Nora Roberts is like comfort food for me. I’ve read most of her books at least once, and there are a few that I enjoy re-reading! Like most of Nora Roberts books, the plot is somewhat predictable and uncomplicated. But, I supposed, as with most books in the romance genre, that’s why we read them!
Re-reading this book in December was a bit of an escape for me. Life was extraordinarily busy, and this book specifically gave me a beautiful place to escape to. A good bit of the book is spent in the mountains of Colorado during the winter, and the hero and heroine are both escaping from their own troubles. So, I suppose I could relate even though my “troubles” were very different from theirs.
If you enjoy romance, the expectation of happily-ever-after, and an enjoyable hero and heroine, you’ll enjoy this offering from Nora Roberts. It gives you enough complication to keep the storyline interesting without making it tense or burdensome.
Or, if you are looking for an escape into the snowy moutains of Colorado for a brief time, this is the book for you!
This book is the second in the Mercenary Maidens series. I’m typically not a huge historical fiction fan, but I am really enjoying this series. The women are strong, clever and daring. The men are of course handsome and strong, but they are also human with faults and emotions.
This series takes place in the UK in the 1600’s. Women are recruited to be spies and they are very good at what they do! I got caught up in the adventure and storyline very quickly and had a hard time putting it down!
