Tears of the Moon by Nora Roberts
Tears Of The Moon is book two in the Irish Trilogy of contemporary romances, once more set in the village of Ardmore on the south coast of Ireland. This is the story of Brenna O’Toole, builder by trade, and Shawn Gallagher, musician and chef.
Each story in this trilogy is wrapped around a legend of lost love between the prince of the Faeries and a ghost. A three hundred year curse has kept them apart, until love can find its way three times to break the spell .
Brenna and Shawn have known each other all of their lives, but Brenna intends moving their friendship forward. Always a forceful woman, she propositions Shawn. The shock has him turning her down, but it sets into motion a merry dance between the pair, one with fierce heated arguments and equally fiery moments of passion.
Faerie cottage weaves its magic again; once, twice and now a third meeting of hearts is required to set the mythical lovers free. With her brothers Aiden and Shawn now happily married, will their sister Darcy, the woman who has men falling at her feet, be the final piece of the puzzle? I am looking forward to reading Darcy’s story in the final book of the series.
This series is Nora Roberts at her best, I loved the setting and the elements of Irish myth and contemporary beliefs which took me on a journey of wonderful escapism.

But it is only when Shawn gives in to the mysteries of magic that he gets the chance to fulfill his destiny as a man and a musician—as the song in his head keeps time with the beating of a woman’s heart…
