Featured Author: Nora Roberts
Nora Roberts has had more bestsellers than anyone in the world, according to Publisher's Weekly. Roberts is an extraordinary romance novelist.
Nora Roberts was born in Silver Spring Maryland, the youngest of five children. She married young and settled in Keedysville, Maryland.
She worked briefly as a legal secretary. After her sons were born she stayed home and tried every craft that came along. A blizzard in February 1979 forced her hand to try another creative outlet. She was snowed in with a three and six year old with no kindergarten respite in sight and a dwindling supply of chocolate.
Born into a family of readers, Nora had never known a time that she wasn't reading or making up stories. During the now famous blizzard, she pulled out a pencil and notebook and began to write down one of those stories. It was there that a career was born. Several manuscripts and rejections later, her first book, Irish Thoroughbred, was published by Silhouette in 1981.
Nora met her second husband, Bruce Wilder, when she hired him to build bookshelves. They were married in July 1985. Since that time, they've expanded their home, traveled the world and opened a bookstore together.
Nora is a member of several writers groups and has won countless awards from her colleagues and the publishing industry. (Reprinted from Noraroberts.com)
Engaging the Enemy
Two complete novels by Nora Roberts:
A Will and a Way: It wasn't easy living with her infuriating co-beneficiary, Michael Donohue -- even to fulfill her uncle's last wishes -- but headstrong Pandora McVie found it still harder not falling in love with her nemesis.
Boundary Lines: Feisty Jillian Baron and irresistibly arrogant Aaron Murdock seemed determined to carry their families' feud into another generation. But the battle waged within their own hearts pitted their mistrust against overwhelming desire.
Sea Swept is the first book in the Sea Swept Trilogy by Nora Roberts. Sea Swept is about three men reunited at home by their adoptive fatherís death and last wish-- to care for Seth, their troubled 10-year-old adoptive brother. The three men are taught about family and responsibility even more than they ever dreamed possible.
Cameron, Ethan, and Philip are very different, and of course, the brothers don't know anything about caring for a young boy. Social worker Anna Spinelli thinks this means Seth will be better off elsewhere, and as she works toward this end, she finds herself beginning to fall for one of the brothers.
Rising Tidesis the second in Robertsínewest trilogy. In this novel, Ethan is the main focus. He is determined to make a success out of the boatbuilding business. Boats were his fatherís passion. Ethan comes to many revelations about the woman that he has always loved and the dark past that he thought he left behind. If he can let go of that past, he can ensure a happy future. This book had me on the edge of my seat. I couldnít wait to get my hands on number three in the trilogy. (JR)
Inner Harbor, Book Three in the Seaswept Trilogy, finds Philip, the last unwed Quinn brother, juggling his advertising job and helping to care for his young adopted brother, Seth. Then the mysterious Dr. Sybill Griffin shows up. She claims to be researching their town for her next book, but it becomes apparent that she is really studying the three brothers.
Phillip and Sybill find each other intriguing, but the secret connection to Seth that she hides may destroy any chance that the two young lovers have at happiness. "Full of heartwarming familial moments, tender romance, and a touch of tension, Inner Harbor is an outstanding conclusion to a truly stunning trilogy." (Excerpt Reprinted from Amazon.com Reviews.)
