Night Shield (Night Tales Series #5)

( 13 )

Overview

Even though he agreed to protect her cover—even though her own dad vouched for him—Allison Fletcher refuses to be seduced by Jonah Blackhawk's smooth charm and good looks. She is too much of a cop to fall for a shady character like Jonah...even if her pulse does race at his touch!

If only she did't have eyes like prime whiskey and a smile that melted his insides. If only she weren't Boyd Fletcher's daughter. Jonah had never cared much for cops—until now. But Ally was definitely ...

Editorial Reviews

Chicago Tribune
Roberts has a warm feel for her characters and an eye for evocative detail.
Melinda Helfer
Rejoice, Nora Roberts fans, and rush out to buy Night Shield, a wonderful new entry in a favorite series. The detective daughter of a police commissioner tangles with a sexy sports bar owner when she goes undercover at his newest facility to catch a gang of thieves. Ms. Roberts can do more with the short series format than most authors can in a thousand pages, and the result, as always, is sheer entertainment perfection.
Romantic Times
Publishers Weekly
There's no mystery about why Roberts is a bestselling author of romances and mainstream novels: she delivers the goods with panache and wit.

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.

    GREAT SEREIS

    I love Nora Roberts. But I really love her series! This series was an easy read, fun group of books that I really enjoyed. You could read each of these on their own without reading the others, but it's fun to start with the first one and get to know the characters and follow them along as they change and grow.

    Great Read and a Hero You'll Want More Of

    If you like J.D. Robb (aka Nora Roberts) you will surely enjoy this book. A hero that you take into your heart and a heroine that has just enough sass to keep the reader and the hero on their toes. Pick up a copy,snuggle in and be prepared not to put the book down until you're finished. Enjoy.

    Night Shield

    Night Shield was one of the best books. The only thing that I would recommended is to read the other books in the series first and read Night Shield last instead of first.

    A great one sitting read!

    Everything Nora Roberts writes is GREAT! Night Shield is like a shorter version of Joe Matlock's THE DANCE, but with a cop and the damsel in distress.

    A perfect sequel

    I loved revisiting everyone from Night Tales. I hope Nora does more sequels from the other character's children.
