it was amazing

NR already wrote this story, only she titled it The Heart of Devon MacKade. The similarities are far too many to count between the two. It's actually a bit ridiculous! I swear RT's Grace is HoDM's Cassie's doppelganger! The only difference between the two characters was their eye color!! So why am I not pissed that I just paid to read virtually the same story twice? Because this simple story appeals to me on so many levels. You got the small town community where everybody knows everybody. The tight-knit central family that everyone admires and adores. The reluctant heroes and the heroines who love them, flaws and all. Not to mention the ridiculously hot brothers!!! NR added just enough subtle changes to this story to make it it's own so I was able to enjoy it all the same. What can I say? I'm a sucker for a good-ol formulaic NR romance novel. She knows her stuff.

Dina You know, I didn't notice the similarities between Rising Tides and The Heart of Devin MacKade when I read them, but you're right: they follow the same "formula". But I'm also a sucker for a good-ol formulaic NR romance, so I loved both books. :D

Rachel Yeah, I couldn't not love them both also. ^_^ And can't wait to get to the rest in the series. ;)
