Produktinformation


Mehr über den Autor

Was macht eine Hausfrau und Mutter von zwei Kindern, wenn ein Schneesturm sie von der Außenwelt abschneidet? Nora Roberts schreibt einen Roman, der zwei Jahre später, 1981, unter dem Titel "Rote Rosen für Delia" veröffentlicht wird. Sie denkt sich weitere Geschichten aus und gilt inzwischen mit einer Gesamtauflage ihrer Romane von über 400 Millionen Exemplaren als eine der erfolgreichsten Romanautorinnen weltweit. Nora Roberts wurde 1950 in Silver Spring, Maryland, geboren und ist in zweiter Ehe mit einem Zimmermann verheiratet. Das Paar betreibt gemeinsam einen Buchladen, in dem sicherlich auch die Werke angeboten werden, die sie unter den Pseudonymen J.D. Robb, Jill March oder Sarah Hardesty veröffentlicht.

The week a magazine like Celebrity went to bed was utter chaos. Every department head was in a frenzy. Desks were littered, phones were tied up and lunches were skipped. The air was tinged with a sense of panic that built with every hour. Tempers grew short, demands outrageous. In most offices the lights burned late into the night. The rich scent of coffee and the sting of tobacco smoke were never absent. Rolls of antacids were consumed and bottles of eye drops constantly changed hands. After five years on staff, Lee took the monthly panic as a matter of course.

Celebrity was a slick, respected publication whose sales generated millions of dollars a year. In addition to stories on the rich and famous, it ran articles by eminent psychologists and journalists, interviews with both statesmen and rock stars. Its photography was first-class, just as its text was thoroughly researched and concisely written. Some of its detractors might have termed it quality gossip, but the word quality wasn't forgotten.

An ad in Celebrity was a sure bet for generating sales and interest and was priced accordingly. Celebrity was, in a tough, competitive business, one of the leading monthly publications in the country. Lee Radcliffe wouldn't have settled for less.

"How'd the piece on the sculptures turn out?"

Lee glanced up at Bryan Mitchell, one of the top photographers on the West Coast. Grateful, she accepted the cup of coffee Bryan passed her. In the past four days, she'd had a total of twenty hours' sleep. "Good," she said simply.

"I've seen better art scrawled in alleys."

Though she privately agreed, Lee only shrugged. "Some people like the clunky and obscure."

With a laugh, Bryan shook her head. "When they told me to photograph that red and black tangle of wire to its best advantage, I nearly asked them to shut off the lights."

"You made it look almost mystical."

"I can make a junkyard look mystical with the right lighting." She shot Lee a grin. "The same way you can make it sound fascinating."

A smile touched Lee's mouth but her mind was veering off in a dozen other directions. "All in a day's work, right?"

"Speaking of which—" Bryan rested one slim jean-clad hip on Lee's organized desk, drinking her own coffee black. "Still trying to dig something up on Hunter Brown?"

A frown drew Lee's elegant brows together. Hunter Brown was becoming her personal quest and almost an obsession. Perhaps because he was so completely inaccessible, she'd become determined to be the first to break through the cloud of mystery. It had taken her nearly five years to earn her title as staff reporter, and she had a reputation for being tenacious, thorough and cool. Lee knew she'd earned those adjectives. Three months of hitting blank walls in researching Hunter Brown didn't deter her. One way or the other, she was going to get the story.

Reissue again 7. August 2010
Von wogan - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Sometimes my patience is tested by publishers or authors who keep reissuing their books in tandem, titling them something else and then in small letters on the cover saying `two classic stories". I have a huge respect for Nora Roberts as a writer, and maybe she has no control over how these books are published, but let's start doing it- you can lose fans this way.
Both of these books 'Second Nature' and `Lessons Learned' have already been issued before, both as single books and in tandem with another book, so this is the 3rd go round. It's okay, as long as a customer knows what they are buying. The title `Sweet Rains' is given, not because it necessarily has anything to do with the book.
In the introduction it says: "Second Nature, Lee Radcliffe is definitely dealing with a force of nature, and its name is Hunter Brown". This is a story about a reporter for a celebrity magazine who is looking to get an interview with a reclusive, successful horror story writer. We know what will happen; they fall in love, have problems and then have a happy ending.

In the second novel, `Lessons Learned`, an Italian celebrity chef "enters the world of publicist Juliet Trent's world like a tornado". The scenario is the same; love, problems, happy ending.

Nora Roberts can, and always does draw you into her character's world and thoughts. These two aren't as believable as some of her other stories, but they are pleasing to read the first time. I just really resent a titled compellation that seems to mislead what the stories are about and the fact that they have already been out there on the market, and readily available since 1985 and 1986.

A GREAT STORY AND A NOT SO GREAT STORY 9. Februar 2011
Von Rachel D. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
One of my favorite authors of all times is Nora Roberts. I have read many of her books but not all. I recently read Sweet Rains which is a reprint of two of her stories-- Second Nature, and Lessons Learned. Having never read either of these stories I was excited to find some new to me stories!

Second Nature tells the story of Lee Radcliffe, a high power staff reporter at "Celebrity" magazine. She prides herself on getting the scoop that no one else an get. Her latest project is to get the first ever interview with the reclusive, horror novelist Hunter Brown. After months of research that has lead to nothing but dead ends, Radcliffe get the tip that Brown is going to be a guest speaker at a writer's convention. Given that Radcliffe has a novel that she had begun to write, Lee signs up for the conference as a writer. What follows is a hilarious yet serious tale of living to be what you were born to be, loving even when it goes against what you think is the best parth and about finding the love of your life as you are finding out who you really are.

Lessons Learned tells the story of Juliet Trent, a publicist who has found herself on a cross country tour with a famous chef Carlo Franconi. Trent has her life path figured out, where she is going, how she will get there. Franconi is a world-renowned chef and cookbook author. He takes each day as it comes but is very smart with life lessons. He is also devastatingly handsome. He makes time for fun and life in his life. As the story unfolds, Franconi and Trent find themselves more than just professional business associates. They are complete opposites in professional personality, but personally they are very much alike. What follows is a story of love overcoming challenges that are faced by two driven individuals and how they learn to compromise with one another.

Second Nature kept me intrigued and kept me on the edge of my seat with surprises and twists that I could not see coming. I LOVED, LOVED, LOVED this story! Lessons Learned, in my opinion, was one of Nora Roberts' weaker stories. The story line was hard to stay interested in and at times I wanted to stop reading it as I was tired of what seemed to be the same problem being retold over and over. It was not one of my favorites. Overall, Sweet Rains, is some good and some bad. If and when I reread it, I will probably just reread "Second Nature" and leave "Lessons Learned" for someone else to read.
