Search for Love is about Serenity Smith, a woman who has just lost her parents, then travels from Washington D.C. to France to meet with her grandmother, whom she'd never known. There she meets Christophe de Kergallen, the Count of Kergallen, whose grandfather married Serenity's grandmother after they were both widowed with children.
While Serenity is a fiery, vibrant, stubborn woman, Christophe is an icy, arrogant, and equally stubborn man. Serenity's independence and spunk makes her a fine heroine who you'll love, Christophe on the other hand can be hard to deal with, you'll either love him or hate him. At times you want to smack this hero with how smug and overbearing he can be and you can feel the frustration Serenity feels while dealing with Christophe. But through the story sparks fly as these two try to deny the passion they feel for one another. The secondary characters are great and I hope to see them in another book or two.
Though this story is quite different from Nora Roberts usual tales, it still packs quite a punch and you can see how diverse she is in her talent. This is more a gothic tale than any of her others I have read. As a gothic tale, it is one of the best, as a Nora Roberts, while not her best, it is a very solid tale that is timeless. It may not be for everyone, but I'd say give it a try!
