Nora Roberts is the #1 New York Times bestselling author of more than 200 novels and has been one of my favorite authors since I started reading her novels. Romance / Thrill / Suspense and great many categories are there in her work. Most of the time there is some history attached to it. Her writing style makes you want to keep reading. Intimacy and Romance is written in a way that gives you goosebumps and there is always a longing to see what happens next.
Although this is not my very first NR novel/trilogy this is what I am currently reading. ( Reading it made me started this blog thread ) The Irish trilogy has three books.
- Jewels of the Sun
- Tears of the Moon
- Heart of the Sea
Jewels of the Sun
Goodreads Rating : 4.22
Nora Roberts takes you to the lush, green hills of Ireland, where love is forever touched by magic and where lovers will meet for the first time to explore their hearts looking for love.
After having life changing moments in her life, Jude Murray goes to live in Faerie Hill Cottage which belongs to her grand mother. Finding herself enchanted by the beauty of the village and the liveliness of the people she decided to explore more on the history and also to find herself.
“…she lost twenty minutes sitting on the floor with her arms wrapped around her knees, smiling into the pretty glow and imagining herself a contented farmer’s wife waiting for her man to come in from the fields.”
The Gallagher family is well known i the area and the eldest, Aidan becomes close to Jude. The first stage of Romance and the intimacy between them is described in a way that you feel that it’s you who is in the story. Wrapped in Magic and ancient love they finally find themselves in love and break one spell to make the lost lovers of past meet again.
If you starts reading this, you will need to keep doing so until you find out what happens in the next book. Let’s wait a beat, Shall we? 🙂
