Overview

She’d turned her back on glamour and fame and Kate Stanislaski Kimball had come home to begin a new life. The only thing more perfect than the beautiful—dilapidated—building she’d bought for her new dance school was Brody O’Connell, the frustrating, surprisingly fascinating contractor she’d hired for the renovation.

A man didn’t often come across a woman as gorgeous, sensuous, provocative...and utterly irritating as Kate. But Brody was determined to resist her effortless allure. She was Natasha Stanislaski’s pampered, perfect daughter, and not at all the right woman for him. But every fiber of his being longed to make her his....

Editorial Reviews

Very highly recommended

Professional ballet dancer Kate Stanislaski returns home to open the dance studio of which she's always dreamed. Tired of the harsh pace of dancing in New York, she's ready for the quite life. She didn't expect, however, to meet sexy Brody O'Connell in her mother's toy store almost as soon as she set foot in town. Nor did she expect to find their mutual attraction so powerful. Most men have taken a look at her delicate form and assumed romanticism and fragility. Seldom could they cope with what they really find—steel. Brody, however, is up to the challenge.

A widower, Brody's one priority for the last six years has been his son Jack. Fatherhood had "kicked the stuffing out of the arrogant, careless and often reckless boy. And it had made a man out of him." Soon he finds himself contracted to do the renovation on Kate's studio, and when he goes to the building, he sees Kate dancing inside. She absolutely dazzles him. Kate ignores Brody's protests that he's not interested in getting involved, intuiting where his real concerns lie. Brody might protest all he wants, but Kate gets what she wants. And she wants Brody has her husband and Jack as her son.

Rather than being put off by Brody's moods, Kate finds herself invigorated by the way he gets scowly and turned on at the same time—she believes it is both challenging and sexy. Kate gives as good as she takes, never hesitating to tell the director that he look like a pig, in the Ukrainian language, or Brody where to stuff it. She's accustomed to hard work, and doesn't shy away from darkened basements or the bottom line of a very expensive renovation, always keeping her eye on the goal. Indeed, Kate's fierce determination makes her character extraordinary and appealing. No self doubt for this powerful woman.

I'm blushing to admit this, but Considering Kate is the first novel I've read by Nora Roberts. Yes, I know she's one of the queens of romance, but this reviewer seldom reads by choice, instead I read what lands on my desk by request. After reading Considering Kate, however, I hereby consider myself an ardent fan and intend to spend more time on books by Nora Roberts! Roberts' independent and spirited characters, the wonderful Stanislaski family, and her sparkling narrative voice make this book a keeper. Very highly recommended.

Nora Robert's writing is just excellent. It's a wonderful story and both characters are so well put together. Love the series.

Not necessary to read the earlier books in the series because each of the books stand alone. Love the characters especially the strong women.

Considering Kate gave a wonderful finishing touch to the Stanislaski Family. I couldn't put it down. I wonder, and think it would be a great idea, if Nora will write a story about Kate's brother Brandon Kimball (and really finish the Stanislaski Family story). I love everything I've read so far by Nora Roberts. Keep on writing Nora!

I am a dancer who is part Ukrainian, so I had to buy this book when I saw it. I thought that the story was very sweet. I liked the characters very much and I thought Nora did a pretty ok job with Kate and what the attitude of a dancer and preformer for that matter, is like. A nice and easy read.

This is the first book by Nora Roberts I have read, but not the last! She knows how to keep you reading! I started reading it and couldn't put it down. This is the first book I have read from start to finish in a couple of hours.

I love this book, especially at the end. I think Jack is one of the cutest and smartest little boys with the way he thinks.
