Publisher's Summary

Mia Devlin knows what it is like to love with your whole heart - and then watch your love walk away. Years ago, she and Sam Logan shared an incredible bond built on passion, legend, and fate. But then one day he fled Three Sisters Island, leaving her lost in memories of the magic they shared - and determined to live without love.

The new owner of the island's only hotel, Sam, has returned to Three Sisters with hopes of winning back Mia's affections. He is puzzled when she greets him with icy indifference - for the chemistry between them is still sizzling and true.

Angry, hurt, and deeply confused, Mia refuses to admit that a passion for Sam still burns in her heart. But she'll need his help - and his powers - to face her greatest, most terrifying challenge. And as the deadline for breaking a centuries-old curse draws near, they must take the first steps toward destiny - and come together to turn back the dark.

Listen to the other books in this trilogy, including Book 1, Dance Upon the Air; and Book 2, Heaven and Earth.

What the Critics Say

"Well written and well crafted....Sandra Burr creates subtly different voices and accents for the different characters. Her pacing is excellent, and she conveys just the right amount of expression and emotion to make listening a light and thoroughly enjoyable experience." (AudioFile)

    "Great Story but Some Character Flaws"

    I loved this series. But the character Ripley on occasion throughout the series is a bit childish for a 30 year old woman. Other than that the story is perfect.

    This story is the perfect ending to the series where you see Mia come full circle and it slowly builds. I think the fight peak or crescendo could have been longer and more complicated however.

    Voice over is perfect.

    "The ultimate ending!"

    Mia makes one want to go work at Cafe Book just so that you can learn from her and take in her learnings.

    The 3 together are a force to recon with - if only love and romance were this easy!

    Nora Roberts makes you want to read only trilogies so that you can get into the lives of the charaters.

    if only this were real! i'd move in a flash!

    Wonderfully writted, wonderfully read!

    Thank you fro your insight and research and thank you for making them audible!

    Story
    "Abusive Man Wins?"

    In book 1, and a major premise of book 2, we are faced with Evil in the form of an abusive husband. One who forced his wife to fake her own death rather than continue a potentially deadly relationship.

    In book 3, we are asked to put aside an equally abusive man, one who may or may not have had good reasons to destroy the woman who loved him [Don't all abusive men have excuses for the things they do to their loved ones?] and have pity on the individual, who, after all, was only doing what he had to do. The fact that he destroyed the life of one woman is a shame, but, "The ending always justifies the means, doesn't it?"

    I say - garbage stinks, no mater how much perfume you apply to it. Love is not always the answer and rejection of abuse, in all forms, must stand. This is the flaw in the series and in book 3. Nora Roberts, of all people, should have seen it coming.

    I have to give the story One Star. No matter she resolved the storyline in the end, the people involved, should NEVER have made the choices they did in book 3 if the lessons learned in book 1 and 2 were even slightly real to the author.

    "Don't end."

    I got totally wrapped up in the trilogy and did not want it to end. I wanted a fourth book. The characters were so vivid in my imagination.
    Bravo to you Nora Roberts you kept my interest in every word.

    "a great book"

    I really liked the book and the characters. but how does Nora Roberts write a character named Mac Book and there are no jokes about it?
    are his and Ripley's children going to be named I-Pod and I-Pad?

    Story
    "DNF: Whiny h and narrator"

    I've listened to other Nora Roberts books and other books with this narrator, but this was a perfect storm of a bad book. The heroine seems whiny; the narrator does a great job of communicating the whining, but it's not something I want to listen to (I've got co-workers if I want to hear hours of whining). After a few chapters, I gave up.

    The interaction between the heroine and hero is weird. They go back and forth between liking each other and then not, but the interplay is more about the h pouting and the H asking what he did wrong. The emotional part of the novel would have been more appropriate in a high school or NA novel.

    "Two Trilogies – Same Story, Different Guise"

    My taste in Nora Roberts novels runs to those with a magical bent. So it is not surprising that I have recently read the Three Sisters Island and Cousins O'Dwyer series back to back.

    What strikes me is the similarity of the three main female characters in each trilogy. The protagonist in each of the first books is a petite blonde - Nell in Three Sisters and Iona in the O'Dwyer novel. Both start out as timid pixies, who develop a strong back bone as the story evolves. The second book focuses on two women who are completely opposite of Nell and Iona. Ripley, a brunette and Meara, a red head both have a fiery temper and will of steel. Their challenge in the story is to develop maturity and restraint.

    The third book brings the two characters I most enjoy-the black haired beauties Mia and Branna. Of the three pairs, these two women are the “old souls” of the group. They provide grounding around which the other characters operate.

    The plot is almost the same in the two series as well. Each woman finds or reunites with a mate and the three couples form a group to battle a centuries old evil force that threatens to destroy them. The group, of course, prevails and “all is well that ends well.”

    I have enjoyed both trilogies even though they are the same story in a different guise. If you have read and liked one of these series, the other will likely please you unless you are bothered by the similarity of them.

    "It's Nora"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Just to predictable no twist.


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

    Not one of her best series


    Which character – as performed by Sandra Burr – was your favorite?

    I liked them all. Each had their place


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No

    "Could have been better"

    Mia's story was just not as engaging as Nell and Ripley. Wish there was an epilogue. Worth a listen to wrap up the trilogy, but it doesn't live up to its predecessors.
