Nora Roberts is the New York Times bestselling author of more than one hundred and fifty novels. Under the pen name J. D. Robb, she is author of the New York Times bestselling futuristic suspense series, which features Lieutenant Eve Dallas and Roarke.
It's not just a sure-fire formula that's kept the crown atop the queen of romance, as this thriller proves. The gushy love-conquers-all story of South Dakota wildlife biologist Lil Chance and ex-cop/PI Coop Sullivan takes a back seat to the taut, gritty chase of a serial killer. There's never a doubt that Lil and Coop-childhood sweethearts who fall in love, drift apart and then reconnect-will help each other mend their wounded hearts: "It was a good day, she thought, when you opened yourself to both the joys and the risks of love," Lil discovers. Nor is it surprising that a crazed killer will meet his match in feisty Lil. But this premier storyteller proves an ordinary love story can still win your heart, and even an inevitable confrontation may scare you silly. (July) Copyright 2009 Reed Business Information.
