Guess this genre is not my thing. I have been curious about romance novels and romance/suspense novels and what people find compelling about them. So, I found this book thinking it could be alright and then learned part-way through that this author is really Nora Roberts ....

Anyway, the heroine is an unlikeable, angry, and foul-mouthed cop who has tomboyish good looks. She does not take care of herself nor is she interested in trying to. The hero is a tall, out-of-this-world handsome Irishman who is brilliant, powerful, and incredibly rich. Her life is fairly devoid of anything special and here he comes to fill it up--mommy, daddy, and rough yet tender lover all wrapped up in one. He has all the traits women like about women and wish men would have ... he is warm, caring, nurturing, giving, a good cook, neat and tidy, but also rugged. To top it all off he is incredibly brilliant and powerful with a touch of the macho and a teeny bit criminal, just to keep the juices flowing. But, it's not just the characters. The plot was predictable and didn't convince me in the slightest. The romance too was predictable and annoying and even though I know it is fiction, this story is just too unbelievable.

Michelle Amen! I couldn't for the life of me figure out what Roarke was supposed to see in Eve Dallas' character. He was like some Greek god and she was a good cop but not a very nice person. It bothered me on many levels.
