Meet the Author

Nora Roberts
One of the most prolific and popular writers in the world, Nora Roberts (who also writes as her edgier alter-ego J. D. Robb) publishes multiple books a year. Not that it’s enough for her fans, who tear through her unconventional romances. With her trademark mix of fantasy, mystery, and romance, Roberts has created her own genre -- and romance fans are grateful for it!

Biography

Not only has Nora Roberts written more bestsellers than anyone else in the world (according to Publishers Weekly), she’s also created a hybrid genre of her own: the futuristic detective romance. And that’s on top of mastering every subgenre in the romance pie: the family saga, the historical, the suspense novel. But this most prolific and versatile of authors might never have tapped into her native talent if it hadn't been for one fateful snowstorm.

As her fans well know, in 1979 a blizzard trapped Roberts at home for a week with two bored little kids and a dwindling supply of chocolate. To maintain her sanity, Roberts started scribbling a story -- a romance novel like the Harlequin paperbacks she'd recently begun reading. The resulting manuscript was rejected by Harlequin, but that didn't matter to Roberts. She was hooked on writing. Several rejected manuscripts later, her first book was accepted for publication by Silhouette.

For several years, Roberts wrote category romances for Silhouette -- short books written to the publisher's specifications for length, subject matter and style, and marketed as part of a series of similar books. Roberts has said she never found the form restrictive. "If you write in category, you write knowing there's a framework, there are reader expectations," she explained. "If this doesn't suit you, you shouldn't write it. I don't believe for one moment you can write well what you wouldn't read for pleasure."

Roberts never violated the reader's expectations, but she did show a gift for bringing something fresh to the romance formula. Her first book, Irish Thoroughbred (1981), had as its heroine a strong-willed horse groom, in contrast to the fluttering young nurses and secretaries who populated most romances at the time. But Roberts's books didn't make significant waves until 1985, when she published Playing the Odds, which introduced the MacGregor clan. It was the first bestseller of many.

Roberts soon made a name for herself as a writer of spellbinding multigenerational sagas, creating families like the Scottish MacGregors, the Irish Donovans and the Ukrainian Stanislaskis. She also began working on romantic suspense novels, in which the love story unfolds beneath a looming threat of violence or disaster. She grew so prolific that she outstripped her publishers' ability to print and market Nora Roberts books, so she created an alter ego, J.D. Robb. Under the pseudonym, she began writing romantic detective novels set in the future. By then, millions of readers had discovered what Publishers Weekly called her "immeasurable diversity and talent."

Although the style and substance of her books has grown, Roberts remains loyal to the genre that launched her career. As she says, "The romance novel at its core celebrates that rush of emotions you have when you are falling in love, and it's a lovely thing to relive those feelings through a book."

Good To Know

Roberts still lives in the same Maryland house she occupied when she first started writing -- though her carpenter husband has built on some additions. She and her husband also own Turn the Page Bookstore Café in Boonsboro, Maryland. When Roberts isn't busy writing, she likes to drop by the store, which specializes in Civil War titles as well as autographed copies of her own books.

Roberts sued fellow writer Janet Dailey in 1997, accusing her of plagiarizing numerous passages of her work over a period of years. Dailey paid a settlement and publicly apologized, blaming stress and a psychological disorder for her misconduct.

    Her best trilogy YET!!

    Nora Roberts does it again! This author never ceases to amaze me with her ability to paint a picture so true and real and detailed, that it feels like a memory of my own rather than someone else's. The saga of the Donovan cousins has everything you could want: love, humor, suspense, and best of all, magic. This is a great read for anyone who likes to leave their world occasionally and escape to a place of faerie mounds, good witches, and healing powers.

    Wonderful!!!

    The plot is wonderful and the character descriptions are captivating. I've read most of her work but this takes the cake. Entranced remains interesting even after you know the end, and charmed shows a real sense of empathy with the characters.

    Not great

    I started reading Nora Roberts after The Reef was released and have loved all her newer books, but this was disapponting.I'd recommend skipping this book and reading the Three Sisters Island Trilogy instead.

    Lose yourself in the magic!

    Normally a scholarly reader, I relish my time with Nora Robert's novels. This trilogy was wonderful! I liked it almost as much as the Three Sister's Island Trilogy. The Donovan Legacy is well written, romantic and wonderfully magical. Pick it up and lose yourself.

    ENCHANTING AND MYSTICAL

    I have only recently started reading books by Nora Roberts and let me just say she has me hooked. I absolutly loved THE DONAVAN LEGACY. I felt it was a true fairytale. I loved all of the characters in all of the individual stories of their lives. I also reccomend ENCHANTED. It is somewhat a continuation of the Donavans. (It's about their distant cousin.) All stories have just enough of everything you are looking for....danger, romance, laughter.

    Great Magical Fairy Tale for Present Day

    I love this book. The character had lots of humor and fun even to their serious side. For those of you who love fairy tales and Nora Roberts books, this is a great book to read. For those who read it and don't like it, well all I can say is get an imagination! They forget, it's only a story and this is what make Ms. Roberts a great writer. I have only started reading her books this year and love everything I've read especially the Dononvan Legacy. The relationship between the cousins is close and loving. I do hope she will write a sequel to these characters, I think they were fun.

    Loved it first time...........

    Bought it when it came out as a three part series, and now replacing it all these years later, and as a person following The Craft, I find the book both entertaing and so much right on course, Ms. Roberts has done her homework on these subjects.

    Donovan's...Don't Bother!

    Let me start by saying that I am a huge Nora Roberts fan, but the re-release of the Donovan Legacy books have caused me to wonder how she became one of the bestselling authors today. Let's face it, all her books are predictably 'happily ever after' and that's what we're looking for from Ms. Roberts, but the Donovan Legacy books (especially Enchanted) are just plain silly! Without giving anything away, focus on the way the women behave in the beginning and how they change at the end (Stepford Wives???). Skip the re-releases, they're 10 to almost 20 years old, and don't stand the test of time. Concentrate on the newer novels, they're wonderful bits of escapism and pure pleasure. Just one more thing...Nora, if you're listening, for the love of Finn, enough Irish books!!!

    don't race for this one

    the donovan legacy is not one of robert's best. unlike her other novels, i felt i was living on the outside of this book, rather than inside of it. i admired how close the cousins were, but would not recomend this book to others.

    This has got to be one of Nora Robert best.

    I love all of Nora Robert work, but these three stories are very different. The blend of modern magic and passion will not let you put this one down. If you read and love Captivated, Entranced and Charmed. You must read Enchanted.
