Face the Fire (Three Sisters Island #3)

What I didn't particularly like about the book was the romance between Mia and Sam. It didn't quite work for me. Mia keeps her heart locked away from Sam for the whole book (with good reason mostly) then at the end, she's suddenly like, okay, I accept you and your love. The abrupt chang ...more
Lucky he left, because he did them both a huge favor. She grew stronger as a witch, he became a man who finally knew what he wanted, and they could discover what ...more
The hero dumped the heroine because he felt suffocated by her and doesn't return for 11 years. She, of course spent those years torn apart, struggling to survive without him. The day he returns, she decides she will have sex without the "relationship" with him *rolls eyes* when he tells her he wants her back. Does that sound like what a rational woman will do to the guy who dumped and shattered ...more
I had been waiting to get to know Sam since he was first mentioned on the previous books. I wasn't sure if he would be the perfect mate for our amazing Mia (which was always my fav. ...more

Admitedly, part of the reason why I didn't like this book is that I don't like Nora's brooding characters as much as I like her tom-b ...more

The last book in this trilogy by Nora Roberts is as good as the first two! The author has a unique talent and describes the Three Sisters Island in a way that I wanted to be there also! This book has it all.. magic, love, friends, forgiveness...
This is the story of Mia and Sam. They were lovers when they were young but when Sam left her she didn’t want to love again. Now, Sam is back and determined to be with her ...more
This story is, in my opinion, the best of the trilogy. Mia and her ex, back on the isle with the purpose to being with her again, are a great couple.
The story has a very sweet side and it's really good.
Mia is a really intriguing character. I love how Roberts was able to portray her as an infallibly strong and confident character in the first two books, and then realistically show the reader her weaknesses when it came time to tell her story. It made her seem more real, and yet never weak. Plus, the fact that she, a) owns a bookstore, ...more
I came across these books through a friend who recommended them so highly that the very next day, she gave me them to read. Well, I was skeptical and felt like I HAD to read them to be polite. I'm really glad that I gave them a chance.
i'm in the middle of another series by No ...more
Still, I think this is one of Roberts's trilogies that I'll come back and reread when I'm in the mood for a nice bit of escapism.

But then one day he fled Three Sisters Island, leaving her lost in memories of the magic they shared - and determined to live without love... Sam has now 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...more
Recently, she came up in a discussion with my author friends, and I decided it was high time to rediscover my love for her writing. I started with this gem and have to say I enjoyed it even more the second time around, this time in English and reading from a writer's perspective.
The prota ...more
However, overall the story is good and kept me ...more
10 years later Sam has matured and come to realize that Mia is all he could ever hope to have as a ...more
With the return of Sam Logan, Mia has a lot on her mind and both think back to their past and when they were together. This book at times dragged a little but is still a good read.
My favorite out of the three would have to be Nell. I don't know if it's just me but did the ending seem a little rushed? G ...more

Her family were avid readers, so books were always important in her life. She attended a Catholic school and credits the nuns with instilling in her a sense of discipline. During her ...more
