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.

"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)
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!
I read so I can write
This is yet another wonderful trilogy by Nora Roberts and book three is magic - a terrific wrap up to the whole story.
I liked the way Roberts gave more plot time to each man in the story and highlighted each ones importance.
I would have eliminated about 5 chapters in the middle of the book that didn’t do anything to add to the story or character development. It just made the story way too long. Then the last chapter seemed to speed up and end abruptly.
Serine, pleasant, balanced
I was slightly disappointed in this last book to teh series. After the improvement in the second book I was looking forward to a more thrilling ending but it fizzled. I felt like Roberts used up her best stuff in book 2.
This book is a light, good read but not one that I listen to again.
The main character is always my favorite because that is where the action is.
again, the main character.

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.
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.
Mia Devlin and how she cares for those she loves including Logan.
Born in Fire by Nora Roberts. Same intense characters.
The Irish accent.
Just loved the book. Very intense romance between Mia and Logan. Great listening:)
Love Scifi, Fantasy & Paranormal & have been reading them for as long as I can remember. Due to health issues I now mainly listen to Audio.
Over the last month or so I was beginning to look for something new. Christmas is always a slow time for new books and I had been re listening to old favourites.
I went back through my Library for books I had purchased in previous sales, books I probably would not normally buy but held some interest, in some way, so I purchased them at the discounted price.
One of these purchases was Dance Upon the Air (Three Sisters Island Trilogy).
I purchased it because of the witchcraft & paranormal element and because Sandra Burr is an excellent Narrator.
Once I started to listening I was hooked and now that I have finished the series I am searching for more of Nora Roberts books with a witchcraft/paranormal bent.
Face the Fire is the final instalment in the Three Sisters Island trilogy, which has held me from book one. As with its predecessors, this book does not disappoint and will leave you believing in magic. The narration by Sandra Burr is excellent each and every character comes alive with her narration.
The series is revolves around the Circle of Three with the present day witches having the same powers as their female ancestors. Nell Channing is Air, Ripley Todd is Earth and Mia Devlin is Fire. Each one of these three women will face situations similar to their ancestors and each must make a choice battling evil and in the end love and magic will either win or lose all (no spoilers sorry ;).
As the series progresses, the reader becomes quite invested in the strong characters, not only in Nel, Ripley & Mia and their counterparts Zach, Mac & Sam but the support characters and even the villain(s).
There's a menacing thread throughout each book in the trilogy that culminates in the last book with a twist.
Whilst each book is dedicated to each of the 'sisters' but each book also adds to the back story and helps bring not only the main characters to life but the support characters and the island it's self.
Nora Robert's deft touch creates a sexy and magical romance edged with mystery.
I would highly recommend this to anyone who likes their Fantasy with just the right amount of the paranormal & romance. But if you can't let your mind encompass witchcraft and paranormal events this is best left alone. . . when I told my sister I was listening to this series it turned out she was a Nora Roberts fan but hated this series and never even finished the first book . . .
Each to their own
I love Mac, he is just so open to the experience and so patient and loving to the sisters.
I love her voices and the cadence of her reading. She pulls me into the story so well, her style agrees with my ears.
I wish I had time but I don't find it a problem that I cannot do that
This was a great series, I always enjoy Nora Roberts and Sandra Burr does a wonderful job narrating it which makes it even better..
The Three Sisters Island Trilogy is wonderfully narrated which, I'm finding, really makes the difference on how much I enjoy the book. Same books I have read and enjoyed and could hardly get through the story in an audible format because the narration was so poor. This series is very well done.
