#1 New York Times best-selling author Nora Roberts presents the final novel in the thrilling Night Tales series.
Jonah Blackhawk knew forbidden fruit when he tasted it, and Ally Fletcher definitely fell into that category. The lanky blonde wasn't just a cop, she was also the police commissioner's daughter. No matter how sharp or constant Blackhawk's hunger may be, Ally was off-limits. She needed to finish her case, get out of his club and out of his life, before the memory of their passionate embrace consumed him. Until then, he'd stay away from her and keep to his own world, protected by the cover of night, his Night Shield.

Nora Roberts always impresses. This was one of my favourites of the Night Tales Series. If you like the In Death Series by the same author, you will enjoy the clash of strong independent female characters with matched male counterparts. Believable characters with heart warming and gut wrenching moments.
Kate Rudd's performance works.
Narrated by Kate Rudd, Night Shield is a short one, under six hours of listening. There is a series of about 4-5 Nora Roberts books, Night Tales. This is one. Everybody in the Roberts books is drop-dead-gorgeous, so no change there. This time the lead, Ally Fletcher, is the daughter of the two lead characters of the first book, Night Shift, and some of the plot carries forward. Should tell you to read the books in sequence to get the most pleasure.
Typical of Roberts, mawkish romance interspersed with a great mystery. Not deep, not intended to be. Simply curl-up-on-the-sofa-with-some-hot-chocolate, your cat, and enjoy!
"Quick listen, Shadows of Eve and Roarke"
Sounds so much like Eve and Roarke except each of them is more solid in the family department and less isolated. Fun, I like it.
This story seems to be the seeds of JD Robb's In Death series. The man was a pickpocket in his youth, saved by a man who set him on the right path. The woman is a tough cop. Not everything lines up, but you can see the roots of the story here. Overall, very good!
I really enjoyed this series and this was a wonderful ending to it. A great way to wrap it all up!!
The books is another in the series that is enjoyable. Maybe predictable but definitely pleasant and worth listening to.
