"Heart of the Sea", the conclusion to Nora Roberts' Irish Trilogy, is a great read. I have to admit, I didn't like it as much as the first two ("Jewels of the Sun" and "Tears of the Moon"), but I still enjoyed it and read it in one sitting. As with the first two, the story revolves around the Gallagher family, particularly Darcy, the youngest of the three. The first two siblings, Aidan and Shawn, have been married off respectively and have started families of their own. That leaves the vivacious and flirtacious Darcy. What Darcy doesn't know is that she is the third and final key to the tragic story of Lady Gwen and her faerie prince Carrick. Gwen and Carrick must wait 300 years for 3 loves to blossom before they are reunited in love. The two eldest Gallagher's have fulfilled the first two, will headstrong Darcy allow herself to be the third?
The story also introduces us to Trevor Magee, a wealthy businessman from America who comes to Ardmore, Ireland to build a theater next to Gallagher's Pub. He has moved into the cottage on Fairy Hill, once occupied by Jude and Shawn. When he sets his sights on Darcy, he falls head over heals. Darcy herself, is also attracted to Trevor, but also to his money and power. She isn't searching for a love at first, just sex and money. But along the way she begins to feel things for Trevor that she never felt for another. Can she find it in herself to let go of material items and value the heart of a man more? Of course, you can expect Carrick and Gwen to lend their matchmaking skills on these two lovebirds.
I suggest this book for those who've already read the first two. It's a wonderful conclusion to the trilogy. If you're a first time reader of Nora Roberts, I don't suggest you read this one first. Work on the other two first.
