I loved the continuity of this series. Seeing the aftermath of Jewels of the Sun and Tears of the Moon. It was a bit like Jude and Aidan and Brenna and Shawn's stories were continued and I, as the reader, got to know them a bit better than I had before.

I liked this series because it was… practical. I've never met a character with a materialistic streak in romance, and it was very refreshing. And seeing how Trevor kept offering her jewels and opportunities because he thought it might keep her wit

In spite of the fact that I loved Jewels of the Sun, and enjoyed Tears of the Moon, I am now officially off the Nora bandwagon. Heart of the Sea was not a great ending to this trilogy. First of all, I can't imagine something less romantic than two folks making a business-like agreement about their sexual relationship. Yuck! This takes place at the beginning of the story, and I realize that it was consistent with their characters, but still....not romantic, and a bad place to start. I also had a ...more
It's impossible for me to truly enjoy a book when i just don't like the main characters.

Darcy was okay when she was a supporting player in the other stories, but she was just overly obnoxious here. I have never seen someone so obsessed with money and the idea of being rich. And Trevor wasn't much better. He came off as an arrogant asshat most of the time.

My love for the other members of the Gallagher family just couldn't save this one for me,

This is the final book of the Gallaghers series and it's a good wrap up. Darcy knows exactly what she wants in a man, chief of which is wealth. She is unashamedly materialistic and self-interested and knows what she wants and, more importantly, why—which has made Trevor Magee an obvious target since he showed up off-screen in book 1.

Interestingly, Roberts chose to make Trevor a near cookie-cutter image of Darcy rather than a complement to her. He's materialistic and self-interested as well, and

I finished this book yesterday afternoon but was feeling way too lazy to update! I really liked this series, and the last book was definitely a treat. Trevor Magee, as gruff alpha-male, was fun to read, especially with Darcy throwing things at him!

I just wish that we could have seen more of Trevor/Darcy and Carrick/Gwen in the end, when things finally came together. Even more of Shawn & Brianna, and Aidan and Jude, with their new baby! I love the journey, to see how people work things out to

This has been one of my favorite Nora Roberts' trilogies. I must admit that I love Ireland as a setting for any book, but no one does it like NR. The close relationships - friends, family, neighbors are present, but not dominating the love story. I love it in romance when these relationships are at least acknowledged. In so many books the H/h have no one. No friends, no family. That is just not realistic.

Darcy Gallagher wants the fine things in life, travel, fine clothing, and most of all a rich

This third installment in the Irish Trilogy is okay, nothing spectacular. I have trouble enjoying it when the female is so full of her own perfection that she can't imagine ever being in love because no one will ever be good enough for her. That takes the fun out of the story. I didn't find Darcy very easy to like. Probably her only good quality is her fierce loyalty to her brothers but other than that, she seems very superficial and her growth in the final pages was too little too late for me.

Darcy, of the flamboyant personality, volatile temper, sharp tongue and of the assumed mercenary interests, was a challenge. How to have her remain true to her character without making her totally unlikable or even despicable?
Surprisingly she was handed on a silver plater the man of her dreams, beautiful, rich and richer, and able to support her in her lifestyle dream. I really liked how she realized progressively how her former expectations were wrong and definitely not enough to make her happy

This final installment in Roberts's faerie tale trilogy returns readers to Ardmore, Ireland, where the Gallagher family's pub is the heart of the community. Passionate and beautiful, Darcy Gallagher works as a waitress in the family pub while looking for a way to achieve the glamorous lifestyle to which she would like to become accustomed. Enter wealthy American builder Trevor Magee, whose Irish roots have drawn him back to the childhood home of his grandfather to build a theater. As Darcy and T ...more
I am not going to review every Nora Roberts book that I have read in the past because she is quite prolific and it would get redundant and I honestly cannot remember all the plots. I think someone finds someone else attractive but at least one cannot admit it so there is sexual tension, then lots of sex, and then they live happily ever after? Sometimes there is some magic , a family legacy, or a mystery. Certainly not great works of literature (however still 100% better than “the grapes of wrath ...more
I bought this series because of the beautiful covers and because the synopsis of the first book intrigued me. Book 1 was okay even though pathetic Jude's whining annoyed me after awhile but I loved Aidan. I liked book 2 since, while a bit pushy at times, I actually like Brenna and Shawn. But book 3, OMG book 3... it's getting 2 stars instead of 1 because I actually liked Trevor and I like some of the background characters but I HATE Darcy. What a self centered, selfish bitch. And the fact that s ...more

I was eager to begin #3 in the Irish trilogy, “Heart of the Sea”, as soon as I finished #2. Yes, absolutely read them in order! The order is important to the mortal characters, and also the progression of fate for faerie Prince, Carrick, and his lost love, Lady Gwen. She has wandered the hills and shores of Ireland for three centuries hoping to be reunited with him – her true love.

Heart of the Sea follows the third and last couple that must find true love and break the spell. In this final episo

Terceiro e último livro da Trilogia Irlandesa, com Darcy Gallagher e Trevor Magee como protagonistas.

Darcy sempre sonhou casar com um homem rico e bonito. Trevor é esse homem. Nenhum deles consegue resistir à atracção instantânea que sentem, nem nenhum deles poderia imaginar que as suas vidas mudariam irremediavelmente e nenhum tencionava apaixonar-se pelo outro... mas foi exactamente isso que aconteceu.

