Publisher's Summary

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 uncover 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, 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.

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 .

Terrible narration.

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

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.

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.

great story

Loved the story; have read it several times. Was disappointed with the narrator though, the narration was choppy and sometimes without the emotion that went with the story.

Great End to a Wonderful Trilogy

This book is the best out of the series. I was sad to have it end. The characters and story line was so well developed and came together beautifully.
This book kept me interested the entire time!

Brilliant

By far one of my favorite trilogies of all time! I laughed, I cried, Nora Roberts is amazing. The Narrator was fantastic and sweeps you along this lovely Irish town, portraying characters remarkably well. I love all three of these books in the Irish Jewel Trilogy.
