BOOK THREE OF THE GALLAGHERS OF ARDMORE TRILOGY

Walk with #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts in the shadow of an ancient tower and hear a story of dreams fulfilled and wishes come true...

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 to uncover the 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 and 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.

Number one fan of Nora Roberts!

I not only liked this book it’s my favorite of all three. I have read (heard) since I am hearing it for the fifth time and will listen again in a few months time. Darcy is my favorite character since book one. I have told everyone who will listen to me about these books. Though these three are running neck to neck with the McGreger series.

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 .

Bad reader

This reader is so bad I didn't think I could finish it. The reader is atrocious. Stilted speaking, spaced out ever word, breathing stops in the middle of a sentence that breaks it apart incorrectly so that you almost miss that the rest of the sentence pertained to the earlier part. That kind of disruption ruins the story having to go back and make sense of it.

I don't understand how producers or directors don't fix these while being produced. In fact, I had to return the book because I can't listen to this ever again.

Terrible narration.

That was the most cringe worthy audible experience I have had. Could not finish the book.

Loved the story and the performance by Daniels

This third story is a well-written culmination of the Gallagher’s of Ardmore trilogy. It mainly focuses on Darcy, but the plot shares details and developments about the other characters that provides a satisfying resolution for all.

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........

Lovely finish to the trilogy

Is wasn’t as satisfying as the first two books more a book to cause anxiety as the main characters are both so Stubborn in there mannerisms. I felt that I wanted to hit them over the head to tell them to wake up and speak out.
