From #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts comes the second novel in a trilogy about the land we’re drawn to, the family we learn to cherish, and the people we long to love…
Book Two of The Cousins O’Dwyer Trilogy
With the legends and lore of Ireland running through his blood, falconer Connor O’Dwyer is proud to call County Mayo home. It’s where his sister, Branna, lives and works, where his cousin, Iona, has found true love, and where his childhood friends form a circle that can’t be broken. A circle that is about to be stretched out of shape—by a long-awaited kiss.
Meara Quinn is Branna’s best friend, a sister in all but blood. Her and Connor’s paths cross almost daily, as Connor takes tourists on hawk walks and Meara guides them on horseback across the lush countryside. She has the eyes of a gypsy and the body of a goddess…things Connor has always taken for granted—until his brush with death propels them into a quick, hot tangle.
Plenty of women have found their way to Connor’s bed, but none to his heart until now. Frustratingly, Meara is okay with just the heat, afraid to lose herself—and their friendship—to something more. But soon, Connor will see the full force and fury of what runs in his blood. And he will need his family and friends around him when his past rolls in like the fog, threatening an end to all he loves…

The second Cousins O'Dwyer paranormal (after Dark Witch) continues the tale of six magical warriors the three descendants of the 13th-century Irish witch Sorcha, and their loyal friends determined to stand against the evil sorcerer Cabhan. After battling Cabhan on the summer solstice, the group decides that the only way to defeat him is to destroy his power source. As they prepare for the next battle, Cabhan seeks to exploit their individual weaknesses, but as always, he underestimates the power of the warriors' mutual love and respect. The slim plot is strongest when focused on the romance between Connor O'Dwyer and his sweetheart, Meara, making the battle between good and evil a relatively minor part of the novel. The character-driven story, with its picturesque rural Irish setting, will charm romance fans, but readers more familiar with contemporary urban fantasy are likely to be impatient for more action and fewer emotional tangents.
Better than that
First I love Nora Roberts. This is a lovely little story. It has good character development, great imagery and a continuing plot. It was a pleasure to read.
I almost skipped this book based on two reviews I read. This is not Nora Roberts best and I wouldn't recommend this as your first Nora Roberts read. But if you've read her work before you'll find this book a rewarding addition to your library.
Now the negatives. It's a little short and pricey. I think one larger book with the whole story would be much better and I'd be willing to pay for it.
Good story line but a little disappointing narration
Not as captivating and strong narration as you expect from Nora Roberts’s books.The story line is a strong one.
Very slow book
Not your typical Nora Roberts book in my opinion. Very slow and hard to follow. Definitely a disappointment and wish I could get my money back...
