Publisher Comments:

First in the all-new Cousins Oand#8217;Dwyer Trilogy

From #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts comes a trilogy about the land weand#8217;re drawn to, the family we learn to cherish, and the people we long to loveand#133;

With indifferent parents, Iona Sheehan grew up craving devotion and acceptance. From her maternal grandmother, she learned where to find both: a land of lush forests, dazzling lakes, and centuries-old legends.

Ireland.

County Mayo, to be exact. Where her ancestorsand#8217; blood and magic have flowed through generationsand#151;and where her destiny awaits.

Iona arrives in Ireland with nothing but her Nanand#8217;s directions, an unfailingly optimistic attitude, and an innate talent with horses. Not far from the luxurious castle where she is spending a week, she finds her cousins, Branna and Connor Oand#8217;Dwyer. And since family is family, they invite her into their home and their lives.

When Iona lands a job at the local stables, she meets the owner, Boyle McGrath. Cowboy, pirate, wild tribal horsemen, heand#8217;s three of her biggest fantasy weaknesses all in one big, bold package.

Iona realizes that here she can make a home for herselfand#151;and live her life as she wants, even if that means falling head over heels for Boyle. But nothing is as it seems. An ancient evil has wound its way around Ionaand#8217;s family tree and must be defeated. Family and friends will fight with each other and for each other to keep the promise of hopeand#151;and loveand#151;aliveand#133;

Review:

"Bestselling contemporary romance and women's fiction author Roberts (the Inn Boonsboro trilogy) ventures into paranormal territory with the competent first segment of the Cousins O'Dwyer trilogy. Iona Sheehan has come to Ireland in search of her roots. From her distant cousin Branna O'Dwyer, Iona learns she has inherited the 'magick' of the legendary Dark Witch Sorcha, who sacrificed herself to destroy the evil wizard Cabhan. Sorcha passed her powers on to her three children, and Iona, Branna, and Branna's brother, Connor, are the latest group of three descendants to wield them. Unfortunately, Finbar Burke — Connor's best friend and possibly Branna's lover — has inherited the taint of Cabhan, though the evil has not yet affected him. Between magick lessons, Iona falls in love with handsome Boyle McGrath, 'cowboy, pirate, wild tribal horseman... three of her biggest fantasy weaknesses all rolled into one big, bold package.' Her happiness is threatened by frightening visions of a wolf and other hints of Cabhan's encroaching evil. The magick is never quite convincing, but Roberts's focus on romance will satisfy her core audience." Publishers Weekly Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved.

Synopsis:

Library Journal Best Genre Fiction of 2001

#1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts—hailed by Publishers Weekly as “a storyteller of immeasurable diversity and talent”—presents the first book in her mesmerizing new Three Sisters Island trilogy. Set on a remote, rocky island off the coast of Massachusetts, steeped in history, romance, and legend, Dance Upon the Air is an unforgettable tale of friendship, fate, and the mysterious ways of the heart…

When Nell Channing arrives on charming Three Sisters Island, she believes that she’s finally found refuge from her abusive husband—and from the terrifying life she fled so desperately eight months ago… But even in this quiet, peaceful place, Nell never feels entirely at ease. Careful to conceal her true identity, she takes a job as a cook at the local bookstore café—and begins to explore her feelings for the island sheriff, Zack Todd. But there is a part of herself she can never reveal to him—for she must continue to guard her secrets if she wants to keep the past at bay. One careless word, one misplaced confidence, and the new life she’s created so carefully could shatter completely. Just as Nell starts to wonder if she’ll ever be able to break free of her fear, she realizes that the island suffers under a terrible curse—one that can only be broken by the descendants of the Three Sisters, the witches who settled the island back in 1692. And now, with the help of two other strong, gifted women—and with the nightmares of the past haunting her every step—she must find the power to save her home, her love…and herself…
