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.

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...

5.0 out of 5 stars Here it is. The last leg of a beautiful journey. July 13 2002
Format:Mass Market Paperback
Back to Ardmore we go. Two couples down. One more to hitch. If it can be managed Prince Carrick and Lady Gwen Fitzgerald will finally be able to spend eternity together as they were meant to, basking forever in the love that first touched and ignited their hearts 300 years back (YAY! :) )
What more can be said? Aidan is more in love with Jude than ever and Shawn and Brenna finally realized their own happiness together. These two couples show that it's really wonderful that love can be so strong, last for such a time, and make lives so rich as it grows stronger day by day. All the humor and scenic color and flavor of the other two books in this series is back in Heart Of The Sea. The spice is back with a vengeance too. (Keep your tongues in your mouths! :D)
When we last left our band of merry heroes and heroines there was discussion of expanding Gallagher's pub. Now that plan gets put into full action. Enter Trevor Magee, a New York businessman who goes RIGHT after whatever he wants and pulls no punches to get it. He is, unlike his grandfather, very sentimental about his roots in Ireland and wants to go back to Ardmore to build a theater. Gallagher's pub and Trevor's theater seem like a match made in Heaven, and so they are.
Naturally after seeing her two happy go lucky brothers fall willing and happy victim to love's sweet embrace, Darcy begins to wonder "Where's mine?" (Don't worry sweetheart, he's flying in from New York today at 10. :D)
Another reviewer mentioned that she loved that Lady Gwen spoke more in this book. I have to agree. It was nice to get her opinion on things and have her tell her story.

4.0 out of 5 stars Wonderful conclusion to trilogy.. Sept. 23 2001
Format:Mass Market Paperback
"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.
