Roberts returns with the customary combo of romance and intrigue in Homeport, the tale of a lovelorn Ph.D. trying to save her reputation as well as her life. Dr. Miranda Jones, who specializes in authenticating Renaissance art, is called to Italy to verify The Dark Lady, a statue that may have been created by Michelangelo. When the sculpture turns out to be a fake, she is determined to find the original and gains the help of sexy art thief Ryan Boldari--who has plans to steal a bronze via Jones. However, his manipulative designs go awry when he falls for the brainy redhead and a dangerous killer begins to stalk them. -- Dieser Text bezieht sich auf eine andere Ausgabe: Taschenbuch.

This book provided a wonderful romantic story, with a strong heroine and an equally strong (not sappy) hero in Ryan. Some of the most heartwarming parts were the most realistic -- Ryan taking Miranda home to dinner with his family, Miranda simultaneously heartbroken for and furious at her alcoholic brother Andrew (in fact, I'd love to see a sequel on Andrew sometime). All in all this was a very enjoyable read.
The only thing I did NOT enjoy was the rationalization by Ryan's mother of his stealing. She actually concluded that it would be a sin (!) if he *didn't* steal! And this woman was supposed to be a devout Catholic whom her son would not want to disappoint by missing Easter Mass. Give me a break! When is Nora going to take a realistic look at devoutly orthodox Catholics?
Try HOMEPORT. But for a faster-paced, more exciting look at an interesting profession, try Nora Roberts' THE REEF, a look at treasure hunting and marine archaeology.
The Maine air was bitter cold and frigid as Dr. Miranda Jones returned to the family home after a busy lecture tour. But her blood turned to ice when, out of nowhere, she felt a knife held against her throat.
The unseen assailant stole her bags, slashed her tires . . . and disappeared. Shaken and bruised, Miranda was nonetheless determined to put the assault quickly out of her mind. Then comes a distraction in the form of a summons to Italy to verify the authenticity of a valuable Renaissance bronze of a Medici courtesan known as "The Dark Lady." However, instead of cementing Miranda's position as the leading expert in her field, the job unexpectedly nearly destroys it when her professional judgment is called into question. Emotionally estranged from her mother, her brother immersed in his own troubles-and a bottle-Miranda, desperate to restore her reputation, has no one to turn to . . . except Ryan Boldari, a seductive art thief whose own agenda forces them into a reluctant and uneasy alliance.
Now, it has become frighteningly clear that the incident that day in Maine was not a simple mugging, and that "The Dark Lady" may possess as many secrets as its beautiful namesake once did. For Miranda, forced to rely on herself-and an enigmatic partner who offers her suspicion and an intoxicating passion-the only way home is filled with treachery, deception, and a danger that threatens them all.

I really liked her brother and his girlfriend also and would love to have seen a little more "hot and heavy" with them. You knew they were made for each other.
But Ryan, whew. He is the ideal man. Good thing he's fictional or my husband would have some serious competition. He is definitely on my list of "Fictional Heros I'd Like to Commit Adultery With."
I also loved the surprise ending. That really was the icing.
Keep it Up Nora!!!
