Jewels of the Sun: The Gallaghers Of Ardmore Trilogy #1 is rated 4.8667 out of 5 by 15.
Dear Reader,

Those of you who are familiar with my books know that Ireland is one of my favorite places to visit, in real life and in fiction. It’s a country of dramatic cliffs and quiet fields. One of myth and magic and legend. In Jewels of the Sun, I’ve borrowed from some of those myths and created my own legend.

It could have happened.

I’d like you to meet the Gallaghers of Ardmore: Aidan, Shawn, and Darcy, who run the local pub in this pretty seaside village in the county of Waterford. Not far from the village is a cottage, a place of magic where a lonely American woman comes to explore her roots and her heart.

She won’t be alone in the house, for there is another lonely woman in residence. She just happens to be a ghost.

With the help of a faerie prince who loved well if not wise, Aidan Gallagher of Ardmore and Jude Frances Murray from Chicago will find their place, and take the first step toward breaking a hundred-year spell.

I’d like to take you back to Ireland with me, through the doors of Gallagher’s Pub where the fire’s burning low and the pints are waiting. I have a story to tell you.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from MAGICAL This book is pure MAGIC! The best romance novel I've ever read. Nora Roberts makes you fall in love with the surroundings and the characters (especially AIDAN!) I can't wait to read about Shawn and the Darcy is the next two books. It's the first one of Nora Roberts that I've ever read and I couldn't put it down. After reading this book, I know that Ireland is definitely a place a will visit one day.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A pleasant surprise! I received this book as a gift and did not expect much from it-- I did not even start reading it until months later, and what a pleasant surprise! I really enjoyed reading Jewels of the Sun and I especially liked the lively description of Ardmore- the town, the people and of course, the fairies. Very well-written and romantic, you don't want to miss this book and its sequels: Tears of the Moon and Heart of the Sea.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a Great Surprise. This is the first of Nora Roberts' books I have read and I could not put it down. The characters are so easy to relate to. Nora Roberts has managed to sweep the reader to an unknown place with people you've never met and all of a sudden you feel like you've been there and know all the characters. An excellent read.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Mesmerizing! This book was great..just like her other celtic books which i've read. This one though was much more to me because i have a good friend from backhome who is a Gallagher and the description of Aidan,Darcy and Shawn is so close. My friend's father is originally from Ireland and moved to Canada long time ago,and i know he will be thrilled to read this..this first book which i have read and loved..is on its way to them! I am definetly going out to buy the 2nd book this week!..thanks Diane

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jewels of the Sun This book was amazing, could not put it down. A definite feel good book. I love Nora Roberts' books but particulary this one as my boyfriend is from Ireland and reading this book made me want to visit Ireland all the more. I can't wait for the second in the trilogy, which I understand will be out in the next few weeks, early August.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Jewels in the Sun I have read many of the Nora Roberts Trilogy and I think this one will be another best seller. If you liked this one you might also like the inner harbour trilogy and the daring to dream trilogy. Two of my favourites.

From Our Editors

Jude Murray has essentially abandoned her old life. Leaving the Chicago suburbs and her broken marriage behind, she heads off to Ireland to the small coastal hometown of her grandfather, where she pledges to "find Jude F. Murray in six months or less." She ends up finding a lot more than herself, as she begins to discover the apparitions and faeries that riddle the area. To understand them, she turns to Aidan, the local bartender, who guides her to balance and peace. As Aidan and Jude draw closer, they begin to fill the questions that plague their lives. Jewels of the Sun is a haunting and seminally spiritual novel made vivid and vital by Nora Roberts’ characterizations.
