This book is a compilation of three of NR's stories.Tonight and Always is about Kasey, a Native American anthropologist, and Jordan, a writer who needs Kasey's expertise. Jordan is rich rich rich, and while Kasey's background is certain wealthy, she basically shunned that portion of her family. While I enjoyed the story, it wasn't well-written. It was obvious that this was one of NR's earlier works. Things happened too quickly; there wasn't nearly as much development; it just wasn't smooth like you expect of NR. Some of the plot devices were not complex. But it was a cute story.A Matter of Choice involves NYPD Detective Sladerman ("Just call me Slade"), who has been told to go baby-sit the Commissioner's goddaughter Jessie, an exuberant woman who runs an antique shop suspected in a smuggling ring. In terms of mechanics, this was a better story than the previous one. Things followed what could easily have been a natural course. You could easily have seen all of it happening. And when Jessie screwed with things again and again....yeah, I got frustrated with Slade. It was a good story, and it flowed nicely.Endings and Beginnings is about two reporters who find love. Thorpe is the big shot, and he's been in love with Liv, the underdog, for over a year before he makes his move. It took me a long while to get into this story; I didn't like either main character much at all. He was too arrogant; she was too skittish. But in the last third of the book, I fell, if not in love, then in like with the story. It was well-written, things flowed, and you were pulled into Liv's personal pain and really understood her at the end.All in all, it was a decent compilation of stories by NR. I enjoyed reading it, though I don't know that I would ever really read them again or own the book myself.

A good series of books; my favorite one is tonight and always, it made me cry.

A good story to while away a lazy afternoon. The characters square each other off nicely in opposition as Liv fights weakly against TC's growing attraction to her, before revealing a heartbreaking secret from her past.
