Dark Witch by Nora Roberts

Sarah Broadhurst's view...

Back in the 13th century Sheena, a dark witch, is hunted by an evil Cahban wanting her powers. When she dies she gives her powers to her three children to carry forward to further generations. So begins this trilogy of witchcraft and romance. In the present day Iona comes to Ireland to meet up with her two cousins who are descendants of Sheena’s children. This is a very familiar formula for Nora Roberts which her fans will love. Newcomers to Nora are in for a treat. She writes fun, fast, totally unrealistic, escapist romps. You’ll love it.

If you like Nora Roberts you might also like to read books by Jane Lovering, Linda Gillard and Nicholas Evans.

Who is Sarah Broadhurst


Dark Witch by Nora Roberts

Three cousins inherit a gift that will transform their lives ...Iona Sheehan has just taken the biggest gamble of her life. Leaving her job, her home and her family in Baltimore, she has come to Ireland in search of adventure - and answers. Iona has always felt a powerful connection to the home of her ancestors. So when her beloved grandmother confesses an extraordinary family secret, she can't resist visiting County Mayo to discover the truth for herself. Arriving at the beautiful and atmospheric Castle Ashford, Iona is excited to meet her cousins, Connor and Branna O'Dwyer, for the first time. And when she lands a job at the local riding school she finds herself drawn against her will to its owner - the hot-tempered but charismatic Boyle McGrath. Perhaps in County Mayo she has found her true home at last. What Iona doesn't realise is that her cousins have been expecting her for a long time. Connor, Branna and Iona have all inherited a powerful but dangerous gift from an ancestor known as the Dark Witch. And they are about to discover that some old legends can return to haunt the present ...The first in a magical new trilogy, Dark Witch is a captivating story of love, family and destiny.
