This Magic Moment Ryan Swan has vowed to never give her trust again, so it would figure that master illusionist Pierce .

This Magic Moment Ryan Swan has vowed to never give her trust again, so it would figure that master illusionist Pierce Atkins is the last man to whom she should give her heart. Especially since he is planning a death-defying stunt he might not survive. Yet despite her best efforts. The writing is as compelling as ever but the stories are a bit dated and not quite as good as Roberts current works. For pure romance they work, but don't look for the edge of your seat suspense and sharp plotting of her more current novels.

Refusing to believe their scandalous stories about her late parents, Serenity set out to prove they were fals. ut getting the enigmatic Christophe to change his mind about her would prove an equally worthy challenge.

Pierce had been right; Bennett Swan had wanted a so. Ryan drew a deep breath and gave herself a moment before opening the door.

Pierce had been right; Bennett Swan had wanted a son. Ryan had gone through her life working hard to make up for being born female. He knew what it was to be hungry-for food, for love, for a woman-but he hadn’t experienced this raw, painful need in years. He wanted the taste of her, only the taste of her. It was at once sweet and pungent. It was a difficult truth to face for a woman who prided herself on acting with common sense and practicality. She had come to get Pierce Atkins’s name on a contract, not to sleep with him.

A MASTER OF THE MYSTERIOUS Pierce was an austere and solitary . The hall wound to the right.

A MASTER OF THE MYSTERIOUS Pierce was an austere and solitary figure, a magician who had dazzled and entranced audiences all over the world. Then he stopped so abruptly, she nearly collided with his back.

This Magic Moment -For Ryan Swan, who'd learned never to give her trust, master illusionist Pierce Atkins was the last man to whom she should give her heart. Especially since he was planning a death-defying stunt he might not escape from. But could Morgan's suspicions about the mysterious Greek tycoon withstand the all-consuming desire ignited by his kiss? The Physical Object.

com User, February 3, 2009. Nora Roberts always delivers & I know when I see her name on it I'm in for an enjoyable read but never a predictable plot. Again Nora Roberts has taken us for a wonderful adventure. I enjoy most all her writings.

Love Nora Roberts - have devoured everything she has ever written and will continue to do so, even tho' this was pretty awful

She is also the author of the bestselling futuristic suspense series written under the pen name . Roberts has more than 400 million copies of her books in print. Love Nora Roberts - have devoured everything she has ever written and will continue to do so, even tho' this was pretty awful. BUT, that being said, you can definitely tell this was one of her very early books. Having just finished her latest, "Whiskey Bay" you can definitely tell she has matured into a fine writer (in my opinion).

This Magic Moment (Unabridged). I love Nora's book's,but this one wasn't one of them. Blithe Images (Unabridged). There was more sex than romance in the story.

This Magic Moment

Ryan Swan has vowed to never give her trust again, so it would figure that master illusionist Pierce Atkins is the last man to whom she should give her heart. Especially since he is planning a death-defying stunt he might not survive. Yet despite her best efforts, in Pierce’s enthralling presence, all Ryan’s defenses seem to vanish…like magic.

Search for Love

Arriving at her long-lost relatives’ Brittany estate, Serenity Smith is greeted with cold politeness by the Comtesse de Kergallen and her darkly handsome grandson, Christophe. Refusing to believe their scandalous tales about her late parents, Serenity sets out to prove them false. But getting the enigmatic Christophe to change his mind about her turns out to be an equally worthy challenge.

The Right Path

After a frightening encounter with a knife-wielding stranger, Morgan James is bewildered when her “attacker” turns out to be the very wealthy Nicholas Gregoras. Though Morgan’s suspicions about the Greek tycoon are strong and very justified, can they withstand the all-consuming desire ignited by his passionate kiss?

