Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
The Barnes & Noble Review
Nora Roberts uncovers secrets, deception, and unexpected passion in this trio of romantic suspense novels. Unavailable for the past few years, these three classics -- Partners, The Art of Deception, and Night Moves -- pay tribute to Roberts's powerful storytelling. In Partners, two reporters who are antagonists investigate a murder in steamy New Orleans, even as they uncover their mutual chemistry. In The Art of Deception, it's hard to tell who's the best at deception -- alleged artist Adam Haines, gorgeous sculptor Kirby Fairchild, or her father, a legendary artist. In Night Moves, Maggie Delaney, celebrated Hollywood songwriter, moves to a small town for some peace and solitude, only to dig up a skeleton in her backyard. Landscaper Cliff Delaney stands ready to help Maggie solve a ten-year-old murder even as he reworks her property -- and her somewhat jaded approach to love. Ginger Curwen

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.

    NOT NORA ROBERTS BEST

    PARTNERS IS A SO-SO MYSTERY. THE REAL KILLER IS A SURPRISE BUT NOT A VERY INTERESTING STORY. NOT MUCH CHARACTER DEVELOPMENT.

    DO NOT READ

    No passion. No chemistry. Not even a spark! Very surprised and upset with all 3 stories in this book. After reading 'Love by Design' which I loved, Nora Roberts became my new favorite romance writer. But, this book has left me undecided. I will give Nora Roberts one more try...I need passion and chemistry in romance!

    Wonderful!

    Enjoyed this book from start to finish. Roberts is a consummate storyteller and the prose reminded me of another great romantic/suspense writer, Sherry A Mauro.
