When I read books like this early one from Ms. Roberts, I have to remind myself how far this author has come from the early years. I love her writing, but this book was just awful. I wasn't the writing, it was the story. Serenity travels to Brittany to connect with her long lost family. Her cousin by marriage does nothing but be a jerk to her, yet she falls in love with him. How and why? Because he is a good kisser? I didn't buy the love story at all. Honestly, be cause there is no love story. T ...more
Author: Nora Roberts
First published: 1991
Length: 140 pages
Setting: Contemporary. Brittany, France.
Sex: Third base but no home run.
Hero: Distant cousin by marriage, French Duke with large estate.
Heroine: Artist.

Very much a category romance with all that implies.

~ Unlucky in love, Naive, Virginal heroine.
~ Stoic, Rich, Lusty Hero.
~ Love at First Sight. He fights it, she embraces it.
~ Heavy petting culminating in an almost rape. She is so enticing he can hardly control himself!
~ Mis-communication,
Uhhhh. What? Was this seriously a Nora Roberts novel? Because it has zero elements I love Nora Roberts for. What it does have is cringe-worthy romance novel prose, too many "punishing kisses", no development of any kind, falling in love in a few days, too many third parties creating too many misunderstandings, and a hot-and-cold routine that will probably give you a whiplash.

(I'm gonna blame it all on romance fiction trends of times long gone and possibly pretend it didn't happen. Because Nora

So obviously an early NR, where she's just testing her abilities. A cliche romance, with a Harlequin feel. Still not bad. No NR can ever really be bad. But in comparison to her other books, it could have been written by an entirely different author as it's nowhere near the caliber of her later books.

A Nora book! *Sigh...all of the wanting, all of the needing, all of the romance! And set in a beautiful place that feels so magical. Another excellently written book by Nora Roberts. How does she come up with all these different characters? I fall in love with every single one of them. Brilliant!

Oh wow. This book was published before I was born!!!! We'll see just how dated it feels.......

Well, this book is VERY OBVIOUSLY an 80s book. And it wasn't because no one had cell phones and people were WRITING ACTUAL HANDWRITTEN LETTERS(!!!!), but rather... the style.

I liked Serenity... to a point. She was feisty and stood up for herself. She wasn't the typical TSTL heroine of the 80s.... but then, she also seemed to cry... all the time. I liked that she's a virgin. There's

On the story...
Serenity has lost her parents and has traveled to France after receiving a letter from the grandmother she didn't even know she had. Hurting and lonely, she rushes to France to find her long lost family but she doesn't get the welcome that she expects. Christophe is cold and uncaring, thinking Serenity has returned in hopes of gaining some of the family wealth. This is a nice sweet romance that captures the attention and brings a smile to the face. While the characters don't blow
Hay que tener en cuenta que la historia fue publicada originalmente en 1982, la novela romántica en ese entonces no era lo que es hoy, ni siquiera las de Nora Roberts, es sumamente light, tan light que casi flota de lo irreal que la situación puede llegar a ser. Serenity Smith,luego de la muerte repentina de sus padres, viaja a Francia a conocer a una abuela que no sabía que existía. Allí conoce secretos familiares, hermosos paisajes, majestuosos castillos y al salvaje, recto y exasperante Chris ...more

Serenity mengunjungi chateau nenek dari pihak ibunya, yg tidak pernah dia dengar ataupin diketahui. Sesampainya disana, Serenity menghadapi sarkasme dan sindiran dari neneknya mengenai orangtuanya. Serenity defensif dan mengancam akan segera hengkang dari chateau tsb.

Ternyata neneknya punya rencana menjodohkan dirinya pada Christophe, sang Comte. Mulailah mereka saling jual mahal dan jinak2 merpati. Main tarik ulur, lain di bibir lain di hati. Mulut bilang benci tapi bahasa tubuh bilang ya ya ya

Bukan salah satu buku favorit saya,Dan saya cenderung melupakan apa yg sudah saya baca dalam buku ini karena memang ceritanya kurang menggigit dan terlalu simple, walaupun seperti biasa NR selalu mengambarkan situasi dan lokasi dengan sangat cermat. Hanya sayang, konflik yang terjadi diselesaikan dengan sangat mudah.
Jika anda bukan pengemar romance yg muluk2, buku ini lumayan juga, tapi jika anda mencari sebuah cerita dengan sisi romantis yg banyak, anda akan kecewa.

Now that I have re-read this book after so many years I realised that she had glorified rape.

Loved it, an easy read on a nice Summer day,
“This was published in 1982… This was published in 1982… This was published in 1982…”

I have to keep reminding myself of this. And let me tell you, this book was published in 1982. And I mean that in every sense. After just getting off of Roberts 2017 “Come Sundown” this book is just a titch (A WHOLE LOT) different. This book offers what all of N.R.’s books offer; compelling characters, painted scenery, and an intriguing plot. What this book didn’t offer that most of her works do was likable cha

The next book in my quest to read every NR book from first to latest. I am still waiting to see how her writing evolves. Search for Love is another short read, harlequin style. In it we are introduced to Serenity who leaves her home in America to meet a grandmother she never knew in France. She finds out pretty quickly what led to the family split and is determined to discover what really happened. Once again, NR has a great story but still, as this is only her fourth book, doesn't deliver yet o ...more

This is my first Nora Roberts book, and now I'm wondering what took me so long!!
The story is really well plotted, there are lots of twists and turns that are unexpected which is hard to do in romance. I love how everything works out at the end, very neat and still believable. The blossoming relationship between Serenity and Christophe is hot, and both characters learn about themselves and overcome difficulties together. It's funny and realistic, especially the dialogue between the two protagonis

Jeg har et svagt punkt for Nora Roberts. Jeg har inden for det sidste år eller to, læst 12-13 af hendes bøger. Og jeg er blot starter! Det er lidt som med Danielle Steel, der også fanger mig. Ind imellem bliver man begejstret, af og til tænker man ok - den var da okay, men ikke noget særligt og af og til bliver man skuffet. Heldigvis levere både Roberts og Steel oftere bøger der begejstre end det modsatte. Med denne bog fra Nora Roberts er jeg ok tilfreds. Kærligheden blomstre og blomsterhaven d ...more

Excelente. Me gustó.

Comencé a leerla y no la solté hasta que la terminé, me pasé la noche en vela.

es Condesa y vive en un hermoso castillo, con su nieto el conde, que es quien la va a buscar a la estación cuando llega a Bretaña. Tienen que leerla es muy buena. Totalme

Good book

It was super short and I was able to get through it pretty quickly. Basic romance like the rest of Roberts work but still very sweet to read.
Not great, not terrible.

Hmm, a good old fashioned bodice ripper!

Flimsy plot line. The "romantic" male's actions border on physical abuse. Skimmed it. Not Nora Roberts at her best
3.5 stars

I would never have finished this book if it weren't for my reading goal.

That's pretty much all I have to say about it. On to the next one!

Aw what a cute story! Another successful Nora Roberts Romance.

This was a lovely little story with lots of French culture and language weaved into the story. Very interesting and very sweet.

Easy read with compelling emotional characters and a nice plot which kept things interesting. Would recommend reading on a lazy Sunday afternoon. ;)
