She'd turned her back on glamor and fame and Kate Stanislaski Kimball had come home to begin a new life. The only thing more perfect than the beautiful - dilapidated - building she'd bought for new dance school was Brody O'Connell, the frustrating, surprisingly fascinating contractor she'd hired for the renovation.

A man didn't often come across a woman as gorgeous, sensuou

Último libro de la serie "Los Stanislaski".
Seis historias PRECIOSAS.
Una gran familia, encantadora y entrañable.
Y el sello inconfundible de Nora Roberts.
¡Un placer!

This is one of those "awww" type books - more sappy romance than anything else. I wouldn't want to read that type of story all the time, but it's nice once in a while. And I especially enjoyed it in this case because the book is a continuation of a series that I really enjoy.

One of my favorite parts of this book is the parallel that is created between the romance of Kate and Brody, and romance of Kate's mother and father, Natasha and Spence (Taming Natasha, Stanislaskis #1). The romances start o

li esta historia há já lagum tempo... sem me ter apercebido que afinal fazia parte de uma serie -
(Família Stanislaski), ou seja comecei exactamente pela ultima historia! :S

mas há parte de tudo isso, foi uma historia "fofinha" com alguma atitude dos personagens.... "quero mas nao sei se quero" ... :D
mas a protagonista acaba por vencer e convencer e tudo acaba bem com um "Happy Ending" amoroso!
(quando mete crianças ao barulho fica tudo tão mais docinho) heheheh

leitura bastante agradável e rapida,

Hated to see this wonderful series come to an end. I loved the entire series so much. Sweet, well written romance novel. I LOVE Nora Roberts books. She is one of the best writers I've experienced reading. I enjoy her writing style, and this book was so enjoyable from start to finish. Made me warm and fuzzy all over. The characters in all the Stanislaski books were so unique and made you want to be part of their family! I look forward to reading more of Nora Roberts because each one just keeps ge ...more

This is one of my favorites of Nora Roberts' old category romances. I listened to it this time in audio. The narration worked for me, appropriately capturing the characters' feelings and gender. Most particularly, the story still worked for me and I suspect I'll listen to it again in the future.
Author: Nora Roberts
First published: 2001
Length: ~2700 kindle locations
Setting: Contemporary. Shepherds town, West Virginia.
Sex: Explicit. Infrequent.
Hero: Single father. Carpenter.
Heroine: Prima Ballerina opening dance studio.

Easy read, nothing too dramatic. Single father not looking for a relationship and an independent, intelligent heroine who does the chasing. Nice character development. Good appearances from characters in previous books letting us see how they’ve gotten on (Rachel’s a judge

::4.5 stars:: but I am being generous and giving 5!
I was really kind of nervous to read this book. I loved Nick and Freddies story so much, and Kate was really the only character we didn't get to know very well before hand. So I was worried that this book wouldn't hold the candle to Nick and Freddie. Boy was I worrying over nothing!!
Right away I was in love with Kate and Brody and more importantly, with Jack.
Nora Roberts does a fantastic job writing her Male and Female main characters, but she

I really loved this book, as i did Waiting for Nick, but i loved Brody's connection with his son, and how above everything he wanted to protect him and put him first and Brody realized that Kate wanted the same thing. I loved how Kate pushed him, and then at the end they were both at the same place without even knowing it! I think my favorite part was when Jack proposed to Kate and how he wanted her to live with them and marry his dad and give him a baby sibling. I also loved how Kate proposed o ...more

Great book!! I really want to be part of the Stanislaski family. The best part of book was the marrige proposal from little Jack to Kate, it was so sweet and adorable! I like Brody, hes meticulous, careful and put his son's welfare first, a very admirable man. About Kate, she's a determinated woman and she knows what she wants but she's pushy and wants things to be on her own way, I think she should sit down and relax a little bit and have more patience.
But like I said before the star of the boo

Kate Stanislaski Kimball came home to begin a new life. The only thing more perfect than the beautiful, dilapidated building she'd bought for her new dance school is Brody O'Connell, the frustrating and fascinating contractor she's hired for the renovation. Brody knows Kate is the daughter of Natasha Stanislaski: pampered, perfect, and not at all the right woman for him. But he longs to make her his.

