Format: Mass Market Paperback
Each book I read written by Nora Roberts seems to get better than the one before. I started to read the Jewels of the Sun trilogy a week ago and thought that the best book ever, then came Tears of the Moon which seemed to better the first and I have just finished Heart of the Sea and can't believe shes 'done it again'. This book really rounded off all the characters in the previous two and added Trevor Magee the least likely person to believe in magic and a Prince of Faeries and ghosts of beautiful ladies who totally succumbed to Irish myths and legends and of course to the irrepressible Darcy Gallagher. If you have never read a Nora Roberts book this trilogy would be a good place to start by the time you get to Heart of the Sea you will be completely hooked as I am on the books she writes so prolifically, but so excellently. I have no hesitation in giving this one 5 stars and look forward to the next book of hers I read with great anticipation.

Darcy may seem to be the least likeable of the Gallaghers, but she has a bigger heart than she gives herself credit for, as she discovers when Trevor Magee brings a breath of New York to the quiet Irish scene.
How the "ambitious and mercenary" Darcy and the "efficient businessman" Trevor cope with finding that they are capable of love after all - and with the added complication of Prince Carrick, impatient to be free of his own 300 year old spell - makes an entertaining and satisfying conclusion to the trilogy. I agree that it is not among the author's more exciting books, (some of them are rather too exciting for me!), but even in her gentler moods she has a special talent for blending passion with humour, and the mundane with the unexpected. Her decriptive passages are also well worth a second reading. (This brings the score to two disappointed reviews and two enthusiastic ones - It'll be interesting to see which way any further reviews go!!)

I bought this trilogy on a whim which certainly paid off! I am a fan of Nora Roberts (including her J D Robb series) and thought I would give this a try, a little light reading for the train journey to work - however it pulled me right into the story. I didn't want to leave the train, I wanted to stay there all day just so that I could read about Aidan, Shaun and Darcy and their exploits at Gallaghers, their pub. Having visited Dublin many moons ago, I could totally relate to the lively atmosphere in the pub and the spontaneous bursts of song that seem to be an every day part of life in Ireland. A definite buy for those who want to escape into the realm of faeries and magic!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
I have read most of Roberts books and usually find her trioligies some of her better work, but with this final chapter of her latest Irish setting I was sadly dissapointed. It took me a long time to actually like the heroine. Because her love of money was discussed so much, so early, for the rest of the book it made me wonder if she did love the hero for himself. I got the feeling the story was written too fast with not enough plot to it, after the first two books Roberts seems to have run out of steam. In fact as I sit here writting this review, I find it very difficult to remember a plot (and I only read the book 2 weeks ago). It won't put me off reading another Nora Roberts book though, as an average story for her is better than some other writers best efforts.

By jazzy pom VINE VOICE on 7 Nov. 2007
Format: Paperback
Darcy Gallagher has a yen, no, make that many yens: To travel, to live the high life and to find a man that can make this happen. In the meanwhile, she's content to make a living at the bar with her brothers, Aiden and Shaun.
Then, Trevor Macgee comes on the scene. He's a rich yank coming back to Ireland, to reclaim his roots, and to build a business venture with the Gallaghers at the same time. He's just as cynical as Darcy is, and both of them meet and decide to have a bit of fun, as it were.

The outcome is as expected, but there's an emotional maze from both parties to get there. This book has the sort of magic that Ms. Roberts seems to to be pulled towards nowadays (an Irish Faerie Prince and his love), and the sort of male/female archetypes that Ms. Roberts is fond of. Darcy is the 'simply female' girl, the one who knows what she's about, whereas Trevor is the guy with money who's all shades cool, cynical and remote.

I liked this book because the characters were really funny, spunky and lovely to know. It's a good read, and you don't need to read the other books to appreciate the scope of the tale.

By Cloggie Downunder TOP 500 REVIEWER on 22 Sept. 2012
Format: Paperback
Heart of the Sea is the third of the Ardmore Gallaghers series by Nora Roberts. Darcy Gallagher is in charge of service at Gallagher's Pub in Ardmore, but has ambitions to marry a rich man and see the world. When wealthy businessman Trevor Magee arrives from New York to oversee the building of a theatre attached to Gallagher's Pub, he is immediately attracted to the feisty Darcy. And she to him, before she knows anything about his wealth. When he hears her sing, he wants to sign her for a record contract. This last instalment of the Ardmore Gallaghers trilogy is a bit slow to get going, but eventually the pace picks up. Fans of the series will be pleased to encounter the characters from the first two books: Aidan and Jude, Shawn and Brenna. In this particular instalment, the romantic situation echoes the mythological tale nicely, bringing both to their ultimate resolution. The birth scene is delightful. A pleasant read.
