A Stunning Story

Nora Roberts book, Irish Thouroughbred, was, without a doubt, one of the best romance novels I will ever read. She masterfully weaves the story of an Irish woman who has lost everything she has ever known and is coming to America to live with her uncle on a horse farm. I won't tell any more here, so you won't have the surprise spoiled (I hate it when people do that). You had better read this book!

I would have been pleased to write a review for Irish Thoroughbred, as I am both Irish, a lover of thoroughbreds and a Nora Roberts reader. I say I WOULD have been pleased to write had I been given the 17pg. sample that I was offered, and accepted.However what posed as a sample of the written book was nothing more than a LIST of published and planned works: no pages 1-17 of her writing nor book content. B&N... please give what you offer so that we may truly SAMPLE, hopefully enjoy, and then honestly review the book offered.NBC. Orange, CA. Avid reader,occasional writer, and new to all things ebook ~ except the written word. Thank you.

    While slightly dated, this book is a solid read. I read it in print years ago. Because it is Nora Roberts first published book, I bought it digitally for nostalgic reasons. My comments are mostly directed at the other reviewers....
    Why are any of you reviewing a book you haven't yet read? I understand the "sample" may have not been what you hoped--shame on BN for being lazy. However, the book review portion of this website is just that...for book reviews. Take your comments and suggestions about the website to BN's customers service and don't mess up the ratings systems please. Those of us who use the ratings system to list potential reads are not interested in your review of a sample or of the website. We're interested in thoughtful book reviews.
    Secondly, a year ago, I may have agreed with some of the comments about ebook publication dates not being clear when there is a reprint--but no longer and certainly not about Nora's books. She has posted a lot of info on her own website about reprints and ensure this information has been made available on her newest ebook reprints. Her ebook covers and descriptions now contain phrases like "Nora Roberts First Book" and "previously printed under xxx name or date or publisher." BN is only going to put the publication date of this version of the book under publication date. That is standard. Because there's no inner cover for us to read in an ebook, it is up to the buyer to do a minimal amount of research. Apparently it's not only BN who is lazy.

    Please fix sample!!!

    Would be great if sample actually let you read a "sample" of the book! It only let's you see the authors book list. You don't get to read a single page. Please fix!
