This is actually two stories about women, family and love. The first story is set in Hawaii. A daughter goes home after her mother dies to find the father she was taken from in a divorce action. She knows what her mother has done only partially. As her relationship develops with her father she is also developing a relationship with a man who has been with her father as a friend and business partner.
Here again we see that people can be lead to believe in one thing when exactly the opposite is tru

It's two...two...two books in one. And while I enjoyed the byplay between the hero and heroine in Book I, I despised the hero and heroine in Book II. I can't really say why. Maybe it was his I want you/go away, I'm buying your business out from under you/but it's okay because I'm telling you before I actually do it attitude. Maybe I couldn't get past the fact that when he first sees her, he thinks she's 20 but still pursues her even though he's 31. Whatever the reasoning, it just didn't click fo ...more

I had read these 2 short stories before but could not totally recall them enough to review them so... They were sweet with young women as heroines who weren't experienced in love but managed to find themselves the object of desire from a rich handsome young man! So true to real life!!! Ha! Anyways love him, hate him, fight, misunderstand, etc. and end up right where you would expect.

The first story was a sweet story, a simple and easy read. The second story I struggled to connect with the male character, Katch. His aggressiveness made it difficult for me to see Megan with him. By the end of the story I was convinced that Katch was a nice guy.

DNF. I read the first novella, but got caught up in other books before I got to the second. I don't like Nora Roberts' older books as much as her more recent stuff. They're not as well written, and have less life to them.

You can tell these are early works of Nora Roberts. Enjoyable but not her best. If you are a Nora fan than you will enjoy.

This was 2 books in 1. The first was Island of Flowers and the second was Less of a Stranger. Both were decent love stories with the typical amount of sexual tension.

I had a hard time connecting to this story. I ended up liking it, but it was predictable and almost to "storybook".
