Product Description

From Amazon

Bestselling author Nora Roberts has another classic on her hands with Heart of the Sea. 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 Trevor revel in the heated sexual attraction that flares between them, neither believes that they are the final key to end an ancient spell that separated Carrick the Faerie Prince and his human lady love, Gwen. But Ireland is a magic place, where the faeries dance among mere mortals and love blossoms under starry skies. Let veteran storyteller Nora Roberts transport you to the Emerald Isle, home of the little people and overwhelming passion. --Alison Trinkle --This text refers to the Mass Market Paperback edition.

From Publishers Weekly

Veteran romance writer Roberts is known for her ability to deliver a rich and satisfying story, and this conclusion to her Irish trilogy (following Jewels of the Sun and Tears of the Moon) is no exception. The final installment begins when wealthy builder Trevor Magee arrives in the Irish village of Ardmore. There he meets Darcy Gallagher, who aspires to the more lavish lifestyle that only a wealthy husband can provide. Immediately attracted, the two begin to negotiate an arrangement uncomplicated by the messiness of love. Their hearts have other plans, howeverAand so does Carrick, a brooding faerie prince who uses them to plot a reunion with his long-dead and long-lost lover, Lady Gwen. Although she could have limited her bold, beautiful and wealth-conscious protagonists to 1980s glitz-and-glamour superficiality, Roberts is triumphant in realizing fully developed characters, as both Trevor and Darcy turn out to be vulnerable human beings with appealingly ordinary hopes and dreams.

5.0 out of 5 stars Finally its Darcy's turn Dec 17 2012
Format:Mass Market Paperback|Verified Purchase
Its a Nora Roberts novel - what more is needed to be said. Her books are always well written, about ordinary people in ordinary (usually) situations. Who doesn't enjoy a good romance novel?

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Book, but. . . Feb. 25 2004
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Heart of the Sea, is, don't get me wrong a good book, and be quite enjoyable. But it lacks the charm the first two in the trilogy had. I feel like I enjoyed Darcy, the main female character in this one, better in the other two. I'd defiantly read it if you hadn't, but it isn't one I've re-read like I did with the other two. So all in all, it's an enjoyable book, and is worth the time to read, and even to buy.

a beautifully written book.though,what with darcy being such a bloody compulsive buyer and money lover,its hard to feel exactly empathetic towards her character.apart from it all,it was nice reading again about ardmore,carrick the faerie prince,lady gwen,the pub,and all the gallaghers.aidan and shawn are such loves,aren't they?

5.0 out of 5 stars Down with Steve McKnelly!!!!!!!!!!! Dec 11 2003
By Carol
Format:Mass Market Paperback
All I can say to you, Steve McKnelly is to stay away from Nora Roberts books cause you obviously don't have the brains to realize that people read these books for the romance. Who cares if the Irish lands, culture, or whatever is embellished on or not. We, most women, read them for the romantic setting, the pretty setup to a wonderful romance. Nora Roberts is the best author I've come across yet in my thirty-five years and I'm in no hurry to find a better one. The Irish trilogy is one of the best trilogy Nora Roberts has. Along with the three sisters trilogy and Dream trilogy, it keeps you glued to what is going to happen next. Keep reading everyone. You won't regret reading this one. I promise! :-P on you Steve!

3.0 out of 5 stars Unsympathetic Characters Aug. 25 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This conclusion to Nora Roberts' enchanting Irish trilogy is probably the most sensual of all yet it suffers because the hero and heroine are not sympathetic until later in the book. While I enjoyed the magical atmosphere and the vibrancy of the characters, it was hard initially to be fully transported into the story because the leads were utterly selfish and calculating people. Roberts finally humanizes them, but we should have glimpsed more of their humanity from the beginning.

5.0 out of 5 stars An amazing conclusion Aug. 6 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Reading some of the reviews about this book, i noticed some disliked darcy as a main character because of her obsession with wealth. I on the other hand saw it from a different angle. To be it seemed that Darcy loved Trevor from the beginning before she even knew who he was. The attraction was there from the start. Later on she realized that love was the only thing she wanted compared to what she craved before. I enoyed this book as much as the previous two if not more. This book adds so much more when revealing further updates about Brenna and Jude. This trilogy touched my heart unlike any other book I've ever read because each story has a moral to it. All these books are truly enchanting! Highly recommended

1.0 out of 5 stars Padraig Pearse died for this??? Feb. 4 2003
Format:Mass Market Paperback
This book, along with the other two, are beyond generic Ireland. They're an insult to the Irish people. Ms. Roberts makes a big thing about her love for the country but it's obvious she has never been more then a weekend tourist. The entire trilogy is built on a shaky foundation shot full of holes that could have been plugged with just a day or two of internet research. I'm especially turned off by the way she has ignored anything negative in Irish history and skirted the English Occupation like it never existed. The pub in the book was built three years before the start of the Great Famine yet she never addresses how the Gallagher family dealt with it and managed to pull the pub through.
I'm all for love winning the day but this is formula romance badly researched with stock characters I could care less about. You want a good love story with some REAL Irish culture? Go read Morgam Llewellyn.

2.0 out of 5 stars The conclusion to the Gallagher trilogy Oct. 3 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Courtesy of Love Romances
Darcy is the youngest of the Gallagher siblings and the only one still looking for happily-ever-after. She is a small town girl with big city dreams. She swears she will only marry a rich man who can give her the exotic life she has always longed for. She believes in fate and magic and faery legends, but who wouldn't when living a life in the small Irish town of Ardmore, where legends are a matter of course?
Trevor Magee is an Irishman who was raised in the US by his exceedingly practical parents. He comes to Ardmore to build a theatre, and learn more about his family history and what caused them to abandon their roots. He is happy to meet the Gallagher clan and is brought into their fold. When he first sees Darcy in a window, he is fascinated by her beauty and is determined to get to know her.
Trevor and Darcy are mutually attracted and agreeable to having a fling. Darcy has no interest in love, only money and fame; Trevor doesn't believe in love, but is willing to shower Darcy with riches and adventure. The more they are together, the more they are drawn to each other, until their agreement is no longer enough. With the help of Carrick the faery prince and his lady love who is now a ghost, maybe Trevor and Darcy will come together and realize their real dreams are in fact each other.
This conclusion to the Gallagher trilogy is definitely not the best of the three. It is in fact, extremely disappointing. Darcy is very shallow, caring only about money and fame and flaunting them both. When she was a minor character in the other two books, this was tolerable, when she is the heroine, it is annoying. All through the story, she made it very clear to Trevor that was all she wanted from him, nothing more. Until she started to fall in love with him...
