Book Description

November 1993 Night Tales
'Some of the stuff they want us to do for the cameras gives me the creeps. I think they killed one of the girls, so I am getting out before they kill me.' So reads the chilling letter which sends Cole Nightshade on a private quest for justice. A teenage runaway is caught up in a seedy, terrifying underworld. Coereced into making sadistic films which end in violence, even death, Liz is in greater danger than she knows. Colt needs help and is forced to turn to the cops. Partnered with Lieutenant Althea Grayson, the two become an impressive team. But the clock is ticking for Liz and the trail is going cold. Can Colt and Althea find her before she winds up dead? Passion. Power. Suspense. It's time to fall under the spell of Nora Roberts.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not the Dark Side of Romance! March 21 2005
By L. Martin - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I've often referred to the small romance books as "throw away" books because you can usually finish them in a couple of hours. Nightshade is a Silhouette Intimate Moments Book and definitely a quick read. It's also the 3rd book in Nora Roberts Night Series (the other two are also the short romance type of books). The entire series could be completed in less than a weekend of reading if you're trapped indoors with nothing else to do.

As with many of Nora Roberts' early books, the plot line is somewhat predictable, but still very enjoyable. It's the basic cookie-cutter romance plot: man meets woman (they are total opposites), sparks fly, romance ensues, and they live happily-ever-after. But one of Nora Roberts' best writing traits is her ability to develop characters so the reader feels they are real.

Colt Nightshade is a private detective looking for a runaway teenager being held against her will. In the course of his investigations, he becomes the unwilling partner of police Lt. Althea Grayson. This case hits Grayson a little too close to home for her to be completely objective. Thus the struggles of the main female character - she struggles with the case and with the attraction to Nightshade.

Colt Nightshade is the typical romantic male lead - handsome, debonair, and a bit intriguing with his bad-boy tendencies by not playing "by the book" to solve the case or win the affections of Althea.

While this dynamic duo are trying to sort out their feelings for each other, they are hot on the trail of the bad guys. Ok, didn't I mention "cookie cutter" romance above in my description??? Yep, and it even has a happily-ever-after ending too (bet you didn't see that coming!).

This book is typical and predictable but still an enjoyable read (as with most of Roberts' books)! The original Silhouette Intimate Moments book is out of print and is considered VERY HARD TO FIND but reprints are available!
