He told me to say when, but I can't. Not with Andres. It's so hard to say anything when he's trailing feather soft kisses down my neck, or when his touch sends hot currents of lust rippling across my skin. Then there's the way he smiles and offers soft words of encouragement when I'm creating art, almost like he believes I have talent. He's not like any guy I've ever met. Not like my ex-fiance. Not like my father. He's got me thinking that maybe we can have something more. More than just lust, degradation, and abuse.

Lunacy was Nate Burke's last chance. As a Baltimore cop, he'd watched his partner die on the street - and the guilt still haunts him. With nowhere else to go, he accepts the job as chief of police in this tiny, remote Alaskan town. Aside from sorting out a run-in between a couple of motor vehicles and a moose, he finds his first few weeks on the job are relatively quiet. But that's about to change.

Different to have a male perspective .The omniscient voice is without artifice,as is the rough terrain of the magnificent Alaskan landscape.Romance ,Murder,intrigue,kept me guessing as to themurderer until almost the conclusion.I can usually guess much earlier,! The many colours of emotion contribute to a different perspective ,Another Nora Roberts masterpiece of construction.

From #1 New York Times-best-selling author Nora Roberts comes a novel of a woman who needs nothing, a man who sees everything, and the web of deceit, greed, and danger that brings them together - and that could tear them apart… As a professional house-sitter and freelance writer, nothing ties Lila Emerson down - not her work, not a home, and definitely not a relationship. She spends her life moving from one job to the next, sometimes crashing at a friend's Manhattan apartment.

I enjoyed this story immensely,the second sisters quest to find her ancestry is as full of surprises as the first novel in the seven sisters series. This series is a historical story within a story ,with a third layer emerging within which all is contained,hinting of the mystery of the father figure, a very postmodernist approach.I look forward to reading about the other sisters as the fabric , of old and new ,of past lives and present lives is joined together to create a whole .

This Story explores in detail the experiences of the civilian population of London during the War.The reader begins the journey from Germany to England through the eyes of a young girl as anti Judaism rises..There is compassion but there is also the wide gamut of human nature,good & bad! The growth of the young girl into an adult,mirrors change,just asLondon & surrounds are transformed .A very compelling novel well performed.
