A Chave da Luz (Key Trilogy #1)
The PNR aspect of the story was interesting, with a gothic vibe that was eerie and unexpected. An old mansion named Warrior's Peak, guarded by gargoyles, sitting at the top of a hill surrounded by mist... A dark and stormy night... A woman driving alone, wondering what she was going to find at the mansion... ...more
I totally believe that two people who have spent a whole summer jumping out of planes and escaping DEATH BY FIRE together on a daily basis might fall in love and get married after knowing each other for only a few months.
It also seems plausible that you might fall in love with a guy who had a crush on you in high school, or even possibly your car mechanic, but deciding to marry this random dude with an annoying dog three weeks after you met him, just because you went on some wac ...more
Perhaps this should really get a fourth star. I loved the characters. If you disregard the gods run amok aspect, this is a great romance. The dialog had me smiling through most of the book. Fun.
The novel (the first of three in the Key Trilogy) includes a mythic background with three goddesses who are trapped asleep in a glass box and three women are brought together--whom happen to look exactly like the goddesses-- ...more

I don't like it when people say that they're above certain types of writing. It's fine if you prefer certain genres, but I don't think any genre should be dismissed out of hand. Admittedly, there are a lot of romance novels that are just over-the-top, plotless, and poorly ...more
It doesn't hurt the book that the main character's name is Malory and one of my first crushes was Mallory Keaton (yes, that Mallory Keaton). I know, I'm a dork. Still, Malory Price is an extremely likeable character even if some of her best lines are too stereotypical to take seriously. I particularly like that she is brave enough to confess her feelings before s ...more
Let me tell you a story... the story of three demi-goddesses who were born to a god king and his mortal wife. Jealous of his happiness & outraged by his marriage to a mortal, the other gods secretly plotted to destroy the king. One god succeeded in stealing the daughters's souls. The angry god then locked them each in a box that could only be unlocked by mortal 3 women...

The story flows beautifully, and the chemistry between Flynn and Mal was spectacular. Flynn's humor grew on me very ...more
The point is, I immediately thought this book to be written around the 90s as it was full of cliches and not leaving space for suspense - all the future characters and couples were revealed on the very first book. Actually it was ...more
I don't know if I have a lot to add to the conversation about this book. It's above average? It didn't make me want to burn it in effigy as some of her more recent work has? It's an average story glorifying witchcraft and enchantment, written by an above average author. It's designed to sell so it should be no surprise that it most likely did.
On the downside, I'm really bored by her two or two and a half so sex ...more
Nora Roberts invites you to unlock your dreams... Three women. Three keys. Each has 28 days to find her way through a dangerous quest. Nora Roberts brings us a unique series with a twist—each novel is written in real time, and the novels will be published in consecutive months.

Roberts built her reputation writing first-rate romantic tales involving legends and magic, and now she returns to the supernatural realm with a story that's not as stellar as her earlier works b...more
It had quite a lot of "woo-woo" in it (as Eve Dallas would say), but in a Circle Trilogy way, not in a magical-realism way (which I sorta hate).
Also, have I mentioned lately that I LOVE SUSAN ERICKSEN? Because I do. Not only does she have a freaking AMAZING VOICE, but she spells her name with an E-N, like my maiden name (Andersen).
Oh, right. So, Malory, Dana, and Zoe are all in a kinda precarious state, job-wise. Malory and Zoe have just been let go and Dana's on the cusp (and ...more
It has EVERYTHING I look for in a book. I'm diving right on
in to the second as soon as I'm finished typing this up. :)
I found this story slow in places, but it ...more
Eleanor Marie Robertson was born on October 10, 1950 in Silver Spring, Maryland, USA. She was the youngest of five children, also the only girl, of a marriage with Irish ancestors. Her family were avid readers, so books were always important in her life. She attended a Catholic school and credits the nuns with instilling in her a sense of discipline. During her ...more
