message 3: by DarienMoya (new)

Dina Oh my, I love this series!!! I've read and reread all the books and short stories countless times and can't wait to get my hands on the next release. In my little psycho world, I'm married to Roarke. ;)


message 5: by Buggy (new)

Buggy Its not a psycho world Dina Roarke is just awesome (in my top 5 literary boyfriends) and in all honesty the only reason I've kept reading the series. He is just too lovely.

Does he continue to be as interesting throughout the series?? I can't imagine how their relationship can remain interesting after they're married (they do get married right?) I just finished book 2 and he asked her at the end.

UniquelyMoi ~ 1-Click RockChick My daughter LOVES all of these books and owns most of them. One of the few things she'll spend her own money on are In Death books. Though to be honest, she tried to get me to spend MY money on them first, but as I'm not yet reading the series, I stood firm and refused. LOL

Have no fear, Buggy. Roarke remains verrrry interesting till this day. You've only scratched the surface of his character so far, there's so much more to learn about him - just keep reading! You'll also learn a lot about Eve as the series progresses. Do they get married? Keep reading, LOL!

You'll also get to know several new secondary characters through the course of the series. They're all three-dimensional characters with lives of their own and interesting storylines, but they don't overshadow Roarke and Eve, of course. Hands down, Peabody is the best secondary character I've ever met and you're about to meet her. :)

As for the tone of the series, you'll find out that some books are more romance-driven and others are more mystery-driven. I love them all because I love whodunit novels, but some readers don't like the ID mystery-driven books that much.

Smart move, UM. Now you can read her books for free, LOL.

Yeah, for a change! LOL

Yz the Whyz If you enjoyed this book, I recommend the audiobook version. I'm up to Book 7 so far, and I'm loving Susan Erickssen's narration. I love how she does Roarke.

Oooh, naughty Dina wants to do Roarke too. ;)


message 12: by Janet (new)

Janet oh yeah. Roarke is hot! There are 30 books in the series now? Wow! I've got some catching up to do! Probably have to start over at the beginning, don't you think? ;)


message 13: by ElaineY (new)

ElaineY I bought the entire series last year but have not added the latest ones, whatever they are. I adored Roarke in the first two or three but by the time I got to the 4th book, the plot was getting too predictable. I haven't picked the series back up since then.

...but the books look nice on my bookshelf, tho'.


message 14: by Ren (new)

Ren My favorite series :)
Roarke is definitely always on top of my romance book's boyfriends list :))


message 15: by Nissie (new)

Nissie Great review, Buggy! I haven't read any of these in a while. I'm going to have to drag them back out and see which ones I'm missing. Eve is not my favorite character in the world, but I can put up with her to get to Roarke. :D


 Lady Jayne *~*The Beach Bandida*~* Great review, Buggy! Ren recommended this series to me and raved about Roarke, but as you say, the number of books in this series is daunting. But if Roarke managed to become your new literary boyfriend, I should check this series out sooner! I love the quote! *sighs*


message 17: by Nissie (new)

Nissie Roarke has more girlfriends than any man who ever lived!! Either on the page or off! I think Eve should watch her back. I think EVERYONE who has read these loves him. Even guys who have read them think Roarke is cool!


 Lady Jayne *~*The Beach Bandida*~* I want me some Roarke NOW!!! LOL I've requested him though my library. They better get him to me soon!


message 19: by Nissie (new)

Nissie Jayne, if I have any duplicates, I'd be happy to send them to you! I know it wouldn't be NOW since you're in Australia, but it might be quicker than the library!


 Lady Jayne *~*The Beach Bandida*~* Awww...That's so sweet of you, Nissie! Apparently one of the copies is due back in a couple weeks, so I think I can wait til then. ^_^


message 21: by Nissie (new)

Nissie Okay. Just let me know if you change your mind. I'm going to try to go through them in the next few days. I hope you don't have to wait much longer, but Roarke is worth the wait! :)


 Lady Jayne *~*The Beach Bandida*~* Thanks, Nissie! You're awesome! ^_^


message 23: by Nissie (new)

Nissie Aww thank you! And you're welcome! :)


message 24: by Ren (new)

Ren Jayne you must read this :D
Unfortunately the publisher in Indonesia just only publish until Witness in Death and they plan to publish the next book Betrayal in Death next year!!
A few years ago, they always print In Death 3-4 times for a year, but this year just 2 books out.
Me and my friend almost faint when we hear that Betrayal will be published next year.
Give us Roarke ASAP :(


 Lady Jayne *~*The Beach Bandida*~* I will read it soon, Ren!

What number is Betrayal in Death? I haven't gotten to know Roarke yet but I can just imagine how hard it would be to wait for more of him! Do you still have all the other books? I know it's not the same, but you can always revisit him when you miss him. ^_^


message 26: by Ren (new)

Ren Betrayal in Death is the 10th book Jayne.
Yes i have 9 books before it, and i have reread it again and again. it seems I'm so addicted to Roarke.
I know some people say he is too good to be true, too perfect.
But well, a girl can dream anyway ;).
Everyone will want perfect husband like him, so loving, so caring.
Huff, I'm envy with Eve *lol*

 Lady Jayne *~*The Beach Bandida*~* Wow, and there already almost 30 books? And they are only releasing 2 a year in Indonesian? I understand even more your frustration now, Ren!

Too good to be true? Well, that's what a fantasy hero is, isn't it? ^_^


message 28: by Buggy (new)

Buggy Damn I missed the yummy Roarke conversation! Glad you liked the review girls, we can always dream


message 29: by Nissie (new)

Nissie We can start another yummy Roarke conversation any time you like! I'm sure plenty of us gals would weigh in! :)


message 30: by Adrienne (new)

Adrienne Testa Not a groupie, curious about Roarke... something about him makes you wonder.


message 31: by Buggy (new)

Buggy LOL Adrienne, Yes he makes me wonder too and daydream...

Buggy: yes, Roarke is a man who has that something... could create many a good daydreams. I am new to this series. But, I am now up to Rapture in Death. I find each book has an interesting story and secondary characters. But, your mind goes back to Roarke and how he interacts with people. He understands Eve. Accepts her friends into his home. Teaches her about family. I wouldn't mind going hand to hand combat with him.. sweaty or in the shower.

Nissie: I am just learning about Roarke. Love his interaction with Eve and Summerset. Loved when he blushed realizing when they were in Mexico and having sex by the pool, the security camera was still rolling. I had to laugh at his reaction... so old fashion for a man who lives in the age of technology. From his description, he must look very hot and sexy in a tux.
