Dark Witch, by Nora Roberts

2013-11-18-dark-witch-by-nora-roberts

It's pointless to complain about repetitiveness in a Nora Roberts book. The woman has published over 200 novels; at this point I'm not sure if there's a romantic conflict out there she hasn't beaten to death. Certainly all the subjects in her latest novel Dark Witch are pretty shopworn—but if you're in the right mood, “shopworn” can translate to “enjoyable and comforting”...

The center will include support for a romance novel collection in the college library, the establishment of a minor in romance fiction, and an online graduate-level romance writing program, featuring PROFESSOR JENNY CRUSIE...

Practicing what she preaches

Nora Roberts has a new book out, and while I am (once again) suppressing my irritation over the $16 price tag, I was interested to learn that the story was directly inspired by the historic inn Ro...

2010-11-29-happily-ever-after-by-nora-roberts

Earlier this month, Nora Roberts released Happy Ever After, the final novel in her Bride Quartet. I've grown fonder of this series with each book, so I trotted out to my local bookstore—this ti...

Who knew she was dating Harry Potter?

Speaking of Nora Roberts' Bride Quartet, there's a game! It's an interactive "Hidden Objects" sort of deal, and apparently there will be separate games for each book in the series. Now, I'm not ...

You do have to admire her gall, though.

My, my. Whatever could this be? It appears to be a reprint (the one hundred and forty-seventh edition, I believe) of Nora Roberts's 1991 novel Genuine Lies, and it costs sixteen dollars. Are you k...

No. Just... no.

Nora Roberts usually has such nice (if forgettable) cover art, but this looks like something you'd see advertised as the entertainment at a mid-range Vegas hotel:I wonder what happened?

Tribute, by Nora Roberts

2009-04-13-tribute-by-nora-roberts

When I channel-flipped past Lifetime’s made-for-television adaptation of Nora Roberts’ novel Tribute a few days ago, I thought it looked ridiculous—the TV equivalent of spray-can cheese, with...

Oh, Lifetime, you crazy kids...

First of all, I have to apologize for the lack of updates last week. Nathan and I both came down with the colds from Hell (actually, we still have them), and Megan was off on vacation, so there wa...

For once...

I am happy to report that Nora Roberts's latest book (The Pagan Stone, the final book in her "Sign of Seven" trilogy) does NOT feature an obnoxiously smug heroine. This is quite an accomplishment ...
