Hollywood director Philip Kincaid was searching for the perfect location for his latest movie, paying no attention to the speed limit in Friendly, New Mexico. When he was pulled over by Friendly's only deputy, Phil refuses to sign the ticket, finding himself under arrest. Furious, he still managed to acknowledge the surge of an entirely different emotion when he laid eyes on the temporary sheriff, Victoria Ashton.

A successful lawyer, Tory was home to cover her late father's job until it is time...more

Sheriff wanita ? ah NR memang sering menciptakan tokoh yg luar biasa. Tapi jika sheriffnya seperti yg NR gambarkan tentang Tory Ashton, wah penjara bisa penuh, krn menurut Bricks, cara jalan Tory bisa membuat orang yg melihat menjadi gila, haha.
Yang 2 hal yang menarik dalam buku ini adalah cara penyelesaian atas perselisihan Tory dan Helen saat ayahnya meninggal, dimana Helen memutuskan untuk mematikan alat respirator yang telah terpasang selama 2 minggu, dan cara Tory serta Phil menyikapi hubun...more

Great book!!!

This is the story of film director Phillip Kincaid and attorney Victoria Ashton. Tory is serving as sheriff of Friendly, New Mexico where Phillip decides to set his latest movie. This is one of Nora Roberts' early books, originally published in 1984 and by Silhouette in 1992. As such, it is a typical "steamy" romance.
Clau
Esperaba algo mas de intriga... bueno, esperaba INTRIGA. Sin embargo, este libro trata unicamente sobre el romance de esos dos. De todas maneras, Nora Roberts formo bien a sus personajes,dandole vida a la novela. Lo recomiendo, aunque no se si lo leeria de nuevo, ya que resulta un tanto predecible.

Baca beberapa kali, dan ternyata perasaanku ga berubah. Tetep suka sama buku ini.
Salah satu novel NR favoriteku :)
Meskipun untuk kali ini butuh waktu yg lama buat namatinnya. Karena penyakit malas baca dan penyakit ngantuk menyerang beberapa hari belakangan :p

I don't have a single complaint about this book, I loved the characters, the setting, and most importantly the fun loving romance of two people both in the height of their chosen profession. I would defiantly recomend for anyone looking for a good quick romance to read

This was a really cute story. Tori and Kincaid were a great match for each other right from the get go. Super cute.

This one was really a so-so kind of book. Noth the best or close to the best I have read from NR but not a waste of time either.

Not my favorite Nora Roberts book. There was no conflict, no intrigue.
Niki
Love Nora Roberts and all of her books they are fast, easy, fun romances.

No romance novel should ever use the word "moist" as much as this one does.
