I have almost all books from Nora Roberts and this one is very good.

This is one of a series about the Stanislaskie (sp?) family. They are fun reading. The only problem I have with Nora Roberts is I need to have a list of her books that I already have with me before I buy any, because they keep getting re-released. This is a case in point.

I downloaded this book to my nook, but have not read it because I realized that it was the fourth in a series and I can't seem to find the titles of one, two and three. Help!

This is the fourth book in the Stanislaski series.It could be my August TBR challenge book--there's a "Darla" in it. Bess's producer is named Darla. In fact, it's one of only two Darlas in Nora's books that is not a bimbo. (There are 6, I believe, or maybe 7, who are bimbos.) Alas, though, I'm not going to cheat. I read this in *wincing* June.Alex Stanislaski is a cop. Bess McNee is a soap opera writer. They meet when she's researching--posing as a prostitute to make sure the character she writes is realistic.This one had things I really liked & things I really disliked about it.The whole first chapter was fun, and really set up the characters. Bess was so excited about her research that being arrested and in jail didn't bother her at all.I thought the story line with Rosalie, the prostitute, was well-done, and heartbreaking. I wish we'd have seen a little more of what happened to her, though.It was so much fun to see Nick & Freddie, when you know the next book's about them.What bothered me about the story was that the conflict between Bess and Alex was his double-standard. At several points in the book, sometimes on the same page, he's cruel to her, telling her he doesn't want to hear her say she loves him because he won't believe her, and then he'll mention how he was such a ladies' man.More an attitude for the 50s or 60s, IMO---he said he didn't expect her to be a virgin, but that's exactly what he expected. Possibly that was pointing out his old-world origins, but I still think it was overdone. It just wasn't a big enough conflict to cover the whole book.I think it would have been a better book if Bess had been in danger.... although Nora may have been trying to avoid that cliche, which seems to happen in nearly every book where the hero's a cop, so she gets points for that. Maybe if Alex's objections to getting serious with Bess included her research---if he thought she didn't really love him because she was just using him for research---instead of focusing on her 3 or 4 (depending on who's counting) engagements.Still, I did thoroughly enjoy their story. Bess was a wonderful heroine. By which I probably mean that she accepted the dangers that go along with falling in love with a cop. I've read far too many heroines who start relationships with cops, then call it quits because they're afraid. Perfectly reasonable, of course, but it gets old when you read it in book after book. And I get so annoyed--they're like people who get this fabulous house really cheap because it's right next to the airport, then complain about the noise. Bess knew Alex was a cop, and she didn't ask him to change, or punish him for it.

Alex is a detextive, Bess is a script writer who he arests for soliciting while she's researching for her soap. Then she decides that he's perfect for her research on a police character.

Love this author, she can really write,with the greatest characters and a plot that never sags at the middle of the book. This female lead is one of her best coupled with a drop dead gorgeous cop. Need I say more? Just a hint ...this author also writes futuristic mystery novels under the name of J. D. Robb that are so good, you can't just read one!
