I must say I enjoyed this book, which is odd, since I usually don't go for Nora Roberts earlier books. It's a short read, just over 200 pages, and was published in 1984, which might lead some to think that the writing would be dated as well. In this case it was not. There were no references that would make on think that this book was 20 years old. The story between Colin, the successful Irish painter, and Cassidy, the strugging writer, is a refreshing twist, where they actually did'nt jump into bed with each other. Roberts allowed the storyline and chemistry to develop at a natural pace, instead of Roberts sometimes trademark instant falling in love. I enjoyed this book, as it was light, and sweet. Recommended!
