Darcy Gallagher has always believed in the pull of fate, the magic of legend...and the importance of money. She longs to find a rich man who will sweep her away - into a world filled with glamour and adventure, and the exotic life that is her destiny. A wealthy businessman with Irish blood, Trevor Magee has come to Ardmore to build a theatre - and uncover the secrets hidden in his family's past. He thought he had given up on love long ago, but Darcy Gallagher tempts him like no woman ever has. She's gorgeous, intelligent, and she knows what she wants - and he's more than willing to give it to her. Darcy too can't deny her own feelings for the handsome American, though neither of them believes they have a real chance of finding lasting love without each other. Darcy knows what she wants from life, and she's not convinced that Trevor is the one. But the village of Ardmore has a way of weaving its magic over visitors and inhabitants, and the forces of destiny can only be resisted for so long...
