Careful to conceal her true identity, she takes a job as a cook at the local bookstore café - and begins to explore her feelings for the island sheriff, Zack Todd.But there is a part of herself she can never reveal to him - for she must continue to guard her secrets if she wants to keep the past at bay. One careless word, one misplaced confidence, and the new life she's so carefully created could shatter completely.Just as Nell starts to wonder if she'll ever be able to break free of her fear, she realizes that the island suffers from a terrible curse - one that can only be broken by the descendants of the Three Sisters, the witches who settled the island back in 1692.Now, with the help of two other strong, gifted women - and the nightmares of the past haunting her every step - she must find the power to save her home, her love...and herself.

Sweet Romance with a Touch of Magic

STORY - Dance Upon the Air reminds me a lot of the Julia Roberts movie Sleeping with the Enemy. Not the same, of course, but there are a lot of similarities. It is a small town contemporary romance that has an undertone of danger and a dabbling in witchcraft. The romance is engaging, and the impending danger will keep you on your toes. Nell and Zack are strong, smart, likeable characters, and I enjoyed hearing their relationship progress. As always, Nora Roberts' sex scenes are tastefully described but still very passionate. I enjoyed this book a lot, but I've gotten very stingey with my 4's and 5's so I've just rated it a 3.

NARRATOR - Good job but nothing special. Zack's voice was a bit nasally, but way better than a lot of men's voices done by women (and vice versa).

OVERALL - I would definitely recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a good "clean" romance. If you are looking for lots of hot sex, you should probably skip this one.

Good Romance, Not So Good Narration

Unlike some of the other reviewers here, I was not impressed with the narrator. She reads well, but her character voices are honestly terrible. Of the three lead women in their 20s, one sounds like a little girl, another like an old lady, and the third has a nasally voice that borders on whiny. The love interest of the main character has a wooden tone with no inflection in it whatsoever, and the few other men in the book all have the exact same voice. Listen to the sample for a long time before you decide to buy this one. However, the book itself is a good romantic fantasy, and after awhile, the story was strong enough to overshadow the weak narration.