Smoke jumpers, those that fight wildfires with specialty training and parachute jumping, is the setting for this story.
The story opens with a smoke jumper and her jump partner falling from the sky on a fire. As she looks back at her partner she see's him pull his toggle in the wrong direction, which sends him into the bowels of the fire, where he is killed.
The following summer, as the wildfire season begins, there is trouble between the female partner of the jumper that was killed and his dating fling, and her baby.
There are several incidents where the smoke jumpers are placed in dangerous situations in and around the base camp. And then a fire is reported in a forest close to base and a murder has occurred.
The story continues until the equipment used for fighting fires is tampered with and they are put in danger in a fire.
The smoke jumpers continue fighting wildfires with a twist on the final fire.
This author again demonstrates her ability to learn the correct language and procedures for fighting wildfires and she completes a love story between firefighting incidents and keeps the readers attention on the characters as they go through this different summer. She also interposes
a secondary love story and connects the events so that the reader is rewarded with an exciting story line and is able to follow through the entire book without loosing their place and to remain enthralled with the story line.

Such a refreshing and entertaining reading:

1. I've never read a book about smoke jumpers, so I loved getting immersed in their foreign-to-me world.

2. The main romance between Rowan & Gull was an absolute delight to read thanks to the lack of clichés. Every now and then I have enjoyed them in romance books, but a couple who communicates their feelings and thoughts will always be a winner for me. No need to use third parties or innecessary denials to stop them from getting their HEA.

3. The romance subplot didn't bore me, and it usually does when it's not about the main couple.

What stops this from being a perfect reading:

The long descriptions about the missions got tiresome. I get being told once or twice about them, but there were many missions, so to read the technical talk over and over and over again was exhausting. (Although thankfully not as much as the one in the Inn BoonsBoro trilogy.)

***OVERALL

Chasing Fire is another Nora Roberts winner. Too bad it isn't part of a series, would've loved to see every one of them getting a HEA like Rowan and Gull.

'Key of Valour' takes us to the last quest to find the third key. It's Zoe's turn and she's gonna have to find the courage to trust her heart and go for what she wants.

I had an absolutely wonderful time getting to see Zoe and Brad falling in love even though Zoe did annoy me in the last chapters because she didn't want to accept what she felt (and what Brad felt for her). I felt it took her so long to accept her feelings and it frustrated me. But I loved Brad because he had a lot of patience with her.

And speaking about Brad, he was a sweetheart! My favorite parts of this book definitely include his scenes with Simon. It was a pleasure getting to see man and boy loving each other. The only issue I had with one of the scenes is that a couple of dialogues were a copy of one of Nora Robert's books: Sea Swept. It is my favorite book from her. I've read it plenty of times so as soon as I saw the dialogues I knew where it came from. It bothered me and I wish it could've been said different.

But keeping that aside, I liked there were barely sexist comments. And I liked seeing more of Flynn, Malory, Dana and Jordan, too.

The climax with Kane wasn't as interesting as book 2. I was definitely expecting something bigger. But in the end, I'm just glad the villain was vanquished and Rowena and Pitte got to finally have their HEA. I even cried with that part and it was my favorite moment from the whole book.

*OVERALL:

The last book in the Key trilogy was an interesting and great conclusion.

The series as a whole was a pleasure to read because it has the essence of Nora's oldest series. Sure, I've enjoyed her new ones but there is nothing like her old and classy. There's something about the writing and characters that stand out from the more recent ones.

If you're looking for a series about love, friendship, family (and you don't mind a couple of sexist comments here and there) this is the series for you.

Warning of Domestic Violence triggers.

Compelling blend of history, Wiccan, thriller and HEA. Believable characters. The dialogue is informative, enjoyable and snarky. Easy to follow stand-alone storyline. Formatting and editing errors.

“The Puritans came here, searching, they said, for religious freedom. Of course, many of them were only looking for a place to force their beliefs and their fears on others. And in Salem, they persecuted and murdered blindly, so blindly that not one of the nineteen souls they took was the soul of a witch.”

"Prejudice and fear are never clear-sighted.”

“She wouldn’t if you weren’t trying to push your psychic hooey on her."

"'Psychic hooey’ sounds like the name of a second-rate rock band and has nothing to do with what I am. But even that’s better than blind, stubborn denial. Knowledge is always better than ignorance.”

I will re-read this story and look forward to other works by this author.
