( 253 )

Overview

Frederica Kimball had been waiting all her life...waiting to grow up...waiting to become a woman...waiting for the day when Nicholas LeBeck would fall as desperately in love with her as she had always been with him.

Now, at last, she was ready!

Nick didn't know what hit him. Sweet, adorable Freddie, whom he'd always loved like a kid sister, was suddenly looking and acting like a woman--and what a woman! And she was making him feel things no ...

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.

    Old book, new cover

    This is an old book, with a new cover and re-released. I hate it when they do that! You get a few pages in and realize that you've read it already--money down the drain. Irritating.

    How to know if it is new....

    This author will have the "NR" logo on the front cover if it is a new publishing (usually located on the upper right hand corner). Without this logo, you can know it is a re-issue!

    Great read

    Always wonderful,what more can I say. I really enjoyed it. Nick from Falling for Rachel, from book 3 in the Stanislaskis series, is now all grown up and seeing him and Freddi Kimball coming together was all delightful. If you love Nora Robertrs you will like this book.

    I totally enjoyed it!

    This was a very good book. I enjoyed the plot - it held my interest all the way through. I am a fan of Nora Roberts and this was right up there within the realm of her style of writing. Good Characters, and heart twisting moments. I loved it. Five Stars! I also purchased THE CHATEAU by CD SWANSON...I discovered this book through friend's recommendations, and in order to get free shipping. I was NOT DISAPPOINTED! I LOVED IT!!!!!!! It was fast moving, an easy enjoyable read. The characters were likeable, and there were the usual villians...But overall, twists and turns and surprises galore. Great moments of suspense and heart pulling moments. FIVE STARS!!!! Highly recommentd both books!

    Unremarkable. Interesting family but romance lacks.

    The premise for this book looked very interesting, but the delivery failed. I guess I expected something different, another approach by Fred maybe. My vision of Nick after seeing the book cover along with the short summary was way off his character. There were a lot of family members involved in the story; they provided a few laughs and made the story interesting. I wanted the novel about the family instead of the romance between Nick and Freddie. I didn't get caught up in the romantic tension and frustration, maybe because the reasons why Freddie fell in love with Nick were never fully developed. It was mentioned as a childhood crush that didn't go away, his good qualities listed but never expanded on, nor no memories that built up to their relationship currently. So, Freddie came on too strong without a fully developed background which didn't make me care for her. Nick's lack of action was repetitive, which didn't engage me in his character neither. I ended up not caring whether or not the characters got together or how; the only thing that kept me going was the family interaction. This was definitely disappointing and not one of Roberts' best in the romance sector.
