"Four outstanding early Roberts tales"
Some of Nora Roberts' early works, the "Night" tales are
hard to find. You find them in secondary bookstores used --
maybe -- and for very high prices. Here you have all four
tales (four complete Silhouette novels) in one volume -
Night Shift, Night Shadow, Nightshade and Night Smoke.
They are some of the best of her early works and it's
great to get them all under one cover.
Night Shift has Detective Boyd Fletcher assigned to
protect Cilla O'Roarke. She is a nighttime talk Disc
Jockey at a local Denver radio station whose life has been
threatened. Cilla is a tough cookie, but even she knows
she needs Boyd's help. While being her bodyguard, Boyd
falls for her, which jeopardizes his objectivity he needs
to catch the psycho. But he cannot deny the attraction.
Night Shadow is Cilla's sister's story. Deborah O'Roarke.
Deborah is an assistant DA, and she gets into danger
because of the case she's involved in. Gage and his alter
ego Nemisis (think Daredevil with sight) see it as their
duty to protect the gusty DA. The Fantasy element in this
is outstanding and I love the strong leads.
Nightshade is the story of Boyd's ex-partner, Althea
Grayson (we met her as she helped Boyd protect Cilla in
Night Shift). She is an early Eve Dallas (...In Death
Series -- the "role" model for Eve?) a very independent
lass, who is a by the book cop. Sexy Colt Nightshade is a
Private Investigator who disdains rules, unless he makes
them up. They are both strong willed detectives with their
own methods, and naturally clash - on the streets and in
bed - as they are forced to work together to stalk a
Night Smoke sees Natalie Fletcher, Boyd's sister clash
with arson investigator, Ryan Piasecki. When several of
the buildings Natalie owns has fires, she and Ryan clash,
soon they are proving where there is smoke, there is
Four early Robert's tales guaranteed to delight her fans.
Simply great reading!
