Finally back home in Ireland after years of traveling, Aidan Gallagher possesses an uncommon understanding of his country's haunting myths. Although he's devoted to managing the family pub, a hint of wildness still glints in his stormy eyes. In Jude, he sees a woman who can both soothe his heart and stir his blood. And he begins to share the legends of the land with her, while they create a passionate history of their own.

"Roberts, a storytelling wizard, is at her best here, creating a fantastic setting for the continuing romantic tales of the Gallaghers." (Publishers Weekly)
Despite my usual commitment to see a book through to the finish, I had to call it quits on this one. The story is sophomoric, the characters shallow and the reader an insult to the Irish. The main characters spend most of their time swilling beer, nibbling at each other or having "tay." Spare yourself the aggravation!
This might be for you. However, the narrator is not comfortable with the story and the main character is ridiculously stereotyped. She is a woman who has no idea who she is and can't resist the passion of a handsome man. Although she is portrayed as intellectual and reserved she comes off childish and not very bright. I couldn't listen to half the story - very disappointed. However, it is very typical romance but not well developed.
I have a very fast paced life. Audio books are an awesome alternative for me. Long road trips, working out and housework arn't a bore.
This is yet another unique and fun read. Nora Roberts is very talented and proves it over and over again.
I love this entire trilogy.I am a fan of Nora Roberts Science Fiction and Fantasy books. Wish she did more of them!
My favorite summer reading...Nora Roberts. I love the format. Girl not interested in boy, Girl falls for boy, Girl somehow needs to leave boy, Girl chooses to stay with boy. I LOVE IT!
I just want to get on a plane and meet aiden and jude wow they are like real people and the reader with the irish accent WOW
Jude does something I think most of us wish we could - I know is South Africa, get aways like this are not likely - our way of living is just different.
You feel for her - want her to be stronger, you encourage and moan at her almost as much as the ghosts do!
The Irish accent and the way this is read, makes the book so enjoyable - makes the characters so alive!
Thank you both for a wonderful book!
This is not Nora Roberts at her best. Yes its well read, its easy listening, so easy my mind kept wandering from the story. Have already bought the other two in the trilogy, and will listen, hoping the story picks up.
