Publisher's Summary

Darcy Gallagher has always believed in the pull of fate, the magic of legend...and the importance of money. She longs to find a rich man who will sweep her away - into a world filled with glamour and adventure, and the exotic life that is her destiny.

A wealthy businessman with Irish blood, Trevor Magee has come to Ardmore to build a theater - and uncover secrets hidden in his family's past. He thought he had given up on love long ago, but Darcy Gallagher tempts him like no woman ever has. She's gorgeous, intelligent, and she knows what she wants - and he's more than willing to give it to her.

But as their mutual attraction flares into passion, they look into their hearts - and find out what happens when you truly believe.

Emerald Isle: listen to the rest of the Irish Jewels trilogy.

    "Don't Bother"

    While the story has some merit, the narrator is so bad as to very description. A third grader could have done better. A total waste of my time and money.

    "a love story with lots of backstories"

    Narrator was great, whole trilogy is worthwhile if you enjoy just a hint of magic in a series about women in love in Ireland surrounding an Irish pub and its legends.

    "this book makes me tear up every time!"

    Everything about this series just really fills you with love and joy in the truest sense. I teared up more times than I can count and cried unabashedly. This was the first time I had listened to the series on Audible and I have to say that it really brought the story to a whole new level. I've read this series twice, and listened to it once. I loved it just as much this time as i did the first time I read The Gallaghers of Ardmore series.

    "Loved it!"

    I absolutely loved this trilogy! The way Nora describes the beautiful Irish countryside and with the narrator's excellent Irish accent made me feel like i was in Ireland for a holiday. Each book is definitely worth the credit. Someone rated the 3rd book as "boring" and "didn't even finish it" - which review nearly had me not buying the last book. But i am so glad i did as it was definitely not boring and i loved every second of it!

    Story
    "Gotta love those Irish"
    Where does Heart of the Sea rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I just finished listening to the trilogy. The beginning all the way to the end....A good read. This last book ties up the loose ends very well. The introduction and development of the characters was spell binding.


    What did you like best about this story?

    My favorite aspect of the stories was the Irish country, the magic,and the reader's speech . I could hardly wait to listen.


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

    Patricia Daniels made the story be real. I laughed out loud several times.

    Story
    "A great trilogy"
    Would you listen to Heart of the Sea again? Why?

    I would listen to this story again - I would listen to the trilogy again. I've already started. I love the pictures of Ireland that they paint and it's folklore. I want to visit the places mentioned in the book. I want to sit in the new music hall and listen to the music.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Heart of the Sea?

    The picture painted by the description of how the new Music Hall will blend with the old Tavern. It made me want to visit there.


    Have you listened to any of Patricia Daniels’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've only heard her in this series, but she did an excellent job.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, I didnt want to stop listening, but if I don't stop listening when I'm driving, I run out of storoes to listen to. For the second read, I listened while I sewed! :)

    "Another Winner"

    I loved this series. Nora Roberts is my favorite. This is a charming story and makes me long to visit Ireland and feel its magic. Sweet romance novel. The narrator was great and did a fine Irish accent.

    Story
    "Heart of the Sea"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Heart of the Sea to be better than the print version?

    I did not read the print version but I would assume so.. listening to a story about the Irish with someone reading it with the Irish accent adds to the story.


    Any additional comments?

    I was sad when the series was over, I loved listening to Irish having Irish background my self. Feeling like old friends who are now gone .

    "wont stop me from trying again"

    As romances go, it had all the requirements, with a little fairy magic thrown in, however, the reader was American and tried to do and Irish accent, being Irish, it made me cringe, it was as bad as Dick Van Dikes cockney in Mary Poppins. She also once got her American and Irish people mixed up. I had to stop listening. I may go back to it later on but for now........
