My very first
Dark Witch by Nora Roberts
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.
County Mayo, to be exact. Where her ancestors’ blood and magic have flowed through generations—and where her destiny awaits.
Iona arrives in Ireland with nothing but her Nan’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 O’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, he’s three of her biggest fantasy weaknesses all in one big, bold package.
Iona realizes that here she can make a home for herself—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 Iona’s family tree and must be defeated. Family and friends will fight with each other and for each other to keep the promise of hope—and love—alive…

My very first Nora Roberts read...I know she has written hundreds of books and yet I had never even read one. I actually made the decision to take in one of her books a few months ago but waited until this particular title was published as I was drawn to the subject matter. This title starts The Cousins O'Dwyer trilogy, and I am happy to report that while I know there is plenty of story left, the book did not leave me in a desperate cliff hanging moment, just the sweet promise of more to come. I very much enjoyed my first Nora experience and will be sure to tune back in once book two comes out.