Darcy é mimada, determinada, com uma auto-confiança a raiar a arrogância, mas honesta e leal.

Ok, I decided to give this one another try and I read it again, because the last time I read it really fast. Anyway, I still consider this last one book of the Irish Trilogy not my favourite. It was hard to simpatize with Darcy and much difficult with Trevor. I still consider the ending is perfect, when finally Lady Gwen and Carrick end up together.

Now that I've read the 3 books I have to admit that the second one (Tears of the Moon) is definetely my favorite. The first one (Jewels of the Sun) i

the happily predestined couple fall in love at first sight (on page 24) and spend the book struggling only with each other's personalities (and their own) and exploring the troubling possibility that the family ghosts are pushing them together before deciding to ignore it. Every other character (ghosts included) wishes them well, so there is no external factor to make things interesting. The anthropologist-turned-barmaid from the first book gives birth at

Plus vibrante sera la chute. Car lorsque un homme et une femme aussi hermétiques à l'amour tombent à genoux, complètement vaincus, la scène d'aveux finale devient vertigineuse, à l'image du chemin parcouru.
Voilà, pour ce troisième et dernier tome de la série, l'histoire de deux orgueils, de deux vanités et de deux volontés de fer qui s'affrontent et se frottent, dans un passionnant corps à corps, à la fois glacé et enflammé.

Oh I adore these books, after reading the Cousin O'Dwyer books by Nora Roberts I thought I would give these a try and am so glad I did.

Nora Roberts blends a wonderful spell of folklore, magic and romance. I have to say out of all the characters in the books it was Darcy who intrigued me. Always quick to temper and detained to get what she wants, it was never a boring read.

Having Irish heritage this book called to me, and made me long to see the greenery of Ireland.


This is the third and final installment of the Ardmore trilogy. Darcy has always dreamed of riches and her dreams are about to come true when rich man, Trevor Magee, comes to her little village...

I was actually looking forward to this book, thinking it will be much better than the previous two - because of the unusual female character. Darcy has been described as extremely shallow and materialistic in the previous two books, so i kept wondering how the author would redeem her in this one -

The legend continues, the curse has yet to be broken. It's up to the last couple to take the leap. But here comes the problem: they are both stubborn, they are both hard-worker and they both have a heart they are afraid to listen to. However, magic can affect them and make them think twice about their actions especially when everyone - living or dead, ghosts or princes - is involved.
The funniest part I think was the baby delivery. It might have been a serious moment for all of them starting with

I am a fan or Nora Roberts books, and tend to gobble them up when I get the chance. This was no different, the third in The Irish Trilogy series. I have not had the pleasure of reading the first two, this book can be read alone or as part of the series.

Trevor Magee is building a theatre at the back of the Gallagher pub in a tiny Irish Village. He's come to find his roots and unknowingly the answers to his dreams. He finds he's come to build more than a stone structure.

Romance; book 3 of the Irish Trilogy.
I liked this one more than number two and about the same as number one. I hadn't particularly liked Darcy in the first two books (not that I disliked her, I think I just didn't get her) and wasn't sure what I would think of this one. But Roberts did a lovely job with her and I loved Trevor. Their romance was easy and nice to read and my main complaint is that the story stopped as soon as they had admitted to each other th

The main character FAXED his parents instead of emailing them. *snorts* In 2000! And it was INTERNATIONAL, so I imagine that fax was EXPENSIVE!!! Hello! We totally had FREE email back then! Oh, and how Brenna is all WOW'd that Jude has a MODEM in the first book.

Why is it that in every book of this trilogy, the angry and distraught heroine punches her man in the face or stomach, drawing blood in one instance and breaking his nose in another? For an author so dedicated to writing strong female characters and shattering the “oh woe is me” mentality of romance genre heroines, Nora Roberts does modern women a great disservice in condoning female on male domestic violence. We can’t have it both ways. If women are to be equal to men, than a woman striking a m ...more

Simplesmente amei esta trilogia. Os livros foram lidos quase de uma vez. A trama, a narrativa, a concepção e apresentação das personagens está tão bem feita que andei pelos cantos a suspirar pelas terras da Irlanda e pela magia que elas nos transmite.

Me costó un poco más terminar este libro. No me gusta mucho la forma de pensar de Darcy, es muy superficial. Sé que al final cambia pero no me parece que sea un cambio como tal, es... no sé cómo decirlo, creo que para ella es fácil aceptar a Trevor porque es rico, guapo e inteligente. Ella es ambiciosa y lo confiesa, Trevor dice que la quiere y que está enamorado, pero no lo dice convencido. Lo que yo veo es que Trevor quiere comprar a Darcy y ella se deja. No me gustó por esa razón, porque aunq ...more

Darcy Gallagher makes no apology for who she is and she wants. She helps her brothers Aidan and Shawn run Gallagher's Pub. Both of their lives changed in ways neither of them expected. Darcy secrets wants what her brothers have. Trevor "Trev" Magee of Magee Enterprise has always been curious about his Irish heritage because it's rarely spoken of which saddens and frustrates him too. Coming to Ardmore for Trevor is part dream and part business. When Trevor finally meets Darcy Gallagher, he's smit ...more
