Overview

She couldn't remember a thing, not even who she was. But it was clear Bailey James was in trouble. Big trouble! And she desperately needed Cade Parris to help her live long enough to find out just what kind.

The moment the coolheaded private eye laid eyes on the fragile beauty, she almost had him forgetting who he was. If Bailey was a criminal, Cade would eat his P.I. license. But what was she doing with a satchel full of cash and a diamond as big as a baby's fist? And how could...

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.

    Please list if book is reprint or re-issue!!!

    Just a bit irritated that I purchased all three of this series without knowing that they were originally released over 10 years ago. I didn't recognize the details and it only listed one publish date, imagine my dismay when I started reading them and I had read them before. Very disappointed that there was nothing in the descriptions to suggest a reprint!! Guess I have to do my own research now before buying any of Roberts work. Not cool after money is already spent.

    Good read!!!!!

    Ive read almost all of Nora Roberts books, so I was very much looking forward to this series, I really enjoyed this first book, I do however think at only 158 pages, all three books could have been combined into one book, but it was a very good read, and I will be reading all three!

    Liked mystery part of story...but not the story itself.

    The mystery part of the story was fascinating and intriguing. It came along nicely. I did not like the personal relationship between the main characters. It just didn't seem right to me. I actually started skipping over the intimate scenes because I felt like it was just wrong to read them. This is actually the first book of Nora Roberts that I will give less than a 4.5 star. I will not read the second or third book of this series.

    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

    ENJOYED THIS 1st BOOK OF A 3 BOOK SERIES SO MUCH THAT I PURCHASED BOOK 2 & 3 AS SOON AS I FINISHED IT. NORA ROBERTS HAS A WAY MAKING YOU THINK YOU KNOW EACH MEMBER OF HER CAST. SHE THROWES IN TWISTS AND TURNS SO IT IS HARD TO ANNTISIPATE WHAT HAPPENS NEXT. I FINISHED BOOK 2 FAST JUST SO I COULD GET TO BOOK 3.
