to think everything was exciting enough to yell, in fact she spent most of the book yelling. It was very annoying to have every sentence slowly get louder until she was screaming. Then go back to a normal voice just to build up to a scream again.
When Fiona was fighting the wolf in the stables.
Other than the performance there is nothing I didn’t like about this book. It’s a wonderful story and I can’t wait to read the rest of the trilogy.
Thought the book was great and the narrator was great too! Hoping to love the next 2 books as much as this one.
A solid plot, not one sex driven!
Some of her Irish trilogy's are well written.
She enunciates the Irish dialect very well.
I liked all of the characters, it is the story line which I found redundant!
I'm struggling to listen to this, I have to keep replaying to understand whats happening.
The narrator gets too loud and screeches for excitement/dramatic effect. Lost me a few times when the story moves into dream 'mode'.
Forcing myself to finish listening, which is not my 'norm' for a Nora Roberts
I can't tell if I like the story or not. I'm almost finished with the book and can't wait for it to end due to the narration. This woman should not be narrating audiobooks. She is so over the top it completely ruins the story. She wears me out!
Chosen a different narrator.
Under no circumstances.
I can't wait for this book to be over. I'm tempted to buy the book on kindle just to stop listening to this narrator and finish the story. 2 more hours to go.
know what is a good book
A different narrater would have really made this book. I was so disappointed in the narration that I even returned this book. Ms Roberts, please find someone else to narrate, because this looked like such a good trilogy.
not this trilogy and not this narrater. Sorry ms.Kellgren
For some reason she was shouting all the witches dialog, even when it didnt call for it. Unless the irish folks slways shout at each other. Way tooooo much drama.
I was really excited about a new Norah Roberts trilogy, but will by pass the others if she has this same person narrating.
Nora Roberts, yes. Narrator Katherine Kellgren, absolutely not! She's a human blow horn!
The horses. Love horses.
Use a different narrator. She'd be great on the stage and wouldn't need a microphone. She also gets way too excited when the scene really doesn't warrant it. I made it through the whole thing because I liked the story. Very relieved to see a different narrator is used for the next book in the series.
Yes, to go on vacation to a castle.
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.
My least favorite in this series but story line is fair. I think I would have enjoyed it more if I would have read it. Narrator is SO LOUD and ALL the women except for Iona sound like old grannies. The men except for Conner sound weird too.
Different narrator would have made all the difference here
