Want to know why I’m so excited?A short explanation………I have been reading Nora Roberts’s books for years and years…in fact, I have a huge collection of her works in a bookshelf dedicated to her.
But the last couple of her books have somewhat been a disappointment to me….even began thinking that the most recent book I read, Blood Magick (The Cousins O'Dwyer Trilogy #3) https://www.goodreads.com/book/show/1... which I gave 2 stars…first time ever…..could not ...more
Now that all those people are gone, here's my beef:

Sasha Riggs lives a lonely, solitary life as a painter in the mountains of North Carolina. When she becomes plagued by disturbing dreams that manifests into her art, she decides to give into the pull and ends up in Corfu, Greece. From there, she meets five people who will become part of her destiny, one of whom, Bran Killian, will mean much more.
I loved the mythology of this story, which forms the foundation for the tale. The quest is for three stars created ...more
It has been way too long since I have read a Roberts book, and in doing so, it reminded me all over again why she truly is a master in her craft.
Her books are engaging, fun, well written, designed, and executed. Easy to get into and hard to step away from, this is another series that fans are just going to adore.
Reminiscent of two of my favorite series by her, Three Sister's Island and the Circle Trilogy, it was no wonder this was a hard one to put down.
I loved all the magical eleme ...more
Hello, my name is Erin and I have a weakness for Nora Roberts trilogies. Oh and I don't feel guilty about it.
Book One introduces us to American artist Sasha, a woman whose dreams have now overtaken her artwork. These visions encourage Sasha to head to the Greek island of Corfu where she is joined by two other women and three men. Turns out they are all seekers of an ancient prophecy and a goddess lurks in the darkness waiting to thwart them.
Not many authors can juggle multiple chara ...more

When someone is often referred to as the world's greatest storyteller, you can be sure, even before you open her new book, that you're in for a treat. This always stands true for Nora Roberts, who is famous for her exciting plots, unforgettable settings and steaming hot romances. Regardless of whether she writes contemporary romance, paranormal fiction or even futuristic crime fiction as J.D. Robb, the underlying recipe remains the same.
Stars of Fortune is the first in Nora’s brand new para ...more
Re-read: Dec 2017
Initial rating: 1/5 stars
New rating: 4/5 stars
I really enjoyed this re-read! While I'm still unsure about what the stars are supposed to do, I focused more on the developing romances between the couples and found Stars of Fortune was actually an easy page turner. Sasha and Bran are not my favourite of the three couples but this book turned out to be a much stronger paranormal romance than I first gave it credit for.
The story involves six characters, each with individual gifts and secrets, that come together to find the fire star. Friendships are formed and strengthened as their journey together moves on. However, with every attempt at bonding, a dark threat looms seeking to destroy everything that stands in their way of pos ...more
The blurb was intriguing and I finally gave in last night.
Each character in this book has mystical powers and is guarding secrets. This group of strangers comes together on a quest to find the fallen stars and protect them from an evil Goddess - Nerezza.
Bran was my favourite in this story and I know he's going to be ...more

Sasha is an artist who lives a solitary life in North Carolina. Ostracized from her family, she finds it easier to live in seclusion than to have to come to terms with what she is -- a seer who has visions of what is to come. But, over the last several months, she has been compulsively drawing the same six people -- three men and three women -- who stand together in an unknown place. More than that ...more
Stars of Fortune is the first book in the Guardian's Trilogy and I was lucky enough to grab all three books at my local library. And boy, I haven't read this author in quite a long while....since her Bride Quartet series was released and I wanted to give her paranormal's a chance, and since I heard nothing but good things about these books I knew I needed to pick them up and first off I wish I could just leave this review with AWESOME SAUCE ...more
I can say from myself, that I love Nora Roberts´ writing style and her books very much. I have read many of them over the past 25 years.
Stars of Fortune reminded me in some ways of other novels of her, where she brought witches and magic as well into the game. The Donovan Saga is one example, her Cousins ...more
The Guardians by Nora Roberts remind me a lot of her other trilogies such as Three Sisters Island, The Gallaghers of Ardmore and Sign of Seven. It’s a story about three men and three women who meet on a quest filled with legends, myths, magic, friendship, fighting and of course love.
They are no ordinary people, and next quote describes this group of people to perfection:
“To just lay this out. We’ve got a witch, a seer, a werewolf – I like the word, okay?” he said with laugh before...more
Then we need characters:
*Sasha Riggs is an artist and a seer who has been dreaming of death and battle and five people who will be in this adventure with her. She is solitary by choice.
"She believed in true love— for others ...more

Action, adventure, thrills and romance, this book has it all with the promise of more to come.
Though I’m kicking myself for waiting to read this one, I’m glad the entire trilogy is available for me to binge read.
I look forward to the others journeys but still I expect Bram and Sasha to be in the mix of thing.
The narrator did a fantastic job.
To those like me who have inhaled everything she has ever written, it will feel very similar to many of her other recent trilogies. Six people meet and come together fated to accomplish a magical task. They pair up eventually into three coupl ...more
I haven’t read Nora Roberts books for awhile as they can get similar but, this one .... well I’m going straight on to the 2nd one in this trilogy.
We meet the six who are destined to find the stars and protect them from the evil that seeks them to destroy the world. Roberts brought us such an interesting cast of characters with Bran, Sasha, Annika, Riley, Sawyer and Doyle. Each brings something to the quest but they will need to learn to trust each oth ...more
