In Gallagher's Pub, where the fire is burning low and the pints are waiting, #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts has a story to tell...

Determined to reevaluate her life, Jude Murray flees America to take refuge in Faerie Hill Cottage, immersing herself in the study of Irish folklore and discovering hope for the future of the magical past.

Finally back home in Ireland after years of traveling, Aidan Gallagher possesses an uncommon understanding of his country's haunting myths. Although he's devoted to managing the family pub, a hint of wildness still glints in his eyes--and in Jude, he sees a woman who can both soothe his heart and stir his blood. And he begins to share the legends of the land with her--while they create a passionate history of their own.

Booklist Review: "In the first book of a new trilogy, Roberts takes her readers back to a favorite setting, Ireland, and brings the people and the magic of the country (both figuratively and literally) to life. Jude Murray, recently divorced and in need of solace, resigns her position as a psychology professor in Chicago and goes to Faerie Hill Cottage where her grandmother was raised. She wants to research legends and folktales, not knowing that she is about to become involved in one. The cottage is haunted by a ghost who cries over the love she refused, and both the ghost and her intended, the faerie prince, appear to Jude. Curiously, Jude seems destined to repeat the same mistake with Aidan Gallagher, a pub owner. He tells wonderful stories that help Jude heal, but they seem to have trouble communicating their feelings. Roberts' fans will thrill to these wonderfully drawn characters, their lush setting, and the faerie magic that guarantees an enchanting series. --Patty Engelmann"

Publisher's Weekly Review: "In her recent romance trilogies, Roberts (Carnal Innocence, etc.) has combined ghosts with lively humor and vivid sensuality. In this first volume of her newest series, Jude Murray, an American psychologist, has come to spend six months at Faerie Hill Cottage on the Irish coast to study Irish folklore and escape her dreary, uneventful life in Chicago. Faerie Hill is haunted by the 300-year-old ghost of Lady Gwen, who turned down the proposal of Carrick, king of the fairies, and is doomed to wander alone until three couples can find happiness. These three will include the engaging Gallagher siblings (Aidan, the eldest, Darcy and Shawn), who operate the local pub. Aidan, who senses the fire beneath Jude's controlled exterior, is smitten with the visiting American. His passion for her draws him away from his responsibilities at the pub as he share with her the lore of the land. Roberts, a storytelling wizard, is at her best here, creating a fantastic setting for the continuing romantic tales of the Gallaghers. (Nov.) (c) Copyright PWxyz, LLC. All rights reserved"
