Shygirl: Reading After Midnight

I will read anything I can get my hands on. Seriously.

 Most books I read are reviewed for Harlequin Junkie, but I'll have an occasional independent or author requested review that I'll post.

My First Nora Roberts Paranormal. And I Loved It!

Bay of Sighs (Guardians Trilogy) - Nora Roberts

“Annika.” Overwhelmed, he buried his face in the curve of her neck. “I need you.”

Bay of Sighs was a thrilling fantasy novel pairing sincere emotions with characters who had a great mix of personalities. And although I haven’t yet read book one, Stars of Fortune, I fell into this storyline pretty easily and was completely captivated from the start.

I’ve read several of her other romance and romantic suspense novels and of course enjoyed her writing voice. I was pleasantly surprised a little bit here that her ‘voice’ changed slightly with this genre. To me, there was a different flow to the story, one that evoked a sense of wonder while we were carried along with the six main characters in their fight against evil. I loved being wrapped up in the world Roberts created filled with time travel, magic, and fantastical creatures.
