Marine archeologist Tate Beaumont has a passion for treasure-hunting. Over the years, she and her father have uncovered many fabulous riches, but one treasure has always eluded them: Angelique’s Curse—a je ...more
The chemistry between Matthew and Tate was sweet (as young adults) and then evolved into something fiery and substantial after they re-united (not without drama along the way, of course).
I liked both Matthew and Tate individually, as well as a couple, and enjoyed reading about their lives during their time apart. I thought this gave a lot of depth to their characters.
I enjoyed the twist(s) in the story at the end (Go Teams Bea ...more

I have read some Nora Roberts in my day and this was definitely one of my least favorite. Well, of course I had to finish it. I mean, it's so easy to read and I bought the freaking book. But most Nora Roberts books, I want to go back and re-rea ...more
The young adult love of Tate and Matthew tears your heart out, especially after all that Matthew has had to live through. To have their dream of the Marguerites' treasure and happily ever after torn apart by one of NR's nastiest villains, Silas Vandyke, really made the first part of the b ...more
A sinopse que é apresentada na contracapa não corresponde, na minha opinião, à estória que encontramos no livro. Pela minha leitura, a interpretação que faço é que não era Tate que andava atrás da Maldição de Angelique e sim o Matthew e o seu tio Buck! Ele ...more
Este é um livro que, na minha opinião deve ser lido numa altura especifica do ano - Verão.
Com todas as fantásticas descrições que a autora faz das praias e dos sitios onde os Beaumonts e os Lassiters atracam os seus barcos, dá vontade de ir dar um mergulho quando terminamos de ler determinado capitulo.
A história em si tem um començo um tanto abrupto mas que logo é compensado, aquando do meio do livro, o cas ...more
Adorei o ambiente do livro, mas faltou originalidade à intriga... pareceu-me uma junção de clichés... o vilão foi do mais banal e previsível que li nos últimos anos :(
Um bom livro para ler na praia, mas longe de ser o melhor de N. Roberts.
3 estrelas só pelo ambiente e porque adoro mergulho. As partes de 'caça ao tesouro' foram muito interessantes, o romance... meah... e a intriga pareceu uma colagem de estereótipos.
Espero ter u ...more

Who doesn't believe in curses? The Reef was about Angelique's Curse. You can choose to believe in curses or not. Some of the characters went back and forth with the idea. I believe in curses and things that can't be explained. It makes life interesting!

“You didn't give me up,” she tossed back. “You never wanted me.”
“I never wanted anything the way I wanted you. I loved you.” He dragged her painfully to her toes. “I've always loved you. I cut my own heart out when I sent you away.”
“Sure you did. But I can see I've got my work cut out for me this time. That's okay.” He skimmed his thumb over her knuckles before she jerked her hand free. “In fact, I think I'm going to enjoy it.”
“I don't know why I waste my time trying to mend fences with you. You're as arrogant as you ever were.”
“Just the way you like me, sweetheart.”
