Image of Dark Witch (Cousins O'Dwyer)

Megastar Roberts kicks off her lively and entertaining paranormal romance trilogy set in modern-day Ireland but with dark connections to the past. The blood ties of three cousins will be needed to fight an ancient evil that haunts the descendants of legendary dark witch Sorcha. Roberts has these trilogies down to a science, always delivering just the right amount of romance, character drama and action.

To save her children, powerful witch Sorcha sacrificed herself in an attempt to destroy the evil that is Cabhan. Sadly, Cabhan was not fully destroyed and now, centuries later, he is once again attacking Sorcha’s descendents. Iona Sheehan grew up having heard the stories of Sorcha from her grandmother, and knowing she has a special connection to horses, but it is not until Iona visits Ireland that she understands her destiny. In County Mayo, Iona meets her cousins, Branna and Connor O’Dwyer, and learns that Cabhan’s evil is again trying to manifest. Knowing her place is now in Ireland, Iona gets a job at Boyle McGrath’s stable. Boyle is well aware of the magic in the O’Dwyer line and soon finds himself drawn to Iona despite the danger.
