Maggie Concannon's story is brought to life in "Born in Fire," an audiobook written by the acclaimed American romance writer Nora Roberts.

From the sea-swept cliffs and lush green fields of Ireland comes a story listeners won't easily forget. The story is that of Maggie Concannon, a modern Irish lass with fire in her features, fire in her masses of russet-colored hair and a fire in her soul that must have an escape.

In Maggie's case, the outlet is her art, which has chosen her, rather than her choosing it. She blows glass art pieces out of the sand and rocks and chemicals of her native Ireland, art creations that are so beautiful they are highly sought after and highly prized.

Maggie, too, has been a child of fire since before her own birth. A passion, of sorts, ignited between an Irish dreamer and an Irish singer, a passion whose unholy passions created a child they called Margaret Mary. Like so many fires before, the passion of this forced and quickly forged marriage just as quickly died, evolving into a slow, seething rage within one parent and a stalwart devotion within the other. Throughout it all, Maggie endures childhood and enters young womanhood with confused, fearful perceptions concerning relationships, family, commitment and most of all, about the love between a man and a woman.

One of the top-selling authors worldwide, American romance writer Nora Roberts, has more than 400 million books in print. Roberts has lived in rural Maryland since 1972. It is here where she crafts her books, a modern blend of romance, intrigue, conflict, relationships and always, always a beautiful, capable, independent heroine fully intent on taking care of herself in a complex and demanding world.

"Born in Fire" is available in easily downloadable audiobook format from AudioBookstore.com. Narrated by the incomparable Fiacre Douglas, this unabridged version offers over nine hours of listening pleasure to those who download it or who purchase it on CD or make use of the streaming audiobooks feature.

Maggie Concannon is a glassmaker whose exquisite works are more than mere objects of beauty: they are reflections of her own true nature. One man has seen the soul in her art, and vows to help this complex woman build a lucrative career.

When gallery owner Rogan Sweeney comes to Maggie's isolated studio, her heart is enflamed by their fierce attraction - and her scarred past is slowly healed by a gentle and forgiving love. Download and start listening now!

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Dana Kennedy | 9/26/2013

    " I thought I would read a Nora Roberts book, as I had heard her name forever, and this particular series kept coming up. While the words flow quite well, I hated the main characters and didn't care in the slightest what happened to them. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Elisa | 8/28/2013

    " I'm a sucker for a book that will teach me something, and I love art, so a book that will teach me a thing or two about glass blowing is a gem. Not to mention that this novel truly brings Claire alive and Robert's paints an amazing portrait of western Ireland for someone who dreams (longs) to go. "
