206 – Born in Fire (Born In #1) by Nora Roberts

Born in FireI saw this book at Target a couple months ago and it sounded like one I’d like.  I couldn’t pass up the price since it was super on sale, too.  Here’s the Goodreads summary:

Born in Fire is the first novel in the Irish Born Trilogy, about three modern sisters bound by the timeless beauty of Ireland from #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts.

The eldest Concannon sister, Maggie, is a reclusive, stubborn and free-spirited glassmaker—with a heart worth winning…

Margaret Mary, the eldest Concannon sister, is a glass artist with an independent streak as fierce as her volatile temper. Hand-blowing glass is a difficult and exacting art, and while she may produce the delicate and the fragile, Maggie is a strong and opinionated woman, a Clare woman, with all the turbulence of that fascinating west country.

One man, Dublin gallery owner Rogan Sweeney, has seen the soul in Maggie’s art, and vows to help her build a career. When he comes to Maggie’s studio, her heart is inflamed by their fierce attraction—and her scarred past is slowly healed by love.”

This was a cute story with a lead female that I really liked. I also enjoyed how Nora Roberts brought in such detail regarding glass-blowing. It was great getting to see the creative process as performed by Maggie, the lead.

The story was a typical Roberts romance, but I still liked it. I look forward to reading the next two books in this trilogy.
