Good romances.

These stories were just the right amount I wanted of mystery and romance. They were perfect stories to curl up in a chair with, and read about secret passages and murder.
Kirby and Adam and Fairchild and Harriet were wonderful, and I'd like to be more like Kirby.
Autumn and Lucas were fine, and Julia and Aunt Tabby were fabulous. Their story was so much like a game of clue, it was wonderful.

Philip Fairchild is a very wealthy and eccentric popular and gifted artist for over 30 years. His daughter, Kirby, at 27 years old is also an artist and enjoys sculpting as well. Their houseguest for four weeks, Adam Haines, is also an artist in his own right and as Kirby and Adam are introduced, the attraction between the two of them is undeniable. But, in order to win Kirby's heart, their relationship must be based on total commitment to one another and absolute trust right from the beginning. ...more

The two books in this compilation are definitely not her best works of literary genius. If you haven’t read Nora before, don’t start with these two because you’ll be sadly disappointed and you might not want to read anything else by Nora and your life will be sadly lacking. You can look at my book list on goodreads and see many other titles of Nora’s that I absolutely LOVE and treasure and read over and over again! If you are already a fan of her work, you’ll understand what I mean about these ...more
Hard to give a rating, but this was a nice, quick, easy read. Two stories in one book. Both are romances, with twists. The Art of Deception is about a girl and her father who are artists. Adam comes to stay with them in their mansion. This story contains an art forgery scheme. Storm Warning is about a group of people staying at Autumn's aunt's country inn. There is a murder mystery at the end that is a real page turner.

I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a quick, easy romance novel. Howev

The first story in this compiatlions is harmless. Typical of romances in the 80s where everyone is insufferably quirky and also some kind of artist and/or spy. The second deserves more notice if only to draw attention to my total dismay that Roberts would allow it to be republished at all. The hero very nearly rapes the heroine - and then late proclaims it was because he was overwhelemd by his passion and just couldn't help himself. Well. If you only rape and/or assault someone because you love ...more

A reprint of two vintage Roberts titles from the 80s. Light romance, nice mindless reading. The female protagonist in the second story really irritated me. I probably would have given the first book (Art of Deception) 3 stars and the second (Storm Warning) 2 or even just 1. Not my favourites.

I cannot believe that I did not read these two books when they first came out. They were great as a combined book. I really enjoyed them.

two novellas that were average. Not at Ms. Roberts usual skill set. Like she started with the idea didn't know where to go with it and just published it anyway.

I agree with another reviewers comments. The story was not as riveting and I lost interest in finishing.

Not my favorite Nora Roberts book. This just didn't draw me in like so many others have.
