Ah, her early work. Nora had improved so much.

I read this book immediately after I read the first one, which was when I was 14, and the first time I read it, I didn't like it as much as I liked Adelia and Travis' story.

A couple years later, I reread Irish Thoroughbred, and decided to reread this one too. I loved it.

The sweet anguish the heroine feels, loving the hero, thinking he thinks she only wants his money, and how she suffers, and pain his treatment causes - it is everything I love in a book. Nora Roberts is truly one of the best writ

Jiwa Erin sangat gelisah, dia begitu ingin pergi meninggalkan kota kelahirannya, melihat wilayah lain, tetapi dengan situasi keuangan keluarganya, rasanya dia harus bersabar.
Burke mampu melihat kegelisahan jiwa Erin, karena jiwanya dan jiwa Erin laksana cermin, dan itu yang membuat Burke sangat tertarik kepada Erin.
Dengan dalih menawarkan pekerjaan kepada Erin, Burke membawa Erin masuk kedalam kehidupannya.
Kekuatan, keberanian, ketabahan, kepolosan dan kejujuran Erin membuat Burke jatuh cinta ta

¡Cada vez mejora esta serie!
En el primero Travis era un sol, pero debo reconocer que Burke me ha ganado en este libro, con una personalidad única.
Lo mejor el mundo de las carreras de caballos. ¡Genial!

The second book in the "Irish Hearts" book by Nora Roberts. Dee, her husband Travis and children go back to Ireland to look at thoroughbred racing horses and to visit Dee's distant cousin Erin McKinnon. Erin is working hard and dreaming of saving her money to leave the small town and find the riches and family life that she envies of Dee. Along with the Grant's, is a neighboring thoroughbred rancher and racer, Burke Logan. To Erin, he is an arrogant, cigar-smoking, rogue sort of man. She is not ...more

I liked this one better than the first in the series, you can see how much Ms. Roberts writing style had developed in the years between the two books. Here we saw her knack for incorporating many point of views and seamlessly changing them even within a few paragraphs of each other. I really liked the first half or so of the book. Then the lack of communication between Burke and Erin really started to annoy me. Even when some not so nice stuff starts to happen, they are really not communicating. ...more

The first book in this series is the first Nora Roberts book I read, and I read it a long time ago. I loved it for the romance and for the horses. Recently I came across this second in the series, and I thought I'd get another dose of the same. Not exactly.

What Nora Roberts does really well is capture sound and soul of Ireland. I'll read her Irish books just for that. She also creates characters with depth and quirks. But sometimes the problems the characters have could be resolved by sitting do

Este livro é completamente diferente do anterior, assim como as suas personagens são mais vincadas e orgulhosas. Consegui ligar-me profundamente a elas e a, de repente, devorar a história por completo sem querer fazer nenhuma pausa. Há, para além do romance, uma áurea de sedução em determinados momentos quando as personagens principais se juntam assim como o embate de feitios e orgulhos entre eles é tão intenso que eu conseguia sentir toda a raiva e fúria aquando desses momentos. Um livro que, s ...more
Cenário de alguns dos livros mais maravilhosos de Nora Roberts, a Irlanda, já cenário de magia, ganhou outro relevo com a autora, e tornou-se terra de romance, encanto e finais felizes. As suas tradições e gentes são nos apresentados das mais variadas formas ao longo dos seus romances mas a sensação que nos transmitem é sempre a mesma: um regresso a casa. Podemos ter feitiços de mil anos, romances trágicos, fugas ao destino, o que quer que seja, a Irlanda é sempre o cenário perfeito.

When Erin McKinnon’s cousin Adelia and her husband and children are coming to visit from America, Erin is excited about it. She is also jealous, as she wants more than the small village of Skibbereen, and she wants a loving family like her cousin has for her self. What she does not know is that a friend and neighbour of Travis and Adelia is with them. And Burke Logan is instantly intrigued by the fiery Erin. He recognizes something of himself in her, the want for more, for new things, for riches ...more

I always say it, Nora Roberts is a great choice!
I loved this book even more than the previous because of Logan's development!
How he wanted to be a free animal and he suddenly finds Erin and all his plans are crushed!
It broke my heart when she got kidnapped and the brief moments of anxiety. And the reaction of Logan when she is found, and recovering on the hospital. It really touched my heart. So that's why I give this book 5 stars. Plus, Grant and Dee appears with a bunch of babies and i

I skimmed this in places.

It is very similar to prior book. Heroine is a small town girl from Ireland (distant cousin to first heroine). Hero is a player who avoids family and roots. He marries her because he wants to bed her, she accepts because she loves him (after all of a day I think). This book had the added twists of a pregnancy and a kidnapping serving as the motivation for the hero finally acknowledging and admitting his love for the heroine.

I really enjoyed reading IRISH ROSE. I found myself to be just as enamored with this second novel in the Irish Hearts series as I had been with IRISH THOROUGHBRED before it. Since I had grown extremely found of Travis Grant and Adelia Cunnane from the previous novel, I was thrilled to find out what had progressed between them after they had declared their love for one another and became a couple. And...I was TOTALLY DELIGHTED to find out that the newlyweds were starting and adding to their famil ...more

I like this one better than the first one (Irish Thoroughbred).
A little more suspense.
Still quite a lot of drama caused by misunderstanding and the inability to communicate properly bla bla bla

But hey, I enjoyed it hahahaha!
Enjoyable enough

A pleasant read, though it didn't quite hold up to what I expect from NR. Perhaps a little older, less polished and... just less than , I suppose, compared to some of my favorites by her. Will complete the trilogy.

Oh my!

When I was about eighteen, my parents had a yard sale and made me sell some of my books. I had thousands, and they were basically like, "It's time to pull the plug." I regret it so much now but I did sell a ton of books like my Sweet Valleys, my Babysitters Club, Nancy Drews, etc. What a mistake! I put aside a box of "NEVER SELL BOOKS" and my Dad accidentally put it up for sale. By the time I realized, they were half gone. It.Was.Awful.

This book was one of them!

I didn't enjoy this book as much as the first book. I did feel it was a little less believable. Jumping a plane leaving her family her country to go follow a guy (you can call it a job but it really was a guy). I just didn't feel Erin was as strong as Dee was made to be in the first book.
Gina Mora
Burke was thick headed, but I liked him. Erin was fantastic. Rosa was weird. Yet again, great characters, but lackluster plot. Better than the first of the series though. Loved seeing Dee and Travis and the kids!

I have to say, this one was more enjoyable than the first in the series. Nora must have learned some things after writing her first book! The series is still not that interesting!
Me gusta esta trilogìa. chiclit antes de serlo. Romanticona al 100%.
Personajes lindos... chica fuerte.
Me gustó lo del mundo de los caballos.

Another good book by Nora Roberts! This one went more into backstory than the previous in the series, but left me wanting more at the end.

One of Nora Roberts early books and still very enjoyable. She really does an excellent job a developing her characters. Can't wait to see how they grow in next book in trilogy.

Nora Roberts was born in Silver Spring, Maryland. She began writing when a blizzard in February 1979 kept her in her hilltop home with a three and six year old for nearly a week of canceled kindergarten and dwindling chocolate supplies.

During the now-famous blizzard, she pulled out a pencil and notebook and began to write a story for her own entertainment. From the first page, she knew it was wha
