Distraction soon arrives in the handsome form of MacAllister Booke - a researcher who's come to investigate the rumors of witchcraft that haunt Three Sisters Island. Right from the start, he knows there's something extraordinary about Ripley Todd. It's not just her blazing green eyes and her sultry smile. There's something else. Something he can detect, but she'll never admit. Fascinated by her struggle with her amazing abilities, he becomes determined to help her accept who she is - and find the courage to open her heart.
But before Ripley and Mac can dream of what lies in the future, they must confront the pain of the past. For Three Sisters shelters centuries of secrets - and a legacy of danger that plagues them still.

"A storytelling wizard." (Publishers Weekly)
Great plot, kept my interest and when listening to this saga, you should listen to them in order.Again, a bit over the top on the drawn out sex, not a good book to listen too with kids around.
I love witty, fast-paced books that keep you turning the page.
I've been looking for an author who can make me laugh while also weave a tale that I can't guess the ending to. So far in this series, Nora Roberts is it! I really enjoyed the first several books in Stephanie Plum series and in the Kinsey Milhone series, but the latter has really lost my interest as the author has changed her writing style. This series by Nora Roberts is fun and interesting with just enough romance to to make it feel like a guilty pleasure. I find myself sitting in the car because I don't want to stop listening. Her character development is rich but not long-winded. Great, fun series!
Don't let this be the first of the series that you will read. Best to read them in order so you have background information and a foundatin for understanding the stories. Good variation on a common theme of witch craft and black magic. Entertaining enough to be a movie or a brief television series. Good mystery, characterization and narration.
I couldn't get enough of book 1. I was actually pretty sad it wasn't longer. The sister that this book was based on just wasn't as interesting or as easy to relate to, so I spent most of the time zoning out.
I love Nora Roberts writings, and was excited to realize that my new iPod provided me with the opportunity to listen to her books on audio while I do household chores, etc. Mutli-talking at it's finest! And while I've loved my very first audio book experience, I've been very dissappointed with the narration. Sandra Burr has a very clear voice, but her inflections are rediculous. I will try to avoid her narrations in the future and can only hope that my subsequent experiences will be better than this one.
I read so I can write
I stayed up all night listening to this book. That is rare for me, but this was one I couldn't put down. The first book in this series was great and the whole mystery caught my interest. In this book the characters I already liked grew in stature and the addition of the loveable professor was fantastic. Who couldn't love a brilliant geek with a hard body who looks sexy in glasses.
After a nap I'm off to book three.
It was so predictable that 3 books out I can't remember much of the story. I suppose it is a good romance novel. I'm not much into romance novels
