I really love Nora Roberts' stand-alone romances, especially the ones with a little bit of intrigue and adventure to them. Contrarily, I am frequently disappointed with her trilogies and quartets. The Sign of Seven trilogy was so blah I only read the first two, and although I might give this series another try, so far I'm underwhelmed. I was just not all that interested in the characters, in fact I found both main characters the slightest bit annoying in their own special way. Things just never clicked for me. Oh, well- better luck next time!