I am sad to see the last of the Stanislaski's ride into the sunset. Kate is the youngest daughter of Spence and Natasha. She has given up her life as a dancer as she wants to go back to her roots and start a dance school in her home town. She buys a large building, but it needs a lot of work, so enter Brody a single widower with a young son, Jack, and a builder too. I love the involvement of Jack in the story as it develops.

i thought it will bore the hell out of me for this is the first time i ever read a nora roberts that do not have a glimpse of suspense or mystery which im getting used to read from her. but dear, it stole my heart especially jack and most importantly the "will you marry us" part.
This was actually the first Stanislaskis book that I read and I thought it was wonderful. Kate and Brody made a wonderful couple and I just loved Jack. He was so precious. A really great read that avidly kept my interest.

I live to read Nora Roberts' romances between really long novels because they're easy and always have a happy ending. This book was wonderfully sweet, schmoopy and so good! A single father raising his son after the mothers death learns to live again. The little boy is so sweet!!!

3.5 enjoyed it probably because I enjoyed this serial family. Baby Kate all grown up and moving back to her home town and finds herself repeating her mothers' history (book 1 of this series). Not all of it, it had it's own unique moments. More like she falls for man with a child she adores.

Love this book, loved the series. Borrowed the book as an ebook from my local library, only to realise by page 5 that I read this book before. Remembered I love the book, so i decide to keep on going. I've read 3 books in the series, have 1 on hold and hopefully my library will get the last 2.

Story: Old favorite comfort read. Makes me happy. *warm fuzzies* *happy heart* 5 stars

Narration: Good basic narrative, acceptable to good to great voices (female voices better), pretty good accents. Only a couple of funny intonations. 3.5-4 stars

I've really fallen for this entire series, it's more lighthearted and less repetitive than some other series by NR. This was just a cute, fun romantic read- and sometimes, that's what you need.
Seriye çok güzel bir final... İlk kitapta yaşananlara benzer şeyler yazmak bence çok zekice, bu serisiyle yazara bir kere daha hayran oldum.

A typical read from Nora Roberts, a look into the lives of a not so typical family and as always with the hero's riding off into the sunset!

Once upon a time, some 25 years ago, when I was a teen and read a lot of romance novels, I remember reading a few Nora Roberts books and enjoying them.

Although I love romantic stories, I rarely read genre romance novels now because I find them too sappy, predictable and unchallenging. But as an author, I was “researching” the genre and decided who better to look at than one of the most prolific and successful romance novelist. I also enjoy dancing and have been taking an adult beginner ballet c

Kate Stanislaski Kimball is home from a profitable career in dance. Ballet has been her passion since childhood and now she wants to teach. She's picked out the perfect building. All it needs is some love and a lot of renovations. After a chance meeting with her mothers contractor, Body O'Connell, Kate has decided that ballet isn't her only passion.

She's pampered, spoiled and a socialite--plus, the last thing a widowed single dad needs. Except, he craves her. Kate's beautiful, irritating, and a
I am not going to review every Nora Roberts book that I have read in the past because she is quite prolific and it would get redundant and I honestly cannot remember all the plots. I think someone finds someone else attractive but at least one cannot admit it so there is sexual tension, then lots of sex, and then they live happily ever after? Sometimes there is some magic , a family legacy, or a mystery. Certainly not great works of literature (however still 100% better than “the grapes of wrath ...more

this book was very good but it sort of faded into the background of the stanislaski series. kate was a very likeable character her stubbornness was entertaining but always the right tone for the storyline. she didnt really have depth the way the other heroines did...her background as far as we know is perfectly stable with no major upsets which is frankly kinda boring. brody was sweet and sexy and a decent hero but he was far too much of a worrywart for my tastes. he was a very good dad though w ...more
