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)

Continuing her latest trilogy, begun with Jewels of the Sun, Roberts takes readers back to the magic-tinged Irish coast and into the world of the Gallaghers of Ardmore village. This time it is the dreamy, musical Shawn Gallagher and the pragmatic, no-nonsense handywoman Brenna O'Toole who feel the fey touch of Carrick, the Prince of Faeries, and his lost love Lady Gwen; but it takes a bit of doing to make this stubborn pair realize that they are truly meant to be together. With clear-eyed, concise vision and a sure pen, Roberts nails her characters and settings with awesome precision, drawing readers into a vividly rendered world of family-centered warmth and unquestioned magic. Roberts is deservedly one of the best known and most widely read of all romance writers and lives in Keedysville, MD.

Again, fantasy is not my type of book so I did not read it but I would still give Roberts a couple of stars.Published 10 months ago by bookworm
I loved the entire Irish trilogy, but this book quickly became my favorite. Brenna and Shawn's story was beautifully told and worth reading over and over again.Published on July 17 2004
