Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Fans of New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts will find double the pleasure when they pick up a copy of The Stanislaski Brothers, two complete novels in one volume. Each story highlights one of the brothers in the tempestuous but loving Stanislaski family, immigrants from the Ukraine. The first novel, Luring a Lady, pairs the eldest Stanislaski brother, carpenter and woodcarver Mikhail, with a rich ice princess, Sydney Hayward. Then things get mixed up and fixed up for police officer Alexi Stanislaski, who finds himself both annoyed and intrigued by a vivacious and irrepressible soap opera writer in Convincing Alex.

After the death of her grandfather, Sydney Hayward finds herself in charge of the family business. Not only must she deal with her grief, she must face down the threats and taunts of the man who thought he’d be sitting in Sydney’s place. Then a dark-haired stranger shows up in her office, complaining about the long-overdue repairs in the building Sydney now owns, where he and a dozen or so other tenants live. At first Sydney is inclined to simply add the man’s complaints to her ever-lengthening list of things to do. But something about this handsome stranger draws her in. Soon she finds herself falling in love, but because of a disaster in her past, she’s afraid to confront the truth in her heart.

In "Convincing Alex," policeman Alex Stanislaski is chagrined to discover that the hooker he has arrested is actually Bess McNee, a writer on a popular soap opera who is doing some “research” for one of her characters. Bess has an enthusiasm for life and an insatiable curiosity that Alex finds both alluring and irritating. And when Bess becomes entangled in Alex’s investigation into a series of murders, things heat up on several fronts as Alex’s stubborn nature and Bess’s indomitable spirit clash. Only after experiencing the terrible pain of loss can they hope to find happiness together.

Romance fans will no doubt delight in the conquering of the seemingly hardened Stanislaski hearts and the steamy results that occur thereafter. There are sparks aplenty in both tales to light some very heated fires as Roberts delivers her trademark mix of irresistible romance and sizzling suspense. And if the tales of the Stanislaski brothers leave readers wanting more, never fear. There’s always the saga of The Stanislaski Sisters, Rachel and Natasha, to keep those fires burning. (Beth Amos)

Beth Amos is the author of several novels, including Second Sight, Eyes of Night, and Cold White Fury.

Chicago Tribune
Roberts has a warm feel for her characters and an eye for evocative detail.

    Wonderful

    I just read about the Stanislaski Brothers and loved it. Nora Roberts is a very talented writer. You come away from the book wishing you had these two either as a brother or husband. Great details and wonderful humor. Can't wait to read the next books about the Stanislaski family.

    Predictable and routine

    Although the romantic sections were pretty steamy, it seemed to me that the target audience would be teenage girls.I was hoping for a plot that was a bit more intellectual.

    Heartwarming

    What a great story of romance. Nora Roberts makes you feel as if you are right there visualizing it. Alexi and Mikhail are wonderfully romantic. I can't wait to read the sisters saga, even though that was out first.
