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)
Just finnished the second book in this addictive trilogy. I absolutely loved how she develops her charachters and you really feel like you know them, or would know them just walking down the street. I can't wait to get started on the final book. (Sad sigh) Wish there were more in the series. One little tiny word of negative. I realize that the ending of a book is traditionally the climax and all that stuff, but listening to it, you are pumped up for that final battle, and poof, it's gone. She gives such vivid detail with everything else, the loves scenes were much longer than the "battle". It could have been draged out a bit. Maybe in the next book it will.
Yes. This second installment to the 3 sisters story was much better than the first. Better character development and more information to the storyline. The pace of the plot was better too.
I like Sandra Burr's voice but she's not the best at differentiating characters. Some she does well but others you do need the “he said”, “she said” to figure out who is talking.
I like the way Roberts makes her fantasy worlds seem perfectly real and believable.
Say something about yourself!
this is my favorite trilogy-the characters are wonderful and the story is fascinating
The magical parts.
all of them.
Great-keep them coming.
Ripley makes one realise that even being a tomboy has it's moments and although in everyday living one can not be as she is - you secretly wish you could - but the softer side to all of us there will always be!
Again - I want to go live there - want to be that happy - want to find the missing parts in life that make it all matter!
Brilliantly read - superbly written
This is the 2nd book of another great trilogy from Nora Roberts... in fact I'd say this series is my favourite. I loved the bit of mystery, magic, suspense and romance.
I like the introduction and interactions with the main characters of the 1st and 3rd books with out taking the spotlight away from the main character of this book.
You really need to listen to this series in the correct order because the under current of the series keeps going. If you listen to 1 and 2, it's impossible not to get number 3!
I highly recommend this trilogy!

Yes. Heaven and Earth was much better than its predecessor, Dance Upon the Air. Leaps and bounds ahead of it. The two main characters were a much more likeable in my opinion.
Nora Roberts is one of my favorite authors, and I will probably never stop reading her. While she does have some that do not resonate with me and that I downright hated, she has many more that I just adored.
Yes. Sandra Burr did well with the madness that consumes. It was so creepy and really brought that side of the story to life. She also builds tension very well with her voice.
I did not like Ripley in the last book, but knowing her motivations behind her actions made her relatable in this book and she is my favorite of the three women. I love her relationship with her brother. Dr. Booke is so much hotter than our last male lead because his personality is SOOOO much more likable. He is not pushy, he takes Ripley's feelings, thoughts, wants, and desires, into consideration, and he does not try to change her personality, unlike the former male lead. *cough cough*. The contrast between Ripley and Dr. Booke is wonderful, and it creates some amazing tension that when it finally snapped, it sizzled.
In a really weird way, I loved their shared interest in fitness because of my own journey in weight loss. Repeatedly in romance novels, the leads just happens to have underwear model worthy bodies. We are expected to believe that the female lead has good genes and the male lead’s career lets him have that body. I liked that they strived for it, worked for it, and enjoyed working for it, and we were able to see that. It was realistic and that made me like them both more.
Overall, I would suggest it to any Nora Robert's fans, and any fans of sexy but nerdy male leads, rich guy meets every day girl romances, supernatural romances, and romances that include a strong woman falling in love for the first time.
narrator was great, story was good for me just missing the punches that dark witch has.
"Heaven and Earth "
as usual nora roberts delivers a good love story with a difference.
This is book 2and I am starting book 3.
