Summary

Summary

Book Two of the Gallaghers of Ardmore Trilogy

High above the tidy village of Ardmore on a windy cliff, there is magic and music in the air, and #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts will help you find it...

A talented songwriter, Shawn Gallagher spends his days lost in reverie and wonder, oblivious to the wiles of women and the ways of the world. He claims that he's content with his life, but his music tells a different story--one of loneliness and desperate longing...

No one understands why Shawn doesn't put his musical gift to profitable use--least of all Brenna O'Toole, a fiercely independent tomboy who has been secretly in love with him for years. But it is only when Shawn gives in to the mysteries of magic that he gets the chance to fulfill his destiny as a man and a musician.

Publisher's Weekly Review

The prolific Roberts adds a second installment to her trilogy set in the village of Ardmore, Ireland. In order to break a centuries-old spell that keeps him from his true love, Carrick, Prince of Faeries, must help pub-owners Aidan, Darcy and Shawn Gallagher fall in love. In Jewels of the Sun, the first step of Carrick's plan was completed when Aidan married Jude Murray. Now Carrick has turned to Shawn, a handsome daydreamer who spends his days composing music in his head while cooking for the pub. The faerie prince hopes to match Shawn with Brenna O'Toole, a fiery-haired carpenter with a longtime secret crush on Shawn. The problem is that Shawn is perfectly happy as a single man; he informs Carrick that he will have nothing to do with his plan. But, as anyone familiar with Irish lore will tell you, mere mortals don't stand a chance against the whims of the faeries. Robert skillfully draws out Shawn and Brenna's courtship and spices the tale with descriptions of Darcy's many flirtations and an entertaining subplot concerning an expansion of the pub. Delightful to the core, this novel once again proves that Roberts is a storyteller of immeasurable diversity and talent. (July) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved


Library Journal Review

This second in the latest Roberts (Jewels of the Sun) trilogy introduces readers to Shawn Gallagher and Brenna O'Toole. Shawn is a talented songwriter, as happy in his family's pub kitchen as he is at the piano. He's known as a dreamer with not much business sense and a knack for being late and ignoring the practical details in life. Brenna is a skilled handywoman who designs furniture and buildings. Both have ignored the romantic feelings that have been part of them for years. But can a dreamer and a practical woman who is willing to push for what she wants find happiness? This story follows Brenna and Shawn as they find their friendship moving toward love. Roberts has a skill for writing excellent dialog, and listeners will find themselves wanting to know more about these characters. Reader Patricia Daniels does a fine job with the Irish accents and with bringing the tale to life. The Irish music that is used to signal the beginning and the end of each side is a nice touch. An essential addition to all romance collections.√ĄDanna Bell-Russel, Library of Congress (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc.
