Overview


From #1 New York Times bestselling author Nora Roberts comes The Stars of Mithra trilogy, a collection of classic stories about three strong heroines and the three priceless gems that are destined to change their lives—and their hearts—forever.

Diamonds can be a girl's best friend…or her worst enemy.

Hidden Star
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 private eye Cade Parris to help her find out just what kind. Surely she wasn't a criminal—but then what on earth was she doing with a bag full of cash and a stunning blue diamond as big as a baby's fist?

Captive Star
Someone had set them both up. Now, handcuffed together, bounty hunter Jack Dakota and bail jumper M. J. O'Leary were on the run from a pair of hired killers. And M.J. wasn't talking—not even when Jack found a gigantic blue diamond hidden in her purse. Everything told Jack the sexy skip he'd been hired to recover couldn't be trusted…everything, that is, but his heart.

Secret Star
He was standing face-to-face with a woman he'd believed to be dead…and she was holding a gun. Lieutenant Seth Buchanan's homicide investigation was thrown into turmoil when Grace Fontaine turned up very much alive—and in possession of one of the huge blue diamonds known as the Stars of Mithra. Seth had always made a point of not letting his personal feelings affect his work…but he was beginning to recognize that no mystery could ever be as compelling as Grace herself.

Meet the Author


Nora Roberts is a bestselling author of more than 209 romance novels. She was the first author to be inducted into the Romance Writers of America Hall of Fame. As of 2011, her novels had spent a combined 861 weeks on the New York Times Bestseller List, including 176 weeks in the number-one spot. Over 280 million copies of her books are in print, including 12 million copies sold in 2005 alone.


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.

    Reading Order

    While I really enjoyed this collection, I wish I had paid attention to the order of books in the synopsis because they are out of order in the collection. Captive Star should be read second, with Hidden Star first.

    The only way to read Nora Roberts with a box set.

    One can read Nora Roberts and keep on going. One doesn't have to search for the next one on in the series and it keeps the happiness flowing.

    Loved it

    I really enjoyed this trilogy. I read them one right after the other so it was just like reading a full length novel. I would have hated buying each book as it came out because Books 1 & 2 kinda left you hanging. I thought I had read everything Nora Roberts ever wrote but somehow I missed these books. I'm really happy that I found them. They were exciting, romantic and had just a little touch of magic. Loved all six main characters and really, really hated the villain. Great buy!!

    This offering is a very early Nora Roberts trilogy that I read a long time ago. It’s about three huge blue diamonds, the women who are entrusted to them and the men to help. There’s greed, attempted murder, and a lot of other bad things happening. Ultimately, the stones are returned to where they belong. The author has a real gift at weaving her relationships between the main characters together. These are fun books well worth reading again.

    Nora Roberts is an one of a kind author. I have read a lot of her books and loved them all. This Trilogy Stars of Mithra was different and very entertaining. She always comes up with something so compeling you can't stop reading or thinking about it until the end. Then you want another one.

    Great books! Highly Recommend them!

    I have found a new author to read! If you like Jude Devereaux, you will like Nora Roberts, too. Good characters, and fast moving plots. I am glad that I got the box set. All 3 books are connected.

    Four Stars Avery good read

    Light reading with a touch of mystery and a lot of romance.
    I liked each story. The last one a little less than the first. Each set of couples were pair up according to temperament. The reading was smooth and it flowed, no spots that were boring. I am not a devoted Nora Roberts fan; I read her when something catches my interest. I truly enjoyed reading the Stars of Mithra.
