Second Nature: 4 stars

The rating above is only for this first story. I really, really liked it. The relationship between the hero and heroine was funny, sweet, and sexy. The chemistry is present from the moment they meet each other and in spite of the short length of the story, Nora Roberts managed to convince me they've fallen in love. Apart from the hero/heroine's relationship, there's also a father-daughter relationship that was sweet and add

A Change of Plans is two novella length novels in one. Second Nature was the stronger of the two character-wise, while Summer Desserts would make for a fun little summer read.

This is a re-release of two NR short Silhouette romances from 1985 - potential readers should know this going in, as it may have a drastic effect on one's enjoyment of the stories. (This will depend on personal taste, especially - for example, I am very happy to enjoy the old-style "head hopping" now so frowned upon in romance, but the social aspects of these books often leave me cold - so, proceed with caution and your own proclivities in mind.)

This is actually a reprint of two of Nora Roberts' older stories, and it is obvious. Of the two, I liked "Second Nature" better - the characters were more interesting and, to me, more realistic. "Summer Desserts" did not hold my attention the way a Nora Roberts book usually does. Also, the style is not up to par with her later stories, and I found the point of view changes a bit abrupt and distracting at times. It is still an enjoyable read, just not what I've gotten used to from this author.

I would have LOVED these if I had read them back in the 80's when they were originally published. That's when I thought smoking was cool and falling in love with a rich guy meant happily ever after. Now that I'm no longer a teenager I found the obscenely rich characters obnoxious and I wonder why no one seems to write romance novels set in real life. Do we really need total escapism? Is romance incompatible with the middle class? God, I hope not.

The characters in these two stories were a little harder to love. I just didn't click with them as much as I have clicked with some of Nora Roberts others.

Only read the second book in this paperback. It was ok but had trouble relating to 2 perfectionists. Some angst made it ok but fell flat. Love JD Robb. Not so crazy about Nora.
